Roberto is a fully Licensed Realtor who works with all the United Country’s agents at the Coronado Office making sure we offer you the best possible service. Proud of his Panamanian roots, he was raised in Panama City until he left for the United States as a teenager, eventually graduating at Loyola University with a marketing and international business degree. His passion for travelling and learning from other cultures brought him to live in Venezuela, Spain, Sweden; and in the US, California, Hawaii, Georgia, Tennessee and Louisiana. He moved to the island of Maui to fulfill a life-long dream to learn to surf and a few years later ended up writing several children s books about surfing, ocean safety and skateboarding. His passion for surfing kept bringing back to his home country of Panama where he started to specialize in beach front and surf community properties. After noticing the boom in Panama’s real estate market, he invested with a group of previous clients and friends from California acquiring a right of possession, beach front hectare. In time, he was able to convert the beach front property into title land through a long and bureaucratic process. This experience helped him learn about the pitfalls of buying right of possession versus titled land. He is currently focusing on apartments, houses and land outside of Panama City in the beach communities between Punta Chame to Buenaventura. His exposure to various markets has served him to adapt to the ever changing demands of the real estate market, its clients and Panama’s idiosyncrasies. He is able to understand how challenging and daunting it can be to move to a foreign country and is the reason why his sole intent is to make that transition as carefree as possible for his clients. Roberto excels at listening and finding out what people are truly looking for in a property. He then sets out to find the most idyllic place for the clients, fulfilling their dreams of owning a property, house or condominium in Panama. He has been at the same office in Coronado for 10 years now and specializes in the beach and mountain areas near Coronado.
You may recognize him as his charisma has landed him in three separate episodes of House Hunters International. He also has produced a new environmental book in 2019 with the help of the Rotary Club of Coronado and other private donors. The book is meant to teach the next generation of Panamanians to take pride in the country by cleaning up their neighborhoods, schools and beaches. It is an amazing book that has been adopted by the Ministry of Education and the intention is to give it away to all the public schools throughout the country.
