Richard Owens

Greetings to everyone! My name is Richard Owens and I have been working in real estate for over 10 years now in the Costa Ballena region with a strong focus on Ojochal, Tres Rios, and Chontales. I started my real estate career with a local developer who I worked for a number of years. It has been my pleasure for the last three years to continue my growth in the industry alongside the distinguished team at Osa Tropical Properties.

Prior to moving to Costa Rica, I began my professional life by joining the US military in May of 2001 and serving for 6 years. I changed career paths in 2007 when I started working for a local bank, then switching to insurance in 2011. After living through a number of tragedies that seemed to follow my career choices in Alabama (9/11 while I was enlisted in the military, the market crash of 2008 while working in banking, and a series of devastating tornadoes while working in insurance), I decided it was time for a change of pace, scenery, and way of life.

I moved to Costa Rica in 2012 to change my luck…. and it worked! I’m still here and wouldn’t want to have my home anywhere else. Like so many others before me and since, I fell in love with the immense and diverse beauty of this country, the friendly people, and I met my wife here (can’t get better than that!) In our free time, my wife and I love spending time on the incredible beaches of the South Pacific. Or you might find us enjoying lunch or dinner in one of the many exquisite restaurants in and around Ojochal and Uvita.

I have spent over 10 years working and living in Ojochal, evaluating and selling properties and showing people how to make room for their dream life here. I am thankful for the opportunity to continue on this journey with Osa Tropical Properties and I look forward to meeting all of you one day soon!

“He was honest, patient and a wealth of knowledge”

We spent an entire day with Richard Owens, and it was not only exciting, but extremely informative. Richard took time to point out things such as good construction practices in certain homes, while keeping us informed of others that could have potential issues in the future. He was honest, patient and a wealth of knowledge when it came to the pros and cons of certain areas. If you want to develop a relationship based on trust then Richard is your guy. It’s obvious that he cares as much about the customer as he does a potential sale.
