Want to buy a home in Destin? Want to take a relaxing vacation on the best white-sand beaches? Everywhere you look, you find signs and advertisements for real estate companies or vacation rental management and you see trucks with remodeling services.

As a property buyer, renter or owner, how do you know what company to choose to help you? After talking with the partners of Destin Palms Real Estate LLC and Destin Palms Vacations, Inc. the answer will become quite clear — Destin Palms is different.

Senior Partner Paul Couch's enthusiasm is apparent.

“No matter what you’re looking for as a property owner, an investor or a guest, we have an expert on our team who can provide you with the service you need. In over 30 years of business, I never worked with a team as knowledgeable or experienced as this one," he said. "As owners of investment properties ourselves, we know firsthand how important it is to have a team you can trust.”

Together, the team of Destin Palms combines 71 years in Real Estate sales and property management experience, and 75 years in construction and property maintenance.

“We want to provide our clients with service that they’ve never seen before. We want them to feel like family,” said partner Tina Couch.

Destin Palms, with a motto of “Let our family take care of yours,” was created by two families after recognizing that there was a gaping hole in the market. Many companies do some combination of rentals and Real Estate, but no one combines them with property preservation and maintenance the way Destin Palms does.

“We provide a completely comprehensive program under one roof. Paul’s team handles Real Estate and my team handles the rental management," said Partner Jessica Forrester.

Through his creative vision and hands-on experience, Glenn’s team is able to preserve, update and sustain their clients’ properties.

“It’s not just about renting or buying a house or a condo. As an owner, you make an investment," adds Glenn. “My job is to maintain and increase the value of your property.”

Destin Palms offers a similar experience for their associates, who enjoy a positive work environment unlike any other. Profit sharing and stock options are only part of the benefits, and as Destin Palms grows, they plan on adding to the team.

 “We are looking for successful seasoned agents that want something different than the typical real estate brokerage; agents that mirror our values and ethics. In return, we are covering many standard reoccurring agent costs, providing a commission/draw structure based on production, and offering competitive compensation and an opportunity to own a piece of the company,” says Paul.

“Each of us at Destin Palms are determined to give our very best,” Jessica added. “We all have a vested interest. How can we not love our jobs? We get to help others enjoy this beautiful place we are blessed to call home.”

Located on the ground floor of Majestic Sun, Destin Palms occupies 5,000 square feet of Gulf front office space. Paul says they specifically chose this location so they can be easily accessible to their clients and guests.

The Destin Palms team personally invites you to visit their office for their grand opening event on Wednesday, Feb. 12, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. To learn more about Destin Palms, call 850-424-1088.
