Ashley is our Real Estate Broker. She has been with the company since we opened and has extensive experience in rental management and sales.

Whether it is a short- term or a long- term rental, you will be pleased with the personal service that Ashley provides. Her attention to detail, warm voice on the phone, and follow up will “exceed your expectations.” Our rental program can be specially tailored to your special needs. If you only want to rent during the summer and use your property the rest of the time, that is fine with us. If you want to do some of the rentals yourself, Ashley can coordinate a program for you. We opened our rental program to assist our personal clients with whom we have a relationship. We know their needs better than anyone and they know that Greg and Ashley have their best interest at heart. Now we are expanding to take a few selected properties to offer the same exceptional service and programs. Contact Ashley or Greg to let us know what you need.

I am Missy Hooker with Southern Beach Real Estate and Rentals, LLC. I am happily married to my husband Steve and we have 4 spectacular children and 2 grandchildren. After a 17 year career in residential building and real estate sales in Mississippi, we decided to move to Destin. I can remember coming to Destin as a young girl 3 to 4 times a year with my family. The beautiful water and beaches literally took my breath away every time, as it still does today.
I am so excited to have been in real estate sales and residential building for the last 29 years and to know that it is still my passion. I am driven by the excitement that it brings to myself and my customers on every real estate transaction. I am also a registered nurse.  I enjoy helping others in making their dreams come to pass and I look forward to the opportunity in working with you in all of your real estate needs.
