 We had a conversation with Christie, one of the owners. And to be Frank, it was a conversation and a debrief worthy of first place on this list. Christie treated us like she would a million dollar buyer (we assume). Even though she has a team of 7 people to manage and deals of her own to close, she spent time explaining what sets Mexico Life Realty apart from other brokerages. But really, she didn't need to. We felt it just in the way we were treated.

When we asked them what the biggest mistake someone could make when buying in PV, Christie explained that a buyer should look up the AMPI (Asociacion Mexicana de Profesionales Inmobiliarios) accreditation of the company they're thinking of working with and speak to past clients, rather than pay attention to facebook recommendations, which can be popularity contests or paid referrals (agencies pay active FB users to recommend their agencies).

We thought this a very logical and insightful response that could help people save thousands if not millions.

And while we may be biased on this last point, this firm is owned by Canadians. And who doesn't like polite Canadians?!

Shirley at Mexico Life was excellent, very supportive, full of information and answered all my questions right away. I felt very confident and supported making this purchase. I highly recommend this company. - Linda M

 

I wish I could give John & Christie 6 stars! We sold our home in Bucerias through them and the great team at Mexico Life Realty. Our home sale was not a straight forward simple sale and had many hiccups and difficulties but John & Christie handled everything like the true professionals they are. They explained and guided us through it all. They handled the difficulties exquisitely and sometimes we didn’t even know there was a problem on things because they handled them so well. They have been in the business long enough to be experts in handling the difficult situations. Without a doubt I would recommend John, Christie and the Mexico Life Realty team to anyone looking to sell or purchase realty in the Puerto Vallarta bay and surrounding areas. - Michael G

 After spending some time on the phone with Moray, we came to learn about one of the oldest Real Estate Brokerages in Puerto Vallarta. His father started the company in the 50s and Moray has been running the company since the 80s. One of the things that sets this company apart from other Puerto Vallarta Brokerages is the consistency in their honesty and perseverance. While many people make these types of claims when we call and interview them, we tend to believe Moray. After all, for them to be a subsidiary of Berkshire Hathaway, they would have had to go through extreme scrutiny before said company would ever consider a partnership.

For those not familiar with Berkshire Hathaway, this is the company founded by the great Investors, Warren Buffet and the late Charlie Munger. These two gentlemen were extremely skilled in finding quality enterprises and teams and investing in them for the long term.

Pros

 First of all; we love that JRE is open on the weekends. Know that all the winners on this list truly are great, regardless of their position on this list. But if you can only find time to go see houses on weekends, this is the team for you.

We spoke with Mariana, who was very easy going and broke down their operations for us. She explained that they have 8 buyer reps and their representatives only work with one client at a time in order to ensure personal service.

We liked this company's attention to their google page and social media. They care about building and maintaining a solid and visible reputation. In our experience, these are not only the companies to work with today, but for years to come, as they are focused on the long-term, not short-term wins.

Pros

Spanish and English spoken

Solid online presence - not hiding behind their website

Customer Reviews

Ok so, you’re a US citizen and want to buy a pre-construction condo in Mexico during a pandemic!! I’m here to tell you that it was one of the most challenging adventures we have ever embarked on and we could not have done it without the help of our amazing realtor, Hector Garcia (and we’re not first time home buyers). From the very start he was hands on in every aspect of the buying process, always answered our calls and questions with in minuets no matter what day or time. Honestly, we could not have found or bought our slice of paradise without him!! We would definitely recommend him to anyone looking to buy in Puerto Vallarta or surrounding areas even during a pandemic!! 5 STARS Hector. Thank you so much. G & M - Gary G

 

I loved the service I received, from start to finish, I highly recommend it! - Kailina C
