“We talked to a number of Real Estate Agents in San Miguel while we were searching for the house that would best suit our needs. We found that Daniel and Roxana stood out above all others. They happily and patiently showed us different parts of San Miguel, as well as the surrounding communities, and took us to view houses in every area that we
were interested in, whether listed by their office or any other agency.
By showing us numerous houses in various parts of town and country, Daniel and Roxana helped us to come to a decision on where we wanted to live, and introduced us to the house that we eventually purchased. They are both highly competent and professional individuals, and a pleasure to deal with. Their connections in the community are extensive, and we valued their advice on many subjects. We would be happy to recommend them to any prospective buyer or seller of real estate in San Miguel de Allende.”

“What a fun and knowledgeable real estate couple to work with! We thoroughly enjoyed our time together both from a business and pleasure stand point. Daniel and Roxanna not only shared information about their community of San Miguel de Allende but also imparted how to live and purchase property in Mexico. We continue to enjoy our relationship as we begin the building process and look forward to referring friends to them in the future. BEWARE OF THEIR DOGS!”

“My wife and I found Daniel and Roxana exceptional realtors to work with while we searched for a home in San Miguel and after we purchased our home. To start with, they are good listeners and never lost sight of our needs and budget. We never felt rushed by them (even though we were doing our home search in a tight time frame). They were always pleasant, great fun to be with and very knowledgeable about the housing market.
Daniel and Roxana are equally fluent in Spanish and English, which was a tremendous advantage. They worked with great skill to help us navigate through some difficult moments when we were negotiating our purchase. They fully understood the legalities of home buying in Mexico and recommended excellent legal representation at the time of the actual purchase. Since our home purchase they have stayed in touch with us and have been ready to help us whenever we have felt the need. We recommend Daniel and Roxana without reservation. We think that their combination of professional expertise and people skills make them the perfect realtors to work with in San Miguel.”

“My wife and I had an incredibly positive experience with Daniel and Roxana. I do not speak Spanish well so their fluency and comfort with English made it easy for me to work with them. At the same time, their knowledge of the local real estate market and regulations surrounding the purchase of property by Americans in Mexico allowed us to have a great buying experience. On top of all that Daniel and Roxana are just a pleasure to work with.
We would highly recommend them to anyone looking to purchase in the San Miguel de Allende area.”

“We loved San Miguel from the moment we arrived: the beauty of the city, the friendliness of the inhabitants, and the fascinating expat community. Looking for a property to purchase was a given, however, we were strangers in a strange land.
We were introduced to Daniel and Roxanna early in the “looking” process and were immediately impressed by not only their obvious desire to find the house of our dreams, but also the fact that they listened to what we wanted, and their persistence throughout the entire investigative and purchase process to find the house that would suit us.
They walked us through each and every step of acquisition with professionalism, absolute thoroughness and with humour. Their services did not end with just finding us a house… they made suggestions relative to areas, made us consider options, and helped steer us towards the environment we wanted for our home. Their ethics are beyond reproach and we would not only use them again, we would not consider using anyone else.”

“Second only to the excitement and pleasure of finding our dream vacation home in San Miguel, was the great experience of working with Daniel and Roxana. Their knowledgeability and professionalism was evident every step of the way, and they were able to make the unfamiliar process of buying a house in Mexico as smooth and drama-free as we could have wished. They are real estate pros, and we can recommend them without reservation.”

“It was a true pleasure working with Daniel Ortiz and Roxana Cházaro. They are a great team, and always go the extra mile in service, professionalism and optimism. My husband and I were extremely pleased with the personalized and dedicated attention we received both in the sale of our former home here in San Miguel, as well as in the purchase of our new home. Both transactions were accomplished in record time, with the utmost efficiency and excellent communication. They were always available and quick to resolve any doubts or questions we had, and always with a smile.
When we decided to buy a new house, we simply described what we were looking for, and they immediately responded with information on what turned out to be the perfect home which satisfied all our needs at price we could afford. When it came to the sale of our home, they worked to price and promote it to sell quickly and seamlessly in a tough market.
We would highly recommend working with this team, who has a thorough knowledge of the market, the legalities, are bilingual, and are willing to go out of their way to make your real estate experience pleasant and hassle free. We were delighted to find a lovely bouquet of flowers awaiting us upon arriving at our new home, compliments of Daniel and Roxana, which is just another example of the care and thoughtfulness they put into their work.”

“When we were selling our house, Daniel and Roxanne were more than good realtors; they became trusted guides through an often-confusing system and wonderful friends. They paid attention to the details and made sure the sale went through smoothly. They were just the hand-holders we needed. I wouldn’t hesitate recommending them to anyone who was buying or selling in San Miguel.”

“We listed our house on Recreo with 8 agents in a nonexclusive in San Miguel for 2 years. We had very little activity and no offers. After meeting this dynamic couple we listed exclusively with Daniel and Roxana and with their professionalism and constant communication including detailed updates, 3 months later we had a contract. Daniel and Roxana are the most pleasant and professional real estate team in San Miguel.”
