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 have taken hundreds of hours of courses on such subjects as owning on the beach, bi-lingual contract writing, trusts, wills and current tax strategies. 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.

I have the expertise and experience to safely guide you through choosing your “place in the sun”, negotiating the best deal and ultimately help you enjoy your PV Lifestyle!

No two buyers are alike, so let's get to know you

As owner of Boardwalk Realty, I start by getting to know you, your tastes, your needs, and what you hope for from of your Puerto Vallarta home.  Only then can I do the best job of helping you find the right property for you. Our philosophy is to become expert listeners and tour guides to help you find the right spot for each individual. We have a saying “One has two ears and one mouth, use them accordingly”.
