Three years ago, I listed my first rental property with Island Real Estate, since then I have listed an additional three properties with them. There were many reasons why I listed my properties with Island Real Estate. First and foremost, the staff was courteous and professional. They met with me to discuss their services and my expectations. They were all very professional and took a personal interest in getting to know me. Larry played a pivotal part in my selection of Island Real Estate. He provided conservative yearly rental estimates along with countless ideas and suggestions on the rental market. I then used the information he provided to formulate a rental property business plan. I purchased particular properties, which would fit a niche in the island rental market. I am happy to say that Island Real Estate has exceeded the yearly rental income estimates that Larry provided for each property. They continue to exceed my own expectations! Larry and his staff are always seeking new innovations in marketing the properties and continue to maintain an excellent rental website. The website is easy to navigate and very user friendly. The website also provides owner information and reports which are very helpful in evaluating the performance of the property. The rental and maintenance departments work seamlessly together and are absolutely fabulous to work with. I genuinely believe that they treat the renting and upkeep of my properties like their own. Carol and her rental staff are absolutely the best on the Island! They are always cheerful and helpful whenever I have questions or concerns. The maintenance department has continued to evolve since my first listing. They now have taken the cleaning and housekeeping in hose to provide better quality control. This has made a big difference in the upkeep of the properties. The in-house maintenance department is available to respond to any problems or renter concerns 7 days a week. John and his staff are awesome to work with! Finally, as an owner, you are allowed to very active in the management of the property. Island Real Estate is always willing to discuss and listen to new ideas which could improve the business operation. I am convinced they are operating the quintessential rental program. They place the owners and renters first and foremost. They will do whatever it takes to ensure a renter has a great experience! This attitude cultivates repeat rental business for my properties. My relationship with Island Real Estate started out as a business venture but has now transcended into many friendships. I appreciate all of your efforts and look forward to many prosperous years with you all! Brian Wien

As you know, I was not originally signed up with Island Real Estate. After enduring a year of problems with my old property management company, I moved to Island Real Estate. I've now been with you for the last five years. Being a long distance condo owner is not easy. But it's been a very good five years and I have no intention of moving to anyone else. I feel my issues are promptly deal with and I get top notch service whenever I call or email you. The people who rent from me(through you) are very well treated and if there are any problems that come up, you are always right there to get them solved. My involvement ends of being very little and the value is immense. I have a full time job and lots of family duties, so it's important that I can minimize the amount of time I have to put into the management of my condo and the renters. I get my monthly statements on time, the funds are always available to me when you say they will be and you list the expenses in plenty of detail. Whenever there has been an issue that comes to your attention, if there is any question on how I might want something done, I get a call or email. I gladly offer Island Real Estate my highest recommendation. You are hands down the best property management company on the island. Thanks for all you have done for me and my guests over the years and I look forward to a long and prosperous relationship. Regards, Michael C. Barnes (Formerly La Casa Barnes, now La Casa Denton)

My wife and I have used Island Real Estate as our property managers since we purchased our second home at 744 North Shore Drive on Anna Maria Island in 2008. We use the property both as a family vacation home as well as a rental. Living in California it is important to us to have property managers who are communicative, responsive and good marketers of our property. I am pleased to say that we have found Island Real Estate to be all these things. they have let us know when repairs are needed, then took care of them for us. They keep the property clean for us and our guests. And most importantly, they very professionally market the property, handle all the rental details and make our ownership, maintenance and rental seamless. I would recommend them to other property owners. Very truly yours, John R. Cadarette, JR.
