The Best Real Estate Agents in The Bahamas

  • Sheldon Pitt

    Sheldon Pitt

    "Sheldon Pitt is from the mystical island of Bimini. As he would describe Bimini, it's "The smallest largest island in The Bahamas". 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 10 years ago in Toronto, Canada where he bought and sold property (better known as house flipping). After many years of working and living in Toronto, where he financed residential and commercial projects of all sizes, he is a veteran in the real estate industry. Upon returning to The Bahamas, and with his love for the real estate industry, he joined the team at Mario Carey Realty (MCR) in early 2011.
    Sheldon's background in house flipping is where he found his passion for real estate. Along with his superior knowledge of the local markets, Sheldon is a single point of contact for all your real estate needs whether you're selling, buying or renting a property. Being an island boy he also has a unique outlook on family island life and knows what a client is looking for when it comes to the family islands. In less than a year in the real estate market in The Bahamas, Sheldon has reached over $1 million in sales. When he is not working with buyers and sellers to find their next dream property, you can find him enjoying outdoor activities such as camping, boating, farming and hiking."

"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."

  • Estate Tax: When a person dies and passes their estate to someone else, whether through a will or according to state law, a tax is placed on the assets.
