TOP REAL ESTATE AGENTS IN THE CARIBBEAN REGION DUSTIN RENNIE AND WILL MITCHELL
Dustin Rennie & Will Mitchell are two of the Top Agents of RE/MAX in Belize. Belize is a country nestled south of Mexico and East of Guatemala. The country is unique as it is both Central America & The Caribbean, creating both mainland and islands. Dustin Rennie & Will Mitchell focus most of their attention on the Caribbean Island of Ambergris Caye, as it is not only the country’s largest island but also the #1 tourist destination.
The team of Dustin Rennie & Will Mitchell represent industrious, intelligent and deeply knowledgeable Realtors who are truly committed to helping not only their clients obtain their own piece of paradise but also grow the community they live and work in. Will & Dustin’s commitment to providing their many buyers -the majority of whom are from the United States and Canada – with top-of-the-line customer service. This has translated into a sterling reputation as a trusted and honest real estate advocate who can be trusted to place their clients’ needs front and center during every transaction. Individually, Will & Dustin are currently #1 & #2 for RE/MAX in Central America & The Caribbean. Even though the titles are for individual earnings, they know that this accomplishment is something that they could only achieve as a team.
Originally from Canada, Dustin & Will began their journey in real estate as High School friends. Dustin Rennie began his career in 2017. “I was working in tech for a publicly traded company. My best friend and current business partner Will Mitchell was in Belize working in real estate,” recalls Dustin, when asked about his industry origins. “He mentioned to me that there was an opportunity to take over and oversee RE/MAX’s Belize region. It sounded like a great opportunity, so I jumped at it.”
Since then, Dustin and Will have built a thriving business that currently employs nearly eighty agents spread out over eleven offices, servicing both Belize and The Bahamas. “Our team is more than just the agents. We also have our office with a sales and media team, a client concierge, and an office administrative assistant,” says Dustin. The RE/MAX Belize team embraces the team concept over the solo approach. “If you want to go fast, go alone,” Dustin says. “If you want to go far, go as a team.”
Currently, a significant portion of business is based upon repeat and referred clients, a true testament to the excellent service they provide. “We understand that ninety-nine percent of the people we work with are from Canada and the U.S.,” says Dustin, when asked how he has managed to generate so much trust and loyalty. “For many of them, it’s their first time buying a home in a foreign country, and they don’t know who to talk to or where to go. We provide a network of lawyers, closing companies, architects and engineers for those who plan on building a house. Working with foreign buyers requires a global reach, working in a small community and country requires a great reputation.”
There are numerous other reasons behind Dustin & Will’s ever-growing success story, and chief among them would be the thorough and intelligent approach to marketing their listings. As Belize does not have an MLS, deft utilization of both the internet and multiple social media platforms ensures maximum exposure, videos and high-end professional photography are also used. “We have to get fairly creative. This means we have to be innovative and continue to find new ways to improve ourselves and our marketing.”
During those rare moments when they are not working, Dustin & Will enjoy traveling, snorkeling, spearfishing and diving the world’s largest living reef (400 yards from the East Coast) or enjoying the picturesque Caribbean Ocean. The team with RE/MAX Belize is also very much a philanthropist who gives back to his community in many ways, including raising money to feed the local underprivileged.
Among their plans for the future, Dustin & Will share a commitment to helping shape Belize and the Island of Ambergris Caye into a world-class tourist destination by luring high-end restaurants and other business to the island, and also grow his business by adding more agents to his roster.
“We love working in real estate,” says Dustin, his sincerity obvious. “I think it’s amazing to be able to have such an impact on people’s lives.”
