Agent Spotlight: Bert Summerville-Kain

Bert Summerville-Kain

This is Bert.   She wears many hats, spins many plates, plays many roles.   However you say it, Bert is one busy lady.

As a kid vacationing in Seaside, my dad would give me $20 “spending money”.   Every year, I blew it at Quincy Avenue Art & Things, a quirky store with unique toys, art & art supplies for artists of all ages and skill level.

Bert is the owner of this magical store, which was recently profiled in The Thirty-A Review.   

“I call my store the ‘fun art store – not the ‘fine’ art store,” Bert explains.

The possibilities are endless once you step inside Bert’s wonderland, located in the heart of Seaside in Early Morning Hours – the artist district of Seaside.   She lives above the store in a European loft style apartment, only she has a terrace with a 360° view of Seaside and the Gulf beyond.   You can see what I’m talking about here & here.  Which brings me to another hat.   Bert runs a successful vacation rental business as well & she can tell you a thing or two about an income producing investment property.  Like this fabulous listing she represents just across the courtyard from her own residence.

“Nothing satisfies me more than achieving major accomplishments.   Throughout my life and in every endeavor I have pursued, I have always held myself to the highest standard.  I especially relate this to my career and my clients.”

If you find yourself in Seaside this summer, be sure to swing by Quincy Avenue Art & Things, you will be pleased to find a store as fun & stylish as Bert herself.   The store participates in Seaside’s famed First Friday Art Walk, featuring live art demonstrations & libations.
