Residential & Vacation Properties in Costa Rica.

With their intimate knowledge of the area, they can provide up to the minute information so clients can make highly informed decisions about their real estate options.

Careers in real estate are far removed from where Nadene and Roland first embarked on their previous careers. Nadene graduated as an X-ray Technologist in 1977 and continued to work in that field for nearly 20 years. While in her early 30’s, Nadene returned to college and hit the books again to obtain a diploma in Business Administration with a major in Marketing.
With her studies complete, Nadene then obtained a position in the Sales Department of Frigidaire Canada, an appliance manufacturer. In 1995 she ventured out on her own and started a computer training company that she ran for over 10 years. She then moved on to join her husband as Bookkeeper/Manager of his trucking and warehouse business.
While all this was happening Nadene and Roland were also busy purchasing investment properties throughout Western Canada. In 2009 Nadene changed course yet again to pursue her current career as a real estate agent in Costa Rica.
Success With Their Own Real Estate InvestmentsMeans They Are More Than Capable Of Helping You.
Roland owned a successful trucking company for over 30 years where he was responsible for delivering appliances to retail stores as well as to onsite construction projects. Roland soon added warehousing to the business plan. With a large contract from Pitney Bowes, the business grew into a multi-faceted company that also assembled and distributed photocopiers and mailing equipment throughout all of Alberta and South Eastern BC.
This particular facet of the business also involved training the client in the operation of the new equipment. The business was sold in 2006, from which point on Roland joined his wife in pursuing a career in real estate in the beautiful country of Costa Rica.
Roland and Nadene are proud to be located in the Guanacaste area that is just starting to buzz with activity and growth. With new businesses and hotels being announced weekly they believe this growth will be a continuing trend for many years to come.
They attribute a good portion of this growth to the influx of baby boomers looking to retire and casting an eye towards Costa Rica as the perfect location to spend the next 5-10 years.
Many baby boomers are temporary residents, choosing to stay only 6 months of the year in Costa Rica. This opens up new opportunities when those properties become available to rent during the owner’s absence. New hotels and businesses need staff; and the staff will require a place to live. This is keeping the pressure on the rental property market, especially for long-term rental options.

“Buying property has never been so quick and simple. A fast understanding of their customer wants and needs, combined with a great knowledge base of construction, builders, contractors, preferred areas, amenities, laws / bylaws, lawyers and escrows has made the buying process the best we have experienced.
With most Realtors, their job stops with the sale, but not with Roland and Nadene. Their continued assistance to ensure their customers’ understanding of all aspects of living in Costa Rica, from where and when to pay bills, where to shop, find services, how to set up bank accounts, and all the new and best restaurants / entertainment has provided a much smoother transition from North America, to Central America.
There are not enough words to convey our many thanks – we couldn’t have done it without you.” Pierre & Mary-Ann Tourangeau.

“We have had the pleasure working with Nadene & Roland on two purchases in Costa Rica (land purchase & condo purchase). When we decided we would start searching in Costa Rica for a retirement property, we didn’t know exactly what we were looking for – Nadene & Roland happily showed us available options, from land to condos, from Ocotal to Hermosa.
They patiently answered our many questions that arise when buying property from a different country and were always available via email when we needed them. It is extremely important when buying a property — to have an experienced agent who has a network of people who can make the process a smooth one — Nadene & Roland have a trusted network from lawyers to landscapers.
Their assistance doesn’t stop once the purchase is complete — Nadene & Roland continue to be a source of information and assistance beyond the transaction. And — we are happy to be able to call Nadene & Roland friends and look forward to seeing them during our trips back to Costa Rica.” Michael & Shannon Calamito

“We met Nadine & Roland Tipper in May of 2014 and they have been instrumental in making our search for a home in Costa Rica pleasurable and worry-free.
They are the two best real estate agents we have ever had the pleasure of working with. On short notice, they were able to show us a wide spectrum of properties that allowed us to pick the right solution for us.
Not only did they help us find our ocean view dream lot, but consistently went over and above all expectations. They found us a reliable and experienced contractor, and provided contacts for an interior designer, and both our real estate and immigration lawyers. Talk about full service! They always took the time out of their busy schedule to provide any information we required for other needs, from maintenance personnel, to leads for cars, places to shop, restaurants, and etc..
They put us at ease through an exciting, but potentially stressful time.
We are moving to our dream home in October 2015 and look forward to seeing them again. They have our strongest endorsement, and we would highly recommend Nadine and Roland to anyone searching for a property in Costa Rica.” Ken and Danuta Kitay.
