Patti Stanley has been a resident of Islamorada since 1977 and has over 20 years of experience in the real estate market representing distinctive properties in the Florida Keys. Prior to joining another brokerage in 2011, Patti owned and operated Island Villa Properties a luxury homes real estate brokerage. Today, she still runs the property management and vacation rental firm, Island Villa Rentals which focuses on privately owned estates, waterfront homes, condos and small villas. Her firm expertly negotiates terms and provides unparalleled service for her clients.
In addition, her company is known among and film crews and production companies as being the go-to, well-connected professional within the Florida Keys. Whether an estate home, beach, or park, Patti helps find the perfect location for filming movies, scouting and photo shoots.
Patti’s extensive knowledge of the area has earned her the title, “The Native Connection.” She offers her customers an education far beyond what’s on the market and for how much. Among the sea of local realtors, Patti stands out as a dedicated and trusted professional who engages with people and makes the business of real estate enjoyable, informative and effortless for her clients. “It’s fun to be the native guide,” Stanley says.
Patti loves to spend her free time giving back to the community. She has helped raise thousands of dollars for Voices for the Florida Keys Children, which advocates for children in foster care. She is a member of the Mariner’s Hospital Foundaton board as well as a volunteer leader on several nonprofit boards in the Keys. It’s easy to see why the Business and Professional Women selected her as the Woman of the Year. She and husband, John, have three grown children and young grandchildren who all live, work and play in Islamorada.
I met Patti Stanley three years ago. She was so kind to show us houses all day long. I saw a house then, but was not ready to move yet. She contacted me to tell me the house is back up for sale and I closed on it June 13th! I will go to Patti for more property because when my family comes to see my house they are not going to want to leave Islamorada!
Patti listed and sold a large beachfront property for me in Islamorada. I had bought it through her 11 years earlier; we carved out and sold a 3-acre parcel in 2005. Previously, I had bought and then sold a smaller property on Columbus Drive. That adds up to five transactions through her which speaks to the issue of how I regard her. Patti is the most competent Real Estate professional I have ever worked with. She always puts her clients interests first.
Patti is incredibly professional and yet warm and understanding. She is so creative when confronted with an issue. She’s the kind of person who will think ahead about what issues might come up and how to deal with it before it becomes a problem. I wish Patti was my contact on all my properties.
Patti is the best realtor we have EVER dealt with!! She is extremely organized and on top of every detail. Her knowledge of property values is dead on! She always has our best interest as her top priority. She is so awesome–a very sincere, honest, and loyal person. She is truly the best!
