Frank and Debra moved to Costa Rica permanently in October 2018.  Having traveled multiple times to Costa Rica seeking the right location they settled on Guanacaste.  
Debra has worked in real estate since 2007, is a member of the National Association of Realtors, Ohio Board of Realtors and CRGAR. Her focus was on residential investment properties and helping clients in the relocation process.  As a residential investment specialist, she sought out potential properties for re-purposing and renovating for the market. This entailed acquiring properties, designing their renovation, marketing the finished product and selling the homes.  At the same time helping clients who were transitioning from other regions to the Cleveland, Ohio area. 
Debra and Frank worked alongside each other in renovating properties, and the design/build of new homes.  Combined they have re-purposed over 45 homes, renovated many more, and built new homes for clients.
Frank has many years within the audio/visual fields as well as construction. Growing up around the construction trades his entire life (his father started a contracting business early on as did many of his uncles) Frank was introduced to all facets of building residential and commercial facilities.  Electrical, plumbing, acoustics, foundation work are all areas he has experience in.
A musician and artist as well, he became an audio engineer in 1985 and later incorporated that with his construction background to manage the build-out of commercial spaces, restaurants, residential and the audio and visual for large scale projects as well as homes. His expertise in surmising a property, it’s condition and what, if any, re-design is needed are assets he shares with his clients.
They look forward to sharing their talents and experiences with you to help find your dream home!


We came to Costa Rica to live a full life.  Not a half-life as we realized we had been living; the environment and climate here allow us to be outdoors nearly the entire year.  Being here has changed our lives substantially.  We have found community, beauty, and a very welcoming atmosphere.
