850 Properties prepares for growth

Special to The Sun

850 Properties is poised for growth with the addition of Patrick McCarthy as co-owner and Director of Operations. Since Broker and lead agent Allen Adams formed 850 Properties in 2013, this boutique firm established itself as a leader in the 30A luxury real estate market. McCarthy’s unique background in law, real estate development, and business will provide the skills and vision needed to grow the company’s geographic footprint and attract the area’s best and brightest agents.

Patrick’s real estate ventures started in 2002 when he co-developed Adagio in Blue Mountain Beach. He went on to develop Villa Coyaba in Destin and Andante in Seacrest with development partner, and now owner of 360 Blue Properties, Jason Sprenkle. During the market downturn, Patrick practiced law representing buyers, sellers, developers, and property owners in a wide variety of real estate related matters and litigation. 

As longtime friends, Adams and McCarthy discussed forming a business partnership for many years, but the timing was never right. However, the recent sale of the Walton County based software startup Glad to Have You, Inc., which McCarthy co-founded, aligned with the resurgence of the local real estate market and provided the perfect opportunity. 

“Patrick’s deep background in real estate law and development is a great resource for me and the other agents of 850 Properties,” said broker Allen Adams. “He can assist clients and agents with authority because he’s had hands on experience with just about every real estate issue one might expect to see.  In addition to his open door policy to assist our agents, he hosts monthly seminars on real estate related topics to ensure our agents are using best practices and providing the highest level of service to our clients.” 

Adams added, “Patrick’s background will also allow 850 Properties to expand our services to commercial and developer clients.”

“Each client is different, each transaction is different, and each presents unique obstacles and opportunities.  We strive to provide the highest level of client representation to help each one make the right choices, avoid problems, and achieve their desired results” said McCarthy. “850 Properties wants agents that share this commitment.”

Unparalleled customer service is the cornerstone of 850 Properties.
