Newsletter Sign in for Rebecca

I am a passionate 3rd generation realtor, having caught the real estate bug from my Mother and Grandfather.  As a Certified Costa Rica Realtor, I specialize in the sale and purchase of luxury properties in the Costa Ballena region.  To this I bring my extensive sales, marketing and negotiating skills which were honed, in a high-level retail career, where I skillfully negotiated and delivered sales contracts worth tens-of-thousands to tens-of-millions. I am proud that my keynote traits; action, authenticity and accountability shine through in every relationship and transaction, as is proven through the feedback from my clients.  I have personal experience purchasing land, construction of an income property and business development. I speak English and Spanish and enjoy sharing my local knowledge and showcasing listings that align with the criteria and budgets of incoming house hunters from around the globe, most notably European countries.

For several years before moving to Costa Rica, I was longing for a high-quality slower pace of life, for my sanity and my health.  My high-level career in corporations and commuting hours each day had beat me up for two-and-a-half decades.  After a visit to Costa Rica in 2011 and touring the country extensively, I put the wheels in motion to relocate from Canada, and made the leap in 2014, selling and donating my lifetime of possessions, home and vehicles and moved full-time to Costa Rica, creating and embracing my fabulous new life!  I chose Ojochal, in the south Pacific region of Costa Rica, referred to as Costa Ballena (whale coast), which is known for unspoiled natural beauty, where the mountains meet the sea, lesser populated and richly biodiverse, with a fantastic assortment of top-quality restaurants (I’m a foodie!).  Here I bought land and built a boutique hotel which had been a dream since childhood.  The hotel remains a steady investment for me, under management by a wonderful couple welcoming guests from around the globe, while I focus full-time on my primary passion of servicing my clients in real estate.  I am not the only person fortunate to “have it all”, you can too.  Contact me to discuss your dream of investing in or relocating to Costa Rica!

Testimonials by Rebecca’s Clients

“Rebecca cares passionately about her job and her clients”

We can’t speak highly enough of Rebecca as our real estate agent. Her professionalism, knowledge, honesty, integrity and work ethic made what could have been a stressful and difficult process as seamless as could be. We had met with several realtors prior to choosing to work with Rebecca. From the very first meeting we knew she was the right person for us. Unlike others, she had done her homework and came prepared with comps, pricing and other really helpful suggestions to maximize the sale of our house. Not just our realtor, she was our partner in the sales process. Her responsiveness and communication not only helped with the logistics of the sales process, but also made us feel comfortable and secure. Rebecca cares passionately about her job and her clients and was absolutely wonderful to work with. Thank you Rebecca!

We placed our faith in Rebecca and were rewarded.

Rebecca, you were highly, and correctly, recommended as a great agent.  We placed our faith in you and were “rewarded”.  You sold our dream villa to a couple who sounds as if they will also treasure it.  Thanks for finding the right buyers and sticking with us through this odyssey!   We appreciate all you have done.

“Tenacious with a lot of character”

I thank you, Rebecca, for all the efforts done for this memorable sale.  I know you worked very hard for this sale since you took the listing, and you very quickly had the right buyer. It’s not important to bring dozens of buyers….one is enough but the right one!  You are tenacious with a lot of character and I guess this is the key to your success.  I will warmly recommend you to my friends in Costa Rica if they want to sell their property.  Wishing you all the best for your future sales and a long life full of success and health in Costa Rica.



“Took really great care of us even while we were back in the US”

We purchased our vacation home in Costa Rica with the help of Rebecca Rowntree. She answered all our questions and made the whole experience a pleasant one. Rebecca was available every time we needed her, was professional and knowledgeable and took really great care of us even while we were back in the US. Even after the sale, she has helped us adjust to Costa Rican life and we consider her a treasured friend. We would definitely recommend her to anyone who wants to live PURA VIDA! Thank You Rebecca!
