Panama is competitive in the tourism sector and is ranked second in per capita foreign investment in Latin America. We are proud to enter this beautiful country under Rafael Alejandro Gangi’s established leadership.”

According to Gangi, his team has more than 10 years’ experience in the international market and is trained to guide clients on how to capitalize on their investments. “Our philosophy is based on an integrated vision of excellence and professionalism in our services,” he said. “We believe that the global reach of the Sotheby’s International Realty brand will help us showcase the fine property we represent to a broad base of consumers worldwide.”

The Sotheby’s International Realty network currently has nearly 14,000 sales associates located in approximately 680 offices in 49 countries and territories worldwide.
