Elisabeth Lindermüller

Elisabeth’s biography reads like a combination of several people: Adventurer, world traveler, Wild West aficionado, wind surfer, mountain biker, state-certified cabinet maker and kitchen designer, construction supervisor, cattle stock farmer, bistro owner, property manager, and proud Mom of two adult children. She was born in the province of Bavaria in Germany where she longed to have horses, dogs, and farm animals. In 1991, she booked a three-week windsurfing trip to Costa Rica, but spent most of her vacation riding horses and falling in love with the Lake Arenal area. She says she finally found her, “nature-farm-cowboy-animals-horse paradise,” and moved here fulltime in 1992. Elisabeth’s first real estate transaction was in 1994 when she helped friends to buy a farm in the area, building their dream home with pool, and managing their estate with numerous farm animals for several years. In the early 2000s she owned a Bistro Style restaurant for a couple of years and then  joined Rico Realty in 2006  where she is the glue that keeps the operation humming. She is also the treasurer of the San Luis Water Department and volunteers her time to the local animal welfare. Her interests include nature studies, her 5 horses, 11 dogs and 4 cats, as well as architecture and home construction, interior design, books, arts, and alternative healing and nutrition. She is fluent in Spanish, English, and German.
