Bahamas Realty Ltd., a premier independent real estate firm, recently announced its further expansion with the addition of two new Sales Associates, Leslie Colclough and Conor Gottlieb. Both Leslie and Conor hail from a legal background.
“We’re very happy to be welcoming Leslie and Conor to our team,” said Donald Martinborough, CEO of Bahamas Realty. “Expanding our firm with new associates is part of our overall plan to continue growing our team and enhancing the quality of service we’re able to offer clients. The whole team was busy all through last year and we expect to keep up that pace – and more – in the future.”
Leslie Colclough, LL. B. (Hons) has made what feels like a natural transition into real estate sales and leasing, bringing years of experience specializing in real estate law, having passed the bar in 1996. Her career saw her work on both residential and commercial transactions both in Nassau and the Family Islands as well as estate planning.
“I’m excited to be able to take a more ‘hands-on’ approach to real estate,” said Leslie. “Coupling my legal background with my love for interior design and home staging gives me the opportunity to offer a unique depth of service to my clients as an agent.”
Conor Gottlieb, LL.B., LL.M. has had an interest in real estate from a young age, a passion he believes stems from the many discussions he had with his father, Frederik Gottlieb, former Member of Parliament and prominent Bahamian attorney specializing in real estate transactions. After having passed the New York Bar Exam, Conor worked at the law firm Graham Thompson in Nassau. After working in one of the country’s most prestigious law firms, Conor’s interest in real estate has lead him to work directly in the industry as a real estate sales agent.
Conor is from the island of Abaco and has an in-depth knowledge of the island and its surrounding cays. Conor will specialize in real estate transactions in Nassau and the Abaco islands.
“I’m looking forward to bringing my local knowledge and real life experience in this side of the market to my business,” said Conor. “It’s an exciting time to be in the industry.”
Bahamas Realty announced recently that the Company had closed the year with an increase in gross commissions for the 2016-2017 fiscal year of 12.54% and increase in payout to agents of 14.00%.
