When my husband and I decided to purchase a second property on Cape San Blas, Julia Cunningham was the only agent we wanted to work with. She is intimately familiar with the area–having lived on the Cape for many years–and is diligent in all aspects of her job. Julia will go above and beyond in the search for that perfect sale by researching both listed and not-yet listed properties thus giving her clients considerably more options. It is obvious after meeting Julia that she loves her job and loves living on the Cape. Her involvement in numerous local organizations and her high standing in the community makes her a valuable resource in all aspects of the real estate process. Julia has many local contacts to provide her clients with answers to any questions that may arise concerning financing, zoning, permitting, building, etc. We have recommended and will continue to recommend Julia to all of our friends and to any individuals we meet who express interest in purchasing property on the Forgotten Coast.
We had been looking for quite some time to find the “perfect” lot on which to build our forever home at Cape San Blas. Julia found it…the lot was not listed or even for sale, but she worked diligently with the seller to agree to sell to us and we’ll always be grateful for that. She is incredibly knowledgeable of the market and knows how to make a deal. She’s a people person and we found her very easy to work with. She represented our needs very well. If you’re buying (or selling), do yourself a favor and work with Julia…fantastic experience.
Julia is an unusually hard-working and resourceful person. My wife and I wanted to sell two rental units we owned on Cape San Blas, and also several building lots owned by our two daughters. I discussed this with several brokers. None of them had any ideas beyond simply listing the lots with them. Julia called me, arranged an appointment in my house, and presented a fully developed marketing plan. She was so impressive and enthusiastic that I decided to go with her by the time she was halfway through her presentation. The confidence was well placed because she came back with the first sale within two days. Equally important, she prepared a superb website within days, kept me informed, asked intelligent questions, and within a week knew almost as much about the properties as I. In short, if you want a really good and effective realtor, Julia would be an excellent choice.
“I have known Preston for over 10 years. I’ve known him as a buyer, seller and friend. In my opinion there is no better Real Estate in our area or anywhere near it. He is totally honest, trustworthy, not greedy nor pushy. He is everything one would want representing you.”
“Beth Embert was instrumental in the sale of my home. Her expert advice and skillful handling of the details of the settlement made the buyers and me confident that everything was done right! I have already engaged her to sell another property for me.”
“Coastal Realty had our beach house listed for only six months before it actually sold. This short term sale is unheard of in today’s real estate market. Thanks to the relentless efforts of Preston Russ and the staff at Coastal. We are so happy that we went Coastal!”
“There are a handful of people I trust implicitly in my life. Preston is one of those few. I am thankful that I know Preston and recommend him to anyone without hesitation.”
