When moving to Mexico, many people will develop a plan, create a list of goals and then they’ll move, not Jose Aguilar, or Joe, as many know him, “I was just passing by and one thing lead to another, I got invited to work in real estate and I got in the business.” That was seven years ago.
Joe was born in Mexico, but grew up in San Jose and Simi Valley California. He says he moved back to Mexico, settling in San Felipe for the mountains and the people, but especially the sun, sand and Sea of Cortez.
After nearly five years learning the trade, Joe started Desert Realty. “I learned from their mistakes,” says Joe, about working for others, “and when I opened my business I made sure not to make the same mistakes and I know what the clients want and expect.”
Now, just two and half years later, Joe and Desert Realty employ seven and offers complete residential and commercial services. They are marketing throughout Mexico and continue to develop their commercial real estate business. Joe himself has served as Secretary of the Chamber of Commerce (COTUCO), and the Secretary of the Real Estate Association of San Felipe.
Desert Realty offers experience in San Felipe, Puertecitos, San Luis Gonzaga, Bahia De Los Angeles, Ensenada, and Baja California real estate as well as intimate local area knowledge, and they work extensively to help buyers and sellers meet their real estate goals.
As Americans continue to struggle with the rising cost of living and a declining housing market, Mexican real estate is beginning to really make sense. Although, there has been in decline in sales, property prices in Mexico are significantly more affordable than in the U.S. In the fishing village of San Felipe, which historically slows during the summer months, Joe says it’s “better then the states, slow but still making sales.”
Desert Realty is focusing on marketing and getting ready for the when the market rises to service the forthcoming retirement of the baby boomer population and their demand for affordable retirement property.
