I have known Alejandra for six years and know her to be a very honest and good person so when she became a realtor and we were ready to sell our first home, she was the only realtor we considered.  Although our house sold very fast, I knew she would do what it took to help it sell if it took a long time.  She also was so good taking us to see different houses to buy and never told me I was crazy for liking different houses – although I seem to fall in love with parts of any house I see and can imagine making virtually any house better!  Alejandra is also very involved in the community as a volunteer and support for different organizations and knows the various areas of lakeside very well. This seems to me to be a really important strength for a realtor to have.I cannot recommend her strongly enough.  I would tell everyone to use Alejandra for their real estate needs.

From the first meeting, we felt like Thomas was more a friend than a business associate.  He listened to what our needs were, and for over a year until we actually moved to Mexico.

Recently we had the opportunity to work with your company in the purchase of our home in La Reserva and we feel compelled to comment on the outstanding service and care we received.

We would highly recommend Thomas because of his easy-going nature, his knowledge of the community, his honesty, his vast contacts, and the support he has from his real estate office

John & Barbara Baker
Buyer

We found Thomas to be informative, resourceful, honest, patient, perceptive to clients needs, and never ever pushing for a sale.  He was our guide.  We sold what was to become our home to ourselves!  It would have been fine with him if we hadn’t bought a house.

Julie Hughes
Buyer

Thomas was very professional in helping us with the sale. He is honest and responsive to our requests and questions. We highly recommend that anyone seeking to buy or sell a house,  to contact Thomas.

Thomas is more than just an excellent realtor.  Not only is he the best agent we have ever worked with, he and his wonderful family have become our very good friends.  He readily shares his knowledge and experience of the Lake Chapala area.

Scott & Paula Young

Thomas is the nicest person; kind and considerate, upbeat, fun, easy to be around; and easy to communicate with. Such a quality individual.

While I can not comment on all of the realtors at Lake Chapala Real Estate, I can tell you of my experience wirh Dwight McLelland.

My only relationship with Dwight is that he is a fellow Calgarian- so my opinion is pretty unbiased. I met Dwight on a recent visit to the Chapala Area as I was looking for a long term rental. Although Lake Chapala Real Estate does not handle rentals, Dwight spend a day and a half showing me the various neighborhoods in Lakeside.

We also looked at several properties tha would be in our price range, just to give us an idea, once we are ready to purchase.

Of course, Dwight is our first choice as a realtor. Another bonus is that his warmth and kindness soon turn clients into friends.

Not only did he show me around, he told me of the best places to purchase everything from groceries to vehicles. Hes was a great source of information as he shared his experiences and suggestions in relocation.

I can’t wait until we move there!

Dear Thomas Hellyer,

The decision and journey of purchasing a new home is often filled with tremendous excitement, and of course some apprehension as you work through the end-to-end process of the purchase.  Buying in a foreign country quadruples all the feelings and emotions!
My husband and I went into the process knowing we had to have an open mind, expecting there would be surprises, unknowns, and challenges we hadn’t planned on, etc.  We knew we had to be flexible and just keep an open mind.  What we didn’t expect was Sherry Carter!!
Sherry was a wealth of knowledge throughout the entire process.  Sherry knows the area, she knows the real estate market and she knows the real estate purchasing process inside & out.  Her understanding of the unique nuances of purchasing a home in Mexico vrs. purchasing in the US was so helpful and invaluable to us.
She showed us many homes and when we found “the one” and were ready to make an offer, Sherry literally explained every  single detail of every single step throughout the entire process.  During the 3 weeks from the time our offer was accepted and the time we closed on the house (which we did remotely), my husband and I kept saying to each other “okay, this is going too smoothly”.  We kept preparing ourselves for something to go wrong or not go according to plan.  It never happened.  Everything Sherry explained and did went exactly as she said it would.
Sherry made appointments for the; home inspection, and Notaria, introduced us to a an excellent property manager which we are using.  She was incredibly helpful every step of the way.  She was so patient in answering all our questions, and we had lots of questions!
There really aren’t enough positive adjectives to describe Sherry.   We feel so blessed that she was our realtor and and are so appreciative to her and Chapala Realtors for making our San Antonio Tlayacapan home purchase the easiest home purchase we have ever had.
Thank you Thomas for the excellent services of your office.  Mark and I are so very appreciative.
Sincerely,
Mark and Rebecca D’Alleva
