Amanda Abbott – Realtor
I am blessed to say that I was born and raised in the beautiful beach community of Destin, FL. My family has always been involved in real estate and it was not until recently that I realized that my career path would bring me back here. I have always had an adventurous spirit and after graduating from Florida State University I made a move to Chicago, IL to experience life in the city. I lived in Chicago for 5 years and worked in the fashion industry then moved to New York City for the following 4 years to progress in my career. I worked at an apparel showroom and handled sales for contemporary designers along the East Coast and Internationally. Manhattan was my home base but I was able to travel along the East Coast to work with buyers of specialty boutiques and department stores. I managed nearly 200 accounts across 27 states and soon realized that sales were a specialty of my own.
In 2011, during the fashion industry’s slow season, I came back to sunny Florida for a few of the summer months to recharge. I fell in love with the area again and truly appreciated the beauty that surrounded me. My previous work experience taught me how to be aggressive, build relationships, maintain integrity, and work hard. I can now apply my skills to real estate sales. From 2011 to 2012, I was the listing coordinator and marketing director for the Nathan Abbott Team. In 2013, I shifted to a Seller Specialist, which allows me to focus on call volume with our existing sellers as well as generate new business for the team. I am thankful for this opportunity and look forward to providing the necessary tools to effectively sell your property. I am passionate about what I am doing and hope that you can feel my excitement and positive energy about the beautiful Emerald Coast I now call home again.
