JANINE CAREY JOINS DAMIANOS SOTHEBY’S INTERNATIONAL REALTY AS AN ESTATE AGENT

NASSAU, The Bahamas (November 22, 2021) — George Damianos, Chief Executive Officer for Damianos Sotheby’s International Realty, and Lana Rademaker, Chief Brokerage Officer, are pleased to announce the addition of  Janine Carey to the sales team in Nassau.

“Between the accelerated rate of business this year and our firm’s well-established reputation as a market leader and a company which offers significant growth opportunities, we’ve attracted some very high-caliber agents so far this year, and Janine is no exception,” said Rademaker.

A longstanding member of the professional community in Nassau, Carey has been an entrepreneur and business owner on New Providence for more than 15 years with a significant portion of that career spent in health and wellness.

 “Utilizing my combined background in business, healthcare, and wellness, I approach my real estate business from a holistic perspective, focusing on homes and environments that offer my clients a sense of balance, well-being, and a healthy lifestyle, whatever that may mean for each individual,” Carey said.

In addition to her established success in building businesses and nurturing long-term client relationships, Carey has lived in five different countries including the U.S., Canada, Spain and Germany picking up a passion for cultural diversity along the way.

“Living in a variety of places has allowed me to experience the full evolution of moving to a new country and building a new life in many different environments—from renting in cities, to living on sustainable off-the-grid eco farms and homes—and I’ve found that each place requires its own unique version of immersion and local knowledge,” Carey said. “I know what it feels like to move to another country and start from scratch, finding dentists, doctors, a  local network and a community of like-minded people, so I truly enjoy leaning on my own relocation experiences to benefit my clients as they navigate their new lives in The Bahamas.”

“Janine’s entrepreneurial background, strong community ties and proven dedication to excellence in client service make her a valuable addition to our team,” Rademaker said. “And with her diverse base of clients, she’s well-positioned to thrive in the global network that defines Sotheby’s International Realty as a brand.”

“Our Shirley Street office served us well for over seven decades, and we are proud to have been a part of the downtown business corridor for so long,” said Rademaker. “But our sales and marketing team has grown so significantly over the past few years that we found we were outgrowing that space. Creating an inviting and collaborative environment that comfortably accommodates our team yet allows for future growth guided our design strategy. We are excited for our office to once again become a hub for business activity that draws in our clients and encourages them to engage with our sales agents.”

In addition to providing more space for team members to convene, the newly built-out 5,000-sq. ft. headquarters provides Damianos Sotheby’s International Realty agents with the opportunity to better serve their clients as well as the thriving communities around New Providence.

“When we set out to identify our new location, we did so very mindfully,” Rademaker said. “Our goal was not only to build a modern new head office, but to create a second home for our team members that would encourage gathering, professional development and the cultivation of relationships both internally and externally.  Investing in an environment that inspires career advancement and peak performance is what defines our corporate culture.

DAMIANOS SOTHEBY’S INTERNATIONAL REALTY ANNOUNCES RECORD-BREAKING YEAR FOR FIRST HALF OF 2021

NASSAU, The Bahamas (June 28, 2021) — Built-up demand, amplified digital marketing efforts and excellence in all aspects of customer service have added up to a record-breaking six months so far this year for Damianos Sotheby’s International Realty.

“At the beginning of 2021, we were hopeful that our market would experience signs of recovery due to the easing of local restrictions and the reopening of international travel,” said Lana Rademaker, Chief Brokerage Officer for the real estate firm. “However, the level of activity throughout The Bahamas since January has far exceeded our expectations and has broken all previous years’ sales records. Inventory is at a historical low and demand remains very strong, especially in the luxury markets. “

Rademaker added that Damianos Sotheby’s International Realty has experienced a 300% increase in sales volume YTD over 2020 and has achieved a new history-making average sales price of $2,700,000.

“Properties in highest demand have been those located in top tier luxury gated communities like Lyford Cay, Old Fort Bay and Ocean Club Estates. We are also experiencing a surge in condo sales, vacation homes and vacant land investments from both local and international purchasers. While Nassau was the first market to feel the turnaround, activity in Abaco, Eleuthera and Exuma soon followed with sales activity now at unprecedented levels,” Rademaker said.

The vacation rental market has also seen accelerated growth in 2021.

“Prior to 2020, our rental business was typically seasonal, with the bulk of inquiries coming in during winter and holidays like spring break,” Rademaker said. “But we saw virtually no decline in inquiries throughout 2020, and 2021 is looking much the same. With the popularity and ease of working and attending school remotely these days, buyers are taking the option to rent for a few months to get a real feel for the communities where they’re considering purchasing.”

Another stellar boon for the company’s bottom line in 2021 has been its strategic partnership with Baha Mar to exclusively represent Baha Mar Residences, the only Caribbean residential ownership project featuring impeccable turnkey residences by two acclaimed hotel brands: Rosewood Hotels & Resorts and SLS Baha Mar. This alliance has catapulted Damianos Sotheby’s International Realty listings volume to $925 million YTD.

“Working with Baha Mar has been the most impactful strategic move we’ve made in the 76-year history of our company, with the exception of becoming a Sotheby’s International Realty franchise in 2005,” Rademaker said.  “We cannot be more pleased to have been awarded the honor of exclusively representing these extraordinary residences.”

Rademaker also attributes this year’s phenomenal sales numbers to the company’s culture which emphasizes innovation, professionalism and market expertise,  attracting the most elite real estate professionals in The Bahamas and resulting in the highest caliber of service for clients.

“Despite the challenges and obstacles faced in 2020, our team pivoted and persevered, capitalizing on the enduring relationships we’ve cultivated with our clients over many years, and I think this set a strong foundation for us as we entered 2021,” said Rademaker. “Instead of entering the year at a deficit, we simply built on the steady flow of business we maintained throughout 2020.  As the leading real estate brokerage in The Bahamas, Damianos Sotheby’s International Realty continues to grow in strength and numbers. Developing, mentoring and nurturing our team members are top priorities for our leadership team, and that’s reflected in our remarkable track record of success.”

Damianos Sotheby’s International Realty has been an industry leader since 1945 specializing in the listing, marketing and sale of luxury and waterfront properties.

MACK ALTIDOR JOINS DAMIANOS SOTHEBY’S INTERNATIONAL REALTY AS AN ESTATE AGENT

NASSAU, The Bahamas (June 7, 2021) — George Damianos, Chief Executive Officer for Damianos Sotheby’s International Realty, and Lana Rademaker, Chief Brokerage Officer, are pleased to announce the addition of  Mack Altidor to the sales team in Nassau.

Most recently a sales agent with the luxury  condominium project One Ocean Bahamas on Paradise Island, Altidor has a strong sales record cultivated over the course of his 12-year tenure in real estate, along with deep community ties in both Nassau and Abaco.

“With both the Abaco and Nassau markets seeing unprecedented activity since the start of the year,  Mack is a natural fit for our sales team,” Rademaker said. “Mack’s integrity, work ethic and dedication to the client experience are in full alignment with the proactive, transparent and collaborative culture we actively nurture among our team members.” 

In addition to his successful track record with One Ocean Bahamas, Altidor  worked at The Bakers Bay Golf and Ocean Club in Great Guana Cay Abaco, Bahamas, and was a leading sales manager at Schooner Bay Village on Great Abaco. During this time in Abaco, in 2013, Altidor led an effort to help restore lives of the people in the Haitian Villages after they were devastated by a string of fire incidents that burned down their villages in Marsh Harbour and Sandbanks. He is also regularly involved in annual back-to-school fundraisers and food drives. In 2019, Altidor spearheaded an effort which assisted in the search and rescue of persons that were listed as missing after Hurricane Dorian, an effort that ultimately reunited 200 families. Altidor’s ongoing community work and mentorship has also assisted 14 young men and counting in their pursuit of higher education.

“Mack epitomizes integrity, energy, hard work and creative services in every aspect of his career and personal life,” Rademaker said. “It’s these long-lasting meaningful relationships that make Mack not only successful in sales but an outstanding and admirable member of our community.”

Damianos Sotheby’s International Realty Grows Sales Team In Key Markets

NASSAU, The Bahamas (March 17, 2021) — George Damianos, Chief Executive Officer for Damianos Sotheby’s International Realty, and Lana Rademaker, Chief Brokerage Officer, are pleased to announce the addition of three new estate agents: Colleen Carey, who will be based in the Harbour Island office in Eleuthera, Scott Ferguson, who will be based in Treasure Cay, Abaco, and Candis Lakin who will join the sales team in Nassau.

“We’ve seen an increase in activity in all markets since travel restrictions began to lift in January,” Rademaker said. “Eleuthera, including Harbour Island and Spanish Wells, has been a particularly active market over the past six months with a strong demand for turnkey beachfront homes and oceanfront estates. We are also very encouraged by the surge of interest in Abaco properties which will contribute to the ongoing rebuilding efforts post-Hurricane Dorian.

Formerly a co-owner of Studio Ohana in Nassau, Carey has returned to The Bahamas after spending a period of time in the U.S.

“The Harbour Island market is a unique one, even among other luxury markets,” Rademaker said. “It’s an intimate, sophisticated community where discretion and curating long-term relationships are highly valued. Colleen’s natural ability to make deep connections with those around her and her knack for instantly making them feel comfortable make her an excellent fit for this tight-knit community. ”

Ferguson, also a native Bahamian, has been a longstanding successful member of the Abaco business community for decades taking part in a variety of industries including retail, passenger marine transport and construction/development.

“Scott has an extensive personal and professional network and is well-respected as a businessman throughout The Bahamas,” Rademaker said. “He sincerely enjoys being involved in his community and is extremely focused on helping businesses rebuild and thrive throughout Abaco.”

Lakin has spent the past 10  years cultivating her knowledge of Nassau’s highest-end luxury markets while managing marketing strategy and client relations as an Executive Assistant for company owner and Chief Executive Officer George Damianos and top producer, Nick Damianos.

“Candis’ daily interaction with some of our company’s most high-net-worth clients over the years has offered her a unique perspective on our business and the relationships we’ve spent decades nurturing,” Rademaker said. “Her insight into this unique segment of our client base and her extensive understanding of their needs means she’ll hit the ground running as a sales agent. We’re extremely supportive of this new career path she’s chosen.”
