Welcome to June! Summer has finally arrived! 

Your humble real estate broker took Memorial Day off, rented a boat and took his wife, Sherill along with our granddaughter, Kimberlie and her husband, Brandon Thron as well as our unbelievably happy 16 month old great granddaughter, Roxanne to the tip of our MESMERIZING Cape San Blas.  It was absolutely beautiful  out there.  If you have not taken this trip, then you definitely should add this to your bucket list.  Click the link below to see a few pictures on our facebook page. 

We have a wonderful area that is not crowded and with no high rises stretching from Mexico Beach all the way to Carrabelle.  We have some outstanding agents that can get you fully informed of all of our surrounding areas.  Come and visit us so that you to can enjoy our emerald waters of the Famous Forgotten Coast!

Let's look at what happened last month on the Forgotten Coast.
