Pedicure at Penasco Beauty Center-Rocky Point

I stopped in today to visit the owner of Penasco Beauty Center, Kit Anderson, and my friend Iza, Kit’s manager who also offers a Lukeville post office mail pick up service. In Mexican Beach Bum’s fashion, I made a spur of the moment decision to have a pedicure. I have been so busy these last few months working on my blogs, website, selling Rocky Point Real Estate, and was hired by other real estate agents here in Rocky Point to help them with their websites or newsletters and promotions, that I haven’t take the necessary “me” time.
So today, since my next appointment rescheduled, I asked Iza for a pedicure. She gave me to Veronica. She was awesome. She has been doing this for 10 years. I got a french manicure too but didn’t take a photo of it. I had gone next door to Super Ley to get some container food to go, then returned to enjoy my lunch and a much needed pedicure.IMG_1118 IMG_1111

My feet are so smooth after the paraffin wax!! Notice the foot bath, in all my years of getting pedicures, this is a first. They tell me that for obvious hygiene reasons, they change out the plastic insert for clients! That was cool to see.

I recommend this to anyone that needs to slow down, even if for a little bit. Good to get a “recharge”.

Penasco Beauty Center is across from Super Ley in Rocky Point, on the side street next to a coffee shop. Stop in sometime or visit their Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/PenascoBeautyCtr

Moving to Mexico

This is a message I had sent to some people that were inquiring about a “for sale by owner” property in Puerto Penasco-Rocky Point Mexico, on the Forum www.rockypointtalk.com and after I made some comments, it turned into what looked like a nice blog article. Here it is:

Hi Dina and Chris,
I am happy to hear you are moving here to Rocky Point! I am also happy to see that you reached out for advice, and that there are caring people offering advice, their experiences, and links to Real estate agent sites and recommendations. I am familiar with the majority of the problems some of these members had either experienced or heard about. It was really the wild west many years ago, now, but in the recent years the State of Sonora has required agents to be licensed, which means in 2008 and 2009, in the FIRST classes, they paid $1250 USD for their Diplomado class (I have the list of attendees, and over 200 other agents and myself included, had attended the Diplomado) That came at a time where the U.S. economy and Mexico sales were declining, we had less sales, less commission, but MORE expenses. In addition, we paid for the “no criminal” record from the police station, and approx. $100 more to give our representative our application packages to carry them to Hermosillo, our state capital. Plus we sat our butts in 100 hours of classes including ethics. They held these classes on our prime business days when clients arrive, Friday evening and Saturday during the day! This is the tip of the iceberg. It was a huge deal to get a State of Sonora license here and we value ours immensely because of what it took to get it. The State of Sonora has had AMPI organize the classes, and we just finished the whole month of September. I was there for my license renewal but there were over 20 new agents in town learning the proper way to do business and the classes were excellent and essential to have the correct knowledge of how to navigate Mexican real estate transactions, INCLUDING RENTALS!! There are new rules applying to rentals, glad it doesn’t apply to me, I prefer sales. (by the way, license enforcement is a whole other story!)
You are going to have many of your own experiences that will include being told 20 different answers to just one question, and your patience will be tested. If you are like many of us, you will have earned your right of passage! It takes a special person to live in Mexico full time. After a few years living and selling real estate in Rocky Point, I moved to Puerto Vallarta for nearly 3 years, also selling real estate. Yes there were unethical people there too, but the majority are honorable and GOOD everywhere you go. I moved back to Rocky Point a couple months ago and I am seeing several new faces here. There are so many neat events to attend and things to do. I hope you are getting invited by your real estate agent and/or friends you have made.
By the way, if you choose to deal with an AMPI member, (they are required to be licensed) you will have an avenue to file a complaint if you have a poor experience. You can ask AMPI for a report, there were hardly any this past year, I feel its partly due to proper education of the agents.
The best thing you are doing is your due diligence.

If you chose Dee Brooks, as someone suggested, check out her website and see how much she helps the animals in need, gotta love her for her kindness!
If you chose REMAX, you will find yourself in a friendly helpful family business that cares. I see that someone put a link of http://www.playa-encanto.com where there is the MacKenzies listed as well, and also listed is Jonni Francis, who has been here many, many years. I’ve done business with all of them and have dealt with most everyone in town, with no issues at all.

There ARE escrow accounts available, and there are “middlemen” here that are licensed and trusted attorneys that coordinate transactions properly, with no risk for the seller and buyer and real estate agency. Just keep on interviewing until you get the gut feeling you are in the right place. You can perform an MLS search by clicking on the “Search the MLS” tab on the website http://www.rockypointampi.com

You had asked about foreclosed homes. I know of some condos, not on the internet, and I know of a Las Conchas home that is a fixer upper, it’s a family home paid off, just that the child doesn’t want it, selling “as is’. It’s not on the MLS yet or any website, will most likely sell before it hits the internet, but these “deals” are hard to come by. Just keep searching and good luck to you and maybe we will meet around town. You can see my photo, so please look for me, the www.MexicanBeachBum.com (robin) I can tell you some of the cool events we have in town. Also try visitng http://www.rockypoint360.com and subscribe to their newsletter.
oops, I tend to write stories, and I think I will make this my next blog! Also you can visit http://www.mexicomyspace.com a site for expats. Tell George I sent you, he loves to write, he even has books on Amazon about Mexico.
WELCOME HOME DINA AND CHRIS!!

Mexico: A Smart Investment Opportunity?

Mexico: A Smart Investment Opportunity?

Thinking of making an investment in Mexico? Wells Fargo strategists explain why it could be a smart investment decision.wf_invest_mexico_lg
News stories from Mexico rarely highlight the country’s robust economic growth, a burgeoning car export industry or its rising national productivity. But many observers argue that the economic story is defining Mexico’s future. Investors who 10 years ago looked beyond the headlines and found merit in the country’s economic fundamentals and enlightened fiscal policies have seen the Mexican Bolsa equity index average a 21.7 percent annual gain during the 2003–2012 decade, according to Bloomberg and calculations from Wells Fargo Advisors.
