Our Promise

Our Uvita Property Management Team is committed to hiring the best employees based on our Uvita Property Management services’ following characteristics.

Integrity

Our employees are honest and constantly work to make the right decisions. We always do what is right and what is fair to the customers. We manage homeowner’s homes, finances, credit card numbers, assets, and other valuable items.

Customers trust us based on our performance. We provide honest feedback – not always feedback homeowners want to hear. It is the foundation of our company.

Commitment

All of Osa Property Management employees are committed to our homeowners. Our employees are committed to getting the job done. They are committed to ensuring the homeowners and visitors have a wonderful experience in Costa Rica.

Problem Solvers

We never point out a problem or an issue. We always immediately follow it up with the recommended ‘next steps.’

Experience

We like to hire employees with experience in several industries to provide the best cross-functional solution to our homeowners. We have employees with experience in:

  • Launching and operating a multi-national company in a new country.
  • Working at an investment bank
  • Local real estate experience
  • Working at an ASADA to know the laws and regulations of water concessions
  • Building homes
  • Repair work including construction, painting, electrical and plumbing
  • Hospitality experience at exclusive resorts
  •  Trip planning, customer interaction, traveling

Integrity

Uvita Property Management Team members perform over 95% of all work performed on our homeowner customers’ homes. The advantages of this include:

  • Accountability. When a maintenance or routine job must be performed on your property, we will know and inform the homeowner when the work is completed. We don’t have to wait to hear back from a 3rd party vendor, which can be very time-consuming.
  • Warranty issues. If we perform the work, and an issue arises due to our work, we will cover the cost.
  • Trusted people in and around your home. It can be very nerve-wracking to have strangers in your home – and that uneasiness only intensifies when the home is in another country. We never allow 3rd party members into your home without an escort (or unless ordered by the homeowner). Since we perform most of the repairs and work on the homes we manage, we can assure you that nothing will be broken, stolen, or missing from your home by our employees.
