After many years of vacationing in Mexico, we decided we were at the point financially to seriously consider purchasing our eventual retirement home in the Puerto Vallarta area.

We began our search by looking through MLS listings and saw several condos that we felt we could afford. We happened upon some listings with Penny Isabel, with Timothy Real Estate. We emailed Penny, describing our situation, price-range and the amenities we were hoping to get with our new home.

Penny responded very quickly and we began our search. Penny sent us links to several listings, which we looked at and pared down to 8-10 and we booked our trip to PV for the last week of February. (2017)

We arranged our day to see our choices and Penny picked us up promptly at 9 AM. We spent the day with her, as she showed us 8 different condos, all of which were firmly within our price point. Penny is so wonderful. She is very professional and knowledgeable and we had a wonderful day with her.

We found a condo we believed would be perfect and we offered a contract on a unit. We were unable to come to an agreement on the first condo, but Penny had another listing in the same community, for an even better price. And the view was much better than our original choice. We offered a contract and the sale was accepted the same day. We left to come back to St. Louis the next day, with our dream home nearly in hand.

There were many twists and turns with our purchase, but Penny and her team walked us through the entire process professionally and courteously. Penny called us in the States when we had questions we couldn’t figure out. When we were nervous about the process, she was able to explain everything and ease our minds. Buying a property in a foreign country from 1800 miles away is very daunting at times, but Penny and her team were always there for us.

Our story has an added twist. After taking possession of our dream, we have decided to retire early. We will be living full time in La Cruz, by year’s end (2017).  Penny was a very positive influence in making this an easy decision.

We wholeheartedly recommend Penny Isabel as your potential Real Estate Representative. Without her expertise and guidance, we may not have made this decision. Thank you, very much, Penny. You are the best. You helped make our dream come true.

The trust I had in Penny is what led my decision to buy a home by the beach.  I had not even seen the property before buying it, but the great job she and her team did helped me make the decision without that being a problem.  I decided to have Penny represent me because she made the decision simple.  Since day one I felt I was heard, and that my needs were understood.  They knew what I was looking for and what I needed in order to buy property. That created a professional relationship immediately.  Penny was my eyes since I never had a chance to see the property. She paid attention to details and made me feel safe during the whole process.  Besides helping us buy our place, the team is still taking care of the property one year later.  There is not much I can say the team could have done better, this continued help after the purchase is more than the best so far.  I would definitely recommend Penny and the team to others in a search for a home by the beach!

As someone working in a helping profession, I really appreciated the care and time you took to understand my needs and get me where I needed to go for the sale of my home. Thank you!

I can’t thank you enough for all you did. I know it was your recommendations for staging that helped to get our home sold as quickly as it did. I will introduce you to anyone I know looking to buy or sell a home.


We could not have done this without you, thank you for finding us the perfect home in the sun!
