At A1 Real Estate, we pride ourselves on being unique and providing a consultative approach. The very first thing we do is meet with our clients (either face to face or via phone/video conference) and ask questions. A lot of questions. We want to know about YOU and what YOU want. It is only then, that we can fully help. And you know what? Sometimes we can’t. If that’s the case, we will tell you up front and not waste your time. Want to know more? Fill out the inquiry form below and we will reach out to you shortly. And yes, we respond quickly to all requests… We believe in GREAT customer service!
Often our clients have not yet moved to Costa Rica. There are many things to consider when you move to a foreign country. Many questions focus around this aspect. Things are not the same here as they may be in your home country. And that’s ok. We also offer Relocation Services which not only help you in finding the home of your dreams, but helps with the entire process from dream phase to actually living the dream.

I am originally from Switzerland, but have lived most of my adult life in the US. I am fluent in German, Swiss-German, English and proficient in Spanish. I have been coming to Costa Rica since 2007, and have made it my permanent home since the end of 2016. Being a owner of a small B&B in Nuevo Arenal has introduced me to a more relaxed way of living, that most expats and foreigners are looking to find. Having been in the service industry for most of my life, I truly enjoy helping people and listening to their needs and wants. Being married to a local has opened my eyes to see and accept Costa Rica for the beautiful country it is.

I obtained my Real Estate license in 2000, and specialized in Luxury Home Sales, Short Sales, Foreclosures and enjoyed working closely with clients to assist them with their needs. Having a background also in Architecture and Construction brought more to the table for my clients.
Living for so many years in the very hot and ‘beige’ desert of Las Vegas, not to mention the hectic lifestyle of an all too busy Real Estate agent, it was time to seek out a more relaxed, healthier way of life. This desire for a ‘better way of life’ brought us to Costa Rica, where we have resided since 2017. There really is something to the “Pura Vida” way and I have embraced it wholeheartedly. Between gardening ,shopping at the local Feria, baking or cooking using some of our exotic vegetables and fruits, hiking, volunteering within the community, adventure trips to see more of our beautiful country, playing sports, practicing Spanish, or simply relaxing – days are full and satisfying here.
My sincere desire to assist others pursue their Real Estate dreams has always been my goal, both in the US and now here in Costa Rica. I look forward to meeting and working with you to that end.
