Comments by Clients:

We first came to Barbados for a cruise that I had received for my 50th birthday, 4 years ago. During our time on the island, we absolutely fell in love with the climate and the people. Switch to 8 months later, when we were back in Canada from Europe where we lived at the time, we did a side trip to Barbados. We were met by Karyn at our hotel, the Butterfly if memory serves. On the South Coast. Immediately, we liked Karyn. She was cheerful, all smiles, and a true pleasure to be around. We came back to Barbados the following February, (2016) and Karyn found us a wonderful rental property for us to live in while we looked for our dream home. We stayed at this property until the end of May 2016, and in that time Karyn must have shown us every possible house that was for sale on this entire island. We went North, South, and settled on West. Finally. Karyn would pick us up at our rental in Sandy Lane, she would have pages prepared for the houses/condos/castles that we were going to go to to take a look. During our many many many days together we discovered how professional Karyn is, how well she does her job, how she is never pushy (which is the absolute worst thing for an agent to be, to be our agent!), and how, no matter how many houses/condos/castles she showed us and we Ixnayed each and every one, she always left us with a smile. We began our search on the South Coast with a bungalow, which was around $350,000 USD. We soon discovered that pricing on Barbados would require us to come to the table with a wee bit more cash. Hence, the showing us of houses/condos/castles! We finally settled on a little sea side villa in St. James that required a full year of renovation. We are now very happily ensconced in our happy home, Karyn pops by every now and then when she is driving by just to say hello and to make sure all is well with us. We could not give Karyn Fakoory a higher recommendation for her tireless efforts on our behalf, her winning charm, her knowledge of the properties of the island, her many many contacts and finally, that contagious smile that she always greets you with every time you see her! - Brent McCarthy & Peder Berggren, Barbados

I have known and worked with Karyn for a number of years and throughout that time Karyn has proven to be someone I can rely on. We have worked on a number of transactions for vendors and purchasers and Karyn has always been a beacon of professionalism and a doyen to Terra Caribbean and the real estate market in Barbados. - Warren D. Mottley B.Sc. LL.B, Attorney-at-Law

There Is No Place Like Home

There is no place like home…no truer words have been said, especially in the midst of our current reality. 

When You Know You Know

Posted on Wed March 11, 2020 | By Karyn Fakoory, Real Estate Agent

Most of my clients have heard me say, “you have to kiss a lot of frogs!”. I am referring to the number of houses that you sometimes have to see before you find THE ONE. Searching for the perfect home, whether it be the primary home for you and your family or a second (or third) home, brings with it a lot of emotions: excitement, anxiety, impatience, surprise and sometimes even resignation.

What does “Furnished”, “Appliances Only”, and “Unfurnished” mean for a listing?

Posted on Wed November 27, 2019 | By Karyn Fakoory, Real Estate Agent

If you were to take a poll, and ask - “What’s the difference between furnished, appliances only and unfurnished?” - you will get a myriad of answers. Funnily enough, even though each answer will vary there lies a bit of truth in each one. The definition of these terms will vary from property to property, but I have broken down the essentials that you need to know.

Brexit, What this means to Barbados

Posted on Wed October 23, 2019 | By Karyn Fakoory, Real Estate Agent

They do not call us Little England for nothing! My car stereo is locked onto BBC as my listening choice while I am on the road, and Brexit has been the trending topic for the last couple of years, and especially now with October 31st looming overhead. Will there be a No-deal Brexit? What will this mean for the UK going forward?

Ugly Ducklings

If you are anything like me, then you too are obsessed with HGTV, and especially shows like Fixer Upper, Love it or List It, Flip or Flop etc. You get the picture. These shows take “ugly duckling” homes and transform them into dream homes. I always think, why can’t we do that here?
