Ben Vaughn - Costa Rica real estate broker/agent

Ben Vaughn – Costa Rica real estate Guy Extraordinaire.

“Guys in the Zone” is this blog. It is also the name of my company and I am a real estate agent in Costa Rica. I work with Blue Zone Realty, an excellent brokerage of properties in Costa Rica’s southern pacific zone. For our listings, click here.

I am Ben. I have lived in Costa Rica since 1999. I formed and ran a real estate company in Dominical for several years, and then went off on my own, forming Guys In The Zone Real Estate.

After some time, Rod “Tigre” Martin entered the scene. We worked together for a number of years and then decided to close our office due to some health concerns on my part. Over the years of working together, Rod & I have passed through many of life’s experiences. We have forged a friendship that goes beyond business. So, we’re good – for those of you that were wondering :). If you are the reading type, and have an interest in the lives of other people, I’ve got a rather fluid and lengthy version of my time here in Costa Rica. You can read it by clicking here.

During my off-time, I continued to keep a pulse on the market and to receive positive feedback from people, some of whom would tell me that they “read the whole thing”. I find this a bit hard to believe as there is a lot here, but I’ve heard it enough that it may actually be true.

We did a video Talk Show series that can still be seen in part on YouTube – Click here to view. I am interested in firing these back up. We’ll see…

The articles on this web site are a result of a shared passion for writing, and the great feedback that we get from our readers of how these articles and Talk Shows have helped them to make their investment in land here in Costa Rica’s southern zone. The Guys in the Zone blog continues on as a source of information for anyone interesting in knowing what life is like here in Costa Rica’s southern Pacific zone, and still with an emphasis on real estate, but also news and just life information.
