Blue Marlin Realty Group announces the significant expansion to the team with the addition of several new professionals -- Candyce Gray, Kate Mast, Lindsay Fullerton, and Ashley Blasbichler.

Joining the Blue Marlin team as a Realtor, Mast, was originally from Colorado, but later moved to the Emerald Coast more than 10 years ago to be closer to family. She graduated from University of West Florida with a Bachelor’s degree in Political Science, and has worked in the service industry for more than 11 years as well as owned and managed her own business, Crave Cupcakes.

"I am excited to work with families new to the area,” said Mast. “I remember the process of relocating to Destin, and purchasing my own home. I look forward to helping those families find their perfect home.”

Gray, the team’s new office administrator, was raised in Birmingham, Ala., and grew up spending family vacations in Destin. Her dream of living on the Emerald Coast came true in November 2012 when she relocated to the area. In her new position, Gray will be responsible for providing personalized customer service along with all other administration duties while continuing to pursue her real estate license.

"I look forward to receiving my license,” says Gray. “I know I have a great opportunity for growth with the Blue Marlin team.”

New real estate sales manager, Fullerton was born and raised in Destin. A graduate of Fort Walton Beach High School, Fullerton received her real estate license from Ed Kofflers School of Real Estate. Since beginning her career in 2001, Fullerton has developed extensive experience in Emerald Coast real estate in addition to traveling to sell in Europe as well. 

"The area has been such a big part of my life,” said Fullerton. “My new position gives me the opportunity to combine two things I love: The Emerald Coast and real estate.”

Joining the team as a new Realtor, Blasbichler was also born and raised in Destin. A graduate of Fort Walton Beach High School and Northwest Florida State College, Blasbichler grew up working with her family in a local vacation rental business, Sea Oates Motel & Management. Receiving her real estate license more than 10 years ago, Blasbichler worked in real estate and vacation rentals at Holiday Isle Properties, Inc.

“I believe Northwest Florida, specifically the Destin area, offers unique opportunities for homeowners whether it be for a primary residence, vacation home, condo, as well as time-shares and rental properties,” said Blasbichler. “I am honored to be joining the Blue Marlin Realty Group and look forward to providing exceptional service to my clients to fulfill their real estate needs.”

Owner and brokers, Jerry Sullivan and John Hughes are excited to see their vision of their team’s continued growth coming to fruition.  

“We continue to strengthen with each new team member,” said Sullivan. “We have genuinely found the best of the best and we are excited to see the impact they make on the area.”

"We are coming into spring and summer with the strongest team we’ve had,” said Hughes. “The future is bright for us, and we look forward to continued growth and expansion.”
