We are based in Panajachel and our portfolio covers a diverse selection of properties to suit every taste and budget, situated in towns and rural areas around the lake shore and parts of the caldera.
We are an El Salvadorian / British couple, who have chosen Lake Atitlan as our home. Between us we have an extensive knowledge of Guatemala, the Lake Atitlan area, tourism, and real estate. Not only can we help you with all your real estate requirements, but also with any transport or travel, finding a Spanish teacher or school, or information on volunteer opportunities, visa requirements, or supporting one of the many wonderful NGOs (non-profits) working around the lake.
We are here to help you find your perfect dream home to buy or rent, or buy and then rent! And we will do whatever we can to make this experience as stress free as possible. Buying a property in a foreign country like Guatemala can seem a daunting prospect without the language or local know-how. We can help you through the labyrinth of Guatemalan bureaucracy and red tape, acting as your advocate and translator; be it for the purchase or a property, to ship furniture or other goods, or just to renew your tourist visa.
Once you have found your perfect home, if you are not planning to be there full-time, we can also help rent your home as a profitable vacation rental, and/or manage it, keeping an eye on maintenance (very important during the rainy season) and paying your workers etc.
In all respects we go the extra mile to provide you with a professional service.
