Dan Williams

Dan has consistently been one of the top performers in the Tamarindo office since he joined us in 2020, this was most recently demonstrated by successfully closing one of the largest residential deals the Tamarindo real estate market has seen mid way through last year. This along with his success in selling hotels, businesses, homes and condos has seen him consistently recognized by Coldwell Banker as one of the top performing agents in the country.
Dan came to Costa Rica in 2015 on the back end of a 9 month surfing sabbatical from his native England. After having spent over 10 years in sales there, including automotive sales, recruitment and B2B account management, his idea was to clear his mind, improve his surfing and return to England to continue his passion for sales. After 9 months of traveling South and Central America it was always going to be difficult to go back!
Since deciding to move to Costa Rica at the end of 2015 Dan has been involved in a number of local businesses including Hostel management, Restaurant management, Property management and the ownership and operation of a successful tour company in Tamarindo, all benefitting from his sales approach.
Julia is a dynamic and driven young woman who was born and raised in the Netherlands. She always had a strong interest in exploring new cultures and living in different parts of the world. That's why, after her first solo trip to Central America, she decided to take the leap and move to Costa Rica in 2017.
Since then Julia has gained extensive experience in all aspects of the sales sphere, which has benefitted her excellent communication and interpersonal skills. Her ability to connect with people from all walks of life has made her an asset in any setting, especially a melting pot of a town with people from all corners of the globe!
Together they make a great team!! With Julia's energy and drive coupled with Dan's vast experience of the local market and contacts they really are hard to beat as your next realtors. The abundance of highly positive testimonials are evidence of this.
Part of the reasons for their success is that they are committed to understanding their clients real estate needs and goals and will leave no stone unturned in the qualification of what your dream property looks like. This allows them to smoothly work in tandem whilst using their industry contacts to ensure that their clients achieve success in their transactions.

“My wife and I recently worked with Dan Williams to buy a house in Playa Langosta. Dan knows the Tamarindo and Langosta area like the back of his hand and is a joy to work with. With Dan’s help, the entire process was very smooth and extremely professional. On top of that he’s been such a great resource for local recommendations that I feel like I’m always getting the inside scoop. We are in the process of looking for a second home here and wouldn’t dream of working with anyone else. Highly recommended!!!”

“Dan Williams was amazing to work with! He is very organized and professional yet personal! We were only in town for a short time and Dan was able to get us set up with several showings. He expanded our knowledge on the area and helped us fall in love with a place we would of never thought to look at! He knows how to help you find what you are looking for. We put in an offer and purchased our first property in Costa Rica! Though the entire process Dan was very helpful and stayed in constant communication. Even after we closed, Dan has still been so helpful with any questions we have!”

“I was introduced to Dan Williams when I enquired about a listing of his through the website during the early days of my search for a property in Tamarindo. Dan promptly replied and provided me with a wealth of information that assisted me in making the decision to purchase a property in Costa Rica. I was sent a list of properties that met my criteria ahead of my arrival in Tamarindo and Dan dedicated the necessary time to show me a range of properties. After making the offer and leaving Costa Rica Dan continued to manage the process through assistance with the lawyers, building inspector and other professionals. He continues to be available to answer any questions I have with respect to the area. I would highly recommend Dan to anyone looking to make a purchase in the area!”

“Dan is a fantastic real estate agent who is highly professional, dependable, patient, and kind. He was very communicative & comprehensive in the sale of various properties here in Playa Tamarindo—from beginning to end. Even after the sales, he followed up with both us and the buyers to ensure that all was in order and that we were fully satisfied. Highly recommended to work with Dan for a smooth and stress-free experience.”

“Dan, thank you for all of your help acquiring my home and property in Tamarindo. You really went above and beyond to answer all of my questions and negotiate all the details to resolution. We will do business again.”

We feel very fortunate to have worked with Dan Williams during our home purchase. Dan is personable, attentive, and informed. He provided exceptional service and made the home buying process easy.

Dan is very knowledgeable about the greater Tamarindo area. He also connected us with excellent professionals throughout the process: inspector, attorney, escrow manager, land surveyor.

We have also been kept up-to-date on things happening in the area and been given great suggestions for dining, sightseeing, and shopping. Dan provided guidance during an urgent, non-real estate situation as well, for which I am still grateful. We recommend Dan and his team wholeheartedly!

I rarely write reviews, but felt compelled to write a 5-star review for Dan Williams at Coldwell Banker Tamarindo. My girlfriend and I connected with Dan on one of his listings and he juggled his schedule to show us the home as we were leaving town the same day. Upon meeting Dan we found him extremely insightful, likable, and trustworthy. Dan had some great suggestions for how to add additional value to the property we were viewing. We weren't really thinking we would formally offer on the property upon scheduling the showing, but Dan's vision for the property and expertise gave us comfort and confidence to make an offer on a property in a foreign country. Dan did a wonderful job navigating our interests and his sellers, and we reached a mutually agreeable purchase price. Dan then made great introductions and referrals for us to skilled lawyers, contractors and property managers. 5 stars all around. Thanks Dan!

We had the pleasure of being introduced to Dan Williams by our daughter and her husband in July 2022. They purchased a condo in Tamarindo with Dan and he came highly recommended to us. We fell in love with CR (who couldn't) and when we returned home we contacted Dan to look at potential property in Tamarindo and the surrounding area for ourselves.

Dan was very professional and helped us to navigate the process of purchasing property in CR. He answered our "many" questions quickly and to the point. With his knowledge of the area and his real estate expertise, we purchased a home in Playa Grande. He was "our eyes" in CR and gave us an honest opinion of the property. Dan not only got us through the sale but provided referrals for legal representation, escrow services, site survey and the home inspection.

Thanks to Dan and his wonderful team, everything went smoothly. We cannot thank Dan enough for his help and would highly recommend him to anyone looking to purchase property in CR. Cheers to Dan!

Dan was phenomenal to work with, I would highly recommend him if looking to buy a home in Costa Rica. I found Dan online and he was incredibly helpful over email as we searched for properties/worked to familiarize ourselves with the area. We visited Tamarindo over the holiday and he took time to drive us around, being honest with his opinion along the way. We found a house and after 1 million questions (from me, that he patiently answered) ... we ditched the idea and bough a lot in Playa Langosta. He was patient, professional and always helpful. We absolutely consider Dan a friend!

Dan was so wonderful to work with. Relocating from Canada is very stressful, but he listened to exactly what we were looking for and found us the perfect home. He took literally 90% of the stress away!

Callum Girard

A-ma-ZING. Is all I can say about working with Dan Williams. We have purchased two properties with Dan and it couldn’t have gone smoother . Along with his assistant Julia they are the utmost in patient, helpful and whenever they don’t have the answers they get them for you. Would recommend to anyone looking to buy a house in Tamarindo or surrounding areas.

We met Dan Williams in May 2022. He showed us several homes and amoung them was what turned out to be 'our' home. Move in day was July 2022! The home was not finished at the time of purchase and Dan was our eyes and ears as the home was completed (we live in Ontario, Canada). He was very attentive to details on our behalf and we were thrilled with the finished product. Once the home was purchased, he did not disappear. He provided us with much support especially with getting our internet up and running (we don't speak Spanish...yet!) and information like where to shop for specific items, different restaurants for different meals, things to do locally and throughout Costa Rica, and some insights about the area and Costa Rica in general. We were lucky to find him. He and his co-worker Julia have created a website with the information he gave to us and more. We have referred to it many times and are looking forward to using more of their suggestions when we return in February.
Thank you again Dan!

Recently my wife and I decided to purchase a place in Costa Rica. We did not know where to start. We had worked with Coldwell Banker Realty in the U.S. so we just made a cold call. By sheer luck, we connected with Dan.

Working with Dan from another country was so easy, and it only got better in person. He sincerely wanted to help us find what we wanted, and it was like he was purchasing the home with us, not for us. He listened and guided us like no other realtor has in our past. Never pushy, he always put himself in our shoes - buying in a foreign country with no knowledge of language and customs.

After this experience, we consider Dan part of our family. He continues to help us with anything we need, whether we are at home in the U.S. or while in CR. He’s truly the best.

When I decided to buy a house in Costa Rica, I found Dan Williams of Caldwell Banker online. Before I arrived in Tamarindo for the house hunt, Dan began giving me straightforward guidance that would later prove invaluable during the buying process. He was always more interested in helping me to make good decisions than in making a sale. Dan knew the Costa Rican real estate laws and market, which was invaluable every step of the way. Even after the closing, Dan continues to be willing to help me in my new role as a property owner in Costa Rica. I highly recommend Dan Williams if you are looking for a solid real estate professional.

Kristina Goodall

Dan is a very competent, dynamic real estate agent who works in the Coldwell Banker agency in Tamarindo. You will be able to appreciate his availability and his professionalism during the first contact and then throughout the course of the sales process. He always knew how to answer the many legal and tax questions until the signing of the sale of our house. We tested other agencies in the Brasilito area but we did not find a real estate agent as invested, honest and available as Dan. In summary you want to sell a property, I recommend Dan 100%, trust him you will not regret it

Dan Williams helped me selling my house in Playa Tamarindo, Costa Rica. Super professional real estate sales agent who was always very kind, fun, helpful, supportive, super friendly and always available! Dan is just fantastic to work with!  He was and is incredible.  Professional, polite, humble, patient, kind, approachable and understanding in every way 🙂🙏 Dan was recommended to me by a Costa Rican friend who successfully sold their apartment with him in town some months earlier! Dan goes above and beyond for his clients and always acts in their best interest. I absolutely recommend Dan to be your partner in crime when in comes to real estate adventures

Sophie Johannsmann

After visiting Tamarindo a few years back, we fell in love with the area and talked about owning a place of our own for a few years. Well, we made the decision last winter to start looking. We first started searching homes for sale in the Tamarindo area and tried to connect with some Real Estate Agents to get additional information on properties - thinking we could line up some to look at next time we visited. Most wouldn’t give us the time of day – except Dan Williams with Coldwell Banker. I can’t say enough good things about how Dan worked with us and made us feel comfortable purchasing a home without actually being in Costa Rica! Dan responded very quickly, he is very knowledgeable and actually anticipated a lot of the questions we were going to ask. Dan made the process simple and everything went extremely smooth. Dan introduced us to all of the needed team members to get us to across the finish line! If you’re looking for a great, five-star experience purchasing real estate in the Tamarindo area look Dan up!

My wife and I were looking for a condo in the Tamarindo area and I came across Dan Williams at Coldwell Banker. He could not be more professional and ready to help. This guy is 1st Class all the way and will easily navigate Expats through the process. Could not recommend more!

Chris Jackson
We hadn’t planned on buying a property in Costa Rica! While searching for a month’s rental in Tamarindo, we discovered a home for sale in our ideal location. Excited about the possibility of buying, we needed guidance. We Googled, “best real estate agent in Tamarindo” and that’s how we found Dan Williams from Coldwell Banker. As long-distance buyers from Canada, we had numerous questions and concerns. Dan spent an initial hour with us over Zoom, realistically explaining real estate purchase in Costa Rica. When we decided to take the plunge and buy, Dan expertly guided us step by step through the process – negotiations, due diligence, home inspection, legal paperwork, and more. Dan found us an experienced real estate lawyer and also provided a list of recommended property managers. His assistant Julia was also very helpful. We highly recommend Dan and his team to anyone looking for real estate in Tamarindo!
