haute realty Catching up with Larry Davis, Owner of Davis Properties Celebrating 25 Years davisprop.com / 4130 E Hwy 30A, Seagrove Beach / 850.231.2025

Larry Davis has been a South Walton local for thirty years. After the passing of his father, he renewed his relationship with his half-brother and Seaside founder, Robert Davis, and moved to the panhandle in 1987. Initially Larry worked with Seaside Group Sales and Cottage Rental Agency. In 1993 he established his own real estate company, Davis Properties of Northwest Florida, Inc.

• Conduct business with honesty and integrity • Putting their clients’ needs and financial goals first • Strive to increase the team’s indepth market knowledge • Provide insightful information that is of value to their clients The next generation is on the horizon at Davis Properties and their future is looking very bright! Larry’s daughter, Chandler, recently earned her Florida real estate license and is interning with Davis Properties this summer. Chandler is a Jim Moran School of Entrepreneurship BS candidate at Florida State University and is excited to learn all the ins and outs of the industry here in South Walton from her father. Always an optimist, Larry Davis remains excited and very hopeful for the future of his company and the beach community he loves!

Davis cares deeply about the communities of South Walton and its future. His family-first values and strong business ethic continue to drive the growth of his independently owned real estate firm. 2018 marks Davis Properties’ 25th anniversary in business. Despite being a small, core group of highly dedicated professionals, Davis and his team earned the distinction of being ranked in the top 3% out of nearly 1100 real estate firms within the Emerald Coast Association of Realtors in 2017.

Haute Culture: Diving into the Arts The Cultural Arts Alliance of Walton County (CAA) in partnership with the South Walton Artificial Reef Association (SWARA) will introduce the Underwater Museum of Art (UMA) this Summer. The UMA is North America’s first underwater permanent sculpture exhibit! A one-acre patch of seabed off Grayton Beach State Park has been dedicated for the purpose of this exhibit. The Underwater Museum will create a sustainable marine habitat and expand fish populations in South Walton while also providing enhanced cultural and educational opportunities for residents and visitors of South Walton. And while this museum does not require an official entry fee, in order to visit it, diving gear and a boat ride to the dive site will be needed.

Vince Tatum and his sculpture, “SWARA Skull”

The CAA and SWARA revealed the seven sculptures selected for the first installation of the UMA at a fabulous fundraiser at Grand Boulevard. Featuring a concert by Shawn Mullins, our Haute Finds South Walton team was there to soak up all the details of this amazing new local amenity!

HAUTE KITCHEN DESIGN TIPS

∙ Start with simple updates such as new hardware or replacing existing lighting.

∙ Have restraint and leave white spaces for eyes to rest; less is more. ∙ Draw from family history and mix modern design with personal heirloom pieces.

HAUTE SUMMERTIME ENTERTAINING

∙ Prep Ahead - form those burger patties, assemble the crudite, and mix up dips before guests arrive.

∙ Create an Atmosphere - be it a signature cocktail or a themed playlist, have fun with hosting!

∙ Utilize Your Space - tuck away the mail, the toaster, and any clutter non-essential to your party.

∙ Don’t Skip Dessert - whether it’s homemade or simply fresh berries atop | summer 2018

a store- bought pound cake, offering something sweet is always sweet.

∙ Relax - your guests pick up on your home’s vibe. Shrug off any hiccups and turn up the tunes!

Non-Profit Spotlight: The Foye Belle Foundation The Foye Belle Foundation was started by South Walton local, Chelsea Berler. Last summer, Chelsea received a Stage 4 Triple Negative Breast Cancer diagnosis at only 33 years old. As she started chemo, she was gifted items from friends and family to make her treatment time more comfortable. Looking around the room each week, she was struck by how many fellow cancer patients did not have any comfort items of their own. Many cancer foundations raise money for research and patient care. Chelsea’s vision for the Foye Belle Foundation (named for her grandmother who also fought breast cancer) was to create a network of support. The Foye Belle Foundation ships FREE Blue Bags to those going through some form of treatment. The items packed in their Blue Bags may simply help make time pass, ease symptoms, or provide a much-needed smile. Fill out the request form on their website to request a Blue Bag be shipped to a friend or family member battling breast cancer.

Chelsea Berler

Foye Belle is made up of volunteers and 100% of donations go into creating Blue Bags for individuals in need. In Chelsea’s words: This is what our world needs more of...Community, Unity, and Love. Make someone’s day a little less blue. For more information on how to request a Blue Bag or donate to The Foye Belle Foundation visit their website foyebelle.org or follow them on Instagram @foyebellefoundation. foyebelle.org

The space is gorgeous; full of light with 12 foot ceilings and treasures everywhere you look. Visit and see this South Walton gem for yourself!
