A Love Letter to 30-A

Celebrating Twenty-Five Years in Real Estate

Some places change you, whether it’s after one visit or a permanent move. In real estate broker Linda Miller’s case, it was both. Over three decades ago, she visited the quaint coastal communities along Scenic Highway 30-A in Northwest Florida and fell in love. It seemed destined that she would live there, somewhere just off the little two-lane road she nicknamed “The Smile” for its curved shape where it meets Highway 98 on the eastern end. That stretch of designated Scenic Highway has grown tremendously since then, and Miller’s love has expanded along with it.

As she celebrates her twenty-fifth anniversary in the real estate business, Miller and her team are also approaching the fifth anniversary of her boutique luxury brokerage, Linda Miller Real Estate, in 2024. Her exuberance and love for helping people find their dream beach properties have perpetuated Miller’s moniker as “The Smile of 30-A.” To thank all of her clients and supporters as she celebrates these career milestones, Miller has also penned a love letter to 30-A itself, a poignant homage that undoubtedly speaks to many who have made their homes and careers in the area:

Dear Scenic Highway 30-A,

Thank you for the best twenty-five years of my life! I’m so excited to celebrate this career milestone and to continue making my clients’ dreams come true along your beautiful beaches.

Thank you for the eighteen miles of two-lane road parallel to pristine white sands, where people drive thirty-five miles per hour, slow down, and breathe in the peace of “paradise.”

Thank you for all the happy memories you have helped me make here with my parents, children, and grandchildren. My daddy even got his real estate license here at age eighty.

Every client I have and will continue to serve, every dream home found, I owe to you.

Thank you, Seaside, for teaching me about New Urbanism after I fell in love with your quaint little post office thirty-five years ago. I’ve learned much about traditional neighborhoods and their value in the real estate community. How lucky we are to live among such great architecture!

Thank you for all the fun events, from Seaside’s July Fourth parade (a perfect venue for the Twirling American Beauties) to Sinfonia concerts, REP performances, CAA festivals, DCWAF fund-raisers, CVHN’s Soiree on the Bay, and so much more.

Through the years, you have taught me the value of community. I am so thankful for the friendships formed as our community met the needs of others through world-class nonprofits, like Children’s Volunteer Health Network, Food for Thought, Sinfonia Gulf Coast, and Alaqua Animal Refuge, to name a few.

As we embrace the future together, 30-A, I want to express my gratitude to you for being the foundation of my success and growth. Every client I have and will continue to serve, every dream home found, I owe to you. You have my heart and make me smile!

With boundless love,

Linda Miller

The Smile of 30-A

Congratulations, Linda!
