About Me

After a 20+ year career in sales and sales management culminating in a position as the Northeast Regional Director for Automatic Data Processing, Mark made the decision to move to Puerto Vallarta and open up a real estate office in the local
area. He has a passion for buying/selling real estate and has a history of strong marketing and negotiating skills.

Mark believes it is not only his duty to represent his clients to the best of his ability, but also to educate them throughout every step of the process. He works to arm them with top notch information and market insight so they can make the best possible decision. Mark is honest, professional, knowledgeable, and more than willing to share his real world experience regarding the Mexican real estate market.

In his time away from the office, he enjoys spending time at the beach with his beautiful wife and two sons. He likes to read, run, swim and spend time outdoors!

My mission is to maintain my reputation through honesty and integrity in dealing with all clients. I will be patient with my clients and be an excellent listener to their wants and needs. I will strive to be the realtor you want to do business with year-after-year and who you will proudly refer to your friends and family. My goal is to exceed your every expectation in my representation of you in your next real estate transaction. I will earn your respect, trust and confidence based on performance, results, and always maintaining the highest ethical standards.

Agent's Reviews

Highly recommend MexHome and Mark Vavra to anyone considering purchasing property

“We recently finalized our purchase of a home in Sayulita with the invaluable assistance of Mark Vavra and his support team at MexHome.   From our first conversation Mark quickly understood the type of properties that would be of interest to us.   He made optimal use of our time when we traveled to Sayulita to view properties, showing us properties that closely met our criteria.  He was diligent and communicative throughout the process, and professionally handled delicate negotiations.  The closing went smoothly, especially with the assistance of Mark’s able assistant, Vivianne.   Based on our experience we can with confidence highly recommend MexHome and Mark Vavra to anyone considering purchasing property in Sayulita.”

We are so grateful to have found Mark

“We are so grateful to have found Mark to help us purchase our perfect casa in Sayulita! He always responds immediately and has a lot of valuable thoughts. It was extremely important for us to have someone trust worthy and knowledgeable on the ground in Sayulita, as we are not local. He found us a place we hadn’t seen online! Mark is a fun person to work with, we enjoyed our experience immensely and highly recommend him and MexHome and hope to work with him again in the future (and see him around town!

You can stop worrying once you hire Mark!

When buying real estate in Mexico you need to have someone you can trust, who will look out for your best interests. It can be very nerve wracking to navigate a real estate transaction in a different country where you don’t know the laws and are transferring large sums of money. Mark Vavra will take care of you! You can trust Mark to put his clients’ interests first, be a fair broker, communicative, and patient!! He is knowledgeable about both living in Sayulita and renting out your home there. He and the team at MexHome will go the extra kilometer to help you and connect you to different people you need to start your new life in paradise! Also shout out to Noemi for her fabulous support.

A buyer’s ace in the hole!

I’ve had long experience with the buying and selling of homes, and have worked with many excellent realtors. But Mark Vavra of MexHome is a cut above. My casita in Sayulita was my first international purchase, so my knowledge of “how-to” was non existent. Mark guided me flawlessly through the baffling purchase process; his advice and knowledge was spot on, and his unflagging positivity eliminated any jitters. As far as I’m concerned, Mark is literally the best – a buyer’s ace in the hole.

Best decision in my life!

Buying a home in Mexico can seem very challenging,overwhelming and at times even an impossible venture. Mark and the MexHome team guided us through the entire process step by step answering every one of our questions honestly and accurately , even if we asked the same question more than once. Mark and his team patiently spent time searching ,researching and ultimately providing us with a number excellent homes to choose from that he almost intuitively knew would meet our style, needs and budget.

Best decision in my life was to move to Mexico. Second best decision? Using the team at MexHome.

MexHome is amazing!!!

MexHome is amazing!!! We were impressed from our first meeting with Mark. He was well informed about comparable properties in our town. He brought in a photographer to show our home to its best advantage. Johanne guided us through collating our documents to formalize the listing. Mark presented us with all of the offers we received. He answered all of our many questions. Aaron and Javier helped us prepare for and accompanied us to the closing. We closed the deal, and saw the funds in our Canadian bank account 35 days after the accepted offer! We could not be happier. We are already recommending MexHome to friends who are thinking of selling their home in San Pancho. (And would recommend MexHome to anyone in the Puerto Vallarta area!)

We just completed the sale of our beautiful home in Sayulita! with Mexhome

We just completed the sale of our beautiful home in Sayulita! with MexHome.  Mark and the team  could not have been more professional. They were attentive and quickly responded to any questions or concerns immediately. When we went to sign papers Mark was right beside us making sure we understood everything as much information was in Spanish, it was helpful to have the extra reassurance and clarification. Everyone we dealt with at MexHome were friendly, personable and both my husband and myself felt like they had our best interests at heart. If you are looking to buy or sell I would not hesitate to employ their services!

We strongly recommend MexHome’s professionalism!

It was a lucky day when Gary and I bumped into Mark while strolling the streets of Telluride! As he was telling us all the wonderful things about Sayulita, we told him we already owned a home there. Little did we know at the time that Mark would sell us another home in Sayulita and later sell our first home! Unbeknownst to most buyers, real estate transactions in Mexico can be trying and Mark and his excellent team at MexHome guided us through all obstacles. Not only did he manage many negotiations but was able to resolve issues to have a smooth closing. The marketing, showings and the communications helped us feel comfortable dealing in MX while back in the US. We strongly recommend MexHome’s professionalism!

Wonderful Experience

I would like to share my Wonderful experience that we had with Mark while buying a property in Sayulita. Mark was willing to show us around to all the different homes that we had picked. Each one he would tell us the pros and cons of the property. He was fantastic during the process of picking out a home, and all the way through the purchasing process. We always felt very comfortable purchasing a home in a foreign country because Mark explained everything to us in detail. We are extremely pleased with the entire process in the home that we purchased with Mark as our realtor. I would highly recommend you using Mark to buy a home.
