It can be daunting to buy a home or vacation retreat under any circumstance, but especially if you’re unfamiliar with a location or country. Jim and Rene Aoki have lived fulltime at Lake Arenal, Costa Rica, for over 18 years, and they state, “We live the Pura Vida life. Our property is filled with exotic wildlife; we have scores of pets, and a riot of fruit trees. Our many years here in Costa Rica are a benefit to clients looking for the perfect property. We will give you the inside knowledge that only long-time locals can provide. Our extensive knowledge and willingness to serve our customers is reflected in their comments below.”

…I also wanted to make a note about Rico Realty (Jimmy and Rene Aoki), as we currently have our property listed with them. I must stress that they have the highest levels of honesty and integrity and would represent you in a very professional way. I have known them for over 12 years and when it came time to choose a team to represent our property, we chose them. They are absolutely the best real estate broker in the Lake Arenal area…

We have now done various transactions with them and all have gone extremely smoothly. They helped us set up our corporation, get our bank account, telephone etc. They keep up to date with the almost daily changes in Costa Rican law and even more important, they know every property they show and will be sure that you know both the pros and cons of the property you are considering before you commit to a purchase. Jim, Rene and Elisabeth are some of the nicest and most ethical people we know and have made our move to Costa Rica an easy transition.
