Irene Arriola Broker/Associate, Realtor®, GRI, CDPE

IRENE ARRIOLA has practiced real estate full-time in St Augustine and St Johns County for over 16 years.  From the outset she recognized the unique aspects and free-spirited nature of the area, and so associated herself with independent firms like Saltwater Property Group that had the flexibility and imagination to meet the challenges of providing top-notch services for such a community and its consumers.

The result of this personal business plan has consistently placed Irene among the top five producers in the county.  Her marketing skills have put her services and her properties at the top of nearly everyone's list, and her talent for turning a phrase and bringing descriptions to vibrant life has taken print advertising to the level of art. 

Not one to take without giving back, Irene is generous with her community service.  She provides the Council on Aging with pro-bono representation on a regular basis.  From time to time she acts as Realtor for the City of St Augustine as well.  She is also Secretary for the St Johns Housing Partnership and serves on the Board of Trustees for the new St Augustine Public Montessori School.  In addition, she pens the popular "View from the Porch" for Old City Life magazine and is on their advisory board as well.

Irene has been chosen by her community Realtor of the Year three times and her proudest achievement remains the O.E.Barnes Humanitarian Service Award presented by her peers.

Irene has the distinct honor of being chosen five times by the residents of St. Augustine as a "Five Star Real Estate Professional." Respondents were asked to consider real estate agents they knew through personal experience and to evaluate them based on the following criteria: Customer service, direct and honest communication, finding the "perfect" home, integrity, effective negotiation skills, marketing efforts, industry and market knowledge, dedication and overall satisfaction.  These are, in fact, the suite of skills that Irene has become widely known for commanding.

The daughter of a former ballerina with the Ballet Russe de Monte Carlo and of a journalist with El Dia in Mexico City, Irene has spent much of her life immersed in music, dance, poetry and prose. Married to a musician and songwriter, she also acts as his agent and creative muse.

Certifications & Awards: Graduate of the Realtor Institute, At Home With Diversity, and Certified Distressed Property Expert.

Specialty: Irene specializes in selling homes in downtown St. Augustine as well as waterfront property.

Team reviews

I have bought and sold houses with Irene on many occasions and at different periods of my life which included different income levels and housing needs. She has always been professional and supremely knowledgeable. I recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. Perhaps the most distinguishing characteristic is Irene's dedication to making sure that the transaction can be the best that it can and that her client understands all the nuances particular to real estate transactions. I have complete trust in Irene and her abilities.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $300K in Saint Augustine, FL.

Irene Arriola is an amazing dynamo! Irene is a genuine, honest, and caring person, who is also incredibly knowledgeable and thorough when it comes to real estate.

The house we purchased in Lincolnville had some issues (one being it was a multi-family that needed to be converted to a single family). Irene took the time to explain a litany of potential issues and pitfalls we may encounter (prior to an offer being written). We are sure she shared that same conversation numerous times before with other interested parties. We were not deterred, but encouraged by her candidness.

Once our offer was presented, Irene recommended local, trustworthy contractors who would look at the property and provide quotes; so, there would be no surprises as we proceeded with the purchase. She also helped us navigate utility set-up with the City offices and FPL. Irene has an extensive network of local tradespeople, who are all helpful and responsive.

From introduction to closing, Irene worked tirelessly to make this transaction the smoothest we have ever experienced. She never answered a question without knowing the right answer was being provided. Irene was (and remains) easily accessible; and, she was the Seller’s Realtor!

Not only did we find a superior Realtor, who exudes professionalism and ‘love of community,’ but we found a new friend in the Old City and consider her a treasure. We highly recommend Irene!

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $350K in Saint Augustine, FL.

Irene was recommended by a friend, and we certainly made the right choice in choosing her for our agent. She knows absolutely everyone, and anytime I asked her to do something, she had already done it.

I was diagnose with cancer right before our closing, and Irene jumped in and took care of everything, leaving me to concentrate on getting well. That alone made her priceless.

If you are moving to St. Augustine, this super power is the agent you want!
