Sarah Breitlander | Owner | Broker | Attorney

Sarah Breitlander is the co-owner of KRAIN Luxury Real Estate. She has been featured on the popular television show House Hunters International multiple times, as well as on HGTV’s Jungle Life.

Before moving to Costa Rica, Sarah spent a decade as a successful commercial litigation attorney at one of the top law firms in Chicago, Illinois. Among her achievements was being named one of Chicago’s top “40 Under 40” attorneys to watch in 2012; working for both a Federal District Judge and an Illinois Supreme Court Justice; and being named, for five consecutive years, an Illinois “Rising Star” in Super Lawyers Magazine, a distinction reserved for the top 2.5% of Illinois lawyers who are under 40.

Despite all of her professional success in Chicago, Sarah felt that something was missing. The workload, long hours, and stress of her career had negatively affected her quality of life. In 2013, her husband, Peter, convinced her that she should take the chance—just one chance—to move out of her comfort zone and see if she could find success in having a business of her own along the beautiful shores of Costa Rica.

In Costa Rica, Sarah found the perfect place to take back her life, raise a family, and appreciate every day. Her career as an owner/broker of KRAIN gives her extreme satisfaction. As stated by Sarah, “I have the privilege—and it is a privilege—of helping others find their place in paradise. My new job allows me to help others enhance their quality of life and spend more time with their loved ones. What can be better than that?”

Shortly after founding KRAIN Luxury Real Estate in 2013, Sarah and Peter founded KRAIN Property Management and Vacation Rentals, which has quickly become one of the premier property management and vacation rental companies in the Guanacaste region of Costa Rica.

Sarah and her team not only assist clients purchase homes in Costa Rica, but they also help with anything her clients need in order to ensure a peaceful transition into Costa Rica life. Sarah and her team watch over the client’s investment; counsel on any new laws that affect clients; introduce clients to all of the appropriate legal, accounting, and tax professionals; assist with the opening of Costa Rican bank accounts; and offer full management and accounting services.

Sarah and Peter live on Potrero Beach with their two young daughters. As Sarah states, “We are truly blessed to raise a family here in paradise.” They are passionate about their community and give back through the Kaiser Breitlander Memorial Fund, which sponsors local, underprivileged children, providing them with a quality, bilingual education at the La Paz Community School.

Peter Breitlander.jpgPeter Breitlander | Owner | Managing Broker

Peter Breitlander is a U.S. accredited real estate broker and co-founder of the highly successful brokerage KRAIN Chicago.  In 2002, Peter began his career working for an internationally-recognized real estate brokerage. It wasn’t long before he rose to become one of the brokerage’s top-producing agents.  Fast-forward to 2005, when Peter became a co-founder of KRAIN Corporation (a/k/a KRAIN Chicago), a highly successful boutique real estate brokerage specializing    in luxury homes and commercial investments. He and a team of over 40 agents handled thousands of successful transactions, some of which were very high-profile.  Always one with a finger on the pulse of the global market, Peter began to sense that the Costa Rica real estate market was heating up. Recognizing a need for professional services to accommodate this growth, he expanded his company’s reach to include KRAIN Costa Rica in 2013.  Peter and Sarah Breitlander co-founded KRAIN Costa Rica.  KRAIN Chicago has since merged with Compass back in 2018.  

When it comes to real estate buying and selling, you could say that Peter is a one-stop shop. With over 20 years in the market, Peter offers solid expertise in “all things real estate,” including buying and selling residential properties, property development, construction, commercial real estate and real-estate investment.
