This Canadian-born firm began operations in Costa Rica in 2014, when Melanie Engel and Dr. Michael Engel moved with their family to Flamingo Beach in the province of Guanacaste, Costa Rica.


During these years, Flamingo Beach Realty (FBR), has grown steadily and has consolidated as one of the best real estate options in the areas of Playa Flamingo, Conchal, and Tamarindo.


During its existence, FBR has brokered more than 140 properties. In the last year, FBR was directly involved in brokering over $76 USD million dollars, ranging from a one-bedroom $90,000US condo in Potrero to mulit-million dollar beachfront hotel in Sugar Beach.


Thanks to this constant growth, Flamingo Beach Realty strengthened its operations in Guanacaste, integrating new agents to its team, and currently has 7 agents of very high caliber.


The company's service offerings range from representing Buyers and Sellers in real estate transactions in residential and commercial properties, and in property management and planning adventure tours.


Passion in What We Do


For those who have had the opportunity to work with Flamingo Beach Realty, they know that the spirit of service of those who work in the company is a very important factor, since they always have the client as the center of all their activities.

From their own experience, the Engels know that relocating, investing, and buying a home in a foreign country comes with its own set of complexities, which is why they strive to make the process as easy and satisfying as possible for their clients.


Melanie and her team are well known for going the an extra mile and providing a personal touch to the service offered to each customer. Besides adding passion to each project, the firm is endorsed by the experience of Mrs. Engel - who is the heart of the company - with over 30 years experience in running her own businesses, and over 4 years of business experience in the Costa Rican real estate market.



In 2019, misleading the information has been circulated about Mrs. Melanie Engel by the Costa Rica Global Association of Realtors (CRGAR), in which it is pointed out that Mrs. Engel committed serious acts against the professional ethics of real estate, and that’s why the CRGAR has sanctioned it. For this reason, Flamingo Beach Realty wishes to clarify to its clients, strategic allies and the general public:
· In Costa Rica, the exercise of Real Estate is not regulated by any state entity; there is no legislation on this subject.
· In order to work as a real estate broker, it is not necessary to belong to any Chamber or Association since
in the absence of regulation, they are not binding.
· CRGAR is a private entity with voluntary affiliation. As of December 2020, this private entity failed to comply with legal regulations in Costa Rica and was not an active legal entity.   The decisions are taken by the CRGAR concern only at internal level, therefore the alleged sanctions imposed on Mrs. Engel does not have any legal implications, nor do they affect her professional practice, nor do they affect the work of Flamingo Beach Realty.

· As of today, Melanie Engel and her team of lawyers is unaware of the details of the alleged sanctions imposed by the CRGAR, as they have been denied access to the file for assessment, analysis and review as it has been made confidential even for her.
· Mrs. Engel and the members of Flamingo Beach Realty are respectful of national and international laws and have high moral and ethical values.
