Exclusive Seller Services
Elite Properties offers specialized services to Owners interested in selling their properties in the Dutch and/or French Lowlands of St. Maarten/St. Martin.
After a successful banking career in the USA, John Lemacks joined his wife Dale Dawson in what became one of the most successful real estate sales offices in Hilton Head Island, South Carolina. Since the early 1990’s they have been involved in every aspect of real estate in both the French Lowlands and the Dutch Lowlands - buying, selling, building and developing.
John has gained an understanding of the complexities of these markets as well as a unique understanding of exactly who the prospective buyers are and how to market to them. If you are serious about selling your Lowlands property you can be assured that everyone at Elite Properties will use this knowledge and expertise to expedite the sale of your property and complete a smooth and successful transaction for you.
In addition to aggressive and targeted marketing for the sale of your property, Elite will use its constant market presence, knowledge and expertise to assist you in pricing your property competitively in the marketplace.
Real estate transactions are different in St. Maarten. In the United States and some parts of Europe we’re used to an organized MLS system which makes it easy to understand the market and the values. Here there is no organized system listing everything that is for sale or of recording market transactions. Therefore, it’s difficult to know what other properties are competing with yours and also very difficult to find information on past sales which is critical to knowing the true value of your property. Once again John and everyone at Elite Properties will put their years of experience and intimate knowledge of the real estate markets, on both the French side and the Dutch side, to work for you.
But finding the right buyer is just the start. John has gained invaluable knowledge of the different forms of ownership, tax laws and financing details for both sides of the island. He and everyone at Elite Properties will use this expertise to help your buyer make these complex decisions and finance their purchase if necessary, expediting the process for everyone involved.
And obviously a critical part of any real estate transaction is the closing process. Over the years John has gained the respect of and worked closely with all of the professionals you will need to complete your successful transaction – in either country.
