We were very pleased to have Dea Allen represent us in the marketing and sale of our Island Packet 40.  As a Yacht Sales Professional with South Coast Yachts she displayed a broad knowledge of the Yacht Brokerage business, and then researched the specific Island Packet marketplace.  Dea took the time to become familiar with the details of our boat, taking numerous pictures and producing a very attractive and effective ad.  She set reasonable expectations with us regarding the steps and probable duration of the sales process.  Based on her research and experience Dea was able to suggest an equitable listing price based on the boat’s condition, equipment, and the current market conditions.  Her excellent efforts resulted in numerous showings that brought multiple offers.  She then completed the deal by negotiating a sale price very close to our asking price.

Dea was a pleasure to talk with, always optimistic and diligent in keeping us abreast of all sales activities.  Her detailed and frequent communication were impressive and continued even when we were out of the country on a vacation cruise, something we really appreciated.  Dea is a true professional who successfully guided us through the entire process.  We couldn’t be happier.”
