Tim Snelling has been on a long journey to finally call Santa Rosa Beach his permanent home and is delighted to be a Buyer’s Agent on The Carlyle Team at Scenic Sotheby’s International Realty.
Tim grew up in Indiana and graduated from Indiana University Business School, with highest distinction, with dual majors in Finance and Accounting. He later obtained his MBA from the University of Chicago. He has spent 20-plus years as a senior executive in Sales and Marketing at Fortune 100 companies, PepsiCo and Kimberly Clark. As a national sales leader for both companies he was able to travel extensively across the US and Canada for more than a decade, but always knew the Florida Panhandle, and specifically the beaches of South Walton County, would be the final destination for him and his family.
Tim discovered the beauty and uniqueness of the Emerald Coast during an early assignment in his career as Territory Sales Manager for Gatorade (PepsiCo). Calling on every retail outlet, school, and community from Pensacola to Panama City provided a unique understanding of the panhandle marketplace. After moving on to different corporate roles and away from the area, Tim continued to regularly visit Destin and 30A with family and friends as a vacationer. He began studying the Real Estate market as a future homeowner and investor.
After 20 years of visiting and enjoying the area, Tim and his family became homeowners in Santa Rosa Beach on 30A in 2010. More recently, after his tenure in senior executive roles and 9 corporate relocations to Chicago, Atlanta, New York, Dallas, and Wisconsin, he and his family moved to South Walton. Tim is pursuing his passion for Real Estate and helping people realize their dream of owning beach property.
Tim’s client approach is highly personalized, investment-minded and professional, with a strong work ethic to find the perfect property for his clients’ needs and goals. Combining Tim’s extensive market knowledge and analytical, investment-minded approach, he will find the right property match for needs ranging from primary residence, second home, investment or rental property. Tim’s commitment is to listen to his clients and take the time and measures to find their perfect property match.
When not with clients or in the office, you can find Tim enjoying all that the Florida Panhandle has to offer an outdoor enthusiast; including, beaching, paddle boarding, biking, running, playing golf and tennis.
