Tessa Hydes

Tessa Hydes Property Management (THPM) was started  as a personal home business in July 2004, after Tessa had spent 7 years learning the real estate and rental / property management professions with one of Caymans leading Real Estate firms. During that time Tessa built the long term rental and property management section of the firm from the ground up, initially representing a handful of properties to almost 100 contracts within a couple of years, and concurrently gaining the expertise, contacts and knowledge that has concreted THPM as Caymans leading and most respected long term rental and property management companies in the Cayman Islands.

Whinney Pars

I was born and raised in the Cayman Islands and now I get to share and pass on this culture to my two children. Being a mother I spend a lot of time with my little family every chance I get. It keeps me busy and up to date on all the details of life from teaching to multitasking. I wouldn’t trade it for the world, its work away from work.  I also enjoy some reading and visits to the beach in the little spare time I do get.

Being a part of the tourism and hospitality industry since 2009 and having 10 years in the customer service field I am happy to be a part of the THPM team and to be giving my services to the company and this beautiful island I call home. Working in the customer service field has led me to a number of experiences that I can now transfer to the real estate business. I look forward to working with this already hard working team.
