Dear Lynn and Tom, this is just a note to say how very pleased with have been with the way all of our business dealings with you have been over the years.  I am not sure I have ever told you but we actually interviewed three other real estate companies in Equador prior to choosing you and you have never disappointed us.  Your professionalism and personal touch and care for us and our property has given us total peace with not only our purchase but in deciding to have you manage our property as well.

Thank you for always being there and meeting all our needs whenever they arise.  Please feel free to use us as a reference or this as a testimonial as you have earned it!
All our best,
Alan and Karen Bennett (June 2019)

We met Tom online in 2012, while looking for a property on the coast of Ecuador.  At the time, he was the agent for a nice little condo on the beach in Crucita.  When we found that condo too small for what we wanted, he introduced us to his Ensenada del Pacifico project in San Clemente.  We loved the location and layout options, and bought in immediately.

 When we visited in the summer of 2013, Tom gave us a tour of the property and area.  His enthousiasm and excitement about the project were contagious.  Construction started in the summer of 2014, during our second visit to Ecuador.  It was fascinating to watch.  Tom and Lynn kept all their buyers in the loop during the construction with pictures and videos.

 We were set to take possession of our unit in June of 2016 and had our third trip to Ecuador booked for the summer.  But the earthquake in April of that year changed that.  The buildings suffered cosmetic, but no structural damage.  I was going to say fortunately, but in reality, it was because of the quality of the construction.  When Tom first showed us the plans for the project, he bragged that it would be built to earthquake standards exceeding California’s.  A 7.8 magnitude quake

I first heard about the beautiful coast of Ecuador from watching House Hunters International. I was surprised how reasonable beachfront property was and decided to learn more. I found Tom and Lynn’s Ecuador Beachfront Property website and learned a lot from their blog alone, even before speaking with them. I sent an email to Tom and he was kind enough to speak with me on the phone. He called me and spent 45 minutes answering all my questions (I had a lot!!!)

From that point on, we established a great relationship, and we decided to work with them to find property for my husband and I on the coast. Choosing their new property, Ensenada del Pacifico in San Clemente was a no-brainer, and they guided us through each step of the purchasing process with ease. Being from the US, we were not familiar with Ecuador laws and regulations and Tom and Lynn provided us with answers and arranged for a power of attorney to assist with the purchasing process while we were in the States, guiding (and translating when necessary) us through every step. This process was easier than I would have imagined with

When doing our research on Ecuador as a place to start a business and make a life change we came across Ecuador Beachfront Property. Connecting with Tom and Lynn and having some phone conversations it felt like we had found a great starting point for our exploration of Ecuador. They were friendly, well informed, and had an easy going, no-pressure attitude to helping us discover the possibilities. The Ecuador guide they have developed was extremely informative and helped set some expectations and understanding for our trip. 

Once on the ground we started to look at properties/options, Tom and Lynn are very professional, this combined with their style made it a fun adventure to review and develop a feel for properties and the area.  We knew Ecuador was at the top of our list of countries to look at and meeting them took some of the guesswork out of a starting point for our search. Tom listened and understood our needs/parameters and lined up a handful of well-targeted properties that fit our criteria. Their understanding

My first visit to Ecuador was in May of 2011. The trip was a 40th birthday gift from my parents. My father had visited many times in the past because of family who live there and also my grandfather was born there. I had always heard the stories of his travels there and someday wanted to travel there myself. After that first amazing visit, I knew right away that I wanted to someday have a vacation home there and eventually retire there. My girlfriend Janet and I traveled there in March in 2016. She immediately fell in love with the country as well and we both agreed how great it would be to have a home there someday. 
Fast forward to 2018, we were ready financially to pull the trigger on a property. While searching online for properties, I came across Tom and Lynn's Ecuador Beachfront Property website. Janet and I browsed through the great selection of properties they had listed and selected a handful that we were interested in. I contacted Tom in mid October and 3 weeks later Janet and I were on our way to look at the properties. 
We were initially interested in a condo as well as some wonderful free standing homes they had listed. During our visit, we stayed in San Clemente at Casa Aventura with Wayne and Jody. It was a fantastic home with beautiful gardens and a swimming pool. I realized while staying there that I would rather have an actual house rather than a condo,somewhere I could have my own outdoor space and gardens. The second day of our visit, Lynn was showing us another property and said she had to check in on a new

Hello to all who may be considering buying property and moving to Ecuador. Hopefully my story will
help you in that decision.

Prior to finding Ecuador Beachfront Property I spent hundreds – literally hundreds of hours on the
internet scouring every imaginable country – you name it, I researched it. I finally landed on,

saw one of their listings which looked promising from the great pictures on their
site, but also had a video link to Home and Garden’s show of Beachfront Bargain Hunt. That video “tour” is
what sold me. I knew I need look no further and my search had come to an end. Everything about the house resonated to my core.

That was in July of 2017. Long story short, through emails, then eventually by a few phone calls, I got the
details of the house - it’s pros and cons and possible next steps. All along the way, Tom and Lynn were
low-key, never once tried to sell me, but provide me accurate information.  I then asked for references from clients such as myself from the states and what their experiences had been. Each had glowing remarks with only positive things to say.

All this took a few months and at no time did I think I needed to see the property in person – my
comfort level was so relaxed due to how Tom and Lynn replied to each of my inquires. They had
