Sheldon spent most of his life traveling around the world, from the islands of The Bahamas to living in the United States, Canada, Europe and Central America, where he sailed for many years. Sheldon started his career in real estate 20 years ago in Toronto, Canada where he bought and sold property (better known as house flipping).

Timothy Smith

Timothy Smith was born and raised in Nassau, Bahamas to a respected real estate family. He studied Accounting at Georgia State University graduating with a Bachelor’s in Business Administration. He returned home to accept a post at one of the Big Four accounting firms where he gained insight handling accounts and consulting for diverse clients.

By 2016, Tim did what came naturally – he turned his attention to real estate and was emerging as one of the most productive performers at his real estate firm, Better Homes and Gardens MCR Bahamas Group.

With his outgoing personality and strong work ethic, Timothy is also no stranger to the outdoor life and his love of watersports, fishing and diving. He plays golf and tennis just as he conducts real estate transactions – with competitive spirit and a warm smile.

He credits what he calls “an amazing team spirit” at the firm founded by Mario Carey. At 25, Timothy had already achieved the goal of Top Rookie of the Year in a firm with dozens of agents. Today he has accumulated a large client base, a reflection he says of increasing loyalty based on service, integrity and trust. “Every client I work with, I feel like it’s an honour,” he says.

One year later, in 2019 at 26 years old, Timothy Smith achieved the highest honor in the firm as Overall Top Producer of the Year. He won this award again the year after in 2020.

In 2021, Timothy Smith was appointed as Partner of the firm and has established himself as one of the most respected Real Estate agents in The Bahamas.

Elizabeth Weech

Liz combines her love for education with her passion for property ownership in her dedicated approach to real estate. “Growing up in Jamaica, my family wasn’t able to purchase a home. I became consumed by the dream of home ownership at a young age. That passion still drives me, it’s in my blood. I bought my first home at 27, scared and clueless. It’s one of the best things I’ve ever done.’

Elizabeth represents buyers and sellers with heart; she believes that nothing is more important than her client's success and happiness. It’s about communication, trust,respect and ultimately a great outcome.’ ‘I treat each client and each transaction with the attention and importance it deserves.’

To serve her clients more effectively, Liz has completed professional development courses with the Residential Real Estate Council and the Council of Real Estate Brokerage Managers. She has also attained The Bahamas Realtors Institute designation. Elizabeth pays attention to the details when listing your property on the market and when assessing purchase options. ‘I leverage my contacts in property management to connect my clients to reliable service providers.

"I have been investing in Real Estate in The Bahamas after moving here 10 years ago. I have worked with a number of agents, but I have never been so impressed by someone in The Bahamas until I met Tim Smith. His level of service, his drive and his network of contacts is truly amazing. He knows everyone, and everyone knows him. He has become my go to guy for real estate, he is one of a kind."

"Just for anyone thinking about listing or buying property in The Bahamas. I can only recommend Unni. I could not have been more impressed with her representation for the sale of my lot on Great Guana Cay. She was involved in the clean-up after Hurricane Dorian to make sure that it showed well and kept me aware of any showings that occurred. She was there start to finish. If I should ever look for property in the Bahamas again, I would contact Unni."
