Ivo Henfling

Ivo Henfling

Agent City: Escazu 
Neighborhood: Escazu and Santa Ana

Cell Phone: (506) 8834-4515 (dial 011 first from the US) 

About this Agent: If you are looking to buy a home in Costa Rica or invest in a condo anywhere in the central Valley, or looking for any property for sale in Escazu, you need to call me. I have been selling real estate in Escazu for over 20 years and can show you hundreds of happy buyers of real estate in Escazu and other areas. To me, a deal is not a good deal unless both buyer and seller are happy.

I was born in Holland (so I’m Dutch) and I came to Costa Rica in 1980 looking for new horizons. I have had many businesses over the years and have found out first hand how difficult it is to learn to adapt to a new country with a different language and a different culture. Of course in the 80’s almost no one spoke any English and even less Dutch, so I had to learn the language as soon and as best as I could. Over the years, I have had several businesses: a window cleaning company, fishing boats, a supply delivery company for beach hotels and a spice wholesale company.

After living a few years in this beautiful country, the real estate deals began coming up. Countrymen and friends of all kinds of nationalities, who were transferred or wanted to leave the country, asked me to take care of their properties or help him sell them. In 1997, I decided to sell and shut down all my companies and started working full time in Escazu real estate and founded GoDutch Realty in the same year. Now, with several offices nationwide, GoDutch realty is one of the largest real estate companies in Costa Rica.

This success is based on watching out for our customers, and making sure that all our agents are well trained and offer you the best service available, seriousness and punctuality that all clients deserve. In 1999 I felt that, since we had no MLS here, there was a definite need for real estate agents to work together, so with two other realtor we founded the American European Real estate Group (AE Costa Rica – Easy Properties), which was one of the very first mini MLS services in Costa Rica where you can find properties offered by over 50 real estate agents in Costa Rica, all well trained and living up to the high standards set by the group.

I am fluent in English, Spanish and Dutch. So give me a call or send me an email if you are looking for a trustworthy real estate agent who is a go-getter and enjoys good people, a serious buyer and finding you the right property. Ivo Henfling Telephone (506) 2289-5125 Cell phone 8834-4515

Aad Marian

Agent City: Atenas
Neighborhood: Atenas

Cell Phone: (506) 8997-4192 (dial 011 first from the US)

About this Agent: About this Agent: Marian Veltman lived almost all of her life in The Netherlands in a town close to Amsterdam. Marian was born in Suriname (former Dutch colony) and moved to Holland at the age of 12. In Holland, Marian was working at The Netherlands Cancer Institute. Husband Aad was a Police Inspector for almost 30 years.

Like most people in The Netherlands we speak English, Dutch, German and now also Spanish. We always wanted to live somewhere in the tropics but didn’t know where. In February 2007 we came to Costa Rica for a vacation. We immediately loved the country, the climate and the people. After vacationing for two weeks in Costa Rica, we bought our home in Atenas.

We still are in awe of the Atenas area, the perfect climate, its central location and the lovely town and its surroundings. We went back to Holland to finish our jobs and prepare everything for our move to Costa Rica. On Jan 1st 2008, we realized our dream and moved to Costa Rica permanently. At first we spent our time in painting our house and gardening. After a short while, we began managing one property on our street, which lead to quite a few more. These properties are all situated in the Atenas area.

In addition to property management she also organizes tours throughout Costa Rica for family and friends, under the name Bunki Tours. Marian also makes beautiful glass bead jewelry. We love to work with people and will be happy to help you find the right property for your personal needs - hope to see you in the future.

After high school, she started working in different areas of customer service. In 2005 she traveled to USA and lived in Florida where she worked for six years for Medicaid, alternating with 2 other part time jobs. For Atenas real estate call Marian on her cell phone (506) 8997-4192
