"My husband and I listed two properties with Yalile Alpizar between 2011 and 2013. An upscale 320m2 condo in the heart of Escazu and a 450m2 house on 7 hectares in Uvita de Osa. The condo was not an exclusive, we had 9 or so relators we were working with. However, Yalile was the only one who consistently brought qualified buyers. When we had our first offer, it was low. Yalile recommended not accepting it. As the condo had been for sale for almost 6 months and the economy was down and the market was glutted, it was a hard choice. Within 10 days, she had a new offer at 90% of our asking price. The deal closed 2 months later. We were thrilled. This sale gave us the confidence to list our finca in Osa with her as an exclusive. Within 8 months of the listing we had a qualified buyer. The buyer was the first person to see the property. Initially, the buyer offered a low price which she coached us into not accepting. We closed - again - at 90% of our asking price. Both transactions were handled with ease and grace. Yalile is trustworthy, hardworking, fair and honest. These aren't always easy characteristics to find. If you are looking for a broker to sell your home, go no further. She will get the job done for you. She won't accept properties she can't sell and you can count on her to be there at the crucial moments."

We have appreciated every moment here. Even the not great times have been learning experiences. We both feel that this is home now. We are in the middle of tearing the cascades and pond in the living room completely taken out and built over, and I can have a hand in the design. Now our lives have finally settled into some semblance of normal. Enjoying every minute of this beautiful weather, we used to get 3-4 days like this in Spring and Fall, but then it was just bone crushingly hot the rest of the time. Fun to go sightseeing and act like tourists. I have still failed in my quest to see a sloth but I remain ever hopeful. Best wishes to you and your family. Every minute is a blessing.
- Much love, R and J. Harmel
I have been blessed with wonderful Realtors and you are definitely one of the great ones, Yali!!

My wife and I have worked with Yalile Alpizar and Andrea Guillen from Costa Rica Luxury Estates for several years and have known them as highly professional in their areas of expertise and knowledgeable of the market areas they represent. They are always ready, research any question, answer promptly and have guided us throughout the process of buying and selling property in Costa Rica. We have felt confident with their guidance and would recommend them highly to any other foreigner wanting to buy property in Costa Rica. Since they are a boutique firm it was important for us to know that our privacy and security was well guarded and respected by them.
As a home builder and Real Estate broker myself here in the United States for many years I know when I am working with a top notch firm.
If I had to sum it up in one word I couldn’t but the three that I think express my feeling for Yalile and her team are: Professional, Hardworking, and Ethical. In every negotiation and in every regard, I always felt my interests where their top concern.
Rather than write an anonymous recommendation I invite you to contact me directly at my email address below if you have any questions.
