New Agent with Islandia Real Estate

Here’s me, giving a thumbs up to the camera, as I accept my Realtor pin!

On Wednesday, July 12 the St. John Board of Realtors hosted it’s mid year meeting at Hawksnest Beach. At the beach pavilion, lunch was provided and camaraderie between St. John real estate agents was shared.

It was an especially exciting day for me as I was inducted as a new member of STJBOR! Myself, along with 4 other new members with different brokerages, were inducted. It was a great chance to get know the other agents on island that I will be working with.

I am extremely excited about this new direction in my career and am ready and willing to be YOUR agent on St. John. Feel free to call, email, text anytime to ask me about St. John real estate, market information, schedule showings or if you have general questions about living on St. John!

Another Festival Season Passes

St. John Festival 2017 came to an end after the parade and final night in the Festival Village on Tuesday, July 4. This year’s parade did not disappoint. It was an amazing seven days of music, dancing, food and local culture. To see more Festival photos and videos, visit the St. John Tradewinds’ Facebook Page.

Now that this year’s Festival celebration has passed, St. John will slow down somewhat as we enter the off season. There will be less visitors to the island which means less rentals which means more homes for sale will be available for showings!

Whether you are here on island or can book your quick summer getaway, give me a call! I am a new agent with the Islandia team and would be happy to show you property on St. John.
