Armando and Roberto and the whole crew at Galvan Real Estate have been wonderfully helpful in our purchase of a home in Lo de Marcos. From finding us the right property, to walking us through the legalities of a foreign purchase, sharing their knowledge of where to buy household items, to receiving deliveries for us when we are not around! They are super helpful and friendly people.

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.

In 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.
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.

During my brief stay at Tres Torres, I was delighted by the pool and the beach Access just steps away. The swim up bar was a blast (even if I had to bring my own drinks) 🙂
The staff was friendly and accommodating and took care of my requests in a timely manner.
I would return again to this Condo in Lo De Marcos.

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.

In short, this was the Best trip EVER!!!
Thanks for everything you did!

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
