A Message from our President
For more than 50 years, licensed agents and brokers of the Bahamas Real Estate Association have been the trusted source of information, providing responsible guidance in the vast range of property transactions from a first home purchase to a fantasy-like private island.
Members of BREA have learned rigorous course work, passed exams, met due diligence standards and adhere to a strict code of conduct. Many hold higher certifications in the luxury market awarded to less than 5% of agents worldwide.
BREA agents and brokers assist locals and residents in every price range and warmly welcome those from abroad who desire to make The Bahamas a part of their dream.
Today, in the age of a pandemic, with greater reliance on a virtual world, engaging the services of a qualified agent or broker is more critical than ever.
Online searches blaze with enticing photos and inviting, tempting views and offers. But beyond the initial search it takes an experienced agent or broker to make sure the dream and reality match. BREA agents make it their business to understand market trends and to know every neighbourhood. They can detail the pros and cons of single home, condo or remote island living. They know the reputation of homeownersâ€™ associations in every condominium development. They understand nuance differences between one gated community and another. They willinglyÂ share information about schools, churches, medical facilities, shopping and dining.
In reality, BREA agents who represent knowledge often become the trusted friend who holds a buyer's hand throughout the process, taking the stress out of financing, legal work and closing.
We often remind people they take their vehicle to a mechanic, their child to a doctor. They even take their tablet or laptop to a computer expert so why would they trust the purchase or sale of any property to anyone but an expert when it is one of the biggest decisions and investments in life?
BREA. Be our guest and experience the professional journey in real estate.
Christine Wallace-Whitfield, President
