Real Estate Agent Jo Stewart Joins The Premier Property Group
February 20, 2013 by SoWal Staff
The Premier Property Group is proud to announce the addition of Realtor Jo Stewart, the top selling agent in the Sandestin community, to Premier Property Group’s new Grand Boulevard family. Stewart’s real estate knowledge and professionalism is the perfect match for The Premier Property Group’s boutique real estate expertise. Owners Bob Parks, Marie Parks and Keith Flippo are thrilled with Stewart as a key addition to complement their company philosophy, and to provide the style of real estate services essential to the Sandestin and Destin market.
“We’ve achieved great success on 30A because of what our company stands for and the culture of our services; we have now attracted the best realtors due to this. We are honored to have attracted the top realtor in Sandestin, Jo Stewart,” says Premier Property Group Co-Owner, Bob Parks.
As the top agent for Sandestin, Stewart specializes in listing luxury homes for the relocating family market, in addition to families moving up within the different resort and golf communities like Burnt Pine, Kelly Plantation, Caribe and Crystal Beach. An expert in Sandestin and Destin resort communities, Stewart will bring her wealth of knowledge to create the perfect partnership with The Premier Property Group’s expansion into these markets.
Stewart’s extensive knowledge stems from her own relocation story as she and her husband moved from the Washington DC area six years ago to retire. A banking executive and CBS News Correspondent, the husband-wife duo sought a slower pace of life within a resort community brimming with amenities and activities. Burnt Pine was that place and is now home for the Stewarts. Working with her neighbors is an important element to Stewart’s real estate success story, as she can anticipate their real estate needs and fulfill those as a Sandestin resident herself.
"I believe selling real estate is about knowledge and the art of listening. Studying my market seven days a week is essential to servicing my clients. I believe in patiently listening to my buyers and sellers because this is not about what I want them to do, it's about their needs. This philosophy is what helped me reach the top ranks of corporate banking in Washington, D.C. and the top echelon of real estate agents in Florida. I am confident it will also serve my clients and myself well at The Premier Property Group - where client service has long been a proud tradition.” says Jo Stewart, Realtor.
“The new Grand Boulevard office and family will bridge a gap for Sandestin and Destin agents wanting to dip their toes into the 30A market with our roots already firmly planted there, while giving our 30A agents and clients a great connection into a market they may not have otherwise explored.” states Bob Parks.
“Another great draw for this location is the Spring 2013 opening of the movie theatre across from our office. We anticipate high foot traffic through Grand Boulevard and a new energy as South Walton gets its very first theatre.” says Flippo.
The Premier Property Group is currently interviewing REALTORS© for the Grand Boulevard Office. Agents interested should contact Managing Broker, Murray Balkcom at 1-877-213-2290.
