Shannyn Stevenson
Newman Dailey Resort Properties
About Shannyn

I moved to the area in 1980 and I watched our small little fishing village grow into an amazing popular vacation destination. Having witnessed this area becoming a world-class vacation spot, it only made sense that I pursue a career in Real Estate. I dipped my toe into the Real Estate market in 1999; I initially started as an “accredited buyer’s agent” and held that position for nearly 4 years before deciding to add the listing agent to my Real Estate agent criteria. I have had great success with putting deals together through the ever-changing market conditions and have continued to be one of the top producers in my office. Selling Real Estate is not a hobby for me but career choice that I love. I specialize in all types of beach communities along the Gulf Coast and Sell properties from Destin to Rosemary Beach. I’ve had great success with putting buyers and sellers together on short term rental investment beach properties, and I understand what it takes to have a successful investment which is what I want for all of my clients. On a Personal Note: I am happily Married to my Husband Scott Stevenson, we have 3 wonderful Kids: Hannah, Carter, and Hilary. In addition to selling Real Estate, I’m also the Vic President of my Condo Association, Coach Soccer, Paddle Board, and my favorite thing to do is spend a nice relaxing beach day with my Family. I am here to do more than just help you buy or sell real estate. I am looking to establish a lifelong relationship. My mission is to earn the privilege of receiving all of your future business, as well as your personal recommendation of my services to your family, friends, and associates. I produce excellent results by utilizing sound planning, professional ethics, good communication skills, the latest technology and an expertise. I believe that a transaction is not complete until my customers are happy with me and satisfied with their results. I want you to be my customer for life. As always, I promise to deliver a progressive and comprehensive approach to real estate representation. I can and will exceed your real estate expectations.
