“We decided to make a move from Mexico to Roatan on a weekend, I found John and Barbara on a google search to look at available properties.  I contacted them and within minutes they replied with MLS listings and suggestions for us to see upon a trip to Roatan. We booked and flew out to meet with them and purchased a beautiful home of our dreams within days.John and Barbara guided us on every aspect, answered all questions immediately and followed up with answers they needed to obtain. The entire process was smooth from signing contract, scheduling inspection, closing to other issues that we needed assistance with after closing. We have been in our home for several months and I know I can always drop them a message with any question about island living, without John and Barbara we would have been lost. They go above and beyond what I would ever expect an agent to do for and after a sale.
We not only have our agents for life on Roatan but good friends.”- Angie & Brian – Owners of Beach Front home in Parrot Tree

EJ Q’anilUno

EJ has lived on Roatan since June of 2005. He has his own graphic design business, PhunkiMonkey Designs, which he started back in 2001 when he hopped on a plane to Costa Rica with a backpack, 5 words of Spanish, and a laptop!

During the rainy season of 2014, he decided to create a digital topographical map of Roatan with the intention of selling custom colored prints for wall decoration. Fast forward to about a year ago, after 3 months of long distance phone tag, Roatan Cartography Co. is ready for production!

Any size and customization is possible although he specializes in two basic products:
1) The island by itself
2) As part of a backboard or magnetic board for a map or dive sites

“Living in Central America for the past 20+ years I’ve learned to be self sufficient and in a few occasions create new things that didn’t exist. Pretty crazy how 17 years ago I got here doing simple street maps of the towns of Guatemala and Bay Islands and now have developed that into this 3D model super fantastic project.”

You can see his creations throughout the island at Blue Bahia, Hangover Hut, as well as some private home installations. Contact EJ to place your order and find out more!

About The Author
Mike Carter

In 1996 I made my first trip to Honduras, and immediately fell in love with the diverse culture, people and physical beauty of this vibrant place. As the years went by and the frequency of my travels to Roatan increased I took the leap and began investing and developing real estate with -Yea, you guessed it!- Roatan Life Real Estate. One of the properties I purchased was a vacation home in Palmetto Bay Plantation. After a few months of talks, Gene DeMarco and I started Roatan Life Vacation Rentals and Property Management. The birth of the new division of Roatan Life Vacation Rentals inspired my wife Cindy and I to make the leap and leave our careers in the USA and move to Roatan full time. As a principal in a growing property management company with an extensive background in customer service, I decided to take the next step and became a licensed realtor here in Honduras. Since then I have been happy to partner with Steve Hasz and Gene De Marco as an owner, partner, and leader of the Roatan Life Real Estate team. I believe my experience in business here on Roatan and in the United States makes me a great solution for your real estate needs. I am known for my directness (the Midwesterner in me), but feel that is the most transparent way to work with clients; I want to be sure Roatan is right for them and help them make the best decisions possible. I look forward to working with you.
