New AMPI President Installed in Mexico City Ceremony

February 28, 2017

La Paz, Baja California Sur, Mexico - For the second time in AMPI's (Mexican Association of Real Estate Professionals) 60 year history, a female has been installed as President. Beatriz Gamboa Lago was installed recently at a ceremony in Mexico City's spectacular Soumayo Museum.

Along with the new President and Vice President, 20 members of the new Advisory Council took the oath of office. Alelejandor Kuri Pheres from Mexico City is the new Vice President.

Witnessing the event were members of the association who came from across the county to be there, local dignitaries and politicians from three levels of government. The mayor of Merida, Beatriz's home town, was among those on the podium along with other government representatives.

Traveling from my hotel near the Monument of the Angel to Polanco, I noticed the horizon dotted with building cranes. During his comments the Director of Urban Planning for Mexico City shed some light on the situation. He said, "Construction activity in 2016 was 14.2% higher than in 2015."

On the same day, The International Real Estate Federation (FIABCI) held its annual meeting. Silvia Elias from Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco, took the chair as the new President of that organization.


John Glaab is Vice President of International Marketing at The Settlement Company, Mexico's oldest title and escrow company. A Certified International Property Specialist, he is a founding member of AMPI Los Cabos and an active member of Associated Realty of the Americas. In 2012, John was named the International Real Estate Member of the Year by NAR. For further information, contact John at John.Glaab(at)settlement-co.com.
