Dealing with the pandemic has largely redefined the meaning of home.

Home in the new normal is much more than a dwelling – it has become the center of where people live, play, dream, discover, entertain, and even work remotely. Today’s home must also be a safe haven where family and friends can come together once again — to celebrate life with no restrictions.

Introducing ERA Cayman Luxury – a real estate service especially created for the world’s most discriminating clients who wish to make their new home in one of the finest – and safest — island destinations on the planet.

A trusted brand for a preferred market

ERA Cayman is a thriving real estate company owned and operated by seasoned brokers Robert and Jeanette Totten. Having been key players in the Cayman luxury real estate segment for over four decades, the couple felt it was the right time to reclaim their brand, luxury real estate. Prior to joining the ERA franchise, they were known as Cayman Luxury Property Group (CLPG). By reintroducing ERA Cayman Luxury Real Estate, they are going back to their roots

“ERA Luxury clients know what they want,” says broker Robert Totten. “These are select individuals who have researched the market and have established their operating budget beforehand.”

“They don’t want to waste time sifting through inadequate properties that are not of interest to them. They know what they are looking for and have a pretty good idea of what is available on the market. When they come to us, they are connecting with trusted real estate professionals who know and understand the Cayman luxury market, and have the proficiency and experience to guide them to the perfect vacation home or investment property.”

Robert and Jeanette Totten have been actively involved in numerous real estate and construction projects since the early ‘80s — a period marked by rapid growth throughout the Cayman Islands. Encouraged by the continued uptrend in high-end property sales and development, the couple set up the Cayman Luxury Property Group (CLPG) in 2004 and immediately became one of the country’s front-runners in serving the international luxury real estate market.

In 2019, CLPG joined the global franchise ERA Real Estate, and the company evolved into ERA Cayman Islands.

Showcasing the Luxury Experience

Given their history, Robert says the newly launched ERA Luxury section is merely a reinforcement of the company’s original strength. “You can say that we are ‘dusting off’ our interest, qualifications, and experience in the Cayman Islands’ luxury real estate market,” he explains.

“We built our business around servicing the luxury market and now want to showcase the luxury experience again, especially since it has taken a backseat during the pandemic.”

Despite a brief COVID-19 lockdown early last year, the Cayman property market was able to generate US$ 77-million in sales by the end of 2020 – proof of how the real estate industry, particularly in luxury property development, continues to be an important contributor to the local economy.

Even limitations on international travel have not deterred property specialists like the Tottens from pushing for excellence at every turn. In fact, just recently, Jeanette Totten sold a six-bedroom beach front property called Sun Serenity for a whopping US $8.2 million — the highest priced home sold “sight unseen” in the Rum Point area of Grand Cayman.

For the ultra-affluent, time is money and time spent searching online for properties is often limited. ERA Luxury filters through the current listings to ensure that clients will only see preferred properties that meet their expectations.

“Our market analysis shows that this luxury market does not have the patience for searching through numerous property listings that are not up to their needs,” cites Robert. “They want to know what is available at an acceptable price point as soon as possible, otherwise they click off. Our luxury section will round up these luxury properties for them.”

To be included under the ERA Luxury category, properties must carry a market value of US$ 2,250,000 and higher, with the most desirable locations and amenities to satisfy the most affluent clientele.

Top picks for the luxury clientele

Asked to name three available properties which he believes would appeal to the ERA Luxury clientele, Robert picks out the following:

  • The Sovereign, Seven Mile Beach – Described as the “pinnacle of class,” The Sovereign is home to bespoke luxury. Everything about this residence is designed to impress — and to spare no expense. This preferred beachfront property offers access to a full-sized, two car garage (not a small thing in Cayman, especially in Seven Mile Beach), a tennis court and private gym, and a live-in manager ready to assist you 24/7. With its elegant, sweeping grounds and tastefully laid-out villas, The Sovereign is easily among the most desirable addresses in Grand Cayman, as well as a remarkable investment. According to Robert, The Sovereign complex has the largest ratio of land-per-villa of any property along the fabled Seven Mile Beach – and with raw land alone valued on the upwards of US $4-million per unit, this ground end unit stands unrivalled in both its aesthetic and lucrative values.
  • Tranquility on Sand Point – An executive-style home that sits on a sprawling near full acre of sandy beach, Tranquility on Sand Point is a premiere address in the exclusive enclaves of Cayman Kai. This walled estate boasts of all the creature comforts any discerning buyer would look for — from its well-appointed master suite with spectacular ocean views and a private lanai, ample space that could be used for a home office or gym, both indoor and outdoor dining spaces, a gourmet kitchen with custom-designed cabinets and a walk-in pantry, a fully remodeled guest house, an infinity edge pool… The list goes on and on. “Properties located on Sand Point Road carry the highest value for beachfront homes outside of Seven Mile Beach,” adds Robert. “Tranquility Estate has the highest finishes available and raw land value alone exceeds US $3-million at the moment.”
  • FIN Grand Cayman – A private residential development on over two acres of oceanfront land, FIN offers a private beach, salt water lagoon, an elevated glass bottom pool, plus five star services and amenities that set a new standard for luxury living in the Cayman Islands. “FIN has raised the bar for modern contemporary construction on the island,” observes Robert. “The design and settings cater to professionals working in the finance and legal industries. It has a fantastic location in the George Town harbor area and is easy commute to the business district as well.”
