As buying Real Estate in a foreign country is easier said than done, I decided not to take the risk and venture out there on my own, but talk my project over with Rick and Alma instead. Right from the beginning, they proved to be extremely knowledgeable as well as helpful from start to finish and beyond: in fact, their expertise on the subject was and still is, in one word...impressive!
After having looked at several properties myself, it was obvious that in my particular case, I had to opt for The Marina Sol Resort in Cabo San Lucas, due to its facilities and excellent location...close to everything! Before long, Rick and Alma came up with quite an interesting opportunity and I immediately decided to give it "thumbs up!" First step, though, was Rick drawing up the Offer to Purchase, which was submitted to the seller. After some intense negotiations, the final purchase price was agreed upon and we began work on the purchase/closing documents, which in México can take some time! Rick and Alma, however, have an excellent lawyer who helped with coordinating everything. I didn’t have to do much aside from signing the paperwork. I cannot stress enough how important it was for me to have a reliable and trustworthy agent to act on my behalf, as well as competent lawyer!
By the way, I like to mention that Rick´s mother tongue is English and his wife, whose name is Alma, is Mexican and, thus, between the two of them, I had no worries about either the English or the Spanish languages! But that is not all: as I stated before, Rick and Alma run a very well organized property management business at The Marina Sol Resort. With me not living full time in Cabo, it´s very important to have a local, on-site property manager who cares about the property like it is their own. Each time I and/or my guests check in, the condo is immaculately clean and any needed repairs are done the same day or as soon as feasible—thanks to Rick and Alma’s "team."
In short: it is extremely important for me, as an absentee owner, to have a one-stop agent, not only during the whole purchase process, but also now to take care of my property. I´m pleased to be able to confirm that I found that in Rick and Alma. Congratulations to both for providing this outstanding service!
