Being from Edmonton, I had been very interested for a while in finding a sunny spot to spend a couple of weeks during the cold Canadian winters. I searched throughout Central and South America but, in the end, Nicaragua attracted me because nowhere else seemed as beautiful and safe, and had such amazing prices. It is a diamond in the rough plagued by superstitions of ware which are certainly untrue! The country is even more appealing as an undiscovered gem. I came across the Playa Tesoro website and the photos were breathtaking. Of course not knowing John and Geoff (Bramwell) beforehand, I did my research on the company, as well as Nicaragua. John and Geoff were excellent in answering all my question; And the project seemed to looking better and better everyday. I since have got the ball rolling on closing the land deal, and already plan to return in November. We have not even gotten back onto the plane and my girlfriend already wants to make plans to move there!. I simply cannot wait to get back.
Over the years we have traveled to several Latin American countries and have always enjoyed the wonderful people and cultures. So when John Bramwell told us about Nicaragua, it tweaked our interest. But we had some doubts at first because we had heard stories of political unrest and conflict between different factions. After reading up on Nicaragua, we found that it has been politically stable and free from unrest for a number of years. Since then, we jumped at the chance to invest on the ground floor of the fantastic development at Playa Tesoro. In addition to the political stability, another key reason for our decision was the Playa Tesoro's management. We have known John and Geoff Bramwell for a number of years and have found them to be honest and hardworking. We first met John when he was nineteen years old and even at that time he was co-owner of his own company. We have every confidence in the integrity of the John and Geoff Bramwell. In the past two years, they have put together a fantastic hard-working and well-informed team in Nicaragua. Playa Tesoro is truly an amazing place; an excellent location with miles of pristine sand and ocean waves, and first-class amenities under development. We are looking forward in the future to spending more time at Playa Tesoro with our grandchildren. John has shared many of his exciting ideas for Playa Tesoro with us. He is truly a visionary and with his hard work and enthusiasm Playa Tesoro is going to be one of the foremost developments in Nicaragua. During the last year we have visited Nicaragua four times and have found the local people to be friendly and courteous. During each visit, we have seen the progress at Playa Tesoro and continue to closely follow the development progress. After two years, we believe that have made a good investment in Playa Tesoro Resort.
I am not one to take big financial chances except for investments in the stock market. John has been an acquaintance of mine for a few years, and when John and I sat down to talk about Playa Tesoro, he presented the project very well. I was very impressed with his business nature and personality. I think the most important aspect of that meeting was that my wife and I developed a great deal of confidence in John and the project, as well as in Nicaragua, despite the political history. As a result, we decided to buy a lot at Playa Tesoro. Since then, John and Geoff have kept us well informed with constant updates and communication. They have proven themselves as talented, professional and confident businessmen, with a drive to always succeed.
I have been gifted a special opportunity to be both friends and business partners with John Bramwell. John is intelligent, open minded, fair and has good business sense. Because of this respect, I purchased a lot at Playa Tesoro in Nicaragua. I appreciate that he moves forward with a conscious effort in being both socially and environmentally aware, as well as holding belief in the importance of giving back to local communities in Nicaragua. His staff can be commended on their conduct and high integrity work and I truly believe they have the best intentions for everyone involved. As for myself, I am excited for sun, sandy beaches, getting to know the language, culture and local people, and giving back to the community in additional ways yet to unfold. I am always looking for new investments, and it’s always a pleasure to do business with people you can trust.
I have known Geoff and John Bramwell for many years. As a former work associate during that time, I have learned to trust I them and their judgement, and the decisions they make as businessmen. I have seen them successfully run a profitable construction company for over twenty years, and there is no doubt in my mind that Playa Tesoro will be equally successful. Geoff and John work extremely hard and don’t stop until the job is done right. It is one of the key reasons that I am now an investor with the company.
