[News Boquete] Thank you Boquete

Dear Friends,

As you know, this was a horrific year for me with the passing of "Don Frank." If it had not been for his close loving friends who looked after me, I never would have made it.

And Thank You to the Boquete Community. Words cannot express my gratitude for the support, friendship, kindness, and generosity shown to me in that time.

As Frank became more ill, he asked me with tears in his eyes what I was going to do, sell the property or stay here.  At that time my main concern was him.

But now as I was walking the streets doing my errands, the answer became clear. I do not think I could ever find the sense of community anywhere else but here in Boquete; this is my home.

Thank you all for helping me through this difficult year.

Carol Cardinale-Santana

Today the Panama Canal continues to be a true marvel to experience, both on a ship cruising through it and from shore excursions along it. More....

 Building in Paradise

 

When I first arrived in Panama in 2006 and asked about building a home, I was told to run away and run away fast!  As time went by, I saw some impressive construction taking place, both commercial and residential.  My fear factor diminished and I decided that the time was right to build my dream home.  I selected a nice lot in Panamonte Estates here in Boquete and broke ground in May of 2013.  Thirteen months later, we moved into our home with a punch list of items that I counted on one hand.  With that experience, we began our newest service that we can offer our clients.  We started a build-to-suit project management service and we are starting with a nice rental community project.

We have built 6 luxury homes now and we are working on our largest project yet, a 7,500 sf ultra luxury home near us here in Panamonte.   

     

        Let us know if you want a proposal for designing and building your dream home.
