Andrew Rhee

I grew up in Greenwich, Connecticut and graduated from Phillips Exeter Academy, Wesleyan University and New York University School of Law. After working briefly as a lawyer in Manhattan, I worked in finance in New York and Miami. I have extensive real estate investment experience in Costa Rica and in the United States. I am a licensed Realtor in Nevada and am a Certified Resort and Second Home Specialist and Senior Real Estate Specialist.

My wife, Lisa, and I lived in Mal Pais from 2004-2013 and continue to spend many months in the area. We own a hotel and ranch, Star Mountain Jungle Lodge, and horse tour company in the area. Our 9 year-old daughter and 5 year-old son were born in Costa Rica and adored living between the jungle and the beach. A reformed surfer, I now enjoy swimming, hiking and the occasional round of golf.

I was featured in an Animal Planet production, “Switching Gears”, which was a series of short interviews with people who chose to leave behind the “civilized” world to opt for a lifestyle more deeply steeped in nature.

Andrew speaks English, Spanish and French.

Stephanie Low

Stephanie grew up in a small town in northern Illinois, and attended University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, where she earned a Bachelor of Arts. Eager for a new adventure, she moved to Denver, Colorado where she worked in the restaurant business for several years, and later attended & graduated from University of Denver, Sturm College of Law.

She returned to Illinois to pursue her legal career, where she started working at a law firm on the South Side of Chicago. There she worked with a predominantly Mexican, immigrant community. Marriage and 2 kids spurred a family migration to the western suburbs of Chicago. Stephanie was a partner in a law firm for 10 years, and focused on transactional law. She worked hand-in-hand with local realtors, and performed over 2,000 residential real estate transactions.

In recent years, Stephanie travelled to the Nicoya peninsula several times to assist a colleague with a local dog rescue. She adopted a Costa Rican fur baby, and took her home to the ‘burbs. With each visit to the Peninsula, her love for the area and desire to become a permanent member of the community grew. Within six short months after her last visit, she sold the house and all of the family’s personal belongings. They packed their clothes, loaded up their 4 rescue dogs, and took the leap to the jungle!

Stephanie speaks Spanish and English.
