When Joan Russo first visited the Emerald Coast she found the haven that she would soon call home. The white sands, clear emerald green water, and quiet beaches gave the feeling that she had stumbled onto her own private paradise. That was over 20 years ago. Joan joined La Florida Coastal Properties, L.L.C. with the mission to help others find the perfect place to build their own dreams among the pristine beaches and live the idyllic lifestyle that the Destin and 30A areas offer.
