About Us

After many years of working and traveling in Mexico, Laura and I settled in Tepoztlan. The idea was to relax and enjoy the bit of paradise we had discovered. But our enthusiasm for our new home was so contagious that friends asked us to help find homes or pieces of land here for themselves.

We got so busy that we opened our internet site tepozland.com just to keep track of all the properties that were available. And we enjoyed so much the international community of buyers and sellers that we decided to keep with it and enjoy our new endeavor.

Our goal is to offer an honest and responsible real estate service in Tepoztlan for the national as well as international market. I (an American) and Laura (a Mexican) offer a bilingual, bicultural team with many friends and contacts throughout Mexico and the United States.  We spend as much time as we can with our clients to analyze their needs and capabilities – so we can find the best available property for them.  We will not recommend something that we feel is not in their best interests. We’re ready, are you?
