Melinda Vazquez

License #:
I am a military transplant! I'm originally from the great Northwest- Bellingham, Washington to be exact, just below the Canadian border and a couple hours north of Seattle.
My husband was stationed here in the early 90's and we have come and gone a few times but kept "keeping" houses here. We have a long term commitment to this community and love it here- so we decided to retire here. While not previously a real estate professional; I am and have been active as a real estate investor in this area for more than 23 years, which gives me an advantage in the local market.
As a military spouse for more than 28 years I have had a lot of adventures along my career path: hospitality, financial services, sales, accounting and finance, collections, and the last 11 years in the construction industry here locally. All of these experiences have given me the opportunity to develop skills which are necessary in every aspect of the real estate business. I have a proven track record in sales, customer service, negotiations and finance. If I don’t readily know the answer I have someone on speed dial that does!
I have to admit – I have become a little (ok a lot) obsessed with real estate – the search for the perfect property for our waterfront retirement home started me on my most fulfilling career path yet.
It’s not all work and no play, we enjoy lots of aspects of the Emerald Coast especially boating and fishing. We also enjoy the beaches, camping, riding, and the up and coming culinary experiences popping up here from craft breweries and distilleries to some really amazing “foodie” experiences. I am an active volunteer and enjoy giving back to my community. I volunteer with several organizations where I can help with things that I am passionate about. I am also active in the Emerald Coast Association of Realtors, being a member of both; Community and Military Outreach Committee as well as the Soldiers on the Water Task Force.
I look forward to putting my knowledge and expertise of the Emerald Coast real estate market to work for you.

"Melinda was outstanding in helping us find the perfect condo. We live and work on the West Coast and she took the time to research and make arrangements to show us units that were within our budget and near the area we wanted to be, all while we where there for a very short time. Melinda is punctual and professional."

"We met Melinda just by chance when we were looking at a condo in Ft. Walton. She offered her help on a purchase and we were so glad she was involved. Her knowledge of the area and expertise in handling the paperwork was the biggest help. Being from out of State I don't know how we would have got this done with her. Great person, great agent to work with. We would recommend Melinda to anyone looking for property in the Ft. Walton/Destin area."
