...To navigate the buying process

We've helped numerous clients successfully purchase homes in the Dominican Republic. 

The process is a lot like it is in the US or Canada. It's set up to encourage foreigners to invest in property. However, there are differences. 

So it's good practice to have someone you can trust there to guide through every step.
