As March initiates the beginning of Spring Break mania, and our local communities all brace for—and embrace—the coming high tourist season, we thought it would be a great time to see what the average visitor to the Florida panhandle looks in terms of demographics.

Affordable waterfront lifestyles are not easy to come by along Florida’s coveted Emerald Coast. Add new construction and great amenities to the mix, and the combination becomes nearly non-existent apart from the Premier Property Group’s (PPG’s) exclusive Miller’s Landing on Lake Powell.

As we approach the holidays, the team at Premier Property Group (PPG) wants to be among the first to send you warm wishes for a memorable season.

The Premier Group will reach another milestone this month with the completion of the newest building in the Brownstones development at Kelly Plantation. Following completion of the fourth building in this celebrated community, the company will bring four brand new residences into the sought after Destin market.
