ST JOHN’S, Antigua – The property management firm, Antigua & Barbuda’s Luxury Locations, has been named the best agency in the region and third best in the world.
The Trinidad Guardian reported that the company, located in Jolly Harbour, received the award at the prestigious OPP Awards for Excellence in London last month.
Luxury Locations claimed bronze in the World’s Best Small Agency category and gold for Best Agency in Central America.
The Overseas Property Professionals Awards are held each year to honour the finest agents and developers in 34 categories.
The awards reportedly put Antigua & Barbuda firmly on the map as a major player in the international real estate sector.
Launched in 2004, OPP is the only dedicated trade magazine and website for the international homes industry. The awards are judged each year by a panel of leading experts.
The agency’s founder, Nadia Dyson, told the regional media outlet, “Receiving these awards is a huge honour – particularly at a time when our industry is still recovering from unprecedented global challenges.
“Over the last six months we have seen a welcome surge in large scale developments here in Antigua, plus more sales enquiries than the last five years combined. It’s proof indeed that investor confidence in our islands is well and truly on the up and we can all look forward to continued growth,” Dyson said.
An OPP spokeswoman said Luxury Locations impressed the judges as an “earnest, small agency working hard at building their reputation” in an esoteric market. “We were most impressed by their methodology for ensuring consistent quality and service,” she added.
Luxury Locations, an associate agent of Savills International, sells and manages a diverse portfolio of property throughout the twin-island nation.
