Ginny Ophof, Belize Realtor

I have lived in Belize since 2008, but have been coming to this amazing little country since 1998 as my Mother has been living here for about 30 years.

English, Dutch, French and Portuguese are the languages I speak.

Having lived in quite a few countries worldwide for many years I am very content and comfortable in Belize…... Life and the people are real here and the weather is great.

As a mother of 2 boys and 3 grandsons living in the USA and Europe, I do travel frequently to spend time with them but always have happy landings when back in Belize.

Because I love this country, its people and life here so much, I am honored to guide you through the process of relocating to Belize by making it as smooth, fun and exciting for you.

I have been in the Real Estate business since 2012 and as I like to say: “showing properties and listing properties in Belize is always an adventure and fun.”

Prior to joining the international real estate industry with Team Rainforest Realty, I held several positions relating to International Travel and Tourism.

Being a firm believer in Giving Back, working with Team Rainforest Realty, is the perfect fit for me as the company has many charitable programs and Events - KWBelize CARES!

In my free time I like to read, watch movies and hang out with friends over a meal as I am a big foodie and love to cook!
