The Market Shops Welcomes Edward Jones to Tenant Mix

The Market Shops, located at the entrance to Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort, welcomes Edward Jones, a leading financial services firm and FORTUNE 500 company, to the shopping center.

Edward Jones provides financial services for individual investors in the United States and, through its affiliate, in Canada. Originally founded in 1922, the firm has maintained the same philosophy throughout the years emphasizing quality and a well-balanced portfolio, while also fostering an environment that greatly values personal relationships. Worldwide, the firm has more than 18,700 financial advisors who care for more than seven million clients with more than $1.3 trillion in assets under care.

“We are excited to add a strong national brand in Edward Jones to the tenant mix at The Market Shops,” said Rob Duncan, Vice President of CenterCore Properties. “The addition of Edward Jones continues our expansion of the shopping center’s attractive mix of retail, dining, and entertainment options and professional services available to our visitors and locals.”

John Stevenson, a local financial advisor who has worked for Star Real Estate, Wells Fargo, Merrill Lynch, and the St. Joe Company, is the sole financial advisor for the new, 1,640-square foot Market Shops location of Edward Jones. After being with the company since 2017, Stevenson decided to move his office from Santa Rosa Beach, Fla. to The Market Shops in order to better serve Miramar Beach and the surrounding communities. Based upon his own goals and the Edward Jones’ founding principles, Stevenson strives to help individual investors and business owners develop an investment strategy geared toward their unique, long-term goals while also providing the highest quality of customer service.

“With all of my clients, I want to listen and understand what is most important to them, follow an established process, and then customize financial strategies to help them achieve their overall goals,” Stevenson said. “That is what drives each day in order for my clients and their families to live their lives in the best possible way they can.”
