About John Turley


John D. Turley, Belize



I live on an island, life is good. 

I’m a native of Colorado, who has been a full-time resident of Ambergris Caye, Belize for over 11 years, I came to Belize with my family for the tranquil quality of life and found a tremendous business opportunity.

As CEO and Co-Owner of RE/MAX Caribbean & Central America, I have oversight of approximately 60 independently owned and operated RE/MAX offices in the Caribbean & Central America (CCA) Region. I am the Founder and Broker of RE/MAX Island Real Estate, with offices in Ambergris Caye and Caye Caulker.

I have been involved in over 1,500 real estate transactions in the Ambergris Caye market over the last 11 years, far more than any other broker (or office) in the market. Fortunately, I am the #1 RE/MAX Associate in the Caribbean and Central America for 5 consecutive years, from 2010-2014, before turning his focus to real estate partnerships and structuring investment opportunities.

In 2013, I was RE/MAX Broker/Owner of the Year.

Through my relationships on the island, and of the region, along with my connections to local government officials I have an unfair advantage in this rapidly emerging market. I’m the first, and only American, to serve as Director on the Board of Directors of the Belize Real Estate Association. I served as a Board member continuously since 2010 and I’ve been RE/MAX International’s #1 Broker in the Caribbean and Latin America and in 2013, was their #2 international broker worldwide.
