Cara Jo Hinton and Kirk Boeger were fantastic to work with! They are very professional, honest, and caring - besides being excellent at selling property. They had an unbelievable challenge selling my property on St. Thomas, but had a cash buyer even before it officially hit the MLS! I would not hesitate to recommend Cara Jo Hinton and Kirk Boeger to anyone wanting to sell - or buy - on St. Thomas. You just couldn't find better agents!
When you love your home, but need to sell, it is not easy. But when you have Cara Hinton as your agent it makes it a lot easier. She was very caring, professional, knowledgeable. and kept me up to date on the progress. What could have been a very stressful experience, turned out to be an extremely positive one with a smooth transition – thank you Cara!”
Dear Ms. Hinton,
I just wanted to take a moment to thank you and your company for making our transition to becoming landowners in St. Thomas a painless and really enjoyable experience. Your professional approach and seamless navigation of paperwork,legalities, logistics and just about every other problem was to say the least exceptional.
Also I appreciate the follow up and all the help after the closing to make us feel comfortable and secure in our purchase. It is such a pleasure to work with such efficient and knowledgeable people with savvy and impeccable integrity. You are a true professional.

Kirk Boeger and Cara Hinton spent two years selling our house. It was a complicated sale and yet they persisted through all sorts of roadblocks, helping us address all the problems that arose and continually answering our many questions. All throughout the ordeal, Kirk and Cara kept an optimistic attitude as they continued to bring in potential buyers, work with other realtors, and make sure the house had proper web exposure. And finally, two years later, Kirk and Cara sold our house to everyone's satisfaction!
Kirk is a pleasure to work with. He has a wealth of knowledge and his quick response time and hard work made our experience better than we could have imagined. Living in Pennsylvania, we did a lot of research and correspondence via the internet. We had contacted many other realtors in St. Thomas before finding someone we were comfortable working with on our purchase. During our search we spoke with Kirk numerous times and eventually made it on island to view the properties had interested in. From the first to the last property that we visited, Kirk knew exactly what we were looking for and was able to find an option that fit us perfectly. Just a few short months later we were proud owners of a small piece of paradise in St. Thomas. We refer anyone we speak to regarding real estate purchase in the USVI to Kirk and his team. We are very thankful for finding a trustworthy, professional and friendly agent we can return to in the future.

We found Kirk and Cara through an internet search for Realtors in St Thomas. For sure, we really feel fortunate with our luck in finding them. We have owned several vacation homes in the past, so we understand that each market has its own local flair and uniqueness. Thus, before we made a purchase we wanted to find someone who could help us understand the local market and find a good value in our purchase. Kirk and Cara did just that. They are the best Realtor team we have ever dealt with.
With their help we soon purchased a Condo in the Cowpet Bay area. Shortly after the purchase we decided to rent it out occasionally. Well before we knew it, they found a very secure long term renter at a good rate. Subsequently, the tenant renewed their rental term for another long term lease. So this has been a very nice income producing arrangement! And Cara has professionally handled any maintenance or tenant requests in a quick and efficient manner.
While we really liked this arrangement financially, it did not give us any place to stay on our vacations to the Island. So we contacted Kirk and asked him to find us another property to purchase. This time we desired a Villa. And with that he delivered. He helped us understand the difference between condo and home ownership on the Island and the features of the different neighborhoods for our purchase. So next thing we knew we were celebrating the closing of a waterfront property in Estate Peterborg!
Without both Kirk and Cara’s professional knowledge of the market and their devotion to help clients, we may not have felt comfortable purchasing any properties in the Virgin Islands. But now we are fortunate to own two properties and enjoy every minute we get to vacation in the US Virgin Islands. Thanks again Kirk and Cara!

Cara is amazing and the best Realtor we have ever worked with! In a 12 day buying trip, we looked at 28 condos; negotiated a purchase; and had our appraisal and inspection completed. To have this happen in the US is impossible, truly amazing in the Virgin Islands. We decided to purchase a condo in St Thomas. I started asking questions in July in Minnesota about purchasing property in the VI’s. I was given the name of a Minnesota realtor that had previously lived and worked in St Thomas. The first thing she said to me was, go with Cara, you won’t find anyone better. She was right. From the moment I contacted Cara, I knew she was looking out for our best interest. Price ranges, types of units, bedrooms, views and a bunch of other wants were discussed. Within a few days, Cara put together an on line listing of approximately 50 condos for me to look through remotely. We went on the buying trip in August and closed in September. I would never go with anyone else to purchase a condo/home in the Islands. It didn’t matter if her company was listing the condo, or another. Her integrity to make sure we purchased the right home for us stood out 10 fold. 1 year later, we LOVE our new home still. Cara, thank you for everything.
Honestly, we were thrilled we had you two representing us - we were STOKED knowing you guys had our backs!! You never ever have up. You always listened to ours needs - never judged us. You ALWAYS followed through. Always. I consider ourselves to be one of "the" luckiest ones on island. You helped us find our home. And it's a magical home with a SHIT TON of land. We're over the moon. Every single day since closing, we say to ourselves, wow- we got lucky!!! This is an awesome house. We love it here. Our baby Olive is so lucky to have a home like this to call her own. Grateful beyond expression.

Working with Cara Hinton and Kirk Boeger at David Jones Real Estate was such a positive experience for us. They made home buying less stressful by building a personal relationship with us. They listened to our family’s needs & worked hard to show us properties that fit our criteria. We never felt pressured to settle for a home that wasn’t quite right. Once we identified the perfect home they helped us negotiate a fair offer. Cara and Kirk were open & gave honest feedback to any questions we had though out the home buying experience. Whenever we meet people looking to buy or sell a home we are always quick to refer them to Cara & Kirk at David Jones Real Estate!

Recently I made the decision to purchase a vacation home in St Thomas & contacted David Jones Real Estate. I couldn't have been happier with my experience. I had been travelling to St Thomas for a number of years & finally decided on last year’s trip that I might possibly be interested in purchasing something. So when I was making plans for a visit there this February I contacted David Jones Real Estate & set up a day to go look at potential properties. Cara was nothing but professional & lined up multiple properties in my price range for me to look at. After looking at many properties I finally decided on the one that was the perfect fit for me & am now the happy owner of a condominium in St Thomas! I would highly recommend Cara Hinton and David Jones Real Estate to anyone thinking about buying in the US Virgin Islands.
I want everyone to know of my pleasure in working with Cara Jo Hinton at both the purchase and sale of my condo. From my purchase in 2000 to the sale of the condo in 2013, I never felt neglected or that my best interests were not at the forefront of the negotiations. Your expertise in the local market and professionalism were the main reasons for choosing you as my agent. I would not hesitate in recommending you to anyone interesting in investing in the Virgin Islands.
We would like to tell you about and recommend Kirk Boeger, for all the help he did in selling our home in the Virgin Islands. He is the most dedicated and honest, and we always knew he had our best interests at heart, even when we didn't want to hear it sometimes. He often had to give us a reality check but always with our best interest in mind. We have bought and sold many homes around the world, and Kirk was not only the most capable agent with whom we have worked, but also our favorite. Whether you need help towards finding a home, or selling your property, Kirk is the one you want to work with.
