OPP awards won by Luxury Locations Estate Agents AntiguaRepeat victory for Luxury Locations

Another double win at prestigious international property awards

If there’s a better way to start 2015 galvanised and reenergised than more esteemed awards for our dynamic team we’re yet to find it. Luxury Locations was honoured to defend its title as one of the globe’s leading real estate agencies at November’s prestigious Overseas Property Professionals (OPP) Awards in London.

Once again, we fought off challengers from far and wide to reclaim our gong as third best real estate agency in the world – and took home a silver in the regional category for good measure too. The double victory – just five and a half years after setting up business – is a coup d’eclat not just for us but for Antigua & Barbuda too, reinforcing its might on the international stage. Now in their seventh year, the OPP Awards reward the “best and brightest” stars in the overseas residential property industry. Entrants in 38 categories were judged by a panel of experts with winners presented with their trophies at a glittering ceremony at Novotel London West on November 28.

For us, the awards were the crowning glory on a string of successes in an exceptionally auspicious year. Last summer saw Luxury Locations facilitate the land sale for the country’s first mega resort – a development slated to be worth US$3bn over the next decade. And one of our exclusive listings – the US$250m Pearns Point resort and residential project – earned a spot in Elite Traveler magazine’s round-up of the world’s best developments. Sales continue to progress for Pearns Point, tipped to become one of the globe’s most exclusive addresses. Meanwhile, all signals point to another buoyant year ahead for our property industry. We were delighted to take on two more major exclusives in the shape of the acclaimed Tamarind Hills development along with homes at the Blue Waters resort as we bolster our position as market leaders.

OPP AwardsLuxury Locations’ CEO Sam Dyson said: “Momentum continues to build in key housing markets worldwide which is great news for investors everywhere. With prices still relatively low here – and the holiday rental market doing better than ever – more and more people are choosing Antigua to buy a second home.”

Company founder Nadia Dyson said: “Antigua is hard to beat on price. There are few places in the world that you can still buy a waterfront property with a boat dock in a desirable gated community with excellent amenities for just US$250,000.  “Over the last year we have experienced an unprecedented level of sales. Coupled with the surge in interest from large-scale developers, all indications are that a bright future is ahead.”
