In Realtor 365, a new video program on BanderasNews, Nicole Martin offers her unique, quirky perspective on Puerto Vallarta's equally quirky real estate community.

Meet the Pros

The show offers an "inside the industry" introduction to the top Vallarta real estate professionals. They state their opinions on the market, they shamelessly promote their favorite local charities and they confess how they first landed here on our shores.

Grim, Grim, oh, but Not Really So Grim at All

The inspiration for Nicole's entertaining monthly installments actually came from the drastic impact of misleading media coverage of Mexico's drug wars, which have occurred principally in the border zone.

Despite the relative safety of Vallarta's streets, North American buyers became an endangered species in a market that had already collided with a global recession and with the wildly exaggerated reports of swine flu in Mexico.

It began to seem that every tourist in Mexico was either dodging narco bullets or expiring from porcine fevers. Or the recession had returned us all to living conditions that required gringos to live on jerky and cactus (both are actually very good in Mexico.)

Nicole was also having daily conversations with more sophisticated property seekers from all over the US and Canada, many of them already ex-pat property owners. Her chats seemed to always lead to the same exchange, "Can you believe what they are saying about Mexico? Why is the coverage of crime in Mexico so overblown and generalized, with no distinctions between the country's troubled areas and places like Vallarta, which has a lower crime rate than most American cities?"

So Nicole began to ask: are we all crazy here in Vallarta? Or can we just see through the clouds and experience what is real and true about Vallarta, our place in the sun?

She decided to pursue Truth, Wisdom and Humor within the bi-cultural eccentricities of her business community. Everyone in Vallarta has a story. Nicole will tell them, realtor by realtor.

Hola Chica. My home page is set on Banderas Bay newspaper, and i clicked on your video about closings... I just wanted to tell you - Girl, you are awesome! I just love it! The cartoon girl is perfect, the light and lively vibe, the music, and your tutorials are clear, nicely timed, the whole thing is has such a professional feel but with a fun edge... way to go. Keep on keepin' on Nicole!
-Erin & Endre
Amazing! You are so lovely to watch and completely at ease. I love the concept of introducing Realtors as service providers - outside the realm of selling real estate. They are great at volunteering and helping others! Well done. This program will no doubt add to the understanding of how valuable and down-to-earth realtors can be. I think people will really appreciate the education! Looking forward to the next!
- Carol Hilton Jenson, Kamloops, BC Canada
Dear Nicole: Congratulations on a fabulous job! Really impressive and fun to watch. I also loved seeing friends and acquaintances who we all know and love. Jeri Grant ROCKS! David Pullen is a HUNK! Franklin is MR COOL. Plus all the other interviewees who gave a much needed positive message about PV. And you were sensational on camera... BRAVO! Thanks, too, for promoting animal rescue and spay and neuter! I'm looking forward to the next posting. Keep up the EXCELLENT work! Your friend, and now fan!

Nicole, You have just started a new career! Send it to every agent in the country! This will go into the Nicole Martin Archives of Professional Achievements! Need I say more? We might even think of moving! Have I told you about the time we hooked into a 400 lb. Marlin in the Bay there? Super job!
- Woody and Jutta
I Watched Realtor 365 early this morning... Love it!
- Heather Wilson
Nicole: What a great video! I really needed to see this because I return to PV this Saturday. The weather is beautiful here in Denver and I so enjoy my friends here as well, but after watching your video I can't wait to get my bags packed, my home closed up for the winter and return to the place that I so dearly love, Puerto Vallarta. What a positive message your video presents. Thanks! See you soon!
