Carol was born in UK but grew up in Australia before returning to London to start work for an international tour operator and travel specialist. This honed her love of travel and stints in Sydney and Hong Kong followed.
Carol then went on to study Stage Management and Theatre Lighting and eventually found herself working in the music business in various roles including record labels, artist management and TV promotions. This led her to form her own PR agency which handled a range of fashion, lifestyle and corporate clients focusing on underground promotions and early internet adoption.
Carol finally landed in Nevis via Providenciales and St Kitts, she has over 8 years’ experience in Real Estate in the wider Caribbean. She has been very active in online property promotion, international realtor networks and has worked on the UK TV show “A Place in The Sun” and also appeared in two episodes of Caribbean Life for HGTV, “Zen in Nevis” and “From the Farm to Nevis".
It was a natural progression for her to set up her own Brokerage, in partnership with Gigi.
Gigi was educated at boarding school in the United Kingdom. During school holidays, she traveled extensively around the world with her parents who lived in far-flung places, working for an international telecommunications company. This whetted her appetite for meeting people from various countries and cultures and it was love at first sight when she first visited the islands of St Kitts and Nevis some 35 years ago. Thereafter, with a few short exceptions, she has been resident ever since.
Gigi has crewed on luxury yachts, worked in advertising in London and has had several businesses over the last 20 years. Her affinity for people, her attention to detail, and her desire to make other people's dreams come to fruition led her to launch Carambola Real Estate with her husband, Charlie, in 2006.
The Brokerage underwent a name change in 2018 to St Kitts Nevis Realty.
