Kevin Walters helped us buy our beautiful condo in Costa Rica. We shopped for 5 days, and in that time, he not only showed us condos, but gave us an informative and personable introduction to Jaco, the surrounding area, the people, food and culture of Costa Rica, and particularly, Jaco.
As we shopped, Kevin was readily informative with facts, such as the type of construction, or if beach erosion was an issue, or how much the HOA fees were. He often knew if these fees were about to increase or if they had just been increased. If we had questions that he didn’t know the answer to, and we surely did, he came back with answers quickly. Kevin communicated very well, and he never made us feel inept, dumb or that we were a bother.
He negotiated a “never before” price, and helped us with the purchase process. It is a process. An attorney is required, as is an LLC. He introduced us to an attorney whom we found very easy to work with. He introduced us to a banker, who was very helpful in sharing the mortgage process, for those who aren’t Costa Rican. This information confirmed our original decision to use our IRA LLC for a full price purchase. Kevin introduces us to a very patient CPA, who explained the tax liabilities, tax season (October 1 – September 30), and who, after we made our purchase, walked us over to the bank and assisted with our opening an account.
In short, we would recommend him as a realtor, and he’s a pretty nice guy, too.
