Franklin County, Florida

is a rare find in the Florida Panhandle, or anywhere for that matter. Our pristine beaches, miles of peaceful river, and numerous antique homes will remind you of the Florida you once knew a long, long time ago.

The area comprising Apalachicola and St. George Island is a special place--a place for those seeking natural beauty, a relaxed lifestyle, and an active and close community. Here, we celebrate what we don't have: traffic, noise, strip malls; and we hold dear our individuality and sense of place.

I believe that the Forgotten Coast is the best place in the world in which to live, work and play. If you are ready to make a change and if this sounds like the Florida you've been looking for, please contact me today--I'd love to exceed your expectations.

What Others are Saying

"My wife Sally and I discovered Apalachicola in 2009 and quickly knew that we wanted to make this our vacation / retirement home. A year later, we decided to make a move. After looking at several agents' profiles, Anna-Maria's professionalism, character and personality jumped off the screen. I called to let her know that we would be coming to town to look at property and wanted to schedule some time with her. We ended up spending a few hours together and looked at a number of different properties in town.

We were drawn to this "old Florida" town and Anna-Maria's knowledge of its rich past and historical neighborhood and buildings was excellent. She listened carefully, answered our questions and offered insight. She guided us through different options and we quickly made our decision.

We've been very happy with our purchase close to downtown and it would not have been possible without the help of Anna-Maria. Not only is she an extremely knowledgeable, patient professional, but also a total delight. Apalachicola and all its charm, is a "world away" experience for us and we always look forward to our next visit, which is never soon enough. We continue to recommend Anna-Maria to our friends and look forward to working with her again in the future.

Thank you so much, Anna-Maria. You helped change our lives."
