“After my own extensive investigation of various local communities, as well as my own review of properties on the market at the time, I contacted Christine and Lance in the hope they could assist me in finding a home and property meeting my needs, desires and dreams here in the beautiful Costa Ballena. To that end, I provided Christine with a detailed list of my key criteria and then steeled myself for a long wait and a tedious process of running around checking potential options. Very surprisingly, Christine got back to me in only a few days stating, with some confidence, that she had found a property that was an excellent fit. I was more than a little dubious, but after meeting with Christine and Lance the next day I was astounded to find myself in 100% in agreement within minutes of arriving at the property . It was a near perfect fit to virtually all of my criteria. Christine had clearly "nailed it" on the first try. Throughout the ensuing processes of surveying, inspections and preparing the offer Christine and Lance provided excellent communications and guidance. A few short weeks later (almost exactly a year ago as I write this), I became the proud new owner of my own little piece of jungle paradise. I could not be happier! Nor could I ask for any better experience with real estate agents working so diligently on my behalf. Christine and Lance clearly know their craft, have excellent interpersonal and communication skills. They clearly went the extra mile to assure that I found and acquired my dream property efficiently and within my highly constrained budget. For anyone looking to acquire a property in the Costa Ballena area, I provide my highest possible recommendation to Christine and Lance who I know will give you similar outstanding service in helping you to realize your goals and dreams.”

“Christine and Lance were the best to work with. Buying in a country you are not a resident can be stressful but they had all the answers to all our questions. They were with us every step of the way. I would totally recommend them to anyone looking to buy in Costa Rica. They made the experience Pura Vida! Thanks Christine & Lance!”

“Christine and Lance were pleasant and professional in when they sold my house in Ojochal. They did a good market analysis and came down with the right listing price. It was sold within a short period of time. They also dealt well during the negotiation process and closing went smoothly. I recommend them to other clients with highest enthusiasm.”

“Christine and Lance are wonderful. They really spent time with my wife and me to understand what we were looking for, and then helped narrow our interests to a few homes. We bought our house from the states. They organized everything, video tours, inspections and more. We enjoyed every aspect of working with both, and getting to know them as members of the community. I strongly recommend Christine and Lance if you are looking for a home in the Ojochal area. If we were selling, they would also be the first people I would call.”

“We are so glad to have Christine and Lance help us find and buy our home! They are extremely knowledgeable about the home buying process in Costa Rica, and patiently answered all of our questions and supported us through each step. They are excellent communicators-- responding promptly and following up on tasks so that the process is more smooth and efficient. They are very warm, friendly, and personable. We would highly recommend them to anyone looking to buy a home in Costa Rica!”

“Christine's incredible attention to detail through out the entire process gave me the confidence to move forward with my home purchase in Uvita. Having both Christine and Lance look at the house that I was purchasing was a huge benefit and their opinions were valuable. Christine went above and beyond, even helping me after the purchase. I highly reccomend them”
Cindy Gama
“Christine and Lance were the absolute best with helping us navigate the complex home purchase process in Costa Rica. They were always ready to answer questions, were thorough in helping us view properties, truly listened to our wants and needs, and coordinated all the due diligence activities with our attorney while we were in the US. Their professionalism and true care for the client is unmatched and I highly recommend them to anyone looking for property in the area.”
Fred Korb
“I cannot say enough wonderful things about Christine and Lance!! Christine answered a random email from me concerning a property. There was no way for her to know if I was for real or a tire kicker! Nevertheless, she offered to get on the phone with my wife and I, learned about what we were looking for, and gave us great advice about what was realistic and what was not. When we traveled to Costa Rica, Christine and Lance met us, and from the go you could tell their goal was not to sell me a house, but wanted to help us find our Costa Rican dream. Lance and Christine are what all real estate agents should be!!”
