West Side San Jose real estate agent Ivo Henfling

Real Estate Specialist - West-side of San Jose real estate, covering Escazú and Santa Ana, Rohrmoser and Ciudad Colón

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
