“We just closed the sale of our condo at Birds of Paradise. Jeff was our agent, and he did a really great job for us. He started by giving us a “realistic” price for our property, considering location, condition, etc. Thus we didn’t have any unrealistic expectations in mind. The final selling price was close to the asking price.

What we liked about Jeff was that he always kept us informed as to what was going on. He never hesitated to pick up the phone and call us, even with bad news. (Like when one buyer couldn’t come up with the deposit). Whenever I had a query, he always responded promptly, never left me hanging. I now understand that the sale of a property in Mexico is a lengthy process involving many steps and lots of paperwork. Jeff led us thru the process and did everything to make it as seamless as possible.

We will certainly recommend Jeff to anyone who is selling a property. FYI, we got Jeff’s name from a recommendation by Pat T. Jeff also sold her unit at Birds of Paradise, and she was very pleased with Jeff’s service.”

“Hal Forsyth was able to sell our property quickly. He worked with us every step of the way, and All questions were answered. Because of his professionalism, knowledge and honesty the entire process was a positive and successful experience..”

“This was the second time we’ve used Jeff Mcgaver and he didn’t disappoint. We were in the US for several months and needed to purchase this time sight unseen. Jeff previewed several houses for us. On the ones we were interested in he did virtual walk throughs with us. One home that looked really good had a lot of traffic noise and a west exposure we would have been unaware of, saved us from a mistake. We are very pleased with the house we ended up purchasing. Jeff spent a lot of time taking pictures doing virtual walk throughs and answering questions.”
Cherie And Mike W.
“I just wanted you to know how much I enjoyed working with Jeff McGaver during my acquisition of my property at Birds of Paradise. From the moment of initial contact (while still in New Hampshire), to my arrival in Guadalajara, Jeff’s friendly manner, attention to detail and knowledge of both selling and buying real estate, immediately underscored my confidence that I was in most capable hands. He truly went above and beyond the usual agent responsibilities by assisting with my storage and moving needs, and was quick to respond to any questions that arose throughout the entire process.

In my experience of nine real estate purchases, without exaggerating… Jeff is second to none. Your agency is indeed fortunate to have him among your team!”
Rosetta J
“Judit was my realtor. I am reminded every single day of how fortunate we are to have her as our realtor. I don’t know what series of events conspired to put us in THIS house in THIS neighborhood, but I’m thankful.”
Eric Woodward
“Hola Jeff! First and foremost, you absolutely exceeded expectations. We gave you a moving target, and you responded! You showed us a well balanced cross section, in both price range and locations. As we said from the outset, this was a scouting and shopping trip. I can honestly say we are MUCH closer to making decesions, but that time is still a year or more away. The election will be a huge factor on the size required. I’m hooked. Just a matter of how many more and when. The good news, you will get my business and happy referrals when we come! Send me any links you can to give you good feed back!”

Will do! Many friends are inquiring about our findings. We were fortunate to have connected with such a local fan! Your years in that previous life gave you the skill set, but your love for your area is what makes people trust you to have their best interrests at heart. Looking forward to our next steps!"
Susan and Mark
"When Elizabeth referred me to you (Jeff McGaver) I expected that you would be a great Realtor (and you are), but the passion you demonstrated for finding my perfect house was above and beyond anything I’ve ever experienced.

Rather than simply asking me where I wanted to live, we talked about how I wanted to live."
"Jeff McGaver is an attentive listener and put a lot of effort into understanding our priorities. This allowed him to identify the specific properties that would interest us. He found us the absolute perfect house! Jeff is very resourceful, proactive, responsive and detail-oriented. He has a broad network of contacts and ensured we had all the information we needed to confidently close our transaction. We give Jeff McGaver our highest endorsement and would be pleased to speak with any of Jeff’s prospective clients with further details."
Gary and Ann
"Just wanted to take the opportunity to express our gratitude to Judit for all her assistance throughout our sales process. Her knowledge of local real estate and staging of our house was invaluable. We would highly recommend Judit Rajhathy, if you are selling or buying a home at Lake Chapala."
Terry and Bernadette Coogle
"We highly recommend you (Jeff McGaver) for your professionalism, real estate knowledge and continued support as we get a lay of the land. We really enjoyed getting to know you and working closely with you in finding our new home"
Larry and Cynthia
"Lake Chapala Real Estate is a wonderful Real Estate company."
Angie C.
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
"The market is very tight for buyers and there wasn’t anything on the market we liked. That’s when Jeff McGaver really went to work calling other agents to find if they knew of anything not on market like we were looking for. He found a few for us to consider and took us out the next day. We walked in the first one I saw the view, started to cry and we didn’t need to look further!

The offer and closing process was flawless as has been Jeff’s follow up in arranging for us to meet with property manager to care for our home until we move in January. His assistance to us has been amazing. We have come to view him as not only our realtor but our friend."
Cherie and Mike
"Ajijic and area is a fabulous place. And the staff at Lake Chapala Real Estate are very knowledgeable and helpful."
"The staff at Lake Chapala Real Estate were very accommodating and helpful in listening to what were looking for and pointing us to houses for sale that would meet our requirements."
Bob & Vanessa.
"We found a fixer-upper on a large lakefront property. After extensive renovation we have a beautiful home at a great price."

Judit Rajthay,

"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
"Raul (the agent I worked with) went out of his way to make my acquisition happen, ironing out several stumbling blocks and even finding a private lender to float a small mortgage for me for a reasonable price – an almost impossible task for a foreign buyer. Lake Chapala Real Estate's staff also took care of all the minutiae surrounding the sale, like putting the electric and phone bills in my name, helping with Internet set-up while I was out of town and generally always being willing to help with any questions I had and issues that cropped up. And always with a smile!

From what I saw, the agency is run with high standards and an eye towards due diligence. The agents are very knowledgeable both about the local real estate market and real estate legislation and they combine this knowledge with small-town customer service – almost a lost art nowadays. My experience with this agency was a very positive one and I therefore do not hesitate to recommend it to anyone thinking about relocating to the area.

My wife and I moved to the Chapala/Ajijic area from the Baja. We did not know much about the area in terms of communities and available real estate. The staff at Lake Chapala Real Estate were very accommodating and helpful in listening to what we were looking for and pointing us to Houses for Sale that would meet our requirements. In our travels from one viewing to another we were given an education about the various areas and what they had to offer us. Lake Chapala Real Estate's team were there from start to finish in our search and purchase right through the close of sale. We in fact looked at some 40 houses, and their only concern was helping us find a home that suited us.

We can best describe Lake Chapala Real Estate’s support to us as a complete service, including providing information that helped us to adjust to our new community and offering some ideas that helped us see the potential of ideas for planning renovations. Our thanks to them for all their assistance. We were extremely happy for their help. Sincerely, "
Bob and Vanessa
"Hal is EVERYTHING one could ask for in a Real Estate Agent, PLUS just a WONDERFUL human being!"
Mark Harper & Brian Fackler
"Thank you, thank you, thank you again for handling this land transaction for us. We could not have done it without you and your great team.

We are eternally grateful for your contribution to the cause of the welfare of the Mexican people in the Las Pintintas community and beyond. I can’t tell you enough how much I thank God for you and the help you have provided us.
