“We are so pleased with our choice to buy in the DR, and we are spending more and more time there. We’ve made lifelong friends, love our casa and our pool, believe our quality of life has much improved. Golfing every week in January – can’t beat it!”
Ken and Glenna • Toronto, Canada
“We so appreciate everything Colleen and Mel have done to make our buying experience truly amazing. Their help was and is invaluable and gave us more confidence in the whole ‘out of country’ purchasing of real estate. They came alongside us with support, advice and genuine interest in our plans and ideas. My husband first met with Colleen in Calgary at a Trade Show and communicated with her for almost two years before we actually made the trip to the DR. Colleen and Mel addressed our concerns and fears, we met other Canadian owners and now we both are enthusiastic, owners of a beautiful property in the DR.”

“We were going to winter in our coach motorhome, but found our gas bill in Arizona to be over $400/month! When we head south we want to be warm! The DR has it all – great weather, reasonable prices, large community, and a wondersful lifestyle! We are thrilled and are heading back earlier this winter…”
