Dennis J. Easters- I am originally from Tampa, Florida, but now live in Atenas, Costa Rica. I have always wanted to live outside the United States, but had ideas of the south of France or Spain. A family vacation to Costa Rica changed all that. After that first trip I was hooked. It was all I could think about. Now I am living my dream and loving every minute of it. I attended the University of South Florida, with studies in Accounting and Industrial Psychology. This has helped me immensely throughout the years in my business. In addition, I hold a real estate license in the state of Florida.
I have been involved in real estate investing for more than twelve years now. I specialized in restoration and renovation of historic homes in the Tampa Bay area. In addition, I built a portfolio of rental properties, all single family homes through out Tampa. This experience I bring with me to Costa Rica to apply in my development company, Pure Life Development. Real Estate is my passion. When I set a goal for myself, I go for it.
Gerardo Gonzalez-Porras- I am proud to introduce myself as the resident Tico ( Costa Rican) at Pure Life Development. Originally from the capital, San Jose, I have lived in the United States for the past 12 years. It was my dream for many years to learn the English language. This dream took me to Tampa, Florida where I studied at Florida Metropolitan University. I am now bi-lingual, speaking both English and Spanish. I have always worked in the hospitality industry, focusing on tourism, working one on one as a dance instructor, and managing a team to effectively and efficiently care for clientele from around the world. For the past 5 years, I have worked side by side with my business partner, Dennis J. Easters to learn about real estate. In addition, I am a licensed real estate agent in the state of Florida. I hope that my years of experience will help anyone coming to Costa Rica feel right at home.
Pure Life Development’s goal is to work with what nature has generously given and to preserve it as best we can, while allowing you to enjoy a rich experience at the same time. We always do our best to not over develop. Nature should always remain the “main attraction”.
Our objective is to take small parcels of land and turn them in to quaint communities, that fit in with there surroundings. We also will buy and build in existing, well know communities, that meet our stringent standards. Last but not least, we will renovate select properties that have that “special something”. With more than 12 years experience, you can rest assured; our products will be of the highest standard.
At Pure Life Development, we are interested in building “Green”. We will always use products that are available which are “Green”, recycled, or are energy efficient. That is how we plan to help keep Costa Rica just how it is, paradise, your paradise.
Because we know how difficult it can be to find “just the right place”, we offer a sanctuary in paradise. If you want a true Costa Rican experience, it will best be found off the beaten path, not in a all inclusive resort. We have select rental properties that will meet all your needs. Pequeno Paraiso, one of our properties which consist of a large two bedroom house with pool and rancho. Also on the same property is a two bedroom cottage.

This property is situated in a gated community, on one acre of land with breathtaking views of the central valley. The grounds are beautifully landscaped, with nature at your front door. Sit on your porch and watch the hummingbirds, butterflies, toucans, and other exotic species feed in the morning.
