Bryan and Dena Haines had a successful advertising business in Toronto, Canada. But the grueling pace and stress of their working lives forced them to consider a change. Once their daughter Drew turned nine years old, they put their relocation plan to work. They sold their home, their business and even their car to give themselves a nest egg. They could now relocate with some financial security while they hunted for a house, and a job. For the Haines, there would be no looking back! The Haines chose one of the most popular destinations for North American expatriates ? Cuenca, the capital city of Ecuador's Anzuay Province. The former Spanish colonial city offers a tropical spring like climate in the foothills of the Ecuadorian Andes. And the cost of living is remarkably low. Local real estate agent Egidio Tosi specializes in family relocations and he knows Cuenca's market will provide the Haines a choice of properties at a quarter the cost they would face in Canada. He carefully selects three locations ranging from basic to luxury. The Haines must balance their wish list against their budget; and for this young family the decision isn't easy; when House Hunters International arrives in Cuenca, Ecuador.
