"In Feb of 2007 my wife and I arrived at Playa Hermosa to find our dream retirement site. We were not quite sure what that was, but knew we were in the right place. ..... On a Sunday morning an agent we had not previously met picked us up at our condo. That agent was Herb DeMars. Herb spent the better part of the next four days showing us various properties, both built, to be built, and sites on which to build. In addition, he gave us the personal guided tour of the entire area, the local eateries, and off-the-path beaches. We were sure we wanted to be there, but still had not seen exactly what we wanted, and really were not quite sure what that was! It now becomes evident that Herb was using his expertise to get to know us and who we really are. When my wife and I were nearing the end of our time, and still had not seen just the right place, Herb did not try to just sell us something, anything, but instead he showed us one last site that he felt after getting to know us was just what we wanted. WOW! What a great job of “reading” us he did in four short days. The final location was our dream. By the final day, we were the proud owners of what will be a piece of paradise for us and our family. It is in an area that we would have never dreamt of looking had Herb not guided us there.
The service did not stop there as after returning to the States, Herb guided us through the purchase process until the papers were finally filed and the property was ours. In addition, he connected us with a builder with whom we have subsequently met and with whom we are as impressed as we are with Herb.
The purchase of property in another country is a huge step for most people, and without confidence in the company and the people with whom you are working, it becomes a daunting task to say the least. Century 21 and Herb DeMars made our experience exciting and fun from first day. I look forward to moving to Costa Rica and a long friendship with Herb and his lovely wife Donna."
