What is the Listing Process?
We know these decisions take time. We’re ready when you are!
Once you’ve decided to work with us, we will meet to go over the final listing details: a comprehensive description of your home, property, or business, professional photography, possibly a 3-D tour (inside imaging), staging (when necessary), and of course, a well-positioned marketing plan.
Our Team is a member in good standing with the Roatan Real Estate Association and the National Association of Realtors, adhering to a Code of Ethics and Standard of Practice.
We have a solid reputation for professional etiquette and broker reciprocity with all members-of the Roatan Real Estate Association to ensure our clients’ listing gets maximum local exposure with other brokers and agents. Although, we like to share [insert bragging rights] that we often sell our own listings.
If you have further questions, we’re happy to meet online or-in-person; we look forward to hearing from you contact us.

What is the Closing Process?
A lawyer draws up a document called a “Honduran Protocol” transferring ownership and possession of the property from the Seller to the Purchaser. Both parties sign the document the balance of the purchase price transfers to the Seller. The Purchaser now has title to the property.
To complete this transaction Seller and Purchaser must return to the island to sign the document in person. Otherwise, a common alternative is to have a limited power of attorney (POA) created by the party unable to be present (Seller or Purchaser), appointing someone else to close on your behalf and accept title in your name. Our team can assist if required.
The lawyer submits the document to the public land titles registry. The registry records the sale and issues the new title (in the Purchaser’s name) approximately 9-12 months later. Notification is sent to the Purchaser when the document is ready to be picked up. Or we can forward it to you via international courier.
