“Jocelyn became more of a friend than a realtor. She was down to earth, well-spoken and educated and was very knowledgeable about the local real estate buying process, the neighborhoods, etc. and put me in touch with all of the right people (mortgage brokers, painters, etc…) The best part was that she understood what I was looking for, suggested the perfect apartments for me, and was patient through the entire process.
There was no pressure to take just any apartment. Jocelyn gave the pros and cons of each viewing and what would be involved each step of the way. making it an enjoyable and stress less experience.”
“As a Canadian Investor from British Columbia, I can say that the services provided by Punta Cana Real Estate Lifestyle and Homes exceeded my expectations. I appreciated the candid advice and professional honesty and the service that continued long after an investment deal was completed. My expectations are sometimes considered to be too high and many other companies had difficulty to meet the standards I have been continually seeking to find. I was very happy that this company excels in a very challenging business and industry.
I have been able to recommend this company to others and I would not hesitate to do business with this company once again in the near future. Honesty and reliability and communication are the key elements that have made this company an exemplary model for the real estate business industry.”
“We have been visiting the Dominican Republic for 5 years now. We wanted to try and live in the DR the winter of 2011. We tried to contact a number of local realtors and Jocelyn with Punta Cana Lifestyle Real Estate was the first and the only one to respond to our request. She set us up with a great place in the Cocotal Golf and Country Club in Bavaro. We found Jocelyn and Koldo to be very professional and personable individuals and willing to help us beyond just the initial rental transaction.
This year (2015) we finally decided to get serious about purchasing a property in the DR. There was only one choice to help us with the purchase and that was of course Jocelyn and Koldo with Punta Cana Lifestyle Real Estate. Jocelyn had several properties aligned with what she knew we were looking for so when we arrived there was no time wasted. We settled on a beautiful and spacious condo in Cocotal Country club overlooking a beautiful Par 5 golf hole. We have never purchased a property in another country and had some reservations about doing so. Jocelyn eased our concerns and made the buying process very easy and streamlined for us. She put us in contact with professionals here that she knows and trusts and as a result the buying process went extremely smooth and was non stressful.
I highly recommend Jocelyn, Koldo, and all the staff at Punta Cana Lifestyle Real Estate for any type of rental or buying needs in the Punta Cana area. They are people that can be trusted and are genuinely interested in your success here in the DR. They have always gone above and beyond for us over the years and have had a positive impact on our life here in the DR!!”
“Our experience with them was exceptional. Quite simply the whole team were a pleasure to deal with going “far beyond the call off duty” In our case they secured the sale of our villa overcoming many difficult problems but always showing total professionalism.
They are a credit to the real estate industry. A team that you can trust and completely rely on. We will always look to them and no others in the future when dealing in real estate in any capacity in the DR.”
Buying Experience: “When I started to be interested in purchasing a rental property in Punta Cana I corresponded with four real estate companies and after five or six weeks I concluded that Gary Boyd who works for the Punta Cana Lifestyle Real Estate Agency was the person to go with. Without a doubt I made the right decision. On my second trip to Punta Cana, with Gary’s and the Punta Cana Lifestyle Real Estate staff’s expert knowledge of the real estate in Punta Cana ,I purchased a Condo in the Cocotal Golf Resort .
The one concern I had in buying a Condo I would rent out on an Island and 2000 miles away was who would manage the Condo for me . After talking to Jocelyn I knew she was the one. After eight months I know I made the right decision. She goes above and beyond her duties as a manager. Any problems that arise are quickly and efficiently taken care of . The one thing that really impressed me was the way she helped in the closing which can be a very tedious, time consuming and complicated process. She and Gary again went above and beyond to help me get through this process. If you are looking to buy a property or having someone manage a property in Punta Cana I highly recommend Jocelyn Hernandez and her staff at Punta Cana Lifestyle. A Happy Condo Owner-Phil Weber”
Property Management Experience: “Approximately six years ago I began to entertain the idea of diversifying some of my investments into a rental condo in the Caribbean. My wife and I visited a few of the Islands and decided to buy in Punta Cana because of the beautiful white sandy beaches, the abundance of golf courses, reasonable real estate prices, and friendly people.
After talking to three real estate companies, we decided on Jocelyn and Punta Cana Lifestyle Real Estate. They made the buying process very easy for us but what is most impressive to us is how well Jocelyn manages the condo while it is being rented. She takes care of EVERYTHING. She responds quickly to all of my concerns, questions and any problems that might arise with the condo. My tenants have been in the condo for over three years and they can’t say enough about Joc and Company.”
“My wife Anne and I first visited the Dominican Republic at the invitation of my son as a “recovery” vacation after being hospitalized. The ten day vacation was not only beneficial for my health, it was an eye opening experience to the warm people, wonderful climate, and the variety of activities available in the DR. We were hooked. She said, “Hey, honey, how would you like to live down here?”. I jokingly said yes. And that started an extraordinary change in lifestyle which we have not regretted.
Back home in Virginia, Anne started an extensive search for rentals via the Internet and, luckily, came across Jocelyn at Punta Cana Lifestyles. Through Jocelyn’s efforts, we found the perfect place in the Cocotal Golf and Country Club complex. What impressed me most was the time and effort she put into helping us even though we were leasing, not buying. Within six months, we had sold, auctioned, or given away literally everything we’ve owned, including Anne’s wonderful horses, and made the move. We have lived in Cocotal three and a half years now and still enjoy our every day in paradise. We continue to have contacts with Jocelyn and other staff members for lease renewals, maintenance reasons and occasional repairs. The followup services they provide are always timely and professional. An unbeatable combination.”
“Jocelyn Hernandez from Punta Cana Lifestyle Real Estate has been representing us for over two years now. We have been nothing but incredibly grateful to have her on site dealing with the maintenance and sale of our apartment. Our relationship with Punta Cana Lifestyle Real Estate has been stress free and we have always felt that nothing has ever been over looked leaving us feel our best interests are always put first. Thank you again for everything.”
“I’ve known Joc and Koldo for 3 years and they are not only great people they are also terrific realtors! They tell you the truth and align themselves with the best attorneys’ in town to protect their clients’ interests! They specialize in certain properties and really know their stuff! They also are bi-lingual which is a big help in a Spanish speaking country! Highly recommend!”
