"We were first time home buyers and our Realtor Anita from Island Brokers Realty made the search for our first home a pleasant one. She was so patient with us and she really took the time to understand what we were looking for in a home. While looking for a home, Anita came across a new housing development just getting started here in Oak Harbor. She thought that for what we were looking for in style and price of a home, that this was perfect for us. She was absolutely right. It had everything that we were looking for in a home. The only problem was that this meant that we would need to wait 3 months for it to be built. That was going to be okay with us. Anita was there to walk us through the process of new construction step by step. Every detail that we needed to know, starting off with putting together offer papers, knowing what to expect from the builders, how it works with building a new house, paperwork we would need, appointments that needed to be made, who we needed to talk too, to what kind of preparations we would need in order to close on the house. Closing date was coming up quickly 5/27/10 (Thursday), there was a slight dilemma though, Memorial weekend was going to be that weekend of closing. So in order for us to be able to move in during Memorial weekend we would need to sign papers on 5/26/10 (Wednesday). It was a very stressful couple days but Anita along with our lender James worked hard and were very persistent on getting us to be able to sign papers that Wednesday. They made it happen, because of them we were able to get the keys to our brand new home, we moved in that weekend. Our realtor Anita went above and beyond to make our dream of owning our first home a dream come true.

"Your courteous service while I leased a home from you was by far the best I have ever had. I am writing this to thank you for your assistance and to let you know that I will recommend you to all of my friends and family for future rental/lease companies to go to.

Sincerely, Charles James." (04/09/09)
"We've had a pleasant experience as tenants of Foxwood Apts. Island Brokers is thorough, professional, and understanding. Communication is best face to face by visiting their office as it is hard to get through to someone on the phone. We appreciate the open & upfront style - there are no surprises. Thanks! =)"

"You guys did a great job and made it as easy as possible. You help out people in the military when deploying and stuff."
Mr. CP (05/08/09)
"I rented a studio apartment from Anita for a year. It was very comfortable and I enjoyed the view of the marina. The building was quiet and yard was always mowed. And I had no problem getting my deposit refund back within two weeks. I would definitely rent from IBR again."
Mr. JS (04/09/09)
"Island Brokers Realty made my very first experience renting and leasing an apartment hassle free. They handled everything professionally and addressed maintenance issues promptly. I highly recommend them based on their integrity & legitimate business dealing during the time I was renting through them."
"I signed a years lease with IBR then got military orders after seven months. They released me from my lease with no problem. I had the fumigation, carpet cleaning, etc. all completed before the move out inspection. I didn't know what my forwarding address was going to be yet so they wrote me a check for my deposit refund that day. IBR made the whole experience hassle-free and I was surprised at how quick they refunded our deposit for us. Great people!"
