"A master with contract negotiations, Wendy came up with a deal that was good for both buyer, & seller. Throughout this process she also managed to scout out other available properties to purchase after our sale. There is nothing that escapes Wendy’s attention when it comes to property for sale in this area.

We found Wendy to be a highly attentive agent, almost as if we were her only customers, although we know that was not the case. She returned all phone calls and emails promptly. We never felt neglected, or unimportant. She is also highly personable, with an engaging personality. Wendy was honest about some minor changes that we needed to make to attract buyers quickly, and her advice worked like a charm."




It is very difficult to look at a property online and know if it's right for you or not.  The best way to know if a place will work for you is to contact us and let us know what it is you want.  Send us an e-mai with your "wish list" and budget so we cane make sure we send you relevant properties. 

Because there is not one universal MLS (multiple listing service), let us help you with your search and figure out which area is right for you.  See our area of coverage below.

"When I decided to purchase property in Costa Rica, Wendy Holt of San Carlos Properties, was referred to me through several people.  She is bilingual and understands the requirements for real estate purchases in Costa Rica.

Making this purchase was nerve wracking for me since I had never purchased property outside of the United States.  Wendy was knowledgeable, confident, thorough and efficient.  She answered all my questions, took time to explain each step in the process and was available when I had questions and concerns.  If I decide to sell or purchase other properties, I will definitely use Wendy Holt."

"I contacted Wendy when I was looking to purchase a business in la Fortuna de Arenal. I found Wendy to be very informative and responsive  to our needs. She made time to meet and show us around and gave us various options to consider. When we asked for financials she worked with the seller to gather all the pertinent information and present it to us in a timely fashion.

She did help facilitate the purchase/sale of the property and went as far as providing transportation to the seller to San Jose at the time of closing.

Since I have referred others to her as I was very pleased with her professional services."
