About “Panama Sarah”

Eighteen  years ago, I sold my successful Canadian property management business and followed my wanderlust in my heart…to Latin America. I bought an apartment in Panama, intending to furnish and rent it while I traveled.

Instead, I fell in love with Panama. And like all good romantic comedies, my story ended with me forgoing my free-wheeling ways to put down roots and commit to Panama. (Though I still find time to travel, so it’s the best of both worlds!).

Why did I fall for Panama? The people are friendly. Business is interesting and  vibrant. And I realized there was no better place to live and work.

Over the years I’ve built up an invaluable framework of knowledge and people to help others discover Panama.

Whether you’re interested in one of my vacation rental properties, looking for an overseas investment, or want to take the plunge and live here long-term, talk to me! I can help.

What I offer for Potential Buyers

What I Offer for Potential Buyers

  • Full buyer’s consultant services. I know what’s hot (and what’s not!) in the Panama market. Looking to make an investment? I’ll help you find the perfect property to capitalize on Panama’s steady growth.
  • Relocation services. I’ll introduce you to Panama’s incredible network of English-speaking expats, help get you settled, and ensure that your new house feels like a home.
  • Boots-on-the-ground knowledge of Panama. Like soft sand and bare feet, Panama and I go way back. I know this country inside and out, and I can help you create the tropical life of your dreams here. I’ll help take care of all of the little details, so you can focus on starting your new chapter!
  • An objective perspective. Relocating to a new country is a big decision. If you just need a sounding board, or a listening ear, I can help! I won’t push Panama on you…only you can decide if Panama is a good fit.

What I offer for Travelers

  • Vacation rental properties in some of the best spots in Panama. Just want to visit, but not live here? No problem. Test the waters with a short stay. My vacation rental properties are the perfect way to experience Panama culture without a big commitment.
  • Luxury-yet-authentic accommodations. Beachfront beauties. Penthouse gems. Skyline views. Because I know Panama so well, I know where to find some of the best condos around. Have a look at my property portfolio!

Panama has so much to offer to both travellers and expats, and who better to help you navigate the adventure than someone who’s been through it?

Let my combined passions for travel and real estate open the door into a new world. Give me a call today!

February, 2014 Sarah, Thanks for your time and expertise working with me and Thea in selecting our condo in Coronado Bay. Your prompt attention to detail and local knowledge helped make our decision an enjoyable one. Purchasing a home in a foreign land can be intimidating, but you made it achievable. Your friendly approach and understanding what we were looking for delivered the best value for us. Please feel free to use us as a reference for any prospective clients. All the best.

“Sarah Booth assisted me in my overseas property search 7 years ago. Being a Realtor myself in BC Canada I was aware that I needed guidance from a knowledgeable expert to lead me through the intricacies and regional complications of purchasing property in a foreign land. Sarah arranged a place for me to stay while I was on my property hunting trip, helped me narrow down the area that best matched what I was looking for and set me up with other local experts to make it happen for me. Within one week it was all done and I still feel that was my best purchase ever. Had Sarah not have been there to guide me I have no doubt it would have taken much longer and been a much more complicated process. Plus, it was a fun week. I’ve said it many times.. Some realtors just make sales, Sarah makes Relationships! I highly recommend the services of Sarah Booth if you are looking for someone that will go above and beyond, follow up and through tirelessly, while always keeping it real, interesting and fun!”
