Christmas Island Real Estate
CI Property Pty Ltd began trading as Christmas Island Real Estate and Christmas Island Tropical Homes in March 2010.
As principal/licensee, Ray Murray saw the opportunity to establish and provide all aspects of real estate on CI, offering professional service to both buyers and sellers alike and achieving significant sales numbers. This was something which was a gap in the local business and was supported by the Indian Ocean Territories Accommodation Needs Assessment.
Rays move to Christmas Island was a major step in his life, after having a successful career in Western Australia’s Margaret River region.
The company developed a professional property management service, something that Ray was able to identify beforehand and it now has a large number of homes managed and tenanted on behalf of owners.
Christmas Island Tropical Homes have completed their first display home which has set a new standard in design and quality of new homes on CI.
The homes are designed for tropical living and take their inspiration from traditional Balinese architecture, combined with contemporary influences, resulting in a stunning home, perfect for the climate and lifestyle.
Ray has been able to contract local builder Troy Watson who has put together a team of skilled tradesmen to assemble the homes and finish them to a top quality level.
Ray says “Whilst the establishment and opening of the business has not always easy, the lifestyle, opportunities, people and beauty of the islands makes it all worthwhile.”
If you are thinking of investing or building Ray would welcome the opportunity to discuss the possibilities. There are some very exciting things happening and by doing due diligence and your home work before investing , then Christmas Island may become a home to you like it now is for me.
CI Property Pty Ltd was the recipient of an Indian Ocean Territories Economic Deve lopment Fund which helped in a small way towards the early set up costs.
