About Abi Belize

Anything you might want to know about Abi Belize is found in this section.

My name is Abigail Marin and my business office and home are located in Corozal Town in Northern Belize where we are on the Bay and only 9 miles to the border of Mexico and the city of Chetumal. After being schooled in Corozal I studied Hospitality Management in the US where upon graduation I relocated to Cancun Mexico and worked in Public Relations for Royal Resorts. After 12 years my heart brought me back to Corozal to be with family and friends in the town I grew up and love. As a member of the Hospital Auxilary ,which is a non-profit organization assisting our local hospital in various needs, I met Charlotte Lanore(Charlotte’s Casa Belize). Charlotte and I became good friends and neighbors over the past 12 years. Since she has been in the real estate business for a number of years, but recently decided to retire, she has encouraged and mentored me to start my own business. Thus encouraged, I have recently formed and initiated ABI'S CASA BELIZE. Being Belizean myself, many of my friends in the area have asked for my assistance in selling or renting their properties. My inventory is ballooning to where I have offerings of residential waterfront and water-view, various commercial, small and large ranches and farms, hotels and operating businesses as well. We generally represent properties located in Corozal District which includes: Corozal Town, all surrounding villages, Consejo Shores area, north of Four Mile Lagoon and the Corozal Free Zone where there are business opportunities and Casinos for your entertainment pleasures.
