Irene is exceptional. She helped us buy our dream home and sell our old house. She is and has been highly respected in our community for many years. You could say that she’s the “Godfather” of St. Augustine Realty. There isn’t a question she can’t answer or a problem she can’t solve within the hour. We are so honored to have been able to work with Irene. She goes above and beyond in every way. She’s truly the best.

Irene is one of the best realtors in the business. We have used her services to buy and sell properties for years and will continue to do so. She knows the St. Augustine/St. Johns County market extremely well. She is also meticulous in her contract and closing details.

My husband and I were first connected with Irene when looking for a rental. She was kind & responsive when other realtors wouldn’t give us the time of day once we told them we had a large dog. Even though we didn’t end up renting through Irene, we knew she would be our first call when we were ready to purchase our own home.

We had a wonderful experience working with Irene. She is well connected with the community & will go above and beyond for her clients.

Irene’s in depth of knowledge about the particulars of Saint Augustine neighborhoods, combined with an intimate understanding of the ever changing market conditions have made her an indispensable part of our real estate experience here. We have navigated two purchases and one sale with Irene and were extremely well served in all three transactions. Bonus: Irene is also a very enjoyable person to spend time with if you like intelligent conversation and a good laugh now and again. Thanks Irene!

Irene was thorough and thoughtful. Excellent, I would reccommend her to anyone. She has a wealth of local knowlege that will accommodate any out of town buyer. Her reccommendations for local vendors were outstanding. More 


Through two home purchases we have been most fortunate to have had access to the extensive resources and knowledge of Irene and the team at Salt Water Property. Each transaction has been seamless, and Irene always stayed one step ahead of us in terms of what we needed to have on hand. Our work was essentially done for us — she took what could be a very tedious and sometimes stressful process, and instead made it straightforward, simple and timely! Her connections to the right people and access to the appropriate channels cannot be undervalued, and we felt completely taken care of at all times.

Irene helped a great deal with two sells last year. One a house and the other a lot. Both times she was well organized and exhibited comprehend knowledge about the property and market. She did the necessary work that was required for the sell at the market price of the properties. Irene is a true professional. A great person. Jim Stevenson


I have complete trust in Irene. She will be in your corner fighting for you the whole time. Buying a house is scary, but Irene’s skills make it easy. Inspection, paperwork, closing, etc… all went off without a problem. I would use Irene again in a second if I need to sell/relocate/buy. Always answers the phone and always has time to answer questions.

Irene is a pleasure to work with. Her staff at Saltwater Property Group and any outside vendors she brought in were also professional, reliable, and great to interact with. Irene has vast knowledge of the area and the real estate climate in St. Augustine. We felt very taken care of as she handled extra details of the sale, such as finding a market for all the furnishings. She also sold our property in a much shorter time than we expected. Most importantly, Irene is straight-forward and we trust her completely.


Irene is very efficient and has a full understanding of the Saint Augustine market. Her experience and knowledge would be helpful to anyone seeking to buy or sell here.
