About Select Caribbean Properties

As an independent realtor, Sabine Mertes ­Urbahn, of Select Caribbean Properties, has lived and worked for 22 years on the north coast of the Dominican Republic.

Over those 22 years, Sabine and her team have learned and passed on much wisdom and guidance to our clients from all over the world. That wisdom and advice have helped them to pursue ­and achieve the lifestyle of their dreams.

Fluent in five languages (English, German, French, Spanish and Chinese), Sabine has an intimate knowledge of local real estate law and strong relationships with local reputable attorneys.

We list hundreds of selected Caribbean properties and opportunities and we welcome the chance to help you match one with your lifestyle and budget. Within the Dominican Republic, we specialize in helping clients find properties along the north coast, especially in the vibrant communities of Puerto Plata, Sosua, Cabarete, Rio San Juan, and Cabrera. We also have team members that work with clients in Samana, La Romana, Punta Cana and Santo Domingo.

Our team also has considerable experience in renovating existing properties and constructing villas to a high international standard.

Our clients have come to us from all over the world and are very satisfied with how we have worked together to accomplish their dreams.

As a member of Leading Real Estate Companies of the World, Select Caribbean Properties has access to more than 500 firms in more than 50 countries. Because of this, we have more listings and more real estate sales than any other franchise or luxury organizations.
