included us in every project and dream they had. In 1985 we built a 50’ Ketch steel sail boat in our front yard and set sail from Africa, across the Atlantic Ocean. After experiencing life in
many different continents, jungles, countries and the diverse cultures, as a young adult, I decided St. Maarten was the place I wanted to settle in. My two beautiful children were born and raised here.
I have watched the island shape into our modern day paradise offering it’s vast array of outdoor living, and the beautiful properties and real estate to fit the life style. Prior to working in the real estate industry, I was in the heavy duty marine propulsion industry, a family company established on St. Martin, between 1991 and 2013, overseeing a large staff of technicians, managing the machine shop and overseeing the rebuilding and repair of diesel propulsion engines and several systems in mega yachts and our local power stations. I have worked in the real estate market as property/ maintenance manager for several years and have overseen some refurbishing projects working closely with contractors to ensure a seamless experience for my clients/property owners. I have extensive knowledge of the vacation rental sector.
