Jane Klein can be called many wonderful things, but a true “people person” would probably top the list. With a background in communications, construction, and music publishing, interacting with all kinds of people for the past 30 years has helped Jane be able to easily connect with a diverse range of clients.

A native of Florida, Jane began her professional life in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida working in Communications and Broadcasting for the PGA Golf Tour. But, while her career was exciting, she always had a passion for real estate thanks to her family’s brokerage firm.

Jane eventually left the broadcasting world to begin managing the sales and rentals for Universal Environmental Control, a construction development company responsible for building over twenty apartment buildings, as well as the first high-rise condo in the area.

Always up for a challenge, Jane eventually decided to make another career change and became a founding partner in Roadshow Music Corp., a music publishing and production company in the Orlando, Florida area, which was fast becoming the new entertainment center of the south. As the person mainly responsible for managing artists and legal affairs, as well as licensing, Jane soon made many contacts all over the world.

Find Your Dream Life in the Tropics

With the introduction of the Internet, Jane was able to realize a dream of hers. After many trips to Guanacaste throughout the years, she had fallen in love with Costa Rica and decided to make the big move 20 years ago. Working online, she was able to combine her life here with her business ties in Los Angeles, New York, and Florida. And, with the airport in Liberia being so close, travel was a breeze.

Jane soon found herself dipping back into her old passion for real estate when she found herself locating properties in Costa Rica for her many friends and associates she’d met around the world who also wanted to invest in what she calls “The Dream Life of the Tropics.”

If you would also like to invest in your own dream life here in a tropical paradise, get in touch with Jane. She has held a Florida Real Estate License since 1976, participates in all continuing education for that licensure, and is a member of the CRGAR and the NAR here in Costa Rica. Jane’s people skills and many years of experience make her one of KRAIN’s most popular agents.


Dennis comes to Costa Rica via Saskatchewan, Canada where he was born and raised. After 30 years of living and working in Alberta, Dennis packed up his motorhome, said goodbye to the snowy north once and for all, and drove all the way from Edmonton, Alberta to Playa Potrero!

To say Dennis brings an incredible background to KRAIN is truly an understatement. He started his career as a Canadian Master Electrician and held an Alberta Electrical Masters Certificate as well as an Alberta and Interprovincial Electrical "Red Seal.”

Dennis spent over 30 years working in the oil industry in Canada contracting to such companies as Esso, Shell, and BP Amoco, both as a contractor and in management positions. He also spent 16 months in Iraq on contract with the U.S. Government and received the ”82nd Airborne Brigade Support Battalion Award for Outstanding Service” for his work in establishing an Aid Station at FOB Hammer to ensure the safety of civilians and soldiers serving there.

Find Your Place in the Sun

Dennis loves sharing his extensive professional knowledge and passion for real estate and life in paradise with his clients. As the former co-owner of Surfside Properties, a local agency that dealt in real estate sales and property management, as well as the owner of Schmiedge Electric and Home Improvement Company, Dennis helps both buyers and sellers prepare for home inspections and valuate properties.

Dennis believes that everyone should be able to avoid shoveling snow and find their “place in the sun.” He also believes in going above and beyond for clients to help make their dreams a reality.
