Why Not Celebrate the Holidays Every Day? – Albert & Michael – Saba Island Properties
So many feelings and thoughts come into our heads and hearts with the holidays.
Mostly large and moving gratitude for the life we have and the success of our business. Saba Island Properties was built on gratitude along with dreams, logic and love, plenty of hard work and the help of many other people who believe in what we’re doing.
– Sales of land and homes
– Interior design
– New construction and building costs
– Property management
– And… service, service, service!
Hand in hand with all of this is giving – helping others – the community – customers – friends and family and the intention to always live good lives because… we do live in a beautiful place and that’s a gift and daily reminder of how fortunate we absolutely are.
A Dozen Gifts for You
Here are 12 quotes that express what we do and feel as people and real estate agents. One for each month of the year.
1. There is nothing like a dream to create the future. – Victor Hugo
2. An interior is the natural projection of the soul. – Coco Chanel
3. Let us be grateful to people who make us happy;
they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom. – Marcel Proust
4. If there are people you want to serve, then there are people in this world that you are meant to serve.
Not kinda, sorta, because they’re in your target market… but meant to – that’s the way the universe is set up if you’re in the business of serving others. – Michael Port
5. We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give. – Winston Churchill
6.To be successful in real estate, you must always and consistently put your clients’ best interests first. When you do, your personal needs will be realized beyond your greatest expectations. – Anthony Hitt
7. In the real estate business you learn more about people, and you learn more about community issues,
you learn more about life, you learn more about the impact of government, probably than any other profession that I know of. – Johnny Isakson
8. To give real service you must add something which cannot be bought or measured with money,
and that is sincerity and integrity. – Douglas Adams
9. A customer is the most important visitor on our premises. He is not dependent on us. We are dependent on him. He is not an interruption in our work. He is the purpose of it. He is not an outsider in our business. He is part of it. We are not doing him a favor by serving him.
He is doing us a favor by giving us an opportunity to do so. – Gandhi
11. No house should ever be on a hill or on anything. It should be of the hill. Belonging to it.
Hill and house should live together each the happier for the other. – Frank Lloyd Wright
12. Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home,
a stranger into a friend. – Melody Beattie

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.
