Gary Hammond

Gary lived in Alaska and commercial fished in the Bering Sea, Gulf of Alaska, Cook Inlet & Bristol Bay for over 20 years fishing for everything from salmon, halibut, black cod, shrimp and all species of Alaska crab. His most recent fishing adventure was the 2021 Bering Sea Snow crab season. Gary moved to Costa Rica in 2006 and worked for “Coldwell Banker Coast to Coast Properties” until 2010 when he was offered a rotational job (3 weeks on, 3 weeks off) in Alaska’s Prudhoe Bay oilfield. He has given up the oilfield to be home fulltime with his Latina wife and 2 young children. He is fluent in both English and Spanish and has integrated into the local community. As a member of the local “Lion’s Club”, he was involved in many activities to better Playas del Coco. He owns 2 boats in town and offers fishing, snorkeling and sightseeing tours in addition to his role as a realtor.

I had the pleasure of working with Dylan to find my perfect property in Costa Rica. Dylan is very detail-oriented and found exactly what I wanted. He has many great contacts from attorneys, craftsmen to the best places to eat! What a great family! Friends for life! P.S. Thanks for the surfing lessons.

I have some sense of how busy Scott Bowers is but we always felt we had your full attention whenever we needed it and Scott Bowers never rushed us. Making such a large decision from Canada had the potential to go sideways in countless ways. Scott Bowers always kept us on track and found answers to our many questions. Scott Bowers helped us bridge the language issues, especially the definition of “furnished”! Cheers and pura vida

Moving to a new country can never be easy but after meeting Dylan, I found my perfect home. I have a long relationship with Coldwell Banker and so when I decided I wanted to purchase a home in Costa Rica I contacted my local Coldwell Banker agent and she introduced me to Dylan. Dylan is a great agent, he took the time to educate me about the area I was interested in and provided me with the information I needed to purchase my new home. Even after purchase he provided me with assistance on making my hew house my new home. I highly recommend Dylan as an agent here in Costa Rica. He is knowledgeable about all the issues of purchasing a home in Costa Rica and is able to share his knowledge with you so that you can make an informed decision. He is personable, attentive and highly respected by other agents in the area. I highly recommend Dylan and I know you will be well pleased with using him as your agent here in Costa Rica. Pura Vida!

Daveed Hollander served as my real estate broker and helped me successfully sell three luxury properties over the past several years. His knowledge of the marketplace and experience in the area, professionalism, and responsiveness back by a great team were all outstanding. If you are looking to sell or buy, I would strongly recommend Daveed and his Coldwell Banker team.

Scott Bowers helped us to purchase our house in Costa Rica. Scott was very responsive and specific, always answering the phone, or returning phone calls right away. He is a very nice person to work with and he was very professional and amiable when showing us the properties while we were in the country. He helped us to negotiate the deal on the property we have selected and also introduced us to a local RE attorney and assisted us in preparing documents needed to finalize the transaction while we were back in the USA. He provided help with things substantially above and beyond his responsibilities as a RE agent, such as setting up a bank account in CR. His book, “The Definitive Guide to Costa Rica Expat Living”, is a must read for anybody thinking about RE in Costa Rica. I strongly recommend him.
