The face behind Barbados Property List

Hi there,

My name is Monique Truss and I’ve been working in the real estate property sector for the last 8 years. My career has taken me in several directions, but all essentially within the Barbados real estate and property development industry.

Just out of university, I started out in property management (Lashley Properties), I then moved on to assist a property developer (Reg Mulligan) in mid 2004, managing the construction of 3 high end projects on the West coast; Sandy Cove, Sugar Bay (now called Mullins) and several luxury villas in Sugar Hill. In 2008, I joined the team at Cinnamon 88 to manage marketing and advertising for the Four Seasons Project in Barbados & Grenada. Like many other recession victims, the Cinnamon 88 project came to a halt the following year. I then took a role as a resort sales agent with the Royal Westmoreland team for a few months in 2010. Later that year, I took a short career break to help my uncle build a new cafe/ restaurant in Speightstown called The Orange Street Grocer. We took a ram-shackle building and turned it into a modern dining experience known for its excellent healthy salads and pizzas. I was involved in all areas of construction and planning on the OSG project.

Whilst working at Westmoreland and The Orange Street Grocer I also began work on a property listings portal called Barbados Property List. In fact, Westmoreland became one of my first customers and helped me grow the site in those early stages. The idea behind BPL was to provide a platform for agents and owners to list their properties on a clean, user friendly website with little or no hassle to them. Manually uploading listings myself guarantees quality content which translates into great exposure and consistent high-quality leads.

The other side of BPL is an advertising vehicle for companies who are eager to promote their service, product or event. And, BPL is now able to provide businesses with online marketing services a via Web Shop, whereby you can achieve brand awareness and high quality leads to your business. Web Shop also provides website building services whereby you can achieve a sexy, easy to manage website built from one of our many templates at a much more affordable price than a customized website.

Member of B.E.A.V.AIt has been a great experience growing this business. I have learnt so much and will no-doubt continue to do so.

Kind Regards,
