Mary’s adventure to Roatan began in 1975, and it was love at first sight. The following year she was hired by the original owner of Anthony’s Key Resort and kept busy with guest services and scuba diving! After marriage and the births of her two sons, she started a successful cottage industry and gift shop business. By 1991 she studied Real Estate and Honduran Real Estate Law and then opened Island Properties, the Bay Island’s first real estate office.
Roatan is no longer the sleepy little getaway of the well-traveled few. It has become a popular travel destination and home to a diverse international community. Mary’s love affair with Roatan continues today… When will yours begin?
Almost 20 years ago we fell in love with Roatan. We were really lucky, after asking around for a good real estate agent, to meet Mary Monterosso. She patiently listened to what we wanted and helped us find an amazing piece of paradise. Mary also made sure we understood everything we needed to know about buying property in a foreign country, and carefully guided us away from some of the pitfalls. Over the years we have used Island Properties to purchase and sell other properties. Mary has always done a great job and we wouldn’t consider doing business with anyone else on the island!Mark and Jacque Nansen – San José, CA
We would highly recommend Mary Monterroso! Words that describe Mary’s work: complete honesty, very well connected, extremely hard working, intuitive, problem solver, and always gets the job done. Buying or selling, Mary has been there for us. She has helped us in so many ways and solved problems for us we didn’t even know we had. We would not use any other realtor!Steve and CC Helmick – Spring, TX
