Laura Basset is a Broker and owner of her own real estate group here in San Diego. As an agent it is always refreshing to work with wonderful agents who will take the time to go above and beyond throughout the transaction. We were happy to work with her and purchase her client's home. 


"I worked with Chris and Drew when they purchased one of my listings. I have been in real estate for 17 plus years and am always looking to work with individuals with integrity who do what they say they are going to do. Chris and Drew are those type of individuals. I highly recommend them."

"I would not have been able to design a home like this without Drew’s fresh perspective and technology skills."

"This was my smoothest transaction
of the year!

Roberta Long has been a Coronado resident since April 2016 and recently decided to renovate her home on First Avenue. With hopes of a total remodel, she was trying to end the search for someone that would listen to her requests. Roberta had been told by many other individuals that she would not be able to have a roll in (handicap accessible) shower in the bathroom.

"Everyone told me it would not fit, everyone kept saying no."

Roberta finally heard her first

"yes, we can do that"

from Drew and Chris and began renovation.

Her remodel consisted of a brand new roll in shower, new kitchen with appliances, new: flooring, windows, lighting, paint and fireplace, as well as her new smart-home features. Roberta’s favorite aspects of her new home are “[the] floor, [the] giant sub-zero refrigerator and [the] smart home functionality.”

She describes the Islander Properties team to be
"very motivated to do all they can do for me and other people."

"New layout pulls home out of the past, into bright future.

Developer Drew Chance and interior designer Steve Charette put some midcentury magic back into a drab 1950s home in Deepwell Estates."

Jen Rierson stated she has been involved in some dramatic deals in the past and her transaction with Islander Properties LLC was her smoothest yet. Her buyers were interested in looking at one of our listings and ended up loving the house. Jen thought

"the house was tastefully done and the work done was great quality."

Rierson was thrilled to have the deal close early, "we closed two weeks earlier than expected."

When the buyer asked to fix a few things before closing Rierson received photos of a fixed job the following day. 

"Drew and his team were very accommodating and was always quick to respond"

"I just closed a transaction with Buckeye Investments at 320 E Millan, San Diego, CA 91910. Chris and his team were extremely responsive in their communication and were organized through out the process.

They were on top of every closing detail and closed when they were expected to."

"He is sharp, hardworking and always looking to learn something new. Islander Properties is a great company."

"We began the project as partners and it turned into a meaningful friendship and lasting business relationship."

Jeremy Avriette is a Palm Springs native
and began working with Islander Properties on a renovation project in the area. Avriette was excited to work on the project because from the beginning Drew was able to purchase the property at a significantly cheaper rate than the list price. The home underwent a very cosmetic remodel and was completely turn key ready. The home is now being used as a vacation rental in the desert.


Avriette was amazed at Drew's

"leadership and coordination of different components of the remodel."

He speaks highly of Drew's eye for design and ability to wear numerous hats at once. Avriette stated the home receives many compliments regarding its beauty and luxurious amenities.

This home's modern design, open floor plan and beautiful backyard are key features which landed it a spot in the premiere local lifestyle magazine,

"I had to sell my property quickly and in a small window of time.

Drew and Chris at Islander Properties were not only professionals, they took care of everything.

I am always traveling for work but despite my absence they took care of everything to include maintenance issues, staging, contracts and back and forth communications.

The home had multiple offers and closed within 30 days. 

They also diplomatically handled a tough sale with a divorce which required more time and effort on their part.

Thanks for saving me on numerous occasions and providing peace of mind during the sales process."

— Selina Hayes, Seller
