About The Owner
We live in Bigfork, Montana and winter in Orange Co., CA.,Real estate investor and property manager. Previous cast member of 70's NBC television series Emergency.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2004
Why The Owner chose Recoleta
What has worked for me, to be a successful investor in a foreign country, 'in the city', you must invest wisely in the finest location in the best neighborhood. After exhaustive searching, this location cost a lot more than 99% of the apartments for sale or listed here for rent,but,it really is about 'pride of ownership' and security. That philosophy has worked in my previous foreign investments. This apartment is less than a minutes walk to the most exclusive street in Buenos Aires with the best shops, sights and restaurants.
What makes this apartment unique
The convenience of having just about all the finer things that Buenos Aires has to offer so close
while staying in a luxurious quiet apartment....many of the apartments listed are in noisy neighborhoods on lower floors making it impossible to sleep.
