I would just like to send a shout out to my realtor, Russell Faulkner, who was extremely helpful and knowledgable in assisting me with my first purchase outside of the United States.
I first visited Puerto Vallarta in February of 2015 and shortly after leaving had decided that Vallarta is where I wanted to have a vacation/rental home and maybe eventually retire to. I had asked Michael Mayo (the rental agent for LaPalapa) if he new someone that could help me in my search for a vacation condo. Very quickly I received an email from Russell saying that he could help. I explained to him that I knew absolutely nothing about purchasing property in Mexico. Russell assured me that he was the guy for the job and could guide me through this process. I bombarded him with tons of questions (and I am sure some of them were dumb). He took his time and patiently answered all of my questions and reassured me that he would be able to help. Things seemed to fall into place perfectly. I flew down in the beginning of July 2015 for a week. Within 5 days, we had:
1) looked at a number of condos (that fit my criteria) on one of the hottest and most humid days ever ( I lost all of my water weight)!
2) put a bid in on one at Vista Del Sol
3) And the bid was accepted and had all of the paperwork signed!
I couldn’t believe how smooth things went and I’m sure that Russell was a large part of that. Russell was not only experienced, knowledgable and extremely helpful, he was a pleasure to be around.
I came back for settlement in August, where he picked me up, drove me to settlement and calmly ( one of us had to be) guided me through the whole closing process.
His job should have ended there but no. He has been helping me since, in many different ways! He has recommended a reputable contractor to me and I am still using him today. Where I should shop for furniture. Where I can go and watch the Baltimore Ravens games. And how to get rid of the ugly LazyBoy that was in my condo!!
Every time our paths cross he is genuinely happy to see me. I’m glad that we did meet because not only is he an exceptional realtor, I consider him a friend!

I have been acquainted with Russell for over 8 years. Russell spent 5 long years showing us properties and emailing back and forth from our home in Northern California at the time. I knew immediately from the emails that Russell would help us find our home in Puerto Vallarta. But, it was not without much work and patience on his part. We emailed back and forth before ever meeting for some showings in PV. I was impressed in the first 6 months of emailing with his savvy Internet ability and mobile technology, especially in those early years here. He had an excellent knowledge of the Puerto Vallarta listings and markets and was established with one of the top firms. Local knowledge is of the utmost importance when buying in a foreign city setting and Russell met the bill. Over the next 5 years as we looked at properties with Russell (once or twice yearly), I came to understand that the realtor in PV must have a good networking ability. Russell works cooperatively with other realtors and firms in the city and is well respected. We eventually fell in love with a property that Russell had already known it would be our “pick” of PV property. I can highly recommend Russell for his professionalism, tenacity, competency, and patience. He remains our “realtor” and good friend.

We cannot say enough about our experience working with Russell. Russell was totally committed to helping us find our dream home in Mexico. He sincerely listened to our needs and found properties that met those needs and that were within our budget. He was patient, never high-pressure, and always focused on answering questions in an honest and easy to understand way. Russell’s integrity and service exceeded our expectations and we can recommend him without reservation.

Thank you for using your considerable experience on a sale that was not easy to carry out. You made big difference.

I met Russell in August 2013 while searching to buy an apartment to be used as rental income. Russell answered the phone with enthusiasm and was ready to work, a welcome change from prior experiences. He had never met me, the condo was in lower price range, and it was off-season, which made his responsiveness all the more impressive. I signed a contract in less than two weeks as we found the right property and I strongly believed he was looking out for my best interests. I trusted Russell’s opinion, not only because of his connection to Puerto Vallarta, but for his follow up skills and balance between selling and listening. The follow up continues to this day and cant’ underestimate how important this was and still is. It was a very enjoyable experience and I would use Russell in the future to purchase or list.
