About DR Properties

Who we are and how we help you.


We’re glad you’re here.

And you’re in the right place!  DR Properties is way more than just a real estate company.  We are a group of very experienced realtors and mortgage brokers who have been helping foreign buyers find their own version of  Caribbean life for over 16-years.

We are dedicated and full service.  Our clients tend to  become good friends, first with us, then with each other.

We will help you find property that best suits your lifestyle, financial situation and short/long term needs and ultimately see if the DR is the place for you.

Most people have no idea where to even start.  How does it all work? What are the legal ins and outs? Will my title be owned by me and secure? How stable is the government? How much are taxes?  Is it safe?


Experience and reputation count.  Put our 16-years of both to work for you.
