When Valerie Hawkins first visited the beautiful island of Perdido Key, FL, it was love at first sight. Originally a social worker in Savannah, Georgia, Valerie moved to Perdido Key to be with her husband. In 1984, she became a licensed Florida real estate agent in order to share this paradise with others. At the same time, Valerie also founded Dirtbusters Resort Cleaning service, which she grew to 250 units and 40 employees before selling ten years later.
