It’s never boring at #1 Puerto Vallarta real estate brokerage Timothy Real Estate Group. The 8-year-old firm continues to break new grounds year over year by give back to the community, host annual foreign investment event, and promote tourism across the globe. Spearheading the trailblazing movement at TREG (as it’s called by the staff and real estate agents) are founder and president Carl Timothy and Senior Sales Associate and ‘House Hunters International’ agent Taniel Chemsian. Since launching the company in March of 2010, Timothy Real Estate Group has quickly risen the ranks to become the #1 Listings Office and #1 Sales Office (according to the Vallarta Nayarit MLS) throughout Puerto Vallarta and the Bay of Banderas. This was no easy task to accomplish as the company was founded during one of the most oppressive years of the recent US recession. With a dedicated broker, exceptional team of agents and marketing experts, the firm placed all its time and energy in offering unparalleled service, value and commitment to the local community.
It wasn’t long after TREG became the premiere real estate firm in Puerto Vallarta when the producers of HGTV’s ‘House Hunters International’ approached them. The wildly popular real estate and travel show seen in over 50 countries was looking to film in Vallarta for the first time. After auditioning for the television program the summer of 2011, Taniel Chemsian was selected as the show’s agent, in what later became a synergy of sorts. Fast-forward to 2017, Taniel has been featured in 16 HHI episodes, more than any other agent in North America and second worldwide. “I never planned nor expected this to happen,” proclaims Taniel. “At first I thought this would be a one-off gig, something fun and different. Then all of a sudden, the production company wanted to do film a second episode soon after the first, and then it was three episodes the following year, and so on. Last year we broker our record by filming five episodes. Its been a bit surreal and absolutely remarkable – not only have we been given an amazing opportunity to showcase our beautiful city and offer investment opportunities, but we’ve been able to give back to our community and needy charitable organizations that offer so much. With the help of our incredibly devoted staff, local businesses and friends, we’ve held three successful ‘House Hunters International’ charity events, with 100% of the proceeds going to the benefactor organizations. This November we are going to throw our fourth event called ‘House Hunters International – Disco Ball’. We’re mixing up the format this time around by throwing a big 70’s theme dance party. Get out your hairspray, glitter, and platform shoes, and don’t forget to dust off those vintage bell-bottoms! We’ll announce the event venue and ticket pre-sales in the coming months. This is one event you don’t want to miss.”
Following on the coattails of their 2012 television premiere on ‘House Hunters International’ and charity gala, Carl and Taniel brainstormed to produce another community event – the very first ‘Vallarta Real Estate Fair’ (www.vallartarealestatefair.com), a free one day event held outside the Timothy Real Estate Group office at the Rivera Molino plaza, in which real estate professionals and local businesses set up booths and offer their services and free consultation to attendees. Open to the public, the event has grown in popularity and size year over year. One of the main highlights of the annual event is the ‘Panel of Professional’. The special speakers’ panel features a number of local professionals, covering a variety of topics, included notarios, real estate attorneys discussing capital gains and buyer/seller closing expenses, immigration, accountants from the US, Canada and Mexico, market summary reports, bankers, mortgage lenders, vacation rental services, and property management, to name a few. “The speakers’ panel has become a important segment of the real estate fair” continued Carl Timothy. “Many of our foreign friends and clients aren’t fluent in Spanish, so they’re a bit uncertain regarding having found the correct information from a reliable source or professional. The panel and exhibitor booths offer an opportunity for our guests to visit our English speaking professionals and obtain correct information their real estate investment and available resources throughout the city.” Next year’s Vallarta Real Estate Fairwill be held in the first quarter of 2019.

During the summer of 2017, Carl Timothy and Taniel Chemsian attended an exclusive real estate retreat in North Carolina, in which privately owned boutique brokerages networked and share ideas, experiences and knowledge regarding different real estate markets throughout the United States and Puerto Vallarta. The three-day event drew a distinguished crowd from across the States, including high profile brokers from New York, San Francisco, Florida, Texas, along with Carl and Taniel from Puerto Vallarta. They were an integral part of Engaging With The Media speakersprogram, in which they shared the stage with TV’s ‘Million Dollar Listing – Los Angeles’ star Madison Hildebrand, discussing the power of the media and how to tap into the opportunities it represents. This marked the first time Mexico was represented in the prestigious, invitation only annual event. Carl and Taniel are scheduled to attend the 2018 event in Chicago, Illinois later this summer.
