Real estate agent in Saint Marteen

About Us



DIFFERENT Real Estate has been established in January 2001.

Since more than 2 decades it is our pleasure and pride to sell properties on the beautiful island of Dutch Sint Maarten.

We also assist you with purchases on Saint Martin, the French side of our islands.

My name is Sabine Liebehenz. I’m originally from Berlin, Germany and have made Sint Maarten my home after falling in love with the island, its wonderful people, great food and loads of sunshine.

Therefore, in case you would want to communicate in German with us, please feel free to do so.


My associates and I have been working with immense pleasure to assist people just like you in finding their dream home, investment or business. It can be quite intimidating to purchase property in a foreign country,- that’s where we step in and help.

We have worked with a large number of people, but for us, they’re not just numbers. They are now our friends, repeat clients and in some cases even neighbors.




We were amazed!

We didn’t think we had done anything “DIFFERENT”.

We hadn’t tried to do anything more than always be accessible, either by phone or email, be friendly and to listen to the wishes of our clients. 

And yet, that was exactly what people were thanking us for. Listening!

Purchasing a property in the Caribbean can be intimidating, but we want you to know it can also be fun.

We learned from our clients, that purchasing a property isn’t just about a villa or a condo.

It’s about you! It’s about making you happy! That means, we should not just find you the right property but also make sure, that you are comfortable enough to ask all questions you might have. 

Most of all it means, that WE NEED TO LISTEN TO YOU.

Our goal is to assist you in making your dreams of owning a piece of paradise a reality for you.

Therefore we promise to:
– make you comfortable
– assist you in all aspects
– answer all your questions
But most importantly we promise to listen to you.

What our clients say about us

Different Real Estate through the presence of Sabine Liebehenz, offers a reliable and professional representation of your interest as a purchaser or as a seller!


Sabine is straight to the point and does not paint any rosy pictures about your property or your acquiring needs.


She is a person of her word and will take great care of you!

Rose Marie Lemmons

When I first met Sabine Liebehenz at Different Real Estate, she explained, that her job is more service than sales.

She proved that time and again with her thorough knowledge of the local real estate market.

Every time we viewed a new property, Sabine would perform a methodical inspection, looking for signs of problems and commenting on the quality of construction, finish, appliances, etc.

Sabine also led me through multiple rounds of negotiation to get to a price I felt comfortable with.

I was so fortunate to have found Sabine Liebehenz as my realtor, she helped me find the right home in the right neighborhood for the right price.

She is very honest, patient and understanding as we searched for homes over several months and cautioned me about making unreasonable offers or dealing with unreasonable sellers.

In short, she was always on my side working to make my home purchase as simple and successful as possible.

The best part about working with Sabine was that she is always more focused on answering my questions, giving me good advice, and finding homes that met my needs than she is on closing a deal.

I would recommend her to anyone.

I gave Sabine my house for sale , as I also did to others Real Estate agents

She definitely was tenacious, and she did bring more potential buyers than any others agents

She was a very good sales woman , even it was not an easy sale , she never gave up.

This is why she was the one who sold my house

Ines de Courcelles

If you look for a realtor you want someone who is reliable, decisiveness, has a big network and has empathy.


She has it all!
