Who We Are
Global Real Estate Group Vallarta is the fastest growing real estate company in Riviera Nayarit. We service the Riviera Nayarit / Puerto Vallarta area. The Global agency was formed by Canadians, to help serve foreign purchasers. We specialize in providing exceptional professional service helping Canadians, Americans and citizens of other countries purchase real estate in Mexico for a vacation home, investment, or future retirement.
“We are here to help everyone, but we found that people from countries outside Mexico (like Canada or the United States) need a lot more information and support when they come to Mexico – so in striving to be the best, our job is to be here for you with whatever you need. We assist with education, and information even after the purchase.” – Fred Ayotte, Managing Broker
We excel in 3 main areas:
Providing information about what to expect and investment analysis or cost recovery scenarios so you can make the best decision based on your needs
Assisting with the transition and the emotional implications of moving to Mexico
Full services: we will either do it for you, or introduce you to someone that can help so you feel looked after (housekeeper, cook, hooking up your internet, tv, property management, rentals assistance, etc.)
Since it’s inception in 2011, in just a few years Global has become #1 real estate agency in Bucerias, Mexico (AMPI 2015 Statistics). Our success is attributed to a small close-knit group of professionals with a team-based approach to helping our clients.
Our philosophy is you can hire a good person to do a job and train them: you can’t train someone to be a good person. We enjoy working with good people. We are a husband and wife team, and we hand select a few good people we feel would be a great fit within our team, career accomplishments, and capabilities.
Our office is located in Bucerias, Mexico. In the future we hope to expand, taking our team focused culture to other regions.
To be so exceptional that we are the ONLY real estate company you think of when your family and friends want information or assistance buying real estate in Mexico.
We achieve this through our friendly and knowledgeable people, helpful information, and high professional standards. Our clients join our “Global” family. We help you feel comfortable that you are making the right decision for your vacation home, investment, or retirement.
Our Core Values
It all starts with good people. Honesty. Integrity. A passion for helping people. A drive to improve. We value new ideas, and recognizing excellence. We value informed, skilled people. We value teams that become family.
We value helping our clients make the best decision for them.
We value continuing education, keeping abreast of the latest systems and courses to consistently give our clients what they need and want.
We value community contributions.
We value job creation, and bringing in more foreign dollars helps support and stimulate the local economy and improve the area for the entire community.

We value excellence.
Our culture is about being of service to others. Helping our clients. Helping each other. Helping the community.
Every day we help our clients with information, with a funny story, where to go to buy their favorite shampoo. We have conducted educational seminars on buying real estate in Mexico in Vancouver, Nanaimo, and online. We write articles, blogs, make videos and other materials to help people understand the opportunities and best options for them.
With our team based approach and through sharing of experiences we help each other.
Through various ways we work to help the community. One year we held a fundraiser for the Bucerias orphanage Manos de Amor and worked with Vallarta Adventures. Our team realized there were many that donated for the basic needs of the orphans. We decided to give them something they would never normally get to do, ever: swimming with the dolphins. Another year we sponsored a tri country golf competition between Canada, USA, and Mexico, donated and served cold drinks and snacks.
Global Real Estate Group Vallarta is run by two Canadians from British Columbia, who fell in love with Mexico and all it has to offer, and decided to make it their home.
