Estaba pensando invertir en Vallarta pero estaba preocupado porque no conocía la situación local ni qué opción sería más conveniente en mi caso. Después de exponerle mi situación a Russell, él me recomendó el tipo de propiedad y zona para invertir. Me mostró muy buenas opciones, con el consejo de Russell elegí una propiedad con condiciones muy favorables para mí además de ser muy rentable . Gracias a Russell todo el proceso de oferta y compra fue muy simple, claro y efectivo. La operación se pudo cerrar en unas semanas sin ninguna complicación .
Recomiendo a Russell ampliamente, estoy muy satisfecho con sus servicio. Es un experto en Puerto Vallarta y en operaciones inmobiliarias

I would just like to send a shout out to my realtor, Russell Faulkner, who was extremely helpful and knowledgable in assisting me with my first purchase outside of the United States.
I first visited Puerto Vallarta in February of 2015 and shortly after leaving had decided that Vallarta is where I wanted to have a vacation/rental home and maybe eventually retire to. I had asked Michael Mayo (the rental agent for LaPalapa) if he new someone that could help me in my search for a vacation condo. Very quickly I received an email from Russell saying that he could help. I explained to him that I knew absolutely nothing about purchasing property in Mexico. Russell assured me that he was the guy for the job and could guide me through this process. I bombarded him with tons of questions (and I am sure some of them were dumb). He took his time and patiently answered all of my questions and reassured me that he would be able to help. Things seemed to fall into place perfectly. I flew down in the beginning of July 2015 for a week. Within 5 days, we had:
1) looked at a number of condos (that fit my criteria) on one of the hottest and most humid days ever ( I lost all of my water weight)!
2) put a bid in on one at Vista Del Sol
3) And the bid was accepted and had all of the paperwork signed!
I couldn't believe how smooth things went and I'm sure that Russell was a large part of that. Russell was not only experienced, knowledgable and extremely helpful, he was a pleasure to be around.
I came back for settlement in August, where he picked me up, drove me to settlement and calmly ( one of us had to be) guided me through the whole closing process.
His job should have ended there but no. He has been helping me since, in many different ways! He has recommended a reputable contractor to me and I am still using him today. Where I should shop for furniture. Where I can go and watch the Baltimore Ravens games. And how to get rid of the ugly LazyBoy that was in my condo!!
Every time our paths cross he is genuinely happy to see me. I'm glad that we did meet because not only is he an exceptional realtor, I consider him a friend!

I met Russell in August 2013 while searching to buy an apartment to be used as rental income. Russell answered the phone with enthusiasm and was ready to work, a welcome change from prior experiences. He had never met me, the condo was in lower price range, and it was off-season, which made his responsiveness all the more impressive. I signed a contract in less than two weeks as we found the right property and I strongly believed he was looking out for my best interests. I trusted Russell's opinion, not only because of his connection to Puerto Vallarta, but for his follow up skills and balance between selling and listening. The follow up continues to this day and cant't underestimate how important this was and still is. It was a very enjoyable experience and I would use Russell in the future to purchase or list.
