Clayton Bonjean works with both buyers and sellers of Destin, Sandestin, 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
I would highly recommend Clayton if you are looking to purchase a home or condo. By far the best realtor I have ever used. He has a great laid back personality but don't let that fool you. Clayton is very knowledgeable, walked us through ever step in the process and has a good support staff.

Can’t say enough great things about Clayton and his team. He helped us purchase our first vacation home in Seacrest while living 7 hours away. He has always been completely honest and given us his true opinion of a home condition, rental opportunities, and price. Not only have we used Clayton to purchase a home, he has also helped us in selling as well. Love this guy and highly recommend!

Clayton was very professional and awesome to work with! He was honest, not pushy and we appreciated that! We will be using him again.
Clayton Bonjean is a an outstanding real estate professional. We purchased our first home in Miramar Beach from Clayton in 2014. We flew in from out of State and he worked with us for several days until we found the perfect home for us. Clayton knows the market really well, but more important, Clayton is a great listener and did a great job of finding exactly what we wanted. After Hurricane Michael, Clayton told us he would check on our home in Sandestin, because we were worried about it from thousands of miles away. We didn't ask him to, but Clayton made a video of our home so we could see that it was ok. Who does that? Clayton, that's who. After 5 years our needs changed and we contacted Clayton to sell our home. This time we were on the other side of the table, asking him to find a buyer for us. Clayton went the extra mile several times. He met with the Sandestin Owners Association to solve a problem for us. He worked with two contractors for us, and checked their work since we were out of town. When things did not go the way we had hoped in one instance, he met with the contractor and made sure the work was done correctly. Then he found a buyer for our home and was able to get a great price for it. After selling our home, we flew in again to look at another home, and Clayton was able to find us a new build home in Watersound Origins that once again we are in love with. We cannot say enough about Clayton Bonjean and his organization Mainsail Realty. His assistant Ginny is very efficient, helping us at every point in the contract process to know what we need to do next. One thing I have learned over the years of buying and selling real estate is that the amount of money you pay for just about every real estate agent is pretty much the same, but the quality of the agents vary greatly. If you want the best of the best, who will make your selling or purchasing experience the best it can be, ask for Clayton and his team at Mainsail to assist you in your most important purchase. Clayton made our dreams come true. We consider Clayton more than our real estate advisor, we consider him a trusted friend.
Clayton has a wealth of knowledge and is a true professional. He has a great understanding of the market and of the industry as a whole. He helped us buy a home in the Santa Rosa Beach area, and he was able to help us see all the positives and negatives in comparable locations. He gave us plenty of options to consider, and even gave us outside the box ideas to help guide us to what we really wanted. Lastly, he has a great amount of connections to help you as a home buyer/seller, to make it easy to get things done quickly - thus going to him first has helped yield great results in areas even outside the initial buying of our home.

Clayton - Thank you for your assistance in locating and purchasing our home in Rosemary Beach. 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!"
"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?"
"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."

"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 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."
