We are happy to provide a positive referral on behalf of Maribel Crespo as a real estate representative in Ecuador. In her efforts to represent the sale of our Ecuadorian property, we found her to be consistently knowledgable, professional, courteous, responsive and prompt in all her dealings with us. She is sensitive and considerate of the different cultural perceptions that incoming North Americans have in regards to real estate vis-a-vis Ecuadorians. She offers good advice and counsel in dealing with the complex Ecuadorian real estate environment. Without hesitation, we recommend her as a reliable agent. Roger and Suzanne Yazell

We first met Maribel on our exploratory trip to Ecuador in 2011. Once we decided to come to Cuenca, we sent a very detailed "wish List" to Maribel and asked her to find just the right condo for us. She found exactly what we were looking for, skillfully handled all arrangements for us while we were still in the States, worked with our landlord to arrange for new floors and new double-pane windows to be installed, and made the entire process easy and painless. She speaks perfect English, is punctual, reliable, well-connected in Cuenca, scrupulously honest, accessible, and is always upbeat and positive. She is a delight to work with on both a personal and a business level, and we and numerous friends who have engaged Maribel highly recommend her! Karl and Brenda Sweetman

Maribel helped us find the perfect condo in Cuenca and then helped us through each step of the purchase process. Now she has helped us find our second home on the coast. We turn to Maribel to give us good advice and introduce us to people who can provide us with additional assistance. Sincerely Bob Cox

My husband and I came to Ecuador from the US for a 3-month reconnaissance trip to identify a community where we might like to settle down. We liked Cuenca very much and, days before the end of our trip, on the recommendation of a US expat, we took a quick tour of Cuenca condos and homes with local realtor, Maribel Crespo who showed us a home in the countryside that was a very good fit, given our particular requirements. In addition to speaking excellent English, we found Maribel to be efficient, honest, reliable, resourceful, with a quick mind, and always "simpatica" personality, and a total commitment to customer satisfaction regardless of wealth or the size of the purchase. The home we liked was listed by another real estate agent so her commission was relatively small; however, Maribel was able to match us with that home within about 3 hours. It was simply delightful to work with Maribel. When we later decided to delay our move to Ecuador substantially, Maribel Crespo went the extra distance to help coordinate fit-out of our newly-constructed new home with appliances and accessories, and minor fix-up, as needed for rental. And once the home was ready, she found a suitable tenant even before we had it formally listed. We highly recommend Maribel who provided invaluable assistance to us as we prepared to move to Ecuador.

My husband and I came to Cuenca on our exploratory trip in December 2012. Despite the short notice and it being during the holidays, Maribel made time for us and drove us around to give us an idea of properties for purchase and rent. Once we moved here in October 2013, we contacted Maribel right away, and began looking for properties....Maribel had remembered our criteria from the year before and immediately showed us a property which was too good to pass up...we ended up buying it, although we had intended to rent at first. Throughout the process, Maribel was available to us immediately, by e-mail, by phone, and in person. She held our hand, explaining the processes in her impeccable English. We highly recommend Maribel (in fact, relatives of ours are going through the process now to purchase two properties from Maribel) for her work ethic, her non-pushy demeanor, her expertise, and her loyalty. Maribel did not stop helping after we bought the property...she put us in touch with an electrician, a plumber, a handyman, a locksmith, and even helped translate for us when we hired a maid. Moreover, Maribel was helpful in locating a tailor and most recently, a general physician. She is very well-connected and highly regarded in her field, as well as in Cuenca. Thanks Maribel, for helping make our house a home and being genuine throughout the process. Deepa Aggarwal

Maribel recently sold a condo for me in Cuenca and handled the entire process beautifully! She managed each step efficiently, professionally and with grace. Within 24 hours of listing she posted photos and details on her website. She priced it correctly and actively marketed and showed the property. When the buyer was ready she smoothly managed the process to closing in just a few weeks. Her business practices were in direct contrast to the expat realtor I'd previously listed the property with: He priced it way too high, took 6 weeks to post it online and in 6 months showed the place only twice. Maribel is a STAR! I am so grateful to have found her! Sheila Donnell

After reading through recommendations on this site we contacted Maribel to help us through the process, and she was extremely helpful with her guidance and involvement. She helped identify other potential alternative properties, provided us with considerations we had not made, and coordinated with the sellers for access to view the properties. Maribel was very responsive, detail oriented, and her communications in English and Spanish helped us navigate the real estate process in Cuenca. Should we be in the position again of purchasing property in Cuenca we would work with Maribel again without hesitation. Darin Anderson

Real Estate Expert! If you need excellent and professional real estate services in the Cuenca area, whether for a short term apartment rental or to buy your dream home, you would do well to have Maribel Crespo (of Ecuadorable Homes) represent you. She is highly recommended by the folks at International Living where I met her at their expat conference in Quito. She arranged and led a fun and informative 3-day guided real estate tour of Cuenca, including van transportation, hotel accommodations and meals, where our group got to see many different types of housing available to rent or buy. Thanks to her savvy knowledge of market trends and locations, I was able to soon buy my new townhome in a quiet and safe condo complex, where I now live with my two cats. Maribel also arranged for me to have rental furniture delivered just before I left California and moved in, and also helped me to find the resources necessary to successfully settle in. She is a licensed bilingual real estate agent who understands the entire process of helping expats and locals to rent, buy, sell and/or relocate. She enjoys helping people and is always available to quickly answer your questions, and I observed where she is held in high esteem by her community. I strongly encourage you to contact Maribel so she can make your real estate dreams come true! Recommended by Bartley D'Alfonso at bdalfonso.ec@gmail.com
