    Whitney fell in love with Destin nearly 30 years ago, after sailing with friends from Gulfport to Destin. She was surprised to find a place where the sand truly is sugar-white, and the water truly is crystal-blue...just like you see in post cards! For years, Whitney dreamed of making Destin her home and in 2010, she finally did. It was only natural that she continue her real estate career on this beautiful coast - a place that she now calls home.

    Before moving to Destin, and escaping the cold Michigan winters, she dabbled in real estate with her own investments until she just had to get her license! Whitney loves the thrill of buying and selling. She loves previewing great homes and seeing potential in fixer-uppers. Most of all, Whitney loves helping others see the potential in a great home or condo.

    Whitney has two great kids. She is an alumna of Oakland University in Rochester, Michigan. Whitney loves anything to do with the water, and she travels as much as she can!

    Whitney would love the opportunity to help you find a great home, or vacation home for you and your family. She will bring all her passion and enthusiasm to your property search, and make the whole experience one you will truly look forward to. If you are a seller, Whitney will work endlessly to make sure your home is well represented, sold in a timely manner, and closes with ease.

    Send Whitney a message.
