About Michael Mills Testimonials


I am a Canadian  originally from Ontario, transplanted to Shawnigan Lake, on Vancouver Island, BC. and have been living here in the Playa Hermosa, Playa Coco area for over 19 years. After 25 years of marketing and sales experience operating my own brokerage printing companies I decided to relocate to Costa Rica after my third trip in 1998.  Over the years in Costa Rica I have captained my own catamaran "Spanish Dancer" offering sailing charters, I have sold and helped established restaurants for friends. I

 My wife Josta, who is from the Netherlands, speaks six languages and has  completed writing her Costa Rica real estate courses for her license. We are both Costa Rica full time residents and reside just outside of Playas Del Coco on a 5 acre ranch.

In 1999 I took the real estate training courses through The Costa Rican Chamber of Real Estate Brokers (CCCBR) and have also taken all the courses and I am a member of Costa Rica Global Association of REALTORS® .  I now manage Remax Prestige Ocean Properties offices as an associate broker in our two offices in  the Hacienda Del Mar Development Project in Playa Panama, Guanacaste and the Lomas Del Mar Development at Matapalo Beach.

This is my home and I take great pride knowing the area inside out and being able to advise new comers on everything they need to know to purchase and settle in here. In 19 years I have established a network of professionals from lawyers, accountants, bankers to builders, shipping companies, home inspection companies and surveyors  who can assist in the transition of moving or investing in Costa Rica.  

   If you are looking for a income generating vacation condo or home,  a  2 acre ranch or even a beach front hotel property, you have come to the right person. Stability, honesty, integrity, knowledgeable and available 24 - 7.

June 2018

I recently had the pleasure of meeting and working with Michael Mills of RE/MAX Prestige Ocean Properties. 

My plan was to “just look”.  However, Michael was so intuitive to what I was looking for…I bought the first property he showed me!  All others just didn’t fit the bill. Michael’s knowledge of the home buying process for expats and his professional contacts were an enormous help. He was available and communicative through the entire process. Not only did I buy a dream home, I made a lifelong friend at the same time.

I would highly recommend Michael Mills.

“We highly recommend Michael and his team! Purchasing a property in another country requires a level of expertise that Michael demonstrated over and over again on our behalf. He has the local knowledge and the connections to facilitate professional advice through the whole transaction. We were thrilled. Many thanks Michael!

To Whom It May Concern:


Michael Mills assisted us in purchasing a beautiful lot in Costa Rica. He was extraordinarily prompt and responsive throughout the entire process. He devoted an entire weekend to us to show us around and select the best lot for our vacation home.  During our weekend with Michael, he demonstrated a vast network of contacts that were equally responsive, informative and helpful. We felt that Michael’s expertise and network were outstanding and truly enjoyed our extremely  productive weekend with him.  Michael’s knowledge of the real estate environment  is exemplary, and we highly recommend him for any real estate needs.

Dear Mike,

Mayra and I would like to express our sincere appreciation for your assistance

with our recent property purchase in Playa Hermosa. In the first meeting with

you, we shared our primary and secondary objectives for the visit to Playa

Hermosa. While we spent most of our time trying to meet the primary objective,

you never forgot about the secondary. As it turned out, the purchase we made

met our second objective.

Your combination of genuine friendship and professional guidance provided us

with the knowledge and confidence that made it possible for us to complete our

transaction after we returned to the United States. In a very short time frame, you

arranged for legal representation, a home inspection and property management

services. You even performed a video inventory of the items that were included

in the purchase agreement.

You are welcome and encouraged to share this letter with anyone who is

contemplating a real estate purchase in Costa Rica.

Best Regards to you and Josta,

Mayra and Clay Boler
