Just found out that Truman (our 30A “Sand Rover” and official mascot) and some of our best buddies are featured in the new issue of Rovers Magazine. With over 27 years under their hood (just about as many as Truman!), Rovers Magazine is the largest Land Rover publication in North America. Sincere thanks to our local friends Mike Whitty, Bridgette Mitchell, Louis Petit, Kasie Petit, Shannon Johnson and Ashley Johnson for helping us out during that very fun day of shooting, and special thanks to 30A photographer Dawn Chapman Whitty for capturing some truly special moments and images!

Danny and Arlene Margagliano

After a year and a half of intense rehabilitation following a freak diving accident, Miramar Beach resident and realtor Danny Margagliano is marking his return to the local real estate scene with a new business partner. Margagliano’s mother Arlene Margagliano has joined his Destin Property Expert team by way of his long-time affiliation with Keller Williams Emerald Coast (Team Baranowski).

“I’m ecstatic to be returning to the workplace after such a profound life-changing accident,” said Danny. “Our local community has pulled together so much to show their love and support to me and my family. After being on the receiving end for so long, it feels great to be working again and to be able to give back.”

Before the April 14, 2012 accident that shattered his C5 vertebrae leaving him paralyzed, Margagliano was an active SWFD firefighter and paramedic, as well as an avid surfer and fisherman.
