Sunrise Bay

Sunrise Bay in Marsh Harbour is one of the newer developments in the heart of Marsh Harbour, Abaco  and offers many coveted features. Blissfully peaceful and quiet, this gated community development has underground utilizes, paved roads a community beach and probably the most exciting feature is the private marina. The location of Sunrise Bay is on the eastern side of Marsh Harbour allowing for a quick 15 minute boat ride to Elbow Cay or Man-O-War Cay. It’s only a few minute car ride to the supermarket, restaurants, marinas etc. Convenience is all around but the community is tucked away and offers much privacy.

If you are looking for a property in a desired area such as Sunrise Bay I have 3 great options for you. Click here to view the property that has a partially completed foundation and may be just the ticket for a contractor looking for a project to complete for future resale. This link will entice those looking for the ideal location to build their retirement home. Running road to road and nicely elevated, sea views can be enjoyed from this large lot. For those wanting a marina view click here  .  A vacant parcel looking towards the marina and community beach area. Due to the layout of the development you will have unobstructed views of the Sea of Abaco.

An option for everyone. Email or call today and let me show you the way to owning a piece of Abaco real estate.

I wish everyone a happy and productive Monday tomorrow. Make it a great week people.

Amazing View

There are a lot of buyers out there who value quiet and peaceful surroundings. Those who say to me "I live in a big city. When I come here I don't want so much hustle and bustle." But yet they want something nice and if they can't afford direct waterfront they at least want a view.

Well have I got the property for one of those buyers! This house is in a quiet area but only minutes from Cherokee Sound, the luxurious Abaco Club on Winding Bay and Little Harbour. Commands awesome views and is priced to sell!

I'm just going to quit talking and let you see for yourself.  CLICK HERE TO SEE THIS LOVELY PROPERTY

Well ok, here's a photo showing the view of the gorgeous double crested beach of Winding Bay...A million dollar view but not a million dollar price tag!

Email or call me 242-577-0120

I will be excited to show you the way to be the new proud owner.

Man-O-War All Age School's Annual Flea Market

Well it would seem it was a success again this year. The ferry boat loads full of people mingled in with the second home owners on Man-O-War and the locals, this made quite a crowd. All are very anxious to support the school and lend a hand. Not too mention sift thru the many tables of crafts, food goodies, dinner items and just plain old STUFF. I guess it's true. One man's junk is another man's treasure.

One of the popular tables there is always 'The Pantry'. They sell a bunch of delicious items from hot cheese dips, to chutneys and jelly and varieties of bread. Definitely one of the stops I make. The ladies who have chosen to make Man-O-War a second home for themselves and participate at this table, and all around are greatly appreciated.

The next big event for the island will be the first weekend in April. April 2nd will be out heritage day which we call Sojer Day.  I serve on this committee and enjoy working wiht this great group of people. ACtually Friday night will be the opening event but Saturday will be the big day. We're going to have everything form food, crafts, the May Pole (yes  in April), games form the kids, a Museum and much more.

Stay tuned as the day approaches for more updates.

Exceptional Property Named Home of the Year

Wow! What an exciting way to start the New Year. Tilloo Pond, an enchanting  island estate in the Bahamas, has grabbed the Home of the Year award in the $5-$10M category of Unique Homes Magazine.
As the exclusive listing agent for this treasure of a home in Abaco in the northwestern Bahamas, I’m just thrilled.
The staff of Unique Homes had the challenging task of selecting 40 homes from 1,000 pages of prestigious properties, covering four price categories! The public was then asked to vote.
I’m not surprised Tilloo Pond won by a large margin. After all, it has all the bells and whistles of a luxurious home set against a beautiful island backdrop.
Spanning 11 acres of sea to sea property, it has its own beach, protected private dock and a day dock on the Sea of Abaco.  The uniquely designed home has a beautiful vaulted ceiling fashioned from carved, wooden beams. It boasts exquisite furnishings and high end finish work, including granite countertops, Travertine tile and exotic hardwood. With unparalleled views, what more could you ask for?

Congratulations to the owner of ‘Tilloo Pond’ for winning top honors! Whoever buys this gem has a lot to look forward to.

Nice Start

This year has started off rather interesting. I put a great little cottage under contract the first day back to work for the new year, closed on a transaction and have had multiple offers. That combined with the numerous inquiries flowing in every day give me great confidence in 2011 and what it has in store for us.

Stay tuned for more blogs and up to date happenings in the market. I am making a commitment to spend more time on my blog so you can know just what is going on here in Abaco.

Want your property SOLD?

For those sellers out there who seriously want their property to sell here's the first thing you need to do. Talk to your Coldwell Banker agent today about helping you realistically price your property. A buyer sometimes will  not even opt to see your home if it is overpriced, assuming you have unrealistic expectations.

Your agent will be familiar with the current market conditions and can show you comparables and guide you with pricing it fairly. A property grabs the most attention when it first hits the market. If not priced correctly you are loosing out on showing your home to potential qualified buyers. Remember any one needing financing will not receive it for a property if the price is more than the appraised value.

An overpriced listing sits on the market and becomes stale causing buyers to ask the famous question, 'what's wrong with this house?'

If you are a serious buyer and would like more information on listing your home please email me at or call me at my office 242-367-2992.

My Above and Beyond Award

Hi Folks,

It was a nice surprise to come in at the beginning of the week and find that the actual Above and Beyond Award  that I won a few months ago from Coldwell Banker had arrived. It's very pretty and I am honored to have been chosen to receive it. It gives me pleasure just to know that I can brighten up someone's day by going the extra mile in whatever it is I'm doing for them. I don't need an award but am very humbled to have received it.

I thought I'd post a picture of it :)
