The well-known popular restaurant and sports ale bar in Crestview, Florida, at 1025 Industrial Dr is now available for purchase! Many wealthy people have been making the wondrous Emerald Coast their primary place to live over the past couple of years which is not surprising. A growing number of individuals are reaching a time in their lives when it’s time to invest in a future of happiness. Many invest in vacation rental properties that can provide regular monthly income while owning a place that continually rises in value with ever-increasing equity.
Our highly established and well-respected Ocean Reef Resorts property management division represents hundreds of vacation rentals, providing lucrative extra income to fortunate private owners from Destin to Panama City Beach. However, some others are also interested in both a business opportunity and a real estate purchase. These entrepreneurs are looking for real estate to purchase that can dovetail with other income-producing business investments for active management. The sale of Johnny O’ Quigley’s Ale House provides a unique opportunity for both.
