For years, the stretch of coast from Destin to Panama city beach has been affectionately nicknamed, "The South's Best Kept Secret." As Beau Blankenship and his team at Blankenship Group wrap up another record-setting year, with $336M in sold and pending sales volume, it would seem that the secret is finally out.

Although Northwest Florida has been growing in popularity over the last few years, the life-altering events of 2020 have made it more appealing than ever.

"It was as though all of a sudden, hundreds of people woke up and realized that if they were going to be working from home, why not do it from the beach?"

Blankenship recalls, "We've had people from all over the country, New York, Nashville, Atlanta, flocking to Florida looking for a beautiful home to ride out the storm."

Indeed, this begs the question, with no end to work from home ordinances in sight, why not live in a tropical paradise?

5 years ago, Beau Blankenship and his wife were faced with a similar question. Originally from Oklahoma and newly married, the pair decided to move to their favorite vacation spot, and have never looked back since. After graduating college, Blankenship had a short stint with the Jacksonville Jaguars. When his football career came to an end, he knew he had to channel all of his energy and dedication into something he could be equally passionate about. As it turns out, he'd always had a fascination with real estate. Fortunately, he quickly discovered an affinity for the industry and saw immense success in his first few years working with a boutique brokerage. However, he soon realized the need for a more global reach and began to look outward. In 2017, he acquired the local Engel and Völkers franchise, which equipped him with a worldwide network and infinite opportunities. Blankenship, under the Engel and Völkers of Florida brokerage, specializes in high-end, luxury residential property. In the last 3 years, he's added 5 exceptional agents to his team and they've quickly established themselves as the leaders in their market. They were recently named by the Wall Street Journal as #70 in the country, and #11 in Florida for volume sold in 2019.

Their global reach and aggressive approach to production and marketing have contributed to their ability to sell nearly any property. As a relatively young team, they think outside the box and utilize cutting-edge marketing techniques to get their homes noticed. From personalized websites for each home to luxury professional photography and videography, each home is positioned to garner as much attention as possible. This attention to detail does not go unnoticed by their hundreds of satisfied clients and their savvy potential buyers.

As Blankenship reflects on his accomplishments and looks ahead to the next few years he's extremely thankful for the opportunities he's had.

" We are very thankful to be in the position we're in. We feel extremely blessed to have the opportunities we've had." says Blankenship.

For Beau Blankenship, this is just the start, "I wake up every day excited to work with my clients and find them the homes of their dreams, whether that be investment or second home."
