One that got away
Edition: February 12, 2015 | Volume: 43 | No: 5
With the Puerto Rico government trying to lure as many investors to move to the island, as part of the Act 22 initiative, here’s a story of one wealthy fish who got away. A businessman from the Pacific Northwest was recently in Puerto Rico for about two weeks, exploring the possibility of moving here under Act 22. The potential investor told CARIBBEAN BUSINESS sources that he was impressed with what he saw and was particularly enamored of Old San Juan. The businessman, intent on buying property in the Old City, contacted real-estate agents, but was very disappointed when he received poor customer service. Accustomed to receiving quality treatment in other places, the potential investor left Puerto Rico, indicating he was no longer enthusiastic about moving here.
