Client Testimonials

"This Mother-Daughter team from NY, USA purchased our first Caribbean Income Property in August 2019. Caribe Connection (Isel & her team of professionals), supported us throughout the entire process starting with listening to our objectives, showing us matching properties, assisted with purchase-offer negotiations, coordinated legal counsel, as well as being our designated Power of Attorney during the property transfer closing.

Caribe Connection's support continued after the closing, with offering proven local property management, insurance, and other local resource referrals. Some of Caribe Connection’s skill set we observed - Well organized; attention to detail; knowledgeable; great communicators; friendly; professional; outstanding customer service; reliability; and integrity - are several assets that come to mind.

Real Time - Six months later, Isel continues to reach out to check on 'how is all going?', listens, and offers suggestions for consideration - all in the spirit of assisting us with achieving both our short-term as well as long-term goals.

We give Caribe Connection Real Estate 5-stars out of a 5-star-rating! Thank You, Caribe Connection!"

"They are our live savers! We are from CA and I always had a dream of owning an island home. Originally we went down because we thought we had a deal with a developer but that did not work. I called Carib connection and she came to the rescue and held our hand throughout the whole time we were their to help us find a home. She is very resourceful."

"My wife and I have recently worked extensively with Isel for our winter vacation home in Cabarete DR. She has been nothing short of AMAZING. Her work ethic and knowledge are second to none. She is always very prompt in replying to our questions and concerns. She narrowed down our wants and needs to prevent us looking at a lot of places that would not have worked for us. She has helped us find a property management team as well as many other extras that we didn't expect. She even took my wife and I to Surfers Beach just outside of Cabarete so My wife could stroke off one of her Bucket List activities, learning to surf. We can't say enough about Isel and how wonderful she and her team (Raul especially) made our experience in purchasing our future winter home!! A BIG THANK YOU ISEL!!!"
