Wise Home Buying Tips for Resale Investors on the Emerald Coast

Alys Beach and Rosemary Beach Aerial Tour

Take a gorgeous aerial tour of two of Florida’s luxurious beach communities. Alys Beach and Rosemary Beach are two of the most luxurious communities along Florida’s Gulf Coast. Both of these amazing, masterplanned, urban communities are extremely pedestrian-friendly.
When you’re in Alys Beach, you feel like you’re in the Greek Isles with all the whitewall architectural design, the broken stone walkways, greenspaces, and other amazing amenities.
The neighboring Rosemary Beach is also extremely special, with beautiful contemporary design properties that are reminiscent of a European coastal town. CNN recently named Rosemary Beach as one of America’s most romantic towns, and for good reason—you’re surrounded by amazing parks, greenspaces, restaurants, shopping centers, and other family entertainment venues.

Amanda Abbott - The Surfing Realtor

Our very own Amanda Abbott, lovingly known as "The Surfing Realtor"
Amanda is a fantastic real estate agent who enjoys exploring all that Northwest Florida has to offer. Amanda and Nathan's dad and uncle started one of the first real estate companies in the area—Abbott Martin Group. Nathan jumped into the real estate business soon after college, but Amanda explored a little before returning home and becoming an agent in her own right.

If you grew up in Northwest Florida like the Abbotts have, it can be easy to take the beauty around us for granted. However, Amanda is constantly exploring. She surfs, paddleboards, and motorbikes all around the area. “I’ve traveled all over the world, and I still think it’s one of the nicest places to be,” she says.
