About Island Consulting Realty

Since its inception many years ago, president Tom Tubbs had one thought in mind about timesharing: There's a better way to do this! Having grown up in his father's boating business, he learned a valuable lesson: Give your customers more than they expect and always be accessible to them. His dad's 43 years in business saw the competition come and go.

By the same token, Tom has seen many time share companies come and go in the last 20 years. The industry has evolved greatly. The consumer now demands more and expects greater service, all at a lower cost. Tom saw his niche. He saw that the average resort spent 60% of it's gross revenue on promotion and marketing. He saw that the service after the sale was poor. He saw salespeople whose only interest was in their commission check. He saw that these resorts enjoyed very little repeat business and even less referrals. How did he see it? From first hand experience----he worked at a time share resort in management for a number of years. And what he saw troubled him. He saw people who had trouble trading their time shares. He saw people paying top dollar for a time share because the marketing costs were so high. He saw salespeople lying about resale value. But he also saw one other thing. There were other people who absolutely loved their time share and could trade it for anywhere they pleased. Thus, there were "good" time shares and "bad" time shares.

Since that time Tom has been interviewed by radio personalities and has appeared on TV talk shows for his expertise in the time sharing field and his very different approach to marketing and servicing the customer.

On a personal note, Tom Tubbs, the owner, makes his home in Sarasota with Charlie, the Wonder Dog. His family is originally from the US Virgin Islands and his still very-active mom makes the very best Chicken and Rice you'll ever taste (ask and he'll share the recipe). He’s active in his church and he is blessed to have two wonderful children, Jesi and Jason. He also enjoys gourmet cooking, and is an avid biker, skier and holds a black belt in Tae Kwon Do. (also, if you're a cigar connoisseur, you have an instant new friend with Tom) God, family and travel are his loves (along with a very fine cigar at the end of the day...) .
