'Meet the Agent' - Heather Gray from CRE Properties
This month for ‘Meet the Agent’ we interview Heather Gray who recently joined CRE Properties as Real Estate Agent. Heather brings her business background to the Real Estate Market and is enjoying the variety of work in her new profession. Heather provides some top tips for buyers and sellers in the current market as well as discussing favourite listing on the market right now.
How long have you been in the business? I joined CRE Properties in October 2019. Before that I worked in finance and was C.O.O. of a global family office, heading up their operations in Bermuda and overseeing corporate structures, trusts and investments, including some complex property transactions. I have always been interested in the real estate market in Bermuda, so took my real estate exams and look forward to working with the experienced team at CRE Properties.
Why do you like working for CRE Properties and what’s the favorite part of your job? I have known the owners of CRE Properties, Beverly and Donato Sgobba, for many years and have seen their professionalism and sound judgement in action. They found us our current home just when we were starting to think our dream home wasn’t out there; but it was. They then found us a buyer for our previous house and helped us make sure both the sale and the purchase transactions went through smoothly. I am really enjoying the variety of the work - both sales and rentals - and have met some wonderful people. It’s good to use my organizational skills and experience of handling complex projects in a new profession.
What is your favorite property on the market right now? My favourite property is Seascape in Tucker’s Town which is on the market for the first time in 70 years. The property is situated in a coveted location, on a quiet lane, through the gates. Stunning unobstructed ocean views with direct beachfront access makes this one of the most special properties available to discerning purchasers.

How do you see the Bermuda property market in 2020? I think there is a general awareness of what is required to reinvigorate the Bermuda economy and steps are being taken in this direction, so prospects for 2020 look good.
Tips for purchasers? Get financing in place, be clear what you want but also be open minded. There are opportunities just now to buy into a depressed market.
Tips for sellers? Take the advice of your agent (when we sold our house CRE even suggested slight rearrangement of furniture to show the house at its best!), be realistic in pricing, have a good tidy up, put away your personal things and any ‘quirky’ decor choices. Fix any broken shutters, torn screens etc. Buying or selling your house can be daunting but careful planning and the advice of a good agent will smooth the process.
