The Sanibel & Captiva Islands Specialist Designation (SCIS) was designed specifically for REALTOR® Members of the Sanibel & Captiva Islands Association of REALTORS® who specialize in Real Estate Transactions on the islands. Over 100 SCIS Designees that have pledged their time, completed all 12 sessions of the program, and received the designation have demonstrated their commitment to providing the most up-to-date information on all aspects of buying and selling real estate on the barrier islands of Sanibel and Captiva. The 12 sessions include:
Sanibel – Captiva Conservation Foundation – SCCF
City of Sanibel
J.N. “Ding” Darling Wildlife Refuge
Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife – C.R.O.W.
Captiva Erosion Prevention District

As any designee will tell you, the islands are not just a place where we sell real estate, it’s a place we live, work, play, and volunteer. We are committed to preserving and promoting the rights of property owners and wildlife.
So Why choose a REALTOR® with an SCIS Designation for your next real estate transaction? It goes without saying that choosing the right REALTOR® is key to any successful sale or purchase of property. But there are times when that just isn’t enough. Island properties offer a unique lifestyle and with that uniqueness comes limitations and responsibilities.
