Georgina Balke was born and raised in Argentina, where she began learning English at the age of 7; by the age of 16, she was not only bilingual, but the linguistic bug had seized her! Apropos of everything, she later attended the University of Cordoba and earned her degree as an English Teacher and Translator. While in Argentina, Georgina worked in private institutions teaching children English and also worked part-time as a translator.
At the age of 27, she met her husband while he was on a business trip to Argentina. Two years later, they married and moved to Texas, USA. There, Georgina taught Spanish classes and later took several years off to stay at home with her two children. When she was ready, she launched her own business teaching Spanish to young children through song.
In 2015, Georgina and her husband relocated to Costa Rica to live life differently – the “Pura Vida” or “pure life” way. After a couple of years in real estate, she began working at Blue Water Properties, which has proven an incredible experience for her. Here, she has found her true calling: Georgina is easy to work with, in part because she genuinely cares and truly enjoys being able to help her clients find their dream home in paradise, while learning about the beautiful places that Costa Rica offers to the world. It has been a total life-changing experience!
