As a prospective buyer, I consulted with David regarding the local property market, potential challenges as an international second home buyer, as well as specific property details and closing process. David also connected me with his network of professionals such as real estate lawyer. A typical realtor will focus on closing the deal. What sets David apart is truly a consultative trust based approach whereby I felt totally comfortable in the advice and guidance I was getting. I always felt that David has my interest above and beyond his own commercial interest. I truly believe having David on your side is a great start for any prospective buyer or seller.
Once I contacted David Karr about buying a house in Costa Rica, he never gave up. When we arrived in Costa Rica, he had made arrangements to meet with Chris and Joy Gillard since David was out of town. Believe me! They listened and found us our dream home! Chris and Joy were more than realtors, they have so much knowledge about Costa Rica and we now consider them our friends.
I’m so glad they took us seriously and stayed in touch! Thank you so much for continued advice and assistance after the sale! We couldn’t have done this without this team!’
Meg Berns does much more than just sell houses, She takes the time to listen and understand the needs as well as the dreams of potential buyers and makes sure the properties she shows tick all the boxes. Moreover, long after our purchase was finalized, Meg continued to support us by introducing us to property managers who will host our home as a vacation rental when we're not in it and helped us make other community connections to enhance our time when we are here. We would strongly recommend Meg as your real estate agent -- her level of service was way above any other we experienced. She's knowledgeable, operates with a high degree of integrity and genuinely cares about the well being and happiness of her clients.
I had many real estate agents try to assist me with my search, but David set himself apart from the others with his ability to pay attention to exactly what I wanted. He was exceptionally patient with me and spent 2 years with me as a loyal agent to ensure that I found the right home. He also made sure that I was connected to the correct contacts to help with the process of buying and closing the home. He had a lawyer available for me and was always on top of the new laws and rules that apply to purchasing a home and creating an LLC. The process would not have been as smooth if I used another agent.
David treated me like a friend not a paycheck. I would recommend him to anyone because of his vast knowledge of the area, developers, correct contacts and his attention to detail.
