Born in Australia, educated at university and highly traveled with a strong background in hospitality, Liz Larroquette is a premier real estate professional in Panama, specializing in both residential sales and high-end investment properties.
It was over a decade ago, that the CEO of Empresas Bern, one of the most prestigious builders in Panama, convinced Larroquette to leave her position at an exclusive resort in South America and move to Coronado, Panama. “He made me an offer I couldn’t refuse,” she laughed. “He asked me to manage one of his properties in Panama and when I hesitated, he gave me a place to live. It was one of the best decisions of my life.”
A lot has changed since the CEO saw a good thing and Larroquette made the move. “Initially it was managing a complex on the beach and then I started advising expats about retirement properties and then I found myself selling the properties I would find for mostly retiring North Americans.”
But, like most things in Panama, the real estate market has rapidly changed.
