Born and raised in Germany, “Jogi” Juergen Gerner first visited Costa Rica in 1992 and fell in love with the country right away. Following subsequent visits, he decided to make Tamarindo his home, and when a close friend offered him a position at their local real estate business, Jogi knew he had discovered his dream job.
After establishing strong foundations in the area, he decided to launch ABC Real Estate with his wife Verena Moshammer in 1999—and the two have been going strong ever since. Today, Jogi is the Owner and Broker of ABC Real Estate, where he services clients throughout the Northern Pacific Coast of Costa Rica. With his offices located at the heart of Tamarindo, he has combined his expertise, compassion, and integrity to meet the demands of any transaction, from residential homes to lots and commercial properties.
When marketing a listing, Jogi prefers a comprehensive strategy. After helping his clients fully prepare their property for the sale, he and his daughter, a social media expert, share it through a blend of highly targeted online campaigns. In the meantime, he employs a suite of professional resources, including stand-out signage, to give his sellers an added advantage in the marketplace, ensuring a seamless transaction that maximizes their value. “We live by our slogan: ‘Fine selections by the beach,’” Jogi says. “For us, it’s not just about what we sell; it’s about whom we work with. We strongly believe that the chemistry has to fit between our team, our clients, and their properties. After all, if you’re enthusiastic about something, it’s easy to sell.
Elsewhere, Jogi is just as committed to his buyers, leveraging his decades of experience and in-depth knowledge of Costa Rica to connect them with the right home for their best interests. Over the years, he has earned a terrific reputation throughout the region, as evidenced by his strong rate of repeat clients and referrals, as well as his glowing client testimonials. Through it all, though, he remains focused on the proven approach that has set him apart. “Real estate comes down to two main things: listening and being honest. But I also have a great wife. Verena supports me and has been crucial to our success.
Outside his career, Jogi is deeply committed to his community. He has previously been involved with the local association and municipality of Tamarindo, where he has collaborated with others to complete various projects around town—including a new police station. When he’s not with clients or giving back, he can be found swimming, going for a hike with his dog, riding motorcycles, or spending quality time at home with his beloved family.
Looking ahead, Jogi has strong plans for the future of his business. Having completed this year in sales till August 2021—four times the volume of his previous best year—he is most focused on scaling his workflow to assist his rapidly growing clientele. But most of all, he is fulfilled by the values that brought him to real estate in the first place. “There’s nothing more satisfying than helping others,” he says. “In our business, you’re well rewarded for doing the right thing for your clients.”
