Tim was spot on in finding a couple great properties to choose from. He stayed in our budget to find us a great deal on a well constructed home on a beautiful piece of property. I had spent time searching the area and found prices and quality all over the map. Tim was very helpful and knowledgeable, which saved us much time and money. I highly recommend his service. Thank You Tim

Like a majority of expats, I researched the most common Google results regarding living in Costa Rica, and while most were generally accurate and informative, a number of sites were too simplistic, exaggerated, or outright disingenuous. After moving to Costa Rica, reality quickly proved that my knowledge and preparations were somewhat lacking. Laws, costs, and procedures regularly change in paradise which is why nothing compares to relevant, practical, and up-to-date information. “Why Not Costa Rica” rises to the challenge by equipping potential expats with contemporary, sensible and highly-beneficial insights. Tim Burke knows how the game is played and his wide-ranging experience and proven understanding will help you avoid wasting time, energy, and costly mistakes. I wish “Why Not Costa Rica” was available when I made the transition.

Negotiating the slippery slope of renting or purchasing of homes and property in San Ramon Costa Rica or any foreign country is very difficult unless there is a reliable and honest professional firm you can rely on that has had feet on the ground in the country for a number of years and fully understands the necessary elements of successful renting, purchasing property or building in the country. Having lived in San Ramon Costa Rica for some 9 years, and having had homes built for rental and later sales, one should fully realize the potential for disaster if there is not a reliable builder, rental agent and realty firm to rely on.

We have found from our association with Tim Burke @ Why Not Costa Rica that his work fits all of these requirements. He has been involved in the building, rental, and sales of our properties for a number of years in Costa Rica with outstanding results. We have found that Costa Rica, unlike many countries in Latin America, has a very strict building code…. and Tim is aware of how important it is to build to these codes religiously unlike some others who may not be as professional in their building of homes.  We wholeheartedly endorse Tim @ Why Not Costa Rica for any acquiring of property, the building or purchase of homes, or rental thereof.
