Known as "the smile of 30A," Realtor Linda Miller's happy demeanor and iconic red smile logo differentiate her real estate brand and services in The Sunshine State. Part of what prompts these joyous smiles is that her company's listings reflect one of the best-kept secrets in the US--a collection of small, unique, beautiful Florida beach towns nestled quietly between Panama City and Destin. The beach communities of Rosemary Beach, Seaside, Alys and Santa Rosa Beach are located there. 

The 30A name comes from an actual road in South Walton County that spans roughly 20 miles along the Florida Panhandle coastline. 

"People are so happy to make family memories in this community, and one of our current listings is projected to produce $300,000 to $350,000 in rental income this year alone," Linda shares. 

While Linda says 30A started at Seaside 40 years ago with a traditional neighborhood development, it evolved into a national phenomenon now referred to as new urbanism. "Everything anyone needs is within 5 minutes of the community's center, including restaurants, stores and an 18-mile bike path," she adds. 

Linda Miller Real Estate professionals represent listings in this laid-back, mostly golf cart-friendly, architecturally diverse setting, such as 63 Elysee Court, Inlet Beach, listed for $6,995,000. The four-story beach house boasts five bedrooms, five full baths and one half bath. 

"Santimo is an intimate, gated street on the south side of 30A that's very private. It's walking distance within minutes to Alys and Rosemary beaches. Most of the 19 houses on the street are brand-new construction within the last four years," Linda says. 

She says the 6,105-square-foot legacy house on 0.14 acres that she's currently listing was custom-built in 2022 by Benecki Fine Homes headquartered in Atlanta, with its inside design completed by Melanie Turner Interiors.

The happiest of happy hours can be served from the home's rooftop deck with Gulf views or from its elevated pool deck with an attached bar off the kitchen/dining area. The kitchen has a marble waterfall island, scullery, pantry and separate dining room next to a den.

A master suite wing is located on the third floor, which Linda says has a glamorous bedroom, study, bathroom and huge walk-in closet.

The property's four-car attached garage includes a Tesla charging station and an elevator to easily reach other parts of the house.

Linda has a second beach house with the gated community at 74 Elysee Court, listed at $5,795,000. Its three stories harness 5,500 square feet, five bedrooms, five bathrooms and one half bathroom. It also was built in 2022, and includes a private, in-ground pool. It has an attached two-vehicle garage.

The layout of this house is basically the kitchen and great room space on the first level, bedrooms on the second level and bunk room on the third.

Linda Miller Real Estate is a boutique real estate company that Linda personally launched in 2019 after becoming licensed in 1998 and working the area. She became widely recognized after she started taking to open houses a red sofa that resembled two, smiling red lips. She's a member of Who's Who in Luxury Real Estate, which anchors a global network of agents who handle high-end, upscale properties. Her brokerage now includes nine other Realtors and associate brokers.
