Working with Ron Snell has been an absolute joy and privilege.

Working with Ron Snell has been an absolute joy and privilege.  I would love nothing more than to give a list of all the things Ron has done for my wife and I but it would be too long for a reference letter.  Probably the best thing I could say about Ron is he is still without a doubt my best resource in Costa Rica.  He is long past the sale, in fact over a year has passed since we purchased our property, and Ron continues to help me with all manner of things.  After the sale, when there was no more commission coming for Ron, he was still there and he was helping in ways you would not imagine.  Ron introduced me to various builders and architects.  Ron helped me find people with the equipment to chop our area and work on our driveway.  Ron helped me understand Costa Rica rules and regulations.  In other words, Ron cares about the people he works with and it shows.  He will not make the sale and disappear check in hand.  I have purchased many properties in the United States and worked with all sorts of realtors.  Some were good some were bad.  None of them worked for me like Ron.  He put up with our questions and confusion.  He was there all the way through the process.  He seems to know someone for any situation you may encounter.  This I believe is due to his reputation in the area for treating people well.  His knowledge of the area is the best and his work ethic is incredible.  I cannot recommend him more strongly if you are interested in Costa Rica. 

Ron has been a great resource.

Ron has been a great resource not only for purchasing a property in Costa Rica but also just for general education.  He has been very patient and always readily available as we worked together for over a year and changed our strategy during the process.  Along the way Ron has helped introduce us to valuable resources via his network, all of whom I must say are just super good people – not surprising good people run around together.  Ron is always available to talk about almost anything in a very approachable way while being very candid – which I love.  We will use Ron again for sure in the future and consider him as one of our new-found friends in Costa Rica.

We not only got a great realtor, we now have good friend.

I would highly recommend Ron and his professionalism to anyone. I was amazed how simple it was to purchase the property of our dreams. I am retiring in a few years and wanted to rent out our property, Ron and his associates were able to find us the perfect renters. This was above and beyond normal commitments…On top of that my wife wanted to have a few trees planted on our property and Ron on his dime did this for us.  We not only got a great realtor, we now have good friend.

My wife and I were looking to invest in some property outside of the USA. We just sold our house and wanted to see where we might get the best opportunity for our money. We had planed a trip to Costa Rica last April and were looking at different areas that would give us the best investment. I reached out to some realtors and only got one creditable response. Ron Snell of Vesta Group Domincal.


We met with Ron and he showed us different properties, we really like one very much but it was out of our price range. He said to make an offer and he would negotiate with the owners. To our surprise they accepted with some small exceptions.


Ron helped us set up all the necessary legal documents to purchase property in Costa Rica. Along with these contacts was his wife Tammy a Para legal who along with a lawyer and escrow company set up and answered all of our questions and concerns. This was very easy and completed this all in just a few days. Once we set everything  up we were able to finish the purchase back home through the Internet.

He is a consummate professional, with a caring attitude.

Ron helped us sell our home in Costa Rica and made the process enjoyable and easy. He is a consummate professional, with a caring attitude, and has a true passion for Costa Rica and particularly the Southern Pacific Zone.  Ron is fluent in Spanish and helped us move forward easily with needed projects to get the house ready for sale. We thank him for his help and guidance with the sale of our home.

We hit the jackpot!

In choosing a realtor, we hit the jackpot!

Most important out of the gate: Ron is HONEST.  He would rather lose a sale than sell you a klunker. He is THAT honest!  He comfortably shares options and opinions, and is not afraid of snakes or climbing through dense jungle to show you your best view! He is funny and so very knowledgeable about flora, fauna, bugs and amphibians - and is simply, a wonderful human being.  Ron knows the area, understands the challenges of moving from the US to Costa Rica, and stays on top of current pricing trends in the Southern Pacific Zone. This charming man speaks fluent English and Spanish, and has lived and traveled over much of the world. 


We very much enjoyed our house hunting with him, and have made life long friends with he and his lovely wife, Tammy.  It was a pleasure working with Ron Snell and we love our new home!!!

We found him to be helpful when he didn't need to be...

Ron Snell is a Vesta Group Dominical Sales Associate whom we met when we bought a house in Ojochal.  Although he did not act as our agent, we found him to be helpful when he didn't need to be, as well as kind, funny, and with a broad range of knowledge and interests.  We have become friends during the many months we have lived here and we feel certain he would serve you well as a realtor, SUP instructor, Spanish teacher, and insect photographer!  

We consider him the finest real estate agent we have ever dealth with.

My wife and I have searched everywhere in Costa Rica for our retirement property. Falling  in love with the "Jungle meets Beach" atmosphere of the Osa Peninsula we were convinced we found our dream! After contacting numerous Real estate offices with no success we got a response from Ron Snell of Coldwell Bankers. His professional approach towards our desires and requests were outstanding. He has the patience of a Saint and a personality which is honest and sincere. His no pressure sales and Pura Vida attitude helped us find our amazing property.  Ron's knowledge of living in the Jungle and Beach areas are significant. His bilingual skills helped us navigate through the entire process. We consider him the finest Real Estate Agent we have ever dealt with! Besides finding our property of our Dreams we have found a friend for life in Ron Snell !!
