The foundation of Costa del Sol Properties is to sell and represent properties in the area around Dominical, Costa Rica, using the same principles and ethical practices the US and Canada employ as their guidelines. This is where a majority of our clients originate, what they are familiar with, and what they expect. We verify the facts before we list a property and use the same standards as the US and Canada.
Our clients will not be surprised when they see the property for the first time. You will get the facts and have a true feel of the property before you arrive. No high pressure here as we want both the seller and buyer to be comfortable with the resulting transaction. Once you arrive, the beauty of the this part of the country and the people of Costa Rica will do the rest to capture your heart.
Most of the photos on the website, both property and nature-related were taken locally by Dave West. Many others were generously provided by clients, friends and family to be displayed. If you have any photos you would like to share for us to include on our website, please send them to the e-mail listed below for review. Thanks.

Dave is Co-Owner and General Manager for RE/MAX Costa del Sol Properties. He was a Program Director for US WEST in Colorado, where he directed major technical projects that spanned fourteen western states before retiring several years ago. For many years he has been a real estate investor and focused on luxury harbor-side properties in Destin, Florida. Then his wife, Debbie, discovered Dominical and life in the retirement lane changed. In addition to managing the marketing and administrative aspects of the firm in Dominical, Dave travels to major international luxury real estate conferences and seminars to promote Dominical and the Costa Ballena region.
In addition to participating in the same activities as his wife, Dave enjoys other activities they do including competitive running, sailing and traveling.
Debbie West Co-Owner/Broker concentrates her activities on RE/MAX Costa del Sol Properties portfolio using her extensive 40+ years of experience, as a successful real estate investor primarily in Alaska, Colorado, Florida, Nevada and Costa Rica. She owned an accounting company for 25 years in Alaska before retiring and then discovering Dominical several years later. Debbie was attracted by the beauty of area, the people – Costa Ricans, North Americans, and Europeans, and the real estate investment potential the area possesses. She brings investor eyes and only represents property she views as investment grade.
Debbie enjoys piloting her Cessna 182 throughout the United States and Canada when time allows, as well as, large formation skydiving, skiing — especially helicopter skiing, scuba diving, mountain trekking, water-skiing and just about anything that gets her outdoors; plus partner dancing and traveling. Deb is trying to learn to surf now that she is living in a mecca for surfing but fears she may be too old for this challenging sport. The combined families of Dave, her husband, and Deb consist of two sons, two daughters, two son-in-laws, one daughter-in-law and five grandchildren.
Vanessa is the Media Manager for RE/MAX Costa del Sol Properties. Since she was a child she has had a great passion for travel and getting to know other cultures, which has only grown over the years. She first came to Costa Rica four years ago and fell in love with the country, the people, and the man that is now her husband. After several years of traveling Latin America and moving between Costa Rica and the US with her husband, Andres, she has returned to Costa Rica and has chosen to make her home in Dominical. She loves camping, backpacking, skiing, swimming and is happy just to be active, outdoors and in nature.
Featured Local Artist
Our office features outdoor murals and other examples of artwork by local artist Freddy Blandon, including several tropical paintings that are on display and others available for purchase. Originally from the Caribbean side of Costa Rica, Freddy now resides in the Dominical area and has examples of his talents in many of the homes and businesses in the community. He can be commissioned to paint about anything you can imagine or give him a seed of an idea and he will most likely create something you could not even imagine. Arrangements can be made to ship his work outside Costa Rica or arranged to safely hand-carry with you. Examples of his artwork occasionally appear center stage on our homepage so take some time to watch for them to show up. He is very approachable and will be pleased to create something unique for you to keep for yourself, give to family or present to a friend.
