New partnership unites top area and regional real estate and development professionals

Special to The Log

The Premier Property Group, JGM Development Holdings, Tommy Brigham with ARC Realty of Birmingham, Ala., and Bob Parks of Parks Realty in Nashville Tenn., have partnered to create The Premier Group to oversee development, real estate sales and vacation property management services focused on the beaches of the Northwest Florida Gulf Coast. The Premier Group will encompass The Premier Property Group (real estate property sales), The Premier Development Group (new development opportunities) and Invited Home (vacation rental property management). In addition, partnerships with both ARC Realty of Birmingham and Parks Realty of Nashville will connect customers across the Southeast with preferred access to Premier ownership opportunities and related services.

While each company retains its unique identity and portfolio of services, The Premier Group partnership will foster a collaborative relationship between top area and regional real estate and development professionals. Garrett McNeil as manager of JGM, will serve as managing partner of The Premier Group working directly with The Premier Property Group founding partners Keith Flippo and Bob Parks, founder and chairman of Parks Realty and Tommy Brigham, chairman of ARC Realty.

“We are extremely excited about creating this new partnership,” said McNeil. “The Premier Property Group and The Premier Development Group will strive to leverage our collective resources to provide our sales professionals the highest level of support for their business and access to the newest developments along the coast. This will allow them to focus on ensuring that their customers not only have a great experience, but also preferred access to new opportunities.”

The Premier Property Group is a boutique real estate agency dedicated to providing exceptional customer service. Specializing in luxury property sales, the agency ranked #1 in luxury homes sold (over $2 million each) for the Destin and 30A markets in 2014 according to the Emerald Coast Association of Realtors. The Premier Development Group is currently developing five significant area projects including The Brownstones at Kelly Plantation, 125 Crystal Beach, Duneside at Blue Mountain Beach and the highly anticipated upscale gulf front condominium community in Seagrove Beach, Thirty-One.

“We are now uniquely positioned to bring new inventory of properties to our sophisticated clientele from across the Southeast,” said Barbara Schott, managing broker for The Premier Property Group 30A.

“Birmingham and Nashville are historically among the top 5 feeder markets and our relationships with both ARC Realty and PARKS Realty allow us added promotional opportunities for inventory and direct connections to new buyers,” said Grady Elder, broker for the company’s Grand Boulevard and Destin offices.
