Real estate testimonials

Marian listens, carefully

hola Ivo

I am writing to express our great appreciation for Marian Veltman, both professionally and personally. My wife and I recently completed the purchase transaction of a house in which we enjoyed the guidance and resources that Marian provided.

I have been a realtor in the states and am quite opinionated on what a realtor’s role is in a transaction.

The realtor’s role

Marian is everything that I could have asked for in a realtor:

  • First and foremost, she listens; carefully,
  • Pays attention to her clients’ expressions and thoughts and picks up on their nuances,
  • Utilizes that to present appropriate options in the clients’ interest,
  • Does not push what is in her interest,
  • Is open to the clients’ ideas,
  • Discreet and keeps her opinions to herself unless asked for them,
  • Understands her role and responsibility to the client to bring all the relevant players and issues together to make a successful conclusion for all,
  • Performs that role excellently,
  • Knowledgeable about virtually all aspects of the real estate business here in CR,
  • Has professional, competent specialists and resources to bring into a transaction for your benefit as needed,
  • She is a good soul,
  • Warm and friendly and quick to extend herself to help someone out,
  • Takes her time to help her clients get situated and acclimated to their new lives, addressing needs of theirs that don’t really bear on real estate but are part of everyday life.

If someone is looking for a real estate agent in the Atenas area, they can do no better than Marian.

best regards.

The meaning of service

You guys are so nice. I was looking for a pathway to live in Costa Rica. I was looking at renting or buying a very small piece of land and building a tiny house. but I’m a starving artist and just getting my business growing so I would have needed to work and don’t want to be illegal. So I guess I’m looking somewhere else.

You guys really know how to sell and how to be professional, people in this country have forgotten the meaning of service you guys are great. I’ll be in touch. Thanks again.

Very professional

Hi Marian

My wife Maria and I like to say thanks for the sale of our house in Atenas B. Los Angeles. The sale was done very professionally. The very friendliness of Marian and the help to the Buyer to guide them in all their legal work. Marian, it was well done.

An above and beyond effort!

Dear Ivo,

We wanted to drop you a note to let you know that we got moved into our new house in Atenas.  We are very happy with our decision to move to Costa Rica from the Washington, DC area.  Our house is beautiful and the people of Costa Rica have been great!

We would also like you to know that we are very happy with our realtor, Rudy Mathews.  Rudy was so helpful in the whole process of finding our house and helping us get settled.  He definitely went above and beyond!

Rudy has a great appreciation for the experience you go through when you buy a house in a new country. He was able to guide us through the twists-and-turns of moving to Costa Rica. He is not only a great realtor but he has also become one of our friends.


We have to say the same for Marian. She has been so helpful to us after we got moved in.  Marian has helped us find our way around Atenas and even helped us get all of our utilities hooked up. Again, an above and beyond effort!

I have to give both Rudy and Marian high marks for their professionalism and eagerness to help their clients. It would be great if all businesses were able to provide this level of service.

Congratulations on having such an excellent company and having such great professionals working for you.

Thanks for everything. We hope you stop by to see us next time you are in Atenas.

All the best!

Could you unpack for us?!?!

Isa, thank you for everything you have done for us!  You have been awesome! We were incredibly lucky that you wanted to rent our house.  I look forward to buying you a glass of wine…maybe two or three…

As a last favor, could you unpack for us?!?!

Will have you over for a cold beer

Hey, Ivo, just wanted to say thank you again for making the home purchase so easy and as well for hooking us up with Drew he is a great guy. We got the house finished and the girls moved over and the place looks so good you won’t recognize it. I’ll be back at the end of May and we will have you over for a cold beer. Take care talk soon

It was just perfect

Dear Miguel,

Tom and I have truly enjoyed this last week at your beautiful home. It was just perfect! We absolutely love the view and used the pool & jacuzzi every day. Your well-appointed kitchen & laundry facilities were such a wonderful aspect of renting this particular home—-we prefer to “cook in” rather than eat out all the time, and really appreciate the opportunity to wash clothes too since we pack light!

Now, to the most important part—–you have recruited such an incredible team to keep this home so warm and inviting! Marvin & Andrea keep the grounds so impeccably spotless and lush. In addition to your security system & gate, Marvin provides an added measure of security, as you well know—-he is aware of the gate opening and closing every time and is vigilant about caring for your property while staying completely unobtrusive.

Property managers

How lucky you are to have Aad & Marian there to manage!! They are the nicest, most accommodating professionals you could have found —they were so responsive to our every need! When the dishwasher was inoperative, they were there the very next day. They were so helpful in providing information about the area, and all the services they offer—transportation, tours are such a tremendous compliment to enjoying a stay at your home! I will definitely place a review on VRBO to that effect, and am happy to write a testimonial if you ever need one for advertising purposes!

We would also like to thank you for putting us in touch with Rudy Matthews! He was incredibly helpful in helping us get to know the area in order to make an informed decision. As you know, he is patient and helpful—-not a high-pressure kind of real estate agent! In all our choices, we prefer a professional who takes a consultative approach so Rudy was just perfect. We plan to stay in touch with him—we have made an offer on a home here in Atenas, but if this doesn’t come to fruition, we will work with Rudy to find our home-away-from-home. Thank you so much for connecting us—-he’s the perfect fit for our style!

Thank you for sharing this wonderful little piece of paradise with us, as well as your all your professional connections that made our stay so relaxing!
