1st Annual Vallarta Real Estate Fair a hit!
The first annual Vallarta Real Estate Fair took place at the Rivera Molino Plaza on Saturday, March 2nd, 2013. The successful event hosted by Timothy Real Estate Group, included over 12 local businesses and professionals offering free advice ranging from mortgages, health care providers, home owners insurance, real estate, immigration and it’s laws, interior design and more.
“I am very pleased with the turn out,” said Carl Timothy, one of the principal forces of the successful event and president of Timothy Real Estate Group. “With an ever evolving market and new rules and regulations, we thought it would be a great opportunity for foreigners, local professionals and our clients to have a chance to come out and meet face-to-face with some of the leaders in these industries and get the information they need first hand.”
It was estimated that over 150+ people turned out for the event, on a gorgeous Vallarta day. “This was sort of our trial run, to see if there would be any public interest for this sort of thing,” said the other force behind the event, Taniel Chemsian. “Often our clients asks us who to contact for information regarding interior design, a real estate attorney, insurance, immigration, you name it. The realtors kind of become the ‘directory’ for their clients. So we thought, why not bring all these professionals under one roof, for a one day event, so everyone can have the opportunity for a sit down one-on-one discussion concerning their needs. I’m happy to see that we had a big turn out.”
One visitor proclaimed, “This was wonderful. I’ve been living in Mexico on an old FM3 visa for over 4 years, and when I heard the immigration laws had changed, I was concerned as to how it would affect my foreign license plated car and my visa renewal. Irving Becerril (from Riedesser & Associates) calmly explained the new changes. It was great information that is sometimes lacking when you are surfing online. You never know what you are reading on the web is current or accurate, so to have this event and have the opportunity to come down and gather the information first hand makes a big difference.”
Some exhibitors, having done business with one another for years, got to finally meet in person for the first time. “Oscar & I enjoyed ourselves and found today to be a productive and educational day. My appreciation to all the attendees. It was good to catch up with them and to have the opportunity to meet for the first time with some of the other professionals,” said Kevin Crisp from Stewart Title Latin America.
When asked about the future of the fair, Taniel continued to say, “We are already looking forward to and planning next year’s event. We anticipate there will be more exhibitors readily available to help answer questions and perhaps a few hidden surprises for everyone.”
