Beyond her realty knowledge and years of experience in Captiva and Sanibel Island real estate, however, Phaidra offers you a unique perspective in your search for the ideal island home. As a lifelong resident of Sanibel and true “Florida girl,” Phaidra knows the special qualities only found on these preserved and protected barrier islands.

Her personal insight into what makes both Captiva and Sanibel Islands true gems, unlike any other communities in Florida, gives her the ability to match your vision of living or investing in a tropical paradise with the ideal homes containing all your “must-haves.”
When you picture island living at its best, you may imagine a beachfront home where you can breathe in the salt air, listen to the sounds of seabirds echo across the sky, and watch the sun set over the natural beauty of sand and surf – a place to get away from it all and relax in your own tropical paradise. If this sounds too good to be true, you haven’t been to Sanibel and Captiva Islands or met local real estate agent Phaidra McDermott. These island “jewels off the coast” of Florida offer waterside living unmarred by over-development, and Sanibel native Phaidra is the right person to connect you with the property of your dreams.
With her years of experience as both a Sanibel resident and REALTOR® exclusively serving this area, Phaidra has background knowledge and information on all the property listings and homes on the islands. So, no matter if you’re looking for a waterfront house with a boat slip, a cottage with a yard full of luxuriant, native plants, or a vacation beach house with enough bedrooms and bathrooms for your whole family, Phaidra will know where you can find it. And, with a thorough understanding of the region’s MLS listings, foreclosures, investment properties, and other homes for sale, she stands prepared to get you the best real estate deals. She can also arrange vacation rentals to give you a taste of the island life before you make a permanent move. It is Phaidra’s exhaustive commitment to helping her clients realize their vision of living in paradise that has consistently earned her the top producer award from her broker, John R. Wood, and keeps her ranked as the No. 1 sales associate there.
