Based on 94 reviews
We had an exceptional experience working with Kim O'Connell of Mexico Real Estate Group for the purchase of our condo in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. Being first-time buyers in a foreign country, we were initially unfamiliar with the intricacies of the real estate market and the process involved. However, Kim made everything incredibly easy and straightforward.From the very beginning, Kim's responsiveness stood out. She was always quick to reply to our emails and phone calls, addressing every question and concern we had, no matter how minor. Her consistent communication kept us informed and reassured throughout the entire process.Kim's deep knowledge of the Playa del Carmen real estate market was invaluable. She explained each step of the process in detail, demystifying aspects we were unfamiliar with. Her ability to break down complex information into understandable terms helped us feel more confident and prepared.Kim also demonstrated remarkable patience and attentiveness in understanding our needs and preferences. She took the time to show us a variety of properties, providing detailed information and honest feedback about each one. Her dedication to finding a condo that matched our criteria was evident, and she never pressured us to make a quick decision.One of the most significant challenges we faced was understanding the legal and procedural differences in buying real estate in Mexico compared to our home country. Kim made this transition seamless by coordinating with local professionals, including attorneys, property managers, etc.Kim made our condo purchase in Playa del Carmen an easy and enjoyable experience. Her responsiveness, expertise, and personalized approach turned what could have been a daunting process into a smooth and stress-free journey. We highly recommend Kim to anyone looking to buy property in the area. Thank you, Kim, for your outstanding service and for guiding us through our first international real estate purchase!
