30A Local Properties, Inc Testimonials

It has been a year since we purchased our fabulous Destin beach condo!

We contacted Jackie Ogle after hearing she was a great person to work with. I gave her guidelines which were almost impossible to meet because I wanted the perfect place for us. Jackie did not blink an eye…we picked 24 to look at in ONE Weekend! Jackie was very organized, managed our time well, and always had a great attitude while being very pregnant, it was a very hot July! The unit we wanted to see… could not be seen until mid day Sunday which was our last day to find a condo. She made the visit happen early morning so we would not be on the road at a late hour. ALL of us were never so excited it was the one. Jackie fulfilled ever thing on my impossible list and more. All of our family and friends who have had the opportunity to visit the condo have been very complimentary of the location and all of them say this looks like something off of DIY Network! Thanks so much Jackie for finding our dream Condo!

Bought a Single Family home in Freeport, FL.

Leslie Miller went ABOVE and BEYOND for us. She was very professional and handled requests and questions in a timely manner. There were a few obstacles in the way of our new home. She outlined the options, their potential outcomes, and her opinion. We were able to make sound decisions because of  her. She was in our corner and ready to negotiate the best deal with us in her best interests. She is now in a very small and selective group we call friend.

07/19/2020 - Bought a Single Family home in 2020 in Inlet Beach, FL from Steven Jackson.

I found Local 30A online and was connected to Steve Jackson. We had never been to the Santa Rosa Beach area and informed Steve of that. He said he would gladly show us around the various areas so that we can get a feel for which one we liked. Steve spent two days enthusiastically showing us around and showing us various homes, even though he knew the odds of us buying a house while we were there were close to 0%. However, since we liked Santa Rosa Beach and Steve did such a great time showing us around and explaining the ambiance of each area, we ended up buying a beautiful home. Throughout the process, Steve was professional and always available. He explained everything thoroughly and made us feel comfortable and informed. Steve is an asset to his company, the community, and anyone that uses his services.

He listened carefully to our wishlist and did his best to find a place that suited us. Steve shepherded us through every step of the closing process. He was always available to answer questions and was a tremendous resource and problem solver. We would wholeheartedly recommend Steven Jackson to anyone looking for a great real estate agent!


We used Jackie to sell the house we were in, and buy our current house.

She got the house we were in to closing in a slow market with other houses in the neighborhood for sale. We were so grateful for the care she took in getting showings. And being willing to show at a moments notice. Jackie was always available, always professional, well researched on market values, and understood fully what we were looking for. If we had issues with the buyer or seller, she was very firm in representing our interests. I highly recommend her as an agent.

He was always available to answer any questions, acted professionally, and was sensitive to my needs. Steve went above and beyond in what turned out to be a purchase fraught with unforeseen complications. He also continues to assist me by referring me to service people in rhe area. He is personable, respectful, and honest. Steve is a man with superior ethics. I have already referred him to others wishing to purchase or sell a property. I also previously employed Steve's services in the sale of a house, and he had many helpful suggestions, and we had a most positive outcome. He is the kind of person one would want as a friend.

This was probably the best and most efficient house buying experience I've ever had.

Over the years I've bought and sold a number of properties, some for personal use and some investments ones, but this was the easiest and most friction-free buying process by far. Leslie and David work as a team  and their strengths are complementary. They have a keen sense for what the customer wants (vibe, features, layout) and have a great pulse on the local market. You will absolutely be happy and impressed with either Leslie's or David's diligence, directness, and follow-through.

Leslie was extremely responsive and helpful through the course of purchasing our home.

She had a great team of inspectors and subcontractors that were able to address potential issues at the home in a timely manner. The closing went extremely smoothly and are appreciative of the guidance and support from Leslie throughout the process.

To whom it may concern, I just wanted to take a moment to share our experience dealing with Jackie Ogle.

First of all, ours was a chance meeting. My wife and I have visited the area loads of times in the past and thought it was about time we take the plunge. We were introduced to Jackie and knew immediately that she was the right realtor for us. She was always available for us even though we dealt with her while out of town. Always answers the phone with loads of energy and grace. Most importantly, she put up with all my nonsense! I’m not easy to deal with! When it came down to narrowing it down to a few places, Jackie showed them to us several times. As a long time local, she explained the pluses and minuses of each area. It finally came down to choosing a place, she was very reassuring and a great negotiator. Bottom line, we couldn’t recommend her enough. She was simply great! We will always appreciate her as our agent and hope to be a life long friend now that we too are “local” beach property owners. Thanks so much Jackie!

His communication and prompt responsiveness was unwavering and made us feel very well taken care of during this process. Being in such an unprecedented time, he was able to guide us in such a professional and caring manner. He went above and beyond helping us with the sale of our home. I honestly could not recommend him enough. We will certainly be using him again in the future.


07/03/2020 - Sold a Condo home in 2020 in Santa Rosa Beach, FL by Steven Jackson Steven listed our property on 30A and it was in contract in a week.

We were very pleased with our experience and how quickly it sold. We contribute this to Steven’s ambitious drive to do his best for his customer and his supreme knowledge of the real estate market on 30A. He’s very precise and always responded immediately to my text and calls. My husband and I hope to purchase again soon on 30A and we will definitely be having Steven do what he does best. It truly has been a pleasure working with him and watching him make things happen!


Jackie Ogle and 30A Properties are incredible to work with and clearly the best choice in Destin Florida.

Searching for and buying a new home can be very difficult and stressful. Jackie was able to smooth the process and calm my anxiety by expertly guiding me through the complex maze. Her calm, friendly, professional demeanor is the perfect combination for success. Thanks to Jackie I was able to find my dream home quickly and efficiently and best of all she helped negotiate the best price. Thank you Jackie. Well done.

6/5/19 - Buyer Local knowledge: 5 Process expertise: 5 Responsiveness: 5 Negotiation skills: 5 My Wife and I were retiring to the Seaside area so we needed someone who knew the area and could advise us.

We are so thankful that we used Steve Jackson. We could not have asked for a kinder or more knowledgeable person than Steve. He went above & beyond in assisting and helping us find just the right home on 30a. We HIGHLY recommend Steve Jackson to anyone looking to buy in the 30a area. He is the best realtor hands out we have ever worked with.
