Bill Campbell has lived full time in Ojochal for the past two years and has been coming to Costa Rica for the last five years. Originally from Calgary, Canada, Bills background was mostly in the construction industry. This has proven to be invaluable to clients when finding the right home to buy or build. Before joining Century 21, Bill was a successful real estate sales associate with another brokerage in the Southern Zone. In Bill's words "What we have here is a 'community' that comes gift wrapped in the beautiful surroundings of jungle, mountains, and beaches."
One of the first things he asks prospective buyers who are wanting to relocate to Costa Rica is "Do you love it here?" Living in the Southern Zone of Costa Rica is not for everybody, but of those that have made their home here do have a common denominator, they all love living here. Anyone coming here and expecting to find all of the trappings of life in North American will surely be disappointed. The tranquility and the celebration of PURA VIDA (The Good Life in Spanish) are unlike any other. Bill has stated many times over "Where else can you live where perfect strangers smile and shake your hand on a daily basis, and your arm gets sore from waving at your neighbors and villagers to and from your house?"
Bill’s arrival and adventurous trip to get here is unique. With his partner Rita and after 5 years and numerous vacations to Costa Rica, the decision to move to paradise was made. The true story reads like this, “We packed up all our belongings in the back of the truck and drove from Calgary Alberta, Canada through the USA and all the way down through Central America. It was 13 days of travel and an experience that was not for the faint at heart. Yet one of our favourite memories was arriving at the Costa Rica border. After that long trip we were greeted by an immigration agent who smiled, extended his hand and welcomed us with a Pura Vida. We knew that we were home.”
Bill truly enjoys helping others to discover their own piece of paradise and would be more than happy to share what he has discovered to all that come to this part of the world. Bill has had great success in real estate here and throughout that time has made quite a few friends during the process of sales; they are all now his neighbors. Come on down!
