Scenic Sotheby's International Realty is expanding their professional team of top real estate agents by hiring Tom Fitzpatrick, a long time Florida resident with over 10 years of experience.

"We are thankful to have Tom join our team," says Blake Morar, broker/owner of Scenic Sotheby's International Realty. "We are excited that our platform lines up so well with his approach. He is an absolute perfect fit."

Chris Abbot, co-owner of Scenic Sotheby's International Realty, agrees. "We welcome Tom with open arms. We couldn't be happier he said, 'yes' to our offer to join our team. Tom has experience in this market, and has been a part of the growth South Walton has seen over the years. His hands on approach and calm nerves will be sure to continue his success with the tools and guidance Scenic Sotheby's International Realty has to offer."

With his vast knowledge of South Walton County, his reputation for highly personalized service, and an innovator in the luxury market, Fitzpatrick is known for his standard of excellence. Working in sales and marketing for two prominent communities, Park Place in Seagrove, and The Village in Seacrest, he oversaw sales in excess of $30 million. Recognized as "Number One" for sales transaction volume for all of 30A, he understands the area, as well as the needs of his clients.

"My clients rely on my judgment, and my attention to detail. In fact, today I continue to work with many of my former buyers who purchased homes from me, as I find trustworthy renters for their luxury properties. I enjoy getting to know these vacation guests, while having the properties look great."

While real estate may be his professional passion, chances are you will find him on the golf course when he has a spare moment. As a former corporate golf instructor, Fitzpatrick has conducted workshops with noted Inner Game author Tim Gallwey and also worked for David Leadbetter. Through the years, Fitzpatrick has played and trained golf alongside numerous hall of fame golfers, notable entertainers, and corporate executives. He writes a regular golf column for Thirty-A Review.
