Our 2014 HGTV “Beachfront Bargain Hunt” Debut…stay tuned for more to come in early 2015

Kim Lucas, USVI Sotheby’s International Realty, featured on HGTV’s “Beachfront Bargain Hunt”

Kim Lucas was recently featured on the Home and Garden Television (HGTV) Network program “Beachfront Bargain Hunt” which initially aired on June 29, 2014, with subsequent re-runs throughout the season. The program highlights couples who are searching for a waterfront or water view home to purchase for around $350,000.

In this episode, a young, hardworking couple (Lee and Lana) intended to move to the Caribbean to slow down a bit and enjoy their lives. They wanted to be on or near the beach, and preferred a single family home to a condominium. They had vacationed in St Croix and knew this was the place they wanted to live.   Kim showed them several properties and they purchased a home with a really nice view and in close proximity to several nice beaches. This has been wonderful exposure for St Croix!

Our 2014 HGTV “Caribbean Life” Debut…stay tuned for more to come in early 2015

Chris Hanley, USVI Sotheby’s International Realty, featured on HGTV’s “Caribbean Life”

Chris Hanley was recently featured on the Home and Garden Television (HGTV) show “Caribbean Life” during sneak preview episodes aired New Year’s Day. The program follows couples and families as they leave the U.S. mainland and move to the Caribbean.

In one episode, Hanley helped guide a growing family to their ideal home. The Sommers have three young sons and were tired of renting. After filming and with the help of Chris, the Sommers family found their perfect home complete with ocean view, pool and lawn on which their kids can play.

In a second episode, young couple Corinne Farinola and Patrick Kralik were looking to buy a condo. They hoped for an ocean view and community recreation facilities. Chris showed them properties and the couple purchased close to where they both work. The “Caribbean Life” episodes filmed on St. Croix aired again on HGTV February 9, 2014 and has truly been fabulous exposure and promotion for our beloved island St. Croix.
