Val is a U.S. Veteran who proudly served in the Marine Corps for four years. She relocated to the Beaches of South Walton and 30A over 25 years ago from San Diego, California and currently owns homes in both South Walton and in Pensacola Florida; Val spends the vast majority of her time here in Santa Rosa Beach where she focuses on her full time real estate business . She obtained her Florida real estate license and REALTOR® designation in 2016. A professional background as an architecture model builder and an environmental engineering draftsman combined with first hand experiences in restoring her own 1925 cottage style home, gives Val a unique skill set and perspective when working with her clients. She is a strong problem solver and loves the opportunity to guide and assist buyers and sellers in reaching their individual real estate goals. To add to Val’s diverse talents and interests, she restored and owns a 1966 Ford Mustang Coupe that she affectionately refers to as "a real beast"! Val is also an avid bicyclist and living at the beach here in Northwest Florida with its ideal year-round climate allows her to enjoy one of her favorite out-door activities year-round.
