Upon arriving into Belize from the U.K., we met Macarena Rose, as we were all staying at the same hotel. Being that she had just moved here to Belize, as we had, and during the same week, we found a connection that resonated.
”In March 2008, we took our first trip to Belize, in particular to look at San Ignacio and area. We had entertained the idea of looking at some property while there, for a future retirement home in a green and much warmer climate. Our first night there, we came upon a house listed for sale and we fell in love with it under the street light. The listing realtor we talked with had nothing in his files except the house number, and was unable to answer any further questions we had about the property and appeared somewhat reluctant to assist us.
We had been introduced to Macarena Rose while out for lunch. She had told us "If you ever have any questions about real estate in Belize, just drop by Rainforest Realty." We did, and within 15 minutes she had all the answers we were seeking. We also met Cynthia and Hector at the office, and were impressed of how welcoming they were to us.
We had a very good, no… I mean a GREAT feeling, about the people at Rainforest and asked them to present an offer to the home owner on our behalf.
As our time there was limited, they put the wheels into motion and in two days we had a signed agreement of purchase.
In November 2008, Rainforest Realty won a prestigious award for being the Best Realty Firm in Belize from the New York Times and CNBC, we had figured that out in March 2008 they were the best!
Since we have returned to Canada, and have referred 3 people going to San Ignacio with the interest in looking at property to go to Rainforest Realty, first. One of them has his house up for sale here and will be a neighbor of mine in San Ignacio, thanks to Rainforest Realty.
