Roatan Testimonials See What Our Clients Say!
We are writing to give our highest recommendation to Remax/Bay Islands. As American citizens, we were a bit unsure about how to transact a real estate purchase and sale in a foreign country, but my husband always wanted to own beachfront property in the Caribbean. It was a lifelong dream of his. I only wish we had found the amazing team at Remax/Bay Islands many years ago. But thankfully we found them when it was time to sell.
Our experience with this team, especially Doward Johnson and Jacky Castro, was top-notch in every way. Our broker stayed in constant touch with us, and Doward and Jacky were our eyes and ears on the ground there in Roatan, executing all of the legal and practical things necessary to close. They have a very thorough knowledge of the country and the Real Estate business on the Island. It was a remarkable experience.
But the most important thing of all is how honest, diligent, thorough, competent and trustworthy they were! They were honestly incredible.
I say to anyone looking to purchase property in another country, be very careful who you deal with. We are 100% happy with every bit of our experience, and of course, the final result as well. If you are looking to buy a home or property in Roatan, Honduras, do not look anywhere else! Go straight to Remax/Bay Islands and deal with the very best. There is no reason to do anything else. You will not be sorry.

My husband and I were interested in a retirement home in Roatan. We reached out to RE/MAX, and we were so lucky that Todd Hagerty was assigned to us.
Todd and his wife set up a phone call conversation and asked all the details about our interests and needs. When we arrived in Roatan, Todd was extremely prepared for a week of showings. We had already looked online and had found multiple places that we were interested in; however, Todd gave us the island tour and opened our eyes to what part of the island would fit our needs. Thanks to Todd’s hard work, we found a perfect place that we call home now.
Todd’s dedication to his customers didn’t end there. He helped us with all other needs that come with owning a new home, especially in another country. He and his wife went above and beyond to ensure we were taken care of. Todd has the qualities that make him an extremely successful and effective realtor agent. We can’t say enough about his professionalism and knowledge. We are proud to call Todd and his wife our friends and agent.
Todd’s integrity is above and beyond, and he always keeps the client’s best interests in mind. He shows great attention to the details enabling the transaction to get done. We have the highest level of confidence and trust in him. We were so lucky and grateful to have him as our agent and now as our friend.

Highest recommendation for Larry Schlesser and this ReMax team. They really know their stuff. My family has bought and sold several properties on Roatan over the last two decades. And unlike other folks we dealt with in the past, Larry’s team is responsive, communicative, and solution oriented. When you’re dealing with long distances and language and rules that are new to you–that can-do attitude is invaluable. We were contending with a rather complicated deal and Larry went above and beyond to simplify it and get it done. Honest. Helpful. Friendly. Professional. I don’t know why you’d use anybody else.

I just wanted to reach out to you alone now that we are in final closing mode. We cannot thank you enough for finding us the perfect place in paradise! You did a fabulous job getting us all around the island and we had so much fun while doing it AND found us a lawyer. You were so pleasant, fun, professional, yet laid back. A true RE Champion! I had a blast that day searching for our new land and you found us everything we were looking for and more. 5 star all the way. We will certainly reach out to you before we come in February. Hope to get to see you and hang out for some drinks and island time. Thank you a million times for all your help Edi. We were truly blessed to have you are our agent and hopefully a friend forever.
Peace and prayers,

We recently had the pleasure of working with Melania Matute in the purchase of a property in Roatan. The sale was a complicated one and took well over a year from purchase agreement to closing.
Throughout the entire process, Melania was professional and diligent in working through the many impediments to closing. We are convinced it was her charming persistence that enabled this difficult sale to reach a successful conclusion.
We were so impressed with her abilities, we recommended her to list a property to another owner whose property we look after.
We certainly wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Melania to anyone interested in buying or selling property on the island.

I have known Larry Schlesser since 2001 as a very capable and honest real estate broker. What separates Larry and his company from the competition is their integrity. I have purchased properties on Roatan through Larry and Roatan Real Estate and recommend them to anyone interested in a capable and honest broker. My future purchases will be through Roatan Real Estate.

When my wife and I decided we were interested in purchasing property on Roatan we were fortunate to find Alex Poirier online. He responded to emails in a timely manner, was knowledgeable about all aspects of purchasing a home in Honduras and extremely informative about island living.
When we came for our first visit to the island, he spent countless hours with us showing us property from one end of the island to the other. Alex wasn’t trying to make a sale. He really focused on getting to know us and our needs and interests and trying to find something that suited us.
We never had a moment of doubt in our home purchase process and never felt exposed or unprotected because Alex was there every step of the way.
We could not be happier with the property on the East End of the island that we bought and would recommend Alex without hesitation to anyone interested in purchasing their own piece of paradise.

George and I met Alex (Poirior), 5 years ago when we came to the island in search of our Caribbean dream home. He picked us up at the airport, showed us around on the way to our hotel, giving us information along the way. A couple of days later picked us up for a day long tour of the island so that we could decide what area that we would most like to live. Along the way, he gave us a ton of information about the island intermixed with some great stories about his life on the island. Our first trip here didn’t find the house that we liked, so we ended up buying property in West Bay with the intention to build within a few years. After coming to the island several times a year, we decided to buy a condo until time to build our dream home. Alex sold us both properties and we have enlisted him to sell our condo, since we are finally building our home. Alex and Marilyn are now our good friends and continue to offer help and advice.
I’m so glad that we chose Alex as our buyer’s agent and will continue to refer potential clients to him.

Just wanted to thank you one more time for helping us find the perfect place for us in paradise! We felt in love with Roatan the first time we visited the island and now thanks to YOU, we got our own place there. You are wonderful and we couldn’t find a better realtor. Thank you so much for your help and we definitely are going to recommend you to all our friends who will decide to move to the island as well. Also, we have to get together next time we come there, which is going to be very soon!
