The Gulf Coast has been our family’s favorite vacation destination for many years. In April of 2016, we were able to realize our dream and retire to Gulf Shores. It is a move we have yet to regret. Our son, Josh, spent many enjoyable days swimming in the warm Gulf waters. He was married on the beach and now brings his six kids down to visit whenever possible.

Prior to moving to Gulf Shores, Beth and I lived our entire lives in small towns in Missouri. The first half of my working life was spent as a teacher and coach. In 1990, we established Burch Insurance with locations in Houston and Springfield, Missouri. The agencies were sold in January of 2016, and four months later, we packed up our belongings and headed south. I left my snow shovel behind as I will not be needing it any more.

Leaving family and friends behind is never an easy thing to do. One of the best things about the Gulf Coast is the people you meet. Since almost everyone here has migrated to the area, they realize what an adjustment it is and go out of their way to make newcomers feel welcome.

There is so much to do down here. Fishing, boating, tennis, golf, biking, gardening, collecting shells, great music, excellent places to eat; the list is long and the best part is that most outdoor activities are available year round. The Alabama Gulf coast has something for everyone.

I have always had a keen interest in real estate as most of my family has worked in the construction industry. Over the years, Beth and I have marveled at the growth in South Baldwin County. People all over the country have heard of Gulf Shores and Orange Beach and many dream of moving here. This area has much to offer as it continues to grow and prosper.

The best part of being in the real estate business is the look on people’s faces when they first see the place they’ve been searching for. It’s a thrill for me to be a part of someone finding a house that they can make their home. Please contact me when you’re ready to find your dream home.

Best Regards,
