It is interesting to read articles from the start of the move to Belize journey. Mainly, because I have seen so many people over the years make the same move, albeit not with the same knowledge I had.
I was blessed to have a former leader of Government give me advise thru my move, and allowed my family the privilege of living in their ” compound” to acclimate to Belize.
Moving with 2 teenagers, 10 animals in the middle of the school year, you can imagine I appreciated this of my friends!
Having come across this article below – it had to make me smile, knowing that THIS independent Woman) (ME!) came to Belize, saw a need in the Real Estate World, and to this day, it is my passion to help Belizeans have a career worth having, as we say at Keller Williams IN Belize!
Here is the article written by Trust Professionals:
“I have been so impressed by the spirit of the independent women that come to Belize. A prime example is Rev. Macarena Rose [see here and here] who moved to Belize in 2004 with her 15 year old daughter, five dogs and five cats. As an ordained minister she is a very spiritual person and was fascinated by the Mayan history in Belize.
While living in Florida she worked with the Mayan Studies program and became a Mayan Priestess in order to understand and perform Shamanistic healing. While it is a great passion of hers she is also a professional business woman who runs a successful real estate company called Rainforest Realty, in San Ignacio, Belize. With the energy that only a single mother of two who also raised six adopted children can have, Macarena stays involved in the community, continues to perform weddings and does a weekly biography show on Belize TV.
She was instrumental in attracting the National Association of Realtors (NAR) to Belize and is the immediate past president of the association. Prior to moving to Belize she owned and operated a company in Florida called the Prop Up Pillow. Macarena invented the pillow to help control acid reflux during the night which can lead to esophageal cancer. ( As a survivor herself)
With its English language, common law tradition, private property rights and abundant natural attractions it is easy to see why people from the U.S., Canada and the U.K. see Belize as a lateral move.
The invention was featured on American Medical Review with Walter Cronkite. She says her move to Belize from Florida was “a lateral move.” As a Floridian I feel the same way. With its English language, common law tradition, private property rights and abundant natural attractions it is easy to see why people from the U.S., Canada and the U.K. see Belize as a lateral move.”
