How it Started
As services commander in the Air Force, Reggie Johns has been a successful leader, father, and entrepreneur. Since starting his career in real estate, Reggie has continued to establish relationships with his clients, built on a foundation of honesty and integrity.
A “true native” with an energetic spirit and love of the “World’s Most Beautiful Beaches”, Reggie’s primary objective for Book That Condo is for both owners and tenants to have a rewarding experience. After years of experience in condo realty and rental management, Reggie Johns decided it was time to change the way condo rental management companies operated.
Reggie started Book that Condo from home, managing several properties and housing in upwards of seventy BP contractors during the Deep Water Horizon Oil Spill. Soon the operation flourished and his vision a reality. Book That Condo is continuing to grow exponentially and stay ahead of the curve in condo management.
