A Dynamic New Approach to Real Estate – Albert & Michael – Saba Island Properties

Saba Island Properties A Dynamic New Approach to Real Estate
  “Action is the foundation key to all success.” — Pablo Picasso

SABA Island Properties is definitely taking action and… receiving it!

More and more people are asking us to help them sell their properties, to buy or rent on Saba and even to change their lifestyle and move here.

They chose us because of our reputation, our website and recommendations. We’re expats who moved here 6 years ago from New York City and we’ll tell you our story and all the facts and feelings we have of living here as no one else can. That’s our promise to you.

Our clients are people right here on Saba and from:

  • Our Caribbean neighbors — Statia, St. Barths, St. Maarten, St. Kitts, Anguilla, Nevis
  • In the United States — Virginia, Florida, North Carolina, Maryland, Texas, Connecticut, Missouri, Ohio, New York
  • And beyond — Canada, Holland, France, Switzerland, Sweden, Abu Dhabi

 

One client wrote this to us:
“We’re so pleased to have been introduced to both of you. The way you approach the business relationship is miles above what we encountered with other agents. We’ve experienced rudeness, with no follow up or commitment or confidentiality.
We’re used to working professionally with a real business contract and a real plan to move forward. We see that things are changing on Saba and the old ways of doing business are catching up to the 21st century.
You’re dynamic! You take action. Your enthusiasm and passion are what sold us on working with you. Just because Saba is a five square mile friendly island doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be professional, respectful and transparent about what you’re doing. We trust in you and that’s what other people said —
You can trust these guys. They help a lot of people out.”

♦   ♦

These deeply moving words validate who we are and our choice to have SABA Island Properties
be a caring force — a company with a dynamic new approach to people and real estate.
A company you can also care about and get the results you hope for.

 

Life and work is pretty dynamic

We’re stimulating business and people — inventing — creating — planning — growing — taking risks — being fearless — shaking things up — being persistent — taking initiative — following up — building confidence — learning and counting on other people for help and doing it with vigor!
Doing it on purpose. Doing it with love.

When people come to us looking to buy or sell land or their homes, to build or renovate they expect us to keep up — to connect and to be really present every single moment when action needs to be taken and results must happen. Whether it’s rebuilding a pool, repairing a roof, redesigning the interior of a home, ordering tiles and furnishings, gardening, negotiating, getting bids, budgeting and paying strict attention to the smallest of home details — colors of woods, linens, wine glasses, table mats, napkins, silverware, plates and much more.

That’s what Saba Island Properties is good at — really caring about what you want. We’ll make real the Caribbean Lifestyle you image.

We make sure that what we offer is relevant, valuable and of the best quality. We often say, and it’s 100% true — we  actually give a damn; caring enough to make a difference in how you and your home are treated, even if you’re renting a cottage or a villa for just a week.

– How are you going to get noticed if things don’t matter?
– How are you going to get noticed if your heart isn’t in your work?
– How are you going to get noticed if there isn’t trust?

Change is not always easy and many people want things to stay the same; to be status quo. The feelings of change, thinking and dreaming about moving to a new place, living in a foreign land, is key to the people we work with and they ask questions like these:

  • What will it be like to live on Saba?
  • How well will I fit in?
  • How expensive will it be?
  • Is a 5 mile island with about 2,000 people too small and remote for me and my family?
  • Will I be safe?
  • What about taxes and health benefits and residency?

 

All these questions are crucial to you and to us. We’re here to talk about all your aspirations and hopes, as well as your fears and doubts. To get real answers to all your questions so you’ll know if Saba is right for you. We’re 100% confident that we can help you because we’ve lived through buying and moving from the United States and even opening a business to work on Saba and we’re really happy we made the change.

Why Saba?

After living and working in New York City for 40+ years I leaped right out of the rat race of corporate America; leaving behind the relentless stress and competition that was wasting me; to rediscover what really matters to me in life.

We went looking for a new home all over the world - the Azores, the Maldives, France, Italy, Spain, Morocco, Malta, the Caribbean and by pure luck, found Saba.

Saba gives me peace, joy, freedom and a community where I feel I belong. People are respected here; living free and open, in the heart of deep nature and incredible beauty. It's a remarkable change.

The work we do enables us to care about other people. Helping them find a new home with practical empathy for their needs and dreams. It's an emotional investment. To listen. To understand. It's work that matters to us. Work we're proud of.

Maybe you have similar yearnings for change. Wanting a better way to live.
A place where you feel at home, with yourself and with the world.

You might just be looking for a new spot to vacation. Unique. Unknown. Crowd-less. Safe. Friendly.... Hello Saba.

Or... you're already hooked on Saba and keep coming back year after year because you love it! Booking your favorite hotel and room or renting a Saba cottage or villa.

Or... Saba's lifestyle makes you dream of a bigger change. A more personal connection to this exclusive, wonder of an island. Something lasting. Just yours and investing in a home is fixed in your mind and heart.

Feel free to email me and let's find out exactly what you want and see --
Is the Caribbean island of Saba right for you? Let's make those thoughts and wishes a reality and then... they won't be thoughts and wishes anymore.

I look forward to saying to you one day --'Welcome home!
Be it for a week or... a lifetime.
