CENTURY 21 Ballena Properties Real Estate Team
Marcel is the Broker/Owner of CENTURY 21 Ballena Properties and has lived in the Ojochal area since 1999. Marcel is originally from the Netherlands where he studied Business and Commerce. From there he went on to serve his country in the Royal Dutch Army and upon the completion of a 6 year term he joined Lombard International Assurance in Luxembourg as an account executive.
During a vacation to Costa Rica far from the everyday life of suits, ties and business meetings he discovered an energy he could not shake. This inspired him to return to Costa Rica and make the southern coast his new home. During the years he has managed the Hotel Posada in Playa Tortuga near Ojochal and then went on to work in sales and marketing with the Ventana Del Pacífico development company. He spent the next eight years learning the ins and outs of the real estate sales and land development business. During his time there he also managed their guest house and hosted the guided property tours introducing 100's of new clients to the beauty of the Ballena Coast.
Marcel has accumulated a huge amount of experience during those years which he now uses daily in the management of his own real estate group. His knowledge of the area, the developments and the available properties is vital to the success of this business. Communication has never been a challenge at the office as Marcel also speaks five languages, which is why the office has such a diverse client base of both sellers and buyers. Call Marcel to discover the Costa Rican "Pura Vida" lifestyle.

Aarón is a bilingual Costa Rican native who expresses gratitude every day for being fortunate enough to have been born and raised in a country that so many dream to one day call their home.
At the age of five it was already clear to Aarón’s family and friends that Aarón was destined to become an entrepreneur as he was already determined to teach himself English, at such a young age, in order to more clearly communicate his love and enthusiasm for his country to anyone who would listen. Learning English has helped Aarón to provide outstanding public relations and customer service assistance throughout his many years of working in the hotel industry as well as for his CENTURY 21 clientele.
Becoming a part of the CENTURY 21 Ballena Properties Team has truly been a dream come true for Aarón and it is his pleasure to assist others in achieving their goals and dreams of one day buying a home or investing in property here in this amazing and unique country of his.
As a 20 year resident of the South Pacific zone, Dan has the most intimate knowledge and experience of this region.
Coming from various backgrounds and living in different countries, Dan has the ability to communicate in many languages. After business and marketing graduation he launched his career on the outskirts of Toronto where he began in home remodeling. This has eventually led into home design and construction that was further expanded into Costa Rica. His knowledge of the field and excellent negotiation skills have taken him across all the fields in the construction department. From simple renos to delicate government jobs to managing multi million dollar projects, he treats all levels of his customers with the same respect.
It is thanks to his exceptionally loyal clientele, personal referrals and repeat business that formed the foundation of his career. After the sale of his hotel he found himself in the right time and place to expand further. It is this, along with his passion for the housing industry that led Dan into real estate and joining the C21 team.
Axel is a Costa Rican who is passionate about the development and protection of his country in areas such as biodiversity, tourism and real state.
Tourism was one of the first gates that provided him with experience in hospitality management in different countries. After a 4 year journey to Europe, Mexico and the Unites States, he decided to return to his home country, Costa Rica to seek for opportunities in the South Pacific Region because that is where most of the prestigious and sustainable hospitality projects are located. Axel has been involved in the hospitality industry for 5 years since his return. This journey made him gain experience in customer service which has proven very helpful in his new real estate career.
The desire of helping others to build their dreams is one of the most important goals in his live. For this reason, being part of Century 21 Ballena Properties is one of the first steps to materialize that goal as well as to learn how to promote sustainable development taking care of the biodiversity in this beautiful country.
