Why Work With Me

Abigail was born and raised in St. John, USVI. Working in her family’s pottery studio and vacation villa rental businesses from a young age gave her an early advantage in St. John’s unique real estate market. One of the pioneering students to attend the first private elementary institution on St. John, now known as Gifft Hill School, Abigail moved on to attend the Antilles College Preparatory School in St. Thomas. After graduation, she attended the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale before excelling in Public Relations with prominent, high-end retailer Neiman Marcus. Abigail went on to join the Galleria Collection of Fine Homes Real Estate firm in Fort Lauderdale, FL, and succeeded quickly in the hot and competitive market. This experience inspired and propelled her to make her long-time dream come true—she returned home to St. John, USVI, in the summer of 2002 and began her real estate career with Holiday Homes.
