About Jane

Jane Gregson your SOUTHERN TOUR GUIDE!

Jane Gregson: A native of the United States, Jane has traveled and lived in Costa Rica since 2001. She built her home in Alfombra in 2002, and began the development of Summerland Village in 2003. Jane is a graduate of Colgate University, and she also worked extensively in the wholesale clothing industry, and travelled worldwide while based in New York City. She passed the Real Estate Boards in Dade County and later spent 10 years in the Commercial Landscape industry in South Florida.

Jane is fluent in Spanish (and English!) and has had extensive experience in real estate in Costa Rica, including all the legal steps. She has built over a dozen houses for investment as well as individual clients.

Although a world traveler, she chose Costa Rica to be her home and she counts many “Ticos” as her friends. She wants to share the delights of Costa Rica with as many people as she can.
