Who We Are
Here at the Military Home Team, we are a team of military veteran and spouse real estate agents serving our military community across the Florida Panhandle! We continuously strive to provide as much value and support as possible and put our fellow military families first.
The Military Home Team’s Mission
Our mission is to deliver the ultimate military real estate experience to our Florida Panhandle military community, while putting the financial well being of military members first; in so doing, the Military Home Team seeks to be the the real estate provider of choice for our military community.
Our Core Values
- Provide value without expectations
- Financial well being of clients comes first
- Relationships as our foundation
- Be the servicemember’s advocate
Charlie Cameron – an Air Force veteran – founded the Military Home Team in late 2022, after seeing the need for a uniquely tailored real estate experience FOR military BY military along the Florida Panhandle’s Emerald Coast. This need became apparent after already serving many military PCS buyers and sellers and understanding their concerns, and by engaging with our very own Panhandle PCS Facebook community of military members and spouses.
The team – which is made up ONLY of military veterans and military spouses – quickly grew to out of the necessity to serve our military clients where we serve them!
We currently serve the Florida Panhandle from Pensacola to Panama City, and everything in-between, to include these bases and units:
- Eglin Air Force Base (to which Charlie completed his active duty service at)
- Hurlburt Field
- Tyndall Air Force Base
- Naval Air Station Pensacola
- Naval Air Station Whiting Field
- Duke Field and the 7th Special Forces Group
- Explosive Ordinance (EOD) School
We LOVE serving our military community because we ARE part of that community. We know the PCS struggles, we know the military family life, and we know real estate. We love the satisfaction of helping military families like ourselves succeed in finding the perfect home and selling their home – and usually – to another military family!
Since Charlie started in real estate sales in 2019, we’ve NEVER failed to get a military member/family into a home if they wanted to buy, and we’ve never failed to sell their home for their PCS. We take great pride in our work and in who we serve.
We also bring another unique benefit to our clients: an investor perspective. Charlie Cameron, our fearless leader, is a seasoned real estate investor: single family rentals, short term rentals, multifamily, assisted living, & more! Our team thinks differently about real estate. This presents a number of advantages, including having a keen eye for showings as well as helping military members find homes that can be great rentals after their PCS to help build long term wealth!

Before long he found he had a MAJOR passion for helping military families like his own succeed in real estate! Charlie left active duty after 11 years to lead the Military Home Team and fill a critical gap along the Florida Panhandle: a military real estate team that puts military first, ALWAYS. He looks forward every day to helping as many military members and families succeed as possible!
