Local Expertise. Global Connections.

My family first discovered the Gulf Coast in the early 1950's, and has lived here ever since. At that time, my grandfather, William W. Abbott, Sr., was an Air Force Major OSI and initially purchased waterfront property in Fort Walton Beach. He, vowing to return and raise his family there after retiring, kept his promise to himself, and the rest is history! In 1970 my grandfather became a Real Estate broker, beginning his career selling the first condominiums in the area at El Matador on Okaloosa Island. This was one of the first residential condominium properties built in Northwest Florida. Soon the name Abbott became synonymous with Real Estate along the Gulf Coast as my father, William W. Abbott, Jr., and uncle, Stephen J. Abbott, joined the family business and founded Abbott Realty Services in 1977. With personalized customer service and an unsurpassed work ethic, they built a company employing more than 1,000 people, thus becoming the largest employer in Destin since the mid 1980's. I was raised in the family business and enjoyed my childhood on the Gulf Coast. After playing baseball in Tallahassee and graduating from Florida State University with a Business Management degree, I pursued a career in yacht sales, as life on the water has always been a passion of mine. The yacht sale industry helped hone my sales skills, so the transition into Real Estate sales in 2004 was a natural one. I am the third generation of Abbott Realtors in this area, and although times have definitely changed since the inception of the Abbott Real Estate business, the founding principles that guide me are tried and true - customer service, knowledge, hard work and dedication. I found these principles also practiced at Scenic Sotheby's International Realty whose market presence as the top luxury Real Estate brokerage on the Gulf Coast led my business there in 2010. I partnered with Blake Morar in 2013, and am currently co-owner and managing broker of Scenic Sotheby's International Realty with Blake. The future holds many opportunities and I look forward to assisting you with your Real Estate needs.
