Life’s a Beach Real Estate LLC was established in 2003, and Woody leads business development for the company in the fast-growing region of the Florida panhandle. Strategically expanding his real estate presence from a single office in Destin to locations in four prominent beach resorts, more than tripled his business in less than three years and enabled the dream of oceanfront property ownership for thousands of residents and investors.
While Woody’s experience in commercial and residential real estate management spans more than 28 years, his entrepreneurial spirit has propelled him into leadership roles in several industries. Most recently, he served as President and Board Member at Go Epic Health, an organic nutritional company, where he led the go-to-market strategy, including sales strategy and placement in local and national retailers, for several products.
Prior to his role at Go Epic Health, Woody spent many years in the financial services industry as founder of Strategic Equity Group, a management consultant company that identified, incubated, and grew early-stage-revenue companies. He also held leadership roles in investor relations firms where he focused on investment banking and private equity. Additionally, Woody founded the Business Exchange, a business brokerage that helped connect business owners with buyers. In this time, he held a FINRA Series 7 license as well as the Series 63 license.
Previously, Woody held a mortgage broker license while owning his own mortgage company in the state that included a commercial lending company as well.
Currently, Woody is a licensed real estate broker in Florida. He also serves on the board of Grand Panama Beach Resort, located in Panama City Beach, FL, where Woody lives with his wife and rescue pup, Buddy. He is the proud father of four children and enjoys golf, cooking on the grill, and fitness.

“My husband Bill and I closed on a condo at Edgewater Beach Resort. The listing agent was Woody Junot at Life’s A Beach Realty. We viewed the property only 10 days earlier and were very pleased with the efficient way Woody put together the closing. He had a list of inspectors and a title company working as soon as we put a deposit on the property management company he works with to manage our rental. I would highly recommend Wooddy and Life’s a Beach Realty for all your NW Florida beach real estate needs!” – Carol and Bill
“Pete & I have enjoyed many years of both friendship and professional association with Woody Junot! He’s a kind, caring person who looks out for others. We appreciate his help in selling some of our condos at Grand Panama. We will continue to be original owners as we’ve been there since the very beginning and look forward to many years of enjoyment with our favorite condo at GP. We met Woody through Marc Nolin, who was instrumental in developing our beautiful property in Panama City Beach. If you haven’t met Woody, stop by the office at the bottom of tower two at Life’s A Beach Real Estate. We look forward to seeing you at the beach!!” – Pete & Barbara Morreale
