Having lived and traveled all over the United States, from Newport Beach California, to Boca Raton Florida, I felt it was time for a change. I first came to Costa Rica in 1999 and knew the moment I got here that this is where I would spend the rest of my life. I only had to sell my business and off to paradise I went. I have been very fortunate to have been able to associate myself with some of the best people in the Costa Rica real estate business, and they have all become my very good friends.
We make a great team. Please read the bios of all of our associates, and you will see why we became Number One.
We are committed to helping you obtain your "Little Piece of Paradise"
I am a Canadian originally from Ontario, transplanted to Shawinigan Lake, on Vancouver Island, BC. and have been living here in the Playa Hermosa, Playa Coco area for over 14 years. After visiting Costa Rica in the mid 1990's, I was bit by that Costa Rica bug. I love British Columbia but the oceans here are pristine and WARM, traded evergreens for palm trees, bought a catamaran and was Capt. Mike for 5 years. Hung up my suits & ties after a 25 years sales and marketing career with my own two printing brokerages and sailed tourists from all over the world along the Costa Rica coastline. Everyone falls in love with Costa Rica and many of my clients would ask me about real estate so I started sending referrals to a new Remax Broker in Playa Hermosa, Michael Simons. The referral cheques kept coming to the point I could not refuse the offer made to join Remax and open the Remax Prestige Ocean Properties office in Playa Panama.
I now manage the Remax Prestige Ocean Properties office as associate broker in Playa Panama and also our new sub office at Lomas Del Mar in the Matapalo Beach area , a six hundred acre development with hundreds of lots and over 100 new homes coming in 2013. This is my home and I take great pride knowing the area inside out and being able to advise new comers on everything they need to know to purchase and settle in here. In 14 years I have established a network of professionals from lawyers, accountants, bankers to builders who can assist in the transition of moving or investing in Costa Rica. If you are looking for a income generating vacation condo or home, a 2 acre ranch or even a beach front hotel property, you have come to the right person. Stability, honesty, integrity, knowledgeable and available 24 - 7.
A self-satisfying life style, helping people Realize their dreams of living in this little paradise.
