Olga M. Araya and Costa Rica Luxury Lifestyle, LLC
Olga Araya is one of the most knowledgeable and respected real estate agents in her home country of Costa Rica, where she specializes in high-end luxury homes and rental properties. As the CEO and founder of Costa Rica Luxury Lifestyles, LLC., Olga provides specialty VIP concierge services for her clients, including tours and recreational activities, wedding planning and world-class catering with a variety of traditional and innovative local and international foods, desserts and pastries, including authentic Kosher food preparations. Olga and her Cost Rica Luxury Lifestyle team also provide their clients a sophisticated array of business and professional services involving luxury property sales, vacation home and condominium sales and rentals, as well as customized architectural design and contracting for local property development and construction.
Olga began her professional career as a computer software and hardware engineer in the high-tech industry working for Intel; she later moved to the Dominican Republic to run the Logistic and Administrative Division of a manufacturing complex for the multinational company Levi jeans. Her responsibilities included managing the high-profile public relations accounts and providing logistical support to the other Levi company divisions throughout the region including Mexico, Guatemala, North Carolina and Los Angeles.
Seeking a life change from a high pressure 7-day work week environment, Olga began to explore real estate as an alternative option to be able to spend more time with her young children. After Olga made her first condominium sale for $2.3 million in 2009, she never looked back. Olga also worked with a vacation rental company at Los Suenos, the high-end luxury market in Costa Rica’s Central Pacific Coast. With time Olga expanded her work to include other regions such as Guanacaste (North Pacific), Manuel Antonio, Dominical and Uvita (South Pacific). After 7 years of working in real estate and vacation rentals and cultivating a strong network of trusted professionals, Olga felt it was time to open her own business and Costa Rica Luxury Lifestyle, LLC was born. She now divides her time between Los Angeles and Costa Rica and manages her business quite successfully.
Olga’s dedication in providing superior customer service to all her prospects has created an ever-growing network of satisfied clients and consistently high customer reviews. Olga enjoys helping her clients plan their dream vacation and to buy, rent or build their own homes in Costa Rica. She loves sharing the beauty of the land and people of Costa Rica in a way that contributes to the harmonious growth of the country as a whole. As a business leader and competent and skilled manager, Olga has created a trusted and talented network of knowledgeable professionals that are able to address virtually all of her clients’ needs – from high-end catering, wedding and event planning to local tours, recreational activities and transportation – including helicopter and private jet flights inside and out of Costa Rica.
“The people I work with are the best in their fields,” Olga says. “The safety of our guests, how they feel and the quality our professional services are very important to us. I make sure that everything is taken care of to a very high standard.”
