Coastal Realty Services has been serving military servicemen and civilians for over 35 years, and one of the biggest joys we have is helping a young family find their first home. These are the formative years for your children, and a time in your life that you'll always cherish. It's for this reason why we recommend that young families take a look at the Fort Walton Beach area to find that lifetime family home. Here are three good reasons we came up with in our experiences:
Career Development: Fort Walton Beach has a number of job opportunities available. Our strongest employer is the US Military for both servicemen and civilians, as Hurlburt Field and Eglin AFB are both nearby. In that same arena, Defense Contractors frequently are hiring as new projects become available. Finally, because Fort Walton Beach is a vacation destination for many across the country, the hospitality industry is always in need of good people. For more resources on finding a job in Fort Walton Beach, we recommend visiting the Fort Walton Beach Chamber of Commerce work page.
A Great School System: One of the most important considerations when looking for a new place to live is the school system. We are happy to report that children of the Fort Walton Beach area can enjoy a fine education through the Okaloosa County School District. The Okaloosa County School District consists of a wide number of elementary schools, middle schools, high schools, charter schools and alternative schools that can serve your child, depending on your location and his/her individual needs.
Easy Access: It's incredibly easy to get around Fort Walton Beach. You can walk, drive or take advantage of the Okaloosa County Transit system. In addition, Fort Walton Beach is home to Northwest Florida Regional Airport, which is within Eglin Air Force Base. Airlines that service this airport include US Airlways, American Airlines, and Delta. Flights are available to stops all across the South.
