Granada Will Miss Don Víctor

December 4, 2009

Dear Nica Times:

We were recently saddened to learn of the passing of Granada real estate pioneer and beloved local resident Don Víctor Robleto, 76, who died Nov. 23 after months of failing health.

Don Víctor was an anciano who was working daily even when his hearing and his memory were failing him. Even then, he was out on the street looking for business.

He was the first person that Terry and I met when we came to Granada and he found us the property that we bought and turned into Casa San Francisco Hotel.

He was always a gentleman. When I first started selling real estate, Don Víctor and I would go on our bikes to see houses.

He always insisted on carrying my bike up the stairs into the house so it wouldn’t get stolen.

Even then he was in his mid 70s but strong with an indigenous heritage. He was well-loved by his family and friends.

During his last six months or so he was not able to be out and about as he had a bad condition with lots of swelling in his arms and legs.

But when I went to visit him in his house, he was still advising me about properties for sale.

He was a real sweetheart and will be greatly missed.
