When we think of finding good value on 30a, there are two key components we look for to help determine value.  The first thing we look at is the price per square foot of the property being offered for sale.  This is an excellent way to compare against other properties that have recently sold or are listed for sale.  The second component we look at is the listing price of the property offered for sale in relationship to the price of other properties in the same community or area.  It is normally good practice to buy one of the lowest priced homes in a quality community rather than buying the highest priced home in a neighborhood.

When you are able to find a property that offers either of these value components, you have in all likelihood gotten a good deal!  If you achieve both value components, you have gotten a great deal!!  Give us a call, text, or email today so we can help you find a good value on 30a.


South Walton Florida is a popular nesting spot for sea turtles.  The two most common species are Green Sea Turtles and Loggerheads.  The months of May through October are the times that the turtles build their nests in the sand and the hatchlings appear.

Loggerheads can reach weights up to 350 pounds and be up to 3 feet in length.  Females nest every two to four years and return to the exact same spot they were born to lay their eggs.  During nesting season, a female will create four to seven nests and lay more than 100 eggs in each nest.  After about 60 days, the eggs will hatch.  The light color of our sand affects the temperature of the nest, resulting in more male hatchlings than females.

To help protect our turtles and insure the greatest chance of success for their hatchlings, here are some helpful tips:

  1.  Keep the beaches clean and remove all belongs when you leave.
  2.  Keep the beaches dark at night.  Lighting can disorient the turtles.
  3.  Obtain a permit before constructing a beach bonfire and never build near a turtle nest.
  4.  Don’t leave holes on the beach.

The marine and wildlife population is a vital part of life on 30a.  Let’s all do our part to protect it while we enjoy it.


When it comes to sharing with clients the communities I feel are the most special along 30A, none get more praise from me than the one I live in, Watersound West Beach.  My opinion is obviously very subjective because I have a real love for where I live.  I have so many wonderful neighbors and friends and there is so much of nature’s beauty just outside my door.  The only thing I’m saddened by is when one of our neighbors decides to sell their home.  Well, my loss of a neighbor will become my gain of a new friend.  Whomever decides to purchase 247 Plimsoll Way is going to get a spectacular lakefront home!  I am so excited about being able to offer this property for sale.  The home features just over 3000 square feet of living area with stunning beach furnishings and decor.  Two huge patios overlook the lake with a summer kitchen and flat screen TV.  Inside you will find 4 bedrooms, including a large first floor master suite, and 4 1/2 baths.  The home is full of upgraded features and is being offered fully furnished.  This property is ideal for a permanent resident, a second home, or a vacation rental home.  And best of all, you have private access to one of 30A’s most secluded scenic beaches along Deer Lake State Park.  Please contact me to find out more about this property.  It is a real gem!


When my husband and I began our search for 30a homes for sale, our first priority was to find a community that fulfilled our lifestyle desires.  Our hope was to find a place that had great beach access, amenities to keep us active and fit, eye appealing common areas, easy access to shopping and restaurants, and finally, a nice home.

I admit the selection process was difficult when you consider having communities like Rosemary Beach, Watercolor, Seaside, Watersound, and several others to choose from.  However, our selection of Watersound West Beach has turned out to be the perfect piece of 30a real estate for us.  At the time of our quest, our primary goal was to find a great beach.   Believe me, we found it!  Our private beach access at Watersound West Beach is breathtaking and priceless.  We have the beauty of Deer Lake State Park directly east of our boardwalk offering gorgeous sea dunes and a coastal dune lake, with about a mile of shoreline giving us a great amount of space and seclusion for sunset strolls.

But our greatest benefit of living at Watersound West Beach has turned out to be the friendships we have been blessed with by meeting and having fun times with our neighbors.  Our neighborhood formed a supper club that meets quarterly, allowing all of us to get to know each other better.  From these gatherings, we have formed bonds with many that enable us to enjoy friendships that are so important to have in life.  I can go on and on about how happy we are with our decision.

The point I want to make is owning 30a real estate is great for a vacation spot, but it can also be a great place to call home.  There are great communities and wonderful people along 30a that will bring great fulfillment to your life just like they have to ours.  Why don’t you consider coming and being a part of a 30a community?

You can go for the old charm of a beach cottage or a modern design beach style retreat.
