"All I can strive to be is the absolute best possible version of myself."
Born in Sweden lived all over the world as a child, completed education in Sweden and immigrated to USA. We had a number of business's from Motorcycle dealership to Mortgage/Real Estate offices.
Our company here in Mexico was founded in 2005. This was the result of my personal residence purchase in Marina Vallarta in 2002. During the process I found needs that could be implemented in Mexico. Some aspects that we are used to and very comfortable with in the US, Title company's, Escrow, home inspections, home warranty, financing and standardized contracts etc.
From the lack of lending I felt very strongly about securing funding solutions, as well as true professional buyers agents that are diligent knowledgeable, timely and caring.
Things have progressed nicely as Pacific Paradise Realtors has full service Real estate company that will meet and exceed your needs. First American Title Tla as well as Stewart Title handle escrow and title insurance in Mexico for us.
Paradise Mortgage & Financial services can assist in sourcing lending solutions for our Mexican, American, Canadian, British and Spanish clients.
We have combined well over 30+ years in the real estate and finance industry.
In the USA, we are Real estate & Mortgage banking licensed in multiple states.
In Mexico we hold the highest and most recognized certification. The Mexican Government Conocer certification and AMPI. More importantly when working with a company ensure they have and do own property in Mexico and are educated.
Our company has three entities, Pacific Paradise Realtors, Pacific Seguros/Insurance and a sister company Paradise Mortgage and financial services.
Thanks to our extensive real estate, lending, management and banking backgrounds. We feel very fortunate to have enabled the alignment with major banks, lending institutions, private lenders/investors, title companies, reputable Notaries, Mexican and American attorneys.
Finally a Real estate company that truly listens and fills our clients needs. We pride ourselves in "fulfilling dreams in paradise".
This coupled with a financial institution offering “A to Z ” in lending.
Unsecured consumer loans, traditional Real estate to commercial lending. Covering many parts of the globe; From Canada to north and south America, to the Caribbean
Truly a full service lender that handles everything from condos, land, construction, commercial to major projects.
This has been a very needed service. Mexico has historically been all cash transactions. Few exceptions from time to time with some possible seller carry.
Buying a property in Mexico is a bit different than the Real Estate transaction in the United States or Canada. We will walk you through the process and you will be amazed at what a painless process it really can be.
There are aspects of real estate sales that seem pretty simple. But in Mexico some differences exist.
There are many elements to ensure a smooth transaction, however, they are complicated and daunting.
Again experience is the best teacher. Use our years of experience in Meixco.
We can help you with every aspect of buying or selling your home because we have experience.
We have a team of professional people. . .
We truly care.
