Warren Buffett-led Real Estate Brand Now Open in San Miguel!
The largest real estate organization in the world, as measured by sales, just grew by one more office with the recent opening of Berkshire Hathaway Home Services Colonial Homes San Miguel. Backed by the power of Warren Buffett’s enterprise, the brand expects to bring cutting edge technology and marketing to staid San Miguel!
Eleven-year expat resident (and VIP card holder) Greg Gunter—he’s a Forbes Real Estate Council member, too!—along with 25-year local real estate veteran Alma Cecilia Ramirez are joint brokers of this first binational and bicultural office for the brand and the first & flagship office for the brand in all of Mexico as a boutique Luxury Collection® office.
Gunter notes the office is a direct U.S. franchise, not a country-specific master franchise, and as such, allows his team to offer their clients the same U.S. Berkshire Hathaway tools and technology that master franchises can’t provide in Mexico. That U.S. franchise concept also allows direct Realtor connections in their U.S. feeder markets, meaning faster sales for selling clients. “It’s an exciting concept,” Gunter says, “unique in all of Mexico!” Located right on the Jardin at Correo #3, you can visit this office next time you’re in Centro—they are right next to the Parroquia! Drop in today and say Hi—they’d love to meet you!
(Any person or enterprise may sponsor a VIP Club Newsflash that gets sent out to over 2000 residents of San Miguel. Cost 2000 pesos)
As usual, this will be a busy flash including some additional affiliated restaurants, Thanksgiving menus, some new great deals and The VIP Club & Bahia de la Luna’s fabulous beach-side resort drawing and give-away for members.
Your Club wants to encourage members acknowledge and thank them for the precautions we know many have taken during this dangerous time. By wearing a mask and practicing the other precautions we’ve heard to take, accentuates your respect given toward fellow sanmiguelenses. We salute you!
With the opening up of town we are entering a new phase and it could be a more dangerous time so don’t let your guard down! Remember “ONIPA’A!” (Holding the line together!)
At the same time Your Club encourages all members to support our great restaurant industry and our local businesses at large and their employees. Please consider buying local. Our restaurants are eager for your patronage and welcome the card. Many of our affiliated restaurants are preparing American Thanksgiving menus. If you’re reluctant about eating out perhaps you will order take-out or delivery with them that will fit the bill.
That’s enough of my pitch. Let’s get rockin’.
