About Nerissa C. Rivera
Josh and I live and work full-time for the family business; we’re a 5-star licensed electrical contractor based in Brooklyn, NYC. Josh spent a large part of his childhood in Puerto Rico (Bayamón) and has lots of family who now live in Hatillo and Arecibo. Nerissa was born in Guyana in South America (a former British colony), the only country other than Brazil, where the primary language is English (not Spanish). She grew up in Queens, NYC and is a city girl at heart. We met in college at Pace University in NYC, and have been married for almost 20 years (no kids but we have plenty of the 4-legged kind). In 2015, Josh’s then employer offered him the opportunity of a lifetime to work full time in Puerto Rico! Nerissa’s employer offered her a full-time work from home Recruiting gig so she was also able to continue working from PR. We spent most of 2015 living/working in Islote, Arecibo. In 2016, we started looking for and found our future retirement home, which we now lovingly call Casa Ocean Breeze. In September 2017, Hurricane Maria did a number on her but we were very blessed to quickly repair and/or replace what was damaged (sans FEMA). Now, every time we plan a new home project, we ask ourselves, "Is this Hurricane Maria proof"? ; - ) When we’re not working, Josh and I like to travel, especially to beach destinations. We enjoy spending time with family, friends and our fur children. We also love hiking, snorkeling, live concerts, reading and working around the house.

Why Nerissa C. Rivera chose Arecibo
We wanted to be close to family and an ocean view was a requirement. The first time we saw this house, it was nighttime and with just our cell phone flashlights in hand, we knew it was the one! This home was actually a bank foreclosure and we were very lucky to be in the right place at the right time!
What makes this House unique
You will fall in love with the amazing view and especially the refreshing ocean breezes constantly passing through, making you want to nap on a hammock or just sip on your morning coffee while you watch the iguanas and birds in the trees. It is very spacious and there is no doubt, you will find your own special corner to hang out in.
