All GoDutch real estate agents are well trained and WILL do due diligence, unlike most real estate offices in Costa Rica do, before we even list a home, land or condo in Costa Rica, to make sure you will be buying property in Costa Rica with a clear title. We make sure we get to know the Costa Rica property as well as we can, so we can give you, the buyer, all the necessary expertise.

Also, we always recommend the use of a home inspector before you purchase. We prefer you know about the problems a property might have so you’ll have an easy move into your new home, condo or villa. Properties in Costa Rica are sold “as is” so a home inspection will give you a list of what needs to be fixed, so you can get that done before moving into your townhome or condo in Costa Rica. A Godutch realtor will protect YOUR interests, so when you move to Costa Rica and want to live the Ultimate Costa Rica real estate experience, make sure you contact us. All GoDutch real estate agents have good ethics and rules to live by even though real estate licensing in Costa Rica is not mandatory but eventually the Costa Rica MLS will straighten that out as they will start soon the Continued Education for Realtors. It is easy to find out who we are, just check the testimonials on our website and see what our clients have to say about us.

Moving to a country where you don’t speak the language is always stressful. The one thing that drastically reduced that stress was working with Ivo from GoDutch Realty Costa Rica. Ivo was with us every step of the way, not only with all the complicated red tape involved with the purchase, but how to navigate all the complications which we had never even considered. He was available to answer all our questions and point us in the right direction, even helping us get Costa Rican phones, find a lawyer to help with the legal requirements of purchasing land and applying for residency. It can be quite intimidating when your grasp of the language and customs is infinitesimal, but we always knew that Ivo could answer all our questions or point us to someone who could help us. We have our new home and are settled in, but will always consider Ivo a friend. Even now we know that he will answer any questions which pop up because he and the other GoDutch Realty employees are just that kind of people. The best decision we ever made was moving to Costa Rica, the second best would be working with GoDutch.

GoDutch Realty was able to sell our house in Escazu despite being in a very difficult market. We were able to close while out of the country thanks to our attorney’s and our agent’s efforts. Highly recommended.

Godutch Realty has been there for us over the last 11years, We purchased a home for our residence and two investment properties that were also sold through Godutch. We are very pleased with Ivo and his staff of realtors, who were a part of all our transactions, that included rentals. Ivo also keeps us updated with his blog giving essential info about local laws and taxes which are necessary to know for foreign owners of real estate. THANK YOU IVO

We bought a house through Go Dutch in 2008. Ivo helped us with the compete process and really looked out for our interests. After we moved, he has since been available to help us with many of the ever-changing Costa Rican official government hoops (requirements). We highly recommend his services.
