“The Caribbean Is Calling” is the phrase that is uttered the most at our offices. Our clients as well as our team members realize that when the Caribbean Calls, one must always answer! The Caribbean called Scott Medina, and he’s glad he listened. Born in New York, raised in Puerto Rico, having done business in the U.S. all his life, this Florida real estate broker found the silver lining within the cloud of a faltering economy; it was taking business outside of the Country to the sugar-colored beaches of the Caribbean; a dream come true. His permanent relocation to the Dominican Republic was featured on HGTV House Hunters International and is currently in pre-production for a second show with one of the many international families Scott has helped to make their dreams of a home in the Bavaro, Punta Cana area come true. Scott Medina attended The Florida State University where he earned a B.S. in Real Estate & Finance and has over 20 years of real estate experience in the Dominican Republic and the U.S. Scott has no plans of leaving Dominican Republic anytime soon since he married Rosalyn who is 100% Dominican and have two beautiful daughters together, Cecille Marie and Brianna Sophia.

She enjoyed the restaurant business but through a friend she got involved in the real estate business and she realized that this was her true love. She sold the restaurant in 2006 to concentrate on this new exciting business.
After having visited Punta Cana in 2009, Ellen understood that this part of the island was her home. The beautiful white sandy beaches, the turquoise ocean, the great infrastructure, the beautiful apartments and villas, the shopping areas and movie theaters, the golf courses, this was the place to be! Ellen got introduced to Scott Medina, Broker and owner of Go Punta Cana Real Estate through a friend and happy client from Scott and immediately started working with Scott.

In 2010, Anny opened the doors of “Outiside In”, a dining establishment that featured a variety of international dishes prepared to perfection.
