Dear Dar, I know this is late coming, but it has been a difficult year since Barry passed away last February. This letter is to thank you for everything you did for me during that time. I am not sure where I would be right now if it hadn't been for you looking out for my best interest in respect to selling our property in Playa Zancudo. With my husband passing and having to deal with that emotion, I also knew I would need to go back to the United States where my kids and grandchild live. However, I still had a home and property in Playa Zancudo that I needed to sell due to my current circumstances.


Hello!! It is so nice to hear from a fellow zancudo property owner!! Chuck is my fiance and we both bought the property.

I will tell you exactly about our experiences with Dar.

Never have I ever met any business man with such personal caring as Dar. We came out to Zancudo knowing NOBODY. Very skeptical of all people and our surroundings, we met Dar. I felt instantly comfortable, but I knew that somebody that wanted our business would obviously try to be nice. We decided to work with him, and realized through time that it was one of the best decisions we have ever made. We were not familiar with the swing of things in Costa Rica... especially when it came to buying property. After we worked with him and bought a home, he got his commission.


Hi Deb,
We purchased "Bernie's old place" which is located several lots north of Zancudo Lodge, and a house across the road on the riverfront from Dar in May of 2008.

We did extensive renovations on the beachfront house last year – both outside and inside – purchase of furnishings and furniture, extensive work on the yard this spring; and renovations on the riverfront house last year.

Dar has been EXTREMELY helpful to us during the purchase, as construction supervisor, as property manager and as a friend.

Without his help, we would not be able to own property in Zancudo.

He is always trying to recruit renters and watching out for the property – looking out for mold & mildew both inside and outside, insects, electric and other utility bills, security, etc. And he knows the local residents and arranges any work that needs to be done on the property.

He put together a boat deal for us by purchasing the boat and engines from separate sources and was able to save us thousands of dollars on the deal. He also helped negotiate a deal with Antonio, our next door neighbor, to be the captain of the boat at a very reasonable price.
