- We’re clear about our purpose in life and business — helping people.
- Having empathy by hoping to understand what you want and most desire.
- Putting ourselves in your shoes; caring about your dreams and plans as you visit, rent or even buy a home on Saba. That’s a promise.
Much of our success doing this is movingly expressed in this testimonial:
“Albert & Michael recognize that every home purchase is a major investment for that home buyer.
That empathetic adoption of our perspective is really remarkable.”
Empathy is a powerful force. It’s based on:
- Trust and respect
- Creating change
- Engaging with people so you feel what they feel
- Listening to someone else’s needs and doubts
- Understanding what goes on in another person’s head and heart
- Consistently delivering on your promises
We’re extremely grateful we could help two other people buy a home on Saba that they love! Finding a way to meet their needs, create a solution and make their dreams come true so they could feel — ‘These walls and floor, roof, land and view are my home.’
Dreams are real things
American feminist, journalist and social, political activist Gloria Steinem succinctly defines the truth about dreaming:
“Without leaps of imagination, or dreaming, we lose the excitement of possibilities.
Dreaming, after all, is a form of planning. “
The generous endorsement below backs up her words — that your dreams and plans are really possible! That’s at the heart and excitement of our work and we thank Rachel and Vaugh for validating what we do and the love we do it with.
“As medical school professors who had been on Saba for several years, we had fallen in love with the island and wanted to stay. But we never thought we would be able to buy our own home on Saba. Working with Michael & Albert at Saba Island Properties made our home ownership on Saba not just possible, but easy. Albert & Michael worked closely both with us and with the sellers of Island View Villa to help us put together a sale that was mutually beneficial.
Then, they shepherded us through the process of meeting with notaries, getting deed documents drawn up, and all the other legal processes involved in purchasing a house that would otherwise be very daunting for American ex-pats like us.
Michael & Albert were unfailingly gracious, generous, and kind in all of the help they gave us. Before we decided on the house we most wanted to buy, they took us to a wide variety of properties, all of which were beautiful. At each place they were happy to answer all our questions.
It was always a pleasure to work with them as they provided an exceptional level of service.
Throughout the entire process, it was very clear that Albert & Michael consistently put our interests as home purchasers ahead of their own as realtors. We are not the wealthiest of home-buyers… yet we were treated by both Michael & Albert as if we were major investors. I think this is because Albert & Michael recognize that every home purchase is a major investment for that home buyer. That empathetic adoption of our perspective is really remarkable.
Saba is an incredibly beautiful island full of friendly people. It is a dream to own a home here. Albert & Michael made that dream possible for us. If you also want to live that dream, and are looking for the most charming and helpful real estate agents on one of the most beautiful islands in the world, you should talk to Albert & Michael.” — Dr. Vaughn Huckfeldt & Dr. Rachel Robson – Saba Residents & Home Owners
