25-year real estate veteran Mario Carey is recognized as the leader in luxury home sales in The Bahamas with more than $1 billion in property sales under his belt. Holding Certified Residential Specialist (CRS), Certified International Property Specialist (CIPS) and the exclusive Certified Luxury Home Marketing Specialist (CLHMS) designations, Carey’s sales include 36 properties at exclusive Ocean Club Estates, averaging $5 million each. Carey also holds experience in commercial and residential development as both consultant and participant, including an 80,000 sq. foot archival storage facility and 45,000 sq foot mini-warehouse. Earning a B.A. in Real Estate from Florida State University, Carey began his career at Bay Area Appraisal Services in Tampa, the fastest growing city in the US at the time. There, he was the top performer for seven years straight. In 1990, he returned home to The Bahamas, joined Bahamas Realty and along with serving as partner and later managing partner, he was the top sales broker for 18 consecutive years. In 2008, Carey left Bahamas Realty to found Mario Carey Realty, a full-service luxury real estate company based in Nassau, Bahamas. Despite his formidable sales record, Carey has retained the dual dedications that have been the hallmark of his success – constant study of the market and a personal touch.
