Complete Project Management Sevices (New construction readiness, renovations - existing properties, etc.)
Concerned about buying New Construction? No worries with Reliable Realty. About 40% of our sales are with New Construction, whether it be a single family House (villa) or a Condo (apartment/ flat). Our Agency only works with proven Developers who used quality construction materials and follow the required building codes set by the government. Many New Construction properties also qualify for the one time 3% transfer title tax, and are also guaranteed 15 years of property tax exemption! With our team of exceptional Legal Attorney's (who also speak English), 100% of the New Construction properties we have sold have completed (Yes... sometimes later than desired... common anywhere in the world); and have all acheived title in the buyers (owners) names.
...BUT I WON'T BE THERE to see the progress myself, or customize it, or paint with my favorite colors, or get my utility accounts set up and established, or even furnish, buy appliances or electronics, or even decorate it... WHAT DO I DO?
Very simple... You contact Reliable Realty SRL! We are your "feet, ears, eyes, mouth, and hands on the ground here". We take care of all these concerns on your behalf, all aspects you can think about. Even buying your dishes, linens, and silverware. We then take it one step further should you too decide to leverage as an income property when you're not using it, or if you simply need monthly Property Management Services, for a small monthly fee, to make sure it stays clean, maintained, aired out. and safe from torrential storms or theft (although neither are common here at all).

Reliable and popular budget Listings
You can trust our listings to be legitimate and reliable because we are selective in the listings we represent. Unlike other agencies who "borrow" listings on demand, or what the call "Handshake here", we personally know our seller clients. With fully signed and legitimate Listing Contract, along with proof of the seller’s identification, legal titles. The majority of our photos were physically taken by our Professional photographers, and are the real deal!
Many of our listings are exclusive to Reliable Realty – meaning we know our sellers well, are well situated to work with our sellers for a fair negotiation; meaing we can also provide speedy, yet accurate closings with easy transfer of title into our new owners names. Knowing the status and personal requirements of each Seller, makes our Agency transparant with a higher chance of our Buyer clients offers going through. No stress of "ong waits "wondering" if you offer will be accepted.
Not a High Pressure Agency
To be quite honest, we are too busy to "chase leads.” We believe that when you are "ready, willing and able" to purchase/ or sell, you will select the agency you trust and are most comfortable with. We hope that will be RELIABLE REALTY SRL!
Embracing the Local Business Culture with Community Initiatives
Our experiences in Punta Cana have helped us adapt to and embrace to the local Caribbean (Latin) business culture. Here procedures take longer and local networking is extremely important; primarily done face to face, rather than by phone or email. We have earned the trust of Buyers and Sellers from all over the world, Reputable Developers, Legal Attorneys, Contractors, Suppliers, and an endless array of other Professionals whom over several years, we have built strong and trusting relationships; consistently maintaining a good reputation in the industry. We all work hard, long, and have learned to be patient yet persistent!
We believe in giving back to the community when we can. See our top 3 Corporate Initiatives here: 1) Trash/ Recycling; 2) Dog/ Cat Rescue Assistance; 3) Donations and support to local schools.
Committed to Ongoing Relationships
When you purchase with Reliable Realty DR, you become part of the growing community (family) of satisfied Reliable Realty Owners. 4-6 times a year our agency hosts group excursions (often sailing tours) for our community of Owner clients, Repeat Vacationers, friends and family. Often our clients become our life-long friends for life. Many Owners and vactioning guests often plan their return trips together so they never feel alone and always have an array of things to do together. Our office is only a short walk away from nearly all the selling and rental communities we represent, so we are always here to assist, advise, and visit. We are highly committed to these ongoing relationships because much of business comes from repeat clients, referrals, and word of mouth.
Although our primarily clients are English-speaking buyers, sellers, and investors, our agency collectively speaks, reads and writes English, Spanish, French, and Dutch. With hands-on collaborators who will assist with Russian, German and Italian.
