1309883968ENGLEWOOD, Florida—(June 9, 2011)—Charlene and Kevin Mackin, veterans of property sales and vacation rentals on Palm Island, Don Pedro Island—and the surrounding coastal communities near Englewood along Florida’s Gulf Coast—have joined Michael Saunders & Company in its Englewood office.

The Mackins—whose firm Mackin Realty enjoys a lengthy reputation for friendly and efficient customer service—will continue to provide the same level of local expertise for their buyers and sellers. As part of the move, the Mackins will continue to offer their customary array of rental services, backed by the resources of Michael Saunders & Company to more fully promote these vacation destinations and properties both nationally and internationally.

“Drayton and I are thrilled and honored to welcome Charlene and Kevin to Michael Saunders & Company,” said company founder and CEO Michael Saunders. “In addition to being among the most trusted specialists in Gulf Island properties, the Mackins are just the sort of local experts who can familiarize incoming buyers with their amazing island neighborhoods and lifestyles. To know the Mackins is to be instantly privy to the best source for property, lifestyle and rental information in these unique coastal communities.”

Originally from Danville, Illinois, the Mackins have lived in Florida for the past 22 years. A sales professional throughout his entire career, Kevin has been a licensed real estate agent for 11 years. During that time he has focused his expertise on waterfront properties in and around their adopted home of Palm Island.

“There’s as much to learn as there is to love about our island neighborhoods,” says Kevin. “For this reason, we have focused our expertise for the past 11 years on being island specialists. This is a very special community where Charlene and I have developed an immense circle of friends and acquaintances. We feel very blessed to be here.”

As many of our buyers first experience Palm Island as vacation or seasonal renters, Charlene’s day-to-day responsibilities will continue to include the leasing, management and administration of these exceptional vacation properties.
