Kim O’Connell is amazing! She was the best in assisting us with our transition out of the country. We talked to her months prior to moving and received us with open arms soon after arriving. We immediately got to looking at different units and she even suggested units we had not discussed and it turned out to be the best decision ever! She is so helpful in suggesting what is best for her clients no matter your situation. Her communication is 10/10 and provides everything in detail. While there can be a lot of uncertainty when purchasing real estate, Kim puts her all into providing you answers to the best of her ability. She also assisted us with the RFC process, recommendations, and makes herself available to help in any way she can. I highly recommended considering Kim!

David O'Connell is the best agent I found in Mexico . He responds quickly to my inquiries and gives me his honest opinion. He walks me through the whole process of owning property in Mexico and identifies areas where it has upside potential..I can't be happier with my house in Tao Ocean. We are still friends after the transaction and we get together every time I come back to Mexico. He's the best!

We are so thankful and extremely happy with the professional services that Kim O’Connell provided during our search for a rental property in PDC. Right from the beginning she was very attentive, and provided invaluable advice for us. We gave her a tough task in finding the perfect units, without having been able to come down to visit PDC in person.She constantly went above and beyond, and FaceTimed us while she was walking through potential units, sending photos, voice memos and messages. Her communication was top notch, responding to all our questions immediately. She thoroughly explained the process for how buying a property in Mexico works for a foreign buyer.After we selected our pre-build units, she continued to provide regular updates in the building progression, sending many walk-through videos.She also helped find a trustworthy lawyer, and met with the developer on our behalf to discuss details and wish lists.We are so happy with our new PDC units, and without Kim’s help we would have been lost.We would highly recommend Kim for anyone searching for a property in the Mayan Rivieria.Thanks again, and we are looking forward to enjoying our new vacation home!Ryan and Lauren

I live in Colorado with a vacation condo in Playa Del Carmen Mexico. I hired Pilar from Playa Real Estate Group to sell my Mexico condo. I was very impressed with her professionalism, communication and connections to a wonderful lawyer that made sure the closing process and documents were on the up and up.The entire process was smooth and closed on time, as promised.Thank you Playa Real Estate Group!
Kim assisted my husband and I navigate the process of finding our future retirement residence in Playa. Kim really got to know us—who we are, what our vibe is, and what we sought in a place to call home. From exploring properties, to negotiating price, we received frequent updates and regular contact throughout this journey and now at the time of delivery—all with tremendous care, professionalism, and attention to detail. We have, and will continue to recommend Kim to anyone who asks what the process looks like to buy in Mexico….15/10!!!

My partner and I worked with Jerry Aguero to find an amazing condo in Tulum. It can be a little scary buying a pre-build but Jerry gave us a lot of confidence and made sure we had the chance to meet with the developer. Jerry was fantastic to work with. He listened to our needs, scheduled video calls with us to discuss those needs, sent us property listings, responded to all our questions and all the listings I sent him. We did a 4 day villa and condo hunting trip in Tulum and Jerry made each day go smoothly, he even helped us line up accommodations for the trip.We visited 15 properties during that trip and in between viewings, Jerry showed us much of Tulum and his favourite places. Incredibly grateful to him for all of his hard work in helping us to make a decision and bringing in the right legal team to give us peace of mind. We ended up buying a condo from Bhodi Tulum and can't wait for it to be finished.I highly recommend this real estate company and Jerry for all your property needs in Tulum and Playa del Carmen and everywhere in between. Jerry is super friendly, trustworthy and seems to know everybody! You really cannot go wrong working with him. He has your back and will do what it takes to make sure you get a fair deal.

I was really impressed with this group. I came on short notice and Christie very quickly arranged several showings of attractive properties. She is not only a pleasure to work with but obviously very well informed about the various neighborhoods.
I highly recommend this brokerage and Jenni as an agent. They deserve 10 stars! Everything was perfect with our purchase.I am a real estate broker in the United States who wanted to purchase a condo in Playa Del Carmen with my husband. We needed a local expert and found Jenni.As a real estate broker in the United States, I am very picky and understand the level of quality good agents should provide their clients. Jenni is one of the BEST!She’s very responsive, listens attentively, was never trying to push us on one property versus the other. She truly had our best interest at heart.Above and beyond all of that, she’s very knowledgeable and explains the ins and outs of buying abroad very clearly.And finally, she’s so much fun to work with. she’s backed by a very reputable brokerage. Ten stars ⭐️ from me.

I am writing this review to personally say thank you to Marisol who works for this company! I have dealt with Marisol since early 2021 and she has been nothing less than exceptional! She has gone above and beyond with many queries which I might have, guiding me through the entire purchasing process of a condo in PlayaCar (AWA) and has always made sure to make me feel at ease regarding my current situation! A true asset to this company! 5*

Working with Tracy has been truly exceptional. From the outset, I communicated my requirements, and she exceeded all expectations by delivering more than I could have ever imagined. She consistently went the extra mile, anticipating needs I hadn't even considered. Without Tracy and her exemplary personal touch, I doubt I would have ever invested in property in Mexico. I wholeheartedly recommend her and the Playa Real Estate Group.

Our realtor Kim was absolutely amazing. From the first interaction, we knew she was the right realtor for us. She looked out for our best interest with every property we viewed, and helped us find our dream condo. She went above and beyond helping us through the entire process, In addition to providing us viewing of multiple listings, we received assistance and her personal expertise with closing/receiving of our unit while out of country and so much more. She is so friendly, personable, and easy to work with. Without her, this would not be possible!!!! Super professional, lightning fast responses, what more could you ask for in a realtor. Thank you so much Kim. Highly recommended!!

My small family group recently purchased a vacation house in Tulum, Mexico. The staff of employees from Mexico Real Estate Group - by Jason Waller worked diligently to provide amazingly detailed, courteous, and unique service; far better than we expected, and certainly far better than we received from any other Brokers we worked with in three different countries. Kim O'Connell, from the Playa del Carmen office, and Jorge Delgado, in the Tullum office were outstanding!! There is no need to look further for help with purchasing you dream home or investment property in this part of Mexico.

We purchased our first home in Mexico. The unknown of buying in Mexico and the hole process was very stressful but Aimee and her team handled everything perfectly. She was very patient showing us tons of apartments, writing up offers, then changing the offers and she communicated with us through every step. Thanks Aimee for a job well done. Peter and Angelika

Tracy did a wonderful job of showing is at least 5 different properties through chat and zoom over a six month time period. We were actually able to purchase a beautiful condo without actually seeing it in person. The entire process was easy with Tracy’s expert help.

Marisol did great job finding me a condo to buy in Playa del Carmen. She drove me around to probably close to a dozen properties to look at and helped me make offers on a couple of them that I was interested in. Then she put me in contact with a local law firm to get everything in order and finalize the deal. I wound up buying a condo in presale and finally took delivery of it last December and I couldn't be happier with it. Thanks for all your help Marisol!

**Update: They reached out to me to assist with the issues we are having. Much appreciated. Thank you for your responsiveness. I wish the agent we had been working with would have been as responsive throughout our buying & closing process.Our agent did next to nothing for us. What is the use of having an agent when you end up navigating everything on your own? We weren’t able to be present at the finalization of our purchase. Our agent never went or see our unit then later when we had issues just advised us to “next time not receive the unit” in the that condition & just directed us to speak with the person we were already in communication with. We weren’t here- which she was aware of- & she is our representative as our agent so I am confused?? Now we are dealing with repairs & issues on our vacation when our sale was final 6 months ago. During this time our agent never reached out to us to assist with anything. We also asked for recommendations for a handyman & nothing.

Both my wife and I had an incredible and seamless experience with Max. His professionalism and humor made our search and purchase fun but extremely informative. We feel that he chose the best places for us to view based on what we told him over the phone. My wife and I have already suggested him to friends wanting to purchase in Tulum.
Personne tres honnete et surtout professionnel , ecoute bien ses clients , repond parfaitement à leurs besoins , tres ouvert d'esprit et surtout disponible.

Aimee Rojas is AMAZING!!! Since this is my first out-of-the-country real estate purchase, she made the process extremely easy. Even before visiting Playa del Carmen in person, she provided a video of the property of my choice. She also showed me all the viewings I requested. Her knowledge of the market, reliablity, and promptness made me comfortable with this real estate transaction.She showed me Playa del Carmen and made me fall in love with the place. She knows the local areas and found me the best property the meets my budget and needs. She looked out for me and have my best interest in heart. I felt like I was working with my best friend rather than a real estate agent. I highly recommend Aimee Rojas for sure she will find the best property for you.AGAIN, THANK YOU AIMEE ROJAS FOR FINDING MY DREAM PROPERTY! This is not the first and last. Cheers to more business transactions with you.

This was our first trip (of many, hopefully) to Playa Del Carmen. We had already met online with Jerry Agüero prior to our short vacation. I can say without a doubt that Jerry not only knows Playa Del Carmen as a professional realtor, he knows with his heart and soul, what made this an unforgettable experience.We have a huge list of must-haves and Jerry was able to accommodate all our requirements.I know we still have ways to go prior to making our final decision. But I know we are in good hands with Jerry by our side during finding our home in Playa Del Carmen. By the photos, you can see he got our "ocean view" request to heart!

Tracy was amazing. Purchasing a home in Mexico was exciting, but also slightly intimidating. After spending time with Tracy listening to her knowledge of the area we ended up with purchasing a place we love and already have a friend in the community. Super kind and easy to work with. Highly recommended!

Uly Savchenko and the Playa Realestate Group has been extremely helpful in my purchasing process. My Vacation home search started 8 months before I actually traveled to Playa Del Carmen. I started emailing 8 months before asking about many different properties. Uly always had time to reply to all my emails over the 8 months. Once I arrived into Playa , Uly took several days taking time to show me several units. Once we found my Dream home Uly help me thru the entire process from start to finish, stepping in when needed. Uly was very responsive and professional. I could not ask for a better agent .

I would like to start by saying that Aimee Rojas is beyond professional and a warm and friendly person. I had a lot of questions and she was kind and patient explaining everything to me. I always felt that she had my back and was looking for the best options for me according to my taste and budget. I felt like I had a friend guiding me to make the best decisions. She was always available even in the middle of the night or Sundays answering all of my questions and comforting me when I needed it. I am very happy with the final result which is my beautiful apartment in Playa del Carmen thanks to her hard work. Finally, she is a joy to be with when celebrating your new home in Playa.Gracias infinitas Aimee!!

I would highly recommend if you're selling/buying a house in Playa Del Carmen to at the very least have Jenni come and give you her thoughts, she is knowledgeable and has a keen eye for detail. Jenni has an awesome personality, very approachable, honest and professional. She offered service above and beyond what I had expected and was flexible to suit my needs. If I was selling/buying again Jenni would be my first call.

Aimee is a knowledgeable professional, and a delightful, amiable person to work with. She listened to what I wanted and didn't try to steer me to something that I was not interested in. I look forward to working with her in the future.
Aimee Rojas is one of the best real estate agents I have ever worked with and I have purchased almost 20 properties in my life. Not only does she have your every interest in mind but she goes beyond the call of duty to ensure every process goes smoothly and according to your expectations. She is a true professional and I can see that she will continue delivering world class service in the real estate industry and surpass her goals in an extremely successful practice.

Are you on a fast track or a methodical search process for property in the Playa area? Either situation, Jenni Black is the person you must seek out from the Playa Real Estate Group.Over the very short period of time, the working relationship Jenni created was one of trust, support of our mission and care.She presented numerous condo’s (pre-construction, newly built and resales) and was readily available to answer all our questions. Her knowledge of the area, buildings and developers was excellent in assisting with our decision making process.The search was all performed remotely from our home in the states but using WhatsApp and Zoom meetings it felt like we were there. Jenni genuinely takes care of you. We made a trip to Playa after our sales proposal was accepted. Jenni had a tour scheduled for our condo in construction and she coordinated meeting our lawyer at the same time. We took a walking tour of the neighborhood and pointing out the essential services we may ultimately need and yes, favorite restaurants and the most important is where to get a pedicure and nails done for my wife.😇We feel so fortunate to have Jenni as our realtor and new found friend in Playa! Jenni is truly the total package.

To go through the process of buying a property in another country can be very stressful. However, Jenni and the Playa Real Estate family made this an easy and stress free process. From the minute I first contacted Jenni she made the process easy and productive. When i came down to view properties Jenni dedicated an enormous amount of time for several days to finding the right fit for me. She made a point of not only showing me each property but the area and amenities available for each location...In large part to her dedication and hard work i was able to find an amazing condo that will fit my needs perfectly. I could not have been more pleased and impressed with Jenni's process and availability even during the closing process. Thanks again and the Margaritas are on me...Cheers

We have been working with Gaby O. to build our dream vacation/rental home in Tulum. We are from the U.S. and have very little Spanish aptitude. Gaby has been amazing in helping us find a good location and architect. The process is very different in Mexico than the U.S., but she has been wonderful keeping us informed on how the process works.So thankful for her patience, knowledge, and ability to keep everything moving forward.Thank you from Casa Chida!!

I live in Playa del Carmen and was looking for Condo to live. Nancy helped me to find my dream appartment. I have met some real estate agents but stuck with Nancy because she was professional, reliable, allways on time, and never tried to sell me things i didnt want or need. I got the appartment 2 months ago and everything worked out great so far. I also appriciated her help and contacts for things i needed beside just the appartment like furniture, decoration and internet. I can recommend her and would use her in the future again.

Aimee Rojas was very responsive and professional. We were traveling from outside the country and we had already developed great rapport prior to us landing in Mexico (via email and text). We even got a sneak peak at some of the places she was going to show us. Since we weren’t very familiar with the area it was great having a local “guide” who knew the area and we also felt she was looking out for our best interest. Overall our property search was a great experience and I highly recommend her for your real estate needs.

Tony was very helpful in finding the perfect property for us in Puertas Adventuras. He was very enthusiastic in showing us many properties in PA trying his best to find us the ideal property that checked all the boxes. He was patient with us through the offer process and answered all of our questions. Tony has continued to stay in contact with us and share photos and videos of the progress of our condo at Bliss. He tried at every turn to make us feel comfortable with our decision to purchase property in PA.

How do I begin to share what an amazing experience it has been to work with Jenni Black and her team in Playa del Carmen? After we fell in love with Playa del Carmen, we decided to invest and buy a vacation/ rental property in this amazing and charming town. I spent a WEEK with Jenni looking at everything that were the best options for location and budget...she exceeded my expectations in every way! Not only did we find the PERFECT studio Oceanview condo...we ended up buying TWO!! One unit we eventually plan to live in, and the other as the perfect investment opportunity. Whether you are looking to permanently relocate, or just to invest, Jenni Black is the most knowledgeable agent I would recommend.
