About Us

Brian Kassab & Associates Real Estate, St. Kitts-About Us

Brian Kassab & Associates is a long-established Real Estate business, and has, since 1996, offered a service second to none in Basseterre, St. Kitts, successfully managing, renting and selling a carefully selected portfolio of luxury residential and commercial properties.

"My wife and I wish to say that it has been a pleasant experience to deal with Kym and the team at BKA. Kym is a real professional - knowledgeable, accessible and always focused on our needs. All this with a great sense of humour and patience too! Thank you very much for helping us settle in St Kitts."
Peter Rochman, St Kitts, moving to England

"Having done business with Brian Kassab & Associates for over 3 years, I can honestly say that I have received the services of a professional and reliable organization, as far as my real estate needs were concerned. My designated agent, Velma Merchant, has always gone the extra ten miles to ensure my complete satisfaction and comfort. Know-how and co-operation are two words that should be used to describe her efforts."
Stephen Boucher, Frigate Bay, St. Kitts

"Having vacationed on many Caribbean islands for many years, this year we decided to purchase a vacation/retirement villa on St. Kitts. With the Brian Kassab Associates team, and especially with Kym Taylor leading the way, our search was a stress free pleasure. The second property that we were shown was a perfect fit, meeting all of our "wish and want lists". Kym's attention to detail and communications, during, and after the search, sale and closing, continues to this day. Additionally, having the Kassab Associates team manage our St Kitts villa, when we are not there, reinforces that we made the correct decision. Thank you Kym, and the Brian Kassab Associates team."
John and Cathy Abbruscato, Hockley, Texas, USA
