Seasoned real estate brokers Ed and Terri Smith are celebrating 30 years of helping Floridians achieve their dreams of real estate ownership. The Smiths are the founders of RE/MAX on the Emerald Coast and current owners of RE/MAX Coastal Properties in Destin.

“I never take for granted the opportunity to wake up every morning and work in an industry I love in a community that is home,” said Ed. “Over the last 30 years, Terri and I have seen many changes in the housing market along the Emerald Coast. Events like Hurricane Ivan and the great recession significantly impacted our communities. It’s an honor to have remained a constant for our clients through the good and the bad times, helping generations of home and condo buyers.”

The Smiths are both licensed real estate brokers, as well as accredited buyer representatives, certified residential specialists, certified distressed property experts and certified luxury specialists. Ed also earned his certified real estate brokerage manager certification in 1995 and served as the 2014 president of Emerald Coast Association of Realtors.

“Our mission for the future is the same as it has always been,” said Terri. “We focus on building relationships, doing our best to satisfy our client’s needs and making sure the client knows they are important to us.”

Ed and Terri are past recipients of RE/MAX of Florida’s Outstanding Achievement Award and Florida Broker/Owners of the Year. They are consistently ranked among the top 1.5 percent of all RE/MAX associates in Florida.
