Caymanian Roy Powell started in the real estate industry but not by applying for job. Just after completing ‘A’ Level Exams he got a phone call saying a friend needed help answering the phone in a real estate office and if he knew of anyone that could help. Within a half hour Roy got a ride there and announced he was the new receptionist and shortly after that he then announced he was bored and wanted more to do. The question was then posed if he knew about computers. In those days the online multiple listing system was non-existent, but this company was attempting to create its own in house version and Roy became the Data Base Administrator. He stayed there for two weeks helping out since he had vacation planned and upon leaving on the last day he was told he had a full time job when he returned. Upon returning he continued to learn the “ins and outs” of the business and started doing rentals and sales. Almost 21 years later and six different locations, “I am still at the Real Estate game” he states. “I have seen many changes in this little country and real estate markets since I started” he adds. Roy has been involved in condo developments including the architectural designs and is fully committed to assisting clients with their real estate needs. When not working he enjoys “yachting” as he calls it on Sunday afternoons.
Dominic Tomkins maybe new to Real Estate but is no stranger to the Cayman Islands. Dominic and family washed up on the shores of Grand Cayman back in 1969 and have never left. The 10 years of schooling in the UK, punctuated with only short holidays back home, helped guarantee that this sun drenched and beautiful island was the only place he wanted to live. The classic year off before college turned into 3 years but the goal of a Degree in Finance from the University of Miami was still achieved in 1991. After a very successful 20 year career in the Investment Industry at Cayman National trading almost every investment imaginable, Dominic has turned his attention to Real Estate. After two decades of Bull & Bear markets, including some whiplash, it is time for the slow and steady gains that Real Estate can offer. The buying and selling of property demands both extensive market research and attention to detail. Dominic is well qualified to help crunch those ever important numbers. It is at Azure Realty, under the guidance of their outstanding team, that Dominic has launched his new career.

Jan at Azure has been an absolute pleasure to work with. She has turned hurdles into opportunities and has been tireless getting things well executed and very quickly. I have no hesitation in giving Jan a 5 star rating.
We recently used Azure Realty for two significant real estate transactions. The 1st, as purchasers & we were so impressed with Jan Tomkin's professionalism & responsiveness that we decided to use Azure for the sale of our house, & we were delighted with the service we received. We would certainly use Jan for any real estate transactions.
Jan was successful in selling our condo fairy quickly when other realtors had it on the market for about 10 years and never got us an offer. She is an exceptional real estate broker and we could not possibly have been happier with the results. I would use her again in the future.

She goes above and beyond to ensure her client is satisfied and no request is too trivial. She’s professional, knowledgeable, funny, smart, & we became fast friends! I would say "She's the best in the busine..
From the moment I met Jan, I knew she was the person that would sell my house. She is so committed to her clients and totally dedicated. I was not disappointed, Jan sold my house in lockdown, not many could have achieved this. It has been a wonderful experience with a truly unique agent.

What a pleasure to work with Jan and Azure. They assisted me in buying my own little piece of paradise and was the perfect link between myself and the sellers.
