About Monica

With over 12 years of experience assisting families near and far in a broad range of transactions, ranging from remote island parcels to multi-million dollar estates, Monica launched her career in real estate in 2007 – just before property sales took a nosedive after the 2007-2008 global recession. In such a slow market it would have been easy for her to have thrown in the towel, but after a tough slough, each year she committed to absorbing as much knowledge as possible about real estate trends locally and globally and the luxury property market.

Nearly a decade later, that dedication has paid off. After consecutively listing and selling million dollar properties, she netted a high profile sale that catapulted her to the firm’s Top Producer in 2016.

“Prices across the board have stabilized, so buyers who have been on the fence realize that the time to buy is now. The fire sale is over and distressed properties have been sold, so the current market is trending upwards. There is room for negotiations, so savvy buyers and sellers are listening to their realtors and sealing amazing and favorable deals.”

My focus is on the client’s needs and delivering an exceptional home selling or buying experience with integrity, expertise, teamwork and personality.

Philosophy: I am a highly motivated professional who is committed to providing superior customer service with sound real estate advice. Born and raised in the Bahamas, it is my sincere pleasure to help all persons seeking real estate services.

The Bahamas

Starting 55 miles off the coast of South Florida and stretching as far south as Inagua, just 60 miles from Cuba, Haiti and the Dominican Republic, The Bahamas is a coral archipelago of 700 islands, 29 of which are inhabited, and over 2,000 rocks and cays.

With a population of some 320,000 people, most of whom live on the major islands (New Providence, Grand Bahama, Eleuthera, Abaco, Exuma, Long Island, Inagua, Cat Island, Bimini and Andros), and with an adult literacy rate of 95%, The Bahamas has a capable and adaptable work force.

The Bahamas, an English speaking country which gained its independence from Britain on July 10, 1973, is one of the most politically stable countries; a parliamentary democracy has operated without interruption for 275 years.

The Bahamas has comprehensive and modern infrastructure, particularly on the two major islands, New Providence and Grand Bahama, where most of the population live. There is a reliable and adequate supply of Electricity and water. Telecommunications services and facilities in The Bahamas are state-of-the-art, with direct international links provided through a 100% digital switching system.

The economy of The Bahamas is driven by tourism and international banking and other financial services. Retail and wholesale distributive trades, manufacturing, agriculture and fisheries are the other major sectors of the economy. The Gross Domestic Product (GDP) of The Bahamas exceeds $6 billion, 60% of which comes from tourism related activities. The per capita income of the country is approximately $20,000 per annum, one of the highest in the Caribbean region.

The Bahamas is an independent monetary entity. The Bahamian dollar is on par with the U.S. dollar.

There are no income, inheritance, capital gains or corporate taxes in The Bahamas.
