River Run - A beautiful place to live your beach and boating dream!



RIVER RUN is a unique community across the street from the beach at the Eastern edge of Orange Beach.  It is one of the coolest places to live in Orange Beach because offers the best of SEVERAL  worlds!

1.  Boating:  Every home comes with a dedicated boatslip on Ole River.  Put in a lift if you like, or see if you can catch one of the larger slips, suitable for really large boats.  Want to pull your boat out? No problem! There is a PRIVATE ramp secured for owner use only!

2. Swimming: Large private pool with cabana and extra parking. Enjoy swimming in a pristine, well-maintained private pool.

3. Beaching:  River Run is located right across the street from the beach - just minutes from a quick walk or drive (if you have a lot of beach gear) to the sugary white sands of Orange Beach.

4. Privacy:   River Run is gated - and rentals are restricted to a 1 month minimum.   With only 28 lots in the subdivision, you are free from crowds even during the busiest time of the season. Beach views from your balcony, boat dock and pool just steps away - no elevators, no crowds.

5. Playing Tourist! - Savor you're privacy, but if you want to taste a little of the tourist life, you can easily WALK to the world-famous FLORA-BAMA, and to acclaimed restaurants like the Flora-Bama Yacht Club.  If you want to explore a bit further, it's only a brief taxi or auto ride to The Wharf, Perdido Key Oyster Bar, Fisher's Orange Beach, Big Fish, Cosmo's, Fisherman's Corner on Perdido Key and more.

6. Great Schools:  Claim River Run as your primary home and enroll your children in the brand new, top notch Orange Beach schools.

7. Affordability:  Fees are low (under $3000 a year) and pricing in River Run is very competitive compared to other waterfront properties.  Give me a call and let's talk about what is currently available.  Also - check out the links below!

Gulf Coast Leigh: Live the Lost Key Lifestyle

Gulf Coast Leigh: Live the Lost Key Lifestyle

Relocating? Count on a professional!

ONE YEAR AGO a client of mine saw her dream come true.
 She  drove in  from her former home in Texas to start her new life as a resident of Orange Beach, Alabama.  The closer we got to closing day, the more excited she became.  Now she is celebrating her first year as a bona fide local beach bum!

Kim found me via her Dallas-area Realtor, who advised her on selling her townhome there. Her agent, Denise, did her research and discovered that my team and I not only worked selling beach and vacation homes, but also specialized in residential relocation.

So what kind of services does a relocation expert provide?

I started with a phone interview with Kim.
Kim has always dreamed of living at the beach.   She works from home, so local employment was not a challenge for her.
Kim was leaving a townhouse.  She wanted more privacy in her new home, so we focused on single family homes.  Her price point did not initially allow for her to purchase on the beach, so we started our search in surrounding communities.  As a single woman, she wasn’t interested in a “fixer upper.”
New to the Gulf Coast, she had to learn about homeowner issues unique to our coast:  Insurance isn’t cheap, and our salt air takes a toll on heating and cooling systems.

Even after offers  on 2 homes that didn’t come to fruition, Kim was determined to move to the coast.

She shipped her furniture to a climate controlled storage facility, and I met the movers there to be sure her belongings arrived securely.  On her next trip,  we found the perfect spot for her: A new home (from a national builder) in a prime location in Orange Beach, just minutes from the beach!

Our timing was perfect, and we were able to get Kim the new home (complete with builder’s warranty AND Gold Certification, which greatly reduced her insurance costs) at a price she was comfortable with. Kim now enjoys daily beach walks, and lots of sand, sea, and sunshine.

Contact us- we can help you relocate to Paradise, too.
