5 questions for Suzanne Davis, Realtors Limited

by m

Realtors Limited logoHow long have you been a real estate agent and/or in the real estate business?

I have been in the Real Estate business for 22 years and in that time I have managed Villa Rentals and Property Management as well as being a Real Estate Agent. I have recently taken over the management of the Real Estate Department whilst still being an agent.

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

We at Realtors Limited pride ourselves on being one of the most longstanding full Real Estate businesses on the island as we are 54 years old and therefore have broad knowledge of all areas of Real Estate. We have probably the largest selection of Villas for rent and for sale on the Sandy Lane Estate. Our warm personal touch ensures that we continue to have a great many repeat clients both for rentals and for sales.

Which countries are the majority of your purchasers from?

Most of our purchasers are from England/Europe.

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

Prices have been affected by the global financial crisis with some owners who are keen to sell reducing their prices up to about 20% and others, although not altering the listed selling price, negotiating anywhere between 10% – 40% with an average of around 20%.

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

Apart from Barbados, we also have a few properties in St. Lucia, Grenada, and the Grenadines. We have also recently become affiliated with Mayfair International Realty, based in London, England and through this affiliation have been getting great international coverage.
