Heather Carrigan joined Cayman Islands Sotheby’s International Realty in 2005, before the company had joined the Sotheby’s International Realty family; at that time it was still a small boutique firm called Sheena Conolly Real Estate. She was excited to join a company that is dedicated to forward thinking and is set on changing the real estate experience in the Cayman Islands. Heather brought with her a wealth of sales and customer service experience on a global scale, primarily from a hotel management background with Canadian Pacific hotels, now Fairmont hotels across Canada, then joining Starwood hotels where she was the Director of Sales and Catering, then with the Westin Casaurina Resort and Spa in the Cayman Islands for close to six years. Originally from Cobourg, Ontario, Canada, a small town about an hour east of Toronto, she decided to trade the cold Canadian winters for the sun soaked beaches and warm Caribbean waters of the Cayman Islands in 1997.
In her 8 years of Real Estate experience in the Cayman Islands she didn’t waste any time getting her feet wet, she hit the ground running, being the top producing realtor with Cayman Islands Sotheby’s International Realty each year consecutively. She was also awarded the prestigious Cayman Islands Real Estate Brokers Associations (CIREBA) Agent of the Year award, by her peers in 2009 after only four short years of being in the business. Heather loves to stay active in the local community as well as the real estate community and has also just recently been elected onto the CIREBA Board of Directors in 2013.
Heather has built her reputation and customer base in the industry by focusing on a dedication to customer service, an enthusiastic work ethic, a commitment to developing relationships with her customers and peers, as well as going above and beyond expectations, which has truly helped her in establishing a very strong repeat clientele and referral network. To this day she still thinks there is nothing more rewarding than to be sitting at the closing table with an thrilled buyer and seller both ready to start the new chapters in their lives and the excitement and smiles when the keys are handed over. In her words “it makes everything I do all worthwhile, and that never gets old.”
With the help of the fantastic branding of Sotheby’s International Realty, Heather feels Cayman Islands Sotheby’s International realty as a company is making great strides to bring the Cayman Islands real estate product to the world. We strive daily to bring a global presence to what we do and illustrate to the world the quality of the product we have in the Cayman Islands. Our islands compete head on in the worldwide marketplace in regards to value, quality, lifestyle, infrastructure and of course weather.
Heather’s professionalism and in depth knowledge of the Cayman market allows her to work in all price ranges island-wide, from the most ultra luxury property listed in the Cayman Islands to local land lots and everything in-between, she prides herself in working at all levels of the industry. Whether a first time purchaser, the most exclusive home on the island, an investor buyer or a single land lot; you can count on her giving you her all. Heather is a people person with a tireless work ethic; she prides herself in developing strong relationships with her purchasers and vendors alike.
In Doug and Katy Wech’s words “Investing in property in Grand Cayman was an actual pleasure with your delightful Ms. Carrigan. We look forward to working with Ms. Carrigan again as additional opportunities present themselves.”
Or from Denny and Gail Cresap, a customer in which Heather assisted in selling two of their properties and buying one all on Seven Mile Beach. “Her professionalism, business conduct and work ethics were excellent. She is a great asset and ambassador for the Cayman Islands with the many people she comes into contact with every day.”
If you are looking for a professional that truly cares and is going to work tirelessly to find you the perfect property or sell your home, Heather would love to hear from you.
