Percentage wise most of the people that contact me regarding real estate are women and many of them are looking to get a womans perspective on buying property and living here.
So, my wife came out with this great idea to shoot a video series that gives a womans perspective on Ambergris Caye. What does she like about living here? Why did she choose Belize? What are the pros and cons of living on an island in the Caribbean?
Over the course of this series Steph will answer all of these questions and many more. If you have any that you'd like to ask her feel free to email me and I'll have her tape her reply and upload it to YouTube.
Thanks and I hope you enjoy this series!

The following is an undedited testimonial from another happy client who now owns their own slice of paradise here in Ambergris Caye, Belize. Congrats to them and we here at RE/MAX Island Real Estate want to wish them many years of happiness and memories......
""Our dream had always been to retire somewhere exotic, warm and friendly. We had never heard of Belize until we saw a “House Hunters International” program on TV.
Ironically weeks later my brother-in-law sent us a picture of himself, sitting on the edge of a pier, surrounded with turquoise blue water, in San Pedro, Belize. It looked liked paradise and my first thought was....it’s not real.
Researching on the internet, lead us to the International Living magazine which rated Belize as one of the best places to retire. They listed the following pluses, climate, housing costs, English speaking, stable government and how friendly the Belizean people are.
Our home is in Nanaimo on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada. We love Vancouver Island, and plan to return every summer to spend time with our nine grandchildren and kids, exploring the Gulf Islands in our sailboat.
Before we purchased property in Ambergris Caye we spent many years looking for the place we wanted to retire or at least spend our winter months. We travelled to Mexico, Greece, Italy, France, Spain, Hawaii, and had a list of additional places to look.
San Pedro was on the list for December. Two days after arriving in San Pedro we were hooked. The Island was beautiful and so were the people. We didn’t feel alone, or isolated and felt very safe.
RE/MAX Island Real Estate happened to be next door to our hotel and we just decided to drop in for some information. Not only did we find out that we could purchase property at a reasonable price but that we had clear title on our property.
We were living an episode of House Hunters international, where you chose from three properties with Dennis who actually aired an episode on San Pedro. He was able to help us understand how the purchase process worked in Belize, what we needed to do and how we could do it. He was able to answer all our questions and concerns about owning property in a foreign country and even guided us through each step.
We purchased our piece of paradise and made our dream come true.
We would like to thank our realtor, Dennis Kay II and his co-worker Jeff Bella for not only going beyond the call of duty but giving us the courage and support to help our dreams come true!!

South Ambergris Caye Subidivision - Location Video.
Years of travel and planning have gone into creating the foundations of this exciting new subdivision to make sure it has all of the qualities necessary to become Ambergris Caye's premier neighborhood.
Modeled after very successful developments in the Florida Keys, the Bahamas, the Caymans other Caribbean islands, the South Ambergris Caye Subdivision has everything in place to take Ambergris Caye to the next level on the international scene.
In this video we fly over the reef and south Ambergris Caye where we can clearly see the subdivision with its 8 canal facing roads and and the prime location next to water and sewer services which will enable it to apply for LEED certification and an eco-friendly neighborhood.
More videos to come as progress and development takes place so check back often.
