The first sentence describes where we were nearly a year ago.  In fact, we had never been to Costa Rica!  In the process of finding a Real Estate Agent, we found a new friend, as well!  And his friends are now our friends!  Most importantly to your search, Michael intuitively listens to you (your wants, needs, price range, desired view, location, nuances).  He helps guide you through the process, patiently answering your questions and addressing your concerns.  He gives you a “comfort zone” in which to operate and navigate the Costa Rican regulations and laws.

You need a lawyer, got it!  The escrow agent got it.  Car dealer got it.  The property manager got it.  A place to stay or eat got it.  Furniture got it.  The key maker got it.  EVERYWHERE we went with him, people knew him by name and reputation.  His signs are everywhere along the roads and highways.  How could someone this well known be so personable and caring?  Because he is Michael Mills, and that is how he has lived his life!

Michael’s friends are now our friends, and we couldn’t be happier!  We have a beautiful ocean-view home in Costa Rica, surrounded by people who care for our well-being.  Pura Vida!

I recently had the pleasure of meeting and working with Michael Mills of  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 ex-pats and his professional contacts were an enormous help. He was available and communicative throughout 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.
