Purchasing real estate in Anguilla is an investment in savoir-vivre. Then again, if you’re here in all likelihood you already know that. The crisp, breezy air, alien to pollution; the balmy seawater, soft and invigorating; the simple privileges of a simple life: a good restaurant—no shortage of that on the island—freshly caught fish cooked to perfection, the right bottle of wine to go with dinner. A day in Anguilla is the stuff songs are made of, just a perfect day, which is why hardly anyone ever finds the heart to leave on day two. How long is long enough in paradise, though? The answer to that question is the clue that might guide you to our doorstep.
Anguilla Real Estate Specialists
GUM/KO International Ltd is a locally registered Anguilla real estate agency specialized in land sales. Founder Adrian Kobbe has had a vested interest in the island since 1984, when he was engaged by local entrepreneur Alan Gumbs to carry out the restoration of the Koal Keel in The Valley, one of the oldest buildings standing, however precariously, on Anguilla. It was a partnership that, like the Koal Keel, would live through several incarnations and that more than thirty years later remains strong.
We are proud of being at the forefront of the regulatory drive that has shaped the Anguilla real estate industry in recent years, with GUM/KO International holding license number 003 of the Anguilla Financial Services Commission. Additionally, in a bid to foster a level playing field GUM/KO International has paired with other highly respectable realtors on the island to found the Anguilla Real Estate Association. And yet, beyond governmental agencies and trade associations, the greatest testament to our professionalism is the untarnished reputation we have maintained over the years as a forthright, savvy and scrupulous component of Anguilla’s business community.
