ResortQuest Real Estate has announce that John O. "Skip" Valliant is now working at the firm’s West Fenwick location on Route 54, adjacent to Food Lion.
Valliant started his real estate career in the 1970s with English Realty, Anderson & Stokes and then became president of Central Reservations Inc. in Ocean City, Md. In 1986, he opened Bethany Beach's Seacoast Realty, which quickly became a leader in resort area real estate sales and rentals with offices in Dagsboro, Ocean View and Bethany Beach. Valliant sold the company to Carl M. Freeman Associates in 2004, and in 2008 Seacoast became part of ResortQuest Real Estate. Valliant has remained active with the company through the acquisitions and is now part of the ResortQuest Real Estate team.
Valliant will focus on farms, commercial, development and investment real estate in Delaware and Maryland, as well as listing and selling general brokerage real estate. Valliant has been a real estate consultant for Sussex County Council, the City of Rehoboth Beach and the Town of Millsboro. He was the developer of Salt Meadows Townhomes in Fenwick Island, and also put together the land acquisition package for the development now known as Bayside, off Route 54 west of Fenwick Island.
“We are very happy that Skip will be associated with our West Fenwick office,” said Brigit Taylor, ResortQuest’s managing broker. “Skip's extensive knowledge of real estate in our market area will make him a great addition to our West Fenwick office.”
Valliant is an active member of the Sussex County Association of Realtors, the Delaware Association of Realtors and the National Association of Realtors, as well as the Coastal Association of Realtors and the Maryland Association of Realtors. Valliant has served on numerous local, state and national Realtor committees and was named Sussex County Association of Realtors' Realtor of the Year in 1993 and Delaware Realtor of the Year in 1995. Valliant is a member of Delaware Masonic Lodge No. 37 in Dagsboro, Fenwick Island Lions Club and Mariner's Bethel United Methodist Church. He has also served on Gov. Tom Carper’s Advisory Council on Game and Fish.
