Kathleen White here…I am not real fond of writing about “ME”, so I am going to let a few of my past customers do so for me…please see below…What they do not say that may be important to you is..I have been selling on Anna Maria Island and close- by for about 11 years. I love my job and the people I work with…that would be you… I am a full time Realtor working for you 24/7… all year round. I promise 100+ % to make sure you achieve your goals in buying or selling.
This letter is to express our sincere appreciation for the professionalism, efficiencies and expertise that real estate agent Kathleen White provided during our vacation rental property search and ultimate purchase.
Right from the initial phone call Kathleen quickly grasp exactly what it was we were looking for. For our first visit to the area in search of properties Kathleen was very well prepared and, based on our input, had assembled an excellent sampling of properties and locations for us to view. This was extremely important for us since we were only in the area for two days. Due to her preparation and knowledge of the area, we were able to confidently select a property and begin what would ultimately become a successful purchase.
Kathleen was a real bulldog when it came to staying on top of whatever was the issue of the moment. From the seller’s agent to attorneys, agreement language, Inspection Company, banks, closing agents, etc., she was the common bond that kept it all on track. Kathleen was always the one taking the lead role in following up on outstanding issues as well as providing any necessary communication across all parties.
The property we purchased was a short sale, which has its own unique challenges, but Kathleen very capably managed the process and continually kept us informed as to where we were and what we could expect. Since we do not live in the area, Kathleen’s ability to effectively communicate all aspects of the process was invaluable and allowed us to feel comfortable everything was proceeding as it should.
Bottom line is we had a great experience and now own a piece of the Anna Maria Island dream. We couldn’t be happier and can’t thank Kathleen enough for all her help. We look forward to working with Kathleen on our next purchase.

We contacted Kathleen when we were only thinking about a gulf-front condo on Anna Maria Island in February, 2012. We wanted the professional assistance of a buyer agent in our search. Kathleen was immediately helpful and available to us on our schedule even when that meant a Friday night or a Saturday afternoon. We were surprised that gulf-front condos were within our price range. Her intimate knowledge of the Island, its quirks and its residents were just what we needed to feel comfortable with our decisions. We found a remarkable residence with great gulf views perfectly sized for us. Kathleen spent as much time as we needed to understand the purchase procedures in Florida. It was immediately apparent the Kathleen has the highest work ethic and our best interests were paramount. Her knowledge of all the ancillary steps to complete the purchase and her personal and professional connections on the Island made the entire process as painless as possible. Kathleen’s willingness to go above and beyond was evident at every turn. We are indebted for all her kindness and generosity. We closed on leap-day.

Kathleen helped us buy a condominium in Holmes Beach Florida, which wasn’t an easy task as we are non U.S. residents. There was also complications throughout the sale which Kathleen took in her stride and guided us through the process, nothing was too much trouble and her help and advice has been invaluable to us. We look forward to working with her in the future and would recommended Kathleen and Island Real Estate.

We had an amazing experience working with Kathleen. She is an agent who listens to her clients and does everything in her power to help them find exactly what they are looking for. She was able to answer any questions we had and was always quick to respond when we called or emailed her. There is not a better agent on Anna Maria Island.
