Hola Mari, solo para decir que agradezco mucho todo el apoyo y profesionalismo para el cierre de la venta del condo. Muchas gracias por todo, espero colaborar nuevamente en el futuro y por cualquier cosa estamos en contacto


I want to thank you and your team for your efficiency and promptness. I will certainly recommend your company, Palm Real Estate, should anyone ask me about real estate in Costa Rica. Thank you again for everything.

Regards to you and your team

Hi Mari, Thanks for making the sale of my condo go so smooth, it’s been good working with you.

I’m glad you were able to make this sale so fast, it was on the market a short time!

Looking forward to seeing you again on my next visit in November.


Take care,
Randy Artman

Dear Mari,

My husband and I want to thank you for being so diligent and so professional in helping us find the type of property we wanted. You are surrounded by a great team. We appreciate all the help we got from Eduardo, Lina and even Emilia, the cleaning lady who left our studio spotless after all the repairs that were done.

In your contact with us you made us feel like if we were investing a million dollars.

You treated us with so much respect and you replied to all our emails and all our questions.

It was a joy to work with you and I'm glad we met you that day in a local restaurant.

We appreciated your honesty when you told us about the legal problems in the first property we wanted to buy.

If we ever decide to sell or to buy again we will choose you.

Thanks again.

We purchased property with Mari Brenes as our agent in Guanacaste. We can’t express our gratitude enough as she kindly and professionally found answers to all our questions and guided us through every step of the process in the purchase. She is diligent, honest and sincere and really cares about her clients interests and needs. We continue to communicate with her as we have found a friend in what usually is a professional relationship. We would not hesitate to send anyone her way if they are desiring to move to Costa Rica.

I have dealt with many real estate companies in Costa Rica over the last ten years. Palm Real Estate has been by far the most responsive and professional. Mari made herself available even on a moments notice and the whole process went very smoothly. My seller and I didn't speak the same language but Elizabeth did a great job making sure we both understood everything as we went which is important when you are in a foreign country and don't speak the language well. By closing I was confident that all the paperwork was in order and well organized. Even after the sale the staff has been very helpful in getting me settled into my new home and has helped me to understand the way the bills are taken care of and helped me ot open a foreign checking account. I can't say enough positive things about my experience. I will definitely use Palm Real Estate for my future transactions in Costa Rica

"What can I say about Palm Real Estate.... The nicest, most helpful and honest people I have had the pleasure of doing business with in a long time. They made what can be a stressful event (buying a home), into the real pleasure and joy that it should be..... they have remained friends long after the papers were signed, and are always there to help with anything we need"

This year our family decided that it was time to buy the beach house we always dreamed of and, thanks to Mari Brenes and the staff of Palm Real Estate, our dream came true. They looked for options which fitted our budget but also complied with our wish-list and, in a couple of days, they found what we were looking for: a home near the ocean. We thank Palm Real Estate for their help and, without a question, we recommend their services!
