Sometimes I smile when I think of all the adventures I have had in the 25 years I have lived in Costa Rica.


More than half of that time has been spent living the dream at the beach in real estate sales and development in Flamingo Beach and just north of the border up in Nicaragua. I am married to Jacqui and we have a nineteen year old daughter called Melissa who is studying Product Design. We also have three very demanding dogs two of whom we rescued and spoil horribly. I enjoy playing tennis, squash, and swimming and have played several international cricket matches for the Costa Rican national cricket team as an all-rounder.

Having owned various businesses in Costa Rica and worked in several different fields, as well as being fully bilingual, I consider myself as having a broad background and understanding as to how things work in Costa. As Director of Sales and Marketing and a partner in the very successful Residencias Oceanica condominium development in Flamingo Beach I helped generate $14,000,000 in sales almost entirely at the pre-construction stage and also played a significant role in obtaining environmental and building permits, liaising with the Municipality, writing and preparing brochures and contracts and liaising with condo purchasers to make sure their units were completed to their satisfaction. During this period I was also active selling other real estate properties in both Flamingo Beach and further up the coast in a sister project in Nicaragua.


I am truly excited at having been offered the opportunity to return to Flamingo and Tamarindo to work in an area and a business which I feel very comfortable in and to be able to revisit with old friends and business colleagues. I am also thrilled to be part of the Coldwell Banker Team in Tamarindo. In Costa Rica (as anywhere) it is vital that the realtor you work with has the desire and capacity to best represent your interests be it as a Buyer or a Seller and I have always derived great pleasure from completing deals in which all parties feel they have been treated fairly and within a totally transparent environment.

I feel that the members of the Coldwell Banker team in Tamarindo abide by the same real estate philosophy as I do and with their phenomenal real estate turnover, I look forward to being able to contribute toward making their business even more successful in the future.
