Post #1 of 7
Have been coming down to PV for years, and finally decided to buy a place.
I spent two different trips with local realtors who either did not show up, or the office was closed.
When someone did show up, they showed me properties that were either out of my price range or not what I wanted, TOTAL waste of time.
While skiing in Tahoe, I saw an add on the resort network for Sandcastle Dreams Real Estate and Paradise Mortgage, I figured I would give PV another shot.
They had a "fly and buy" program, I put $1500.00 in an escrow account, they paid for airfare, hotel, etc. AND picked me up at the airport. I had been left at the airport on the previous two attempts.
If you do not buy, you have a $1500.00 vacation, if you buy the $1500.00 goes in to the offer.
Danny Lopez (realtor) and Jonas Soder (mortgage) both met me at the airport, got me to my hotel, then took me out to lunch to find out what I wanted.
We met the following morning for breakfast and reviewed six properties they had picked out, ALL were in my price range and location!
By the end of the day, I had financing and an offer in on a place at the Marina!!
I can not say enough about the great customer service I received from these guy's.
They are located in Marina Vallarta, by the lighthouse, sharing an office with Chappy Charters.
