Born and raised in Birmingham, Annie received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the University of Alabama. Next stop was Houston, where she was introduced to and worked in the financial industry over the next few years. Longing to be near the ocean and see what the west coast was all about, she transferred to Los Angeles and worked for a real estate developer/art collector. Annie and her son Kaiman moved to the Destin – Scenic 30A area in 1990.

She has been active in real estate sales in South Walton since 2001, following the changing markets as well as knowing the nuances of all the beach towns along this gorgeous 19-mile stretch. This career seems to be the perfect blend: art, financial and real estate.

“It has been invaluable to have experienced the historical past several years in real estate. And so rewarding to be a part of Alys Beach- where the world’s most captivating architecture nestles alongside the world’s most beautiful beach,” says Annie.

Having grown up in Atlanta, choosing to attend the University of Georgia was an easy decision for Ben. After receiving a business and marketing degree from UGA’s Terry College of Business School, he pursued his dream of big wave surfing with a move to Hawaii. It was there that he worked for Discovery Land Company’s premier private community, Kukio, which is home to some of Hawaii’s finest luxury real estate.

Like so many, Ben grew up vacationing along 30A and will be the first to tell you that some of his best memories were made along this stretch of coast. He considers it a great honor to take part in seeing others come alive to all that Alys Beach has to offer.

Alys Beach is the most unique development on the Emerald Coast as well as the state of Florida.
