St. Croix Island Life Broker/Owner
(340) 626-3758


Hi, and welcome to St. Croix Island Life! After working for several firms in St. Croix over a dozen years, my partner and I started this company in 2014 for a myriad of reasons: 

  1. To offer superior tools and resources to help educate people about life in St. Croix (because people are buying a “lifestyle” here - not just a home) 
  2. To provide a highly desirable work environment that would allow us to attract top notch agents to serve buyers and sellers; and 
  3. To help sellers attract buyers by accurately and beautifully representing their property and widely marketing and advertising it. 


We strive to do these things better than any other firm here in St. Croix and are proud of our rapid success. As of the end of the second quarter of 2017, our firm is ranked 3rd out of the 22 real estate companies here, based on dollar volume (closed sales). 

As the Broker of the firm, I focus most of my efforts on training, supporting our agents, securing new listings, and marketing. 

My goal is to ensure that you are well taken care of, whether you are a buyer or seller, or just interested in learning more about our island. We want you to LOVE Island Life! And we mean that in every sense of the word! Welcome!

Brooke Myers made her dream a reality when she moved from South Texas to St. Croix in September 2015. She always knew she would live in the Caribbean, but didn’t know it would be St. Croix until she visited in 2014 and decided it was time to make a change. Fast forward, nearly two years on the island, and Brooke and her boyfriend now own a home, a fishing charter business and live a short walk from the beach. Brooke enjoys working with people and hearing their stories. She earned a Bachelor’s of Journalism from the University of Texas at Austin and loves her Texas Longhorns. 

As a Realtor, Brooke is able to listen and understand exactly what each client is looking for and works to ensure their experience of buying a home in the Caribbean is not only fun, but as stress free as possible.
