Puerto Vallarta Real Estate market is growing…and so is Boardwalk Realty
Three years ago longtime colleagues and friends Michael Green and John Swanson decided to take their more than 30 combined years of real estate experience, here in Puerto Vallarta and the US, and open their own company Boardwalk Realty. Since then the company has grown beyond their expectations. Sales projections are constantly being exceeded so much so that last quarter they were the number 2 sales agency in the bay (all with a very lean and effective team). “The secret to our success is a great team that works well together, innovative new marketing techniques and first class customer service during and after the sale” states Broker John Swanson.
So with this success, and a market that last year started a great rebound and this year is already promising to be better than last, the time to open a new office and hire new team members was now.
Wanting to be sure this was a great move for their clients they researched very carefully to find the best location possible and they did. Located across from Starbucks at the South end of the Malecon, just past the town square. “This location will serve our current and new listings well with the amount of foot traffic and is a very convenient place for buyers to start their search” comments broker Mike Green.
The new office has a full sales and client support team. Pedro Rodríguez and Rocio Nava, both great senior sales agents, will also be on site. Expect to see this office quickly grow!
Drop by and meet the team and see the new office. Look forward to seeing you there.

Here are a few of our guiding principals at Boardwalk Realty:
“First of all, we really want to get to know you,” adds Michael. “Where are you from? What activities do you enjoy in Puerto Vallarta? Do you prefer the fabulous beaches and amenities of Nuevo Vallarta with its golf courses and five-star gyms and spas? Or are you an urbanite who frequently likes dinners and the culture of the downtown scene? When we know you, we can tailor tours to your tastes.”
Secondly, there’s the legal side of owning in Mexico. From ownership to taxes, they’ve been there, done that. “We have some great affiliations with some incredible attorneys,” says John. “Besides our own experience, we can save you a lot of time and money by offering you complimentary consultations with our partner attorneys. The nuances of how you buy here can save you a lot of money when you sell. It’s important to know what you’re doing on the purchase so that when you sell you can best use any tax advantages. This service is free to our clients and can be invaluable.”
John and Mike are both from the Seattle area where each was a licensed real estate agent. “We’ve known each other for a long, long time,” quips John. “We were on the same high school basketball team, were crab fishermen together in the Bering Sea (yep, like the TV show) and roomies in PV when we realized the tropics was for us. Both of us started families here and our kids ride bikes together on Sundays.
Finally, both partners agree that the most important element of Boardwalk Realty is our ongoing service and commitment to our clients after the sale. We are both passionate about protecting the investment and security of our clients. “Our clients become our friends, we see them socially, and we treat them as we would like to be treated ourselves”, adds Mike.
“We’re dedicated to Vallarta for the long haul”, says John. We work really hard to keep our clients interests foremost in our minds. We want your experience to be pleasurable, informed and unpressured. The vast majority of our business comes from referrals of previous clients and we realize this is our best possible advertising. Boardwalk was a natural extension of that philosophy.”
Boardwalk Realty Puerto Vallarta represents buyers and sellers of real estate in the entire Bay of Banderas area, and will soon add a rental and property management division.
