This is our team of real estate professionals who work for Peninsula Realty in Santa Teresa:
After growing up in Connecticut, I graduated from Wesleyan University and New York University School of Law. I have a background in finance and extensive real estate investment experience in Costa Rica and the United States. I am a licensed Realtor in Nevada and am a Certified Resort and Second Home Real Estate Specialist.
My wife, Lisa, our 2 children and I adore living between the jungle, beach and city. We also own a hotel and horse ranch, Star Mountain Jungle Lodge.
My commitment is to my clients and carefully advising them in the pursuit of their dreams.
My daughter and I arrived in 1999 from Victoria, Canada, and fell in love with Santa Teresa’s unique 7 miles of white sand beach and surf! We’ve never looked back and I now have: my permanent residency, a sweet home and grandchildren born here!
Growing old has really been a process of staying young. Now, I get to offer you the opportunity to fulfill your dreams and enjoy the nature and Pura Vida of the Blue Zone.
Juan Jorge Araya
I was born and raised in Palmares, a town in the Central Valley of Costa Rica. I earned my Bachelor’s Degree in Tourism and Hospitality and have been working in tourism since 2008. I am proud to be the founder of Costa Rica Outdoors & Waves.
My hospitality experience has taught me to listen intently to a client as I seek to match their needs and wants to particular properties. My fulfillment comes from seeing that ideal match between client and property.
I was raised in Houston and recently graduated from the University of Texas at Austin, so I have always been a Texas girl at heart. That quickly changed after visiting Santa Teresa for the first time; I couldn’t stay away. This small little beach town is a dream I couldn’t have ever imagined. I moved to Santa Teresa full-time and have not turned back. I pride myself on communication, dedication, and transparency.
When I am not helping clients, I am relaxing on the beach with my Labrador, Mister, or exploring the beautiful balance of jungle and beach that Costa Rica has to offer.
