Origen Real Estate Consultants, Inc. began their research on a trip to Panama in 2009. Terry Bradford-Gugel and Bob Gugel were in Costa Rica and decided to take a couple side trips in Latin America. Bob wanted to see the Panama Canal, and like many others they came to see the Canal and stayed for everything else. They knew that this is where they wanted to continue their work in the real estate industry. They returned to Panama during the summer of 2010 to establish bank accounts, complete their permanent immigration process, and make the necessary contacts to start up a real estate company. Shortly thereafter, they moved to Panama permanently. Origen is the Spanish version of origin or beginning, and their motto became “Paradise Begins in Panama.” Their vision has been to bring professionalism, ethics, integrity, and “customer service” to the real estate industry here in Panama.

Their Corporation is licensed, bonded, indemnified, and registered with the Technical Board in the Republic of Panama – and they have been recognized by The Visitor/El Visitante as the first “full service” real estate company in the country. They do a number of things beyond the call of duty. For clients arriving by plane Terry and Bob, or their Agents, can provide transportation from the airport. If a client needs accommodations, they can receive corporate rates several of the various hotels, especially the Country Inn on the Amador Causeway with a view of ships going by on the Canal. We provide several reputable companies that we have used over the years which will set up tailored tours to combine looking for areas to live, with exploring the wonders of this beautiful country. Origen’s advertising is carried out in local, national, international media, and US and Canada radio spots. This unique radio presence is featured on a Boomer network across the US and western Canada.
