Andrew was my main point of contact at Re/Max when he I was considering a retirement home in or around Atenas.
He planned a schedule of visits to suitable homes over a couple of days and gave me a detailed and very honest idea of how life would be in Atenas and Costa Rica.
During the visit I decided to buy a plot of land near the centre of Atenas and design and build my own home, and a couple of weeks later Andrew showed me a huge number of lots in the area all of which could have been used for the project. The one I eventually selected had a superb view over the town of Atenas and the Central Valley and Andrew took the time to show me the lot during the daytime and during the evening when it was dark and the view transformed into a delightful array of coloured lights in the surrounding countryside.
Andrew agreed to be my power of attorney so that there would be no problems on signing contracts when I had returned home after my visit and the legal aspects of the purchase proceeded swiftly and without problems. The house was designed along with an excellent local architect and I moved into the new house the following year.
Andrew was a key factor in my reasons to move to Atenas and undertake the project. After talking with Andrew I felt that I had a good understanding of the risks and potential problems inherent in the project and the move to a new country. Now that I have been here for about four years I believe the information he gave me was given in a straightforward and honest manner.
