Recognize Sarah?  Sarah has been features on 8 episodes of House Hunters International.  She has also been on the show Jungle Life.  


Sarah, as a United States attorney and founding partner of KRAIN Costa Rica, Sara Breitlander educates clients, both home owners and commercial investors, of the varying laws pertaining to real estate ownership in the U.S. and Costa Rica. She received her Juris Doctor Degree from the John Marshall Law School in 2003 and was the recipient of many academic awards including the Fred F. Herzog Scholarship Award, the Edith, and Philip Baim Scholarship Award, and the Dean’s Scholarship for Academic Achievement.

After graduation, Sarah certainly did not rest on her academic laurels, but instead set Chicago’s legal industry on fire. In 2012, she was named among Chicago’s top “40 Under 40” Illinois attorneys to watch. She was also named an Illinois “Rising Star” in Super Lawyers Magazine, a distinction reserved for the top 2.5% of Illinois lawyers who are under 40.

Having achieved great professional success in the states, it was time for Sarah to make a change. Like so many before her, Sarah came to Costa Rica seeking a better quality of life for her and her family.

After cofounding KRAIN, Sarah set her sights on cofounding KRAIN Costa Rica Property Management, the premier property management company for luxury and vacation homes along the beaches of Tamarindo, Playa Flamingo, Playa Potrero, Playa Conchal, and Playa Ocotal. Her passion, professional and extensive leadership were coming together to shape a new life and career for Sarah. In the midst of these verdant hills and golden stretches of beach, Sarah discovered Pura Vida for herself and she wants to help others do the same.

Pura Vida Can Be Yours

Sarah and her family enjoy their new life near the ocean in the Guanacaste region. As a member of the Costa Rica Global Association of Realtors (CRGAR) and a Certified International Property Specialist (CIPS), Sarah is positioned to help families and investors find their dream property and realize their financial goals.

If you’re looking to work with an agent with passion, excitement and a commitment to excellence, you’ll definitely want to get in touch with Sarah.  Sarah and her husband Peter work together as the BREITLANDER TEAM.
