I bought my first house over 25 years ago. It was in California during the CA housing bubble which popped and I lost my shirt on that house. But I learned an immense amount about the real estate market from that experience and became a very savvy investor from that point forward. I enjoyed a 20 year career in the US Air Force as an Astronautical Engineer (Rocket Scientist) and Flight Test Engineer flying back-seat in F-16 aircraft. Throughout my career I bought several properties that have all been wonderful investments. I retired from Eglin AFB in 2011 after being a Squadron Commander & Deputy Group Commander and immediately had my first child, Bodie, who is absolutely the light of my life. Rather than stay in the defense industry, I decided to get my real estate license to be able to share my knowledge and experience in helping you with all of your real estate needs.
Licensed Realtor in the area since 1988. Have helped thousands of Buyers and Sellers with their Real Estate needs and most have been repeat customers. I Love SEC football. I work with first time Buyers, Sellers, Builders, Developers, Repo's, Flippers and Investors. Grew up in Military family and familiar with the Military move. Put my 30 years of experience to work for you.
I moved to the Emerald Coast with the military in 1991. After retirement, my family made this our permanent home so I am very familiar with this area and its housing market. I work with all types of buyers and sellers to include investors, builders, foreclosures, short sales, and vacation home buyers but I really enjoy first time buyers – I see it as my opportunity to help people understand the buying and selling process. This is why I selected this as my second career. I also find it challenging and rewarding to match each client’s needs with the right property for them. I go above and beyond for each and every client. Quality service is my goal.
Repeat business is the result! I would love to help you find your slice of paradise!
My name is Karla MacWilliams. Military life brought me to this area 11 years ago, and my children and I now call this place home. I always had a special love for real estate but being a full time mom and having a full time job, the path for real estate wasn’t something that fit at the time. With that said, life has taken me a few different routes lately and I am now the licensed real estate agent I longed to be. I majored in marketing in college where I worked in the rental and condominium industry which fed my love for real estate, and from there I moved to Florida and worked in a financial institution. I pursued the lending route and eventually I followed my ultimate goal to become a real estate agent. I spent my first 5 years in Florida in beautiful Fort Walton Beach. I’ve never seen such beautiful beaches and the shopping is endless. I fell in love immediately. I now live in Navarre where I have lived the last six years. I have become very familiar and would love to answer any questions you have. There is no place like Florida and if given the opportunity to own property here, do it! I love this area and once I show you around, I’m convinced you will love it too. I’m here doing what I love, I’m part of a great team, and our goal is to help you find your future home. I’m looking forward to seeing what I can help you with, call me today and let’s gets started !!!

Born December 10 1964 in Hampton, Virginia, to Joseph and Rusty Capelotti, Joe began his life as a “military brat” to a very young Airman who had just begun his career in the United States Air Force. Joe had the opportunity to travel as a child to numerous different locations such as Germany, Thailand and Korea. His family settled down in Camp Springs, Maryland and he attended school there and graduated from Crossland Senior High. In order to pursue in his fathers footsteps as a United States Air Force as a non-commissioned officer, he enlisted in July 1983. Joe attended his basic training at Lackland AFB, Texas and his Jet Engine Mechanic Training at Chanute AFB, Illinois and then was assigned to Seymour Johnson AFB, North Carolina Soon after moving there, met his wife, Lisa Black, in 1984. They were married in 1985 and had their first child, Tyler soon after.
Joe and his family spent some time apart during his career as he received assignments to various parts of the world to include Rhein Main Air Base, Germany and Kirkuk Air Base, Iraq for Operation Desert Storm and Operation Iraqi Freedom. During this time apart however they did have the opportunity to increase their family size by adopting a 13 year old girl, Kara and making their family complete.
In 2005 Joe took the steps to set up his 2nd career by obtaining his real estate license and began helping his fellow military counter-parts, friends in purchasing and selling their homes under the brokerage of Coastal Realty Services. Joe's military career came to an honorable close in Aug of 2009 when he officially retired from the USAF after 26 years and later took on a position as the Maintenance Director for the same company and their 600+ rental program.
In 2010, Joe was selected to become the new Director of Property Management and began the task of building a bigger company within the real estate realm and the property management division. He revamped and aided in building the program to a total of 850 doors managed along with a team of 8 people to include his son and daughter as newly licensed and active property managers. Meanwhile, personally, Joe and his wife had taken in their 13 year old niece also since 2015, Summer Black, and are currently navigating the adoption ropes once again.
In 2016 Joe took on the position as Vice President of Sales for the same company and is continuing to help build successful teams and partnerships with other local agents within the community. He volunteers weekly to lead the Ft Walton Beach MLS Tour and has spent the last year working within the Professional Development Committee helping to build “hands-on” training sessions for local Realtors appropriately called WorkShop Wednesdays.
Joe has not let his dedication to the Realtor profession sit idle. He continues working his personal development by completing the 100 series for his GRI and has completed the requirements to carry his SRS designation. He has currently been working diligently with the ECAR Professional Development Committee to lead the development of a course geared towards new agents in helping them move closer to becoming proficient and ensuring their customers confidence in the Realtor community remains high and the new agents success is solidified as much as possible. The YESS (Your ECAR Success Strategy) Designation course is on track to begin in the first quarter of 2021. He also was the Vice Chair of the ECAR Leadership Development Program where he assisted his class in the development of a Scholarship program for new agents that qualify and are selected by a judging panel to become agents in the area. Joe's commitment to ensuring the Realtor Profession as well as his local associations ability to strengthen their community awareness and trust is unsurpassed and on display daily within his Realtor family. His high respect and trust amongst his peers is always evident. This was also highly evident with his selection as Vice President of the Emerald Coast Association of Realtors for calendar year 2021 and onward to President in 2023 as well as his selection for the 2020 Ft Walton Beach Realtor of the Year and 2020 Emerald Coast Association Realtor of the Year awards.

I began my Real Estate career in 2010 as the Maintenance Director for Coastal Realty Services. I received my Sales Associate license in 2012 and became a property manager.

I met my now wife at the age of 18 while attending UCF and we are the proud parents of two beautiful girls, Gianna Isabella & Mila Rose. Typically, I spend most of my free time enjoying the company of my family - whether that is on/near the water or supporting our favorite sports teams. I grew up as a ‘military brat’ and have been in the local area since 1994, so I’m intimately familiar with anything & everything the Emerald Coast has to offer. I am actively involved in my local community as a member of Beachside Community Church and I’ve recently completed a 3 year term as a member of the Emerald Coast Association Realtors Board of Realtors as the Property Management Director.

My hobbies and interests include fishing, supporting college football, kayaking/canoeing/boating, and playing/singing with my church orchestra and choir.

My name is Kelly Goodsell - Thank you to my husband for the perfect last name! I am one of the lucky ones who was born and raised right here on the Emerald Coast and now my husband and I are raising our two daughters here as well. I received a Bachelors in Business/Management from UWF and before I became a real estate agent I was a recruiter for higher education. I really enjoyed getting to meet new people to help them find their dream jobs. The skills I gained in that position transfer well to my position as a Realtor, I am now searching for homes now instead of jobs! I also enjoy being involved in community events and have organized several local events to raise money for charities like the March of Dimes as well as Toys 4 Tots. It's important to me to stay involved in the community and give back as much as possible. I absolutely love the Emerald Coast area and I'm excited to have the opportunity to help others make a home here too. My passion to become a Realtor began when my husband and I purchased a home and I saw the work that our agent put in to make the process stress free for us (this agent also happens to be part of the Coastal team). Seeing the work he did for us I knew right away... I want to do that, I want to be a Realtor, I want to help people find the place they will call home. So a short while later and after a lot of studying and researching, here I am! I enjoy working with the Coastal Realty team and can truly say that we are just that, a team. In every transaction I have a team of people with me to be sure each person I work with is getting the very best service. I look forward to continuing to build trusting relationships with my customers and helping them find the right home for them!

Niceville and the Emerald Coast are great places to live and work, which is why I chose to call it home. Originally from Goldsboro, NC, I was first introduced to the area when my husband was stationed at Eglin AFB in 2005. I have over 10 years experience in the real estate industry. I recognize and value the trust my clients place in me and believe it is important to build those relationships and strive every day to exceed their expectations. My extensive background in real estate sales and property management have provided me with valuable skills that I use in negotiating, effective marketing, and educating buyers and sellers in our local market.
In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family on the beautiful beaches and reading a good book.
I was born and raised in Louisiana until I joined the Marines when I was 17. I have been blessed to live in many different states during my life thanks to the military life. I am married to the love of my life, who just happens to be an Alabama State Police Investigator. We have 4 grown children. Our youngest son served in the Marine Corp and our oldest son is still serving our country in the Army. I am a “Nae Nae” to a 4-year-old granddaughter and a 1-year-old grandson. I spend most of my time in Ft. Walton Beach where our home is located, but am an avid deer hunter, so during hunting season can be found in the woods in Alabama. I am making my dream come true of being my “own” boss through the grace and answered prayers of God! I pray to make your dreams of buying a "forever" home or selling your current home come true.
I began my real estate career in Alabama in 2008. My husband and I moved here in 2015 not only due to his job with the Air Force but for our future to one day retire here in the beautiful Emerald Coast. Real Estate is not only a job I chose, but a passion. I have always been interested not only in the business side of real estate, but the customer service side by helping people connect with their first home, their vacation home, an investment property, or even their home for retirement, which brings me personal fulfillment. In my time off, I enjoy paddleboarding, relaxing at the beach, painting, and playing with my four kids and seven grandkids. I love being part of our community and helping all those I can by being on committees such as Soldiers on the Water, and other committees to help those in need. I look forward to helping you with your next steps by using my experiences and knowledge to connect you with your perfect home, investment property, or vacation home. I look forward to speaking to you soon!

I first came to the emerald coast 24 years ago with the Air Force. Although I have traveled and lived in many places around the world, my heart never really left. My wife and I decided to settle down in Navarre after I retired. I have two children and am an active member in my community. I recall what it felt like during my first home purchase, knowing so little and feeling like I was being taken for a ride. So I promised myself to learn everything I could about real estate so as to never experience that feeling again. I want to ensure you have those same tools before going to the table and to make sure your home buying or selling experience goes as smooth as possible knowing you have someone knowledgeable you can trust at your side.
