Dawn first visited Isla Mujeres in 1993 and fell in love. She introduced Tom in 2002 and they have closely followed the Isla Mujeres real estate market ever since. As a real estate investors themselves, Dawn and Tom are keenly aware of the need to have people and companies on you team that you can trust, in order to maximize ROI. They have been “gringo-ed” (Google it if you need to!), and in part, created IVPM to prevent others from suffering the same fate.
In their vast business experience, it is what you don’t know that you don’t know, that causes the biggest problems! Dawn & Tom strive to educate their clients on how they can avoid very common pitfalls when investing in and operating foreign real estate holdings.
