Global real estate brand expands presence in the Caribbean with new location led by local businessman and politician Washington Misick
Engel & Völkers today announced the opening of its first shop in Turks and Caicos, on the island of Providenciales. Prestigious Properties, the territory’s largest real estate brokerage, will now do business as Engel & Völkers Turks and Caicos. It will continue to be led by esteemed local businessman and politician Washington Misick, along with Phillip Misick, company shareholder and director, and Chuck Misick, company director and licensed real estate advisor. The new shop will be situated on the picturesque Grace Bay and service all Turks and Caicos Islands, including Providenciales, Grand Turk, North Caicos, Middle Caicos, South Caicos and Salt Cay.
“The real estate market in Turks and Caicos has seen tremendous growth over a short period of time,” said Anthony Hitt, president & CEO, Engel & Völkers Americas. “The islands are easily accessible, gaining huge attraction from feeder markets in the northeast of the U.S., Miami and Charlotte, yet provide a peaceful and private upscale environment. The miles of pristine beaches, warm climate and economic conveniences that come with being a British Overseas Territory make Turks and Caicos uniquely desirable to international buyers. Washington, Phillip, Chuck and their entire team embody the passion for excellence that defines Engel & Völkers.”
Washington Misick has over 40 years of real estate experience and has served in several positions within parliament, most notably as Chief Minister from 1991-95 and Minister of Finance, Trade and Investment from 2012-16. Phillip Misick is a developer and professional real estate consultant with over 30 years of experience, and Chuck Misick is a certified architectural technologist and construction manager with nearly a decade of experience as a licensed real estate agent.
“Our business has a highly successful track record, but being aware of global trends, we knew we needed to gain access to a powerful international network in order to best serve today’s home buyers and sellers here in Turks and Caicos,” said Washington Misick. “Paired with its unmatched standards of personalized service, Engel & Völkers offers our listings critical global exposure, especially as we see demand for condos, villas and vacation homes steadily increase across the islands. As our market is poised for growth, the time is right to affiliate with Engel & Völkers.”
