Estates joins this carefully selected organization of brokerages with proven records of success in both high-end property sales and exemplary client service.
“A key Caribbean offshore financial center, the Turks and Caicos Islands are increasingly becoming a desirable second-home destination for many affluent Europeans, Americans, Canadians, and British nationals,” says Jarvis Slade, Managing Director—Americas of Christie’s International Real Estate. “We welcome the opportunity to serve this important residential market through our newest Affiliate, Regency International Estates.”
“We are very pleased to welcome Regency International Estates to our invitation-only Affiliate network,“ said Rick Moeser, Senior Vice President of Christie’s International Real Estate. “Led by Katherine Baryluk and Robert Greenwood, the firm is comprised of seasoned luxury real estate top producers who exemplify the Christie’s International Real Estate standards of quality, expertise, and integrity."
Katherine Baryluk, Owner/Broker of Regency International Estates, says, “Our passion and love for luxury real estate is something that we live and breathe every day. As our world gets smaller by the day, Regency International Estates recognizes the importance of international outreach and personal relationships worldwide. Being part of the incredible Christie’s International Real Estate network is a great opportunity to further our brokerage in the ultra-high-net-worth market, and we are very excited to take on the challenge.”
Long a favored destination for high-net-worth individuals from around the world, the Turks and Caicos are a group of picturesque tropical islands, located approximately 500 miles southeast of Miami. The archipelago’s numerous private islands—such as the star-studded Parrot Cay—are resplendent with pristine white-sand beaches, clear blue waters, secluded bays, and some of the most exceptional beach homes in the Caribbean. Ultra-high-net-worth individuals flock here for peace and quiet with five-star resorts and service, designed to cater to such a clientele with enormous investment benefits. Classified as a British Overseas Territory, the Turks and Caicos are a tax haven with no property, inheritance, or income taxes. With tourism skyrocketing in 2011, the islands are set for a prosperous future in 2012 and beyond.
