Jan van Welie
CEO and Founder
Born in Santo Domingo, trained in business administration and fluent in English and Spanish, I have been involved in the real estate business for over ten years working the top high-end luxury resorts in the Dominican Republic and throughout the Caribbean as a sales executive and real estate broker. In the Dominican Republic I have worked in Casa de Campo and the Punta Cana Resort. I have also worked both here and in the United States promoting the Cap Cana lifestyle.
Much of my childhood was spent in Casa de Campo in my parent’s villa and for the last twenty years I have made La Romana my home. This has allowed me to develop an extensive knowledge of Casa de Campo and to acquire a unique insight into my clients’ needs.
I enjoy my work immensely and try to provide an exceptional experience to each of my clients by listening carefully to their needs, developing a strategy and planning the most efficient means of attaining their goals. Known for my integrity, my aim is to always achieve my clients’ utmost trust and confidence. I'm very proud of my clients and of my close associates and I’m honored by the opportunity to assist them, as they ultimately add to my success, for which I am grateful!
COO and Co-Founder
Although I was born and raised in Santo Domingo, I spent most of my weekends in Casa de Campo from early on. This positive early experience led me to move to the resort after graduating from college. As a permanent resident of Casa de Campo I started working in real estate from the inside out, managing construction projects, decorating and equipping villas, designing and creating landscapes, hiring and training staff, managing villas, renting and reselling.
I had the chance to work with the Italian developers of Jardin Minitas and Casa de Campo Marina, selling and building Villas El Ingenio, leading the sales department of Casa de Campo’s real estate developer for 4 years, and develop Villas Las Terrazas. All this experiences, and many more, gave me the opportunity not only to meet and get to know most of the property owners but also mastering how this amazing gated community works, how the market is leading, and the legal aspects of the industry, knowledge that I use to guide my clientele to make the best possible investments within the resort.
Clients appreciate my honesty, my training, and my discretion. I love to make their dreams come true, helping them find not only a house, but the very best investment as well as the perfect lifestyle for their entire family - in a place I’ve called home for more than 20 years!
