My name is Jocelyn Ucedo and I am a licensed real estate agent in Puerto Rico. (Lic#V3493)
I grew up in New York, where I began my professional career in the areas of licensing, international sales and marketing in New York City’s garment center- working for major fashion brand labels. I lived and traveled throughout Europe, prior to establishing myself in the Dominican Republic in 2004- where I co-founded a Resort Real Estate company, establishing myself as one of the leading agents in the highly competitive Dominican property market, delivering high-quality service to developers, property managers, ex-pats, snowbirds, and locals alike.
I have now expanded my knowledge and interest in the Puerto Rico Real Estate market while being able to contribute to the island's development and recovery.

The close proximity of the Caribbean islands makes it perfect for island-hopping.
Why the move to PuertoRico?
As the collapse of the housing market began in Punta Cana, due to harsh new tax laws, low occupancy rates and poor security, we set our eyes on Puerto Rico.
My husband and I wanted to secure a home in the U.S. and live in a place that assured us the security and healthcare most underdeveloped countries do not- but we also wanted to continue having a laid-back Caribbean lifestyle, enjoying yearlong warm weather. As a U.S. Territory, Puerto Rico has this- and some excellent tax breaks too!
If you’re looking for the comforts of home—quality housing, fine dining, recreational opportunities, and more—Puerto Rico offers them. You’ll find plenty of great places to live and do business. From the California-style beach town of Rincon to historic Old San Juan, Puerto Rico offers a variety of excellent towns and communities to suit almost any taste.
No Passport Needed!
Puerto Rico is a combination of history, diverse culture and heritage. Full of beautiful landscapes, warm people, fascinating attractions and intriguing cities. Another advantage: U.S. citizens don’t have to go through customs when traveling between Puerto Rico and the U.S. mainland – a big-time saver.
Here is a list of my personal reasons to have moved to the island...asides the fact that my parents have retired here:
- Amazing weather!
- Real estate and cost of living are affordable.
- Access to competent health care.
- It's a place where the money we spend matters and contributes to an economy that needs it.
- Phone service and internet are rock solid (when no hurricanes are nearby 😀).
