Yadira makes sales happen!

Yadira makes sales happen!

I contacted Yadira Rios Torres in early 2022 after doing an internet search for properties for sale in Zihuatanejo. My husband and I were searching for a property we could retire to in a few years on the coast of Mexico. Having travelled somewhat extensively around Latin America, Zihuatanejo seemed to “tick all of the boxes” for us: beach, great fishing, close to the U.S. therefore a quick plane ride home to the States, warm climate, welcoming locals to foreigners.

Yadira’s reviews were great and she speaks fluent English. This was important to me since I knew very little Spanish at the time I contacted her to find us a property to purchase.

Yadira immediately asked me important questions to narrow down our search for properties to buy: how many bedrooms, preference on desired neighborhoods, price range, etc. But, being new to the area, we only knew what we had read online. As any good realtor should, Yadira continued her probing, asking us pertinent questions to dive deeper into our true desires in a property.

Yadira ended up showing us a property that we would not normally have chosen but we fell in love with at first sight. We made an offer, amidst competing offers actually, and Yadira facilitated the sale without a bidding war. We were ecstatic.

I’m being honest when I say that the closing process moves much more slowly than in the United States, even with cash offers. Plus, there is a lot more paperwork and verification of identity and proof of payment involved. We closed six months after our offer was accepted. I think this is important to anyone reading this so you know what to expect. Although the process may be a tad frustrating to those from the U.S. or Canada, be patient. It will happen and the end result will be totally worthwhile.

We are spending our first extended vacation/mini-retirement over the December holidays in Zihua/Ixtapa and look forward to numerous more extended visits in the upcoming years.

Back to Yadira. She is great. She knows the local Zihua/Ixtapa sales market and she facilitates deals. Hire her. You won’t be sorry!

P.S. Yadira also introduced me to her niece who is teaching me Spanish. Ammy is great Spanish teacher, offers private lessons, and she will come to you.
