Reliable and Titled Listings - You can trust our listings to be legitimate and reliable because we are selective in the listings (Sellers and Properties) we represent. Unlike other agencies who do not research the title, nor often require any “listing agreements”. Many new agencies with limited no. of listings often "borrow" listings from other agencies… what they call a "Handshake Listings", we personally know our seller clients and the Builders/ Developers of New Construction. We secure fully signed and legitimate Listing Contracts, along with proof of the seller’s identification matching the legal title. The majority of our photos were physically taken by our Professional photographers, our Agents, or are direct from the owners. Meaning… these photos are all the "real deal"!

We provide efficient and accurate closings so the transfer of title into the new owner’s names has no hic-ups. We know and care about the property status updates, responding quickly to Buyer and Seller requests or concerns. This personal and timely service is what makes our Agency different, hence producing a higher chance of purchase offers to be accepted; and for the sale to process efficiently all the way through to a successful closing. No stress or long waits "wondering" if your offer will be/ or has been accepted, nor where the process of your property purchase is.
NOTE: Due to the high volume of sales related to the pandemic, we do need to kindly ask for your patience as there will be some slight delays. However, please trust we WILL meet the timelines established in the Purchase Offers.

If you don't see a specific New Construction Development on our website, please ask us as we do not represent all Developers. PLEASE NOTE: Construction cost increases are also in affect here, meaning new construction properties have been updated to reflect the true higher prices than what you may have seen them listed at before the pandemic.

We do hope you are able to find time to browse through more details about our Agency and our "truly" Full Services since 2008. If in doubt when researching, remember, it helps to ponder ..."How long has the agency been in operation in this specific area of the Dominican Republic?". Anyone can say they are the best, invent awards to tag on their website (awards that don’t exist here), and anyone can pay to have an impressive superficial website created, with beautiful rotating photos; yet completely lacking in providing current and honest information that you can actually use. We are different. We like readers and researchers who do their homework and select us because of our longevity, experience, and transparency.
