Being born and raised on Anna Maria Island, Darcie is big on community involvement, giving back, and building relationships, which is why she believes her business profits from a strong referral base.

I grew up on Anna Maria Island and went to Anna Maria Elementary. My family built a home in Holmes Beach in 1951 where there used to be an airport. My Dad had a plane that was stored under our house that was custom built by Holmes Construction, owned by one of the first island settler families.

I moved to Georgia in 1980 but have always stayed in touch with the island and lived or visited here all my life.

In 1987 I became a realtor and have lots of experience in residential real estate working with buyers,sellers,builders,veterans,and first time buyers. Over the last 32 years I have earned numerous awards and was a Vice President with Meybohm Real Estate which is the largest firm in the Augusta, Georgia area.

Bill Romberger

Bill Romberger


Years of small business ownership and professionalism has shaped Bill’s approach to real estate.  He and his family owned and operated the Tropic Isle Inn in Bradenton Beach for 12 years, transforming this island eye sore into one of the leading boutique hotels on the Island, leaving a lasting mark on the island accommodations industry. Living and working on the island he and his wife were married and had their three children on the island.  During his ownership of the Inn Bill became a founding member of the Anna Maria Island Chamber of Commerce as well as a Board of Directors, sat on the Island Scenic Highway Committee and engaged in numerous community activities with other islanders.

He and his family decided to sell the Inn a few years back and moved to Charlottesville, VA to be closer to his wife’s parents and raise their three children.  In Virginia, he spent most of his time honing his skills in design, restoration, and construction remodeling a historic 1840’s home and fulfilling his wife’s dream of owning and operating a women’s clothing boutique.  Never losing touch with the island and spending all summer vacations here, in 2019 the time had come for Bill and his family to permanently move back to AMI. He reconnected with old friend and business associates and now is a proud agent for Duncan Real Estate.

With integrity, humility, patience and detail, Bill’s hands on approach is appreciated.  His experience in design, build, organization, finance and all aspects of real estate are vast and combined with his integrity, humility, patience and detail will be extremely helpful to his customers.
