About Us

Palms International Costa Rica was founded through a strategic partnership between Palms International, an international resort real estate sales and marketing company and Resort Realty CR, a successful boutique real estate company serving Costa Rica and Los Sueños Resort since 2003.  In 2012, Palms International combined its extensive international real estate marketing expertise with Resort Realty’s experienced local Costa Rica sales team to established Palms International Costa Rica, now the fastest growing real estate company in Costa Rica.

The unique combination of an international sales and marketing company with over $220M in sales throughout U.S., Caribbean, Latin and Central America joining forces with a local Costa Rica based luxury real estate company gives Palms’ clients, both Buyers and Sellers, unparalleled world-class representation.

Palms International Costa Rica currently has offices at Los Sueños/Herredarra and Guanacaste with strategic Broker partners throughout Costa Rica, the U.S. and internationally, as well as an in-house marketing team to provide our clients with the best possible service for buying and selling real estate in Costa Rica.
