Cheryl Bateman

The Premier Property Group announced recently two new agents have joined their Grand Boulevard brokerage.

Cheryl Bateman was born and raised in Canada’s Victoria, British Columbia. Through her 20’s, Bateman worked for one of Canada's leading retailers of consumer electronics and music for more than a decade. It was during this time that she obtained many business, marketing and communication credits to move her career forward.

Bateman continued her education through three years of Toastmasters International to improve her public speaking skills. In her early 30's, she embarked on an adventure that spanned more than half a decade and took her to Europe, India, Africa, Asia, Australia and New Zealand.

After the completion of her world travels, Bateman was hired by Intrawest. During her time traveling from high season to high season, she landed on assignment at Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort in Miramar Beach in 2002 and would eventually make the area home in 2009. Bateman is the Home Owners Association Board President of Harbour Point behind the gates in Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort, where she and her husband, Franc, live.

“Having traveled the world, I know how blessed we are to live in this area,” said Bateman. “I love helping others realize what they only dreamt possible while securing their second home, adding to their portfolio, or re-locating to the area.”

Carol Mote, a native of northeast Mississippi, is a graduate of the University of Mississippi. Prior to moving to Destin in 2005, she and her husband lived in Oxford, Mississippi, for 17 years before a short stent in North Carolina from 2000 to 2005.

As a wife of 35 years and a mother of two grown sons, Mote brings her enthusiasm, energy and passion to The Premier Property Group where she specializes in resort communities. Prior to joining The Premier Property Group, Mote worked closely with developments in WaterColor and Watersound along Scenic Highway 30A. She knows the allure of Florida’s Emerald Coast and works diligently to help her client’s real estate dreams come true.

“I have a blast each day being able to see, show and sell the best properties located around the most beautiful beaches in the world,” said Mote. “Watching a client’s eyes light up when we’ve found their ideal beach home or condominium is the ultimate feeling of accomplishment.”

The Premier Property Group offers four office locations strategically situated to offer both convenience and ease to real estate customers in South Walton and Destin. The 30A offices include locations in Seacrest and WaterColor, both in high profile pedestrian communities that encourage foot traffic. The Sandestin office is in the town center of Grand Boulevard while the Destin office is onsite in Kelly Plantation.
