to be an extraordi-

With hard work and dedication to our customers’ goals, our team surpassed its goal of half a billion dollars in annual sales, capping the year at $535,614,217! We are excited to share with you the steps we have already taken to achieve even greater feats in 2017.

Though opportunities in the market over the 19 years we’ve been in business may have shifted our physical presence to 30A, our roots are in Destin and we couldn’t be more excited to have a dedicated physical presence there once again.

here is nothing like coming home again, and Kent Stewart should know. A longtime homeowner at Rosemary Beach, Stewart has spent

the last decade climbing the world’s highest mountains on the seven continents. Today, only Everest remains. After a few setbacks, including when Kent was

at Everest Base Camp in 2015 when the devastating earthquake hit Nepal and twenty two lives were lost on the mountain, a commitment to climb Everest successfully is still a goal.

“There are so many wonderful options in Rosemary Beach,” Kent offers. “We love having a cocktail or glass of wine at The Pearl’s Rooftop Lounge. We also enjoy having lunch at the Summer Kitchen Café and dinner at Restaurant Paradis. Wine tastings at Wild Olives are popular and Willow Boutique is a shopping favorite of Julie’s.” But with Rosemary Beach centrally located to other beach communities along 30A, it’s easy to hop on your bike and find yourself at some other nearby favorites. “We also love George’s at Alys Beach and the

has the complete support of his family, particularly Julie, who has successfully climbed five of the seven summits along with him. He even admits that early on she was the stronger partner on some of their climbs. “Climbing,” according to Kent, “is a mental grind. It’s a long time to be away from home. The climbs are usually in a hostile environment and every move you make is difficult at such high altitudes.” Yet the motivation to complete Everest remains strong. “Climbing has totally changed our lives and I wonder what type person I’d be without having done this.” But he is the first to admit that there is life after Everest. During his last attempt in April of 2016, Stewart was diagnosed with what was thought to be HAPE (High Altitude Pulmonary Edema) and his climb was ended. Upon returning to Birmingham, he was instead told he had three coronary blockages and was immediately rushed into surgery. In a matter of just a few weeks Kent went from training for Mount Everest to recovering from open heart surgery. “I used to think that I could never be satisfied if I didn’t eventually stand on top of the world. I made the mistake of connecting my self worth to reaching the summits of these great peaks. I was slow to realize that, in the end, it is the journey that really matters...maybe that’s the answer I was seeking all along.” Staying active is something that Kent vows to continue long after the climbing is over. Asked what a perfect day in Rosemary would be, he didn’t hesitate. “For us, it is a bike ride from Rosemary to the opposite end of 30A. We have lunch at Stinky’s Fish Camp and then take our time biking home. A cocktail on the beach with friends has become a tradition followed by a nice dinner at one of the area’s outstanding restaurants.” But, first, there’s a mountain to climb

WATERCOLOR EXPANDS BEACH CLUB & CAMP

L

et’s talk about the beloved community of WaterColor on Scenic Highway 30-A and the journey that will take the beach resort to an even higher level of excellence. In order to ensure that the amenities

offered at WaterColor are world class, the resort will undergo some significant changes. To understand the enhancements, we recently talked to Brad Yuhas with Capital Consultants Management Corporation, the Property Manager for WaterColor.

According to Brad he let us know “the goal of this expansion project is to enhance the WaterColor experience and alleviate overcrowding at the Beach Club by improving and expanding both the Beach Club and Camp WaterColor areas.” To most effectively use both spaces, the projects will be completed together. The improvements to Camp WaterColor are slated to include additional pools to complement the existing pool, as well as food and beverage service. Through these additions to the Camp, the hope is that it will become a more popular destination and draw people away from and relieve the Beach Club. The Beach Club expansion will triple the current pool size, therefore better meeting the demand put on the Beach Club especially during peak times. By constructing new pools and enhancing the poolside food service, the Images shown are conceptual drawings and may not depict the final product. 36

MARKET REPORT 2015 | 2016 COMPARISON

Predicting how the real estate market will perform year-to-year is never a given formula of what we can predict or expect; however, it is useful to look at how our market has behaved over the last 15 years, and consider the events that led us to where we are now in order to more clearly anticipate the future. From 2002 to 2016, we experienced some ups and downs in our housing market. We persisted through challenges posed to the market between 2006 and 2010, and began our ascent back to prosperity in 2011. In fact, by the end of 2012, home prices along the Emerald Coast saw the largest year-over-year increase in more than two years. Gaining momentum and building our way back up, we have been fortunate to see a significant increase in sales volume on the Emerald Coast every year since 2012. As it happens, from 2004, when sales last peaked, to 2016, our market has seen a 32% increase in total sales volume, and the forecast is optimistic for 2017 and beyond!

having to get our food from other areas, we’ll be able to get it from the north end to the south end, which will create a lot of internal growth.” At Scenic Sotheby’s International Realty, we join the county employees in their desire to educate developers and citizens on the restrictions and requirements that may be in force in Walton County. For example, a builder may be required to have a storm water plan if the house is being built in an older development that was not required to implement one. There is a new service through the county called Citizens Serve on which permits can be requested online. We believe the checklist found online is vitally important when planning construction. Chairwoman Jones spoke for the county when she said, “We are quickly nearing the build out of South Walton and we have a very established development pattern there.

of the board’s foresight and our plan of development, which has been in place since 1996, where you see a natural area, a lot of scrub oak preservation, we limit building height, we require a great deal of set back from the coastal area, and all of those things have come together over the years to create a very unique place.” We applaud the Commissioner and government officials as they reiterated many times that regulations have been put into place to keep Walton County as special and unique as it is. Mr. Svehla concluded the meeting by saying, “Our Scenic Corridor is such a valuable resource to protect as far as the look and the feel and how families live in this area. So, it may be harder for people to get an actual permit, but it’s only harder because we want to be special.”
