Island Vacation Properties, LLC was founded in July, 2000 by Ann Caron, a real estate broker with fourteen years of property management experience on Anna Maria Island. It was Ann's firm belief that by providing unique services otherwise unavailable to property owners and guests, Island Vacation Properties would fill a void desperately needed in the marketplace. By focusing on ethical behavior and quality service, she knew that a competitive advantage was attainable. She also believed that the opportunity existed to cultivate trust and integrity into the real estate and property management field on Anna Maria Island. When Ann retired in 2016 Bill and Sara Annis bought the company and carry on Ann’s founding beliefs. Sara has been with Island Vacation Properties since 2005 and at the time of purchase was the rental manager. Bill joined Island Vacation Properties in 2013 as a sales agent and a CAM associate.
Starting with less than forty rentals in mid 2000, we have today numbered 250 properties, making us one of the top rental offices on Anna Maria Island. Property managers include Ken Richards, Susan Hollub, Jason Mooney and Amy Niedzwick.
At the same time, our staff was expanding on the other side of the business: real estate sales. Today, Mel Neely and Barbara Neely provide friendly, knowledgable and professional sales advice. Their success has been stellar and all three were in the top ten selling agents on Anna Maria Island in 2009. Their commitment to assuring the best possible service has made them one of the top selling sales teams on Anna Maria Island.
The company is also actively involved in condominium management under Michael Northfield Community Association Manager's leadership and Ellsworth Helm's assistance.
Island Vacation Properties' professional services are further enhanced by our support staff. Debbi Blomgren serves as Bookkeeper. Chris Nicol and Ian Mcmahon take care of our maintenance department. Osmari Albandoz is our Cleaning Coordinator and guest liasion.
Personal service is the hallmark of Island Vacation Properties. Our objective is the absolute pursuit of total excellence in both property management and real estate sales. We at Island Vacation Properties take great pride in our rapid growth and the positive response we have received from buyers, sellers, landlords and tenants alike. While all of us have diverse interest and skills, we never forget that at the end of the day, we are in a service business. We value each customer that comes to us and do not take for granted the trust that they have placed with us.
