Paradise Management is a real estate leasing, sales, and development company for the Central Valley with a focus on properties in San Ramon, Costa Rica which are integrated into local communities.
We are not merely selling you a piece of real estate, or a building site, or a house; it’s about connecting you to a life. We live here. (San Ramon Guide) The fact that we are personally nestled within the community allows us to find properties suited to your needs at an affordable price. We will introduce you to neighbors and essential professionals who will help you establish your place in a welcoming Tico community.
Our real estate development is driven by the desire to empower the community in which we have chosen to live by respecting the natural environment, choosing properties in existing neighborhoods, and promoting financial transactions that benefit local families.
Paradise Management is owned and run by Frank and Anna Maria Gillespie. Between the two of us, we have over 28 years of experience in the real estate business in both Buffalo, New York and San Ramon, Costa Rica. We offer a very special skill-set that is based on solid ethical standards and we take great care of our customers and clients. Frank had his real estate broker’s license in New York right up until the moment that we hopped on a plane to make San Ramon, Costa Rica our permanent home.
Together, we’ve explored most of Central America and every enchanting region of Costa Rica over the course of approximately ten years. We always had a feeling that Costa Rica was going to be the place that we settled down to raise a family in, and we both fell in love with San Ramon from the first time we visited. It was just a matter of figuring out how to accomplish a move to a foreign country at such a young age and with such limited financial resources. Then an obvious reality hit us! The only way to make a serious change in your life like that is by making the decision to be committed to your goal and then working towards it one day at a time. Everything is possible, and if the move to San Ramon, Costa Rica had not been positive for us, then at least we would have given this life in a different culture an honest shot and could be satisfied with that. It would not have been considered a failure if we had decided to move back to the United States or move somewhere else altogether. So, on November 5th, 2010, Buffalo, New York was left in the rearview mirror and San Ramon, Costa Rica was on the horizon.
We already owned a nice little piece of real estate in an amazing neighborhood. A small farm house, which needed serious renovation, was perched on our land overlooking the ocean. Our adventure was upon us. The previous owners of Paradise Management, Janet Shure and Steven Freidmutter, were the wonderful people who sold us our real estate here in San Ramon. They helped to make our transition into paradise as smooth as possible. Now that we are the owners of Paradise Management, we strive to offer the same comforting experience to our clients and customers. We live in San Ramon, Costa Rica full-time and want our neighbors to be happy with their purchases and happy with us as real estate agents. There is no other place in the world that we would rather live in and it will be our pleasure to assist you in transitioning your life to be our neighbors here. Some of our clients are Costa Rican, of course, so they don’t need to assimilate to a new culture, but for those of you who have questions we are certainly available. We have access to many properties and resources and our network of professional associates is vast. Our team includes a couple of bilingual Costa Rican attorneys, home inspectors, home builders, quality contractors, gardeners, housekeepers, and much more. WE have all the tools and the desire to create a positive, safe, and financially sound real estate experience for you. We’re your real estate “one-stop-shop” in San Ramon, Costa Rica.
