Happy Customers

Our real estate investments in the gulf coast area have been profitable and pleasurable experiences due to the professionalism and expertise of our agent, Shannyn Stevenson. Her knowledge and command of the gulf coast market is unparalleled. As we move forward in our investment strategy we will continue to rely on Shannyn’s insight and skill for future real estate dealings. - Monkey Beach Investments Buyer/Seller 

"Shannyn Stevenson is a local Real Estate Professional with whom I have had the pleasure of working over the past 4-5 years on numerous short sales for our mutual clients. She is always knowledgeable of her clients’ needs and wishes and works with their best interests at heart. I have seen her go to great lengths to assist with short sale approvals and to obtain successful closings for those who place their trust in her. I know that when I need something done, Shannyn is the person I want on my team." - Julie Paton, Short Sale Facilitator  

 I have had the opportunity and pleasure to work with Shannyn Stevenson and I would recommend her to anyone that is interested in results-oriented transactions. As a new buyer to the arena of investment property, Shannyn provided valuable key deciding factors on various properties. Once the property was chosen, Shannyn worked diligently through the short sale transaction through the morning of closing. She was cool under pressure – when it seemed like the deal would fall apart – she was confident in her resources to make to make it happen. Even after closing, Shannyn made herself available to answer questions pertaining to the investment. Her ability to envision the end result for her clients, provides her with the realistic process that each transaction progress through. Her knowledge in the areas of real estate buying, selling, specialty transactions, and real estate investing are off the charts! - Karen Pearson, Condo Owner  

"We were petrified at the thought of going through the process of selling our Miramar Beach home. Our family had enjoyed our beach house for years but we knew that it was time to move on. Newman-Dailey Realtor Eva Pickens made it all so easy! She handled everything from start to closing in a friendly and professional manner.  She advised us in so many ways you can't imagine! She helped with everything from furniture arranging to smoothly guiding us through the paperwork. In less than 60 days we were done and with check in-hand off to new adventures!" - Art & Anita Eason    

"I have been a condo owner in Miramar Beach since 1998. Last year my wife and I decided to start a search for a home along the Emerald Coast with Newman-Dailey Real Estate Broker, Eva Pickens. Over the years, we have met other Brokers, but have known Eva personally and thought her knowledge and professionalism would help us in that search for the right property. We also chose Eva because she is a wonderful person and so easy to relate to. Our search took many months until we found what we were looking for, and Eva helped guide us along the way. Our buying and closing experience was really a challenge due to the prior owners and their closing requirements. Eva’s knowledge and attention to detail made our purchase possible. If it wasn’t for her, I do not think we would have found the right property and accomplished our goals of owning a home in Miramar Beach. If you’re looking for someone to assist you in purchasing a property I can think of no one better than Eva Pickens."  

"We had a wonderful experience with Sherry as our realtor on the purchase of a condo in Fort Walton Beach. Sherry showed us multiple units representing a variety of condo styles, developments and price ranges within our budget. Sherry paid close attention to features that appealed to me, while also focusing on things that most interested my wife. Once we settled on the unit that most interested us, Sherry provided recommendations on appraisers, home inspectors and local banking contacts. This was extremely helpful since we do not live in the area, and we did not have connections. The buying process went smoothly from start to closing. Since finalizing our purchase over one year ago, Sherry has stayed in touch to make sure we've been pleased with our condo and to see if we'd be interested in investing in another property. That time will come, and we'll definitely rely on Sherry to handle that purchase as well!" - L&S Hudson, Fort Walton Beach Condo Owner

"Shannyn’s assistance in my search and purchase of a condominium on the gulf coast was priceless. Her knowledge of the area, down to individual streets and buildings, provided insight that I wouldn’t have otherwise had. She listened to what I was looking for and quickly came back with some options and spent time showing me several locations with varying features and amenities. This ultimately led to me purchasing a unit in a resort that I would have never ventured to on my own. She remained engaged throughout the closing process and was very helpful along the way. I couldn’t be happier with my decision to reach out to Shannyn early in the process and I would recommend her without hesitation." - Hidden Dunes Gulf Front Owner    

"Eva was our real estate agent when we began looking for a condo in the Destin area.  In a short period of time she showed us exactly what we were looking for and we made an offer.  Throughout the process of purchasing our condo, she was on top of every issue that came up and helped see us through the closing.  We intend to purchase another property within the next 12-18 months and will again look forward to working with Eva.  Thanks so much Eva for making the process as painless as possible!!" - Sharon & Dickson Kidd
