Lady of Luxury, Monica Knowles, Blazing a Trail in Bahamian Real Estate

The Bahamas real estate market is climbing from the ashes after the tremors of the economic recession in 2008 when buyers and sellers hopelessly looked into the future. The past 2-3 years have shown that a potential rebound in the housing market is imminent; particularly those in the million + range. The market has been in favor of prospective homebuyers for some time now, as there are more properties for sale than there are buyers to purchase them. Recent trends have made it possible for homebuyers to own their piece of paradise much sooner than later.

Trailblazing sales agent at Bahamas Realty, Monica Knowles, inspires her clients to never hesitate to take advantage of great opportunities in a buyers market. Entering her career as an ambitious, avant-garde receptionist in a small boutique firm on Paradise Island during the economic crisis, to asserting herself as an authority in the Bahamian luxury real estate market Knowles knows a thing or two about personal triumph and is helping her clients celebrate such achievements by closing sales of fabulous homes.

Nothing costs you more than a missed opportunity, said Knowles when discussing her most recent close of a stunning $7.5M harbour-front property in Ocean Club Estates. Ocean Club Estates continues to be the leader in the luxury home community. I am very grateful to represent some of the most beautiful properties and homes on the island. Buyers gravitate towards Ocean Club due to its unsurpassed beauty being nestled perfectly in the easternmost end of Paradise Island, its borders being the gorgeous beach and harbour-front, wonderful amenities such as golfing, boating, fine dining and entertainment with a high level of security, she said. Knowles attributes the intimacy and comfort of luxury island living, coupled with the ability to experience all of the amenities of Atlantis and the opulent One and Only resorts as one of the greatest selling points of the community.

Knowles said she is always enthused when handing over the keys to her clients for their new homes and seeing the joyful and satisfied looks on their faces. It is so rewarding for me to help persons and families secure a home that they will enjoy for many years to come. My goal as an agent is to listen to the needs of each individual, then do all the work necessary to produce the positive end result of home ownership. Sellers are satisfied to receive professional representation and maximum exposure in a highly competitive buyers market.

After catching the real estate bug and hitting the ground running early on in her career, Knowles has since created innovative ways to engage prospective homebuyers at a time when even the most experienced realtors faced immense challenges into closing sales. In response to the markets desire for instant information on high quality listings, Knowles launched her own realty website, last year. Brimming with information beneficial to buyers and sellers, the site has been an invaluable touchpoint and information resource. As a consummate professional with 8 years of experience, most of Knowles business comes from referrals. The website has been very successful in generating a consistent and growing reach online to a wider international audience, by providing new listings, insights and information to clients all just a quick swipe away.

Buying and selling real estate in our beautiful Bahamas is always an exciting process. Although the market is still rebounding in many ways, there are many new developments that are raising the bar in offering elevated lifestyles, said Knowles. Based on historical sales data, Knowles predicts that the market will continue trending upward and the successes of her recent multi-million dollar home sales are clear evidence of this uptick. The name Monica Knowles is becoming well known in the Bahamas luxury market, as her working portfolio and expertise in this luxury home sector continues to grow.
