Cayman Real Estate

Jasdip Properties

Best Lodging - Jasdip Properties More and more Passengers are falling in love with Cayman. So much so that we're getting more and more questions about, and feedback on Cayman real estate availability. Below is the personal background of Max Hillier, the first Passenger Pick for real estate.

"When I started to think about how fortunate I was to be living on an island, and The Cayman Islands at that, I realized I wanted to share my passion for island living and the JASDIP lifestyle with others. So I found my way from worldly travels to the island of Cayman Brac in 1993. I worked as a Dive Instructor and Boat Captain for several years before taking over the role of Dive Operations Manager in 2001 which quickly morphed into the role of General Manager of Divi Tiara Beach Resort. It was here that I learned about property management and development so that in 2006 when I moved to the "BIG" island I was primed with 13 years of JASDIP lifestyle and real estate development and sales knowledge and experience. I took on the role of Property Manager for the 69 unit complex - The Grandview Condos – and in 2007 joined a luxury real estate company where I focused my real estate career in the condo / villa sector. You see having come from a tourism background and having lived in these islands now for over 20 years, I am a good partner for you as you make decisions about WHY you may want to live here, WHY you may want to invest here, and WHY the JASDIP lifestyle will help you have the fulfillment that island living brings. I LOVE living here! I LOVE the business of real estate and property management! And I LOVE helping others enjoy this lifestyle by making informed purchase or selling decisions based on concrete data and over 20 years experience HERE in the Cayman Islands." Max Hillier, COO (that would be our Chief Catalyst Officer) (345) 916-4657.
