Everyone at Century 21 did a great job for us in buying our home in Ajijic. We were glad to have the opportunity to meet so many of the staff. We are happy to provide the following testimonial for your website.
In January this year Alix Wilson, Sales Associate, at Century 21 helped us locate a very special home in Ajijic. We had been looking at many houses in the neighborhoods in the Lake Chapala area over the past several years and just had not found the right house.
When we met Alix in January and described the kind of house we were looking for she was able to show us the house that perfectly matched our needs very shortly after we met. We were so excited about the house and made an offer the next day. Throughout the purchase process all the Century 21 staff that we met were very friendly, helpful, knowledgeable and professional. This is the first Mexican property that we have purchased and the Century 21 staff helped us through all the steps needed to make the purchase with confidence. The entire process went smoothly with no complications. We can highly recommend Century 21 and especially Alix Wilson to anyone who is looking to purchase a Mexican property in the Lake Chapala area.

Professional, skillful and intensely loyal at looking out for your best interests is how I would describe Cristina Rojas´s team at Century21 AccessMex in Chapala. This is particularly important within the layered and nuanced Mexican marketplace so opaque the outsiders.
Upon the death of my father, in 2018/, I suddenly found myself with a house to renovate, market and sell. I turned to the group that he had relied upon for the last 25 years while living in Vista del Lago; Cristina Rojas and her team at Century21
In short order, Cristina and her staff:
- Toured the property and pitched the best approach for putting the house on the market
- Coached how much to renovate, what furniture to keep and what to clear away
- Helped to coordinate all the information required by my father´s attorney and Notary Public (key in Mexico).
- Analyzed and assisted my family in maintaining payment of household bills and expenses prior to the sale of the property
- Negotiated the terms of the required severance to be paid to household maid and gardener.
All of this in addition to what one normally expects of a good realtor; setting a smart asking price for a property then acting as skillful intermediary in negotiations with prospective buyers.
After five months of renovations, we received three offers in the first month the house was on the market; accepting the final one made in cash for more than our asking price. My family and I were thrilled and felt deep gratitude for not only what they did on our behalf but what they did with such patience, grace and good humor.
Selling a house is always somewhat of an ordeal. Selling one 1,800 miles from where you live and in Mexico is incredibly daunting! The professionals at Century21 in Chapala became my best advocates and mentors through it all, and I could not recommend them more highly.

You should feel confident in working with the team at Century21. Our experience of buying our home in Ajijic could not have gone more smoothly and Cristina Rojas, our Relator, guided us every step of the way in the purchase process with graciousness and attention to every detail.
We met Cristina for the first time about six years before we decided to take the plunge and as we visited Ajijic during the winters over those interim years she was always available to update us, answer our questions about the market, and show us different houses from time to time. After we were under contract, she kept in contact with us in the United Satets by phone and email and always promptly returned our calls.

I have been dealing with Century 21 since I bought my first house in Mexico years ago.
In that time I have sent funds from Canada where I am a citizen to their bank account to originally buy our property in Villa Nova, Ajijic.
And we hired them to manage our property also. As a result I regularly send monies by wire to their bank account, usually in multiplies of $5,000 worth of pesos a couple times a year.
For a number of years I have been sending to the account titled Chapala Trust and have had no problems. I have also shipped larger amounts to this account to pay for construction at our Ajijic home and yesterday sent $25,000 pesos to the same account which they pass on to an American friend who along with my wife and I are sending a very bright young Mexican to University.
I would like to add that Century 21 has been a great experience for us. They were very professional when we bought our home and have managed our property.
Very well since. We recently purchased another property in Mexico near Manzanillo.
And Century 21 initially helped us with a review of the offering and our offer as we trusted them to act in our best interests.
Chapala Trust account is definitely them as all my funds deposited there are to my account with C21 and are being used to pay my bills locally. I get monthly reports on expenditures and balances.
Cristina Rojas and her team are good honest people and we trust them as do a number of our friends who have also dealt with them
I am a 67 year old Canadian, retired consulting engineer. I am independently wealthy and many years ago I worked as a detective in the British Police. Believe me I would know if there was anything fishy about this firm. They are completely professional and trustworthy.
Good luck and I know you will be very happy and your funds will be safe dealing with Century 21 AccessMex.

I wanted to convey my utmost appreciation and share with you the joy and gratitude I felt after receiving the best world-class customer service I've ever received in my life from a very valuable member of your team, our real estate agent, and now friend, Elena Cabral.
Moving to Mexico's Lake Chapala area had been a dream of mine for over 8 years and although I am Mexican, from the border town of Ciudad Juarez, I emigrated to the United States at a very young age and never came back or visited any other place in Mexico. A little over a year ago I started my journey and began contacting real estate agents about homes I liked from the chapalamls.net site; Elena Cabral was the only agent to not only contact me back but follow-up with me via email and even call me to let me know more details about the home I was interested in. I still remember the excitement of seeing her name on our caller ID, Elena Cabral Alice, Alice was the name of the home we were in love with... The phone was like a hot-potato in my hands, I was so excited that I missed the call...thank God she called right back! She was just calling to check on our trip and to let us know she would be available when we arrived.
After two long days of driving we arrived tired and overwhelmed with our three pets and everything we owned in a little trailer; Elena went out of her way and helped us find a place where we could stay with our pets and our trailer. She even showed us Casa Alice, even though it was after business hours and the very next day she took the day to show us other options and drove us around for several more days just to make sure we had found the perfect home for us. Sure enough, we ended up falling in love with a different home and today after a month in our new home we know we couldn't be happier. This is my third home purchase and the experience has been the best thanks to my agent Elena. Elena made our lives easier by giving us an outstanding experience that helped us throughout the entire process; she was very professional, patient, trustworthy, easy to do business with and it is evident that she loves her job. Century21 AccessMex is very fortunate to have such a talented and proficient real estate agent.

We have recently concluded the sale of our home in Ajijic through the successful efforts of Century 21 sales agent Alix Wilson. This was an exemplary effort on Alix’s part along with the excellent support of the Century 21 staff. Sales efforts prior to our recent sale ran into many difficulties, but Alix and the Century 21 staff stood their ground and we successfully resolved the problems involved.
We are pleased to give Alix a 5 STAR rating.
