Rich Varney

Rich Varney

Real Estate Agent

I fell in love with Mexico and its people when I moved here in 2009 with my wife, Lizzie, to start a new life. Being frustrated with having no Spanish skills when I first arrived to Mexico, I was determined to be able to communicate with the Mexican community. Thanks to a great deal of patience and persistence, I’m now bilingual. I understand first-hand the challenges and, at times, the frustrations that foreigners experience when coming to live and settle in Mexico. Besides my bilingual skills, I bring to the table a strong background in customer service, sales, product management, and market research. These skills, combined with 10 years living as a resident in Mexico, have given me a unique insight to life at Lakeside and the tools necessary to navigate the real estate market successfully. Whether it is guiding and advising our clients to find their ideal property or assisting and serving clients to sell their property, I am here to help. Don’t forget to check out my YouTube Channel where I upload weekly videos on buying Real Estate in Mexico. https ://www.youtube.com/c/RichVarney

Ricardo Heckert

Ricardo Heckert

Real Estate Agent

I was born in Vancouver, British Columbia where I studied Business Administration and Marketing. After 28 years of service related jobs I moved to Lake Chapala at the young age of 47. Loving my life here I began blogging about my lifestyle which led me to develop websites dedicated to helping people expatriate to Lake Chapala. Becoming a Real Estate Agent was a natural transition in assisting people make successful moves to Lakeside. Most recently I developed a Retirement Seminar that has met with great success, followed by co-founding Group Seminars on Retiring / Buying / Living at Lake Chapala. In teaming up with Michaela Sirbu, we provide you with superlative service and all the honest and straightforward information that you need to Live Your Best Life at Lake Chapala.

TESTIMONIAL
When we came to Ajijic to do the seminar with Ricardo and Michaela we had no idea what to expect. We did end up purchasing a home and Ricardo and Michaela did EVERYTHING they promised and MORE. This is truly amazing wherever you are! Now it is several months later and they are still a big help. We could not have made the transition to Mexico as easily as we did without the help of Ricardo and Michaela. “Bob H., USA”

Michaela Sirbu

Real Estate Agent

I moved to Ajijic in 2010 from London, Ontario after attending a Focus on Mexico group tour. After 12 years of working in Air Traffic Services in Canada, I ended up with severe back pain which I was able to heal naturally with Pilates, Yoga and healthy food. Over the next 20 years I helped thousands of people develop healthier lifestyles and stronger bodies using Pilates, Yoga, Theta Healing, and improved diets. Ajijic is one of the most beautiful places on earth, a place where dreams come true! I am thrilled to have the opportunity to share my knowledge of the Ajijic-Lake Chapala area to help others find their perfect home and build their dream life here. Come visit Ajijic – and stay to live your best life ever!
