  • Sue Carlson

    Broker / Owner — an island place realty

    Hello! My name is Sue Carlson. I have been coming to Anna Maria Island for years, luckily, visiting my parents who spent winters here to escape northern Michigan winters! After taking travel groups to faraway places around the world, always thinking the grass was greener on the other side of the fence, I have finally found my piece of paradise right here in the United States, on the Gulf Coast of Florida and Anna Maria Island!

  • Douglas Shaw

    Sales Associate — an island place realty

    My wife, Michele, and I are natives of Traverse City, Michigan. In 2013 we decided to “live the dream” and purchase a vacation home on Anna Maria Island. Working with Sue and An Island Place Realty made the process go seamlessly, and her obvious knowledge of the island and personal approach was an unexpected bonus.

    After making the decision to retire after almost 37 years as a practicing chiropractor, my wife and I made the permanent move to the “perfect place,” and I have started a new career in real estate. Working with Sue at An Island Place Realty was the obvious choice!

    Spending 36+ years as a doctor of Chiropractic and taking care of people have taught me the value of truly listening to people’s concerns and desires to help them achieve their goals.

    My commitment to hard work, excellence, honesty, combined with an in depth knowledge of the available properties on the island are the philosophy that drive my real estate practice. Please call to schedule an appointment today to see if “The Real Estate Doctor” can help you achieve your goals! I am anxious to work with you!

    Hello! My name is Keith Barnett. I was born in Miami and raised on Grand Bahama Island, where my father, Captain Ray Barnett, was instrumental in the early development of the island. I have spent the last 25 years residing on the Gulf Coast of Florida, 17 of them on Anna Maria Island. I followed in my father's footsteps, serving in the U.S. Coast Guard, and am a licensed 100 ton Master, advanced open water scuba diver, and rescue diver. I am owner of Barnett Blinds, and my wife, Rebecca, and I still travel frequently to the Bahama Islands.
