Experience Counts

There is no other real estate company on the North Pacific Coast that has more experience in Costa Rica real estate and/or construction than Re/Max Ocean Surf Realty.

Chris is a Canadian Chartered Accountant who honed his business and investment skills in Canada and England with the international accounting firm Coopers and Lybrand (now Price Waterhouse Coopers). Chris subsequently managed a variety of construction products, manufacturing and distribution businesses, and later administered a number of specialized law practices.
