Judit Rajhathy was born in Budapest Hungary but emigrated with her family to Canada during the 1956 Revolution. She attended Carleton University in Ottawa and moved to Nova Scotia where she raised her family. It was during this time that Judit became an active part of the real estate world. She became an agent first and then went on to buy, renovate and sell her own properties. As a result of a health crisis, Judit embarked on a search for wellness and became an licensed acupuncturist and holistic nutritionist and eventually owned and operated a wellness clinic, New Directions in Health in Dartmouth NS. She also hosted two popular television shows, and wrote a best selling health book, Free to Fly: a journey toward wellness which she promoted across the country for several years prior to her move to the Lakeside area. Wanting to become physically fit herself, Judit opened and operated a popular fitness centre, Change of Pace, geared for seniors. At the same time, Judit built and sold seven homes and recently realized how much she still loves the real estate industry and is committed to connecting happy buyers with sellers. Judit enjoys sharing her love and intricate knowledge of the Lakeside area with newcomers. She is dedicated to making your dreams a reality. Judit makes things happen.



“When we decided to sell our house Judit was the first person we thought of. She is very knowledgeable about Mexican real estate and immediately found a buyer. Everything went very smoothly. We would highly recommend Judit for all your real estate needs.“ -Michael Beatty
“To whom it may concern, I recently hired Judit Rajhathy as my listing agent to sell my home. I had used a different agent to buy the home but after a bad experience I chose to switch to Judit. She showed me her professional skills with home setup, decorating and then In marketing of my home. It sold in a few weeks… close to full price. I’d use her again anytime.“ -Mike Malinak
“Judit Rajhathy did a fantastic job in listing our house and then helping us sell it. Even before we decided to list with her Judit met with us and gave us a lot of good advice of what to look for when buying another house. Once we contracted with her to sell our house it became a simple and fast process. Judit knew all the papers we would need and everything we would have to do to complete the process. She was totally organized, efficient, and always on time. She was always gracious and kind and also had very good co-workers who were the same. Judit knew what our house could sell for and had a strategy for getting us the best price for our house. She also knew which clients would be worth our time. Our house sold very quickly and at a great price. She was with us every step of the way and made sure we were taken care of. I would highly recommend Judit Rajhathy to help you sell your house.“ -Penny and Bob Fazio
“It is my pleasure to write a testimonial on Judit Rajhathy.  She has shown right from the start that she was extremely competent in real estate transactions. I loved how she quickly responded to all my questions.  I could not have been happier working with her.  Judit answered the phone every time I called with more questions. Unfortunately, my dear friends passed away the same year and the siblings lived in Canada.  They asked me to be their power of attorney dealing with the probate and sale of their home.  Judit staged the home and even provided several articles of her own. She rearranged furniture to make the home look appealing to prospective buyers. I could not have been happier working with Judit. She remained confident when we encountered challenges with the probate. I would highly recommend Judit to anyone selling or buying a house.  She is the ultimate professional.“ -Saludos, Donna
“During our 53 years of marriage we have bought and sold several homes. We both agree that the process of this past sale was one of the most pleasant that we have ever experienced. Judit is not only knowledgeable in her craft but very pleasant to be around. We feel quite certain that this will be our last real estate transaction. But if not we would definitely have Judit on our team.“ -Karen and Joe Schmitz. October 2022.
“The listing, the advertising, the sale, and the closing of my house were all handled smoothly, efficiently, and quickly by Judit and her assistants. I was very pleased and I highly recommend Judit to anyone in our Lakeside area for their real estate needs.“ -Caroline McCormack. October 2022.
“I just closed on my house in Mexico today and I am over the moon happy. It’s a beautiful house and everyone I have dealt with during this process has been so thoughtful and kind and professional. I’m so glad to be coming back to Mexico. Just Google the Lake Chapala area of Mexico, and you will be amazed at how beautiful it is here. My realtor is Judit Rajhathy. Judit was my realtor when I bought a house here in 2015. I could not dream of a better realtor or a better person than Judit. She goes above and beyond the call of duty and helps you make the transition so easy and guides you to the places you need to go. She is a beautiful woman inside and out. Thank you Judit for all your help.“ -Vicki Aliff. October 2022.
“My husband and I have worked with many realtors and, we have never had anyone like Judit. Judit is honest, knowledgeable, reliable and trustworthy. She went above and beyond to stage our home and it sold rather quickly, she made the entire process seamless and hassle free. If we had to do this again, we definitely would use Judit.“ -Mrs. and Mr. Ziegler. October 2022.
“I want to thank both of you ladies for your excellent work on the sale of our house. Judit, I can not believe the number of showings you arranged and work you did in finalizing the sale. Barbara, the work you did and the help that I got from you was fantastic help in getting the POA. Without your help I don’t think I would have gotten through the process. Tremendous support. Beth and I were so pleased with the professional manner that we witnessed. Great Job.“ -Bob & Beth
“I just sold my house of 14 years in Upper Ajijic through Judit Rajhathy. She is by far the best real estate agent in Ajijic. She works out of the Lake Chapala Real Estate Agency. My place was sold in about 2 weeks from the time it was listed, while my neighbors waited 2 years for theirs to sell. I can’t praise her efficiency, dedication, and honesty enough. There is no better agent in Lakeside.“ -Miriam G

“Judit is an exceptional agent! We cannot say enough about her professionalism and knowledge of the industry. She has high integrity, is conscientious and tenacious.

She showed great attention to the details which allowed the transactions to go smoothly and to close on time.” – Farid and Aida Aho
“We had our home listed for six months with another agency and no sale. Judit listed it, staged it, had amazing photos and video done, held an open house and it sold within one week! We couldn’t be more happy! In fact, we are blown away! Judit is amazing! THANK YOU JUDIT” – Maria and John Staton
“Judit is a great person to sell houses! She sold two of mine that I had a hard time selling – she works hard at it. She is a nice person, is honest and forthright and loves people! This is what I attribute her success to. I strongly recommend her and if I ever had a house to sell again she would be selling it – no one else!” – Stu Barfitt

“Judit came highly recommended and followed through. She quickly got the home beautifully photographed and advertised bringing in the buyers in just months! She will not disappoint!” – Bruce Joachim
“Judit is a fantastic realtor. Our experience with her as our agent was nothing short of amazing. We live in Los Angeles and this was our first home purchase in Mexico. Judit immediately shared our excitement for our home purchase, even staying up into the wee hours the night we put an offer in on the house guiding us through all the steps involved, getting passport and document information, etc… Once we had put down the deposit Judit answered our seemingly endless string of questions via email, text and even several telephone conversations. Once we closed our purchase and arrived in the area Judit was (and continues to be), a font of information on goods and services new homeowners require, which as a 17 year resident of the Lake Chapala area she is most qualified. Judit and the staff at Lake Chapala Real Estate made our real estate purchase a very smooth and enjoyable process and we would highly recommend her services.” – Brian & Pamela Hughes
“Judit represented us in both the sale of our home in Lourdes and the purchase of our home in Riberas del Pilar. Both deals went through smoothly and efficiently and we closed without a hitch. Judit took the time to check out our home, made it look good, took professional photos, wrote a stunning description and within 24 hours we had a full price offer! Judit works hard and is always on the go! Whether it is your home she is selling or she is finding you a home to purchase you are in capable and extremely energetic hands! We highly recommend her!” – Chris Bohnert and Terry Rosson
“Judit was great. She staged my condo so beautifully that for a moment I felt like staying. And the condo sold in about a month which was way shorter than I had anticipated. Judit kept me informed whenever she showed the condo.” – Gita Fendelman
“I have to thank Judit for the true professionalism she showed with the showing and selling of my home in Ajijic. Your taste in staging and photography showed my home beautifully and I thank you so much for all you have done for me. I couldn’t have done without you and your hard working team!” – Janet Day
“Once we agreed that Judit would list my property; she hit the ground running. Judit immediately appreciated the unique features of this house. Within days, she had the house staged perfectly to create the perfect vibe! She has a true gift for this. Her eloquent property description and choice of photos attracted the perfect Buyer… the same day it appeared on the MLS! I could not hope for a better response. Muchas Gracias for your help AND the nice Closing gift to boot!” – Betsy S.
“When seeking representation, I strongly felt that I needed to work with someone who not only had the key real estate set of skills such as local knowledge and experience, real time market knowledge, respect within the real estate profession and community, a proven history of success, excellent communication skills, and a strong client advocacy approach but I also wanted to have confidence in the integrity and business acumen of both the agent and their firm. I found all of these qualities in working with Judit Rajhathy and Lake Chapala Real Estate. In working with Judit, I not only benefited from her real estate skill set but also her deep knowledge of the community and the many resources needed to make Lakeside our home. Since we needed to do a fair amount of renovation to the home we purchased, we needed lots of guidance and an array of skilled local professionals. We still say that Judit has the deepest rolodex we ever experienced and her relentless commitment to ensuring that our needs were both understood and met was huge for us. Judit did not simply give us numbers to call but facilitated meetings with architects, contractors, and skilled workers and frequently she made herself available to join the meetings. Her honest feedback was crucial to making many of our choices and her skills in negotiating frequently resulted in very fair and reliable bids. The transformation of our home to its current, lovely state is a true credit to Judit’s knowledge of resources and her extraordinary customer service. In closing, I would add that Judit demonstrated two additional and essential behaviors that are simply not found with all agents. First, she did not try to up-sell us: she listened to our parameters and researched properties that met our requirements. If there was a property that was above the price range but she thought could be negotiated to our limits, she would include it for our consideration….there simply was no teaser stuff. Second, Judit provided honest and straightforward facts even when those facts could potentially impact an offer. She said more than once “I consider my clients to be potential neighbors and friends” and it was clear that our short and long term satisfaction was a real priority for Judit. I strongly endorse using Judit Rajhathy’s services for your real estate needs… will gain a competent and trustworthy professional real estate experience and potentially a friend as well.” – Mimi Hellman
