Should you decide ( and you should ) to use Kent’s services you will not only be happy with the result but will know that you made the right decision due to kents vast expertise and willingness to share in detail with you .Kent is a class act in everyway
Ken, South Carolina
“Panama is an incredible place to live and to do business but certain precautions need to be taken as it is an emerging market. In the real estate sector there are few better in the country than Kent. He has an unfaltering sense of integrity and tells it how it is, both invaluable and refreshing atributes for a business profesional in Panama
“Kent Davis is one of the few real estate people in Panama I trust. He is honest and knows more about the market here in Panama than most. Kent goes out of his way to make sure you get the right information about buying property in Panama
“Kent is one of those guys who knows his stuff, and wont sugar coat the bare facts, let alone allow his customers to walk into something without knowing the whole truth. In an industry fraught with deception, deceit, and unethical behavior, Kent stands above as the guy who will lead you through all the garbage. He has the knowledge and experience in his field that is beyond compare. If you want the straight truth, and a guy who has a high level of business ethics and professionalism, Kent is your man. I have worked with Kent for over 4 years and know that we will continue to work together for many more.”
“Kent is an excellent hands on manager of my properties who gives me a great deal of peace of mind as a foreign investor.”
“Kent is a smart, dynamic and energetic businessman. I knew him growing up. He comes from a wonderful family, has a good heart, and succeeds at everything he puts his mind to.”
“We have known Kent for 3 years when we first started looking for real estate in Panama. He was very knowledgeable regarding the real estate market. He always acted in a professional manner and we had total trust in what he did and said. He was very patient and never “pushy” which we do not see often in realtors. We have since become friends as we had numerous “events” take place while trying to complete our transaction. Throughout the process Kent was able to get us through and over some of the hurdles we faced. We have no hesitation whatsoever recommending Kent for any real estate questions or transactions that may come your way.”
“I first got to know Kent Davis while working in the real estate here in Panama. After I had met him a few times, his name started popping up in newspaper articles and newsletters and Kent seems to have forged a reputation for hard work and trustworthiness in a market where both are lacking from many in the profession. Kent is a highly organized and motivated individual who I would gladly recommend to anyone looking to hire or work with him as he is quickly becoming one of the leaders in the real estate market here in Panama
“Finding a home it’s a mix between a journey and a dream, everybody could say that, … but finding a home in Panamá city, it could become an entirely adventure. Fortunately enough I took advice from some trusted friends in P&G to get in contact with Kent and the dream turned into a reality. I continue to be amazed of how challenging is the market in Panamá. It takes a while to understand it and get to the point when you make a call, “yes I am ready to buy this condo!” And Kent saved me massive time in this phase. However, what emerged as a surprise and very few comment on, is the level of energy needed to put the wheels in motion, to really make things happen and this is when Kent became my best ally…Señor Davis, this is when I understood why you messenger text says: Real Estate is 24 / 7… my gratitude for all the support in the past 3 months.”
Juan Jose, Mexico
“My fiancée and I had the pleasure of working with Kent while looking for a rental in Panama City. Kent was very attentive to our needs and showed as a variety of options. Once we had decided, he helped us with in negotating the rental agreement. We could not be happier with his professionalism, level of service, and results.”
“Kent has the qualifications which I value in any business relationship. Being straight-forward, hard-working, reliable and has the ability to make a deal happen. I would happily recomend him for any real estate transaction in Panama.”
“I’ve been working with Kent for almost four years now, and he’s done a fantastic job for me. He helped me find the right rental properties and has managed to keep them occupied for almost three years running. I would recommend him to anyone even CONSIDERING something in Panama.”
Gary, North Carolina
“We had looked all over the world for the perfect vacation home for our family, and ended up choosing Panama because it had the perfect combination of beaches and city. We ended up working with Kent because he was very knowledgeable about the area and did a great job showing us lots of options. He negotiated on our behalf and ended up helping us find the perfect beach get away! Thanks Kent!”
“Moving to Panama was a complex decision from Day 1. After spending a week “house hunting” aka bouncing from agent to agent, seeing place after place, and not even one we liked… we went home exhausted, stressed, and overall, frustrated. After doing some internet research on real estate in Panama, we came across the website and some articles by Kent. For once in the entire process, we actually felt we had some clarification. We had a better perspective of the market, and felt in a much better place to purchase. All this before even speaking to him! We contacted him directly after, and the clarity grew. We spent some time discussing our wants and needs through the internet, and when we arrived to Panama, Kent had compiled a list, and we found and fell in love with our home in just a weekend! We’ve recommended him to everyone we know, and he has never disappointed. From our experience, by far the best realtor in Panama!”
Mithun and Nikki, Toronto
“Finding the right residence in Panama is not the easiest task I’ve faced. Finding the right residence for a non-Spanish speaking person is daunting. I have relocated myself and family in The States, Europe and Asia. Panama is different. I feel fortunate to have met Panama Equity. In reality, I met Kent Davis. He took the time to get to know who we were and what Panama City really had to offer. Having now relocated successfully to Panama, both my wife and I believe we made the right choice.Kent helped us make that choice and stayed involved from Day 1 to completion, even during his honeymoon.”
Bob, New York
“Kent and Carlos, Thanks a bunch for selling both of my properties in record time. You guys are first class – and a darn pleasure to work with…. I’ll be in touch when I’m ready to reenter the market thereIt’s been a great team effort getting this deal done!
“It’s been a great team effort getting this deal done! Carlos has been fantastic~ patient, professional, and a great attitude! Il ook forward to meeting you as well, Kent
Rick, Costa Rica
“Doing business in Panama requires patience, an understanding of local culture and the ‘way of doing things’, all of which Kent has in ample doses. Kent’s professionalism and determination to find solutions to problems proved to be key to the closing of this sale. Without his help dealing with local lawyers, bureaucracy and reams of paperwork there is no way that we would have been able to successfully conclude this transaction in the time that we did. Sometimes in real estate transactions certain aspects can be out of one’s control, however Kent always maintained a calm and positive attitude to everything which was greatly appreciated and facilitated the successful conclusion of this sale
I had used several other brokers without success. I found they were more or less order takers and showed little creativity or follow up when prospective buyers came along.
Panama Equity was a refreshing change. I found them aggressive and professional in a friendly and personal manner. Kent Davis and his people are very knowledgeable of the real estate business and of the local environment here in Panama. They got fast results and stayed with the deal until it was fully closed. I was very pleased with the experience
“My wife and I had the privilege of working with Layla in locating our new home in Panama City. Layla was very professional and patient with us as we explored several areas and properties. She is knows the market very well and kindly guided us in our search. I highly recommend both Layla personally and those at Panama Equity with whom I have dealt for the past eight months
Richard, Abu Dhabi
From our first trip to Panama to explore real estate investment, Kent was extremely helpful and knowledgeable.He showed us a wide variety of properties, and pointed out subtle differences in quality that we may have missed on our own.
After meeting some expats in our unrelated travels and socializing around Panama City, it became apparent that Kent was very well known with most of the English speaking expats that we met.Everyone commented positively on his reputation and hard work. Now that we have completed a successful transaction for a beautiful unit in Trump Ocean Club – I can give my full endorsement.
I will continue to work with Kent for possible future investments, and in fact – we have retained him to manage the Rental unit that we recently purchased. Everything is working out great. Nothing but good news. Thanks Kent and Emily!
We would like to express our sincerest appreciation and gratitude for guiding us through the purchase of a condo in Panama City, Panama. Although our research determined it is very safe for non-resident foreigners to purchase investment property, it was nevertheless a daunting mission. Not only did you help us find the “perfect” property – one that we set out as our goal, but you managed the purchase/sale along with the lawyer you recommended in a quick, efficient manner.
We also appreciate your proactive calls and updated e-mails on the process, it really took the stress out of the purchase and without hesitation our next investment property will be under your guidance! Thanks again.
Layla: Tim and I were most appreciative of your services – we really enjoyed you and the condo units you showed us were just exactly what we wanted to see. We also enjoyed your personality and were very impressed by your communication skills and continuing efforts for fluency in English! Customer service is always most important to me and yours was top notch.
Tim and Carol, Colorado
Layla, I just wanted to send you a note to say thank you so much for the tour yesterday. You were fantastic and really got a feel for what we are looking for even with the short notice. You gave us lots to think about and when we make a decision with respect to renting we let you know. This visit has been informative including all the great information you gave us yesterday. Thank you so much and I look forward to working with you in the near future.
Robin and Tom, Ontario
Tedd, I wanted to make sure you know how appreciative we are of your assistance. We expected a good realtor based on our initial research. After working with you, you are far more than that. Your attention to detail and strategies to work with someone as non-trusting as Richard was to you and Berta, made this deal possible. In my book that makes you an absolute Pro. Perhaps more importantly, I believe we have a solid foundation for an ongoing friendship. You are the type of people I enjoy spending time with. I am really looking forward to getting to know you even better and will recommend your talents to anyone who cares to listen.
Marv B, Alberta
I just wanted to thank you for putting us together with Layla. We did end up finding a condo that we are really excited about buying. I know we made it a little tough on Layla with what our initial “must haves” were, but she remained upbeat and continued to find properties for us to look at. As our “must haves” changed Layla continued to find condo’s for us to look at and in the end we found an apartment on a high floor, in a good building, with great views that can be easily converted from a one bedroom into a two bedroom apartment.
Thank you so much.
Layla made this such a great experience that we will be recommending her to any of our friends that follow us to Panama. I know we will be seeking her services to rent the apartment in the future and to help us with our next purchase.

I would like to express my gratitude to Panama Equity Real Estate for providing excellent rental services and agents. Manuel Bravo assisted my wife and I in leasing a condo in Panama City. Manuel was professional in every way possible. He quickly responded to our emails, answered all of our many questions, and completed the leasing process at the Trump BayLoft Apartments.
Manuel Bravo provided a great tour of the Trump Ocean Club during our first visit to Panama City. We knew we had found our future home, rental agency, and rental agent. When we were ready to sign a lease at the Baylofts, Manuel worked to make it happen.
We are very happy at the Bayloft Apartments. We are very grateful to Panama Equity and Manuel Bravo.
Buenos días Manuel, Finalizada la operación de venta de nuestro apartamento del edificio Miramar, deseamos expresarte nuestro agradecimiento por la delicada y fina atención profesional que desplegaste durante todo el proceso de la transacción. Fue un verdadero placer trabajar contigo y Panamá Equity. Cordiales saludos,
Una, Jorge y Luis Carlos. Panama
Layla did an amazing job and one of the few people that was always there before the appointment time and extremely patient with us. We thought we were punctual but we can learn from her. You have a real asset with Layla on your team. This endorsement is completely unsolicited.
Bobby, Los Angeles
I just wanted to take this opportunity to share with you the details concerning our recent purchase of our condo in Rio Mar. Mr. Carlos Camano, our real estate advisor, is a stand up kind of guy. From being on time for appointments to showing us 6 different projects in one day to never giving up on us when our first bank did (thank goodness he found us another bank that understood us) – we salute you for having such an exceptional professional working in your organization. If it hadn’t been for Carlos we wouldn’t have gotten our dream condo. His knowledge, excellent language skills and local expertise were invaluable to us. We have no issue in recommending Carlos and your firm to other people seeking real estate in Panama.
Mr and Mrs C from Canada
We can do more business but only if Layla is part of it… She’s just a fantastic asset in your organization. Take care of her… She’s a rare gem.
Sr. Luis from Argentina
Just a quick note to let you know that we have enjoyed our relationship with your company, especially because of your agent Jonathan Clay. Jonathon’s attention to detail and his persistence kept things moving without a snag. There was a bit of “hand holding” that needed to be done and he did it well. Jonathon was a pleasure to work with, he remained calm and personable through out the process and I believe it was him that made this happen. I can recommend Panama Equity to anyone based on my experience with Jonathon.
Carl and Cheri, USA
Just wanted to loop back and personally thank you for looping me in with the gem of a person, your Agent Andrea Cooper, in my search for my first property in Panama! It’s been wonderful getting to know her and meet her in person last weekend when I came to see one property I had in mind. I find Andrea to be diligent, professional, detailed, and extremely knowledgeabe…all great assets to your company and to us, clients!
Dr D in NYC
We would certainly have no hesitation in recommending Panama Equity, and if anyone needs a recommendation your company is the one we will give. Your articles on real estate in Panama really helped us to know from the outset that we were in good hands, and this was further demonstrated by the professionalism and efficiency of Carlos, Michell and attorney Roberto. We have had a bit of a bumpy ride since investing off plan in Panama in 2007, not with Playa Blanca Resort (our personal experiences with them were always good) but with the Nikki Beach next door that never happened – that was very hard for a while.
So, thank you for a smooth and pleasurable end to our Panama adventure. We felt we were in very good hands with your company and your team. Warm regards
