Saba Island Properties – What’s the Affinity?

Albert & Michael SABA Island Properties
AffinityA spontaneous or natural liking for someone or something 

You may have an affinity for: – Apple – Nike – Richard Branson – Adel – Serena Williams – good service – pocketbooks – cell phones – justice – kindness – high standards – Paris – Italy – New York City – Game of Thrones – pizza – Chinese food – cigars – fine wine – rainbows – sports cars – diving – hiking – your hair dresser…

Even in real estate people have affinity — a natural liking for their agents and the service they receive.

We — Albert & Michael — are steeped in affinity as Saba Island Properties steadily grows and is appreciated more and more by people here on Saba, throughout the Caribbean and worldwide with our affiliation with R365 / Christie’s International Real Estate.

We want to be your first choice in real estate and also indispensable to you

We have an affinity for Saba and our real estate work  because we completely believe in our product and that propels us forward. It’s an exciting feeling and vision – fresh and deeply appealing to people who are looking to rent, buy and even build a brand new home to live here in the beauty, majesty, simple elegance and natural existence of Saba.

We like to create value and comfort so your first contact with us — be it a phone call, an email or a visit to our real estate office on Booby Hill —
will be worthwhile and meaningful because then… you’ll tell your story; share your experience openly with other people.

Affinity begins with the first momentary awareness you have, that instant, ‘… liking for someone or something.’ It’s magical.
And, when people like you and your product, are truly attracted to your qualities and ideals and they feel good, they keep coming back and refer you in the most rewarding ways.

The affinity of having people believe in you and value the difference you make is endlessly gratifying

Like this recommendation from Alan D. Alford, owner of – ‘Nearly There Cottage’:

“I have really enjoyed working with Michael & Albert from SABA Island Properties. They have proven themselves to be thorough, prompt, flexible and responsive, and consistently operate with a high level of professionalism. It has always been my impression that they are more interested in genuinely assisting their clients to achieve their objectives than they are in chasing every last nickel from an opportunity.
I would definitely recommend their services to anyone looking to buy or sell real estate on Saba.”

See what we mean about affinity? This is his story and his feelings for liking us and we fully thank Alan for his solid support and trust.

It reminds us of this quote by American poet Dr. Maya Angelou… which says a lot about affinity:

“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said,
people will forget what you did, but…
people will never forget how you made them feel.”

Beautiful and true, right? That’s exactly why people work with us — because of how we make them feel.
People have a natural affinity – liking for respect, sincerity, quality, truth, care and integrity.

That’s what we delight in. It’s our affinity and it drives us.

Connecting with the right person is crucial when looking to buy, sell or renovate a property because… this is your home.

Finding the perfect location, where you’ll be totally comfortable, is my ultimate goal for you.

My years of experience with Real Estate and Interior Design, will help guide you toward that positive result - be it a traditional Saban cottage - an impressive estate - a gorgeous piece of land or... investing in a business here on Saba.

We’ll find exactly what works for you; examine all the parameters of your future home, and I’ll do my utmost to put the pieces of the puzzle together for you.

Discovering the island of Saba was the change I was searching for. A change of lifestyle. Leaving the ridiculous, debilitating fast pace of New York City and financial stress behind.

I came to Saba to retire but soon learned that I was too active to sit around and had too much life knowledge and experience not to give back to other people. My work in real estate enables me to do that and much more - helping people live well, here on Saba.

My specialties are residential work - interior planning – contracting - purchasing furnishings, materials and all other resources - adept at space planning - keen ability with color selection - highly capable of working with every media and in a variety of styles.

Creativity and staying on budget are real priorities for me. Pulling it all together and making it easy for you, is what I do best. From Bermuda to France, throughout the United States; working with CEOs' of top global businesses, recent college grads, newlyweds. I’m here to make you feel completely at home.

Come to Saba. We’ll have fun making your wishes and plans a reality!

*I'm a graduate of Parsons School of Design and I was - Corporate Senior Vice President of Interior Design for W & J Sloane and - Corporate Design Director for the Bloomindale's stores. Then I opened my own company -- Pensis - Stolz Inc. / KPS - at The Design Center in New York City for over 35 years. What stories I have for you!

I worked with Givenchy - Leona Helmsley - the Chairman of Sony and The Museum Tower Apartment - The Four Seasons Hotels - Johnson & Johnson - Gloria Vanderbilt and more.

I was fortunate to have designed for the Vanderbilt show houses - Kips Bay - The Woolworth Estate - The Gould Mansion - The Gimble Estate -The Gold Coast of Long Island - the Scarsdale Country Club - The Weis Center for the Performing Arts at Bucknell University - the King of Saudi Arabia - Mrs. Nat King Cole.

Everything from private train cars - planes - yachts - lobbies - and the joining together, designing and completely redecorating (from top to bottom) a double, four story townhouse in NYC. Wild and wonderful projects! I'm also proud to say I was a weekly contributor to the New York Times for many years.

I'm still working with private clients throughout the world and I absolutely love my work in real estate. I had no idea the people we would meet when we opened Saba Island Properties or the friendships we have made. We're connected all around the world. That's exciting, amazing and profoundly gratifying to me.
