About Nathan Abbott Team
Your Native Experts Selling Paradise
The name Abbott is synonymous with real estate along Florida's Emerald Coast. The Abbott's have been making real estate their business since 1950 starting with the original Abbott Realtor, William W. Abbott Sr. In 1970, he became a broker and began selling condominiums at El Matador, one of the first condominiums built in northwest Florida. The Abbott's were involved with the most premier properties along the Emerald Coast. At the time, El Matador, on Okaloosa Island, was the only building with an elevator within two counties.
Steve and Bill Abbott followed in their father's footsteps and founded Abbott Realty in 1977 with a $3,000 investment. Combined with an unsurpassed work ethic, this small monetary investment created a multimillion-dollar-a-year company, employing more than 500 people and becoming the largest employer in NW Florida since the mid 80s.
Nathan, Erin, and Amanda Abbott keep the business in the family by becoming the second generation of Abbott Realtors.

I have always been motivated by personal success. One of my greatest accomplishments was graduating from the University of West Florida with honors while working to put myself through school. I completed my BA in one and a half years and graduated magna cum laude. I tackled my master’s degree on-line so I did not have to compete with a work schedule. On-line learning requires a lot of personal discipline, but I toughed it out and graduated on time in two years. I was awarded the prestigious Outstanding Student Achievement Award for my academic excellence.
After graduation, like Nathan, I took some time to see the world. I traveled to the Caribbean, Costa Rica, Canada and various places within the United States. One of my favorite trips was to Whistler, Canada. As a Florida girl, snow was a completely new experience. I tried snowboarding for the first time and really enjoyed it. Although each place had something to offer, and there were more opportunities for jobs in my specific field afar, I would have to agree with Nathan that there is no place like home. I chose to apply my skills to real estate and have been quite successful doing so. The beauty of the area never ceases to amaze me and I do not take for granted the place I call home.
Let us help you find a home to call your own so you can experience for yourself the pleasures this area has to offer.

I am blessed to say that I was born and raised in the beautiful beach community of Destin, FL. My family has always been involved in real estate and it was not until recently that I realized that my career path would bring me back here. I have always had an adventurous spirit and after graduating from Florida State University I made a move to Chicago, IL to experience life in the city. I lived in Chicago for 5 years and worked in the fashion industry then moved to New York City for the following 4 years to progress in my career. I worked at an apparel showroom and handled sales for contemporary designers along the East Coast and Internationally. Manhattan was my home base but I was able to travel along the East Coast to work with buyers of specialty boutiques and department stores. I managed nearly 200 accounts across 27 states and soon realized that sales were a specialty of my own.
In 2011, during the fashion industry’s slow season, I came back to sunny Florida for a few of the summer months to recharge. I fell in love with the area again and truly appreciated the beauty that surrounded me. My previous work experience taught me how to be aggressive, build relationships, maintain integrity, and work hard. I can now apply my skills to real estate sales. From 2011 to 2012, I was the listing coordinator and marketing director for the Nathan Abbott Team. In 2013, I shifted to a seller specialist, which allows me to focus on call volume with our existing sellers as well as generate new business for the team. I am thankful for this opportunity and look forward to providing the necessary tools to effectively sell your property. I am passionate about what I am doing and hope that you can feel my excitement and positive energy about the beautiful Emerald Coast I now call home again.

Graduated from Georgia Southern University in 2003. After graduation, I worked in banking and mortgage lending for 6 years. During this time, I originated loans for everyone from the first time home buyer to real estate investment conglomerates. After moving to Tallahassee, FL in 2009, my wife and I started our own small business and I begin preparing myself for my journey in real estate. I always had a passion for real estate and truly wanted to find my piece of paradise along the beautiful Emerald Coast of Florida. I envisioned living in Destin from a young age because it offers serenity like no other place. I'm finally here!!! Destin is not only beautiful, but there are many things to do and friendly people to meet.
I work as a buyer specialist for the Nathan Abbott Team, which is a top producing real estate team for ResortQuest and Northwest Florida. We offer exceptional customer service, great contacts, and will work diligently to meet your needs. I hope that you will join me in finding a home down on these emerald shores!

Originally from Louisiana, Brett and his wife Bonnie moved to Destin in 1995 to pursue their dreams of living and owning their own business at the beach. After 12 years and 4 businesses, Brett took his years of experience and began working as a small business consultant and business broker, helping those through the challenges he had experienced himself as an owner. Through all his years in Destin he noticed one fact remained the same – people from all over the country love it here and want to live and work in this community. “It was a natural progression to grow beyond business sales and help people realize their dreams of owning property along the emerald coast. In addition to residential sales I am also a great resource for commercial sales and leasing here at Resortquest”. Brett and his wife Bonnie have 2 wonderful children, Vincent and Giovanna, and 2 dogs. On the weekends you’ll find him out at the beach with the family or paddleboarding in the gulf, bay, or harbor.

As the Closing Coordinator and Administrative Assistant to the team, Frank fills an invaluable position, providing behind-the-scenes support and helping take buyers and sellers through the process, from contract to closing. He understands everyone’s needs are different and tries to see things from the other person’s perspective, always trying to focus on the solution, not the obstacle, to get the deal done.
Frank and his wife of 20+ years moved to the area in 1995 and have really come to appreciate all that Northwest Florida area has to offer. Growing up in a military family and serving his own time in the US Navy, Frank has traveled extensively, living in places such as Hunstville, Atlanta, Boston, Honolulu, Los Angeles, and a few others in-between. After being in the Florida Panhandle he says, “I am always amazed at how much the area offers and am always finding something new." What is my favorite thing about this area? It has to be that no matter where you go or what you’re doing, for how big this area is, there is still somewhat of a small town feel. It’s the kind of place where you can strike up a conversation with just about anybody, and people wave as you drive down the street.”
About real estate and the Nathan Abbott Team Frank says this: “I couldn’t be happier. This is a great team and not only is everyone dedicated to the goal of accomplishing successful real estate transactions, we all realize at the end of the day, it’s about the people we help and the relationships we build.”

I was born and raised in Gulfport, MS where I lived my whole life until Hurricane Katrina. I am a mom of three to the most awesome boys in the world-Owen, Noahh, & Eyin. I remember my very 1st visit to Destin when I was just 11 years old. We stayed at Tops’l Beach & Racquet Resort, which was at that time was an Abbott Resorts property. After that initial first visit, Destin always stayed in my heart and on my mind and I continued the trend once I was older and had children of my own. This became my family vacation spot with my boys. I remember saying back then that I wanted to retire and move to Destin, FL. I would’ve never thought that so few years later I not only would move to this little piece of Heaven on Earth, but would also join the Nathan Abbott Team and become the new listing coordinator and facilitate the marketing.
My background in marketing is extensive, as I worked in casino marketing for the Grand Casino in Gulfport for over 10 years. I also held an active real estate license for the state of Mississippi working with Coldwell Banker Alfonso Realty. After moving to this area in 2005, I continued my niche in real estate, but from a different side of the spectrum, such as development and construction, property management, and HOA management. I have truly been blessed to gain the education, knowledge, and experience needed to become the type of businessperson needed in today’s work force.
I have to say that you should never give up on a possibility. It can be closer than you think. This is an amazing place to live and work and to be able to say that is priceless! With that said, come on over to this unbelievable place and see it first hand. I promise you’ll never want to leave and with our team on stand-by to help with all of your real estate needs, you won’t have too!
