The question may haunt you like it did us…..Why Not Costa Rica?!

Tim Burke

My family and I moved to Costa Rica over 13 years ago in an attempt to live life to the fullest and to pursue our dreams as well as to escape the crazy lifestyle we found ourselves in.

I have been in the Real Estate business for over 20 years both representing clients as well as for my own investment purposes.  I am well versed in investment properties, residential and commercial properties, and all they encompass:  Appraisals, inspections, rental management, ethics, buyers agent specialties and more. I also spent ten years in the financial services industry while maintaining my own personal real estate investments along side of my Real Estate business.  The combination of the two financial arenas allows me to not only compare real estate as an investment option, but also to define the best options for clients.

I enjoy looking at property and trying to provide not only a great investment but a place to call home for my clients. By thinking ‘out of the box’, I am able to look at properties and provide people with a great investment by showing them how they can be diversifying their portfolio, using tax advantages or making the most of their IRA, all while still providing a place to call ‘home’ for them.  Believing that referrals and a good reputation are key to my practice, I focus on going the extra mile to help my clients settle in to their new lifestyle and home.  If you are looking to buy or sell, I would love to help you.

Joe is a Costa Rican native, born and raised in San Ramon, and a graduate of Universidad Nacional (National University of Costa Rica). He loves his family, his people, his culture, and all things Costa Rica!  His ability to understand the nuances of Costa Rica, expats and how the two can work together into a beautiful relationship comes naturally to him.  His fluent language skills and years of close relationships with many expats who now call Costa Rica their home, allow him to provide clients with an overall understanding of where those relocating to Costa Rica are coming from as well as having an integral understanding of their customs, traditions, and needs. This coupled with his knowledge of Real Estate both in Costa Rica and the United States makes him the perfect person to provide the best service to every client.
