Chantel first visited the Forgotten Coast of Florida as an undergraduate research student in Geology and fell in love with the coastal treasure that is Franklin County. Upon graduation she accepted a position at the Florida Geological Survey in Tallahassee and after three rewarding years working there, she and her husband bought their first home on St. George Island where they now live, work and play with their two dogs and two cats.
Her first year on St. George Island was spent as a kayak guide and paddle board instructor at Journeys of St. George Island, where she had the opportunity to really get to know the environment and meet a lot of wonderful travelers and local islanders.
In 2015, Chantel began her real estate career on St. George Island and joined Naumann Coastal when it opened its doors in 2016. She is a dedicated, organized, and hardworking realtor who is eager to assist others in achieving their goals in this exciting real estate market. Chantel is readily available for communication with buyers, sellers and other agents in order to facilitate smooth real estate transactions and most of all will do her best to make the experience a great one for her clients.
“What a pleasure it has been working with Chantel to sell our beach house on St. George Island, closed June 5, 2020! There were many challenges along the way, including a worldwide pandemic that resulted in the suspension of rentals on the Island, a situation that could easily have frightened many a nervous buyer. She was always available to us with sound advice and practical suggestions, as well as a detailed knowledge of the Island real estate market that was invaluable in readying the house for listing and working with potential buyers in uncertain times. She followed through and got things done, and it made a big difference having her on our team. And finally, she was always sensitive to the fact that our house was a family home for 40 years, and parting with it was bittersweet. Thank you again, Chantel, for your energy and expertise.” - The Beman Family
