Meet the team

Chris Smith


Chris is the Managing Broker for Coldwell Banker Real Estate BVI. He arrived in the BVI in 1992, leaving a successful London ad agency career behind, to work for Sir Richard Branson on Necker Island. After several delightful years on Necker, Chris moved to Virgin Gorda and became the Sales Manager for Nail Bay Resort, a then brand new, 146 acre, 100 lot residential development on Virgin Gorda. Chris and his partners introduced the Coldwell Banker name to the BVI ten years ago and the Agency very quickly established itself as one of the leading Real Estate Brokers in the BVI. Coldwell Banker are the Exclusive Agents for not only Parker's Estate Trunk bay but also Rosewood Little Dix Bay in Virgin Gorda. Notable successes include selling all 32 of the waterfront townhouses at Nanny Cay Marina. Since the storms of 2017, Chris has also served on the BVI Tourism Industry Recovery Committee.
