Ron Hefner began his career in 2010, at a time most were not interested in entering the real estate profession. His entry into the industry was an unusual one. He helped diffuse a tense situation at a local restaurant which prompted a conversation with a bystander, who offered him a job if he would acquire his real estate license. Nine years later, the two are still close friends.
Ron, who earned a degree in marketing and finance from the University of Wisconsin, is a two-time winner of the brokerage’s “Buyer’s Agent of the Year” award, and recipient of the “Extraordinary for Excellence” given to agents with more than $15 million in sales volume annually, in 2018, 2019 and 2020.
Since becoming a realtor, Ron has helped more than 350 clients buy or sell a home on the Emerald Coast. He credits his success to the skills he has learned throughout his upbringing and career, including treating every single person he meets equally and with respect, always doing the right thing and working harder than his competition. He truly believes that the right agent should be able
to shoulder both the large and small details of the transaction, freeing the client to attend to other matters, while leading them to a seamless, successful closing. His local expertise, combined with the global reach of the Sotheby’s International Realty brand and the collaboration of its agents, help him best serve his customers across the street or around the world.
In his free time, Ron enjoys the beach and all it has to offer with his wife, Bailey, their son, Boone, and their Border Collie. He enjoys paddle boarding, biking, playing soccer and fishing. He also loves to travel, enjoying a six-month backpacking excursion through Central and South America for the couple’s honeymoon.
