Testimonials

Testimonials – 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.

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 am late writing this testimonial and I apologize to everyone that I haven’t written this sooner.  You may be looking for a real estate agent to help you buy property on Roatan and I highly recommend Wendy McLaughlin.  My wife and I live in Texas and our May, 2014 purchase of property on Roatan was our first international purchase.  I can’t say enough positive things about Wendy’s help with our purchase.  She emailed back and forth with me for over a year as we debated what we really wanted and the pros and cons, for us, of certain properties.  Wendy was always there with helpful advice and she was very balanced in her approach.  By that I mean that she didn’t try to judge our purchase possibilities for us, but presented all the properties in a fair manner.  She gave us plenty of information, worked hard to answer our questions, took us around the island when we had our list narrowed down, and helped us line up appropriate legal help when we needed it for the closing, which she and her broker attended.  Wendy was highly educated in the states and works for a well known and respected company, RE/MAX.  She’s totally fluent and communication was always a non-issue.  I can’t recommend her and RE/MAX highly enough to help with purchase of property on Roatan!—-Craig Brown


Looking to buy/sell property on the Bay Islands – specifically Utila? Julie Shigetomi is the best! As my real estate agent in selling my land on Utila, Julie worked very hard and efficiently to ensure the sale went smoothly. Julie always answered all my questions, and if she didn’t know the answer she would find out and get back to me right away. I live in the States and when I got to Utila, the deal went so smoothly I didn’t have to worry about a thing. I would highly recommend Julie and Re/Max Bay Islands.

“After being screwed over by another Real Estate company in Utila who had failed to properly register my Utila property Title Deeds and declined to resolve the problems they caused, I contacted Mark Smith who I knew of by reputation only. Mark was extremely helpful in analyzing the problems and explaining them to me. He formulated a plan of action which I approved, and he was able to solve the problems while I remained in Canada. When I returned to Utila he gave me all the necessary documentation which I had been trying to obtain for over a year. I don’t know what I would have done if Mark had not helped. We have been firm friends ever since.

He is the first and only Real Estate Agent I will be contacting if I ever decide to sell my Utila property.

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 & Wendy McLaughlin. I have dealt with a lot of Realtors/Realestate companies in the past and must say that Larry and Wendy are 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!
