David Harris of Associated Island Developers, LTD is partnering with Gina Sakich of Signature Brokers to help make island living a reality for Chattanoogans.

Mr. Harris purchased Escape Cay, which is a short two-hour flight from Atlanta, in the Bahamas. The island, which consists of 120 acres, will not only provide homes and a resort, but will also be a hub for environmental tourism. 

Ms. Sakich will serve as Chattanooga’s referral connection to Escape Cay, which will offer 36 tropical waterfront homes. Ms. Sakich’s firm, Signature Brokers, currently offers services in residential and commercial real estate as well as property management in Tennessee and North Georgia. Ms. Sakich has nearly 20 years of real estate experience and is a member of the National Association of Realtors and Tennessee Association of Realtors.

“Gina’s extremely successful track record, effective marketing strategies and keen sense of client needs make her the perfect fit,” said Mr. Harris.

The first phase of Escape Cay, which will include 18 homes, is expected to be complete by 2015. A second phase, Macana Resort, is slated to open in 2017. A third and final phase to include the final 18 homes will be finished by 2018.

“Signature Brokers assists clients in finding properties from the suburbs to the city and now we’re excited to extend that reach from the suburbs to the sea,” said Ms. Sakich.
