He found a job as a real estate agent right away, and he obtained his CCCBR (real estate) license. He became a part owner in the real estate company Guys In The Zone and, over the next 6 years, navigated the complexities of Costa Rica real estate and the Spanish language. He then moved on to another prominent real estate company and even recorded an episode of House Hunters International “High Hopes on the Costa Ballena” in 2016.  Rod is also is a SUGEF registered Realtor in Costa Rica.

Rod joined the Dominical Property team in 2017. Inspired by his marketing and graphic design background, he enjoys bringing new listings to market. He also enjoys meeting new people looking to invest in property. When asked what he enjoys the most about real estate he said, “It’s pretty simple… my focus is on helping people. If I do a good job of that, I am successful.”
