Yalidy & Brenda

The two female owners Yalidy and Brenda became business partners 3 years ago. When the opportunity arose to buy the company from the previous owners, Yalidy was looking for a partner to share the big investment and convinced her friend Brenda to join in,

In a field, dominated by men affiliated with construction, the two ladies had to convince their many male costumers of their installation and technical knowhow. Thru Yalidy’s husband who works in the construction business, Yalidy got to know many people in the business and slowly they could convince the male customers with their great service, knowledge and their excellent fork lift skills.

Yalidy who grew up on Bonaire was born in the Dominican Republic and came to the island when she was 8 years. She finished her school education and went to the Netherlands for her studies. Finalizing her tourism management study the first years of her return to the island, she worked in the tourism industry. Later she started her own property management company, related to her husbands business in construction.

While working at Sand Dollars Yalidy and Brenda and their husbands got to know each other during a renovation project at Brenda and her husband’s condo and became good friends.

Brenda never intended to live full time on the island, visiting the island for years in their vacations they became owners of a sand dollar condo to come and stay thru the winter period.
