Patrick King was born and raised on Vancouver Island Canada. It was here that he developed a love for the ocean and surfing and the desire to travel abroad. It was 1992 only a year out of high school and the thought of a winter surfing adventure throughout Central America with no wetsuit sounded fantastic, it would be a trip that would change the course of his life. The surf that year was great and he decided to come back in 1993 like so many do and settled into the small coastal village of Esterillos Oeste. In order to learn the language he decided he would get a job. It was here in the bar restaurant know as el Barrilito he would meet his future wife who at that time ran the kitchen in the bar that was owned by her aunt and uncle. The rest as they say is history.
Fast forward almost twenty year’s and Patrick and his wife are still together only now they have two boy’s aged eleven and thirteen that can been seen out enjoying the same waves with their dad, a lifestyle Patrick had always dreamed of sharing with his kid’s.
Patrick got his start in Costa Rica real estate around the Esterillos area in his early twenties, always happy to show the new people to the area the great deals that were on offer at that time. In the late 90’s he moved to Malpais where he built a bar and restaurant and continued to sell real estate in that area until 2003 when they accepted an offer on the Restaurant and moved back to Esterillos just in time for the boy’s to start school in mom’s home town. In 2007 he brokered a beautiful farm just off the highway and down the road from playa Bejuco which has now become the residential community know as Ranchos Las Lomas. In 2008 Patrick accepted an offer to be the on site manager and sales agent of the project and continues to work there on a daily basis as well as showing other affordable real estate in the surrounding area.
Patrick is currently living in Esterillos and has great knowledge of affordable properties in the central pacific.
