Testimonials by Marcia’s Clients

“She guided us well every step of the way to the purchase of our new home”

We had such a wonderful experience with Marcia Oro! She was very professional, insightful, and guided us well every step of the way to the purchase of our new home. Excellent service from Osa Tropical Properties!

“This customer-oriented attention did not end with the house purchase”

My partner and I purchased a home in November 2022 with the assistance of Marcia Oro and Osa Tropical Properties. Marcia and Osa are the best and I HIGHLY recommend both. We first met Marcia in June 2022 when we were looking at houses in the south coast area. She showed us the house we ended up purchasing. The purchase and closing was a breeze. Marcia is so knowledgeable and goes to every effort to find out if she doesn’t know the answer to a question. Her recommendations for attorneys for the real estate sale, and for residency, for insurance, and for everything else she’s helped us with have been top notch. This customer-oriented attention did not end with the house purchase. Marcia and Osa have been assisting with having an air conditioner replaced and with paying bills until we move to Costa Rica; they have been an invaluable resource. I had not met Marcia or had any connection Osa Tropical until we met in June 2022, so this isn’t some solicited review – it is genuine – and I am so, so grateful to Marcia and Osa. I recommend both with great confidence.

“We found a gorgeous lot in this competitive market.”

We had a terrific experience with Marcia in our search for an ocean view lot. She hung in there while we fine tuned our wish list and worked out what we really wanted. Ultimately, we found a gorgeous lot in this competitive market. We highly recommend Marcia.

“Marcia was always great at minimizing that stress”

Selling a home in a foreign country is stressful and Marcia was always great at minimizing that stress. She worked hard to get our property shown to as many people as possible. She always gave immediate feedback from the showings so that we could collaborate on how to highlight the best features of our property. She offered good advice when needed and was even helpful in finding buyers our vehicles. We enjoyed working with her.

“I would highly recommend her…many times over!”

My husband and I feel in love with the Costa Ballena area and were determined to find a good property there. We were fortunate that I happened to reach out to Marcia Oro about a property that we found. Marcia was incredible responsive, found a time to meet with us right away, and then proceeded to drive us around the mountain showing us a whole list of properties that she thought might be what we were looking for. Through our several days together, she got to know our “wants” and what we were hoping to find, and lo and behold, she called us one morning and said she thought she had found the perfect one…it wasn’t even on the market yet! Turned out she was right. Marcia went above and beyond answering tons of our questions, was extremely patient, explained the foreign process to us, and made sure we had a good attorney to help us. She’s been in the area for a long time, knows it and the people, and really was reassuring to work with. I would highly recommend her…many times over!

“Marcia Oro and Osa Tropical Properties, absolutely FABULOUS and PROFESSIONAL”

Marcia was our realtor for our recent property purchase in Ojochal, Costa Rica. She made the process practically seamless! She was very available to show us properties, efficiently helped us write our offer, and always answered or got answers to our questions quickly. She assisted us to find professionals to close, inspect and insure our new home and was always right there to help. She represented both the seller and buyer and we could see she strived to fairly represent us both. She is very knowledgeable about the area and shared lots of information about what to consider when buying in a new country. Marcia was absolutely fabulous and professional in every way. We would work with Marcia and Osa Tropical Properties again and give her our HIGHEST recommendation. THANK YOU MARCIA!

Jody and Kelly F.

“I highly recommend Marcia and her company for any of your real estate needs”

I have known Marcia for several years since meeting her in Costa Rica after I purchased my property in Ojochal. She has always been a wealth of information regarding the southern zone of Costa Rica. When decided to sell my property, there was nobody else I would consider listing the property. It sold within 3 weeks and the sale went extremely smooth. I highly recommend Marcia and her company for any of your real estate needs in the southern zone of Costa Rica. Pura Vida!!

“Marcia Oro at Osa Tropical Properties did an outstanding job”

Marcia Oro at Osa Tropical Properties did an outstanding job representing my corporation, La Caballeria, in the sale of our lot at Finca Marañon. She obtained a good price and guided us through the steps necessary to get to settlement. My wife Mary & I are present using Marcia as our agent in the acquisition of another property.

“Marcia led us through our home buying adventure in Costa Rica with expertise and a lot of patience”

Realtor Marcia Oro of Osa Tropical Properties led us through our home buying adventure in Costa Rica with expertise and a lot of patience. We really didn’t know what we wanted, we had no clue how to go about a purchase, and we don’t speak much Spanish. Thankfully Marcia is very knowledgeable about the many different communities in the Southern Pacific Zone and the real estate market, which is why she was so highly recommended. She showed us a lot of homes, helped us make a decision, and then set us up with a wonderful lawyer and escrow company. She explained the entire process ahead of time, and also answered our numerous questions at every step. Our purchase went through without a hitch and we are now enjoying our beautiful jungle house!

“[She] went the extra mile to get things done and make things happen”

I was introduced to Marcia in March while visiting friends in Ojochal, she showed me properties for 2 days, we found a beautiful lot, made an offer & closed last week. The process was difficult at times but Marcia was my eyes, ears and boots on the ground as I am still living in the USA. She went the extra mile to get things done and make things happen! Many thanks for the extra effort Marcia ! Can’t wait to start building!

“[A] smooth transition from us to a happy new owner”

Marcia just sold our home in Chontales. We listed with Osa Tropical Properties because of her extensive knowledge of the area, and reputation for working with others. As out-of-country owners, she oversaw our property from the time of listing through the difficult closing process that ended with a smooth transition from us to a happy new owner. Thank you Marcia!

Nikki S.


“Marcia thank you so much you made it happen for us…”

My husband and I have lived in Costa Rica now for 12 years. We have owned three homes and Marcia Oro has listed our homes and also sold them for us. We needed to sell our current home within thirty days because of a family member being ill and Marcia did that. We just closed on our home today.

We would never use another realtor she knows the market, she is very professional, hard working and goes beyond helping you get your home sold. We will be calling on Marcia when we come back to Costa Rica to buy our fourth home from her. Marcia Thank you so much you made it happen for us.

Jackie & Bob


“From start to finish, I knew I was in good hands…”

Marcia was the realtor when I sold my first house in Chontales. She was fantastic, did all the right things to show the house and was very professional throughout the entire process. From setting up the listing, to the photos and video of the house, to showing the house, to negotiating the best deal for me, to ensuring the closing went smoothly.

So, of course, when the time came to sell my second house, there was no question…Marcia was the obvious choice. As good a job Marcia did with my first house, she was even better with this sale. From start to finish, I knew I was in good hands with Marcia.
