With its palm tree-fringed beaches, rich culture and vibrant nightlife, Puerto Vallarta has long been one of Mexico’s most sought-after escapes. Today, a host of chef-helmed restaurants, innovative galleries, and awe-inspiring real estate has lured a new wave of sun-seekers to the perennial favorite—and inspired many to stay forever. From the quaint cobblestone streets of Old Town to the world-class beach resorts of Riviera Nayarit, The Agency is proud to expand to Puerto Vallarta.
The new Puerto Vallarta office marks The Agency’s 26th location worldwide, bringing our tally of offices in Mexico to three, including Cabo San Lucas and Punta de Mita. The office will be led by distinguished real estate veterans Richard Bartholomew and Alejandro Aldrete. Together they will spearhead the growth of the new office and work in partnership with The Agency’s network of brokers throughout the U.S., Mexico, Canada, and the Caribbean.
“Mexico is a country where we continue to see strong demand for luxury second homes from our international buyers, in addition to an increased appetite for branded residences and new development product,” says Mauricio Umansky, CEO and Founder of The Agency. “We are very proud to represent the first One&Only branded residences in the world, One&Only Mandarina Private Homes, located just a short drive from Puerto Vallarta, and we are looking forward to further expanding our portfolio and serving the community."
“We have been fortunate to expand rapidly since our inception due to the partnerships we have created with professionals like Richard and Alejandro,” says Billy Rose, President and Founder of The Agency. “Both have deep roots in the Puerto Vallarta community and are amongst the best in the business. We look forward to further expanding our footprint in the region as well as throughout Mexico in due course.”
Richard currently serves as Managing Director of The Agency’s Palm Springs and Palm Desert offices and has sold more than $930 million throughout his 25-year career. Alejandro began his career working closely with Mauricio 15 years ago. He has sold more than $500 million of real estate and works alongside some of the most preeminent developers in the U.S. and Mexico. In addition to his role at The Agency Puerto Vallarta, Alejandro also spearheads operations at the firm’s Punta de Mita office.
“Puerto Vallarta is a magical destination and I have had the honor of previously living and working in the region,” says Richard. “The expansion of The Agency in Puerto Vallarta signals an exciting new chapter for the market, and we are looking forward to further serving buyers, sellers and renters.”
“Since launching The Agency in Punta de Mita two years ago, we have quickly become one of the most sought-after and respected real estate companies in the area,” Alejandro adds. “I am looking forward to the exciting developments the opening of the second office will bring.”
The Agency’s Puerto Vallarta office is located at Loft 268, Venustiano Carranza, Emiliano Zapata, Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco, Mexico, 48380.
