Michael Engel Co-owner and Agent


Dr. Michael is a retired chiropractor.  He and his wife Melanie came to Costa Rica on a family mission trip back in 2014 and decided then to make Costa Rica their home.  His life work has been in helping people and he has transferred this passion into real estate.  He finds much joy in helping clients find the perfect dream home in paradise - be it a vacation home, a vacation rental, an investment property, or a place to call home.  He has travelled extensively throughout the area and has visited many of the properties for sale.  He has a passion for the outdoors, for fishing, for cooking, and for his family.  In his spare time you will find him walking the beaches with his dogs, picking shells and sea glass with his daughter, playing ball with his 3 boys, or with a mask on looking for fish in the ocean!
