John is fully committed to achieving the highest possible price for his sellers. Through his in-depth analysis and knowledge of the Emerald Coast market, John offers concise, timely and accurate market information, while defining emerging trends and worthwhile investments. John is also privy to many “off the market” opportunities that aren’t publicly known!

In addition to an impressive sales record and sales career, John is professionally coached and just like with a great sports coach John is held accountable to his sales goals and always pushed to achieve top results – and he delivers!

John’s listing program is unique and unrivaled. Other agents might be afraid to tell you the truth and tell you what they think you want to hear. That can equal properties that languish on the market or even become stigmatized because they are not properly priced and marketed. When you list with John and the At The Beach Team, be assured your pricing and marketing will be right on target to sell in today’s market!

Buying a property on the Emerald Coast is buying a lifestyle, which is why Kris thinks of herself as a “dream maker” rather than a “home seller”. She believes that there is something here for absolutely everyone, no matter what your needs or desires. Kris spends the time to really listen to her clients and prides herself on the effort and caring she gives to each and every person she works with. As a Buyer Specialist, she is an expert in this marketplace and has put in the time to know this area inside and out and where to buy and why. She not only knows the properties that are “officially” on the market, but many others that are not.

Kris believes that the best barometer for measuring her real estate success comes not just from her impressive sales performance, but from words that come directly from her client’s mouths. For Kris, it’s common to hear such compliments as “you’ve ruined us for any other realtor,” “you’re so easy to work with and to trust,” and “you’ve made the process smoother and more fun that I could have ever imagined!”

An extensive current market analysis is always provided so that you know you are going into this process with access to all of the information needed to make an educated and knowledgeable decision, whether you are looking to buy or sell. Kris can also assist a seller in fully optimizing marketing appeal, whether that is through suggestions for furniture placement, paint colors, staging or just knowing which highlights to point out that enhance a property’s appeal.

Originally from North Dakota, her Midwestern charm is projected through her mannerisms and sincerity. Kris has been selling real estate with a commitment to excellence since 1999 and is constantly raising the bar and setting new standards of excellence. When not “hard at work”, Kris is with her husband and two adorable children, or enjoying her hobby of photography!

Her long list of sales and repeat clients are your guarantee of success. When you work with Kris and her team, you are getting the best marketing systems, marketing research, network of prospective buyers, and first view of new properties. Plus, the best administrative support and follow-up to your transaction!

When buyers and sellers trust John Skinner with their real estate needs, they are rewarded with his dedication, attentiveness, and efficiency in getting the job done right. John navigates every client through the real estate process with confidence and ease. Key to his effectiveness besides his market knowledge and negotiating savvy is his ability to forge strong relationships with clients that last over time. “I enjoy getting to know my clients and working with them through the transaction process. It is especially rewarding to find that perfect property match; one that suits their financial constraints and enables them to appreciate this area of the country.”

Eager to excel at what he does, John continually challenges himself and finds solutions for any given situation, simple or complex. Prior to entering the world of real estate, John spent 6 years in Atlanta and Houston selling technology solutions to some of the largest corporations in the world. This experience, in conjunction with his unique drive, passion, and dedication to the practice of real estate has helped him develop impressive negotiation and interpersonal skills. “I have found my Real Estate clients to be of a similar mind-set to business owners and executives. Investing in real estate involves both emotional and financial considerations.”

John understands that hard-work and creative adaptability produce results in real estate as and that is what he offers his clients and customers—results. John prides himself on his communication skills and strives to bring his clients and customers only the highest level of service. His youthful energy and constant availability make him a pleasure to work with and are at the root of his strong and rapidly expanding referral network. “As your Realtor, I make myself available seven days a week, 52 weeks a year. Together, we will find the right buyer or the property of your dreams. I constantly track the market in order to offer the best service possible to property owners and potential buyers. I closely follow what has sold and what is available on the market. Tracking both trends from analytical and personal perspectives helps me bring the every changing market into focus. For sellers, I strive to recommend the most advantageous property selection and negotiation strategy based upon relative value, uniqueness and historical data. I strive to help buyers find what is comfortable to them and satisfies their perception of value.”

Although John enjoys his business and the people he meets, he also finds it important to have interests outside of real estate. “I can honestly say that there is no more beautiful landscape or quality people than you will find on the Emerald Coast.” In his free time, he partakes of all the wonderful opportunities the Emerald Coast has to offer. He particularly enjoys fishing and training for marathons. One of his greatest pleasures is cooking fresh seafood with friends and sitting down to a fine dinner together.

I was born and raised on the island of St. Croix in the US Virgin Islands. I’m very fortunate to have been able to travel to almost all the islands throughout the Caribbean. I graduated from Jacksonville University with a bachelor of science degree in accounting and I have enjoyed success in a variety of business pursuits. As a second generation real estate agent I still have my Brokers license in the Virgin Island and now I am excited to be a part of Keller Williams Realty’s At The Beach Team here in Destin. So many great beach activity options here and I enjoy them all with my wonderful wife and daughter. Helping people own a piece of paradise is a great way to make a living.
