I am from Mexico city but visited Riviera Maya for the first time 14 years ago.
Like so many others I instantly fell in love with the area and 4 years ago I finally dared to move to Playa del Carmen, a decision that has improved the quality of my life immensely.

My past experiences are in the administration side of notorious international companies such as Ogilvy & Mather and one of the most important banks in Mexico, Banamex.
I spent a couple of years working in sales for different resorts along the coast.

I am now very proud to be able to provide value by sharing my knowledge of Real Estate in Playa del Carmen and the surrounding area in order to find the best property for you and your loved ones.

 Luis Urbina – Real Estate Consultant

Born and raised in Belize, having a hard work ethic, desire to learn and explore the world, I moved to Playa del Carmen to further expand my skills and services to the people visiting the Mexican Caribbean.

I received my Bachelors of Business Administration from St. Mary’s University in San Antonio Texas, with my major in Management Information Systems and International Relations. I’ve known the life of sales from a very young age, creating a passion in the services I provide, focusing on my customer needs and goals.   By making an industry leap to real estate from a sales manager on the famous 5th avenue, I’ve created a high level of commitment to my real estate education, having been mentored and coached by several of the most highly acclaimed real estate coaches in the industry.

In my spare time, I enjoy a nice casual evening with my close friends, exploring the long list of unique restaurants and live music. During my days off I like to go fishing, work on cars and explore the natural wonders of the Mexican Caribbean.

Ian Tutton – Real Estate Consultant

After being born and raised in England I moved to Canada at the age of 14, went to high school in a small mining town in North Ontario. After graduating high school I headed west and spent 20 years in Vancouver BC becoming a chef. Working in the kitchen has always been a strong passion of mine and now I enjoy cooking for family and friends. With all the fresh local fruit and vegetables Mexico has to offer, my time in the kitchen creating unique dishes is fantastic, especially with the help of my 3 year old daughter.

After many years as a chef I moved into the corporate world of selling food and equipment to fine restaurants, pubs and caterers throughout the Vancouver area, my background allowed me to approach sales in this area with a way that was consultative, after all, the more successful my customers were in their business, the more successful I was as their sales person and friend.

After moving to Playa Del Carmen with my wife and 2 year old (at the time) daughter my wife started a business here, my daughter quickly leaned Spanish and my passion for helping people succeed in both business and life brought me to Real Estate. In the fastest growing market in Latin America my consultative approach to real estate has allowed me to help many family’s, retirees and investors realize their dreams of owning property in the Riviera Maya. Non-residents acquiring property here can seem a difficult and daunting task. My job is to make it easy and stress free so you can enjoy your dream home forever. ”
