Selling real estate locally since 1987 with nearly half a billion dollars sold to date!
I have lived and worked in the Sandestin, Santa Rosa Beach, and Destin area for over 30 years, allowing me to become an expert in the local market. These years of experience have granted me intrinsic knowledge of the area, giving me the ability to have a fantastic pulse on market conditions and awareness of the many factors that influence the real estate industry locally.
My clients' interests and concerns are my priority, and I maintain continual communication throughout the buying and selling process. I intend for the connections that I make with my clients to be lifelong, knowing that the first transaction is only the beginning of a great relationship.
Evolving with the industry, I apply the latest technological solutions to meet your real estate needs. Multi-media marketing strategies, digital and print advertising, and virtual tours are just a few of the methods I employ to best promote and research properties for my clients.
My passion is connecting with people and helping their real estate dreams become reality. I would love to put my energies and expertise to work for you!
** Testimonials **
Extremely pleased and impressed with Brad on many counts - very straightforward and professional, always found a way to keep balance and momentum in communications and negotiations. Offered "above and above" assistance whenever needed. Will not hesitate to use him as a Buyer having watched him in action as a Seller - true pro. – Lee T.
We have worked with Brad for many years. He was incredibly patient with us and helped us find exactly the right place for us. We loved it for 15 years and then of course called Brad when we were ready to sell. He helped us price the place correctly in such a way that we had a full price offer in the first week…an incredibly fair offer that closed easily. I watched activity in similar places during the 2016-17 time frame and our sale in May 2017 was one of the only good sales! My husband and I speak often of how lucky we were to work with Brad. We highly recommend him! – Donna S.
My husband and I have known Brad since 1996. We purchased our first condo from him. We could not have been more pleased. Since then he has sold us 2 more condos and sold 1. Every time was just as professional as our first experience. He has always been honest, fair, and always done exactly what he said he would do. He gets an A+ from me!! - Carolyn L.
We were referred to Brad Smith by close friends who were familiar with the Destin area and so pleased with the referral. Brad is everything one would want in a realtor. He is responsive and available, professional, knowledgeable and has a great pulse on market conditions. More importantly, he is super easy to work with and went above and beyond in every category. Brad is and will remain our "go-to" realtor. – Mike S.
Brad helped us with our relocation from Brentwood, TN. He constantly kept us updated whenever a property hit the market. Brad steered us away from bad investments and them found us a perfect home to match our changing lifestyle. Then he found us office space and warehousing to relocate our business. After that he found my son and wife a place to all home. He did all of this within five months. He always took my calls and answered my million questions. He directed us to lenders, sub-contractors, insurance, where to buy a golfcart and even his favorite restaurant. He introduced us to people and checked in on us after the move. Looking back, I am grateful for his guidance and advice. – Becky P.
We have worked with Brad over 10 years and three transactions and he is by far the best we have ever worked with. On the buying side his style is much more of an advisor than a salesman. He listens very well and gives his clients space. He knows the market cold. On top of all that, he is a genuinely nice person, the kind you would invite to dinner. – Mark R.
We were connected to Brad by our Michigan Berkshire Hathoway realtor as we were looking for a Florida House. He exceeded ALL of our expectations for transparency, urgency, response time, availability, knowledge, comfort level and negotiation. He was with us every step of the way which we needed since we were 1000 miles away. At one point we had a last minute emergency and had to fly home, leaving Brad picking up some important pieces, which of course he did. After the sale, he kept in touch, making sure we were pleased and everything was going smooth. He helps us find a good fishing charter and golf game a year later. It is no surprise that when our friends decided to also buy in Florida, we recommended and they utilized Brad for their purchase too. Probably what I liked best is in a market that could be a little snobby (we were buying a large home) he was so open, kind and gracious. NEVER did we feel out of place or uninformed. - Ada M.
