A Little About Me

I came to Costa Rica in 2004 after I sold my condo in Bayridge, Brooklyn, and quit my job of 10 years in NYC. I originally had plans of moving out to California to live but wanted to take some time off before going back to the 9 to 5 workday. 


In my mind, my perfect life would be where I could enjoy the outdoors, have good weather all year round and be able to spend more time in the ocean. 


I discovered Playas del Coco while taking my divemaster course and decided to stay, trading in my business suits and heels for flip-flops and board shorts. A bonus - no more dreaded 90-minute commute to work and overcrowded subways and sidewalks - partly because they do not have either of these in Coco Beach. I eventually got married to a Costa Rican, and we built our own home in 2010.  You can read more about my story on My About Page.



Costa Rica is one of the most economically and politically stable countries in Central America and is viewed as a safe bet. The number of expats living here part-time is growing each year and we are now seeing many new families relocating with their children. Find homes and villas in Playas del Coco, Playa Hermosa, Playa Panama, Playa Ocotal and other Communities in Guanacaste, Costa Rica.


Now is the best time to invest in the upswing of Costa Ricas real estate market. Rental income can gross you anywhere 6-7% depending how actively you are in marketing your condo. The rental market is strong and with our small town of Playas del Coco hosting the first ever Ironman in the country, you can count on the rental market to explode.


When selling your home, exposure is everything. Leverage my experience and marketing tools to turn ‘selling’ into ‘sold’. Have questions? I’m here to help find answers and provide insights into the local area.

My husband and I had the pleasure of working with Lisa last year when we were purchasing our rental property. As you can imagine it can be a scary thing purchasing outside the United States. We searched website after website, but kept coming back to Lisa’s and we are so happy we did. Lisa was awesome to work with, she was flexible and dependable. The searching and buying process went very smoothly and we couldn't have been happier...Frank & Sarah T.
