WHAT OUR CLIENTS HAVE TO SAY ABOUT OUR REAL ESTATE SERVICES
“Michael, his wife Ana – and the whole Boardwalk Realty team – are fantastic to work with. We bought a property in Puerto Vallarta from Canada and the seller lived in the U.S. – talk about long distance negotiations! They not only helped with the sale, but also with everything we needed to know around buying property in Mexico. They have a wealth of knowledge and calmly guided us through the process. They advised us about everything right down to where to buy furniture, finding a handyman and where to eat lunch! We asked A LOT of questions and every single one was answered in an efficient and professional manner. We have bought and sold a number of properties over the years and you really can’t find a better team than this!”

Mike of Boardwalk Realty is thoughtful and available, and really knows the PVR real estate market as well as his clients. He showed me all the properties I wanted to see in addition to two properties that I did not think I was interested in (and only obliged to see them so as not to hurt his feelings). The latter two properties were my top two! Fortunately, with his expert advice, I was able to get the one my daughter really loved at a very good price. In addition, Mike has a lot of contacts in the area so I was able to decorate my place with the assistance of a great decorator. You cannot go wrong with Mike!
I wanted you to know how pleased we have been with your real estate services. Your office made the entire process as stress-free as possible. It is amazing that we were able to handle the entire sale from Michigan! Tim and I weren’t sure what to expect when we listed our condo, and though there were hurdles along the way, we always remained confident that our interests were being represented and we were kept in the loop. Our condo was sold and finalized much quicker than we expected. I would recommend your office to anyone wanting to buy or sell a property in Puerto Vallarta, especially to someone not able to be in Mexico for the transaction. Many thanks to all the fine people at Boardwalk Realty!
Our experience with Mike and Ana Green was all the way “first class treatment” from beginning to end with our purchase of a beach front condo. Both are very personable, hard working and honest people who did not hesitate to show us every property we inquired about and more. They both made our moving experience here easy and fun. We would never consider using any other agents here in PV.
I have had dealings with Michael Green for at least 9 years. He sold me my first condo in PVR and I was extremely happy since I had bought it in 2 days and he knew exactly what I was looking for. He then sold this unit and told me about a condo that was going to be built. I was at first hesitant since this was pre-construction in another country. Words cannot express how happy I was, since he helped me pick the unit’s location. He told me the pros and cons of units I was looking at in this building. I have now purchased another unit in the same building, using Michael, as I know he has my best interests and his wife Ana is superb. She has helped me navigate with the utilities and with many other things.Michael and Ana are my “go to” Realtors and anyone who has used them or will be using them will know exactly what I mean.
Let me first mention that this testimonial of our buying experience with John is unsolicited by him, entirely my idea because John deserves it. My partner and I were first introduced to John over a phone conversation last fall when I called his office for info on one of their properties for sale. We are not millionaires, our money is hard earned and we tend to be risk averse, hate being pressured into major decisions, we are honest and steer away from dishonest people, we expect nothing but the best as we have both been brought up to deliver our best whatever we undertake. John Swanson’s professionalism transpired from the first few conversations we had and throughout our entire purchase experience. John is the kind of person who cares. He is a listener, what a wonderful attribute for a sales professional ! He is attentive to our needs, placing himself into our shoes constantly. John is patient. He responded to our calls and countless mails in a heartbeat, his responses were thorough and to the point, he addressed all our questions even if to say he would get back to us with the answer, John will not misguide you with assumptions. John was truly motivated by our project; he provided the right amount of guidance at the right time, leaving us as much thinking time as we needed, never pushy. He’s not in it for a short time but for the long run, which makes a world of difference in attitude, suddenly selling the right place for the buyer when the buyer’s ready is all that matters if you care about referrals! I know as I’ve also been making a living in sales for over 25 years in the industrial purchase world. The personal purchase world on the other hand is one of emotions for the buyers, where having the right professional guide you through to the right choice is GOLD. Weather you contemplate a million dollar plus purchase or an entry level purchase like ourselves, I’m totally confident that John will make the difference in your choice of investment as he has for us. Thanks again John, we love our place more and more with time, makes no doubt to us now that you were right about where you thought we’d be happier !

I wanted to send you a note to let you know how happy I have been with the assistance of John Swanson and his assistant in locating and orchestrating my purchase of a lovely property in Puerto Vallarta. I am not “new” to buying properties, but I must say that John provided the best level of service and professionalism I have ever experienced. John showed incredible patience and foresight in helping me locate the “ideal” property for me at the price parameters I had set (which is no small feat since I am a notoriously fussy and detail-oriented client.) John did not get flustered at the number of properties he had to show me and he always seemed to have the data at his fingertips (or was able to locate it in a very timely fashion) for the queries I made about those properties. Once the decision was made on which property to buy, John was there every step of the way, making a daunting task (the purchase of a property in a foreign land) easy, understandable, and comfortable. And with the very able help of his assistant, John was able to provide a turn-key “concierge” service like I have never experienced, so that telephone, internet, TV satellite, etc. were all in place and functioning; he even helped me set up my bank account! This was truly a “hands on” experience, making the transition to Puerto Vallarta easy and painless. You are very lucky to have John as part of your team. And if friends from the States ever show any interest in buying a property in P.V., I will certainly direct them to John and Boardwalk Realty.
Sincerely, Hef Fisher
