By way of introducing myself – my name is John Dickerson. I am one of the Realtors at A List Beach Realty ready to help you find a new home. I am a Florida-licensed Realtor, a registered Geophysicist, an aviator, a sailer of small boats, a lifelong photographer, and a dabbler in oil paints. I look forward to assisting you in finding the perfect home to immerse yourself and your family in the warmth of the people and the beauty of Florida’s Emerald Coast.
Prior to being a Realtor, I worked for 40-plus years as a geophysicist. For more than 30 of those years I worked for, with, and alongside active and former DoD personnel in the Alaskan arctic and South Pacific Islands, East Asia and the Atlantic Seaboard, the Aleutian Islands and the Sandwich Isles, the Mid-West, the desert Southwest, the Rocky Mountains, and the Gulf Coast of Florida. I have lived in, worked in, visited or traveled through every U.S. territory in the Pacific and every state in the Union except Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Rhode Island and North Carolina.
Thirteen years ago, while visiting from California, my wife told me I needed to decide which of the two houses she had found that we were going to buy. Two days later we owned a new home in one of the Hammock Bay neighborhoods in Freeport, Florida, and we have celebrated that decision ever since.
Six months after moving here we bought a 37-foot cutter – older, in need of tender loving care, but sail-able, and in it I have plied the bays and bayous of the Emerald Coast. Having run aground more than once, I’ve gained intimate knowledge of the Choctawhatchee Bay and adjacent bayous and an ever growing appreciation of the surrounding communities.
One of my goals in working as a Realtor is to help new arrivals to Eglin AFB find just the right home to allow them enjoy, as do my wife and I, their experience in the Florida sun, whether it be for a short-time or a lifetime on the Emerald Coast.
