If you live anywhere in the Northwest Florida area, especially the Destin and 30A area, and need a competent and professional real estate company, broker, or agent who truly understands the real estate market, is meticulous, and will always have your best interests in mind, do yourself a favor and use Somers and Company.

After some previous not-so-good experiences with other real estate “professionals” in the area, I reached out to Somers and Company and could not be more thrilled that I did! John Paul and Rachael came in and immediately put together a solid, intelligent plan to get my property sold. They truly understand the market dynamics and how to deal in real estate – especially in this area. Selling or buying property is more than simply hanging a sign, listing it for sale, or showing property. They ensured the paperwork and all the listing details were well thought out from the beginning. They were excellent at communicating, keeping me informed and up-to-date every step of the way from initial meeting through closing!

John Paul has the necessary experience to truly excel in the art of negotiating offers. He and his team understood all the variables, market influence, and all the dynamics associated with pricing and offer negotiation and they used their knowledge to get me the best offer on my house. They helped identify potential problems before they arose, which made them easy to prevent or mitigate.

In a hot market saturated by realtors and brokers who claim to be experts, do yourself a favor and use Somers and Company. Save yourself tons of time, hassle, and grief by using a professional team that will always have your best interests in mind. From the initial meeting all the way through signing at closing, I could not me more enthusiastic about my experience with John Paul and Rachel. Next time, I will save myself so much stress and heartache and go with them from beginning – and you should too!!!

John and his team provided a wonderful service to our family in our time of need after our mother suddenly passed away.  John was extremely helpful, courteous, and respectful to our wishes to market and sell our family’s home. He provided excellent recommendations to help us prepare the home for sale. John’s strategy and marketing efforts brought us a contract in one week that closed 30 days later. I couldn’t be more pleased with the outcome. John’s firm is to be commended for giving us the extra effort that we as consumers have come to expect.”
