A local professional broker will investigate every available property to find the perfect one for you, your family or your business. 

With a strong economy, glorious beaches, coral reefs and a tropical island setting, the Cayman Islands is a dream destination for both vacations and for work. The territory has the highest standard of living in the Caribbean, great infrastructure and a tax-free economy that attracts foreign residents and wealth from all over the world.

A new resident arriving here on a two- or three-year contract is likely to be looking for a rental property – at least initially. While many residents later look into buying, either as an investment or because they decide to make a permanent home here in the Cayman Islands, the efficient and fast-moving rental property market gives them easy and hassle-free entry, thanks to a large, transient expatriate population and the real estate market that has developed to service the demand.  

With the assistance of a professional real estate agent, a new resident relocating to the islands is going to find the process very straightforward. Operating under the Cayman Islands’ unique CIREBA  regulatory body, local real estate brokers are trained professionals that operate under a strict code of ethics. Members of CIREBA manage the vast majority of Grand Cayman real estate rentals, sharing listings in the online Multiple Listings System (MLS) that allows clients access to all available properties while still using the agent of their choice.

While a new resident might be tempted to ‘go it alone’ in such an efficient and well-regulated market, a CIREBA real estate agent brings a lot more to the table than a pile of property listings. A professional broker has an enormous amount of local knowledge, well-established contacts in the legal and financial sectors, and knows contractors, property managers and service companies – all available as part of the overall service.

Your CIREBA agent will also know the most suitable locations for your search, based on your budget, lifestyle preferences, family situation and work. Whether you’re in the market for an apartment or a commercial property for rent in the Cayman Islands, they are able to offer guidance and advice on local facilities, the neighborhoods and – of course – the price you should pay and the terms of the rental agreement.

Relocating to an unfamiliar place is a stressful experience. New residents to the Cayman Islands are faced with a confusing array of choices in accommodation as soon as they start looking at the options. Helping clients sift through the available houses, condos, villas, apartments and business premises of all sizes in many locations, with many lifestyle options and prices to suit every income, an experienced CIREBA broker helps new arrivals painlessly make the right decisions and helps ease them into a new life in this Caribbean paradise.
