Beth & Joe - Columbia, Missouri, USA

We worked with Scott for the purchase of our condo in Bavaro.  Scott’s professionalism and knowledge of the area was essential to our finding the perfect place to meet our needs.  He listened to us and worked to assure that we got exactly what we wanted in our retirement condo.  His assistance with finalizing the details, as well as working with the local people, was essential to our comfortable transition to this new life in the Caribbean.  Now, if we could only retire early and move there now!

Hi Scott,

I am so happy I have finally found my  place in the Caribbean!!

I met Scott Medina in April 2009.  He was referred to me by a friend.  Scott has provided professional service and all the information I needed to buy in Dominican Republic.  He answered all my questions about buying in the DR and also when I have been back in the country he has helped me and answered many questions.  La Costa Destinations International Realty is a very good company.  They find everything you need and when you contact Scott, he is very fast to answer.

Punta Cana is very nice country,  the beaches with white sand and the color of the sea is marvelous.  It is also secure to walk in the street, to buy food,  go to restaurants or shopping center. Everything is close.  I will not hesitate to recommend Scott Medina or his company because the service is PROFESSIONAL!!!

Thank you very much Scott for everything and for helping me find my place in Punta Cana
