Century 21 Blue Marlin announced that six new agents have joined its firm.

“We are thrilled to have Paula Beauchemin, Donna Clark, Steve Clark, Shannon Helmuth, Victoria Hughes and Paul Malsky join our team,” said Jerry Sullivan, bro-ker/owner of Century 21 Blue Marlin. “It’s an exciting time to be with Cen-tury 21 Blue Marlin as we increase our market presence in Northwest Florida.”

After moving to Destin in 1990, Beauchemin fell in love with the real estate industry, buying, selling, and building custom homes in Destin. She has been a licensed Realtor for over 10 years and a licensed mortgage banker for three years.

Donna Clark was drawn to the Gulf Coast in 1994 by the warm weather, beau-tiful beaches and friendly people. With a bachelors of science in organiza-tional leadership, two beautiful daugh-ters, a supportive husband and 20 years experience of owning her own business, Donna feels she is ready and able to assist community members in making these important life decisions.

A native of the Emerald Coast, Steve Clark grew up in Fort Walton Beach and graduated from University of West Florida with a dou-ble major in biology and math. Steve had been a successful small business owner for the past 10 years and a National Association of Real-tors member.

Helmuth moved to Destin from North Little Rock, Arkan-sas, with her family as a child. Shortly after she moved to Destin she graduated from Fort Walton Beach High School. Helmuth fell in love with the area and decided that the Em-erald Coast would be her new home.

Originally from the suburbs of the Chicago area, Hughes moved to Florida in 1983 where she has worked in the real estate industry for 29 years. She served as president of Can-opy Crossing Prop-erty Owners Associa-tion from 2012 to 2015, and currently serves as secre-tary/treasurer at Gulf Cemetery in Santa Rosa Beach. Hughes has received the Five Diamond Top Producer Award as well as the Multi-Million Dollar Sales Club award.

Hughes comes to Century 21 Blue Mar-lin as a team leader of Team Summer Place at the 30A office.

Malsky, a re-spected retinal sur-geon, practiced medicine in Albany, Georgia, for 30 years while invest-ing in Florida real estate over a 20-year span with a keen focus on North-west Florida. He and his wife, Jan, fell in love with the area the first time they visited, so much so that they maintained a home here in Destin, as well as their home in Albany.

Today, Malsky and his wife, Jan, have made the Emerald Coast their perma-nent residence. He became a licensed Realtor in the state of Florida. Though Malsky is new to the real estate profes-sion, he has sold condos, homes and lots in Destin and along Scenic Highway 30A. Malsky special-izes in commercial, investment and resi-dential real estate, as well as first time buyers.
