Finding a great realtor in Costa Ballena is not as easy as it may seem, although there are many to choose from. Some people choose their real estate agent based on global brand recognition. Others may be referred to an agent by friends and acquaintances. Still others will walk into the first local real estate office they come across and ask about what they have available for sale. 

Where problems arise can often only be seen after a transaction has been completed; when the property purchaser may learn over time that their realtor has neglected to show other brokerage listings or omitted important information that could have landed them a better deal.

Good realtors will have a well-managed website with lots of great listings for buyers to peruse on their own time. 


Pocket Listings

A great realtor will additionally have an arsenal of pocket listings that, for one reason or another, have not been listed yet.

Zeroing In

A great realtor will show their buyers properties based on their criteria of wants and needs, all while narrowing down from the hundreds of properties for sale, including those that are not quite ‘on the market.’ Great realtors know people in the local community who would consider selling, even though their property is not formally listed.


Staying Informed

There is a lot to know about our dynamic real estate market and staying informed is one of the flagstones of a good agent. A great agent will go a step beyond and update their clients on the real estate market, offering regular updates on new listings, price adjustments, listing status changes, walkthrough videos, and lots of ‘how-to’ videos and articles that are helpful guides for people at the beginning stages of moving to Costa Rica, without adding any pressure to transact.
