Punta Cana's newfound popularity as a place to live has landed the town on Hollywood's radar, once again!
HGTV's House Hunters International recently followed Indiana native Cory St. Clair and his fiancé Karen-Ann Peterson, former Miss Aruba and current managing director of an international multi-service company, 7 Incorporated (www.7incorp.com), as they worked with Jocelyn Hernandez at Punta Cana Lifestyle Real Estate to find their dream home in Punta Cana.
House Hunters International, episode HHINT-3508H, "Choosing Between Sand Traps and Sandy Beaches as a Young Couple Plans a Wedding," features an appearance by celebrated golf course designer P.B. Dye and first aired on April 5, 2012, on HGTV.
"Punta Cana is not just for vacations anymore," said Hernandez. "There is a nice expat community, and young entrepreneurs are increasingly looking to invest and take advantage of the business opportunities available in the area." Hernandez, a New York City expat of Puerto Rican descent, moved to Punta Cana in 2006 and works at Punta Cana Lifestyle Real Estate shortly after. The agency offers real estate for sale and rent and has earned a solid reputation among colleagues and clients as one of the few fully staffed, truly full-service agencies in the Bavaro-Punta Cana area to sell only properties with clear title deeds.
"This is an exciting time to start a brand-new life in Punta Cana," Hernandez said. "Real estate prices are still affordable, the community is safe and increasingly family-oriented, and the market is wide-open for people wanting to start their own businesses."
