Horizontal hardwood cottage paneling adorns the walls to create a comfortable atmosphere that at the same time conveys sophistication and elegance.

Specializing as a buyer’s agent in Florida along Scenic Highway 30A, Sandestin, and Destin for the last five years, Christina Meinen knows how to navigate the rough waters of successful real estate investing. Christina’s passion gives a refreshing spin on real estate investing and her commitment to finding each buyer the best deal to fit their wants and needs.


Christina moved to the Emerald Coast to help buyers invest just two days after graduating from Mississippi State with a degree in Real Estate and Mortgage Appraisal Financing. Her zeal paid off as she quickly established herself as one of the area’s up and coming Realtors and her sales volume has steadily increased ever since. Last year Christina sold $8.9 million in real estate. By April 10 of this year, she has already sold $4.5 million – with an additional $5.6 million under contract as of May 1.


Recently married in July 2008, Christina changed her last name from McAllister to Meinen. Not only did she marry her bestfriend, but her husband Andy is now part of the team and his former journalism/Internet marketing background has been very beneficial in moving Christina’s career to the next level.


To ease your search and not waste your valuable time, Christina offers virtual window shopping right from the comfort of a private conference room along 30A. It is a great way to preview properties with Christina on a flat screen TV to grasp the feel for interiors of homes, areas to consider, and price ranges available before you head off on your tour of properties together.

From looking through beach homes, to making an offer, to cutting through the red tape, Christina will be there for you.

Seaside, Florida


Seaside is a walkable neighborhood along Scenic Highway 30A in South Walton that is perfect for second home buyers or investment property.

Seaside is a walkable neighborhood along Scenic Highway 30A in South Walton that is perfect for second home buyers or investment property.


Idyllic Seaside with its white picket fences and walkable streets is the birthplace of New Urbanism. A wide sugary stretch of white sand runs along Seaside. The town is anchored by a vast central square that is filled with quaint shops and tasty eateries.


Seaside is so perfect that the Jim Carry movie The Truman Show was filmed in the town. The architecture brings narrow streets and tall house together and is perfect for an evening stroll or an afternoon bike ride. Gravel paths crisscross the town in a patchwork of hidden scrub brush lined lanes. The homes were designed with deep roof overhangs to help block the afternoon sun, long porches to capture the salty gulf breezes and open living areas to bring families and friends together.

Several community pools and tennis courts, along with bike rentals make this one of the complete townships along the Emerald Coast.

Christina Meinen is a Realtor, who specializes in real estate and investment property in Seaside and along Scenic Highway 30A in  South Walton County. Call her today at 850.974.9704 or check out her new Real Estate Web site.
