We felt as though we won the lottery when we stumbled on Tom And Lynn Saunders' website in late 2013. We met early in 2014 and recently purchased a beautiful condo in Crucita with their help and expertise. Our experience with Ecuador Beachfront Property has been 5 star all the way!! Tom and Lynn go above and beyond their obligations as realtors and have assisted us in so many ways. They are always there to provide advice and also offer help with day to day needs, such as arranging drivers, repairs, restaurant and shopping recommendations.

We were honoured to spend New Years Eve with them this year and hope that it will be the start of a new tradition
Their, honesty, integrity and professionalism has been evident in all our dealings with them.
We highly recommend this wonderful young couple for any real estate transaction, please feel free to contact us.

We always dreamed of owning a beachfront property and opening a guesthouse, after years of traveling to destinations around the world we decided on Ecuador.  We surfed through numerous websites and found www.EcuadorBeachFrontProperty.com , printed out listings and returned to Ecuador to explore and determine if the properties were truly as beautiful as portrayed on the internet. Much to our delight – they were very nice! 

We contacted Tom Saunders as our real estate agent and scheduled several showings, after contemplating our budget and reviewing prices on existing homes plus renovation costs we decided to buy a parcel of land and build with Tom.  This was our first build and Tom graciously accommodated our requests, we handed over a rough sketch of our dream home and Tom took it from there employing an architect to complete blue prints and site design. Tom introduced us to our attorney:  Vicente Ruperto Palma Garcia, who coordinated the necessary legal work for purchasing the property and ensuring a clear title/survey and permits to build.  Tom communicated with us via Skype and email keeping us informed of the progress that was being made on our property while we were wrapping things up in the states. 

Tom’s wife Lynn was very helpful in recommending accommodations, drivers and day trips during the numerous visits that we made while the work was in progress.  Tom and Lynn Saunders have exceeded our expectations! 

The guesthouse is open and we are very happy with our new lifestyle. We highly recommend www.ecuadorbeachfrontproperty.com in fact, friends of ours have recently invested in a condominium project that the Saunders family is building.  Thank you Tom and Lynn, it has been a pleasure doing business with you and developing our friendship along the way – Saludos!

Please share our information with potential clients, we’ll be glad to answer their questions and accommodate them at our guesthouse when they visit Ecuador!

Tom Saunders and Ecuador Beachfront Property; My game changer.

I have been looking all over Latin American for the perfect ocean front home. My dream has always been to own my own little palm tree paradise and wake to the sound of ocean waves and the smell of fresh salt air. However, I was on a pretty tight budget and I needed help.  It is a scary, difficult process looking and purchasing a home in a foreign country. Tom made the process fun and exciting. Tom’s knowledge of Ecuador’s real estate market, construction experience, and his friendly nature put me at ease right away. With Tom I was in good hands.

For anyone looking to find their dream home by the sea, Tom Saunders is the man to know. Tom is more than a great real estate agent; he is a true friend.

Thank you Tom for helping me make my dream come true. I love my house more and more every day.

Our new house is located in a tiny town on the coast of Ecuador, on the beach, and was built by Tom Saunders in 4 months flat. For anyone who's attempted such a feat, that's a shocking accomplishment. Especially if it's built to North American standards. In retrospect their knowledge, experience, and savvy made our first (and probably only) built home a very satisfying experience overall.
Again, thank you Tom for accommodating, facilitating, and expediting our dream.

Having a beachfront home in a tropical region had always been a dream of ours. My wife Danielle lived in Montreal all her life until moving to NJ in 2010. As a young child she knew someday she would be living on a beautiful beach in the tropics, NJ was that first step south to her dream.

I grew up in NY and lived for the summer going to Nathan’s in Coney Island and playing on the beach until the sun went down. When my children were young it was time to leave NY and head south (50 miles to the Jersey Shore). It wasn’t a big move but it was one step closer to the real south and eternal summer of my dreams.

In 2008 Danielle and I met, you guessed it, on a cruise ship in the Caribbean. In 2012 Danielle and I married and immediately started thinking how we could make our dreams a reality. We started reading many books and magazines about retiring in the Caribbean, Costa Rica, Panama or Ecuador. Neither of us had ever been to Ecuador so it was time for a fact-finding visit. By 2014 we had done a lot of research but really felt like it was a shot in the dark picking the right place and where do we start. That is when we came across Lynn and Tom. Right from our first correspondence we felt we had made friends. Tom made arrangements for a taxi to meet us at the airport (who ended up waiting about an hour for us); the driver was so nice he even apologized to us for our flight being delayed. About 10 minutes after arriving in our room Lynn was there to give us a warm greeting with her son in her arms. We would spend the next 10 days having a few meals together in the local restaurants with them and their 2 sons.  When Tom was not

The greatest thing that we can say about buying land with the guidance of Tom Saunders is that there were really no surprises and we were well prepped for what to expect throughout the process.  I think the most difficult part of any deal in life is matching expectations to reality.  Although sales is important, solid servicing separates the Saunders from the rest of the herd.  In this light, they have a history of providing us with timely suggestions, observations and general information re: activities which may be influencing the value of our purchase.  Their personal experiences as successful land owners and facilitators for sellers and buyers has served them well.  We have joined the ranks of satisfied customers and are looking forward to working with them through the construction phase on our property.

Our experience working with Tom and Lynn at Ecuador Beachfront Property was absolutely wonderful. From the very first email and phone call both of them were friendly, knowledgeable and willing to go above and beyond normal expectations to help us feel comfortable and informed. In fact, we felt so good about the situation that we bought our beach home before we even traveled to Ecuador or saw the actual property. Tom introduced us to a wonderful bilingual attorney nearby who was able to assist us with a POA to complete the purchase from our home. When we arrived to see the area and home we had no surprises the property was just as we had expected and we could not have been more pleased.

Tom and Lynn’s excellent service to us did not stop after the purchase was made, they continued to be available to answer all our questions each step along the way. When we traveled to visit our home for the first time, Tom made arrangements to have a driver pick us up at the airport and take us straight to our home, this was a great blessing to us with this being our first time in Ecuador, not speaking the language and being very unfamiliar with the area and us arriving late in the evening. Tom was waiting for us at the

When I came to Ecuador to research real estate prices; I didn’t know what to expect. The very next day I arrived in Manta. I called a few local agents but due to their inability to find me something in my price range and in a comfortable area, I decided to call Ecuador Beachfront Property. A gentleman by the name of Tom Saunders answered. He asked me some basic questions on what I was looking for. After a brief conversation, I agreed to visit him in the town of San Clemente, a small cozy town just a little under an hour drive from Manta. It was a welcomed site. It was quiet and had a friendly vibe to it. Tom met me in town. Thank God, he knew Spanish to guide the taxi driver to our meeting spot.

Upon my arrival, he and his charming family invited me into his home for a cool beverage and showed me online some of the properties that might interest me. Once we decided on a couple, he took me on a tour of these properties.  I have to admit that it was a hard decision to choose which property I wanted.  Once back at his home, I got to meet some more of his family, mom and dad. The whole family welcomed me and fed me a great lunch.  When it was time to make a decision Tom and his lovely wife, Lynn gave exact details of what to expect. I allowed Tom to act on my behalf and left a power of attorney to him, which was the easiest way to go due to the fact that my flight left in a couple of days. They were very trust worthy and kept me in the loop at all times. It is good to know that when I do return to Ecuador, I have friends.
