Broker’s Note

The market has been the talk of the town for the past year. With construction booming in Jamaica, whether you are in the market for a property or not, there is no ignoring what is happening on this island. High rise residential buildings keep going up and selling out during the pre-construction phase. Solid real estate investors have their agents searching for commercial properties that offer a great return.

Jamaica is experiencing a seller’s market. Inventory is limited and prices are competitive. This is when you need the best possible agent. Today’s realtor needs to be knowledgeable of the constant changing variables and be able to forecast those indicators both in the short and long term. If you are buying a property for the first time, you probably have a lot of questions. Where should I buy? What should I buy? What will be the best use and value for my money? Who should I choose as my realtor?

I am proud of our team at Coldwell Banker. We have a network of almost 100 realtors who are trained, professional and know the marketplace in both sales and rentals throughout different pockets of the island. Coldwell Banker Jamaica Realty is backed by an amazing international brand and through our franchise we are able to offer a host of services to both the buyer and the seller, including a marketing package that starts with this magazine.

Some of my favourite days of the year are when we receive the shipment of KÚYA magazines in our office and start getting them ready for distribution. While we enjoy selling real estate, what we enjoy mostly is exposing clients to this beautiful island. Nothing is sweeter than visiting a property and seeing an issue of KÚYA in place on a coffee table or even tucked away in a bathroom. The sight of KÚYA means that we have left our mark and hopefully made an impression to a client or future client.

Please enjoy this keepsake magazine, which we hope will give you an update on some cool stuff happening in and around Jamaica, in addition to showcasing some fantastic properties for sale. Our website is the best place to go to for the latest listings and also, don’t forget to follow us on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram @cbjrealty and @kuyamagazine for information on sales, rentals, open houses and much more!

Until next time, walk good!
