In light of the partnership, we have a monthly realtor spotlight. This month, we are excited to introduce you all to Michaela Vermeulen! Michaela was born and raised in Benoni, South Africa till her parents decided to move the family in 2000 to San Antonio,TX. Growing up, Michaela knew at a young age she loved houses and the realtor process. She explains, “when I was a little girl I would make my parents stop by any open house within the area we lived so that I could see how other houses looked. I love to see the layout of other houses and would try to convince my parents that they needed that house!” When Michaela and her husband finally moved to the area a year ago, she decided to take her passion for the housing industry and make it a career!

As a military spouse, Michaela is constantly having to pick up and start a new career wherever she goes. When they moved to Destin, she knew she really wanted to put her roots in and help others in the biggest purchases of their lives! Today, she has officially been a realtor for four months and is thriving. We also asked Michaela what her favorite part of the job was and she said, “ I love giving my clients my time and resources to make the home buying process a smooth and fun time. And of course who doesn’t love getting to see all the amazing homes in our Emerald Coast?” Additionally, when we asked Michaela why home buyers should purchase in Destin, she had this to say, “One, there are many things to experience here in Destin. Of course our amazing and one of a kind beach, parasailing, deep sea fishing, Crab Island and much more. Two, there are many houses and condos in the area that have amazing views and many amenities to offer within each. You have prime real estate that will give you a high return. Three, Rentals. The long-term and short-term rental market is in major demand in the area. You not only have a peak season that triples the population in Destin, also have military bases that bring in many families as well. Lastly, the atmosphere here in Destin is one of a kind. Everyone is so friendly and ready to have some fun. There is not one weekend that there is not something to do in our Destin area no matter the time of year.”
