About Barbara

Barbara Birt

Living in the Virgin Islands is an experience I look forward to sharing with you, whether you’re relocating to St. Thomas for good, only staying for a while or investing in the island’s economy.

Journalism to Real Estate

As a trained journalist, I approach my work as a Realtor in the Virgin Islands with a unique perspective. For me, it’s all about paying close attention to my clients’ individual needs and concerns – weighing both sides of a decision so that impulse and passion will combine with the realities of island dwellings and ultimately island life.

If you are completely new to the Virgin Islands, I go beyond the usual Realtor duties and work to help make sure you settle into your new home comfortably. Thanks to my local network and island knowledge, I can refer you to a array of professionals on St. Thomas, from hairdressers to handymen, cistern cleaners to house cleaners.

If you are currently living on St. Thomas and looking to buy or sell, or to pursue other real estate ventures, I’m happy to partner with you in examining your short and long-term goals and, in the process, deliver an enjoyable and successful real estate transaction.

Imagine waking up to gentle tropical breezes, palm trees and the sparkling blues of the Caribbean. This is the daily tableau almost everywhere on St. Thomas and throughout the rest of the US Virgin Islands.

Since 2007, I’ve been helping people achieve their respective real estate goals in the Virgin Islands. It doesn’t matter if you’re new or you’ve been here for a while. Whether you’re buying or selling, let me narrow down your options so your transaction will best suit your finances and compliment your lifestyle
