Born and raised in Western Australia, Joel’s life changed the first time he visited Costa Rica over 13 years ago.
Falling in love with both the natural beauty of Costa Rica and his Costa Rican wife to be, Michelle, “I knew straight away that I wanted to be here in Costa Rica living this incredible life that it offered”.
After some time back in Australia working in offshore construction, the inevitable decision was made to transplant the growing family back to Costa Rica.
Since then joel has expanded his family with 2 beautiful “jungle kids” Indi and Soli Martino.
After living all along the pacific costa of Costa Rica, Joel and his family settled in the Tamarindo region of Guanacaste.
“the incredible mix of both great schooling for my young children and business opportunity available made the Tamarindo move a easy and natural choice, we have arrived to where we have been looking for”
Joel is now focusing his energy into the Tamarindo area and more specifically the iconic development of Hacienda Pinilla.
From project management of luxury new builds, management of high end vacation rentals and the selling of homes within the 4500 acres of Hacienda Pinilla, Joel has a fantastic insight having learning the Hacienda Pinilla market inside and out.
Joel as a bi lingual english and Spanish speaker is a great asset with a fresh insight into the current real estate market and investment opportunities available here in Guanacaste.
Having lived the experience of bringing his family back to Costa Rica, Joel can help you with your needs from investment to a family perspective.
