My wife, Tammy and I have never written a letter to the editor before, but would like to take this opportunity to relay our recent experience of purchasing coastal property in the Port St. Joe area.
After vacationing in the area for several years, we grew very fond of the natural beauty, of the relaxed lifestyle and most especially of the warm and friendly people who call the area home. We decided we would fulfill a long time dream of ours to own coastal real estate.
Having spent 35-plus years in the construction and real estate development business in Tennessee, I had a basic understanding of the complexity of coastal real estate investment but most of all understood the importance of competent representation.
To educate ourselves, we started reading Sherri Dodsworth’s (Boardwalk Realty) blog, and over time, recognized and appreciated her commitment to informing others about the Cape San Blas, Indian Pass and Port St. Joe real estate market. We contacted Sherri, and on our next trip met with her, beginning our journey to find beach property for our planned cottage.
Some months later after having Sherri help us build an adequate foundation of knowledge, we felt comfortable moving forward with our purchase. We are looking forward to spending more and more time in the Port St. Joe area.
