Client Reviews

Writing from Australia, on the other side of the world to Costa Rica, I have quickly gained enormous respect for Yalile and Andrea, whom are definitely leaders in their field, and I would have no hesitation in recommending them to my friends and colleagues, and anyone else that is looking to do business with them.

Yalile is the ultimate subject matter expert for real estate throughout Costa Rica. She defines professionalism, working with the world's most private and discerning clients and her unrivaled knowledge of the Country's history and trajectory keep her in high demand.

When it comes to such qualities as honesty, integrity, transparency, professionalism, excellence and expert knowledge of the real estate market in Costa Rica there is one realtor along with her company stand out far ahead of all others; that person is Yalile Alpizar and her company Costa Rica Luxury. There will be no regrets in meeting Costa Rica's finest and most knowledgable realtor.  've dealt with Realtors throughout North, South and Central America for a few decades now and there has been only but one Realtor whose knowledge of the market, honesty, and professionalism has been second to none, one whom I'd highly recommend and that is Costa Rica Luxury's founder Yalile Alpizar. Her service really does go more than that extra mile!

My husband and I listed two properties with Yalile Alpizar between 2011 and 2013. An upscale 320m2 condo in the heart of Escazu and a 450m2 house on 7 hectares in Uvita de Osa. The condo was not an exclusive, we had 9 or so relators we were working with. However, Yalile was the only one who consistently brought qualified buyers. When we had our first offer, it was low. Yalile recommended not accepting it. As the condo had been for sale for almost 6 months and the economy was down and the market was glutted, it was a hard choice. Within 10 days, she had a new offer at 90% of our asking price. The deal closed 2 months later. We were thrilled. This sale gave us the confidence to list our finca in Osa with her as an exclusive. Within 8 months of the listing we had a qualified buyer. The buyer was the first person to see the property. Initially, the buyer offered a low price which she coached us into not accepting. We closed - again - at 90% of our asking price. Both transactions were handled with ease and grace. Yalile is trustworthy, hardworking, fair and honest. These aren't always easy characteristics to find. If you are looking for a broker to sell your home, go no further. She will get the job done for you. She won't accept properties she can't sell and you can count on her to be there at the crucial moments.

I have known Yalile Alpízar for over 20 years. She is the consummate professional with high ethical standards and always willing to go above and beyond for her clients. She has personally sold property for me as my broker in Costa Rica and is currently involved with my two other Costa Rican properties. I would highly recommend her to anyone.

I have worked with literally 1,000's of real estate brokers in various parts of the World involving my business as a real estate developer over the past 41 years. Yalile, and her team has consistently provided the highest level of professional services possible. She is honest, trustworthy, and will not advise clients on properties based on what is her best interest - it is always in the best interest of her clients. I highly recommend her to anyone in need of professional, high quality real estate services in Costa Rica.

Yalile became the first Prestige MLS member in Costa Rica and I really enjoyed working with her. She is very professional, proactive and reliable. I highly recommend her as business partner.

Andrea is a person who understands the needs of customers and looks for the option that best suits the profile of their clients. She is very committed to her work and always seeks a balance between the needs of the buyer and the seller. Andrea is known for providing excellent service and is available 24/7 to answer any questions her clients may have.

From beginning to end, Costa Rica Luxury provided the kind of advice that one dreams of when dealing with real estate. At the start of the process, they recommended a full package for introducing the home and property. It was a wise move. At the end of the process, they kept us advised as to the legal status. It was reassuring when one is most uncertain. They proved to know of how it should be done.

- Dean A.J.


Our experience with Andrea Guillen of Costa Rica Luxury with the sale of a property was excellent, thanks to professionalism, seriousness and her pleasant personality provide an environment of great confidence. Its client portfolio was always very serious and suitable for the characteristics of the property. We would definitely deal with her and Costa Rica Luxury.

- Fam. Magnin


My husband and I are totally satisfied with the service provided by Costa Rica Luxury. We have been fortunate to work with Andrea who with her experience and professionalism guided us through the process of buying the Property. The truth is that She exceeded expectations because she not only advised us, but also made sure that as foreigners we had all the necessary information about what the acquisition of a property entails, but also the culture and beauty of the Country. We can say that the experience with Costa Rica Luxury has been highly positive and we recommend those who are thinking of investing in Costa Rica not to hesitate to contact them. "Andrea, thank you very much for your time, patience and professionalism. You certainly made a difference in this process.

- Paola & Pablo


Andrea helped me find a rental home on short notice and was wonderful to work with. The process wasn't an easy one and there were several bumps along the way, but Andrea stuck with me the entire time guiding me through every twist and turn. I probably wasn't the easiest client, yet Andrea kept coming back with new ideas and properties to show me day after day until we finally found the place I now call home. I can't recommend her highly enough.
