For John Paul Somers, progress is underway on an exciting expansion: his real estate brokerage firm will be opening a new office in Grayton Beach.



“I love the Emerald Coast lifestyle, and I’m committed to helping people achieve their dreams of living here and enjoying all that our area has to offer,” Somers says. “Our primary focus is the areas of greater Destin and the Beaches of South Walton, and by opening a new office on Scenic 30-A, we will be better positioned to serve our clients in the area.”



The new office is located at 151 E. County Highway 30-A, just to the west of the communities of Watercolor and Seaside. The former BankTrust building is next to the Grayton Beach Starbucks Coffee shop and just a short stroll from Another Broken Egg Café. The freestanding building is currently in the process of renovation, so the exact opening date is yet to be announced.



Now doing business as “Somers & Company,” Somers will also maintain the company’s current Destin location on Highway 98 next to City Market at the entrance to Destiny East. Somers’ brokerage has attracted attention due to its record-breaking sales. “In the last few years, the fundamentals of the market have improved dramatically,” Somers says, “and I was fortunate enough to be able to participate in some significant transactions. I have over 25 years of experience in real estate, and I particularly love to help families find their dream home. The 30-A area is a perfect companion site to the company’s existing site in Destin, as both submarkets have superb cross-marketing potential.”



Although John Paul Somers & Company won the “Best of the Emerald Coast” award as a real estate organization in 2012, as chosen by the readers of Emerald Coast magazine, Somers has no aspirations to be the biggest. “We are really a boutique brokerage. It’s all about developing a strong relationship with clients that enables us to service them for years to come.”
