Covid-19 Update from Lo de Marcos, Mexico

Posted by AdminGalvan on May 7, 2020

An update from Armando Contreras, Broker, Galvan Real Estate and Services

What a wild ride this has been! Like most businesses in Lo de Marcos, Galvan doors remain closed with only essential employees behind them.

Surprisingly, Real Estate inquiries and new listings for sale, remain clicking along at a pretty good pace. They are certainly not at pre pandemic levels but that are continuing none the less.

Our Property Management Team is hard at work as always taking care of the properties in our program.

I see that the local ExPat residents that have chosen to call Lo de Marcos home, are doing a good job of trying to support the local restaurants and businesses that are staying open.

You can see that list here —

The Community Kitchen and Food Bank are operating at capacity and both doing an excellent job in serving the Pueblo.

I have received a lot of inquiries asking how you can donate to either program. Galvan has made our Paypal account available to these grass roots organization. You can donate here, Just make sure to include a note telling us who to give your donation to.

When the town re-opens I am sure we will see a slightly different landscape with many store doors probably remaining closed.

As a community, we have received very limited financial support from either the State or Federal Governments and what we have done, has been community based.

Next Season will come but I am unsure of how it will unfold. I am certain that our hard core Snowbirds will return but uncertain if the lure of Lo de Marcos will extend past that. I cannot wait to be reunited with those that return!

At Galvan, for the foreseeable future, we are ramping up our Marketing efforts to focus on our own Domestic travelers. Take a look here –

Galvan remains rooted in the Community of Lo de Marcos and we intend to do our best to promote Lo de Marcos as the jewel that it is and to get this town back on its feet!

Until we are travelling again, I will think positive thoughts!

Best Regards to you all,

Armando Contreras
