Wonderful vacation and Costa Rica experience

March 07:

Arturo, Ellyn and I want to thank you and Rod P. for helping provide our family a most wonderful vacation and Costa Rica experience. The house was beautiful and served us well but also a special thanks goes to a delightful and profession person, Lucia Munoz. She was fantastic in providing a warm welcome and constant assistance in helping us plan our daily activities. Additionally, pool maintenance and housekeeping support by Hilbert and Geraldine (not sure on spelling) was the best.

Ellyn and I look forward to coming back to Costa Rica and the "Hilltop House" again in the future. You may use us for a reference concerning this rental if you desire.

Most Sincerely,

Robert and Ellyn Cooley.

1st Class Service!

There is no other phrase for the personalized service I have received from Properties in Costa Rica in general and Arturo Guzman specifically. Before coming to Costa Rica I did some on-line research and talked with people who had a variety of associations with Costa Rica. This prompted me to vacation here with the idea of potentially purchasing property for retirement. I had contacted Properties in Costa Rica through e-mail on numerous occasions and this eventually led to having a staff pick me up at my hotel, for viewing of specific properties. The final property Arturo showed me has resulted in the following: - I questioned why I was continuing to live in Canada when I hated the winters, I decided to retire, I bought the property, I handed in my resignation, I sold my loft in Canada, I moved to Costa Rica, - all within 3 months. At no time in the past year have I had any doubts about these decisions.

The services provided by Properties in Costa Rica were not limited to the showing and selling of property. Information was provided on the benefits of establishing a Costa Rican corporation for the property and a referral to a real estate legal firm. When I arrived here Arturo met me at the airport, took me to arrange a car rental, showed me where to purchase household items and groceries, he then took me to my new house.

Throughout my interactions with Arturo, he has consistently demonstrated honesty, integrity, professionalism, and a dedication to his clients that endures past the cashing of the final check.
