Whether investing in a new permanent residence or a part-time vacation home, people from all over the world come to Roatan seeking happiness and well-being for themselves and their families. Roatan, a Caribbean island off the coast of Honduras with world-renowned beaches, tropical weather, stunning reef life, a strong ex-pat community, and a continuous fun island lifestyle, is a great choice. But deciding to relocate to another country can be both exciting and daunting. There is much to learn and the adjustment period can be stressful, particularly if undertaken without guidance. Life on Roatan contains detailed information on residency, purchasing or building a house, shipping and mail, cell service, banking, education, utilities, medical insurance, pets, and lots more. Information on these topics is freely available directly from the author, but this guidebook pulls it all together in one handy reference.
Chas Watkins, a RE/MAX agent on Roatan, represents only buyers in real estate transactions. He feels that representing both buyers and sellers creates an unacceptable conflict of interest. He is focused on using his knowledge, experience, and trademark frankness to find the property of his client's dreams, at the best terms and the lowest possible price.
As this publication demonstrates, Chas is very knowledgeable about Island life and truly enjoys showing off its beauty and uniqueness. RE/MAX makes the buying process as smooth as possible and you know with Chas as your representative that you have an expert that is focused only on your needs.
Chas relaxes by running, playing with technology, reading, and enjoying Roatan's unique culture. He is also the author of To Hold the Sun, an award-winning philosophical book that he based on the island of Roatan. It is also available in Spanish as Sosteniendo El Sol.
