Tired of being stressed, pressured at work or stuck in traffic for hours? if you are reading this blog, it likely means that you are going through the process of changing your lifestyle. Well, then you just knocked on the right door. Costa Rica and more specifically Tamarindo and the area where we, REMAX agents, are working. It is the place where all your dreams will come true.
Me, like maybe you tomorrow, came from France 7 years ago for those reasons. Not only I found peace, joy and love, but I also found out that Costa Rica has also a lot of business opportunities to offer.
Unlike all those hyper developed countries where it is all about competition and you have to fight every day for each penny you are making, we are enjoying a much slower pace down here and a way friendlier environment. It doesn’t mean you don’t have to work to make it happen but you will quickly realize that there is silver lining of living in Costa Rica.
Beautiful beaches, amazing weather, Costa Rica as a true democracy also offers foreigners a greater peace and more consistent political stability compared with many of its fellow Latin America nations. Nowadays, when you see what is going on in the world, this is certainly something to consider in your reasoning.
Like you, I went to that process before, and as difficult as it might look sometimes, it is not that hard. Trust your gut, believe in yourself and make the move. You might be concerned you are going to fail but wouldn’t it be worse to fail by not trying and live the rest of your life with eternal regrets..?? Exactly, that is when we enter the game. Us, as professionals real estate agents, are here to advise and guide you to make that move and help you to succeed.
Most of us are not only REMAX Agents but we are also all involved in our community and that allows us to clear the path for you. On a personal level, I own myself an Asian restaurant in Tamarindo with my wonderful Korean wife with whom I have a lovely 5 years old little boy. I had very little experience in the Real Estate when I first started but opportunity came up to me and I grabbed it. Now, not only I am enjoying running a successful restaurant but I can provide my clients a full disclosure of what it takes to be a business owner in Costa Rica by sharing my own experience.
Trust me, I would have never thought it would be possible but Costa Rica made it happen and every day of my life I am so blessed I made that decision. If you find yourself in that situation today, ask yourself: Do I really want to live like that for the rest of my life or do I want to take the reins of my own destiny? It is your call but don't miss out on your life. Most likely you will realize that it is much easier than you thought and wish you have done it sooner…
Making a move to new home, especially in another country, is always a challenge but surely conventional wisdom can only result in a conventional life. Isn't it really what you are looking for?
I believe that now is a great timing to invest in Costa Rica, a country that has so much to offer to those who are willing to go past their fear and make that move that will change their life for ever.
So, are you ready to take the plunge? If you are, then we will be here to make it happen for you too! in English, in Spanish or in French :)
