Established in 2008, Live and Invest Overseas is the vision of Publisher Kathleen Peddicord. I am proud to be among the contributors to her online venture just before the launch in 2008 and you can see the full list of experts and contributors here. I am inspired by the international real estate and Live and Invest Overseas was one of the reasons why I invested recently in developing my real estate agency as aRE/MAX franchise.
Kathleen Peddicord has covered the live and invest overseas beat for more than 25 years and is considered the world’s foremost authority on overseas retirement. She has traveled to more than 50 countries, invested in real estate in 17, established businesses in 7, renovated historic properties in 6, and educated her children in 4.
Kathleen has moved children, staff, enterprises, household goods, and pets across three continents, from the East Coast of the United States to Waterford, Ireland…then to Paris, France…and, most recently, to Panama City, where she, her husband Lief Simon, and their young son currently make their home and base their Live and Invest Overseas business.
Kathleen writes a weekly retire-overseas blog for U.S. News & World Reports and is regularly quoted by The New York Times, Money magazine, the AARP, and beyond. She has written innumerable books (including a new one for Penguin Books released in March 2010), reports, and essays on where and how you can escape the retirement-tromping economy at home and live like royalty on a modest budget…invest for profits overseas ahead of the crowds…and secure your dream retirement in the world’s best destinations.
Thanks to her years of travels and adventures abroad, Kathleen has been able to assemble an unparalleled network of global contacts, colleagues, friends, experts, resources, expats, and advisors. This team, with many decades of combined experience, is on the move continuously in search of new opportunity. Their insider, from-the-scene reports, dispatches, tips, recommendations, discoveries, and insights are delivered free to Overseas Opportunity Letter readers daily.

One thought on “Which are the Top Retirement Havens for 2011?”
I love Kathleen’s videos, articles, and opinions. I’ve read and commented on many of her posts and love reading about her life abroad. I have to agree with everything discussed about Thailand in the video. The people are welcoming, the cost of living is cheap, and the healthcare is great. I’ve also found that legal services in Thailand are excellent. Experienced Thailand lawyers that speak English are readily available to help with investing in Thai real estate, visa issues, and marriage or divorce issues. The lawyers here also help with other matters and are easy to find. I think the accessibility of legal services should be considered when ranking which countries are best for long-term living or retirement because you never know when you might need a good lawyer or need to interpret the laws of a foreign country. Other than Thailand, Kathleen has also gotten me interested in Panama.
