Valderine Edgecombe BSc, BRI
CEO/Managing Broker Licensed No. 709
Nassau, The Bahamas
Valderine is originally from Long Island, Bahamas. She travelled to New Providence, Bahamas after her high school education to successfully complete an Associates of Art Degree in Accounting in 1993 at The University of The Bahamas. One of her dreams before she completed high school was to work at one of the Big Five Accounting firms at the time of their existence. As a result, she extended her education at North Carolina State University, Raleigh, North Carolina, where she obtained a Bachelor’s of Science Degree in Accounting.
She fulfilled that dream shortly after her return from university where she spent many very inspiring years at PricewaterhouseCoopers. Valderine further ventured into the private sector until 2009, when she finally identified her second career in real estate and obtained her Bahamas Real Estate Association (BREA) license.
Primarily based on Valderine’s need to fully challenge her ultimate potential in the business world, she decided to create her real estate company. Overall, it was not an easy journey for Valderine but with God’s help, she has developed an even greater passion to help others achieve all of their real estate needs. She is all smiles as she helps each person with many obstacles that may arise during the purchasing and/or renting process. You cannot but think what else you can buy or rent with her extraordinary support once your transaction is completed.
Valderine enjoys spending time especially with her adorable daughter and only child, SaSa, parents and siblings; traveling; preparing unique dishes; walking bare feet on the beach; interior designing and landscaping.
