It didn't take long after moving to Anna Maria Island for me to realize that THIS was the place to grow roots.

I fell in love with Anna Maria Island during a visit for my best friends wedding, I didn't want to leave this island paradise, but I did…just long enough to pack up my big city life and make the move to this small island town! I just knew in my gut that this was the place to grow roots. And so I have. Since that time, I have built my career, my life, and my family here on Anna Maria Island. Over the past 10 years I have been honored to work with many so many wonderful people, and build thriving businesses on the island through networking and personalized face-to-face relationship building.

The island is my home, and so I've got an ever constant finger on the pulse of the community, and the local market. If you want to live, visit, invest, or sell on Anna Maria Island, Longboat key, or in the surrounding areas, I'm the one to call! I'll be there for you every step of the way, and beyond!

I pride myself in a unique ability to truly personalize the home buying or selling process, your needs always come first! I promise we will find you your perfect home or sell your home using my revolutionary B.A.M sales system, that is guaranteed to give your home maximum exposure to the world of buyers!

For investors my vast experience with coastal real estate and vacation rentals gives me an edge in the market. For example, some investment homes will rent more often than others, I'm always glad to help guide an investor toward the right property for maximum returns!  

I have been honored to be a leader in the development and support of female business owners on Anna Maria island. I started a women's networking group that is now 50 members strong and growing. The group is designed, not only to create business for our members, but also to provide insight, awareness, and support in life and in business.
"These ladies don't just show up with a list of names, they show up with a true concern for their community and the people we can empower and have a positive impact on. There is a very big picture we are all striving for."

"This unique island offers so much to investors of all sorts, whether it be family or property, and it gives you it all with accessibility to a paradise. If you are looking for the full package, you've just found it."

 "My husband and I worked with Billi and every time we spoke or met she was very knowledgable and because of her in depth experience in the area, we trusted her opinion and appreciated her honesty. I could contact Billi anytime of the day or night and never felt disconnected. The best part about Billi was the level of comfort she gave us. Real estate is a big decision and she is easy to talk to and she listened to our needs. I felt as though I was her #1 priority. I will absolutely use Billi again. I would not think to recommend anyone else to my family or friends. No one is as good as Billi across the board. She will get 100% of my recommendations."

"I recently bought property on AMI in Florida. I was very fortunate to have had Billi Gartman as my realtor. The whole process took less than three weeks! It never would have happened if it were not for Billi's hard work and attention to details. She took the time to make sure I was sure I was making the right purchase and was comfortable with the process. She was able to negotiate a good deal and was available to answer all of my questions. I found her to be dependable, reliable, and very enthusiastic during the entire process. I will be recommending Billi Gartman to my friends and family."

She explained advantages and disadvantages for vacation rental purposes. She was great at negotiations and gave me fabulous guidance and advice overall. I would highly recommend Billi to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in Manatee County." 


 "Billi is a great person to work with. She shows lots of enthusiasm. Billi is an excellent communicator via email, text, or call. She responds to clients in a very timely manner.

"Billi's enthusiasm is contagious! Her positive attitude and up-beat disposition energize sellers and buyers alike. Billi's knowledge of the Anna Maria Island and West Bradenton sales / rental markets make her the winning candidate to guide you through your home buying / selling experience."
