SAN MIGUEL DE ALLENDE, Mexico, October 14, 2021–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Colonial Homes San Miguel recently celebrated its one-year anniversary with a record-breaking home priced at US$4.7 million. The company is co-owned by Greg Gunter, previously the #2 ranked Realtor nationwide among Mexico’s largest franchise and a certified Luxury Collection specialist, and his co-Broker, Alma Cecilia Ramirez, highly respected as a veteran of local real estate since 1995.
San Miguel de Allende, designated as Condé Nast Traveler’s No. 1 City in the World three separate times, proves increasingly popular with high-net-worth individuals at or nearing retirement, though sales-volume growth has been at both ends of the spectrum, from starter homes under the US$400,000 mark to sales generally from US$750,000 to US$1.5 million. Their US$4.7MM listing is the city’s second highest asking price.
“Celebrating our one-year anniversary this year is a truly meaningful milestone,” said Greg Gunter, owner of the first and flagship Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices franchise for the brand in Mexico. “We are extremely proud and grateful for all our clients who have trusted us from the beginning to help with one of the biggest life decisions. The fact that our client bestowed their trust in us for such a record-breaking estate is enormous testament to our reputation.”
As the city’s exclusive Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices franchise, the brokerage stresses to clients its unique advantage of being a direct franchisee, not a disconnected master franchise, like all other real estate brands in Mexico who simply share an American franchise name but have no connection to their U.S. counterparts. Gunter notes that his office—like all Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices network member offices—has a direct connection to the 4,000 Luxury Collection Realtors in the U.S., allowing better exposure to a broader market for Luxury Collection listings like the US$4.7MM home just listed.
The picturesque, colorful Mexican hillside town of San Miguel de Allende has been popular for older buyers and retirees from the U.S. and Canada. Post pandemic, many people are more aware of the fragility of life and how they can maximize their enjoyment of it even more than before. Moving to the #1 ranked city in the world seems high on people’s list of ways to live a more fulfilling life.
Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices is a global residential real estate brokerage franchise network with more than 50,000 real estate professionals and nearly 1,500 offices throughout the U.S., Canada, Mexico, Europe, the Middle East, India and the Bahamas. Last year, the Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices global network represented more than $138 billion in real estate sales volume.
Alma Cecilia Ramirez, co-Broker of the firm, also commented on the company’s anniversary, “We have a gifted team of individuals who strive to deliver the best results, and I couldn’t be prouder of the work that has been produced over the past year.”
San Miguel currently remains clearly a buyers’ market, perhaps one of the few remaining in the world. But the word is out among the international cognoscente, and the market is quickly stabilizing. For those looking for a post-pandemic lifestyle enhancement at a fraction of the cost, it seems the time to buy in San Miguel de Allende is now.
