Moving to a new place is not easy. Our agents are always happy to guide expats through setting up house on our island.
Cupecoy, St. Maarten, Dutch Caribbean (PRWEB) June 03, 2013
Century 21 Island Realty is gearing up to welcome the new batch of medical students to AUC in the coming weeks.
“We know medical school is tough, even if it is medical school on our sunny Caribbean isle. Century 21 Island Realty agents are well versed in the needs of students to make the settling down process a cinch,” says Ritika Asrani, Head Broker of Century 21 Island Realty.
The medical school is located in Cupecoy, a bustling area of the island. Century 21 agents spend much time gathering rental listings from that and surrounding areas that will best suit students’ needs. From long and short-term rental studios and condos to multiple bedroom apartments, Century 21’s listings cater to the single student, the roommates and the young couple (with or without children).
“Moving to a new place is not easy. Our agents are always happy to guide expats through setting up house on our island. Often the renter has not been on the island for a long time or has only been able to do internet research. This is where our agents’ knowledge of the real estate scene and the island in general comes into play,” Asrani says.
Agents work with clients to ascertain their needs and seek out dwellings to match. Some students look for a home close enough to walk to the campus, other prefer to get a car or a scooter. All of that is taken into consideration when suggesting possible rentals.
Many of the rentals listed with Century 21 Island Realty are from owners who are accustomed to having medical students as renters. “Like Century 21, the owners understand the intense life of a medical student and both work to ensure there is less hassle in settling down so the focus can be on studying,” says Asrani.
Century 21 Island Realty agents are ready to assist new AUC medical school students as they prepare to head to St. Maarten in the coming months. “Start your search early, contact us via e-mail or phone with your needs so our agents can start fine tuning your options. This way by the time you get on the island, the process is almost to completion,” advised Asrani.
