We would highly recommend Marci Wiersma from About Roatan Real Estate. We both bought and sold through her. She knows her stuff and lives on the island. She is very organized and will put you with a good lawyer.

Thank You so much for helping Linda and me get our dream home!
I am available to chat with anyone who wishes to hear about our experiences with you and our adventure in coming to Roatan. We could not have asked for a better real estate agent to help. Roatan can be a little difficult to find properties because of the lack of addresses and street signs, but Marci 19 years of experience as an agent on the island made this look easy. We tested her driving skills through dirt roads and steep inclines. Like many clients we needed to check off some boxes before we settled on what we wanted in Roatan. Marci was respectful, professional and willing to take us around the island and back again, while we checked off one property after another. Of course we paid her back by buying her lunch before we traveled on to more properties. Finally we decided, but that is not where this ends.
Marci has a staff of very knowledgeable people, who set to work getting document in order and filed for a timely closing.
It does not end here either. We should call Marci a relocation specialist. She offered to help us set up a checking account, gave us contacts to buy a car, a contact to help get household items through customs and allowed us to call her for directions when we got lost trying to find a restaurant or store. She was like having your own personal concierge. Of course we still buy Marci a lunch or dinner now and then which is not enough for all this wonderful lady has done for my wife and me!

“So… how did you find Roatan”? This is often the first question asked by friends when we tell them about Roatan and like many people, the answer begins with “… our cruise ship ported on this beautiful, little island”. After our stop in Roatan, we were intrigued and captivated by this wonderful paradise, so we decided to “look into possibly getting a place”.
Enters Marci Wiersma. After doing diligent research on our part about Roatan realtors, sending emails and setting up telephone “interviews” (which we laugh about now), Marci relayed a sense of knowledge and understanding of our wants and needs. Marci has lived in Roatan for almost 20 years, which gave us a sense of comfort and trust in the guidance and navigating the process of what would ultimately be one of the best decisions of our lives, purchasing a lot, and building our home.
“We are proud to call Marci and her beautiful daughters “family” in every sense of the word”.
-Anthony & Emy Upshaw
Marci & staff are wonderful. They are attentive to detail and took great care to make sure we got exactly what we wanted in Roatan!
I wouldn’t use anyone else!
Marci is simply amazing. She is professional and knows everything about Roatan. If you are thinking about buying a property in Roatan, Honduras,
We did our homework, spending days on various web sites, narrowing down those properties that fit out objectives& We e-mailed Marci with these prospects and with both their local knowledge, further weeded and whittled down our list. We then scheduled our trip and one should allow for a full week to be able to see everything and to also give you a couple days to enjoy your future home.
Marci met us at the airport handled everything from the baggage to getting us settled in at our vacation rental even helped us get a rental car later in the week From dawn’s early light to dusk Marci never left us until we had seen every inch of the island and had seen every possible property fitting our criteria.
OK, but what if you find your dream home or lot Marci guides you through every twist in the road during the negotiations process. Her affiliation with Gustavo (one of the few excellent local attorneys), makes preparing offers, mortgages and title work a breeze. You see, everything must be in Spanish first, and then proper translations are made into your native language.
But it doesn’t stop there after you are settled back into you couch at home Marci is still working your deal. We had her established with our Power of Attorney so she could execute additional documents related to our purchase. So, now you might think that is all Nope. Paying folks down here is not that simple. Unless you carry thousands of dollars in you belly packs, you must wire funds to Marci because she will make those escrow payments, or draw payments, or tax payments, or local contractor payments, you get the message? Paying for all the incidental payments in Roatan is a pain Marci helps you make this happen as painless as possible.
As you can tell, we could not have bought our piece of paradise without her. She is a joy to be around and her infectious energy will keep you excited and assured that she will make everything work out. So, is Marci just a real estate agent by a long shot!”
Marci, we love you!

“We wish there was a way to tell the world how pleased we are with all the services you have provided us in our move to Roatan. Changing lifestyle and moving to a foreign country is fun and exciting but also overwhelming. Although we felt like absolute pests relying on your help for so many things you always reassured us that it was okay and that you wanted us to be happy in our new life. It’s been six months since our purchase and your still helping us. This is incredible service after the fact, to put it in common terms, you didn’t take the money and run. We will always be grateful for your sense of caring, willingness to help and your integrity.
When we first arrived in Roatan, you were at the plane to meet us and take us to a wonderful hotel that you had selected for us, you don’t know how comforting that is when the plane lands at night after a full day of travel and in a foreign country. While looking for a home you took the time to get to know us to determine the perfect real estate for our budget and life style. We feel that we have the perfect house in the perfect neighbor hood. It was your patience and knowledge that helped us find our dream home. Your principles and expertise in real estate gave us confidence in knowing that our purchase would not have any legal ramifications at a later time.
The next step of our journey was to move here. Again you were there helping us get to know the island and the services needed to settle in our new home.
We both sincerely thank you for all your help and will be forever grateful that you were with us every step of the way. If there is ever an opportunity for us to reassure any future clients of your integrity, honesty and professionalism, we would like to do so. We love Roatan and our new home”.

To Marci Wiersma,
“I want to thank you for the excellent service you provided me in finding just the residential property I was looking for on the beautiful island of Roatan. My requirements were specific, detailed, and not easy to satisfy; however, you were very patient and helpful every step of the way. Of all the realtors I contacted you were the most positive, knowledgeable, and responsive to my needs. Above and beyond that, you made me feel at home in a foreign country, treating me, a stranger, like family. The family feeling extends to everyone in your office. In short, it has been a real pleasure doing business with you. I genuinely look forward to having you and your family as neighbors.”
Boone, North Carolina
“I had the great fortune, when looking for real estate agents prior to my first visit to Roatan, to have chosen Marci Wiersma. I’ve bought and sold houses, condominiums and raw land all over the United States (and now on Roatan), and can honestly say that I’ve never had a better experience than I did with Marci.
Not only is she knowledgeable about Roatan and the intricacies of Honduran real estate law, but they’re friendly, hard working, responsive and honest. They never tried to “sell” me anything, but instead focused their energies (and boundless patience) on trying to understand what it was that I was looking for, then working as hard as they could to help me find it. And the service they provided began well before I ever set foot on the island,
then continued long after my purchase was concluded.
I would recommend Marci to anyone considering buying or selling
property on Roatan, and recommend them without reservation.”

Our thanks to Marci Wiersma,
“How you have changed the course of our lives! Little did we know that after a few months of telephone calls and e-mails, that we would purchase a home in Turtle Crossing. For many years my wife and I were looking for an affordable retirement home in the islands. We were very nervous of the risk factor and apprehensive about the does and dont’s.
From the first day I spoke with Marci I new that she was the person I wanted to continue to do business with. Her low pressure and delightful personality was enough for me to make a trip to Roatan and meet her. After countless e-mails and phone calls, I finally booked a trip to Roatan. Little did we know that Marci was about to delivery a baby at the same time we were to arrive. However, she had all her bases covered.
In the end we decided to buy an existing house in Turtle Crossing, a few minutes walk from the west end. To this day we still cannot believe how easy the whole process was. This was mainly due to Marci efforts.
We would recommend Marci to anyone who is interested in buying property in Roatan”.
