Bielawski achieved top listings for the fourth quarter, top sales and listings for the third quarter, top sales for the second quarter, and top listing agent for the first quarter which contributed to his overall achievement of the highest volume of sales and listings for the year.



"We are honored to award Jerry with this recognition," said Jeanne Dailey, founder & CEO of Newman-Dailey Resort Properties. "He consistently represents Newman-Dailey's core values and our vision to lead the way through excellence. Jerry goes above and beyond for his clients to make their dreams of owning or selling property along the coast a reality."



"I came to Newman-Dailey because of Jeanne but quickly found that I enjoy working with the entire team as well as the benefits of having multiple divisions within one company," said Bielawski. "It is nice to be able to help clients find a place to stay while they are looking for a property to purchase. Once a purchase is made, we refer them to our property management division to place their home or condo on our rental program. The best part is that I have full confidence that my clients will receive the same warm welcome and exceptional service from every Newman-Dailey team member."



Bielawski has established a reputation for knowledge and excellence in the industry. Clients rely on his deep understanding of the Destin real estate market.



Newman-Dailey also honored Colin Kirkwood, who was recognized as "Top Sales Agent for the Fourth Quarter.” He was also the top listing agent for the second quarter.



Kirkwood started his first company, Better Lawns & Garden, Inc. in 1995 and it grew it into one of Central Florida’s most respected and well-known landscape contracting firms. In 2004 he started his second company, BLG Environmental Services Inc., a disaster recovery firm.



Kirkwood has a strong interest in real estate. He bought his first investment property when he was 18 years old, and has continued to buy and sell in both up and down markets building his investment portfolio. With this knowledge he has a great understanding of property value and how to negotiate the best deal for his clients. He has settled in Destin to pursue two of his passions: real estate and fishing. Kirkwood has strong work ethics and market knowledge.
