Island Equity Real Estate


“I want to let you know how much I appreciate all of your help and understanding with the sale of our mother’s house. I know it turned out to be more difficult than we thought and became very stressful for myself and you also. You are the very best and I would recommend you to anyone in need of your services. Thank you so very much.”

Dennis McGowan, Seller of Hammer Point Bayfront Property

“Holly was a remarkably good choice as our realtor. She gave thoughtful, detailed advice on listing the property; aligned us with a buyer; facilitated the purchase on the first day of listing at near asking price; and happily assisted with the many details of the sale right up to closing. In addition, the high performing team she assembled which included photographers, marketing and permitting specialists, and the closing lawyer were all easy and helpful to work with. All in all, Holly has been a pleasure to associate with.”

-Roland Barth, Seller of Hammer Point Bayfront Home

“Recently it was our pleasure to work with Holly Hight as the realtor selling our house on Plantation Key. She came highly recommended by someone who has been buying and selling real estate in the Keys for years. In addition to our property in the Keys, we have also been working with realtors in Clearwater and Gainesville, Florida. None have come close to providing the extraordinary service provided by Holly Hight. Our property in the Keys was listed for a couple of months but was unable to be shown because of obstinate renters. Once the renters were out and the contractors had completed repairs of the damage left by the renters, Ms. Hight had a signed contract on the house very close to the asking price within a week. Ms. Hight is very professional, highly motivated, knowledgeable about the area and, as previously stated, provides extraordinary service. She was always available for questions and is very resourceful in finding qualified contractors if those services are needed. We highly recommend her without hesitation or reservation whatsoever.”

“I’m in my new home. It’s an apartment in a castle in Tuscany. My days are filled with art and music and long walks in the Tuscan hills. I wouldn’t be here now if it wasn’t for Holly Hight. I spent an entire year signed with a big name agency who did very little to market my waterfront home in the Upper Keys. When a friend recommended I get a new realtor, I interviewed quite a few. Holly Hight impressed me as the one who could do the job. And, wow, was she the right choice! Holly went to work immediately with ads, flyers, signs, and such beautiful photos. Within 14 days she had three good offers in hand. My property sold for more than the asking price and closed in just a few weeks. Holly Hight really knows the market and she fully understands the financial aspects of selling a home. I’ve sold several houses in my many years and Holly is the best realtor I have ever had. I recommend her to anyone who is motivated to sell but wants to get the right price!”

“Holly is truly a Keys expert…she knows every mile marker and coconut tree by heart! During our shoot, it was obvious that Holly’s passion for and knowledge of the Keys makes her a valuable person to know when buying a house there. She delights in sharing “her” Keys with clients and regards each one as a potential new neighbor.”

“Just sending you this note to say thanks for the way you handled the complete purchase of my investment property in Key Largo. From locating the property that I was looking for, through the negotiation to reach our terms, and the closing process, you were both professional and helpful. I will certainly contact you when the time comes to sell the property. Thanks again.”

​—Dennis Foster VP Coastal Construction Group Inc.

Terri is exceptionally dedicated to her clients. I live 1200 miles away from Key Largo.  When I wanted to sell my investment property, I was concerned I would never hear from my agent. Terri ‘s communication was exceptional and with her guidance and help we sold the property in a fraction of the average time on market at a fair and reasonable price. Thanks Terri

“Holly has renewed our faith in real estate agents. We would actually call her a “real estate angel”. Holly worked very hard for us to ensure that we were comfortable, from our selection of a neighborhood, to finding the exact type of vacation home, to selecting the perfect place that our family will enjoy for many years. She did not stop there; she was very diligent during all the negotiations and the contract stage. She kept us well informed, beyond what we would have expected, as to what we needed to do next to make the transition virtually seamless. Holly, with her Keys-like charm was very savvy as she maneuvered through some obstacles. We would recommend Holly very highly and will certainly be calling her again when the opportunity to buy or to sell comes our way.”

“We have purchased many properties for personal use and as investments. This was by far the smoothest purchase we have ever had. All matters were handled with great expertise and reliability. Island Equity Real Estate also proved to be a great resource for us as we live in New York and are not familiar with everything in the Keys. We continue to keep in contact for future endeavors.”
