Mike Johnson and Jacqui Luberto, with Century 21 Blue Marlin, have been awarded the nationally recognized Military Relocation Professional Certification. The National Association of Realtors awards the MRP certification to Realtors who help military personnel, veterans and their families find housing that lets them make the best use of their benefits and serves the unique needs of military life.

Raised in the small town of El Campo, Texas, and a graduate of Texas A&M, Johnson and his wife always wanted to live on the Emerald Coast. After 18 years of vacationing with their family, they made the move to Destin in July 2015 and opened their business venture, Destination Segway Tours Inc. Previously, Johnson spent 20 years in information technology and 10 years owning his own business. Although new to the real estate industry, Johnson loves the opportunity to help people find their dream home, meeting new people and introducing them to the area.

Born and raised in Pensacola, Luberto left the Emerald Coast for a brief period as she received her schooling from University of Alabama at Birmingham and Trident University. She garnered more than 20 years of experience cultivating relationships while a civilian employee of the Air Force and a marketing manager at ResortQuest by Wyndham Vacation Rentals Northwest Florida. With her local knowledge of the Emerald Coast, community involvement and background in sales and marketing, Luberto is qualified to take on her new role as a Century 21 Blue Marlin agent.

Realtors, like Johnson and Luberto, who earn this certification, know how to work with active duty military buyers and sellers, as well as veterans.

As a Military Relocation Professional, the agent is educated in working with U.S. service members and their families and veterans to find the housing solutions that best suit their needs and to take full advantage of available benefits and support.

Thanks to extensive experience with military real estate, the Century 21 Blue Marlin team is familiar with the VA home loan application and works diligently to get military homebuyers the lowest interest rates, lowest down payments and other incentives designed that help military families get settled quickly.
