Work with a Master to Get There Faster

April 26, 2017

Hi Everyone, 

I’m known as the Lake Chapala Guy. I’ve lived here for 15 years full time and for most of that time I’ve been an “Exclusive Buyer’s Only Realtor”.  I do not list homes for sale here. I make a small percentage of any commission paid by the seller to his listing agency for producing a buyer no matter which firm listed the property.

So, who would you rather have looking after your best interests: The listing agency and agent  who are duty bound by there contract with the seller to represent the seller’s best interest.. or me; the only area Realtor who is an “Exclusive Buyer’s Only Realtor” and who does not accept listings ?

As a former Attorney at Law in Dallas (15 years),  35 year Dallas Police Office (honorably retired),  and former Texas Real Estate Broker  (in active status), I understand  my ethical responsibility to my clients.

Now in Semi retirement mode here at Lake Chapala as a Realtor for the last 14 years plus  I’m blessed to have helped many retirees to find there place in the sun on the shores of safe, beautiful and affordable Lake Chapala,  Mexico. I it here, I love the culture and I love my Mexican wife here.  

So, about 4 years ago I decided to take the plunge and become a Mexican citizen. So, I now am a dual citizen of the USA and Mexico. I love both my Country of Birth and my Adopted Country.  It gives me a unique perspective and I can put both perspectives to use for you as your Buyer’s Only Realtor when buying from a Mexican seller or a foreign seller.

Before closing this post I want to share another way for you to “get a head start” on learning if our area of Mexico may be right for you. I’m the proud author of “How to Live a Caviar Lifestyle on a Tuna Fish Pension at Safe, Beautiful & Affordable Lake Chapala, Mexico”.

It condenses over a decade of my life here  exploring the North Shore of Lake Chapala, it’s towns and villages and has earned a 5 STAR Rating.

Thanks for reading this post. Let me hear from you. Let me show you the area when you visit

All for now. Siempre tu amigo, Sid
