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.

Reviving Sandy Lane

Posted on Thu February 06, 2020 | By Jeanie Mahon, Real Estate Agent

Well Well...

Since 2018/2019, the traditionally prestigious Sandy Lane Neighbourhood has gained some momentum with a number of recent property deals and buzzing sales interests. Historically ‘the place to be’ for wealthy families pre-market crash, Sandy Lane experienced a dip in the market for say, the last decade. However, over the course of the last year and a half, the market has witnessed some revived interest. We have found this interest to be mainly in modern and new homes and/or properties with fair asking prices. Here are some to name a few:-

Monthly Wrap Up

Posted on Thu January 09, 2020 | By Rachel McCartney, Leader - Brokerage

It’s 2020! I always start the year with reflecting (not looking back… because the only time to do that is when you are reversing) on achievements and then use that to frame my mind on what I want for myself and my team.

What a year 2019 was! Some may say it wasn’t great but I think it’s where your mindset was. I saw growth; growth with my team, stronger bonds and in turn more sales due to cooperation and with the known fact that two heads (or sometimes 21 heads) are better than one.

This blog is not only about the top 10 sales for 2019 but what I learned from my resilient team and the process along the way. They really are a bunch of rockstars!

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?

The Perfect 10

Posted on Fri March 10, 2017 | By Hayden Hutton CCIM, MRICS , Chief Operating Officer

“Real Estate values in Barbados never go down.” Seems hard to believe but just ten years ago, this was the signature adage about the Barbados real estate market. The view was that property values generally increased, levelled off at times, and then increased again.

WHY BARBADOS? WHY NOW?

Posted on Thu November 17, 2016 | By Karyn Fakoory , Real Estate Agent

As is expected, we real estate practitioners in Barbados have been speculating and trying to forecast the short- to long-term effects associated with the fact that the citizens of the United Kingdom have voted to leave the European Union. The possibilities coming out of the so-called Brexit have ranged from scenarios of depression and out-right doom and gloom, to frenzied optimism. However, we sit with bated breath as it remains to be seen how the chips will truly fall.

Barbados’ Tourism Resurgence

Posted on Wed July 27, 2016 | By Tarik Browne, Group Knowledge Manager

The global financial crisis in 2009 had a profound impact on Barbados’ tourism industry.  Arrivals dipped sharply, and after a recovery in 2011 failed to be sustained, 2013 saw the lowest long stay visitor arrivals since 2002. Since then stakeholders have implemented a revamp of the government support structures for the industry, and along with increased confidence in the global economy, arrivals have gone from strength to strength.  Total arrivals were up by 13.7% in 2015 and nearly 17% from the low in 2013. 

 

The Value of a Valuation

Posted on Mon July 25, 2016 | By Symon Clarke , MRICS - Manager - Advisory Services

Real Estate is complex, and for that reason, clients require the property valuation experts to provide Market Valuation reports for their various purposes. The interest you hold in a property heavily influences your perception of the property’s value. During this recessionary period it has been particularly challenging reconciling market reality with perceptions, given the general fall-off in market prices.
