As a near native of Fort Walton Beach, having graduated from FWBHS and Okaloosa Walton College, I can honestly say I love my hometown! I have spent my entire adult life living, working, worshiping, raising children, and enjoying our first grandchild, right here in Fort Walton Beach.

This belief creates a passion for serving others and providing the guidance they need to successfully realize their dream of home ownership.
