Your Dedicated REALTOR
Managing Broker, Tres Amigos Realty Group
There are aspects of real estate sales that seem pretty simple, as well as many elements of a smooth sales transaction. However, these can also be very complicated and daunting in Costa Rica (different laws, different processes, Spanish language, banking considerations, etc.). Now that I have been successfully selling real estate in Guanacaste for over 15 years, I am happy to use my knowledge and expertise to ensure your investment is as solid and trouble-free as possible. I am a full-time legal resident of Costa Rica with permanent status. I am a licensed Realtor through the Costa Rica Global Association of Realtors and a past Board Member of same. In addition, I am also an international affiliate of NAR . I am also a member of the “International Consortium of Real Estate Associations”. In an effort to help more buyers from the United States achieve the dream of owning property in Costa Rica, I have completed the and hold the designation of CLHMS (Certified Luxury Home Marketing Specialist) CIPS (Cerifired International Property Specialist) IRES (International Real Estate Specialist) SDIRA (Self Directed Individual Retirement Account) RSPS (Resort and Secondo Home Property Specialist) and ACP (Accredited Commercial Professional)
The photo above was taken on Playa Hermosa Beach one late afternoon while I was taking a walk and enjoying the great sunset. This little fellow (a Coatimundi) started following me, so I stopped and shared my banana with him. I first came to Costa Rica in December 1999 and fell in love with this beautiful country, its warm people and easy lifestyle. Before moving here permanently, I traveled back and forth to Costa Rica every opportunity I had. I finally decided back in 2001 to take the leap and purchase my first property. I have never looked back. Then, in early 2007, on another trip back to my beloved second home country, I found another property that I just had to have. I ended up buying it and moving here to paradise for good. It has been over thirteen years now and I do not regret it one bit, I love living in Costa Rica.
Join me in PARADISE and enjoy the same great afternoons, clear blue skies, tropical breezes, and of course that "PURA VIDA" lifestyle.
The relationship between a home buyer or seller and their agent is based on trust, shared goals and understanding. I strive to continually improve and to do this I listen and take the needs and wants into consideration.

Hello there! I'm Julia Skibinska, I was born and raised in the suburbs of Chicago. In 2005, my life took an exciting turn when I first set foot in Costa Rica. Its lush rainforests, stunning beaches, and vibrant culture instantly captured my heart. From that moment on, I found myself returning to this enchanting country every summer.
The more time I spent in Costa Rica, the more I realized that I wanted to make this tropical paradise my permanent home. In 2018, I decided to take a bold step towards realizing my dream. I bid farewell to my job as a librarian and embarked on a new adventure.
With a desire to help others discover the magic of Costa Rica and to follow my newfound passion for real estate, I obtained my Illinois Real Estate License in 2018. The world of real estate felt like the perfect platform to introduce people to the breathtaking beauty and opportunities this country has to offer.
The year 2019 was a defining one in my life. Armed with a few suitcases filled mainly with books, I made the courageous move to Costa Rica with my husband. This was the moment my dream became a reality.
I took my journey a step further by becoming a licensed member of the Costa Rican Global Association of Realtors and the National Association of Realtors. This marked a significant milestone in my career and an opportunity to connect people with their own Costa Rican dreams.
Moving to Costa Rica has been everything I could have hoped for, and more. It's a dream come true, and I wake up every day excited to explore and share the immaculate beauty of this country with my clients. From stunning beachfront properties to ocean view lots, Costa Rica offers something for everyone.
In between my work as a realtor, I believe in finding that perfect balance between professional fulfillment and personal enrichment. Costa Rica is a playground for nature enthusiasts, and I take full advantage of it. I enjoy spending my weekends on a boat, hiking in the mountains, lounging on the beach , or tending to my garden. I also enjoy the company of my four incredible rescues, two scruffy pups and two cats. One of my other passions is contributing to the community that has welcomed me with open arms. Whether it's participating in environmental conservation efforts or helping animals in need,I believe in giving back and making a positive impact.
I'm here to tell you that age and experience are no barriers when it comes to pursuing your dreams and finding happiness. So, whether you're seeking your dream home, an investment opportunity, or simply a slice of Costa Rican paradise, I'm here to guide you every step of the way. Let's make your dreams of living in Costa Rica a reality!
