Cross and Mosko launch property firm
Cross & Mosko Real Estate and Development Co. Ltd. (Cross & Mosko) has announced the recent establishment of its real estate sales, appraisals and development business.
The principals, Jim Mosko and Kevin Cross, have known each other for 20 years.
Mosko is a well-known leader in the business community and is the president of Mosko Group of Companies.
In addition to his experience in construction and development projects, Mosko has been active in real estate transactions for over 20 years. He is a licensed broker and his primary role in Cross & Mosko will be to identify and execute upmarket real estate sales and development transactions.
Mosko said: “I’m pleased to be moving forward with this new venture with Kevin at the helm. I’ve known and trusted him for years and this adds a real estate company to the range of businesses we now have in the Mosko family of companies.”
Cross has also been engaged in the real estate business for 20 years and served on the board of the Bahamas Real Estate Association (BREA) for three years. He is a BREA licensed broker and appraiser. He specializes in high value property sales, and particularly in private islands often in conjunction with his exclusive affiliate Private Islands Inc., the leading private islands marketplace.
Cross also has a thriving professional appraisal practice, serving leading banks, insurance companies, attorneys and other clients in The Bahamas and elsewhere. He qualified as an appraiser in 1997. Cross will continue his activity in sales and appraisals and will act as chief executive officer of the company.
Cross said: “I was absolutely delighted to have this opportunity. Jim and I have worked together in the past and I have always enjoyed his honest and no-nonsense way of doing business. I gained a lot of valuable experience in the last 10 years with Bahamas Realty, but the chance of working as an equal partner with someone of Jim’s stature, backed by the business infrastructure of the Mosko Group, was an opportunity too good to miss.”
Mosko is the eldest of three sons of George Mosko, who led and developed Mosko United Construction for 55 years before handing over the presidency to Jim in 2010. Cross is the second of three sons of Dennis Cross, who lived in Nassau for 25 years and was senior partner of the accounting firm KPMG for The Bahamas and Turks & Caicos Islands before transferring to lead KPMG in Hungary in 1991.
Kevin Cross was educated at St. Andrew’s School in New Providence, Rugby School in England, and St. Johnsbury Academy and Connecticut State University in the U.S.A. He was a successful track and field athlete and became a state track champion in the 100m and 200m.
Jim Mosko was educated in the U.K. and the U.S.A. and was awarded a degree in civil engineering from Georgia Institute of Technology.
