Why work with On Island Real Estate? Because we work for you, the buyer.
There are always two sides to every real estate transaction – the seller side and the buyer side. The vast majority of the time, the seller is represented by an agent who has been contracted to list and sell their property, and to represent only their interests in the transaction. Have you ever thought about how a buyer should have their own representative in a real estate transaction? Buyer agents work exclusively for the buyer to assist them in finding the best property that matches their needs and wants, advocates for them through the negotiation process, and strives to make the transaction as transparent as possible. The State of Florida requires each broker/agent to provide certain duties to each client: dealing honestly and fairly, loyalty, confidentiality, obedience, full disclosure, accounting for all funds, skill, care and diligence in the transaction, presenting all offers and counteroffers in a timely manner. Again, a good buyer agent advocates for their client and strives for transparency, and On Island Real Estate specializes in representing buyers in the Sanibel & Captiva market.
Sanibel & Captiva has a niche real estate market which consists of a mix of primary and secondary home owners, as well as investment vacation properties. Depending on your goals, navigating the island market, and its nuances, can be a bit daunting. Our agency has 20+ years of experience on Sanibel and Captiva, as well as most areas in SW Florida, and can guide you through the challenges of acquiring a property. We look forward to the opportunity of working with you!
