My husband and I have bought many homes over the years. We both felt that Sue Carlson was one of the best real estate agents we have worked. She was very professional, and did exactly what we asked of her.

Sue is the best! I met Sue several years ago when my husband and I were vacationing on the island. We quickly fell in love with the area and started looking for a home. Unfortunately our situation changed and we were unable to buy at the time. We are now beginning our search again though in Bradenton not on the island. Thru the years Sue has always been available when I called and has always cheerfully shared her vast knowledge of the island, Bradenton and of Florida real estate. She has been very patient with my many questions and has promptly search out information on homes I was interested in. I plan on keeping Sue very busy while I am there this January and February as I hope to buy this winter. I think of Sue not only as a real estate agent but as a friend and always highly recommend her to friends. Yay! This winter we bought a house in Bradenton. We could never have done it without Sues help We had to leave Fl. a couple days after we submitted an offer. She walked us through everything from a distance, including starting up all of the utilities. She even arranged for someone to be at our home for cable installation. I don't know what we would have done without all of Sues help. Now she is helping my daughter who is moving to Florida this summer find a home. Sue makes looking for a home fun. We always have a great time with her. It is like spending time with a friend. Less ... More

Helped me buy and sell homes
We bought our first home on AMI in 2011 after vacationing here just ONE TIME!! We fell in love with the island and knew we wanted to purchase our own slice of paradise.. After buying and renovating our first beach house we were ready to upgrade to a larger home Sue was our real estate agent for selling the first home and buying our second home.. We found her to be extremely knowledgeable about AMI and relied on her expertise and guidance... We would highly recommend her services and when we are ready to buy again we will once again depend on Sue to help us from beginning to end! Less ... More

From the minute we found Sue on her website and she responded to our request for information, we knew we had found the perfect realtor for us. She is extremely knowledgeable about the area, and helped us so much in filtering through possibilities. She helped us avoid a couple of buying pitfalls, which we so much appreciated. She never pushed, just gently lead us towards our final goal of purchasing the perfect place for us. She is a great negotiater - her skills kicked into high gear at just the right time! We highly recommend Sue and her staff to anyone looking for an honest, forthright and energetic realtor. Less ... More

When we came to see houses, Sue had several viewings set up in advance with convenient timings and introduced us to the area in a very positive way. Being from outside the area, there were many things that we needed help with. Sue was very responsive. She gave us both the pros and cons which allowed us to make informed decisions and she helped link us to other local services that proved to be reliable. She is very personable.

?When we went looking for our beach cottage we were blessed to find Sue Carlson. We told her our budget and that we wanted to be as close to the beach as we could; we'd been told my numerous Realtors that our expectations were unrealistic. Through Sue we bought our dream cottage 2 blocks from the water in the perfect neighborhood for us; she gave us spectacular advice, understood what we wanted, and we found the right place. It was not a straight forward negotiation as the seller was immovable; Sue gave us solid, honest advice and helped us close the deal. It is obvious that Sue does not do her job for the money; she loves Anna Maria Island and the surrounding area, and loves helping people achieve their dreams. You won't find a Realtor with more Knowledge and Integrity anywhere.? Less ... More

Sue Carlson is owner-agent of An Island Place Realty on Anna Maria Island located on the Florida Gulf Coast, west of Bradenton. We first met Sue when we rented a vacation home from her in Feb. 2011. In Sept. 2011, after many emails, we met with Sue to find a vacation home on the island. We have owned 14 homes from Michigan to Florida, and have never worked with a more dedicated and professional realtor. Sue spent many hours showing us properties and always gave us honest and accurate comments. She doesn't work 9-5, but works with you until everything is done. One is drawn right away to her warm and outgoing personality. You start out as clients, but quickly become friends. Upon closing on our dream house, Sue was Wonder Woman. She attended the house inspection, found a repairman to complete repairs before the closing, and suggested landscape and pool service providers, etc. This was a valuable service to us, as we were in Michigan during this process. We look forward to spending our winters on AMI. We would highly recommend Sue for both realtor and rental services. Jay and Kathie Price Lake City, Michigan Less ... More

Sue Carlson is the owner-agent for An Island Place Realty located on Anna Maria Island on Florida's Gulf Coast near Sarasota. Sue was instrumental in our purchase of a lovely condominium located on the beach in Longboat Key. What we initially drew us to Sue was her sunny, cheerful personality and her friendly, approachable demeanour. But what really impressed us about Sue as our transaction unfolded was her outstanding customer service. We are Canadian residents who had never bought property in Florida before. We met Sue and she spent lots of time patiently showing us various properties and educating us about the local market. She gave us good guidance when we decided to make our purchase. Needless to say, we were concerned about completing the transaction by long distance. This is where Sue added tremendous value-add: she kept on top of the transaction through every step. She attended at the final inspection, took an inventory for us, attended at closing and sent us the keys. She recommended insurance agents, service providers, trades, painters, etc. She kept in contact and made sure we were happy and fully informed right through. Most importantly, she has remained a friend to this day and we have happily recommended her excellent services whenever we can. Diane and Steve, Toronto, Canada Less ... More

Sue Carlson who is the Owner-Broker of Island Realty, has a very extensive knowledge and expertise in properties through out the entire area. She vacationed as a child on Anna Maria Island, and she understands all aspects of Island Life and real estate values. She is very focused on the clients needs and put the customers needs first. She will spend time reviewing, showing and analyzing properties that are suited for your needs and your budget. She also has the ability to generate income for your property through a rental program that she can offer to her clients. Once you meet Sue and deal with her, you will end up becoming a friend first and a client second. I would never refer anyone other than Sue to represent any of my Real Estate Needs. She simply gives the term Real Estate Professional a new meaning. Bernie Gismondi Grosse Ile, MI Less ... More
