We are writing to give our highest recommendation to Remax/Bay Islands. As American citizens, we were a bit unsure about how to transact a real estate purchase and sale in a foreign country, but my husband always wanted to own beachfront property in the Caribbean. It was a lifelong dream of his. I only wish we had found the amazing team at Remax/Bay Islands many years ago. But thankfully we found them when it was time to sell.
Our experience with this team, especially Doward Johnson and Jacky Castro, was top-notch in every way. Our broker stayed in constant touch with us, and Doward and Jacky were our eyes and ears on the ground there in Roatan, executing all of the legal and practical things necessary to close. They have a very thorough knowledge of the country and the Real Estate business on the Island. It was a remarkable experience.
But the most important thing of all is how honest, diligent, thorough, competent and trustworthy they were! They were honestly incredible.
I say to anyone looking to purchase property in another country, be very careful who you deal with. We are 100% happy with every bit of our experience, and of course, the final result as well. If you are looking to buy a home or property in Roatan, Honduras, do not look anywhere else! Go straight to Remax/Bay Islands and deal with the very best. There is no reason to do anything else. You will not be sorry.

I have been visiting Roatan for about 17 years, and purchased a property (beautiful) about 1997. I have dealt with 4 different realtors and am familiar with most of the brokers on Roatan. There are substantial differences between realtors, and I don’t want to dwell on negatives. Larry Schlesser and his staff are equal to the best Brokers and required standards in the US. I listed my property 4 times and the listing with Remax was painless, and profitable, to say the least. If you are looking, buying or selling, you WILL have problems with anyone other than Remax, as I found with the numerous serious problems with the other Brokers including the original way I held title, as Larry found, and fixed, such that I could sell the property. I highly recommend Larry and his staff even if you are looking for a rental, condo, or purchase. Should anyone wish to contact me direct to discuss my experience, Larry can furnish my phone # and/or e-mail address.
It is nice to be able to trust a person on the Island, not that others are crooks, but just not knowledgeable concerning a serious investment with your money. I DON’T WRITE MANY OF THESE, BUT I VOLUNTEERED TO THIS AFTER AN IMPRESSIVE AND SHORT CLOSE.THEY ARE SUCCESSFUL FOR THESE REASONS, AND I HAVE MONEY IN MY POCKET.
Please thank your staff and the attorney for their professionalism.

Highest recommendation for Larry Schlesser and this ReMax team. They really know their stuff. My family has bought and sold several properties on Roatan over the last two decades. And unlike other folks we dealt with in the past, Larry’s team is responsive, communicative, and solution oriented. When you’re dealing with long distances and language and rules that are new to you–that can-do attitude is invaluable. We were contending with a rather complicated deal and Larry went above and beyond to simplify it and get it done. Honest. Helpful. Friendly. Professional. I don’t know why you’d use anybody else.

The service we received from ReMax Western Sunsets agent Barbara Noel was exceptional! We could not have asked for a better Realtor. Her local market knowledge is invaluable and her relationships in the community allowed us to identify the location of the home we want to purchase. We very much appreciate all of the time you invested, along with your patience and professional courtesy. Barbara is a true professional and in a class by herself.

I have known Larry Schlesser since 2001 as a very capable and honest real estate broker. What separates Larry and his company from the competition is their integrity. I have purchased properties on Roatan through Larry and Roatan Real Estate and recommend them to anyone interested in a capable and honest broker. My future purchases will be through Roatan Real Estate.

Just a quick word about RE/MAX Bay Islands and especially Larry Schlesser. I have dealt with a lot of Realtors/Realestate companies in the past and must say that Larry is the best. They are very knowledgable and not pushy. They make you very comfortable in your Roatan experience. Their best attribute is their customer service skills is they don’t end after the transaction. He has helped me before,during and after the sale and continues to assist and answer any needs I have had about Roatan. I would recomend him to anyone seeking to buy or sell property/investments in Roatan as he has shown me an attention to detail and ethics rarely seen, even in the U.S. THANKS LARRY!
