Shannon and Kristi Payne’s family has enjoyed visiting the Emerald Coast as a vacation destination for many years. This husband and wife selling team made it their permanent home in 2015. As what happens for many, the Gulf pulled at their heartstrings, and they knew this is where they wanted their family to be.
A career in real estate was a natural progression for this couple. It presented them the opportunity to work together and played to their individual backgrounds and strengths. This husband and wife duo have built several houses, and the process fascinates them. Kristi has a personal passion for interior design and both she and Shannon are intrigued by raw land and envisioning the perfect house plan or development for that land.
Born and raised in NE Georgia, Shannon spent 18 years as a farmer and 4 years building homes. Shannon was the project manager during their farm’s construction. Building the multimillion dollar farming operation was an enormous undertaking, requiring planning and coordination for over a year, while simultaneously managing the financing and daily operations of the farm. He has a keen eye for detail and for finding a way to get the job done.
With several years also spent in the boating industry, Shannon can assist you with finding the perfect gulf, bay, or canal front property. He will share valuable insight on local marinas and the waterways of our area.
And to add to his list of expertise, since 2012 Shannon has acquired a vast knowledge about cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Litecoin, and would be happy to assist with any of your crypto-property needs.
Kristi hails from South Carolina and appreciates the fine art of Southern charm and hospitality. She will use her own expert attention to detail to help you find your perfect piece of paradise. For the last 7 years, Kristi has been homeschooling 2 of their children. No small task! Her strengths of an incredibly strong work ethic and excellent communication skills couple perfectly with her first love: to help people.
