2013 saw a marked increase in activity in the ultra-high-end market. Our president, George Damianos, sold several private islands and estates for prices above $20M.


While the market in the Bahamas is gaining momentum, it is still a buyer’s market where outstanding properties are available at attractive prices. Our 2013 numbers surpassed 2012, and our focus for 2014 will remain on the luxury home market throughout our islands. We will also focus on upscale condominium offerings where headache-free living on the ocean is the dream.
