Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - After we wrapped the recent filming of House Hunters International here in Puerto Vallarta, I sat back and reflected on how far Timothy Real Estate Group has come in such a short time and in such a changing market. I can only say that after reviewing our accomplishments and path we have travelled over this last year, I feel grateful and proud, of all that we have accomplished in such a short time.
I also realized that success is not an accident and is born from hard work. (I know firsthand now.) Starting a business is hard under the best of circumstances and I wanted to share our story in a few chapters with the hopes that it might inspire others who are starting out, or thinking about it.
Chapter 1: Diving into the Puerto Vallarta Real Estate Scene
Life sometimes sends you some incredible opportunities and I was looking for just that when I was asked to move to Puerto Vallarta as a partner with one of the larger property management companies in town. They were looking for someone to help them with their real estate needs. At the time I was doing very well with Prudential California Realty John Aaroe in Beverly Hills, but I wasn't enjoying going to work in the morning.
I needed a change and even though Mexico seemed drastic, it did seem like the right moment for just that - a change. I moved to Puerto Vallarta in 1999, found a wonderful marina townhouse, where I lived while I got started here, and immediately dove into the Puerto Vallarta Real Estate scene with both feet.
Among the things I was involved in during that time: I helped get the Riviera Nayarita board of realtors up and running, I got the property management company's revenue up by 400% while meeting new people and networking constantly. I continued for almost 10 years immersed in this market and the business of Real Estate.In 2009, I decided that it was time for me to start my own project and put my own personal brand on what I was doing. Starting my own company in the middle the 2009 worldwide economic crisis, and doing it in Mexico may have been a crazy, but I jumped in with both feet with no idea what was coming next...
