Key Realty of the Emerald Coast | Get to know Kendall Hood, Owner/Broker | 850-974-4556

An Alabama native, who grew up vacationing along the Emerald Coast as a young girl, fell in love with the beaches and the small town feel of the 30a communities. Little did she know those summer vacations were leaving lasting impressions on her heart that would eventually draw her back.

Kendall ventured off to college in Baton Rouge, LA as an LSU Tiger, to study Marketing. Her degree and time at LSU would open doors for her and lead her to the beginning of her career in the Big Apple. Kendall spent several years heading up the marketing efforts for the Waldorf Astoria hotel in NYC, but the big city lights and hustle and bustle could not compare to her love for the beach.

In 2006, Kendall found herself drawn back to coastal living, moved to Destin, FL and jumped feet first into the world of Real Estate. Kendall exclusively sold with the Emerald Grande for six years before obtaining her Broker’s License and building Key Realty of the Emerald Coast. Now, with close to 15 years of Real Estate experience, Kendall has built a brand reputation that has given her the opportunity to sell all along the Emerald Coast, from the beautiful beaches of Navarre, FL to exclusive Gulf Front homes of the 30a community in South Walton.

Kendall has a true passion for Real Estate and serving her clients, she is happiest handing over the key to a new home, a beach retreat, or the perfect investment property. Her goal is to take care of her clients and to help them make the best Real Estate decisions of their lives.

In her free time, Kendall enjoys time with her family; husband Jim, and her two children, Trace and Annabelle. As a family, they love the outdoors, taking family trips, weekends at the beach, and time spent with friends.

Andrea Gallagher is originally from the Midwest and was born and raised in Fort Wayne Indiana. She is most proud of her role as wife to her husband and childhood best friend, Eddie Gallagher and is the mother of 3 amazing children; Treven, Ava, and Ryan.

As a former military spouse, Andrea spent the majority of her husband’s career; as a Navy SEAL, raising their children in San Diego CA. Eddie’s military service consisted of 9 combat deployments spanning from 1999-2019 and was extremely fast paced. After 20 years of dedicated service retirement was on the horizon and Andrea knew her family needed a new place to call home.

Like many military personnel Eddie trained at various locations and bases in the area during his career and after a family vacation to the area in March of 2018 Andrea and her family fell in love with area and purchased their retirement home on the 30A shortly thereafter.

❤️ There is no doubt in mind heart and mind that @andrea_gallagher_ will quickly rise to the top in the Real Estate industry!

Nevan, born and raised right outside of Austin, Texas, first visited the Emerald
Coast in 2013 and instantly developed an obsession for the area. From the
beautiful beaches, amazing golf, and luxury real estate, Nevan and his family
considered the Emerald Coast as a home away from home.

After vacationing

in Miramar Beach, and decided to add to that in 2020, and finally moving here
full time in 2021.

Some of Nevan's favorite activities to do in his free time include; taking a drive
down 30A, playing a round of golf at the Sandestin courses, and going to eat
with his family; Shunk Gulley, Fat Clemenza's, and Red Bar are his favorites.

Nevan truly has a passion for Real Estate, and is always looking for the best houses and deals around the area. He looks forward to helping you find your next investment property, vacation home, or primary residence.
