30A Luxury Homes Real Estate Search


“Debbie James met our highest expectations as a realtor for the 30 A area.

We decided to buy on 30 A after our Bay Point vacation home was severely damaged during Hurricane Michael. While viewing places on line, Debbie immediately noticed our searches and offered to help.

Debbie never gave up on us and was gently persuasive in finding our dream place in Watersound Beach. She was always available for showings as we had to travel a couple of hours to view them.

Not only did she do an excellent job of facilitating the closing, but continued to provide help as we transitioned into moving into our new home. She offered names for reliable housekeepers, handymen, locksmiths and plumbers. Dare I mention her lovely welcome/thank you basket of goodies at closing sustained us through our first week at Watersound during the Cororavirus social-distancing time.

My husband, Paul, and I would highly recommend Debbie James to anyone seeking to buy real estate. It was truly a joy to work with her. It has also been a great honor to consider her as a friend.”

Sincerely, Barbara and Paul Flowers

“Debbie James is a wonderful agent. She is professional, knowledgeable, friendly, reliable, and trustworthy, all of which is hard to find! We have been working with her for years and look forward to working together in the future.”. – Timothy Wang

“We cannot say enough good things about Debbie James! We have personally worked with Debbie on a number of transactions from both the buyer and seller side. She has been very patient with us through the years for we have looked at a LOT of properties! As one knows, many times there are questions about a property or the best route to take in a transaction. You can trust Debbie to know what to do. Debbie has a lot of experience so she can usually answer any questions you have, but we were always impressed with her willingness to find the answers to our questions if she didn’t know them. Debbie is always professional, trustworthy, and discreet. We have recommended her to both friends and relatives. When you finish buying or selling property with Debbie, you will not only have a great resource for future realty needs, but you will also make a new friend!”. – Chuck and Melissa Mayfield

“Debbie was extremely helpful in the search and purchase of our condo at Miramar Beach. Since we live out of state and were shopping remotely, Debbie talked to us over the phone to determine properties that would fit our needs. She compiled a thorough list of properties and patiently spent two days showing us our favorites. With her expert guidance and use of electronic paperwork, the offer and closing processes were flawless and worry free. Since we were unable to attend the closing, she even did the final walk through and picked up the keys for us. We highly recommend Debbie and would certainly welcome the opportunity to work with her again.”. – Merrill & Susan Culverhouse

“Debbie James has done such a great job for my wife and I in every aspect of our dealings with her. Over the last 3 years she has sold two homes for us and helped us to buy three. The ‘value’ she brings with her wealth of experience, local knowledge and professionalism cannot be over-stated. As a buyer’s agent working with a National builder she saved us money using her negotiating skills. Debbie is well-known in the community and respected by her colleagues. If you want a results oriented professional who is a great listener yet unafraid to offer professional advice or opinions – Debbie is perfect for you”. – John & Lesley Leahy

Hello from Ambler, Pennsylvania,

We went to settlement with Debbie James, in November, and wanted to let you know what a professional, flawless job she did at settlement and everything leading up to that date.

For background, a few years ago we vacationed in Pensacola, loved the beach, but felt the lack of restaurants and amenities was a real negative. Fast forward to a Sandestin vacation in November ’12 where we fell in love with the Emerald Coast and all it had to offer. We spent a few days with her to find our true love on 30A, at WSWB. In Feb we went back and signed the agreement of sale to build. We always felt respected and that we were her only client. Always reminding us gently, but persistently, that the market had changed and inventory was being sold. During the building phase, she took pictures and stepped as necessary.

We have never owned a vacation home, but took the plunge with a complete stranger in an area we just discovered that required 2 flights on Delta to get to. Frankly, she is pretty good at the soft sell.

Just wanted you to hear this from a client’s (who is now a friend) perspective what a great job Debbie did for us. I trust your new business relationship will be fantastic!

Happy holidays,

“Debbie is one of the best agents I have worked with both personally and professionally. Personally, she took over the listing of my home in Destin and sold it within 30 days! She successfully negotiated the asking price and coordinated all repair/maintenance which were required of me as the Seller.

On the professional side Debbie has successfully sold great pieces of real estate. From the one bedroom condo fixer upper to multi million dollar home. Recently, she introduced me to one of her clients who bought a condominium and needed it upgraded. She referred them to my store Consign Mint Boutique / Haus of Abood and worked hand in hand with me through the process in what ultimately became an exquisite project that her client loved!!!

Her connections throughout the community are a win win for anyone who is looking to buy or sell. She knows her market, her clients and what both long term home owners and second home owners who want to list their homes on the rental market and can guide you through the process!!” –Nancy Abood

“Debbie has been excellent. This is my second transaction with her.” –Ken Barber, President & CEO Metro Bank

“In my 20 plus years of purchasing and selling properties, I have never had a more customer-focused and communicative agent than Debbie. Simply outclasses anyone I have had the pleasure to work with. Debbie was extremely involved and communicated throughout the entire process. Her mos salient skill is making the client feel comfortable during the process. Very friendly approach.” –Gerrard Fusco

“Debbie was always accessible for discussions after normal business hours – i.e. nights & weekends. Very professional, patient (our process took roughly 2 years), readily available anytime, and most importantly, she had our best intentions in mind.” –Mark & Jennifer Chastain

“Debbie is a rare find among Realtors. She actually cares about her Clients before and after the sale. Referrals to decorator and contractors outstanding/trustworthy.” –Jeff Johannes

“Debbie is extremely professional and worked hard on behalf of her client (me!). Her consistently positive demeanor is a definite plus during negotiation.” –Ken Heinz

“Debbie was an amazing agent, she was always available to show me houses whenever I needed and was very helpful showing me around and attentive to my needs. She was very patient and even though it seemed to take forever for me to find a house she never got frustrated with me or tried to push me to make a decision, I feel she was always looking out for my best interest and would definitely recommend her to a friend and in fact have in the past when we have new people come into the office.” –Jazika Levario – SSgt USAF, Paralegal- Eglin Air Force Base

“Great experience. Always was positive (even after the 30 houses and offers) to find and look at more places. Really put in a huge effort into getting and knowing what I wanted.” –John Scavone – 2nd Lt, USAF – Eglin Air Force Base

“Debbie was absolutely wonderful. She got us from the start and didn’t waste time showing us things that didn’t fit our needs. She always responded to every call…and there were many! Thank you for making our dream come true!” –Shawna & Josh Bruner

“In this busy, crazy world we live in…you are the most positive person I have ever met. Four years ago when Tom and I met you, we instantly felt a strong sense of confidence and trust. After our first investment transaction with you it was apparent we were right. We are grateful for all that you have done for us even if it was not in your best interest. We are living our dream in a vacation home in ‘Paradise’. Thank you, Thank you. Yours very truly,” –Rhonda and Tom Corrigan, Louisville, KY

“Debbie gets the information I need, provides good insight, and focuses on details to deliver a smooth transaction”. –Ken Heinz
