Testimonials

At PVREBA we do everything possible to help our clients find the perfect property; one that meets or exceeds their greatest expectations. Whether they buy or not, it is most important to us that they enjoy their stay in Puerto Vallarta. Our primary objective is to create new friends and neighbors.
Below are a few of the testimonials received from clients served; many of which are now enjoying Vallarta as full or part time residents.

I have received many e-mails from L.L., she is very happy with your service and finding exactly what she had in mind. I may be interested myself just a couple of questions how many of the 63 suites have been sold, have they started any construction or are they pre-selling so many prior to starting…how many floors, prices, suites with best ocean view, is it walking distance to the beach…what is the required down payment at this time and payments to follow when and how much, does it come with appliances, do they have furniture packages available to put into rental pool?

Thanks so much it really sounds like a good investment. (referring broker)

I have told many people about you and if there is to be any serious interest in my circle of friends and family I would want them to contact you immediately before spending so much wasted time researching, although I suppose that is not a negative. I also would be interested in another invest. in the $250,000 mark. I keep thinking about the condos above the restaurant where we had our lunch at the marina, could they poss. be a good invest, because of the location? Thank you for everything, you were the icing on the cake. Bye for now.

It is so nice to have such wonderful people involved in every aspect of my purchase.  I am confident that I will be happy with my decision and my new home.  It wouldn’t have happened without your help because I am too timid to do this alone. I am so lucky! I hope your big deal this afternoon was successful and lucrative.  You deserve to receive bigger benefits that were possible with my small purchase.  I am so grateful that you are willing to help little guys like me.  I will accept your offer to help me again with improvement plans for the condo.

We are more than pleased with the choices we’ve made in regards to both you and our choice of builder. It took us over 2 years of seeing every available development on the market and working with several real estate agents. We did our homework. Now that we have taken possession and are living here, we sit back and know we made the right decisions. No regrets. Absolutely none! You are the most knowledgeable professional support person we have dealt with regards to real estate and investments. CT builds an outstanding product. Both of you are men of your words and that means a lot when buying in a foreign country.–Thanks

You are probably thinking that we have forgotten you.  But we have in fact been wanting to write you since we got back from VallartaWe want you to know that we will be in contact with you to see how the real estate market is there in Vallarta. Thank you so very much for all you did for us in our brief trip to beautiful Vallarta! Take care.

Thank you very much for your consideration.  We are totally in love with our particular unit at xxxxx.  I have done quite a bit of investigation on the project and everything always comes up 100% positive.  We feel very comfortable with the quality of construction, the financial stability, and the vision of the developer.  The package that you proposed was very fair, and we will do business with you anytime.  We plan to visit again in the spring.

Thanks for all your help with our purchase. I really do not think it would have worked out without your help…no, I know it wouldn’t have panned out if it wasn’t for you! Thank you.

You definitely are the “man of real estate in Puerto Vallarta.”  So terrifically glad I found you.

We appreciate all the hard work you have done for us. You will always be our PV real estate person.

Thank you so much for negotiating on our behalf. Thank CT for working with us and hope to see you again in the spring.

You were exactly correct (and prescient) with your assessment of (name omitted). It’s fun to go back to your email of 26.Oct.2007 and re-read it now. Sounds like you were working for the Saskatoon Securities Commission. Nice work–you saved me a fortune!

I know we’re late in thanking you for the wonderful touring and the fabulous new friendship you offered us. So now tonight even though it’s very late I have to sit down and let you know what’s been happening and let you know that we raved to all our friends and family about P.V. and the wonderful new friend we had met and if we can we will continue to refer visitors and buyers to you.

We have been looking around at condos and houses to get a better feel for the market and where we would really want to live if we decided that we would like to spend some or part of the year in Mexico. 

We want to assure you if we decide to purchase you will be included as our buyer’s agent.  We appreciate all of the time you spent showing us places and do not want to take advantage of your time.

We love you so much. You are a great guy and we appreciate everything you have done for us. Keep up the good work.  Best of luck selling this winter.

We appreciate your taking time to meet with us. In fact, we have already passed your name on to another couple that we met here in PV who are looking for real estate. Again thank you and we will be in touch as we move toward purchasing property in PV.

Hi Jim: Thanks for making today go smoothly and for all your work to make this happen in a good and timely manner. So happy to be in our own home. Thank you again, Jim, for all the help beyond the call of duty you have been to both of us. J&F

Jim, I’m speechless with amazed appreciation! You are a wonder! Thanks M&S

No shelves in the cabinets – really; thanks to Jim, we have some now :). On a serious note, you guys have all been great, and I appreciate it. Both Taniel and Jim (my agent) have been great partners in making this purchase as seamless as possible. Kudos to both of them. J&C

If you would like to send me your email address I would be happy to forward you some basic information that was helpful to us. Again, Guovanni, you probably know as much or more than I did about PV, but I had the good luck to meet Jim Scherer who (a) knows more about Puerto Vallarta, it’s builders, agents, etc., than anyone I’ve met, and (b) is one of the finest, most honorable real estate agents I’ve come across in my 40 years as a real estate attorney. R&L

We both so enjoyed our reunion today. And thank for the lunch. Next one is on us! You have been above and beyond helpful this past year to us in so many ways. M&I

We do love the condo and have met some of the residents – going out to dinner with two couples tonight and met another one who gave us a ride into town yesterday. Everyone is very friendly and we think it’s going to be a great building. We are also meeting some nice folks through the Ex-Pat community. So all in all we are settling in nicely. Let’s pick a night next week to get together for dinner (any night other than Tuesday should work for us). Good luck with your new clients. D&R

FYI Jim. Just wanted T C to know how much we appreciated him getting us connected with you—a lifesaver! J

Jim, Thanks so much for reaching out and hope you had a great Christmas and will have a fantastic new year! And I hear you on Old Town. Construction everywhere! Looks like I bought at the right time… And I am sure you are doing great selling more condos! Hope to see you in the coming months. We will be there in January and I am bringing my parents and aunt out in February. Still Loving PV! Thanks, P& W

Hi Jim, Good to hear from you! Yes, I agree they are both very happy. I haven’t spoken to S while he has been down in PV but I’m sure I will when he returns to the office. I’m helping them sort all the VRBO stuff as I learn along. You still busy? It seems like this year will be a dandy for PV sales. R

Hi Jim, As always, greatly appreciated for keeping us posted. Yes, hopefully everything is completed. Thanks! S&R

Hola Jim, Greatly appreciated and thank you so much for the info! That is good news.We definitely need to talk more when we’re down there in September. Gracias, L&R

Jim, Good to hear from you. Hope all is well. We have recently booked for both Thanksgiving and New Year, so you can tell that we are delighted with our purchase. Happy to act as a reference at anytime. All the Best, I

Jim, We just got back into town last week and it has been a three ring circus in our house ever since. I had it on my calendar to drop you a line the end of this week as things should be settling down for a few weeks until the next onslaught of deliveries. We are making progress on the house. Having decided to completely redo it has been quite the job but we love decorating so it has been fun. It became much easier once we got our car that’s for sure. We would love to have you over to see what we have done and then go have dinner somewhere. It isn’t finished but you will get the idea. D&R

Hi C. Here are the documents and signature pages. I have copied our real estate agent, Jim Scherrer on this email as he is based in PV and was involved with all the contracts. If there is anything needed or missing from these documents I am sure that Jim will be able to help you. Yours, T

Jim, Thanks so much for the very thoughtful housewarming gift. We will definitely enjoy sipping on the fine tequila inside and keep the bottle (refilled?) as a beautiful accent piece on our bar. And, thanks for the great dinner. We enjoyed sitting by the Malecon and taking in the beauty of our new home. Have a great rest of the summer and good luck with the kitchen remodel. R&D

Hi Jim, We enjoyed the lovely dinner with you! Thank you for meeting with us. And we can’t thank you enough for everything you have done for us. We’re loving our condo and the time we are spending here. Hope to see you again soon. Kind Regards, I & T

 “We first began working with Jim in June, 2008 looking at different condos that we thought would be the perfect second home for us. We would still visit PV every year to vacation and we kept looking all the along the way. Last year we purchased and closed on our condo and we couldn’t be any happier with the knowledge and experience Jim provided. Jim has been in PV for many years and since he has witnessed many projects being built, he is able to know the buildings that are built well and properly. Mexican building standards are very different than the United States and the building code is likely nonexistent. Someone like Jim who is an engineer by training, has the knowledge and the eye to spot out inferior construction. We highly recommend Jim Scherrer for your condo or villa buying experience. R & MA

We love the condo and have met some of the residents – going out to dinner with two couples tonight and met another one who gave us a ride into town yesterday. Everyone is very friendly and we think it’s going to be a great building.  We are also meeting some nice folks through the Ex-Pat community. We are having great fun spending money and the fun will continue for some time! So all in all we are settling in nicely. We would love to have you over to see what we have done and then go have dinner somewhere. It isn’t finished but you will get the idea. Let’s pick a night next week to get together for dinner (any night other than Tuesday should work for us). Good luck with your new clients.  D&R

Good to hear from you, hope all is well at your end and thanks for that info. I appreciate your efforts in this matter. Please do the math and give me a figure that you would be comfortable with, if we are in agreement with that figure then there is no way that I could take advantage of your generosity and I don’t want to do that.  If I run over that number it’s on my tab. I’m very pleased with the condo and hope to be in PV in Jan. Jim, likewise it was a pleasure working with you. You were very thorough and knowledgeable. I hope all is well with you and your business is still booming.  JG

Thanks Jim, Hope this email finds you well.  It’s been a week since the purchase of the condo and it´s almost ready for prime time. I am very pleased with the purchase. If you retire, you need to hand over your business to me and I will continue to make you rich :). Thank you so much for doing this for me!  I really appreciate it.  I’ll call tonight and let him know I’m happy with the outcome. I really appreciate you doing this for me. Net net, I really like the condo. On a serious note, you guys have all been great, and I appreciate it.  You might have other friends and family knocking on your door wanting to buy a great condo!!! Happy Easter! JO

First of all, we want to thank you again for steering us through the waters in successfully buying our home! We have now lived happily here for almost a year and a half, counting our time in our rental casa. All to say we agree with you, so far, Jim, we would rather live in Puerto Vallarta than any place we have been on this earth. We owe you so much for all your vital help in making this wonderful life possible for us. Thank you. J&F

Happy New Year, Jim. Yes, in this New Year we are thankful for having met you, and for all the help you have been to us this past year. Beautiful weather here; it is wondrous now. We are lucky people. Well, cannot thank you enough, Jim, for all the help you have been to us. Thanks again Jim for getting me connected with people who can get things done. It would have taken me years to figure these things out without all your generous help.

Ms M. really liked you and greatly appreciates all the help and information you have given her. Thank you for doing that. She remarked that you are a gentleman and so down to earth; a finer gentleman I could not have wished to come across. Many thanks in advance for all your continuing help Jim. Best wishes for you and family for the New Year. JL

I am certain that Jim (Scherrer) can help you find the place of your dreams here in Puerto Vallarta. My wife and I did TONS of research before deciding that we would rather live in Puerto Vallarta than anywhere else in the world. He found us a great condo at an affordable price. We’ve only been here 7 months and already consider it “home.” Jim is a fantastic gentleman – honest, brilliant and he knows Puerto Vallarta better than anyone I’ve ever met. R&L

Thank you Jim. It was an awesome experience dealing with you. We will hook up in December or before. Thanks again. We are absolutely loving being owners. Thanks for everything you did to help us make that happen. M&M

Thanks for your responses to my questions/items, Jim.  They indicate you are trying to ensure that we have a soft, smooth landing in becoming property owners in PV. We really, really appreciate that. All of your ideas were great. Thank you for orchestrating it all. You did a lot for us, and it all was much appreciated. You probably have no need for such, but if you ever need a recommendation from us, it would be our pleasure to oblige. As the process developed, we saw you as much a friend as a real estate consultant.  I understand that you need to set boundaries in such matters.  Nevertheless, it would be a delight to keep the connection and yes, we definitely continue to enjoy our penthouse! M&I

We plan to be in PV by mid-March and just wanted to update you on our plans.  Sounds like we are in good hands all around; I heard from Mrs. J expressing the same information. Thanks to all!!! See you Saturday, and again,  thank you sooooo much Jim.  I’m speechless with amazed appreciation! You are a wonder! M&S

Mucho Gracias and Thanks to all.  We could not be more impressed with the condo after our first night in our new second home! And thanks so much for the nice housewarming gift. And I am sure you are doing great selling more condos! Hope to see you in the coming months. We´re still loving PV!

Thanks so much for reaching out and hope you had a great Christmas and will have a fantastic new year and I hear you on Old Town, construction everywhere! I was just checking out  www.vallartanayaritmls.com  and it looks like the market might be picking up. It is the best I have seen it since I started looking. Hope it goes crazy and you make a ton of money! Looks like I bought at the right time…Thanks again for all of your help and really glad to hear you are doing so well; hope you can get your clients to make an offer today! Jim, it was great seeing you again. Fun as always! P&W

The following is a blurb sent from a chain on Facebook: I strongly second the above recommendation of Jim Scherrer as a buyer´s agent. 25 years in PV. His follow up and communications are outstanding. He went way above and beyond in helping us make the transition, and still does MN….. I would have to extra agree with MN as well, Jim Scherrer works for you NOT the seller. He is not only a good buyer´s agent but you will have a friend for life. You should read his articles on his PVREBA website. VO

Hola Jim, M gave us an estimate of our couch. I hope you can work on your magic to get us some discounts. Wow,you´re a busy man and glad to see you going strong! Yeah, we have missed PV a lot since we got back from there. Yes, you´re correct the whole Feb still booked. We definitely would love to see you when we get down there.

Hi Jim, Hope all is going well with you and family. Greatly appreciated and thank you so much for attending the HOA Meeting. It seems like the meeting went well!  Have a great weekend! THANK YOU JIM!!!!!!!! 🙂  Thank you so much, Jim! Hope you are doing well!  We miss you and bothering you!  Lol!  Although, I know we will always keep in touch! We just got in.  I’m looking for Notaria”s phone#: because we need to call them to arrange to pick up the deed. Is there a day that you are available to meet for lunch? Just let us know because we would love to see you. We don’t mind at all going back to your favorite place, the best Fajitas and is our treat!!!  If you have another place, let us know! Thx! Greatly appreciated and thank you so much for the info! Thank you so much for all you´ve done for us, Jim! Thank you, Jim! Greatly appreciated as always! 🙂 Also, I’m glad you mentioned that there is a substantial increase in sales on the condos.  Let’s keep that momentum going so that all the condos prices in Conchas Chinas will go up higher and higher. That is good news when we sell our condo.  We definitely need to talk more when we’re down there in September. S&RA

Hi Jim, I’m sure glad you got my parking spot documented. I couldn’t be happier. Super job Thanks Jim, one more to go! and as always many thanks for your efforts.

Jim, I guess it´s time to search for more properties that are good possibilities. Since you know the agents that are representing the following condos, maybe you could get some intel before bothering them to show us the properties. Any other ideas you have are ALWAYS appreciated. Put your mind to it and see what you come up with. Thanks and I really look forward to the hunt! We love PV and this condo makes it really to like! Yep, dinner soon. R & MA

Jim, thanks for the outstanding service helping us get landed. We really appreciate it. We care about you, we’re thinking about you, and we want the best for our friend. We were wondering if you were interested in dinner on Sunday? If you’re up for it, then we’ll pick you up 5:00 pm on Sunday. Let us know. We’d look forward to getting together. Thank you, Jim. PS; Thank you so much for this info. A very fair tax bill J!!! S&B

Hi Jim, Still not finished with Casa xxxx but I am interested in another property. I would like for you to arrange a visit to Casa xxxx in Gaviotas. It appears to be the kind of fixer that I like. Thanks for your assessment. It confirms mine. I have no interest in living in the house.  It is an investment only. I like your positive attitude! Let me know if you are interested in making another easy commissionJ. TC       FYI Jim. Just wanted TC to know how much we appreciated him getting us connected with you—a lifesaver! JL

Thank you Jim, We arrived here in PV on Saturday and are finishing things up. The condo was ready enough to move into just a day before our guests arrived on Dec 21st. All in all, it is a magnificent apartment and we are settling in. Please come by and visit. We are planning a “WRAP” party on Friday this week for all who have helped us on this project and would like to invite you to attend. Please come around 7 PM. There will be music and snacks. T&C
