Cabarete Dominican Republic Sotheby’s International Realty began as Cabarete Lifestyle Resorts. It was founded by William Holden, retired airline captain. After investing in numerous real estate developments in the Dominican Republic, William could not find anyone who matched his management style (and skills) to manage his own properties. So, he started his own company.
William had an extensive background in real estate and attained the prestigious CCIM designation (Certified Commercial Investment Member). This designation is often referred to as the “PhD of Commercial Investment Real Estate”. More can be viewed on his background in our Leadership section.
Cabarete Lifestyle Resorts began in property management and condominium administration. The company then progressed into rental management. Since the Cabarete office was professional and well-located, the next logical step was real estate sales. William was unique in that he seemed to be the only licensed real estate broker in town. Moreover, he continuously stayed current with USA National Association of REALTORS® continuing education requirements and courses in business ethics. In addition, the CCIM education and professional ethics requirements gave him additional stature.
