Having lived and traveled all over the United States, from Newport Beach California, to Boca Raton Florida, I felt it was time for a change. I first came to Costa Rica in 1999 and knew the moment I got here that this is where I would spend the rest of my life. I only had to sell my business, and off to paradise I went. I have been very fortunate to have been able to associate myself with some of the best people in the Costa Rica real estate business, and they have all become my very good friends.
We make a great team. Please read the bios of all of our associates, and you will see why we became Number One.
We are committed to helping you obtain your "Little Piece of Paradise"

My name is Nadene Tipper, My husband, Roland, and I were on our honeymoon in 2002 when we discovered Costa Rica for the first time. From then on, we made life-changing decisions that eventually allowed us to move from Calgary, Alberta, Canada to Costa Rica in 2008.
We've never looked back!
We enjoy traveling the world although Costa Rica is now home. Our family has a wonderful place to come and visit and get to see why we love the Costa Rican people and this beautiful country so much!
We've both received our Real Estate Certification through the Costa Rica Global Association of Realtors (CRGAR). We're also affiliated with the National Association of Realtors (NAR) and ICREA. I'm currently the Secretary on the Board of Directors for CRGAR and that position keeps me in the loop of what's happening around the country.
Working with RE/MAX Los Tres Amigos has been a great business opportunity for us. The expertise of Mike Simons and the rest of the team together with our love of the industry puts us in a perfect position to help you find your new home, getaway or investment in our little piece of paradise.
Hi my name is Rhett Schubert. Yes my mother was a “Gone With the Wind” fanatic. Hence, the name. I was raised in Arizona, graduated from Arizona State University in 2000 and worked as a commercial real estate analyst in the Valuation and Advisory Services department of CB Richard Ellis for five and a half years prior to relocating to Costa Rica in 2006. After growing tired of Corporate America, I knew I wanted a change, and when the opportunity arrived to work with a developer in Playas del Coco, Guanacaste, Costa Rica, I jumped at it and have never looked back.
I have now been happily involved in real estate in Costa Rica for the past five years and I live here full-time. As your agent you can expect from me honesty and integrity. I have a wealth of real estate knowledge, as well as an understanding of the ins-and-outs of living in Costa Rica as a foreigner. It's my pleasure to help you find your piece paradise.
Although I was born in the chilly Northern lands of Montreal, Canada, I always had the dream of someday living in a warm tropical climate, full of sunshine, smiling people, and inviting beaches. After experiencing several Latin countries in my youth, it was the "Rich Coast" that won my heart. I never left! I am proud to say that Costa Rica has been my home for the past 25 years. Both of my wonderful children were born here.
For much of my career I was in the hotel business. I worked both as a general manager and in opening luxury hotel venues. My experience during these years in hospitality has provided me with a fluency in English and Spanish to accompany my native French.
I love sailing, hanging with friends, traveling and playing tennis.
I am excited at this juncture of my life to be embarking on a new adventure in the world of hospitality, namely, finding people places to call home, or start a business, or realize their own dream. I have had the good fortune of teaming with the number one real estate office in Costa Rica, Remax Tres Amigos. I will continue to live here in beautiful Guanacaste and I welcome the opportunity to share with you my local knowledge and expertise in the real estate markets.
Hello, my name is Lisa and I am originally from New York City. After spending 20 years riding the subway day after day from my Brooklyn home to my stressful job in Manhattan, I decided I wanted more out of life. So in 2004, I took off and never looked back.
My plan? I was headed to California, to create a more active lifestyle near the beach. But first, I took my dive masters course in Costa Rica. At the end of the course, I was offered a job at the dive shop and, on a whim, I took it. My work attire went from business suits and uncomfortable high-heels to bikinis, board shorts, and flip-flops. And my ‘office’ was underwater! It was a dream come true. In the nine years since, I have become a licensed member of the Costa Rican Global Association of Realtors, own and operate a successful sport fishing business and was rehired back as a consultant at my NYC job which recently came to a conclusion.
Landing in Costa Rica has changed my life in ways that were once unimaginable, and I am passionate about using my business and entrepreneurial background to tailor a version of that dream for you. What better way than to help you find your dream home here, in paradise. Perhaps you too are looking for a lifestyle with great weather, beautiful nature, good people, and a stress-less life? No matter what your plan is for fitting Costa Rica into your life, I can make it happen for you.
I have worked as an assistant with RE/MAX Los Tres Amigos for almost 7 years. RE/MAX has provided me with a great opportunity to have a better life and do things that I like such as meet more people, learn different customs, and acquire new professional skills.
I love to visit different places with natural and incredible views and exchange cultures with new and exciting people. I live in Playas del Coco. It's a small town in the Guanacaste province, with many places to have something to eat, dance, stores, great mountains, trees and animals. People are friendly, helpful and ready to offer a friendly hand if you need some help.
What I love most about my country: I want everybody, Costa Ricans and tourists, to know about freedom and to enjoy the freedom in Costa Rica.
Where there is a 'Tico' there is Freedom.
Orrin Brightman has over a decade of travel and living experience in the Papagayo area of Costa Rica. He and his wife liked it so much that they eventually purchased property, designed and built a custom villa, and moved here permanently to live the “Pura Vida” lifestyle – as one so beautifully described it, “...the sun, the sand, and a drink in my hand.”
After a successful career in the pharmaceutical industry overseeing large departments and budgets in both domestic and international clinical trial operations, Orrin and his educator wife Betsy decided to move permanently to the Gold Coast of Costa Rica. Their decision was made after many years of researching the social, political, economic and compelling lifestyle aspects of Costa Rica. Orrin has joined the prestigious and highly successful RE/MAX Tres Amigos Costa Rica team in Guanacaste with extensive experience in buying, selling, designing and constructing luxury homes, in both the Northeast sector of the U.S. and in Costa Rica.
He and his wife share their life with their two beloved dogs; Chloe, a miniature schnauzer rescued in their former home city of Philadelphia and Maria, a Costa Rican rescue who grew up on the construction site of the their new home. Taking the dogs to the beach is a favorite pastime as is frequenting the numerous beach restaurants in the area. Their Playa Hermosa villa reflects their interest and appreciation of architecture and unique interior design. Costa Rica affords a plethora of subjects for Orrin's hobby of photography. Perhaps the best activity of all is enjoying the magnificent sunsets with friends while appreciating a glass of fine wine! Each evening offers a new variation of the most beautiful artwork ever created! This is truly paradise!
Orrin wants to share his love of this unique paradise with other likeminded clientele and help them successfully navigate the Costa Rican real estate market. Orrin’s goal is to provide the best professional service to help you own your Costa Rican dream home!
