Our Press Kit


Our greetings to you from the Deep South,

“El Sur” as it is referred to in-county is a mix of lush green forests, snowy white mountain peaks, alpine lakes, grassy pampas, fjords and centuries old glaciers. Thinly settled in the countryside yet teaming with activity. It’s an international eco-tourist destination and retreat from the heat, stress and buzz of city life.

Chile the economic “puma”1,2,3 of Latin America is a politically stable emerging market country. Thus making it a really great place to consider buying your next holiday home, farm or get-a-way place.

Founding History

The business was founded in 2010 by Martin & Jeanette Schnall (a husband / wife) from the United States. He as a trained mechanical engineer and she with a background in business and property investment.

Together the couple began planning their move to the Chilean countryside in 2004 to become part of a growing community of citizens interested in living a more sustainable lifestyle in a fresh & beautiful area of the developing world.

Since they left behind their jobs to make the move the two needed to find the best way to re-invent themselves career wise. Thus began their foray into the real estate market and web development.
