SABA Island Properties – We Actually Give a Damn! – Albert & Michael
♦ ♦ ♦
When we receive an endorsement
it’s exciting and so gratifying because a person has taken the time to carefully express what they think about the job we’re doing. They don’t fill in a generic form — it comes right from their heart and you’ll see that in this testimonial from Dan Guida — long time Saba resident. It’s logical and emotional with lots of specific facts and feelings. Special – Unique – Moving.
How can we best serve our clients?
It’s a good question. We like to serve every person
we work with to the best of our abilities and then do it some more… non-stop, with more vigor and more innovation and more precise care. You see — We actually give a damn!
And when you sincerely give, because it matters, people take notice and tell you. It shows in Dan’s generous backing. Thank you for your recognition Dan.
“I am someone who is passionate about life. Everything I do, I do with love and the full force of my being…or not at all.
I was very pleasantly surprised to find kindred spirits in Albert and Michael when I decided to list my home with them. They went out of their way to make the process painless, gather information, take pictures, set a realistic price based on market conditions, and showcase my home in a manner that is at once accurate and flattering. This detailed, thorough, objective and ethical approach is especially important on Saba, where the same realtor customarily represents both the buyer and seller.
Albert and Michael care. They care about the island of Saba, its people and the environment. They don’t just sit down, ask a few questions and draw up a contract. They care enough to take the time to help a seller showcase her home in the most advantageous fashion, offering decorating and even reconfiguration tips when necessary. They care enough to tour the property multiple times, becoming intimately familiar with every detail so they can accurately represent the home and help a buyer find the ideal fit.
I had a decorating mishap (not easy to remedy on Saba, a small island with a dearth of readily available resources) and needed someone with practical knowledge of decorating and panache, who thinks outside the box, to come up with a solution. I thought nothing of asking Albert and Michael to help, even though my request went way above and beyond the call of duty, because they are the type of people who eagerly, happily and routinely deliver a level of unparalleled, excellent service that goes way beyond that which can reasonably be expected. Albert and Michael to the rescue! They were thrilled that I asked them to help. As I write this, I am awaiting their fix for 3 sets of custom drapes that are too short and not wide enough. I feel confident that they will come up with a brilliant, tasteful solution. If there were a dedicated HGTV network for Saba, Albert and Michael from SABA Island Properties would surely be running it.
Whether you are a buyer or seller, I can’t recommend the services of these two very knowledgeable, ethical and caring men highly enough. Their commitment to excellence and superior service is rare to find anywhere on the planet, least of all on a small island.”

Michael Feeley, Life Coach:
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.
