Keller Williams Worldwide comes to Mexico

Keller Williams Worldwide Expands into Mexico

The new KW Mexico team is led by Operating Principal Mario Aviles and includes Jorge Carbonell, Teresa Anderson, Barbara Gaxoet and Roberto Obregon.

“We want to take the Mexican real estate industry to the next level,” Aviles says. “Our goal is to make KW Mexico the leading real estate company for new generations around the country. Communication, commitment and integrity are the values that will make KW Mexico the real estate company of choice for brokers, agents and clients.”

With 120 million residents in Mexico and a rapidly expanding economy, the Mexican real estate sector is poised for explosive growth and is ready for the culture that is the thread of Keller Williams.

“One of our opportunities is the ability to revolutionize the real estate market in Mexico,” Obregon said. “There’s a lot of potential on the development side.”

Keller Williams, which is the largest real estate franchise by agent count in North America with more than 100,000 associates, announced the expansion plans this week at Mega Camp convention in Austin. The Texas-based company started expanding beyond North America in 2012, and has regions in the countries of Dubai, Indonesia, South Africa, Turkey, the UK and Vietnam. After record-setting years for growth, productivity and profitability, the company is on a path to become the world’s largest real estate franchise by agent count, transactions and volume.

“We are constantly looking for the right business leaders to share the Keller Williams mission, vision and culture around the world,” said Chris Heller, president of Keller Williams Worldwide. “We are excited by the opportunity to work with Mario and his talented team to help real estate professionals in Mexico grow their business and serve clients at the very highest level.”

KW Mexico will emphasize opportunities for real estate professionals to grow and develop their business skills through leading-edge systems and models, education and technology.

“Keller Williams brings to Mexico great opportunities for wealth building and professionalism,” Gaxoet said. “It’s a perfect fit for our family-based networking culture.”

“Keller Williams will begin a red wave for a new generation of real estate professionals,” Carbonell said.

Quivira Golf Club Announces Opening Date

quivira

Unfolding along windswept dunes, sheer cliffs and desert foothills, Quivira Golf Club is poised to redefine the Cabo golf experience when it opens officially on October 1. The 7,224-yard, par-72 layout features stunning panoramas and breathtaking drops from tee to fairway, Quivira offers players more oceanfront exposure than any other course in Los Cabos. All 18 holes feature outstanding vistas of the Pacific (and in the winter months, views of breaching whales). The $40 million golf facility at Quivira, more than eight years in the making, commences at sea level near the rolling surf before climbing to a highest point of more than 350 feet elevation, where the views are a match for the challenge. During the round, players can refresh themselves at four comfort stations interspersed throughout the all-inclusive facility. Some points of interest include:

  • The three-quarter mile drive to the fifth hole, which crosses arroyo-spanning bridges and traces a switchback route up the side of a mountain, has already been dubbed the “Greatest Drive in Golf.”
  • At more than 200 feet above sea level, the tee at the short par-4 fifth hole offers splendid views of the beach and crashing waves far below.
  • The par-3 sixth, its concave cliff-top green carved from the base of a massive dune, is unforgettable.
  • The par-4 18th hole, stretching to 469 yards, is a classic links-style creation that plays to an infinity-edge green overlooking the sea.

Completing the experience at Quivira Golf Club is a stylish, thatched-roof clubhouse between the first tee and 18th green that offers a large rectangular bar, a casual steakhouse, and ample outdoor seating overlooking the sea. Quivira Golf Club is accessible to guests of the four Pueblo Bonito Oceanfront Resorts and Spas in Los Cabos, and to owners of properties within the Quivira community: Copala, Montecristo Estates Luxury Villas, and Novaispania Residences.

How to Dial Toll Free Numbers from Mexico

Dialing toll-free numbers from Mexico typically involves entering a different code for each three-digit prefix, such as 800, 877 or 888. Depending on how you call, such as from a personal cell phone, pay phone or a hotel lobby, you may be charged for placing an international call even though you are dialing a toll-free number. This varies depending on where you travel in Mexico. For international dialing, such as to place a call in the United States to report a lost or stolen credit card, you must enter the 001 prefix before the main number.

Step 1)   Dial 001, which is the international dial code to call the United States, when you have a dial tone.
Step 2)  Dial 880 if your toll-free number begins with 800.
Dial 881 for an 888 number.
Dial 882 for an 877 number.
Dial 883 for all 866 numbers.
These codes only apply to calls from Mexico.
Step 3) Dial the main seven-digit telephone number normally

Copala at Quivira Los Cabos – A Master Planned Ocean and Golf Community

Print

Copala at Quivira Los Cabos 

Copala at Quivira Los Cabos is the first full ownership real estate at Sunset Beach. The gated community covers over 24 acres on the Pacific coast. The community consists of seven towers of condominiums and 86 homes. The terraced layout for the placement of the residences allows for optimal enjoyment of the expansive golf and ocean views. Phase One is scheduled for completion in 2015/2016. Phase Two and Three will complete in 2016/2017. Copala is located on the 16th fairway of the Jack Nicklaus Signature Quivira golf course – which boasts the most ocean front holes in the entire Los Cabos area.

MODEL NIZA

The Design

The construction design is influenced by the early California hacienda style with red tile roofs, wrought iron details, stone facings and cantera stone finishes. The updated hacienda style homes and condominiums will come standard with granite countertops, Mexican marble flooring and baseboards, alder doors and millwork, aluminum sliding doors and windows, spacious terraces, and quality appliances. The layouts encourage outdoor living and allow for the enjoyment of the prevailing Pacific Ocean breeze.  The homes offer 5 floor plans of three and four bedroom homes all with roof top decks to take advantage of the wide ocean views.  The condominiums include one, two, and three bedrooms from a garden level to a penthouse level.

Infrastructure & Services 

The infrastructure and services being installed at Copala meet the standards of modern resort and residential communities in Mexico.

Water: Both potable and irrigation water are suppled to Copala by a number of developer owned deep wells and the city’s desalinization plant. Irrigation water is also stored on-site until needed.

Phone, Internet and TV: Phone service is provided by fiber optic cables. Every residence will have what is required to contract telephone & internet services through the provider of choice. The TV locations will have hidden wiring for satellite TV along with a pre-wired network for data and internet.

Electricity: Mexico operates on the same 110-volt 60 cycles as the United States and Canada. The Federal Electric Commission provides service to Copala.

Sewer: To eliminate on-site waste water, a number of water treatment plans will be installed. In keeping with the developers commitment to ecological preservation, no wastewater will be discharged into the ocean. Instead, the treated water will be recycled and used for irrigation on the golf course and landscaping.

Direct Financing 

Ownership at Copala is simple with direct financing being offered by the developer. Buyers are pre-approved with no reporting to U.S. credit agencies, as to not affect your investment ratios in the United States. With 50% paid during the construction period, the remaining amount can be financed for 10 years at 6% with no pre-payment penalties. A great solution for leveraging your investment.

 

Planned Amenities 

The Copala Community Club House will have a complete gym, exercise decks for Yoga, Pilates, and Meditation, pool, steam room, kids playgrounds, Cafe and bike/walking paths.

The Quivira Beach club will be a place for enjoyment of the coastal lifestyle with beach cabanas with flat screen TV’s & audio systems, outdoor grill pavilion for dinner parties, beach fire pits lit nightly, pool, private beach massage services, Kid’s Club, casual dining at Oceanside Bar & Grill, coffee bar with wireless internet and telescopes for star gazing and whale watching.

The Golf Clubhouse will have a Pro-Shop, Grill Restaurant & Bar, and special private areas for golf members. The practice facility will include a driving range, pitching, chipping, as well as a 15,000 sq ft putting area.

Transportation will be provided as a courtesy to owners and guest to travel throughout the resort community. Connections can also be made every hour from 10 am to 10 pm to the downtown resorts to enjoy shopping, restaurants, and beach time.
