Roberto is a fully Licensed Realtor who works with all the United Country’s agents at the Coronado Office making sure we offer you the best possible service. Proud of his Panamanian roots, he was raised in Panama City until he left for the United States as a teenager, eventually graduating at Loyola University with a marketing and international business degree. His passion for traveling and learning from other cultures brought him to live in Venezuela, Spain, Sweden; and in the US, California, Hawaii, Georgia, Tennessee, and Louisiana. He moved to the island of Maui to fulfill a life-long dream to learn to surf and a few years later ended up writing several children s books about surfing, ocean safety, and skateboarding. His passion for surfing kept bringing back to his home country of Panama where together with his wife they lead surf and yoga expeditions. After noticing the boom in Panama’s real estate market, he invested with a group of previous clients and friends from his surf expeditions acquiring a right of possession, beachfront hectare. In time, he was able to convert the beachfront property into title land through a long and bureaucratic process. He is currently starting the process to develop it into a community for executives and professionals who enjoy surfing with their families. His exposure to various markets has served him to adapt to the ever-changing demands of the real estate market, its clients and Panama’s idiosyncrasies. He is able to understand how challenging and daunting it can be to move to a foreign country and is the reason why his sole intent is to make that transition as carefree as possible for his clients. Roberto excels at listening and finding out what people are truly looking for in a property. He then sets out to find the most idyllic place for the clients, fulfilling their dreams of owning a property, house or condominium in Panama.
I was standing on the end of the dock overlooking a tropical sunrise with my new clients as we waited for the boat that would take us to see some homes for sale on neighboring islands. A golden radiance was spreading over the sea through the mist covering the distant islands. As we started out across the glassy waters, we spotted two dolphins rolling lazily on the surface. I could not help but marvel at my good fortune to be able to be in such a wonderful environment and to be able to do something I love so much. This is so much more than just a career choice for me. It is the realization of a personal dream to be able to live in a warm, friendly, beautiful place and help others achieve their life dreams. As a Real Estate Broker in Bocas del Toro, Panama, it is my goal to help people discover the possibilities of a new home or business on a tropical island in the Caribbean. I get to spend my time researching and finding properties and then showing them to clients from all over the world who are in search of finding their own personal paradise. Understandably, many people find that being in a totally new environment and dealing with what are too often confusing regulations and procedures can be stressful. Because I have over 15 years of experience here, I can help navigate these unknown waters and take the stress out of the processes of purchasing a new home in an unfamiliar territory. As I reflect on the many success stories in my past and the number of new friends I have found during my years of service in this industry, I can only count my blessings and look forward to the days ahead and the friends I have not yet met. I welcome all to share the excitement of a dream made possible with the expertise and guidance I can provide.

If owning property in Bocas, whether as an investment, vacation home, or permanent place to retire, you need to feel confident in the information you are given.
