Relocation Services

Finding a community to call home is an adventure, especially when moving to or investing in another country. At KRAIN, we fully appreciate that purchasing a property in Costa Rica is not only about finding the perfect home and embracing the surrounding lifestyle, but knowing that you will be introduced to the proper professionals who can help make your experience a true success.

That’s where we come in. Our team of experienced, licensed specialists is here to assist you in understanding what life in Costa Rica is like. Whether you are looking for that dreamy beachfront home, marina condo, golf course retreat, equestrian estate, stunning ocean-view getaway, or a residence deep within the Costa Rican jungle, the KRAIN Relocation team will quickly get you there.

Our cadre of top professionals has spent the last decade working exclusively with American, Canadian, and European buyers, assisting all in their search for prime properties throughout the country.  The relocation process can be extremely complex  -- vastly different from more traditional moves.  Thus, we are here every step of the way to advise on where to live based on ease of access (i.e., near airports, major roads, etc.), desired amenities, any needs for essential services, highly coveted beaches, city size, availability of private schools, and quality medical care.


Our Relocation Department coordinator, Gloriella Chaverri, has been an integral part of KRAIN for more than seven years, working directly with referral and relocation partners, individual clients, and outside human resource departments to successfully move individuals and families throughout Costa Rica. She is well-equipped in matching clients with the right KRAIN real estate agents or referral partners, helping individuals achieve their lifestyle and location goals.


Our real estate agents are local experts who have chosen to live, work, and put down roots here. We will listen to your needs and be there with you every step of the way as you explore the beautiful and distinctive areas that make Costa Rica so globally renowned.  We will also introduce you to a variety of professionals who may be helpful to you throughout the homebuying process  -- including legal experts, accountants, home inspectors, and medical professionals  -- and we will be sure to show you where all of the fun, local hotspots and amenities are located, from the best restaurants and surf spots, to grocery stores, hair salons and shopping boutiques.


And our relocation support doesn’t stop there. Through our Property Management department, our team of dedicated professionals is well-versed in giving clients the assurance they need by providing asset protection, bill pay services, accounting and tax services, turnkey management solutions, and beyond, offering the best possible chances of success as you begin your new chapter here in Costa Rica.
