Graduated from the University of Maryland at College Park, Jesse ‘Pedro’ Resau came to Nicaragua in 2002 as a Peace Corps Volunteer under the ‘Sustainable Food Security’ program. He spent half of his service in rural Matagalpa and the other half in Ciudad Darío, birthplace of famous poet Rubén Darío. During his service he worked with local community leaders teaching improved farming and organic farming techniques as well as soil & water conservation practices. With cooperation from the local school he taught local families about the environment, tree nursery practices, community banks, medicinal plants, small business practices and English. Since completing his Peace Corps service in 2004 he decided to stay in Nicaragua and work in coffee farming, real estate & development. In 2011 Pedro and his wife Gabriela purchased a RE/MAX franchise and opened to the public.
