The Best Real Estate team!!! Ryan & Tiffany, we really appreciate all your hardwork and patience on helping us to find the perfect place. The fact that the team speak English made the process to go smoother. My husband speaks only English and buying a property in a different country seemed difficult for us. I will strongly recommend this professional team.

My wife and I were visiting Manta, Ecuador (16-25 March) when we were entangled in the COVID-19 pandemic. Ryan Kelly greatly assisted us by keeping us updated on a daily (sometimes hourly) changing of local and provice travel restrictions, use of his attorney for legal advice (at no cost) while in country, securing important printing of legal documents used for ground transportation and assisted us with a driver to take us to the airport to exit the country. Ryan reassured us while we were there by keeping in constant contact via telephonic and messaging that he initiated with us. Although we never had the opportunity to meet Ryan fate-toface and to discuss areas and properties to live, our priority (as well as his) at that time was to help us coordinate/plan our immediate exit from Ecuador. Kudos to Ryan for all he did for us, especially under these adverse conditions. Erick & Diane Johnson

We moved to Manta on April 29th. We moved into our new place 4 days later with the help of Ryan Kelly, his wife and Ecuador Shores Realt. It was easy peazy, no muss, no fuss, which is what we needed after that hectic move. Ryan is extremely knowledgeable, personable, and kind. He was sincerely interested in us finding just the right place. I highly recommend Ecuador Shores Realty.

During our trip to Ecuador this past April, we decided to mae it one of our retirement destinations. We began seeking for our new home with the help of Ecuador Shores Realty and could not have made a better decision. Most importantly, they provided the information and staff necessary to simplify our decision/purchase-making process without having to be present. They are the right team to make your dream a reality.

More Testimonials

Many thanks to the entire team at Ecuador Shores Realty. They are everything you want in a realtor - trustworthy, knowledgeable, responsive, patient and friendly. They were quick to respond to all of our questions and provided detailed responses to every inquiry. They are very well informed on all of the projects and developments in and around Manta. They truly go the extra mile to make the buying experience easy and enjoyable. In addition to helping us identify the right property and negotiate a good deal, they were quick to refer us to many service providers to help with customizing our new home. Fantastic job Ryan, Tiffany and Victor. (We enjoyed the whole experience so much we decided to become Ryan and Tiffany's next door neighbors!)

ANYONE, especially, expats MUST engage Ryan and Tiffany at Ecuador Shores Realty, if you have any thoughts of buying property there. Simply, words cannot do justice for the enthusiasm, knowledge, experience and expertise relevant to the subject matter and the processes involved for which Ryan and Tiffany are absolute experts. From "A to Z," they will methodically walk you through the process, even providing consultation with their superb Ecuadorian attorney, who, in turn, knows all about expat property purchasing, residency and all that goes with a relocation of this consideration. These people are NOT rookies trying to make a fast buck. They care and will treat you as family. Their accolades are well deserved and beyond reproach. Ecuador Shores Realty has earned their stellar reputation, and my experiences with them puts this perspective into reality. Nice job, Ryan and Tiffany. Y'all are the best!

We spoke on the phone with Ryan before coming to Manta and when we arrived he had a whole series of properties to show us that met exactly what we were looking for. Ryan and his team met us at the airport, helped us with a hotel booking, and spent two+ days driving us around the area to view properties. We ended up purchasing a new condo and have absolutely no regrets. We used an attorney suggested by Ryan to help with the closing, while we were back in the states, and on our return everything was completed exactly as outlined. Ryan, his wife Tiffany, and their associate Victor, were always quick to respond to questions and really helped us feel comfortable with our investment in a foreign country. I think when looking for a realtor (especially in a foreign country) finding someone as honest and ethical as Ryan should be the top priority. We love our new Manta home and probably will not need Ryan's realty services for some years to come, but he will be our only choice when that time comes! Thank you ESR Team!

Ryan Kelly and his staff are the most proficient of the area and diligent. I found Ryan to be hard working and worked hard to meet my needs for the right property and residence for me. He is knowledgeable about the coast of Manabi and especially Manta. Manta is growing and is the best city for anyone moving to Ecuador for the first time. The transportation is very easy and Ryan and Tiffany can help you with getting to know the area. Also once you buy your property, Ryan and Tiffany will gladly offer you pointers regarding the localities in the area. Ryan is a hand holding type of realtor, that is the kind of realtor I would align with in Florida and that’s what I needed in Manta, Ecuador as I had moved as a single person, and didn’t know anyone.
Lisa Coons

Awesome experience with these guys. Very knowledgable about many areas
Bruce MacDonald
I have never dealt with a more professional, HONEST, caring, and courteous group of people lead by their owner Ryan Kelly. Ryan's customer focus and service skills rank with the best I've ever encountered. He puts in the time and effort seldom seen today and asks for nothing in return. Ryan answered questions, gave us help navigating the sales process and gave us valuable recommendations even though we didn't purchase through ESR. Overall I felt that my satisfaction and friendship was more important to Ryan than the sale. I was treated like royalty and no matter the request he always delivered with a smile. I would highly recommend Ryan Kelly and Ecuador Shores Realty to anyone looking for Property in Manta and the it general area.
Tom Luisi
Purchasing property overseas where laws and customs are different can be a daunting challenge. We came down last fall to explore the Manta area after looking in multiple places. Ryan and Victor were there not only show us properties that met our needs but also made sure we were well versed about life in Manta (and surroundings). They guided us through the entire process and continue to be a valuable resource for us post sale with recommendations for everything from best restaurants to resources for furniture/appliances and even local activities. Highly recommend Ryan and his team. They are enthusiastic boosters for Manta and professional and ethical in their approach.
Lorraine Skoglund
I can not tell you enough how glad I was to find Ecuador Shores Realty. I was a little nervous about buying out of Country till I met them. They're completely professional, friendly and had answers to all my questions. They're American's that have been living in Ecuador for many many year and they also have a guy name Victor (from Ecuador) working for them. This was awesome for they are so well connected to everything you may want or need. They didn't just help me buy a condo they helped me with getting my condo furnished. Teaching me what is around me and Tiffany has been great at helping me design my condo. Knowledgeable, integrity, and just great people. If your looking for a condo, house or even land they've got it! Thanks so much Ryan, Tiffany and Victor for ALL your help!!!
Kathy Anderson
Ryan and his wife Tiffany are a couple of outstanding real estate agents. My wife and I could not have been in better hands with them. They helped us find our dream property and for months after the purchase they went above and beyond the call of duty to help us design and furnish it ,since we were back States side and they were available for us to answer every question on daily basis. They are way more than just realtors the relationship continues way after the sale.... we know we have found new friends for years to come....hands down best realtors in town by a long shot. Everyone can be %100 comfortable knowing they are dealing with great people and true professionals Sarah&Norbert

Ecuador Shores Realty is professional, attentive and honest. In Ecuador real estate it is very difficult to find all 3, let alone any of those. I have worked with them on 3 different deals, and had all my expectations not just met, but surpassed. Their team brings North American standards to the marketplace, which no other realtor currently does. Other agents just want to show you property they can earn full commission on and not show you all the listings in the area. ESR is the only agency that wants to work with other local realtors to find the best property to fit your needs, for they pride themselves on their reputation over making a quick buck, which is rare down here.

After several months of communication with Ryan Kelly (owner/founder of Ecuador Shores Realty), I traveled to Manta and looked at numerous properties with "ESR" along the coast from Manta south to Puerto Cayo. The level of service, honesty and integrity I received from Ryan, his wife Tiffany, and their associates was outstanding! From the time I arrived, until the time I left Manta, I felt extremely confident I was in good hands. This was important since I spoke minimal Spanish and was thousands of miles away from home in the US. At no time did I ever feel pressured or uncomfortable working with them. Their attention to detail in answering and addressing my relentless questions and concerns was key. I've dealt with countless real estate firms and personnel over three decades and I was once a licensed real estate sales person myself. No one's ever impressed me more with the quality of service than Ryan and associates of Ecuador Shores Realty! If you're looking for real estate in the Manta area, this is THE go to business and only game in town as far as I'm concerned.
Ryan, Tiffany and Victor warmly welcomed us on our first day in Manta. They took the time to get to know us and our wants before even looking at any properties. Ryan got us hooked up with a newer condo we could rent for a month for less than our hotel was going to cost for 2 weeks. They arranged for us to meet a local attorney who we really liked (she lived in Ohio as a university student) to discuss residency requirements. They also got us together with Juan the best taxi driver/guide we've ever had. Needless to say we bought a brand new, never lived in condo and Ryan got us a deal we're happy with. Then Tiffany went shopping with us to help pick out furniture. Talk about full service, they really are the best.
