  • 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!

    My greatest joy, now, is helping others find the same relaxing, vacation spot through my company, Coastal Cottages AMI, or a lasting home with An Island Place Realty!

    Anna Maria Island is magic. It took me about one day to figure that. I flew in for my best friend's wedding and pretty much never left. It was the lifestyle that hooked me. The lifestyle when you feel like you are on vacation every day; you can walk to some of the most beautiful beaches in the world; watch amazing sunsets nightly; trade in the suit, tie and heals for swim attire and flip flops. It is a feeling of freedom and tranquility.

    My family and I love living on Anna Maria Island and everything that comes with it. I have been involved in Real Estate since I unpacked my bags. From vacation rentals to residential real estate, I have dealt with the best. I know the island, the community and the market. I would love to help you invest in you living the Anna Maria Life.

  • Doug Shaw

    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!
