Construction & Real Estate

Part of our specialty of being experts on living in The Bahamas is our knowledge of construction and real estate. Mark Moyle is a licensed real estate agent and long-time construction project manager and owner’s representative here in The Bahamas, and would be happy to assist with any questions you might have.
