Scenic Sotheby's International Realty holds dirt turning

Special to The Sun

Scenic Sotheby's International Realty held a dirt turning ceremony and hosted a walkthrough of the luxury real estate firm's new 30Avenue location in Inlet Beach Nov. 18. Scheduled to open in January, the office will enhance the firm's service to the east end of 30A in an unprecedented way.

Broker Owners Blake Morar and Chris Abbott presented the construction timeline, and announced long time sales associate Casey Joiner as a new member of the firm's management team.

“We're proud to see Casey transition to a managerial role within our company,” said Morar. “Casey has been with us in a sales capacity since 2009 and has earned the deep respect of his peers, who he will now guide and support at the new location.”

“By adding this location we're more than doubling our footprint, and will finally have room to welcome additional agents,” said Abbott. “It is important to us that, as we grow, we maintain our collaborative culture, and Casey will play a vital role in making sure we do so.”

Over the course of his career, Joiner has held positions as project manager and director of sales at some of the world's top real estate and development companies including Intrawest, The KOR Group, and Turnberry, in beautiful resort locations such as Palm Springs, California and Playa Del Carmen, Mexico.

“We are in the recruiting process now, and looking to grow by adding 15 agents by the spring,” said Morar. “Our new 30Avenue office will carry the momentum of our global brand to the east end of 30A, and create a true bookend to our service area.”

The 4,100 square foot 30Avenue office will feature a reception area with interactive Touch Gallery, guest lounge with adjoining terrace, two state-of-the-art conference rooms, private phone rooms, as well as dedicated desk space for 32 agents, 12 on-the-go work stations, plus additional work stations for support staff.
