With their daughter Megan graduating from college and their son Colin not too far behind, Greg and Pam Rzonca can see an empty nest on their horizon. For the next phase of their lives, they're looking to escape from harsh Illinois winters and snowbird in the warmth of Costa Rica. Greg and Pam want to own a property in beautiful Manuel Antonio that will be a family escape for years, but it will need to double as a rental vacation property when they're home in the States. The kids are eager to tag along on the search with real estate agent Scott Williams, but their two cents could potentially push Greg's million dollar budget into the stratosphere.
