Meet Your Team
Carlos and Sue, Your Experts in Costa Rican Property Sales

We have been business partners, specializing in selling beachfront (Maritime) property in Playa Zancudo since 2008. Carlos is a born Costa Rican, and Sue hails from Texas making our company bilingual.

Having gone through the process of foreign property purchase ourselves, and being heavily involved in our community, we are very knowledgeable about maritime property and can communicate to you the laws and processes for finding your perfect Costa Rican property.

We both currently reside in Playa Zancudo and service many areas of Southern Costa Rica up to Tamarindo in the North.

With many connections both local and expat, we are your best choice if you want to either purchase or sell! We are here to help you find what you've been looking for but didn't even know existed.

Sue Johnson, Playa Zancudo Real Estate Agent
Sue Johnson

27 years combined experience selling real estate in Houston, TX and Costa Rica.

After 15 years of searching the Caribbean for our dream home, it wasn't until my husband came home and announced "let's go fishing in Costa Rica" that we were fortunate enough to find our paradise in Playa Zancudo where I work and live today. That was over 23 years ago and and I have some great stories! Maybe one day I will meet you and fill you in!

Our Other Businesses
Please Come and Enjoy our Bar/Restaurant and Cabin Rentals

In 2005, Carlos purchased his restaurant / bar El Coquito in Playa Zancudo. It's a fun thriving business frequented by both expats and local Ticos. Come visit us while you're shopping for your beachfront or jungle property and enjoy some fantastic nachos, a game of darts, or even disco night!

El Coquito also has bright simple cabins for rent if you'd like a place to stay in town on a popular locals' beach.


Sue has 2 air-conditioned wooden cabins on her Latitude 8 beachfront property. Come enjoy the lovely secluded beach where green parrots and howler monkeys wake you up in the morning, and you can even have a dip in the freshing pool!
