How WE Protect You

All our agents were thoroughly vetted and trained in real estate Playa Del Carmen by our Broker of Record, Chris Rauton—a Harvard business postgraduate and Playa Del Carmen real estate expert. We’ve built a thriving business based on relationship-based real estate…as 80% of our sales coming via referrals.


  1. We have an attorney who has no conflict of interest by representing the seller or builder. He is not only a real estate attorney, but also a certified English-Spanish translator and an international tax attorney who specializes in foreign investment in Mexico and capital gains regulations.
  2. We remain in excellent standing (even though it isn’t required) with all the real estate associations and boards in Playa and Mexico—including the Realtor association, the American Chamber of Commerce in Mexico and AMPI (the Mexican association of real estate agents).
  3. We offer proof of legality in all real estate purchases and sales and ensure proper legal entitlement to property.
  4. We do our due diligence. If a development doesn’t have sufficient funds in escrow to complete a project we will not allow our clients to invest in the project. Various previous projects that we refused to be involved in over the last few years are still sitting there half-built and unoccupied. We also look for liens and any financial issues.
  5. We keep our finger on the pulse of construction and development (and in fact run our own construction firm) of real estate Playa Del Carmen, so that we not only know the qualities of sound construction, but also so that we know which Playa del Carmen condos and homes are built to last.

We ensure that your purchase of Playa del Carmen real estate is legally yours (that you hold a clear title), and is made of sound construction. We’ll ensure that after your purchase you aren’t saying “I just bought a small condo overlooking the water. The water is in a cup, one floor below my unit…” or “I bought a house in a depressed neighborhood. The prices weren’t low, but the people were all bummed out.”
