Testimonials / Reviews - Clayton Bonjean, Mainsail Realty Company
Clayton Bonjean works with both buyers and sellers of Destin, Sandestin, Hwy 30A and Santa Rosa Beach, FL Real Estate. Many agents coin themselves as either a buyer's agent or a listing agent. Clayton has over 2000 buyers in his data base and his listing clients appreciate the fact that Clayton may actually sell their home. He will not just list it and wait for another agent to bring him an offer. On the other hand, Clayton's buyer clients enjoy the benefit of having an agent that carries a good listing inventory. It really is a win win for all parties. Give Clayton a call at 850-585-1284 or email him at BrokerClayton@gmail.com
"All of the testimonials below are genuine. These are all actual clients and most did not know me prior to purchasing or selling their homes. The majority of them found me on the internet just like you." Clayton Bonjean
Clayton - Thank you for your assistance in locating and purchasing our last two properties in Florida. We have purchased and sold many properties over the years and you and your staff (especially Ginny), from start to finish, were professional, knowledgeable, attentive, and always available. These qualities are rare and greatly appreciated.

"We feel that Clayton is hands down one of the best realtors in the Destin and Santa Rosa Beach areas. With his extensive knowledge of the 30-A real estate market, Clayton helped us define the true value of the property we had in our sights. Within 5 hours of initially contacting him and discussing our interest in a certain property, we received an email from him which contained extensive videos and pictures of the subject property. We had an executed purchase agreement contract in place within 2 days after negotiations with the sellers had begun.
Not only did he help expedite the negotiation process, but his team at Mainsail Realty also helped set up all the property inspections, and provided us a list of qualified and vetted mortgage brokers and insurance agents who helped make our closing seamless and as worry free as possible. As luck would have it, we were fortunate enough to be able close within 21 days after the sales contract was initiated, and Clayton was the first person to greet us at closing with a wonderful wine & cheese gift basket so we could celebrate on our first evening at our new vacation home in style. It truly was a pleasure to be able to work with such good person who always had our best interest in mind, and we look forward to working with him on our next home and seeing him along the beaches of 30-A well into the future."

"Clayton helped us sell our 2nd home in Santa Rosa Beach Florida. He was professional, courteous and communicated with us regularly about the status of the sale. We would highly recommend Clayton to anyone looking to place their home on the market, especially in this market!"
"Without a doubt, Clayton Bonjean is the finest realtor we have ever worked with. We worked with Clayton for over a year trying to find the perfect vacation home. Clayton went out of his way to help us the entire time. Personal tours, phone consultations, emails, texts, and videos – there was no length he would not go to keep us updated on homes as they became available. His experience and eye for quality meant that we trusted and valued his opinions without reservation. His honest and knowledgeable assessments of homes gave us the information we needed to make informed decisions even though we were 500 miles away. Closing the deal was the easiest part of the process; Clayton took care of every detail involved. We will always be grateful to Clayton for helping our family find our dream vacation home, and highly recommend him to others."

"Dealing with Clayton was a wonderful experience, we are from out of town and needed a lot of help from lending, maintenance, locks, insurance. You name it and Clayton knows somebody to to help. When we upgrade, Clayton will be who we call."
"My husband and I are on our third buy/sell agreement in just a year with Clayton Bonjean so I feel very qualified in recommending him as a real estate agent in the Destin area. Not only is Clayton a "high octane", high energy agent but he genuinely cares about his clients individually. With Clayton it is not just the business of the sale, he makes sure to point out the negatives of a property as well as the positives, such as warning us about the lack of strength that an HOA may have. Clayton even went to the trouble to make a list of the utility companies with their phone numbers but he even included painters, decorators and even insurance agents. Very helpful when you are new in town."

"Clayton, has done a great job. Good properties at great prices. That is why I am a repeat customer, that says it all, not 1 sale, but do they come back, again and again? I do, how about you?"
RJ Texas (a TCU man).
"Our experience using Clayton’s services was exceptional. Clayton patiently worked with us, staying in touch without being invasive while we vacillated back and forth on buying a property and then which property. Clayton exhibited genuine interest and desire to make sure our needs and expectations were exceeded while at the same time developing a genuine rapport and friendship with us during the process. After the sale was completed, Clayton stayed in touch and has been a terrific resource when we have needed help during the furnishing of the property and with other resources. We have recommended Clayton to several of our friends (something we virtually never do) and would use his services again without reservation."

“Clayton, we want to express our sincere appreciation for your outstanding effort in getting our house to closing during an extremely difficult climate. I know you had many other clients to juggle; however, the service we received made it look like we were special."
Charles & Jeanette Mares
"I began working with Clayton Bonjean in the Summer of 2009 when I first started looking for a vacation home. Since that time, I have purchased two Sandestin Baytowne Wharf Condominiums. Clayton understood what I was looking for targeting on location and price. Clayton has great insight into the Real Estate market along the coast and gave me an overview of the area from beach to bay. The most important benefit of working with Clayton is his easy going personality. I can personally recommend Clayton Bonjean, my Real Estate Broker."
Frank Garavelli, Memphis, TN
“Clayton, I'm writing to sincerely thank you for all your support and hard work through our extremely successful short sale. When we contacted you, we were not very familiar with the short sale process and were uncertain if a short sale was even possible for us. You explained the process to us in detail, clearly outlining our options, risks and potential benefits. We particularly appreciate your patience, honesty and willingness to spend time helping us through that education process, never pressuring us in the least.
Once we made the decision to list our property with Mainsail, you continued to guide us through the process step by step. The service we received from you and your team at Mainsail could not have been better. It was prompt, professional and extremely well informed. Your systems allowed us to easily process everything remotely.
You always remained positive, even during those unexpected set backs. I'm still amazed that you got that late stage surprise issue resolved in time to hit our closing date. Your persistent yet delicate interactions with the lender may very well have been the key to our success.
I don't know if you ever get requests for references, but if so please consider having them contact me. We feel so fortunate to have found you and your team at Mainsail to help us sale our property.
Please share our testimonial with anyone looking for real estate services...we certainly are!

"Clayton and the whole Mainsail Realty Company go beyond helping the client side of things. I learned a ton from them during a Buying process 3 years ago to a Selling process just 3-4 weeks ago. They made everything smooth and very nice with Digital Signatures. I really like that with the new technology. :) Clayton, himself, is a real stand up guy that has the energy to get things done and help you along the way. He even went out of his way to help me on some house issues that needed fixing. In no way was he obligated to do so, but he did and I can't thank Clayton enough for that.
If I ever decide to buy another house in the Destin/Miramar Beach area, I will use Mainsail Realty Company without even thinking about it.
To anyone looking for a home in the area, please, I say again...Please give Mainsail Realty a call and talk to Clayton. You will not regret it."
"Clayton sold two properties for me in a very difficult market. It was a great experience. He listened to my concerns and was extremely responsive to my needs. One property sold at the highest price per square foot in the neighborhood, and we made multiple counters through the entire process, getting what I believe was the top dollar that we could have achieved. On the other property, it took a while (due to the market), but Clayton provided excellent feedback and communication through the process. Whether buying or selling, I whole heartedly recommend Clayton to anyone."
"Clayton Bonjean has played an integral part in facilitating the progress of our real estate transactions over the last 2 years. He is always quick to respond to our questions and concerns, and he is very knowledgeable about the local markets as well as real estate matters in general. Clayton was able to accomplish a very quick short sale of our residential property, and was able to negotiate with our mortgage company on our behalf, thus alleviating most, if not all, of the usual pressures of such a transaction on a seller. We are thoroughly satisfied with Clayton's service and attention, and we will recommend his expertise to anyone we know of in need of real estate services."
