My first foray into Real Estate started at a tender age in Ireland, working with my uncles in construction during school vacations. This allowed me to study Building and Civil Engineering for 2 years before embarking at 19 for the Bright lights of New York City where I continued my studies at NYU graduate school.  A colorful career in the Bar and Restaurant business spanning 20 years lead me to building and operating my own establishments. Just when it all was going good, my wife decided its time to sell up and move on. Luckily we managed to sell our renovated town home in Brooklyn in early 2008, and started an epic roadtrip which finished once we set foot in what we like to call our ‘little piece of paradise’; San Juan Del Sur.
My first years here existed as co-founder of San Juan del Sur Day School and operating a 4×4 rental business. This took me up and down every road and ox path in the area. Between the two, I have sat on the fence for many a conversation, listening to both potential buyers and property owners, and feel very comfortable, not just expressing my knowledge and opinions of the local area real estate, but also the trials and tribulations of moving to a foreign land, again!
