Chris Abbott
Sales | Real Estate Broker

My family first discovered the Gulf Coast in the early 1950's, and has been living here enjoying it ever since. I am a third generation of Abbott Realtors in this area, and although times have definitely changed since the inception of the Abbott real estate business, the founding principles that guide me are tried and true - customer service, knowledge, hard work and dedication.

I found these principles also practiced at Destin Real Estate Company, a boutique luxury real estate brokerage on the Emerald Coast. I moved my business there in 2010, partnered with Blake Morar in 2013 becoming a co-owner of the company, then affiliated with Sotheby's International Realty in 2014. I have lived, worked and loved Florida's Gulf Coast for over 35 years and look forward to assisting you in finding your dream location on the beach.


In 1989 Chancey Design began building a reputation based on the concept of service and design excellence. It was a formula that resulted in tremendous client satisfaction and it helped us to become one of the most respected architecture and interior design firms in the Southeast.

Chancey Design specializes in residential architecture from custom single family homes to multi-story condominiums. Experience, expertise and quality reflect our projects.

The way we do business at Chancey Design is a reflection of our four core values that define our company culture: Creativity, Dedication, Passion and Fun. At Chancey Design, we help our clients think more deeply about the personal architecture and interior design they are planning on bringing into the world. We help to envision that design and then we help them realize their dream.
