“Thank you Ginger and Tom for a successful real estate transaction in mid January. You treated us like family and kept our best interests at heart. We wish you continued success in your future endeavors.”
Richard and Gloria DeMenna

We truly appreciate all that you both have done in getting the condo marketed, giving us excellent advice and leading us through the closing.  It is an exemplary lesson in knowledge, action and follow-through.

We wish you both a very Happy New Year,


Faye and Dick

We could not give Ginger & Tom a higher recommendation!  They always gave us an immediate response for any request/question we had regardless of the time of day which was so helpful – especially with us being from out of town!!  Ginger & Tom took care of everything during the entire process.  We would highly recommend anyone to work with them…thank you again for helping us find our perfect Beach Condo!!

Platinum, Ginger and Tom recently handled the sale of my Sandestin condo and I can honestly say that it was the best real estate experience of my life.  Ginger knows the real estate market in the Sandestin, Miramar Beach, and Santa Rosa Beach communities better than anyone I’ve met and transfers her knowledge, contacts, and experience into a seamless and positive experience for her clients.  Ginger’s recommendations regarding pricing, strategy, and negotiation were all on point, further demonstrating her skill in finding and securing qualified buyers.  Tom Wallin, who administrated the sale, provided a constant stream of communication with me during the sales process so I never felt out of the loop.  His timely follow up for all of my questions was immediate, thorough, and professional which is extremely important when you are a remote owner, as I am, trying to navigate a sale in a real estate market that is 1,150 miles away.  In addition, Tom handled several logistical items during the closing that would have been difficult for me to resolve without being on site.  His patience, experience and positive attitude in handling these matters took this burden off my shoulders and insured a timely and complete closure of the deal.  Platinum also handled the property management for the property and after owning several other properties along the Emerald Coast during the past decade, I can say without hesitation that Platinum is the best property management company that I have dealt with.  Catheren Shirah is the most skilled property manager I’ve worked with and uses her talent for multi-tasking to the full benefit of her clients.  I highly recommend Platinum, Ginger, Tom, and Catheren to anyone buying, selling, or renting resort property in the Emerald Coast area.  They are the best I’ve seen, and I would repeat my experience with them without reservation.

I appreciate all of the time , effort, and patience that Ginger, Tom & team spent on selling my home. COVID couldn’t even stop them!

Thank you, Amanda Golden

We first met Ginger around 2010 when we purchased our first unit at Beachside One. She was kind, caring, and helpful. When we decided to upgrade and sell it, we did not hesitate to call Ginger to list it. She showed the unit quite often and gave us a lot of advice. Once it sold, we again used Ginger in 2020 to purchase another unit at Southwinds Ill, which we love. She was available 7 days a week to assist us in our transactions. We highly recommend Ginger for her honestly and excellent work.

“Whether you are buying, selling or renting, we highly recommend Ginger for your real estate needs. Platinum Services did an excellent job of managing our rental property for years, so when we decided to sell it we wouldn’t have called anyone but Ginger.  She and her team of experts have always been attentive to details and quick to provide any assistance we needed. ”

Ginger I want to thank you, Tom, and the staff at Platinum Realty for the professional and friendly way that you handled the sale of our Tivoli home. Ginger for the handling of the purchase of our home 15 years ago and the friendship shown through the years our family is very grateful. As future possibilities develope we look forward to working with you and your staff again. From someone who has worked with a lot of Real estate firms don’t change a thing because you do it right!

I have been seeing Ginger’s Destin Connection ads for many years.  I knew that’s who I would call should I ever need a good, high producing agent.  Well, I am here to say Ginger did not disappoint!  Ginger Lundsdrom, Tom Wallin and her whole team were absolutely AMAZING!  They were available anytime I needed them from the showings and appointments all the way through our closing.  I could not be more pleased!  Even after the closing they still continue to be of assistance!  I appreciate the referrals, especially not being a local, were super helpful!

My family and I are loving the area!  I will definitely use Ginger again and highly recommend her if you are looking for someone to be in your corner, very timely and a team that gets the job done!

Thank you so very much!

Becky Sousoulas & Family

“Thank you so very much for the superb job you and your staff did handling my most recent real estate transaction in Santa Rosa Beach.  Your suggestions, such as having an inspection done prior to listing, staging the home so it would show better and so professionally handling some challenges prior to closing, made all the difference.  You “got it done!”, and right on schedule.   Thank you again and I would gladly recommend your services to any potential client who needs a previous client’s input prior to listing their property with you. “

We had such a great experience working with Ginger as she listed, advertised, and sold our Sandestin cottage. She is very knowledgeable about the area and also easy to work with. We appreciated that she saw the value in an older property that had not been recently updated. She waited patiently for the right buyer and advised us well. What we most appreciate is that she didn’t push for a quick sale at a low price in order to “move” the property. It was a pleasure working with her and her staff.

Thank you,
Susan Perkinson

We were very pleased with Platinum Realty handling both our Beachwalk sale and our Baytowne Avenue purchase. We highly recommend Ginger as our preferred Realtor.
Thank you,

Frank and Gloria Goletz

Ginger has helped us twice. Once to buy a Southwinds condo and the second time to sell our Tivoli Terrace condo.
Ginger is always professional, cheerful and knowledgeable in all aspects of real estate. She is also ready and willing to answer any questions and is available. We adore her!

Diane Parker

Shirley and I are happy to be a reference for Ginger and Platinum Reality. From the first contact to closing the transaction was complete, smooth and timely. Ginger, you and the others at Platinum answered every question both before and after the sale. For this we are grateful. In fact, we have already referred Ginger to some friends of ours who are considering a purchase in the area. Thanks again for great service.

Todd & Shirley Sanders

Hello, Ginger. Our thanks to you and Tom for your steady guidance toward the sale of our Bayou condo. YOu certainly know the market, plus the best way to present a property and as a result, your valued experience in a fair negotiation was evident.

Ted & Jane Giannoulas

Hi Ginger, Thank you so very much for the sale of our vacation home in Sandestin. We had unsuccessfully tried to sale the home through the Resort, So the MLS , along with your tireless efforts obviously made a difference. It was great to see our property listed on the website , and in the mailings as well. Sharon and I both had the feeling that the condo would move quickly, and it did! Great Job, and thanks again!

Karl Nesmith

Dear Ginger, Just wanted to take a minute to thank you for your help in selling our property at Sandestin. We especially appreciate your professionalism and the fact that you kept in contact with us throughout the listing agreement, and were especially helpful in facilitating all of the extra detail work that enabled us to close. WE have recommended you to several people who are interested in buying or selling Sandestin property, and will most certainly call upon you for help in our next property transaction at Sandestin

Sincerely, Ann and Jim Hicks

Dear Ginger, Just a note to say that we enjoyed working with you on the sale of our home in Sandestin. Everything went well and there were numerous showings in the three months we had it in your hands. We received a fair price, and when there was a glitch over the final price in the end, you resolved it to our complete satisfaction. Best of luck in your new office!

Vince and Eileen Hughes

Dear Ginger, You were absolutely fantastic! Thank you for an outstanding job in selling our Sandestin condo. Brenda and I were amazed by your great customer service, marketing tools, and knowledge of the real estate market, I.e., you predicted the level of interest, timing, and acceptable bids for our condo. As you know, we previously had out property listed with another company On Site at the Resort with zero results, and no one even previewing the condo. Needless to say, your timeliness in finding more than one buyer coupled with the rewarding price was outstanding! We will be looking for a larger place in the future and will be calling upon you because of the great job you did In selling our property. IN the meantime, please use us as a reference.

Sincerely, Ed and Brenda Maples

Dear Ginger, I just closed on the two units in the Village you sold me pre-construction two years ago. Driving back to Bowling Green, KY, I got to thinking about my experience at Sandestin since you represented me with the purchase of my property in Beachside I in September 1995. Time flies, since September 1995 when I retired, you have represented me in the purchase of five properties and the selling of two properties in Sandestin and Jay has become a pro at golf. Seriously, I just wanted to thank you for all the times you have helped me with problems at Sandestin and in my transition to Florida. I know that many times I have called you , both day and night, when you must have thought our deal is done, why is he calling me? Your son, Drew, said it best a few years ago: “ My mother works all the time.” Ginger, Labor day 2002 weekend will be my 7th anniversary of my experience at Sandestin. I cannot thank you enough for all you and Jay have done for Brenda and me.

With Love and Thanks, Ben O. Spickard

Ginger, We’ve purchased three units from Ginger, including a Beachside unit in May 1997, which we sold with Ginger’s help in June 2004. We sold it in two days for more than 98% of our asking price. We wouldn’t think of using anyone else in the Destin area. Ginger does what she says she will do when she says she will do it…and always with a smile. She’s extremely knowledgeable and very professional, and it comes as no surprise that she has a super support staff. All our calls were answered promptly and everyone knew who we were and the property we were asking about. It was really nice to not be just another name or number. And it was apparent Ginger hired very good people and trained them well. It’s obvious Ginger has some old fashioned ideas about how to provide service to her clients, which makes it great for anyone who chooses to do business with her!

Judy and Ross Puskar

Dear Ginger, Thank You! We love our new home at Sandestin! You worked very hard to settle all the issues regarding our purchase. We know that it took your personally working most of the weekend to close our deal, but we very much appreciate it!
