“Costa Rica Charlie,” to those who know him in Costa Rica, Charles Boyd is the CEO and Director of Sales and Marketing for The Costa Rica Team, representing numerous Costa Rica real estate projects.
Mr. Boyd first visited Costa Rica over 20 years ago, making it his home more than 12 years ago. Charles, got his start acting as a liaison, establishing corporate structures, trusts and banking solutions for those looking to do business in Costa Rica. As his client base grew, using outside law firms and their schedules became cumbersome; therefore, he started his own law firm, to expedite the process for his clients and to keep these services in-house.
Soon, Charles’ clients encouraged him to get involved in land development on the Pacific Coast of Costa Rica during the land boom. Charles bought his first parcel with the help of investors. He successfully sold all 40 lots within six months. He also sold a 1500-acre development with 300 lots and home sites within an eighteen month time frame. Many land owners approached him and requested his assistance with their projects, thus establishing him as ‘Costa Rica Charlie!!
