About Me


About me, Orrin Brightman

Orrin BrightmanThanks for visiting I’m happy you’re here, so here’s a little more about me. I have over a decade of travel and living experience in the Papagayo area of Costa Rica. My wife and I liked it so much that we eventually purchased property, designed and built a custom villa, and moved here permanently to live the “Pura Vida” lifestyle – as one so beautifully described it, “…the sun, the sand, and a drink in my hand.”

After a successful career in the pharmaceutical industry overseeing large departments and budgets in both domestic and international clinical trial operations, I and my educator wife, Betsy, decided to move permanently to the Gold Coast of Costa Rica. Our decision was made after many years of researching the social, political, economic and compelling lifestyle aspects of Costa Rica. I have  joined the prestigious and highly successful RE/MAX Tres Amigos Costa Rica team in Guanacaste with extensive experience in buying, selling, designing and constructing luxury homes, in both the Northeast sector of the U.S. and in Costa Rica.

Orrin & Betsy BrightmanMy wife and I share our life with our two beloved dogs; Chloe, a miniature schnauzer rescued in their former home city of Philadelphia and Maria, a Costa Rican rescue who grew up on the construction site of the our new home. Taking the dogs to the beach is a favorite pastime or ours as is frequenting the numerous beach restaurants in the area. Our Playa Hermosa villa reflects our interest and appreciation of architecture and unique interior design. Costa Rica affords a plethora of subjects for my hobby of photography. Perhaps the best activity of all is enjoying the magnificent sunsets with friends while appreciating a glass of fine wine! Each evening offers a new variation of the most beautiful artwork ever created! This is truly paradise!

I want to share my love of this unique paradise with other like-minded clientele and help them successfully navigate the Costa Rica real estate market. My goal is to provide you with the best Costa Rica real estate professional services to help you own your dream home!
