Investing in St. Croix
I believe our island is ripe for growth and anticipate that prices are going to continue to accelerate. I have wonderful software at my disposal that can help evaluate property for its investment potential, and can share what information I have to help investors make informed and educated choices for their investment dollars. Whether you are looking for rental income, land to hold, "fixer uppers" to fix and flip, or a second home to rent out until you retire, I understand the market and can help guide you to a well informed decision.
Finding a Home Here
There are so many things to think about if you are truly considering moving here permanently or even part time. I have done a lot of research and am recently transplanted enough that I can help you think through this decision. One client said that I "answered questions before he had to ask them." You can count on me to be honest - and I will gladly share my opinions about life here.
Selling a Home Here
First of all, if you're considering selling property here, PLEASE contact me. You will get MAXIMUM exposure of your property and we can save you a considerable amount of money. Your property will be listed on our MLS system, which can (and will) be viewed by potential buyers all over the world. We also list your property on over 20 other sites and monitor inquiries hourly. Contact me for more information...
|"Kim Lucas is by far the most responsive and professional Real Estate agent I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. My wife and I decided to take advantage of a buyers market and look for a retirement home on St Croix now even though we are a few years away from retirement. We sent Kim a link to one house we were interested in and she sent us back several that were perfect fits. We spent two days with her on St Croix and she found us the perfect house. We closed a few months later. But it didn’t end there. She was also able to find tenants for us to rent it to until we decide to retire fulltime and has also been very helpful with finding people to help us manage the property while we are off island."|

|"We had the pleasure of working with Kim for approximately three years prior to purchasing a property in 2015. During our search Kim was always available to answer questions and provide insights. She was instrumental in guiding us through the negotiation and closing process. Kim was also a wealth of information on local service providers. We always found her to be very knowledgeable and professional, and she has our highest recommendation." - Tom & Linda Smith, 2015|
|“I wouldn't buy a house in the Virgin Islands with anyone but Kim. She genuinely cares about her clients & went above and beyond for us when we bought our home. I can't recommend her highly enough!” - Lisa Gay, 2015|
|"Kim and her team went way out of their way to make our transition from California as smooth as possible after finding us the house of our dreams. She/they care!" - George Pereira, 2015|
|"Kim was wonderful! She worked with me during several house hunting trips to the island to find the perfect house to fit my needs. Kim is Very personable, caring and willing to go 'the extra mile' for you." - Jan Buttler, 2015|
|►"If you're moving or buying a vacation property in St. Croix, there is no better realtor then Kim Lucas. I can't go in to detail of what she has done for us but she has gone above and beyond what any normal person would do for anybody, considering the situation we were put in by our horrible realtor back home! Kim asked us what we were looking for in a house and immediately found exactly what we were looking for, and negotiated a contract that favored us without us having to be here!! So like I said look no further. She is the best realtor I have ever had the pleasure to work with and I cannot say enough good things about her. I give her the highest rating available." - Brian D'Amour, 2015|
|"We had not bought property in over 15 years, let alone a place in the Caribbean. Kim guided us and learned more about us as the process went on. We were only on St. Croix for 24 hours when we made our offer. Kim was fantastic to work with and saved us a lot of money in the negotiations (obviously not her first rodeo). We are thinking of getting another place here and Kim will not only be our first call, but our only call." - Michael Hogan, 2015|
|"Kim is efficient, professional, and dedicated to her clients. She really put in the time and effort to find just the right home for us and went the extra mile both before and after our purchase. Four thumbs up!!" - Belinda Moran, 2015|
|"Kim was the best! We did tons of homework before we arrived on what properties we wanted to see. After Kim showed us many properties we purchased a property that was not on our list because she went above and beyond even our expectations. She is very knowledgeable about the island and a lot of fun to be around. She is the best.” - Paul Tomlinson, 2015|
|If I decide to rent/buy on STX, I'll definitely come back to you. I've evaluated you as a highly knowledgeable and professional realtor, straight to the point, and easy to deal with.|
|I am a partner in an Ohio real estate development company. I have worked with many fine real estate professionals as we have grown our company. Kim Lucas is by far the most outstanding realtor I have had the pleasure to work with. She helped us navigate the process of buying outside of the US with skill and aplomb. For example, since current mortgage requirements are more stringent then ever we were quite grateful when Kim tapped the large network of professionals she works with and introduced us to a very skilled mortgage broker. Kim also has a wide circle of craftsmen and tradespeople who can assist any possible need. She has made the whole process of being an absentee landlord much easier! In fact we plan to buy our next St Croix property with Kim and recommend her highly to both new residents and investors.|
|Kim has been our third realtor on this north west Prosperity Hill fantasy property on the Island of St. Croix. She has put much more energy into the presentation and showing of this land than either of the previous agents. Her video is excellent and creative. If you have not seen the video, request a viewing. If you have not seen the land, for whatever reason, request a viewing. You will enjoy this magnificently elevating environment and Kim is delightful and very forthright.|
|I purchased a home in St Croix in Jan of 2014 with Kim as agent. She was very professional, but at the same time fun to be around. Kim is very responsive and knowledgeable about the market, and about the island in general. She is not locked into just a few properties, but is happy to show any property on the island. Kim went the extra mile, or several miles with tours of the island, and even some shopping in several interior design studios so that I could see what was available on the island. I can recommend Kim Lucas without reservation as a realtor extraordinaire should you find yourself in the market for a home on the beautiful island of St Croix.|
|I've bought and sold many houses over the years but I have never been in better hands than I am with you. I am very pleased with the way you are representing me. Thanks|
|This was possible because of you. Kim, we would like to thank you for making the start of our dream possible. Your patience and knowledge were of great help to us. And most of all we felt comfortable with you. Thank you very, very much. My family is complimenting you, on what a great deal it is for that area.|
|Teri and Jeffrey Anderholm|
|We now call St. Croix home since buying our beautiful property with the professional guidance of Kim Lucas and her Sotheby's team. Kim has an innate understanding of St. Croix and conducts business in a transparent, ethical and friendly manner. Her knowledge and enthusiasm for St. Croix encouraged us every step of the way. St. Croix is a rural, beautiful West Indian island paradise, a US territory with a Cruzan personality that sets it apart from all others in the USVI and BVI. The natural beauty of St. Croix's beaches, rain forest, flora and fauna reminded us of another era, reminiscent of the Old Caribbean, Hawaii, or the California coast in the 1930's. The "east meets west" towns of Christiansted and Fredriksted boast beautiful, authentic colonial architecture to please the eye. The local Cruzan culture is distinct and inclusive; it's a great place to live or vacation.We are very thankful for the warm welcome we have received since moving to our new home. We can't imagine a better realtor than Kim Lucas when considering a home, condo or land purchase in St. Croix.|
