Born and raised in the Florida Panhandle, Sarah Stone returned to the Emerald Coast after a fast-paced sales career in Atlanta. When a builder in the family asked her to move to the beach to sell new homes, it was an easy "yes." Today, she is a broker associate for Scenic Sotheby's International Realty, where she focuses her business on buyers and sellers interested in properties from Destin to Rosemary Beach, Okaloosa Island, Niceville and Panama City Beach.
She earned her bachelor's degree in communications from Florida State University and worked in advertising and marketing at Edwin Watts Golf Shops' corporate office. She enjoys being around people, gaining wisdom from their experiences. Many of her long-time customers feel like family, a testament to her business that is 90 percent repeat and referral clients. She believes in creating a worry-free process for her customers. Sarah holds dear two of the company's core values: "We persist without exception. We choose to be happy." She cites her grit and determination as well as her faith with carrying her through the tough times. Sarah works hard to earn the trust of her clients and demonstrates patience, letting them know right away she is operating on their timeline. She works hard to always apply "The Golden Rule" to her business.
At Scenic Sotheby's International Realty, Sarah has been nominated by her peers to receive the Ridge Nye Award for most inspirational team member and has been elected to the Leadership Council three times. She is also the multi-time recipient of the Extraordinary Award, bestowed upon agents with more than $15 million in sales volume in a calendar year.
In her free time, Sarah enjoys Pilates, yoga, skiing, boating, shopping and going to the spa. She aspires to be an "IronFan," cheering her husband on in many full- and half-Ironman events. She is a founding board member and treasurer for Destin High School, which opened in August 2021, treating it as a passion project since 2016.
