Susan Freer of Barbados Relocation Services explains why the island is a destination of choice for a brand-new life in the sun

What makes Barbados an attractive destination for overseas buyers?

Barbados has an indigenous population of warm and welcoming people who embrace all cultures and nationalities.

­This openness coupled with quality of life, our high literacy rate and reputation for excellence in first world business makes Barbados a top-tier destination for those looking to relocate. You get the best of the Caribbean Island lifestyle with the convenience of metropolitan business.

Have you witnessed any demographic trends emerging in the last few years?

We welcome clients from all areas of the world, but if we were to narrow it down, a good many of our clients recently have been families drawn to the island’s excellent school system and child friendly environment. Barbados boasts a ranking of 4th in the world for literacy (UNDP Report). ­

This is evident with the excellent quality of education in Barbados. There’s a good selection of private primary schools, several of which also provide private secondary education, including the International Baccalaureate. A common observation from families who leave Barbados is that their children are often far more advanced than their counterparts in other jurisdictions.

What key services do Barbados Relocation Services provide?

We are with you every step of the way - from being your first point of contact whether via email or Skype, getting to know you and your specific requirements. We then tailor a bespoke service to fit those needs ensuring that all essential components from housing through to vehicular, immigration and medical requirements are met. Nothing is too big or too small – right down to the finer touch point details such as stocking the fridge of your new home with groceries of your choice.

Any ‘must do’ aspects of settling on the island?

It’s vital to take into account and to value your personal ‘must haves’ whether it be the right gym, allergist or Veterinarian for you precious family pet. ­These elements all feed into quality of life and will help support a healthy transition to a new chapter in your life. ­They’ll require you to visit personally and see if your on-paper choices ‘gel’ with your spirit.

What advice would you give to clients for a smooth move?

Be honest with yourself about the things you need to transition to a new country. And be open to the experience. With the right Relocation Consultant, the process can be as seamless and stress-free as possible.
