A few years back, I met Tom and Jan Yatsko at our local feria (farmers’ market), when I spotted their stand of homemade baked goods. As a family, we are suckers for good quality baked goods, so we were more than eager to try a sampling of amazing products that we had been unable to find in our little town of Atenas.

Traditionally speaking, real estate has been one of the most stable long term investments an individual could make. In recent years, the global real estate “boom” changed the dynamics and weakened the foundations of these investments, especially in the United States, England, France, and Spain.
Located off the Pan American Highway, Grecia is known as the "cleanest town in Central America". It is a charming farming town with rolling hills dotted with coffee and sugarcane plantations, beautiful mountain vistas, lush green landscapes, and crisp flowing mountain rivers and streams. A beautiful red metal, gothic style church that was shipped to Costa Rica from Belgium in the late 1800's highlights the center of town, making Grecia unmistakable.
In the world of real estate, as in the world at large, knowing what you want is vital for a successful real estate transaction. As a buyer in an exotic land, that importance is ten fold. Being focused and organized with clear ideas of what your "dream property" would look like should be your goal.
