Below is a selection of testimonials regarding The Hartling Group, as well its previous projects, The Palms Turks and Caicos and The Sands at Grace Bay. Additional references are available upon request.

  • "Being a condo owner at the Sands for more than 3 years, I can highly recommend the Hartling Group. The welfare of the property has been maintained at a very high level, and the management staff is always very responsive to owners' questions or needs. The garden and pool areas are kept in immaculate condition, and with a first class restaurant on the premises, the Sands has become one of the premier resorts in the Turks and Caicos Islands. Our investment in the Sands is one of the best decisions my wife and I have made. If we consider any new purchases in the future, a property developed by the Hartling Group will be our first choice."

  • "The name Stan Hartling had an impact on our decision to purchase a unit at The Sands two years ago. Our real estate agent said he was honest, hardworking, and dedicated to his projects on the island of Provo. Shortly after purchasing our unit, we met Stan and other members of the Hartling Group to discuss the proposed renovations to The Sands. In a short period of time, the Hartling Group has done exactly what they said they would. The recent updates to The Sands are a fine example of a strong commitment to a project. With Provo expanding in the tourist industry so much over the past two years, there are many new developments. We feel extremely comfortable with the choice we made. The Hartling Group continues to exceed our expectations."

  • "I have known Stan Hartling for over ten years now and have always found him and his team to be hardworking, honest, open-minded and island visionaries. From the first project at the Sands to their crowning glory, the Palms, his team has always been helpful and open to suggestions from their investors. Stan makes investors feel like homeowners and vice versa. I have no hesitation characterizing Stan as a developer, builder and manager - but most of all, a friend. Both Irene and I look forward to future endeavors with Stan and the Hartling Group. "
    Rudy & Irene Bianchi
  • "Stan Hartling is an honorable man. A simple statement, but one which rarely can be honestly made. Stan and the Hartling Group have developed two of the most successful properties in Provo, and have always carried out their developments in a business like fashion. The two finished sites speak for themselves. Both The Sands and The Palms are sterling examples of vision and quality workmanship. Stan knows every aspect of doing business in Provo, and on an island it is always advantageous to know how to get things done. I have always found his team to listen carefully to the concerns of others, and to respond in a thoughtful manner. Stan and his team immerse themselves in every aspect of any project they are involved with, and that commitment to detail inevitably leads to its successful completion. It is with great pleasure that I convey these thoughts."

  • "In the last 4 years, we have purchased 3 units at The Sands at Grace Bay. We would not have done so if we had not so been impressed with Stan Hartling and the group of professionals he leads with the Hartling Group. We are looking forward to acquiring additional units at The Sands or in other ventures led by Stan's group."

  • "We have called Turks and Caicos our 'home away from home' since our initial visit in the early 90s. Eventually we made the decision to purchase and having met Stan Hartling and his team made that decision easy. Stan is a man of his word and he always brings more to the table than promised. Our memories of The Sands will remain with us forever. And then came The Palms. What an emotional experience when we first opened that front door and saw what Stan and his team had created for us! Both investments have been so enjoyable and very successful. We look forward to continuing our relationship with The Hartling Group which is certainly an organization you can trust. Venice, Florida"

  • "We have been owners at The Sands for 7 years. It has been a very positive experience. The Hartling Group has been innovative in its marketing and management of the property. They are responsive to our needs. We truly enjoy our little piece of Paradise."
    Dan & Maureen
  • "The Management kept their promise. The renovations of the Sands Lobby, Pool area and Hemingways are wonderful. The upgrade of our unit exceeded our expectations. After owning at the Sands for 8 years we would recommend without hesitation any property managed or owned by the Hartling Group."

  • "Being one of the first owners and occupants of The Sands, we have been very impressed with the total result of the complex. Stan Hartling has lived up to all of our expectations, and we are here to stay."
    Betty & Jay - Michigan, USA
  • "We just wanted to let you know how delighted we are with our investment at The Sands and The Palms. We bought one of the units in the last building at The Sands -it was our good fortune that you were able to add that building to the complex. We have thoroughly enjoyed vacationing "in paradise" and have been extremely pleased with the income we earn through the rental program. With the current worldwide economic situation less than positive, we are delighted that we are able to reap the benefits of an excellent investment, and one that's so much fun."
    Russ & Hilary - Pennsylvania, USA
  • "In life one travels many paths and meets many people. Many strike a chord with you. A few form a truly lasting impression. Stan Hartling and his crew at The Sands are this kind. From the moment we walked into the lighted gardens of The Sands, we knew we were home. We have not been disappointed."
    Jack & Jean - Duck, North Carolina, USA
  • "The Palms has raised the bar for luxury Resorts in Providenciales. The attention to detail that is required in order to achieve such a lofty objective is manifested in every aspect of the project. Carol and I have been able to participate in the development since its inception and we are thrilled with the results."
    Carol & Peter - District of Columbia, USA
  • "We have been involved with many real estate/condo ventures but none as successful as the relationship over the past 8.5 years and have been involved from purchase, operation and sale of condos in The Sands as well as purchase at The Palms. In addition, we have participated on the Condo Committee and can say the whole experience with Stan Hartling and his team has been exceptionally professional."
