John Swanson, your Puerto Vallarta property expert

I have been buying and selling Puerto Vallarta real estate for over ten years and know the region’s real estate market for much longer than that. As a property owner here many times over I have personally walked the path you are pondering and have helped countless other people make their dreams come true. There are nuances to living and owning in Mexico and I can help you avoid the pratfalls. I am an experienced buyer and seller and an excellent tour guide when in comes to the neighborhoods of Puerto Vallarta!

Originally a licensed real estate agent in Seattle, Washington I have become a specialist in owning in Mexico in general and Puerto Vallarta specifically.

I successfully completed the Certified International Property Specialist courses. While I am not an attorney or an accountant, I am happy to share my experiences with you.
