 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 a beautiful luxury project here called Boquete Gardens and we have finished the first 5 homes. In addition, we are beginning construction of a luxurious villa here in Panamonte Estates, perhaps the biggest and most beautiful villa of all.   If you would like to learn more, please contact us.

 

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