About Scott Bowers

I am a naturalized citizen of Costa Rica. I first arrived (from the U.S.) in 2001 to broker a deal that sold one of the country’s premier private universities to a U.S. publicly-held education company. Since 2004 I’ve arranged eco-intensive Costa Rica vacation tours to locations throughout the country, as well as Nicaragua, Panama and Colombia. In addition to serving as an agent with the Coldwell Banker Dominical Realty team since 2015, I offer Expat Consulting and conduct guided Expat Tours.

What customers think

quote quote We had little time but we knew what we were looking for. Scott found and showed us a few properties that were within the requirements. Within days we put down the offer and bought the property. Scott helped us with the complicated process of buying in a foreign country. Thanks to him the process was smooth and pretty fast. After we took possession there was a period of several months before we were able to really take possession of the property. We needed time to take care of things from home in Canada. Scott took care of the property by keeping an eye on it and organizing basic maintenance – cutting the grass, dealing with the mud-slide blocking the driveway, etc. We are immensely grateful for his service, which went way beyond his duty as an agent.

11/02/2024 Costa Rica Buyer’s Agent versus Seller’s Agent

After having spent a few years working as a real estate agent in Costa Rica's southern zone, I've started to notice something important. And that is that most agents, especially beach-focused agents, tend to gravitate more towards being seller's agents than Costa Rica buyer's agents.The name of the game for success in real estate in the ultra-competitive beach market is listing...
