H I S T O RY O F 3 0 A R E A LT Y :

30A Realty was founded in June of 1995. As the original 30A real estate company, the first office was established in Seagrove at 3547 East County Highway 30A. Mickey Whitaker and Alice Forrester, with years of experience, teamed up to form the 30A Realty marque. At the time there were only a small handful of brokers in the area. Mickey and Alice realized the need for a new level of service in the real estate market on 30A. The original brand was established using the original 30A highway road sign. While the road sign has evolved, many still remember the image of the road sign as the 30A they know.

MEET THE FOUNDERS:

A L I C E F O R R E S T E R - Alice moved to this area in 1984 and has seen it grow from being a quite sleepy little area of paradise to being a boom of luxury homes and condos. Alice originally worked with the developer of Seagrove Beach, Cube McGee. She witnessed his love for this area. They recognized the uniqueness of this place featuring the Florida oak trees and magnolias growing along the coast. Alice and her husband have raised a daughter and three grandchildren here in South Walton and now have three great grandchildren. Alice loves and understands that then 30A’s beautiful beaches as well as its intrigued bay and rivers are what make it a special place to live and work. Alice has marketed this area since 1985 and has the knowledge of all the areas in South Walton. Alice has helped developers with their investments and individuals find their piece of paradise.

M I C K E Y W H I TA K E R - Mickey has been marketing property in the South Walton Area since 1985. He has worked with several developers during his 30 years in South Walton. There are few brokers in our market today with the knowledge of the market, and history of the area, that Mickey has. With nearly 40 years’ experience selling real estate in South Walton county, Mickey is truly one of the originals!

CLIENT TESTIMONIALS:

Jacob has represented my wife and I in two different real estate transactions now. One was for the purchase of a waterfront bay lot and the other was for the sale of our former home, both in Walton County Florida. Jacob negotiated us a fantastic deal for our bay lot that we have built our full time  house on. He also got us top dollar for our home listing on 30A. With both transactions, he was extremely courteous and answered the phone every time I called. What we love about Jacob is he is straight to the point with no unneeded fluff, it really made us trust his opinion more and set a realistic expectation for our buy and sale. He also went way out of his way to show his appreciation for our business after each closing, which meant a lot. We look forward to working with Jacob and referring any of our friends/ family to him as well for their real estate needs I have known Alice Forrester for thirteen years and during that time bought and sold numerous properties with 30A Realty. One of my first experiences with Alice was sitting in her office and hearing her receive many calls that weren’t necessarily about real estate. They were more about “who do I call for this?” and “where do I go for that?” Everybody knows Alice and that’s for a very good reason. Her honesty, integrity, knowledge and expertise has made her a respected member of the 30A community. I think of her as a real estate encyclopedia and these attributes will make her an invaluable member of your real estate team. I am confident that if Alice doesn’t have firsthand knowledge of a property she will quickly find the pertinent information I need to make an informed decision. Always cheerful, always ready to help, you can count on Alice and 30 A Realty to exceed your expectations. Matt, thank YOU. You were awesome. You always got back to me so quickly. We appreciate everything you did. We will stop in to say “hi” when we finally move there or when we visit again. I will always refer anyone down there looking for a realtor to you. LaRonda Kallmeyer is the agent to call if you are selling or buying a home in the Santa Rosa/30A area of Florida. When we needed to sell a house in the Ventana Dunes community, I searched online for an agent that had a great reputation and could help us with staging, if needed, since we live out of state. What a joy she was to work with! We found her to always be accessible, professional and eager to assist. Not only did she help us with staging, and finding contractors during the inspection phase, but her knowledge of the comps in the market, was invaluable when it came to pricing the listing and negotiating the offers we received. We made a new friend and can’t wait to see her one day when we are back in the area! I commissioned Brad O’Brien of 30A Realty to sell my condo located in The Village of Blue Mountain Beach because I knew of his reputation of being highly knowledgeable about real estate on 30A. His perseverance and his knowledge of the market’s buyers was instrumental in obtaining a “more than expected” selling price for our condo. Our first two contracts fell through due to the buyers’ individual financial issues. However, Brad, due to his expertise regarding the buyers in the 30A market, had a third buyer ready almost immediately to make a generous offer, and the deal was closed shortly afterwards. I recommend Brad to anyone who is looking to buy or sell within the 30A area, especially within The Village of Blue Mountain Beach
