Bought a home in 2014.
Kerstin recently helped my husband and I purchase a condo on St. Thomas. We would recommend her without hesitation to anyone! She listens to your wish list and has a gift for knowing what will suit your needs and budget. It took us Nearly a year to find just the right fit, in the end she found the perfect space for us and called us before it even hit the MLS! So nice to work with a professional who not only returns your calls, but calls you when something new is about to be available! As first time home buyers in this area it was great to have an agent with a long list of contacts to help us navigate the world of mortgages, and all the other paperwork that goes along with the purchase of a home!

Bought a home in 2014.
My name is Eric Bilger and I have just purchased a home on St Thomas named Villa Viento and have worked with Kerstin and Nick at Sea Glass Properties for the better part of a year. I would highly recommend them to anyone that is in need of a top notch real estate team.

Having made many real estate purchases over the years in the Virgin Islands as well as New York i can honestly say they are the two best brokers you could ask for.

For nearly a year we searched for our dream home. We looked at dozens of homes had some fall through and yet they never tired from my endless questions and would always get back to you quickly.

Their level of professionalisim is unmatched to say the least by any other agent in the Virgin Islands. They have access to the best homes as they go up for sale and were as motivated as I was to help us find a home.

And the service throughout is what most impressed me the most. It is still on going. They have a team approach and have created a true network of contacts. Even after the closing they have helped me find various contractors for my property as well and they have been great too

In short I would highly recommend them and look to continue to use them going forward for years to come.

Sincerely, Eric Bilger

Sold a home in 2013.
When we contacted Kerstin at Sea Glass Properties, we were trying to decide if it was a good time to sell our St. Thomas property. She provided us with a market value range, which we were very happy with and is how we priced our property. After quickly reducing the price a couple of times, we did sell....and it did sell quickly for St. Thomas; in about 5 months. Kerstin and her team are all very professional and we would recommend Sea Glass Properties for your real estate needs in the Virgin Islands.

Sold a home in 2012.
I asked Kerstin to handle the sale of my Peterborg home in March 2012 after my wife passed away. She was able to find a buyer and get the closing done by early May 2012. I found Kerstin to be professional, respectful and efficient, which was greatly appreciated during a very difficult time. I will definitely use Kerstin again and recommend her to anyone looking for a professional Broker on St. Thomas.

Sold a home in 2012.
I owned a piece of land on St. Thomas that I wanted to sell. With over 200 lots for sale on the island I wasn't optimistic about selling quickly. I turned to Kerstin McConnell as I know that her company has the best marketing on the island and that she is able to reach buyers. Sure enough she was able to get the property sold in 60 days! I would recommend Kerstin and Sea Glass Properties to any buyer.

Bought a home in 2011.
I am in the National Guard and was stationed in Guantanamo Bay. While I was there my fiance worked with Kerstin McConnell for six months, most times on weekends and after work trying to find a home that I could purchase when I got back. They narrowed it down to about three homes so that we were able to move quickly when I returned. I appreciate her professionalism throughout the process. I have recommended her to my co-workers in the National Guard who have also worked with her to purchase homes and I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking to purchase a home on St. Thomas.

We connected, but it did not work out. Looking in VI 00802
We had such a poor experience with this woman. She would not show us what we wanted and blocked other agents from us as well. We eventually found a beautiful oceanfront home with another broker and are now continuing to purchase more high end properties in the Virgin Islands. First impressions and customer service is key and this woman unfortunately fails on all counts. Please post as this will help others.

The relationship between a Realtor and her client is a personal one. To find you the right house at the right price, I will need to know more about you than almost any other professional. What is your family and financial situation? What are your goals in life? What makes you happy? These sorts of intimate questions help me assess what kind of home will fit your needs. Because of this sort of personal relationship, it is inevitable that I will not be the right fit for everyone who seeks my assistance. In these cases, I politely direct my would-be customers to seek the assistance of other brokers. This is what happened with the customer who posted the negative review. From her post, it is clear that she did find another broker who assisted her in locating property and that she is satisfied with that experience. As the recipient of the 2012 Realtor of the Year award, I am confident in my reputation for excellent customer service.

Sold a home in 2012.
My wife and I have been in the Virgin Islands for 12 years, having lived on all three Islands (STT, STJ and STX). During that time we had associations with multiple realtors while looking for property and finding adequate housing. We ended up owning 2 houses on St. Thomas which we decided to sell. We were introduced to Kerstin of Sea Glass Properties and found her to be a very knowledgeable, patient, pleasant and productive person to work with. Sea Glass has sold both of our houses, in a bad market, that met our expectations not only in price but timely as well. I would recommend Kerstin and Sea Glass Properties to anyone wanting to buy or sell property in the Virgin Islands. Thanks Kerstin. Tom and Nancy
