Armando and the Galvan team made a dream a reality. From matching me to the perfect home to walking me through the Notario process, they have been my guidance and my inspiration every step of the way. They didn’t show me every listing hoping one would interest me, they listened to the my search criteria and walked me into the right home. With the purchase process complete, I’m enjoying the family like care of their management team. Robert and Ivania continue to help me navigate language, culture and contruction. So many hard working individuals, I wish I could name everyone here, are able to anticipate and address all aspects of property and client care. Whether I’m on sight or out of town, I’m in knowledgeable and caring hands.Team Galvan’s investment in my adventure as if it were their own, has made what might have been an overwelming impossibility a manageable and rewarding experience. Muchos Gracias.

We were so fortunate to have found Armando with Galvan Real Estate for the sale of our home in Lo de Marcos Mexico. As our agent, he found the right buyer and negotiated the highest price for us. Prior to finding Galvan Real Estate, we tried other agencies without any success. Once we found Armando, we felt very comfortable and felt like he was on our side and would be successful in selling our house.

In a short amount of time, Armando found us the perfect buyer. Throughout the process he was very focused on answering our questions, giving us good advice, handling the Notario’s requests with efficiency , and even expediting the closing date. We would recommend Armando with Galvan Real Estate to anyone. 5 star service.

From Sam Smith who stayed in a one bedroom beachfront condo in Lo de Marcos from Jan 28th to Feb 25, 2017.

Armando and his dynamic team are the BEST when looking for the perfect vacation property! From the initial contact, we knew that we had reached out to the right people for our search—so personable and willing to res
pond to our questions promptly. Armando just knew exactly what we were looking for in a vacation rental & suggested one that was perfect! During our stay in Lo de Marcos, we had many occasions to communicate with all members of Armando’s team and continued to receive the personal, prompt responses that sometimes different situations needed. Armando and his team truly care about their clients and go the extra mile! We will definitely be using their services again! Gracias!

Paragraph BreadFrom Patty Cypher who arrived on January 1 st , 2016 and departs the Bungalows on May

13 th — – https://galvanrealestateandservices.com/2015/06/13/bungalow-for- rent-lo- de-marcos/

Bungalows Don Jose poolIn the Spring of 2015, I decided that I had finally had enough of Colorado winters and made a vow to spend next winter in Mexico.

Having spent many years traveling and wintering in different parts of Mexico (Baja, Yucatan, San Miguel de Allende), I was in search of a quiet place, warm, and within four days driving distance of my home.

My neighbor ,Steve, has been coming to San Pancho for many years, and he confided that he was selling his business, retiring, and moving to Mexico. He raved about the Riviera Nayarit, the scenery, the weather, and the kindness of the local people.

And so I began my search on-line . . .

I looked at many rentals from Sayulita to La Penita and nothing really clicked for me.

Too big, too expensive, too small, too busy . . . Not knowing the area, I decided to just trust my instinct that the “right place” would appear. And so I kept searching . . .

Finally, an ad appeared for what appeared to be a charming bungalow within my price range in a place called Lo de Marcos.

I immediately emailed for more information and received a quick response from Armando at Galvan Real Estate and Services with photos, pricing and information about Lo de Marcos. An auspicious beginning for what has turned out to be not only a wonderful winter but also a lasting relationship with the fine people at Galvan Real Estate.

Of course, I searched the internet for reviews of Galvan Real Estate as well as Bungalows Don Jose. I read reviews, looked at maps, and decided to book my bungalow through Galvan Real Estate. A flurry of emails between Galvan and myself included all the necessary booking information, rental agreement, answers to questions such as , “how will I get my keys?”, “is my bungalow on the second floor” and even so trite as “is there a blender in my bungalow?”

I arrived, as planned, on January 1 and drove straight to my rental, following the map and directions supplied by Armando. As I approached the office of my bungalow, the first question that greeted me was “do you have a reservation?” “Si” was my reply, “con

Galvan Real Estate”; welcoming smiles broke out from Joelle and Carlos at Bungalows Don Jose.

And thus began a new chapter in my life . . .

Four months later I am still here — waiting until the snow stops in Colorado so I can go home.

 Since that time, I have weekly stopped at the office of Galvan Real Estate where I soughtassistance with a variety of questions about Lo de Marcos in general and as specific as,“will you please help me get a reservation for a weekend in Santa Maria del Oro?”

When I had problems with the internet at my rental, Galvan Real Estate quickly responded to my request for assistance, contacted the manager of my rental, and the issue was quickly resolved.

Through Galvan Real Estate, I became acquainted with the weekly Tianguis de Lo de Marcos where I met friends, shopped, listened to music, and ate Ariana’s wonderful empanadas, I learned about the area from Memo’s weekly walks and discovered the beautiful river road. I got suggestions about restaurants, where to get a massage, where to get my hair cut, and finally, I got the best paint job ever for my car (including flames) from Ana’s husband and brother-in- law.

I watched Galvan’s involvement with the community, saw Armando take the very elderly woman who lives next to the Galvan Real Estate office for walks, witnessed the on-going caring, problem-solving and customer service provided through Galvan Real Estate and became aware of and later involved with the wonderful charitable organization Amigos de Lo de Marcos.

I attended the Taste of Lo de Marcos and the Fiesta 2016 both sponsored in part by Galvan Real Estate and Services.

I learned how truly special and tri-cultural this community is: Mexican nationals, Americans/Canadians and Quebecois coming together to enjoy the Fiesta de Lo de Marcos and through its raffle/silent auction, raise funds for the various projects co-sponsored by Amigos de Lo de Marcos for the local schools, senior center, the environment, and other charitable causes. When the raffle tickets were drawn, I watched Armando of Galvan Real Estate read the winning numbers in Spanish, followed by a reading of winning numbers in French and then English.

So now, after four months in Lo de Marcos, as I prepare to head home, I realize how fortunate I am to have connected with Galvan Real Estate, not just for my rental property, but for their expertise, customer service, and most importantly, the example they set in fostering friendship and caring in the community. Thank you to Armando and the exceptional Team of professionals at Galvan Real Estate in Lo de Marcos.

I’ll be back next year and will continue to recommend Galvan Real Estate for rentals and real estate in the Riviera Nayarit.

Hi Armando,
The stay at the Sayil Condo was great. We had a very nice week and really enjoyed both the pool and the beach. Everything very conveniently located, great views and nice weather.
From Jonathan and Catherine who recently arrived to Lo de Marcos.
Discovering “We had a wonderful stay in Lo de Marco thanks to the host. From the minute we arrived until the moment we left left, he was there to answer all of our questions and concerns. He even gave us a tour of the city and offers weekly hikes to anyone who cares to join. I cannot express how helpful the host was during our stay. If I were to list everything I liked about it, you would be stuck here all day reading the extensive list. I would highly recommend booking if you are planning to stay in Lo de Marco. ”

Paragraph Bread(July 12th to the 19th) Guest at Casa Lido – Lower Conchas Chinas

First and foremost, my family (mother, father, brother, and I) LOVED our stay in Casa Lido!

It was our first time in Mexico, so we were a little bit nervous and not sure what to expect. But it was all for nothing. The staff at Casa Lido was wonderfully helpful and welcoming. Linda spoke perfect English, and the rest of the staff was happy to speak “Spanglish” with us whenever we needed anything. 🙂

The villa was absolutely spotless, and they cleaned every single day that we were there, mopping from top to bottom. The maid, Isabelle (sp?) was very friendly and my mother enjoyed talking to her, even though they both were mostly doing charades. 🙂

All of our meals (we ate several in the villa) were freshly prepared and delicious. They did a nice job of providing things we were familiar with, while also introducing local flavors through sauces and side dishes. I HIGHLY recommend trying Marielu’s pancakes! The best I’ve ever had!

My favorite part of the villa was definitely the view of and proximity to the beach. We weren’t crowded by the other villas, and had a lovely unobstructed view of the ocean and the sky. Perfect for relaxing, and watching the colorful sunsets.

I can’t recommend this villa highly enough. My whole family is hoping to go back sometime in the near future.

Everyone at Galvan Real Estate were excellent.  Straight Shooters and delivered as promised without any hiccups.
We really enjoyed our stay at the Villa but… “only with a guys group”, but… not with young families as there are too many stairs and the pool and decks are cause for concern of kids falling over steep hill.  But other than that, with “guys only” trip, I would come back.  Loved the trip overall.  The staff was attentive and fair.  Everything went smoothly. – A.D., Guest from Canada

    Galvan Real Estate Services is all that you might want and certainly all that you need when it comes to real estate in Lo de Marcos. My wife and I have used the services of Galvan Real Estate and Services to secure an appropriate rental when we were vacationing and to resolve issues with the difficult and demanding owner whose house we were renting. Anything we needed, magically appeared. Anything that went wrong was made right. We only needed to enjoy ourselves and the community.
    Our experience was so good that we decided to look into buying a home. We saw several homes and when we had made a decision several months later, the Galvan team handled everything that needed to be done. We flew down two days before we were scheduled to meet with the Notario to close the deal, Galvan arranged lodging for us, took us to breakfast to discuss the process and then went with us to the closing to ensure that we understood everything that was going on. Unfortunately, we encountered another demanding owner and everyone at Galvan worked on our behalf to resolve issues.
    After the closing, Galvan took us around to meet our new neighbors, helped us hire, at a very reasonable cost, a house manager, garden and pool guy and a maid to maintain our new home while we just get to enjoy it. Everyone at Galvan has been so good to us that we now count them as friends, as well as real estate professionals that we would recommend to anyone.

    ***** Espanol

    Galvan Real Estate Services es todo lo que es posible que desee y, ciertamente, todo lo que necesita cuando se trata de bienes raíces en Lo de Marcos. Mi esposa y yo hemos utilizado los servicios de Galvan Real Estate and Services para asegurar un alquiler apropiado cuando estábamos de vacaciones y para resolver problemas relacionados con la difícil y exigente propietario cuya casa nos alquilar. Todo lo que necesitamos, apareció mágicamente. Cualquier cosa que salió mal fue hecho justo. Nosotros sólo necesitábamos para disfrutar de nosotros mismos y de la comunidad.
    Nuestra experiencia fue tan buena que decidimos buscar en la compra de una casa. Vimos varias casas y cuando ya habíamos tomado la decisión de varios meses más tarde, el equipo Galvan manejamos todo lo que había que hacer. Volamos hasta dos días antes de que estaba programado para reunirse con el Notario para cerrar el trato, Galván organizó alojamiento para nosotros, nos llevó a desayunar para discutir el proceso y luego fuimos con nosotros para el cierre para asegurar que entendimos todo lo que estaba pasando en. Por desgracia, nos encontramos con otro propietario exigente y todo el mundo en Galván trabajó en nuestro nombre para resolver los problemas.
    Después del cierre, Galván nos llevó alrededor para cumplir con nuestros nuevos vecinos, ayudó a alquilar, a un costo muy razonable, un gerente de la casa, el jardín y la piscina chico y una criada para mantener nuestro nuevo hogar, mientras que acaba de llegar a disfrutar de ella. Todo el mundo en Galván ha sido tan bueno con nosotros que ahora contamos con ellos como amigos, así como profesionales del sector inmobiliario que recomendaría a cualquiera.

    1. Thank you Donn! You and Mary were a pleasure to work with and we look forward to seeing you both upon your return.

      ¡Gracias Donn! Fue un placer trabajar contigo y con Mary y esperamos verlos pronto a su regreso.
