I grew up in Columbus, Ohio. At age 16 I started my own business and I graduated from Franklin Heights High School at age 18. At that time, I made a decision to keep expanding my business; I ended up adding a storefront website called BVGames.com which was recently purchased by Disney and runs under the same name (BV Games).
I came to Crestview, Florida on a vacation to visit my cousin Gladys Carter and stayed at her lakefront home. I really enjoyed my time in the area and its surroundings of Niceville, Destin, and Fort Walton. If you like to see historic areas, Milton and DeFuniak Springs have many things to offer with their preserved and restored business districts, where you can walk from one shop to another. I love the small-town feeling, the historic homes, and the picture perfect scenery, plus the convenience of the Destin beaches which offers any store you might want to visit only a short distance away.
I had always wanted to learn about real estate and could not think of a better area as there is so much growth going on in Okaloosa County. My mom had purchased 10 acres outside of the Crestview city limits in 1996. I decided to purchase that from her. I had a home put on the property and moved down as fast as I could. I want to thank her for selling me that property; the property has appreciated like everything else in the area. There is great potential for investment here. That's why so many builders are flocking to this area. I enjoyed my time there, especially being able to see the stars at night -- an impossible feat in Columbus. Being away from busy streets was very new and peaceful.
I have since moved into my new home. My cousin made plans to move back to Ohio to be close to our family in Columbus, so I purchased her home. She told me she loved living here and she is right -- it's a great place to live. I also want to thank her for selling her home to me. At the time, there were...let's say, few options for lakefront homes with acreage, and I do enjoy seeing the water everyday. So if you're looking to relocate let me show you the area. You will love it as much as I do.
