Hi!  I’m Roma Vargas, a lifelong resident of Guadalupe, San José, Costa Rica and I am proud to say how much I enjoy the history and culture of Costa Rica and how proud I am of my country. I look forward to sharing these things with you!

I had the opportunity of traveling around the world for many years, and this opened my mind to various cultures and experiences, allowing me to understand and appreciate the different lifestyles around the world.  My goal is to build solid relationships with my clients that result in "win/win" situations.

I’m a self motivated, independent person with the ability to stay focused on my work... in this case, finding YOU the best home at the best price! That's what I call win-win!

I have over  30 years Customer Service experience and also Security and Investigations experience which benefit my activities in Real Estate as we routinely check to make sure what you see is what you are going to get.  No Surprises!

I am passionate about the Real Estate Industry and I am bound by Code of Conduct and Code of Ethics of the Costa Rican Chamber of Real Estate Brokers.  Both my brokers and I undergo continual professional development and study which keep our agency and people at the top of the real estate elite.

Vanessa Hernánde
Interior Decorator.

Vanessa’s Interior Design experience and high quality standards have been present in her client’s homes, offices and commercial spaces since 1993. Also, her work has been widely recognized all beyond Costa Rica, since most of her clients are nationals of other countries, mostly US. She writes articles for specialized magazines and local newspapers with high regularity, and gives speeches at DIY centers and TV quite often.

Custom-made furniture, renovations and design consultation are the strong areas of expertise that can be confirmed with testimonies from clients and a rich portfolio of past works.

Specific examples of her work are several beach condominiums, urban and suburban residences, offices, commercial buildings and shops. Some of such works were the result of teamwork with local architects and engineers, including lighting planning and landscaping.

One of the main areas of her expertise is Color Consultation and she has become the leading voice of a very important international paint manufacturer for eight years in a row.

Vanessa has an extensive history in Home Staging services, known to some customers as the “magic touch that makes a house sell”. She will find and correct those little problems that keep your house from selling and sometimes even increase the value of your property so you end up with more money in your pocket.
