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.
