Manager info

Year Purchased: 1997

About: My husband and I were both born and raised in Pittsburgh, PA. We've been married 40 yrs. and have 2 daughters, 1 son-in-law, 1 grandson and a Yorkiepoo dog. We enjoy traveling, boating, tennis, paddle tennis, auto racing, Pittsburgh Steelers and Penquins and spending time with our family and friends.

Why Tops'l The Summit:
I first visited Destin in 1969 while visiting my sister and brother-in-law who lived in nearby Ft. Walton Beach. After marriage and the birth of our daughters, we began visiting Destin every summer and at times some of the holidays. One rare rainy day during our 1996 summer vacation to Destin, we decided to look at a new construction condo development in a popular Resort area. After seeing the beauty of this Resort and the area surrounding Tops'l, we couldn't resist the urge to purchase our first condo. The construction was completed and we moved into our new unit early in 1997. Nine years later we sold it and purchased unit 514 which, in our opinion, has a better Gulf view and Resort view. We never regretted our move and have now owned this unit for 8 yrs. We feel so fortunate to have had this opportunity to share many memorable moments with our daughters and other family members. We now hope to have many happy memories and experiences with our grandchildren.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
We found Tops'l Beach & Racquet Resort to be a very family-friendly Resort. Just the type of place to feel comfortable with children. Once we saw the beautiful views offered from the 5th fl. end unit, we knew this was exactly where we wanted to spend our free time and possibly retire someday.
