We met Daniella and Sarah in November 2021 who came highly recommended by our friends. We immediately found them very easy to work with and after a couple of days of visiting units, Daniella found our dream home. 

We can’t say enough about the amount of support and follow up they have given us after our purchase. Always professional and quick to respond, their efforts are appreciated. They have made the purchase of our new property in Mexico a very positive experience and we’re sure they will offer the same sincere care in helping you find your special place too.

Sarah is first class at everything she does! Truly helped ease a very hectic home buying process from start to finish. If you are considering buying or just have a few questions, please reach out to her, as her priority is to provide value to the customer and not just another sale.

She has been in the industry for years and can provide you with everything you will need. She was able to answer questions about loans, construction, what areas to stay away from, builders, rentals, paperwork, infrastructure, and even mezcal recommendations! Worried about pushy realtors that will tell you exactly what you want to hear and provide no real value? Then stop searching and go with Sarah Cox!

As ex-pats coming from the UEA, it was great to have an agent who could orient us to all the areas in the region and show us properties in both Playa del Carmen and Tulum. Sarah worked with us through the whole process from viewings to the purchase and all the paperwork that followed.

Sarah is extremely knowledgeable about the Riviera Maya being one of the few agents who have actually lived in the region for over fifteen years. Sarah was always friendly, helpful, and accessible. I couldn’t recommend her more highly.
