Rainforest Realty Testimonial
Lee Bothamley and Mike McKegney
Often when we traveled in the Caribbean and Central America, we would dream of living somewhere warm when we retire to escape the cold Canadian winters. We asked each other how we would know where the right place was and we decided we would know it when we found it. After being in Belize for 4 days on our first trip there in May of 2008, we both looked at each other and said “I could live here”. We loved the relaxed way of life and the friendliness of the Belizean people and the ex-pats who live in Cayo. On our return home, we started looking at Belize real estate online and found Rainforest Realty. Our first time out to look at houses was with Hector Mar. From the beginning, we found Hector to be very friendly and personable, as well as professional and efficient. We looked at about 25 houses over the next 2 years and several trips, before finding the one we fell in love with in Cristo Rey. Buying a house from a distance seemed very frightening, but Hector walked us through the whole process and kept in touch frequently through e-mail. He answered our many, many questions always with patience, and kept us informed at every step. Hector was also helpful with other day to day issues of life in Belize – getting our electricity hooked up, insurance, paying our tax bill, where to shop for certain items, etc. We would highly recommend Hector for any of your real estate needs. He has always been honest with us and efficient in everything that he does. On our “as frequent as possible” visits to Belize, we always visit with Hector (and his lovely wife Kelly) and he has remained a special friend.
