Rhonda “RJ” Johnson
I am a Florida native. Destin has been my home for over 40 years!!! After graduating from high school, I moved to Tampa, FL, where I studied at the University of South Florida. In Tampa, I had some really excellent experiences doing Marketing and Public Relations for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the The Tampa Bay Lightning. I also had a very successful career with over 20 years of experience as an Account Manager for the NBC and CBS Affiliates in North Carolina and South Florida.
I moved back from the St. Petersburg/Tampa area to the beautiful Emerald Coast in 2016 to be closer to my family. Real Estate was always something I wanted to get into. In 2016, I began my career in Real Estate as Business Development Manager for rental properties with ResortQuest Vacation Rentals. ResortQuest Real Estate, which is NOW Vacasa Real Estate is Northwest Florida’s most reputable company for over 40+ years! I have incredible knowledge of the entire market from Ft. Walton Beach to Panama City Beach, specializing in investment properties and rental properties. I am an experienced Business Development Manager with a demonstrated history of working in the hospitality industry. Skilled in Sales, Revenue Analysis, Vacation Rental, Rental Management, and Customer Service.
I have a BA in Mass Communications from the University of South Florida, which I continue to utilize my strong foundation in marketing and public relations as a real estate agent.
I believe in giving back and I’m very passionate about animal rescue. I donate to Alaqua Pet Shelter and ASPCA annually. I continue to offer donations and my time throughout the community for local charities such as Habitat For Humanity, Food for Thought, PAWS, and United Way.
In my spare time, I love being outdoors either running with my dog Batman at the beach or scuba diving one of the cool reefs or wrecks in NWFL, or traveling to a new exotic place. I also love to paint and decorate. I have a really good eye when it comes to art and decor. I love making suggestions to my clients on how they can increase the value of their home or just customize the look of their home by updating to their own style and tastes.
