- About this Agent: Your Atenas and La Garita real estate Specialists
Howard and Isabelle Jones
We are Isabelle and Howard Jones and we fell in love with Costa Rica and Atenas in particular when we first visited the country in 1991.
We fulfilled our dream/goal by moving to beautiful Atenas in January, 2003 from Colorado, U.S.A.
When we looked to buy property in Atenas we quickly found that a full service professional realtor for the Atenas area was really the only thing missing to make their move easier.
After searching for the right way for over a year, we decided to become the GoDutch Realty franchisee for the Atenas area, since that would give us the opportunity to master the difficulties of real estate in this beautiful country.
We have over 15 years of property/casualty insurance and computer sales. We speak English, Polish and handle ourselves well in Spanish. Of course we are supported by the other GoDutch Realty offices for anything we (or our) might need.
We not only sell properties in Atenas. We show our clients everything that is needed to know to be able to live in Atenas. We will show you the restaurants in Atenas and will tell you which one serves the best food. We will also show you where the best shopping in Atenas is and where to find a real estate attorney in Atenas.
Living in Atenas is awesome. We can say so because we live in Atenas ourselves and are very happy here.
Our main job is to make you feel at home in Atenas and surrounding areas. We’ll be there for you long after the closing on your property. And if you ever plan to leave, we will with pleasure help you with the sale of your property in Atenas.
If you need to look around for a while, we can also help you to look for a house for rent in Atenas.
Isabelle and Howard expect to go the extra mile for all of those who plan to make Atenas and surrounding areas their new home.
