Michael D. Simons

Costa Rica real estate agent Michael Simons Having lived and traveled all over the United States, from Newport Beach California, to Boca Raton Florida, I felt it was time for a change.  I first came to Costa Rica in 1999 and knew the moment I got here that this is where I would spend the rest of my life.  I only had to sell my business, and off to paradise I went.  I have been very fortunate to have been able to associate myself with some of the best people in the Costa Rica real estate business, and they have all become my very good friends. 

We make a great team.  Please read the bios of all of our associates, and you will see why we became Number One. 

We are committed to helping you obtain your "Little Piece of Paradise"

Alain Mouquet

Costa Rica real estate agent Alain Mouquet Although I was born in the chilly Northern lands of Montreal, Canada, I always had the dream of someday living in a warm tropical climate, full of sunshine, smiling people, and inviting beaches.  After experiencing several Latin countries in my youth, it was the "Rich Coast" that won my heart.  I never left!  I am proud to say that Costa Rica has been my home for the past 25 years.  Both of my wonderful children were born here. 

For much of my career I was in the hotel business.  I worked both as a general manager and in opening luxury hotel venues.  My experience during these years in hospitality has provided me with a fluency in English and Spanish to accompany my native French. 

I love sailing, hanging with friends, traveling and playing tennis. 

I am excited at this juncture of my life to be embarking on a new adventure in the world of hospitality, namely, finding people places to call home, or start a business, or realize their own dream.  I have had the good fortune of teaming with the number one real estate office in Costa Rica, Remax Tres Amigos.  I will continue to live here in beautiful Guanacaste and I welcome the opportunity to share with you my local knowledge and expertise in the real estate markets.

Lisa Farrell

Costa Rica real estate agent Christian Lemouch Hello, my name is Lisa and I am originally from New York City.  After spending 20 years riding the subway day after day from my Brooklyn home to my stressful job in Manhattan, I decided I wanted more out of life.  So in 2004, I took off and never looked back. 

My plan?  I was headed to California, to create a more active lifestyle near the beach.  But first, I took my dive masters course in Costa Rica.  At the end of the course, I was offered a job at the dive shop and, on a whim, I took it.  My work attire went from business suits and uncomfortable high-heels to bikinis, board shorts, and flip-flops.  And my ‘office’ was underwater!  It was a dream come true.  In the nine years since, I have become a licensed member of the Costa Rican Global Association of Realtors, own and operate a successful sport fishing business and was rehired back as a consultant at my NYC job which recently came to a conclusion. 

Landing in Costa Rica has changed my life in ways that were once unimaginable, and I am passionate about using my business and entrepreneurial background to tailor a version of that dream for you.  What better way than to help you find your dream home here, in paradise.  Perhaps you too are looking for a lifestyle with great weather, beautiful nature, good people, and a stress-less life?  No matter what your plan is for fitting Costa Rica into your life, I can make it happen for you.

Yorleny Quesada Mendez - Secretary

Yorleny Quesada Mendez - Secretary I have worked as an assistant with RE/MAX Los Tres Amigos for almost 7 years.  RE/MAX has provided me with a great opportunity to have a better life and do things that I like such as meet more people, learn different customs, and acquire new professional skills. 

I love to visit different places with natural and incredible views and exchange cultures with new and exciting people.  I live in Playas del Coco.  It's a small town in the Guanacaste province, with many places to have something to eat, dance, stores, great mountains, trees and animals.  People are friendly, helpful and ready to offer a friendly hand if you need some help. 

What I love most about my country:  I want everybody, Costa Ricans and tourists, to know about freedom and to enjoy the freedom in Costa Rica. 

Where there is a 'Tico' there is Freedom.

Orrin Brightman

Orrin Brightman Orrin Brightman has over a decade of travel and living experience in the Papagayo area of Costa Rica. He and his wife liked it so much that they eventually purchased property, designed and built a custom villa, and moved here permanently to live the “Pura Vida” lifestyle – as one so beautifully described it, “...the sun, the sand, and a drink in my hand.”

After a successful career in the pharmaceutical industry overseeing large departments and budgets in both domestic and international clinical trial operations, Orrin and his educator wife Betsy decided to move permanently to the Gold Coast of Costa Rica. Their decision was made after many years of researching the social, political, economic and compelling lifestyle aspects of Costa Rica. Orrin has joined the prestigious and highly successful RE/MAX Tres Amigos Costa Rica team in Guanacaste with extensive experience in buying, selling, designing and constructing luxury homes, in both the Northeast sector of the U.S. and in Costa Rica.

He and his wife share their life with their two beloved dogs; Chloe, a miniature schnauzer rescued in their former home city of Philadelphia and Maria, a Costa Rican rescue who grew up on the construction site of the their new home. Taking the dogs to the beach is a favorite pastime as is frequenting the numerous beach restaurants in the area. Their Playa Hermosa villa reflects their interest and appreciation of architecture and unique interior design. Costa Rica affords a plethora of subjects for Orrin's hobby of photography. Perhaps the best activity of all is enjoying the magnificent sunsets with friends while appreciating a glass of fine wine! Each evening offers a new variation of the most beautiful artwork ever created! This is truly paradise!

Orrin wants to share his love of this unique paradise with other likeminded clientele and help them successfully navigate the Costa Rican real estate market. Orrin’s goal is to provide the best professional service to help you own your Costa Rican dream home!

Simon James

Orrin BrightmanWith over a decade of international real estate sales experience, I am extremely well placed to professionally guide you through your purchase or sale. I began my real estate career in Central London (my original home) in 2002 and quickly established myself as a top producing agent. I received my US real estate license in 2009 (the peak of the market crash) and within 2 years was a member of the Realtor Association Roundtable (for high sales volume) and also consistently voted a 5280 Real Estate Professional (voted by clients for quality of service). I have always been firmly in the top 10% for sales of any local market I work in, and provide the same concierge style, high-level of service no matter what the price point. I will work tirelessly until we find you the ideal home, or we sell your property for the maximum the market will support.

For home buyers, I will pay close attention to your requirements, including budget, location, property style and the goal of your purchase. Along with my own long term experience, I happen to work with the top team in the country so have access to decades of local experience. You can truly feel comfortable you will receive first class representation.

For home sellers, I will utilize the very latest in technology to ensure maximum exposure and all listings will receive professional photography and where possible, high quality video to accompany the other marketing efforts. I will advise on where a small investment might pay off in order to achieve a quicker sale and higher sales price, and will ensure you are kept fully in the loop at every stage. My goal is for you to have to do as little as possible to facilitate the sale - I will take care of everything.

I moved here with my wife Anne, a professional photographer, and our daughter Jackie. We truly love living here, and I very much look forward to showing you why we sincerely believe this is a great place to live or visit - as well as invest your hard earned money.
