Don Johnson

I came to the Crystal Coast 10 years ago and we absolutely fell in love with the area.
Everyday I go out and about its just as exciting as the first day I saw this area.  I can offer my clients over 20 years of experience and exceptional customer service. After working for traditional real estate firms I saw a need to do things a little different. Traditional company's take 30%-50% of an agents income yet they really offer nothing more than shelter from the rain. I started Crystal Coast Realty Group knowing the agent no longer needs the big office, They no longer need to check in for messages, they no longer need to go to the office to look at MLS books and clients no longer visit the office when looking to buy or sell a home. All my agents receive 100% of their commission and pay only a small fee per transaction. This allows them to better serve their clients and allows them money for marketing your property and allows us to charge less while making more. Its a proven concept that benefits agents and clients alike.



Our advantage is experience and communication. Our agents offer some of the best experience in our local market. One of the biggest complaints from clients is that their agent is anxious to establish an agency agreement with them then, they do not hear from them. Our agents set up a communication schedule with their clients and communicate in a method you choose. Call, Text, Email its your choice. We will keep you advised of all marketing, showings, feedback, etc.
