Born and raised in the USA, Gigi Tea first visited Cabarete in 2012 and fell in love with the lifestyle, culture, and the sport of surfing. She made a big decision and decided to stay in this beautiful town. Because her parents are Dominican, moving here was in a way getting back to her roots, a process that is recently being called rematriation: going back to your motherland.
At first in Cabarete she managed an eco-hotel that focused on fitness retreats, then she worked in e-commerce and lived here in DR as a “digital Nomad.” As life evolves, so did the internet, so she has worked the last 4 years as a social media manager, freelancer, and copywriter for several brands both in DR and North America.
Gigi Tea is both Dominican and American so she understands and finds solutions for the challenges people face when relocating. Working with Gigi you can expect to find your dream property while also sharing the beauty of her culture in a way only locals can. She is passionate about working with RealtorDR because they consistently give back to the local community in innovative and creative ways. You can find Gigi every morning at the best surf spot on the island, Playa Encuentro.
