What Are Recent Buyers and Sellers Saying About Our Team?

"Conna helped us to purchase and sell our unit at Portofino. To sell our condo in Pensacola Beach with a competitive market was certainly a concern for us. However, Friendly, knowledgeable and always available staff of Conna O’Donovan helped us to understand and adjust the decor asking price to an  appealing realistic selling level. We highly recommend Conna O’Donovan Real Estate If you are serious about selling or buying real estate."

"Great experience with great outcome.  Conna was always professional; as we were out of town sellers, she kept us informed, gave inputs on all showings in a weekly e-mail.  Attentive with frequent phone contact, we felt comfortable that she was doing her best for us. She sold our house quickly, with minimal negotiation."

Gardening in Santa Rosa County – JUNE 
(For more info on other plants: Solutions for Your Life)


  • Flowers

  • Annuals to plant include celosia, coleus, crossandra, hollyhock, impatiens, kalanchoe, nicotiana, ornamental pepper, portulaca, salvia, torenia, vinca and zinnia.
  • Sow seeds of sunflowers.  They are easy to grow if you have a sunny spot.  Look for some of the new, dwarf varieties that can also be used as cut flowers.
  • Remove old blooms (deadheading) to make flowers bloom longer.
  • Allow foliage on spring bulbs to grow.  Do not cut it off until it turns yellow & falls over.
