by m

How long have you been a real estate agent and/or in the real estate business?

Caribbean Property Investments Limited (CPI Real Estate) is solely operated by me and has been in the real estate business since 1998.

What are the top 3 things that separate you from your competitors?

What separatees us from others? a) I am well known personally and so I get direct referrals. b) I give free advice to anyone wanting to buy or sell property. c) I do not push anyone to buy but give an honest opinion on a property’s value which is well received.

Which countries are the majority of your purchasers from?

Majority of sales are of course from Barbados but primarily returning nationals and europeans wanting to settle in Barbados. The same applies when these people cannot settle and want to sell up and return.

Have sale prices been affected by the global financial crisis in the last 6 months?

Yes, sale prices have been dropping gradually. In many cases owners wanting to sell have had to consider lowering their prices as the market seems to be rather cautious of investing large funds during this global economic crisis.

Do you have a presence on other islands in the region and/or outside of the region (affiliations)?

CPI have contacts outside the region, and these contacts provide the relevant information on a shared basis to effect clients introduced.
