Damianos Sotheby’s International Realty Reports Robust 2018 Residential Real Estate Market

Resort-Style Living. According to Damianos Sotheby’s International Realty, the demand for luxury resort-style properties such as those found on Kamalame Cay (above) saw a significant surge in 2018.

 

Nassau, The Bahamas (Jan. 21, 2019) — According to Damianos Sotheby’s International Realty, 2018 was another healthy year for luxury residential real estate sales with the company’s list price averaging $1.55 million and sales prices averaging $1.4 million.

“Overall, 2018 was a strong year for sales with a slight increase over the 2017 performance,” said Lana Rademaker, Chief Brokerage Officer for the company, noting that there has been a significant increase in demand for homes in the Family Islands. “Markets like Hope Town, Harbour Island, Kamalame Cay, Treasure Cay and Spanish Wells are ideal entry markets into The Bahamas. People come down for holidays and end up returning as buyers.”

Rademaker added that the uptick in visitors and buyers in both Nassau and the Family Island markets can be partially credited to the increased number of direct flights into these markets from the U.S. and Canada. Major carriers such as American Airlines, Air Canada, JetBlue and Delta offer daily flights to The Bahamas and recently announced direct flights from Chicago and Houston to Nassau will offer even more opportunities for easy access to The Bahamas.

“The enviable lifestyle of The Bahamas has always been a major attractor to buyers in addition to the fact that we’re an English-speaking country with a stable economy,” Rademaker said. “And now with even more direct flights to our islands, people are able to get here more conveniently and frequently, making our country a strong choice for those who want to own a vacation home just one flight away.”

Another factor is the growing demand for unique resort-style residential properties such as those found on Kamalame Cay, which is about a 20-minute flight from Nassau.

“We are constantly striving to stay ahead of market trends and seek out distinctive opportunities for our clients,” Rademaker said. “I am proud to announce that one of our top agents, Vanessa Ansell, participated in seven transactions on Kamalame Cay this past year, making it one of the most active periods in the history of the luxury resort. Through her strategic marketing and carefully cultivated relationships, Vanessa has positioned herself as the go-to real estate advisor for Kamalame Cay.”

To further accommodate and more fully service this ever-increasing market activity, Damianos Sotheby’s International Realty expanded their sales team with the addition of two new agents in 2018. In December, the company also opened a new office location on Harbour Island next to the popular Piggly Wiggly food store on King Street, the island’s main thoroughfare.

“Nurturing ongoing client relationships is our number one priority as a company,” Rademaker said. “The more visible we are in the markets we serve, and the more knowledgeable our agents are, the more value we can provide to people whether they are current, past or future clients.”

The company’s ongoing mission to continually seek out ways to better serve their clients was further augmented when the firm hosted a four-day NINJA Selling Conference for their entire company at the Grand Hyatt Convention Center at the Baha Mar Resort in October 2018.

“The conference was an incredible experience,” Rademaker said. “Our entire company gathered together for four days to focus on expanding our knowledge and skills as real estate professionals. Designed to help agents capitalize on their strengths, conquer their goals and transform their business, the content of the NINJA Selling Conference aligned perfectly with our company’s culture.”

New developments like BahaMar, GoldWynn, the Pointe and the soon-to-be redeveloped Hurricane Hole on Paradise Island are also providing exciting new opportunities for buyers in the country’s capital.

“The great thing about The Bahamas is that we’re constantly growing and progressing as a country,” Rademaker said. “There is always new and fresh inventory to explore, which makes it a very exciting market to live in, work in and invest in.”

Damianos Sotheby’s International Realty’s Exclusive Listing Deep Water Cay is Famous for Bonefish and the Celebrities They Attract

Bonefish Paradise. Located about 150 miles northeast of Miami, Deep Water Cay was founded as a private fishing club in 1958 by Palm Beach guide Gil Drake Sr. and Field & Stream editor A.J. McClane. Since then, the resort has become an exclusive escape for public figures and celebrities like newscaster Tom Brokaw, famed actors Liam Neeson and Michael Keaton and Grammy Award-winning singer Huey Lewis.


NASSAU, The Bahamas (Feb. 7, 2018)
— When you hear the names Tom Brokaw, Liam Neeson, Michael Keaton and Huey Lewis, a few things probably come to mind: all have been household names at one time or another; each has received awards for being the best in their respective fields; and, they’re all pretty much recognizable wherever they go. What you probably didn’t realize is that they are all also fisherman—bonefish fisherman to be precise—and have spent time angling in the flats off Deep Water Cay.

Deep Water Cay, a two-square-mile private-island resort located on the eastern end of Grand Bahama Island in The Bahamas, has become almost as famous for its celebrity guests as its bonefish—almost.

“Deep Water Cay is one of the oldest Bahamian bonefish lodges in existence,said George Damianos, President and Managing Broker for Damianos Sotheby’s International Realty which is currently marketing the private island. “The catches made over the years are a part of the resort’s legacy and they’re why Deep Water Cay has evolved into the ultimate Bahamas fishing resort.”

Rated No. 3 on the list of “Top 25 Hotels in the Bahamas” by Caribbean Journal, Deep Water Cay is easily accessible with a 4,200-foot runway with Customs and Immigration available on request for private planes, plus direct flights from the U.S. and Canada into Grand Bahama International Airport (FPO) on several major airlines, including American Airlines, Bahamasair, Delta, Silver Airways and Sunwing.  Founded as a private fishing club in 1958 by Palm Beach guide Gil Drake Sr. and Field & Stream editor A.J. McClane, the resort features 200 square miles of flats, and a fully-equipped marina that can accommodate boats and yachts up to 65 feet.

In addition to its world-class amenities, Deep Water Cay has a close partnership with the Bonefish & Tarpon Trust (BTT). Resort guides tag fish prior to release, and when the fish are caught again, habitat and health data is captured and provided to BTT scientists for study.

“The north shore of Grand Bahama is widely acknowledged as one of the three top locations in the world for big bonefish,” Damianos said. “Between the BTT conservation partnership and Deep Water Cay’s reputation as a best-in-class fishing and luxury resort destination, Deep Water Cay will continue to attract people from all over the world for generations to come.”
