New Blog PostWelcome Snowbirds!

It’s that time of year again when the Emerald Coast plays host to the annual migrating flocks of Snowbirds! Yes, those lucky folks who have perfected not only how to survive winter, but how to live it to the fullest along our Gulf coast of Northwest Florida.

They not only keep our rental properties booked, but also boost sales among our local restaurants, retail shops, golf resorts, and entertainment establishments. So “welcome” snowbirds!  ResortQuest is sponsoring The Winter Guest Fest, Thursday January 15th 8 am - noon at the Emerald Coast Convention Center.

The Nathan Abbott Teams donates to Emerald Coast Toys for Tots

The Nathan Abbott Team was honored to be a drop off location for The Emerald Coast Toys for Tots again this year. The outpouring of toys from our friends, neighbors, clients and business associates was astounding! We collected toys at our office in Miramar Beach and last week at an open house we hosted at one of our listings, a beautiful waterfront estate at 1780 Driftwood Point Road in Santa Rosa Beach. Since 2003, the Emerald Coast Association of Realtors, under the coordination of Ashley Botelho, has partnered with the Marine Corps League Detachment 915 and U.S. Marine Corp Toys for Tots program. Already to date, 10,215 children in Okaloosa and Walton counties alone will be receiving a toy this Christmas, who might not otherwise.


Even though our toy drop off deadline is past, it’s not too late to donate toys. Give Ashley Botelho-Jones a call at 850-533-6219 or click here to make an online donation. ...

When considering selling your home, the first gems of advice are to de-clutter, de-personalize, and to stage your home. But what does that mean?

First off, hiring an experienced real estate agent who is an expert in preparing a home for market both aesthetically as well as financially is key. A good realtor will explain the need to de-clutter and de-personalize by packing away the majority of your knick knacks along with your personal family photos. When potential buyers walk into your home, they need to see somewhat of a blank canvas. That way, they can visualize their own décor and family photos on the walls. They need to see a minimal amount of your furniture in each room so they can visualize their own furniture in place.
