The Sale of Morne Jaloux - Successfully Working with The Grenadines Collection
All in all my dealing with The Grenadines Collection was a thoroughly
positive experience and I would, without reservation, recommend them to
anyone wishing to sell their Caribbean property.
Almost at my wits end I was contacted by Meg Crosthwaite of The
Grenadines Collection who felt that they could be of benefit to me in
selling my individual non-typical Caribbean property. From the outset I
found Meg, Alan and the 'Grenadines' team to be approachable,
knowledgeable, informed, dynamic, co-operative, flexible and
professional in their dealings with me and my product. Meg would always
make herself available for consultation, discussion, brain storming,
suggestions, ideas or just plain listening. And that for me was one of
the most important factors in my enjoyable and successful relationship
with The Grenadines Collection – their willingness to both listen to and
'hear' what I had to say.
As anyone selling a 'mid-bracket' property will tell you this is the
market worse hit by the recession of 2008 and the more so in typically
'slow' areas such as the Caribbean. I had my property on the market with
local agents for well over a year and ,not only did I not receive any
enquiries during that time, the level of marketing and dynamism of these
local agents was both pathetic and extremely frustrating. This is in
marked contrast to The Grenadines Collection!
I felt able to trust them implicitly to deal with any
co-brokerages/sub-agents knowing that they would be consistent and
conscientious in their contact with, and gentle pressure applied to,
those parties. In addition I felt reassured that my property was
receiving international marketing that was above and beyond anything
local agents could, or were willing to, offer even when they had, so
called, tie-ins with UK based international agents such as Hamptons,
Knight Frank, etc. In addition I could always rely on a positive
response to any and all requests to coordinate and adjust contracts,
As mentioned above my property was not typically 'sun, sea and sand' and
thus hard to market but I was thrilled with the marketing approach of
The Grenadines team, not least in the re-branding and subsequent
development of both a fantastic dedicated web site and downloadable
brochure. They were also able to procure features, including double page
spreads, in property magazines which is something only a dedicated team
is able to achieve unless you, the seller, are able, and willing, to
spend a disproportionate fortune in advertising to achieve a similar

For many in our party of seven, this was our first sailing trip, a
birthday present for my father-in-law, and our maiden voyage was on The
Friendship Rose, Bequia's flower. It was three excursions for the price
of one: Moonhole; the surreal Tobago Cays; and the exhilarating ride to
and fro. The crew were magnificent , taking great care to keep us
