The global estate agent brand has expanded into Jamaica by converting Reside Realty into a Sotheby’s International Realty location.
Sotheby’s International Realty has announced that Reside Realty will join the Sotheby’s network and operate as Sotheby’s International Realty. This new expansion marks Sotheby’s International Realty continued growth in the Caribbean region after recently expanding into St. Kitts & Nevis. This new addition marks the brand’s 30th location in the Caribbean.
Jamaica Sotheby’s International Realty is owned and operated by Julian Dixon and Alexander Melville who bring a collective 27 years of experience to the company. The office will be headquartered in the city of Kingston and will service the surrounding island including St. Andrew, Montego Bay, Ocho Rios, and more.
“Jamaica offers a diverse luxury lifestyle which appeals to a wide variety of buyers,” said Philip White, president and CEO, Sotheby’s International Realty.
“In recent years, closed transactions have seen steady growth and new construction is booming on the island. The Jamaican market has historically appreciated year after year with interest from domestic and international interest in North America, Europe, Canada, and most recently the Middle East, motivated by the island’s many opportunities and its tourism sector.
“I want to welcome Julian and her team to the network and look forward to working together to support the island.”
The office currently has several sales associates supporting the island with plans for continued growth.
“Jamaica is famous for the tagline ‘no problem’ and this is true of the culture and lifestyle,” said Dixon.
“I have always admired the Sotheby’s International Realty brand and their philosophy towards client satisfaction connects with our culture and mission. The island offers promise to buyers seeking opportunities through business ventures, vacation homes, retirement, and income-earning properties.
“Our affiliation with Sotheby’s International Realty will be the first of its kind on the island and will bring value, excitement, and global recognition to our market.”
