Properties for Sale in the Emerald Coast
Thank you for visiting the Dawn Hughes real estate website. You will find property search tools to view all listings in the Emerald Coast Multiple Listings (MLS) service. For your convenience, we have provided quick searches by areas and communities to save you time. This site covers listings in Northwest Florida in an area also known as the Emerald Coast. Some of our communities we cover along the gulf coast here in the panhandle of Florida are Fort Walton Beach, Niceville, Bluewater Bay, Destin, Sandestin, Miramar Beach, Santa Rosa Beach and Navarre. We also cover Crestview in North Okaloosa County and its surrounding area. If you’re still not sure where we are, we cover the area between Panama City and Pensacola, Florida.
Those in the military are probably familiar with this area not so much by the community names as by the base names: Eglin Air Force Base, Hurlburt Field and Duke Field. Eglin Air Force Base is one of the largest military bases (in land mass) in the world. Our area has become a popular PCS destination for active military personnel and their families, as well as a popular place to retire from the military.
A Bit About The Emerald Coast
Ask someone their impression of the Emerald Coast and the first thing they will probably answer “snow white beaches and emerald waters”. In fact our crystalline sandy beaches and vivid waters have received national and international acclaim. If you like to fish, you’ll love these emerald waters. Destin is known as the Luckiest Fishing Village in the world. If you like golf, this area has dozens of championship golf courses. Tennis? We have that too. Shopping? You bet. We have colorful, quaint local boutiques and we have the Destin Commons and Silver Sands Designer Outlet Center – the largest designer discount shopping experience in the country.
Besides its world-famous beaches, the Emerald Coast is known for fresh seafood, great cooking, and an incredible variety of memorable restaurants. Visit our Emerald Coast Cooks page for local cuisine, food markets, recipes and restaurant information. Visit my recipe blog for new Emerald Coast recipes that I think represent what our area has to offer.
