Welcome to San Miguel de Allende

Enjoy amazing views of the Parrish church called “the Parroquia” and visit the one of the thermo hot water spas such as the Mayan Baths of San Miguel, a private subterranean hot springs bath. Culinary highlights include a visit to The Restaurant, La Parada, Chamonix and Firenze Italian restaurant.

  • “When I decided to sell the El Centro home that I inherited from my mother and that had been in my family for 25 years, a trusted friend in San Miguel referred me to Cynthia Petro. There is no doubt that her expertise and guidance is why my house sold immediately. To accommodate my busy work schedule, the process had to occur long distance. Cynthia handled all the details that made the sale go smoothly for both an absentee seller and buyer. She did a great job staging the house and networking with her colleagues. She handled negotiations efficiently and tactfully. Her level of professionalism, dedication, knowledge, and patience was unparalleled. Cynthia’s sensitivity and kindness helped to ameliorate the experience of letting go of a home that had played a major part in my life. She also continued to spend time with me in my search for property outside San Miguel. I feel very fortunate that I had the opportunity to meet and work with Cynthia and I plan to continue our relationship. She genuinely enjoys what she does and she's works hard at it, with proven results. I highly recommend that any home buyer or seller, contact Cynthia Petro first!”

  • "I can’t speak highly enough of the magnificent service provided by Mayte Calderon de la Barca of the Agave Sotheby’s team here in San Miguel de Allende. In addition to just making every transaction so simple for me, I was also super impressed with her commitment to getting a great deal on my behalf. I was very happy with the valuation my property received, and even happier to have actually got an offer very close to asking price within only about two weeks. From the very first discussion about selling my house right through to closing, Mayte was attentive to all our needs and kept us well informed the whole time. With service and attention to details like this it makes me wish I had another home to sell."

  • “ We worked with Rebecca on buying our very first house in San Miguel. We knew little to nothing about San Miguel and she was so helpful on briefing us on the process to buy in Mexico and also on other facets of living in SMA. She was always available including weekends and went out of her way to make our transaction smooth and easy. In addition, she has welcomed us into a community we did not know, and introduced us to many service providers, etc. The entire transaction was seamless due to Rebecca’s knowledge and courtesy. I would highly recommend her to someone buying in San Miguel."

  • I have been mulling things over the last couple of days and we have your family and the magic we all put out there to thank for our good fortune! From conception of our ideas to delivery, you and Ezra were our strength and stalwart guides during this entire process. Our two transactions were not huge compared to many of your higher priced listings, however, we were treated as if we bought and sold in the millions. Real estate is a tough business, we know. Your accessibility made us feel like we were your only clients. You were always available, reliable, efficient and sensible during our emotions of buying and selling in Mexico. True professionals with hearts of gold!

    We love you, Clark Group, now and forever!"

  • "We highly recommend Holly Houston Ortiz for both buying and selling property in the San Miguel de Allende area.

    We listed our home with Holly and she found a qualified buyer within 3 weeks, at 97% of our asking price!

    She guided us through the negotiating and closing processes; answering our questions, and investigating options for us. She also found and helped rectify issues with our original deed, enabling us to maximize our exemptions and minimize the capital gains taxes. Holly and her team were very thorough and professional throughout the process.

    Holly is very good at reading her clients and understanding their needs. She found a unique property that was a perfect match for us for both amenities and price.

    For the icing on the cake, she was able to arrange a simultaneous close for the sale and purchase of these properties!

    We can’t say enough good things about Holly and her team at Agave-Sotheby’s!"
