The name Abbott is synonymous with real estate along Florida’s Emerald Coast. The Abbott’s have been making real estate their business since 1950 starting with the original Abbott Realtor, William W. Abbott Sr. In 1970, he became a broker and began selling condominiums at El Matador, one of the first condominiums built in northwest Florida. The Abbott’s were involved with the most premier properties along the Emerald Coast. At the time, El Matador, on Okaloosa Island, was the only building with an elevator within two counties.
