More About the Professional:
Jim has fully embraced and thoroughly enjoys being a Sanmiguelense. His first excursion with his husband, Iven, to San Miguel de Allende in 2002 resulted in multiple visits each year until their move here to live full-time in 2011.
They bought their first property in 2005, a lot, and in 2008 another property which also contains rental casitas. A native of Kansas, Jim holds a B.A. in Communication from Fort Hays State University and an M.B.A. from Baker University.
Being a homeowner and landlord here in San Miguel, Jim understands the laws, process, and unique environment of real estate in Mexico. Jim listens to his clients and has the ability to view a property through the eyes of each client with their unique and specific needs in mind.
An avid dog-lover with three chow chows, he is also involved in the community, lending support to animal, human rights, health and welfare, and cultural organizations. In 2012 he worked with a core group of LGBT expats to help organize what became Colectivo 41, now a 100% Mexican-lead non-profit organization focusing on support and the specific needs of the LGBT youth of San Miguel de Allende. Ask Jim about the significance of the number 41 in LGBT Mexican history.
Jim is looking forward to working with you.
With perfect Spring-like weather year-round, San Miguel de Allende is a relaxed colonial town in the high desert mountains of Central Mexico. Long an international haven for writers, artists, and performers, San Miguel just can't help but to be gay-friendly and accepting.
San Miguel is home to lively bars and dance clubs, all of them fairly gay-friendly, and some with a noticeably gay following. A new gay bar recently opened giving a new option to the nightlife. Generally low-key during the week, San Miguel de Allende comes alive on weekends and especially on holidays and long weekends. The number of LGBT-owned business is on the rise.
With all the cultural and physical activities San Miguel de Allende has to offer, so say only the beach is missing. NO! Within a 10-minute drive one can find multiple hot springs. A favorite boasts three different pools, the next warmer than the previous, plus a grotto with the warmest waters coming from the wall. Find a spot on the lawn or terrace to spend the afternoon with a full-service restaurant and bar.
Previously noted for retirement-age expats, this is no longer the case. The Internet infrastructure has improved vastly in recent years. So much so that the international population is bringing the median age down because of the ability to work remotely.
Full-time or part-time, San Miguel de Allende is a perfect place to call home.
