This Destin Realtor Is An HGTV Celeb
The fact of the matter is her parents had never even heard of Destin when they named her. RE/MAX Southern Realty Realtor Destin Lowry not only shares her namesake with the city, but is also making it famous. And it all happened by chance.
Maybe youâ€™ve heard of HGTVâ€™s hit show House Hunters. Each week, a new couple from across the country is shown three prospective homes and with the help of a local realtor, they choose the perfect home to suit their wish-lists.
In 2013, HGTV brought House Hunters to the Emerald Coast, and of course, Lowryâ€™s first name caught the producerâ€™s attention. Television producers love few things more than irony and a play-on-words. They were surprised to learn Lowryâ€™s parents, who are from Albertville, Alabama, had no connection to â€śthe worldâ€™s luckiest fishing villageâ€ť when they named her.
Nonetheless, Lowery made her way South to attend Florida State University. Following graduation, she ended up in Destin, and the rest, as they say, is history. She has sold real estate in Destin for nearly twenty years, and is a multi-million dollar producer. She even received RE/Max Southernâ€™s Lifetime Achievement Award and Hall of Fame Award.
Lowry has gone on to film six episodes with HGTVâ€™s House Hunters. Four of the episodes have already aired, including â€śWanting It All in Destin, Florida,â€ť Â â€śAir Force Couple Searches for New Home in Destin, Florida,â€ť â€śDestined for Destin,â€ť and â€śCouple Hunts for Beach Vacation Home on Floridaâ€™s Gulf Coast.â€ť
The latest episodes are scheduled to air in April and May. â€śTo Pool or Not to Pool in Destin, FLâ€ť will air Monday, April 24 at 11 a.m./CST. â€śBuying a Vacation Home in Destin, FL,â€ť will air Monday, May 22 at 4:30 p.m./CST.
