Secure Your own Piece of Paradise

Article by Adi Arifin

I have been living in metropolitans where spent my days in high-rise office building, nights and weekends in a small flat, and the rest in the car cought in hours of traffic jams.Changing my career into a contracted specialist has change my life, I travelled the world to meet clients, work inside hotel rooms, or lock myself in my apartment for long projects.When I spent a week of holiday in Bali, I talked with someone in a Cafe and get something inspiring. I changed the plan from laying back on the beach to hunting a decent piece of land to build a small house on. I spent the days contacting real estate agents, which is surprisingly quite numerous, and follow their sales to inspect properties. Different brand, different owner’s nationality, different style, but there was one thing in common, all sells nothing more but lies. They do not really “know” the property status, they have never met the owner, they just brought me to a piece of lands with a humble “for sale” sign.I was nearly frustrated when I finally tried the most prestigious real estate agent in Bali named Exotiq Real Estate. It was the first one I saw, really. But they are so up market that I did not even have a gut to stop by. Strangefully the salesperson, office manager, and the owner himself who greeted me had just waived my original impression away. They are friendly and professional.They advised me in not only piece of lands (out of their huge portfolio of premium properties) which fits my preference, legal status, purchasing procedure, but also the detail how those lands would fit my purposes, i.e. whether the area covered by broadband internet access, best internet service providers around, where to get IT supplies in town, etc.I finally secured quite a large pice of land, a bit secluded off one of Bali’s popular resort town, surrounded by ricefield steeping down to the beach. Not a beachfront, but the sea sparkling in the distance looks fabulous.When I started to built my home, I basically did not know whom to talk. So I went back to the agent. They told me that it was not their speciality. Unlike other real estate agents who offered anything for money, Exotiq Real Estate specializing themselves only to securing the property. However, they introduced me with some people to start with.Now I had a little wooden cabin on the land, connected to the world and my servers in the US with broadband internet connection.I would suggest everybody with my kind of profession to do the same. What do you guys expecting by staying in a packed apartment in the city? Here you will have serenity and quietness for you to work, tropical beauty and beaches, and if you want to have a little fun, only if you want to, just go to down town Seminyak with its heart pumping nightlife.
