Blue Marlin Realty Group’s top four on the leader board (PHOTOS)

Special to The Log

In just two short years, the Blue Marlin Realty Group team has more than tripled, making this real estate group one of the fastest growing teams on Florida’s Emerald Coast! Meet some of the local faces from the Blue Marlin Realty Group team who are movin’ and shakin’ the real estate industry in our area.

Erin Martin

Originally from Birmingham, Alabama, Erin Martin has lived in Destin for 12 years. The mother of three has been married for 11 years and enjoys all this area has to offer from boating, the beach and football season. Erin admits she owes her success in real estate to having fun doing what she loves.

“What’s not to love? The Emerald Coast is a perfect destination whether to live or vacation,” she admits.

Everyday Erin looks forward to going to work with the Blue Marlin Realty Group agents and showing property.

John Cunningham

John Cunningham has lived in the Destin area for more than 22 years. After graduating from the University of Alabama in 2005, John was immediately recruited to work with a local builder as a project manager. John keeps busy as the President of Destination Builders Inc., an active real estate agent and a Florida home inspector. When he’s not working John spends his time with his son, Jace. The 7-year-old is heavily involved in everything from basketball to most recently BMX racing. Passionate is understatement when you hear how John feels about his job as a Realtor. He explains, “I get to give people a piece of paradise. Our local area has homes at all price points near some of the world’s most beautiful beaches and I’m lucky enough to sell that, one property at a time”.

Jordan Dennis

Originally from California, Jordan Dennis moved to Florida’s Emerald Coast when the Marine Corps gave him orders to Eglin Air Force Base as an F35B maintainer at VMFAT-501. Jordan’s military background has been key in making Jordan so successful in the Real Estate business.

“I have an instant connection with my buyers. Nearly all of my deals this year have been with active duty military. Being that I am also active duty military, they see that not only have I walked many miles in their boots, I am still wearing those boots with them,” he said.

Jordan specializes in educating military members on how they can use their government benefits and VA entitlements to buy, and invest in local real estate. You can usually find Jordan spending time with his daughters Abigayle and Norah, closing a real estate deal, or even playing the guitar with local artists.

Kerry O’Neal

When asked about her success with Blue Marlin Realty Group Kerry O’Neal explains, “Stay with it. Stay positive. Remember the great moments.” Kerry has been lucky enough to live in some of the most beautiful places in the United States including Kentucky, Colorado and now Destin. When she’s not working in real estate, Kerry enjoys golfing, fishing, paddle boarding and sunset dinners with her husband, Doug.  Recent newlyweds, Doug and Kerry enjoy visits from their son and three daughters. Having lived in some pretty cold places Kerry admits it’s nice to get up and go to work without having to throw on a parka! Working with Blue Marlin Realty Group gives Kerry the flexibility necessary to start her own team of agents to help with her growing business.
