Hello, my name is John Van Zelst. Prior to moving to Santa Rosa Beach in 2013, my family and I vacationed here every year. We loved this area so much that we decided to purchase a condo on Holiday Isle in 2003. This was a new experience for us, as it was our second home and our first investment property. This is what sparked my interest in the Real Estate business.
In 2013, after scouring the area from Okaloosa to South Walton we purchased a home in Santa Rosa Beach. My family loves this area for the same reason people flock here in the summer. Beautiful beaches, the small-town atmosphere, and friendly people. But it is more than that for me. I remember after one of the storms everyone just started helping those in need, no questions asked. Whether it was helping to clean-up debris, collecting donations or making and distributing food, all available hands were helping. This is what being part of the community means here on the Panhandle.
I have been working with a seasoned professional Realtor for over 8 years and understand the questions and concern one has when buying or selling property. I would love to be your go to person that guides you through the process, stress free, no matter what your real estate need may be.
