Finding the Best Property Management and Real Estate Company in Destin

Trying to find the best real estate and property management company in Destin? Many begin their research online. By visiting a variety of Destin real estate, vacation rental and property management company’s websites, those seeking real estate services along the Emerald Coast can compare facts including a company’s length of  time in the market, record of success, fees, etc. But beyond quantitative data, it is also important to consider a company’s reputation. 

For more than three decades, Newman-Dailey has stood out, earning respect and positive feedback from clients and the community. Today, the name Newman-Dailey is associated with high integrity, ethics, and service to the community

Throughout our 33 years in business, we have helped grow and shape this community. We have done this through a culture of service. By volunteering our time on boards and with local organizations as well as donating to local classrooms, charities, and fundraisers, the team at Newman-Dailey is deeply woven into the fabric of the Destin and South Walton communities. The strong reputation is thanks to extraordinary leadership and our outstanding team.

To this end, we are humbled to be recognized by community organizations with the following honors:

Better Business Bureau Torch Award for Marketplace Ethics

Newman-Dailey Resort Properties was awarded the prestigious “Torch Award for Marketplace Ethics” in 2015 for business with 50+ employees in District II—Okaloosa and Walton County by the Better Business Bureau (BBB) Foundation serving Northwest Florida. The ninth annual Torch Award program recognizes businesses and charities that insist on exceptionally high standards of behavior. We received our first Torch Award for Marketplace Ethics in 2007 in the category for businesses with under 50 employees, and became a BBB Accredited Business by achieving “Standards for Trust” in 2014. Newman-Dailey was founded in 1985 and for more than 30 years has built a culture that exemplifies what your BBB stands for: trust, integrity, performance and ethics. 

Best Places to Work by Florida Trend

Newman-Dailey Resort Properties was named among Florida Trend Magazine’s Best Companies To Work For. Our company ranked number 18 on the list of the best mid-size companies to work for in Florida, which was announced in the August issue of Florida Trend magazine. We are honored to be on the ‘best companies to work for’ list for the third consecutive year. Companies who participated underwent an evaluation of their workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems and demographics as well as a survey to measure employee satisfaction. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final ranking. At Newman-Dailey, the staff survey demonstrated high satisfaction among staff members, many of which have been with Newman-Dailey for a decade or more.
