What do Clients Say?

Having fallen in love with the Dominical Area in Costa Rica in 2010 I decided it was where I would like to invest. Daveed and his team have been with me every step of the way from purchasing the property to the management ensuring that the property is a successful vacation rental. It is a priviledge and an honor to have Daveed on my team! His knowledge of the area along with knowing everything that is available, good and bad, allowed me to get an honest overview of properties prior to the purchase. Daveeds recommendations and suggestions have never led me astray. Knowing and understanding the communities, his honest approach, always having time to answer my questions, are only a few of the attributes he has. There are many more. I look forward to the future and am sure that with Daveeds talents it will be a good one. Thank you my friend.

We came to Costa Rica for the first time in July 2013. We had been thinking about getting a vacation property for our family but had no idea where we wanted to be or what kind of home we wanted. We decided to take a trip to Domincal Costa Rica after doing some limited research - mainly word of mouth. We contacted Daveed on line prior to our trip and he set everything up for us. We only had three days in Costa Rica and Daveed showed us countless homes and areas. He adjusted the list on the fly as our preferences changed hourly depending on what we saw. After the first day we fell in love with the place: not only because of the environment itself, but also because of Daveed's knowledge, enthusiasm and love for the place himself. The people are warm and friendly. The beaches and hills are extraordinary. Daveed is absolutely the best person to see if you are looking at real estate in this area. He is clearly the resident expert and a gracious host. We had the pleasure of meeting his family on our visit and are looking forward to spending time with them also in the future. After three short days, we decided to put an offer on a house. The legal process in Costa Rica can be quite frustrating at times, but Daveed was able to efficiently navigate us through it with the patience of a saint. We now have a beautiful home and we are very excited about spending as much time as possible in this idyllic spot with our new friend and his family.

On our first trip to Costa Rica we met with several agents who showed us a variety of properties, but we didn’t find a “match” – neither for the property, nor for the agent. On our second trip we met with a few different agents, and still didn’t feel totally comfortable – until a local B&B owner referred us to Daveed Hollander. It was immediately clear to us that Daveed possessed an in-depth understanding of the area and the real estate market, along with the insight to listen and help guide us in our selection criteria. He has amazing energy and enthusiasm, and went far more than the “extra mile” to help us find our dream property. We highly recommend Daveed Hollander!

I have been traveling to the Dominical area of Costa Rica for over fourteen years. I was introduced to Daveed through a long time friend and local of the area. I had purchased property in Playa Montapalo several years ago and had many difficulties with the title and closing and I am still having troubles with infrastructure. My experience with Daveed has been completely opposite. Daveed was great right from the beginning, working with my limited budget and helping me negotiate financing. We spent some time up front discussing my long term plans and goals for the property and Daveed was able to secure the perfect lot. Due to my limited budget Daveed had to get creative and put in some extra work to find a property that had everything I was looking for, and he did. I have every intention of working with Daveed through all of my real estate projects moving forward including construction on my newly acquired lot. I highly recommend contacting Daveed if you have any interest in learning more about properties in the southern region of Costa Rica.
