NEW YORK, Oct. 7, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Sotheby’s International Realty today announced that Reside Realty Ltd. has joined the network and will now operate as Jamaica Sotheby’s International Realty. The addition marks the brand’s continued growth in the Caribbean and comes at a time of increased interest in secondary and resort markets.

Jamaica Sotheby’s International Realty is owned and operated by Julian Dixon and Alexander Melville who bring a collective 27 years of experience to the company. The office will be headquartered in the city of Kingston and will service the surrounding island including St. Andrew, Montego Bay, Ocho Rios, and more.
"Jamaica offers a diverse luxury lifestyle which appeals to a wide variety of buyers," said Philip White, president and CEO, Sotheby’s International Realty. "In recent years, closed transactions have seen steady growth and new construction is booming on the island. The Jamaican market has historically appreciated year-after-year with interest from domestic and international interest in North America, Europe, Canada, and most recently the Middle East, motivated by the island’s many opportunities and its tourism sector. I want to welcome Julian and her team to the network and look forward to working together to support the island."

"I have always admired the Sotheby’s International Realty brand and their philosophy towards client satisfaction connects with our culture and mission. The island offers promise to buyers seeking opportunities through business ventures, vacation homes, retirement, and income-earning properties. Our affiliation with Sotheby’s International Realty will be the first of its kind on the island and will bring value, excitement, and global recognition to our market."
