We met Salvador in 2006 when we decided to purchase a condominium in Puerto Vallarta. At the time, he was apprenticing as an agent. We became friends during the then extended escrow process as mortgages for foreigners was a recent concept. The unit we had decided to purchase was a fixer-upper. Salvador’s longevity in Puerto Vallarta made him an invaluable resource during escrow and our renovation of the distressed property. Shortly after the closing of our first property, we purchased a second condominium for which Salvador served as our agent. His knowledge of the building and available vendors was again invaluable.
When the time came to look for the single-family home in which we intend to eventually retire, we met with Salvador and gave him our wish list of “wants”. While we were not in a hurry, we spent almost four years viewing numerous properties that met our specs, but were not quite right. In 2015, Salvador phoned quite excited to say he thinks he found the property we were seeking. He was correct. We fell in love with the property and proceeded with the purchase, this time requiring additional support from Salvador as we were purchasing via seller carried financing.
Throughout our dealings with Salvador, he has been knowledgeable and ethical. While we may be done purchasing properties, we are blessed to enjoy a long-time friendship with he and his family and recommend his services to any potential buyer.
We asked a friend of ours in Florida if he knew any realtors in Puerto Vallarta and he recommended Salvador who sold them a condo over 10 years ago. I decided to send him an email to see if he was still working as a realtor and he was. I was a bit nervous that we were Americans with a dream in a country where we do not speak Spanish and we do not know any of the real estate laws.
We can´t thank Salvador enough for all his help! We knew very little about where to look for our retirement home but Salvador Guided us trough every step. He made sure we took our time to figure out what we wanted and not rush us into something we were not 100% sure. He always provided his honest opinions about every house we looked at even if he meant losing the sale!
Salvador immediately stepped in to help us with our relocation. He was extremely patient in showing us 30 houses during our 2 trips to Puerto Vallarta, and he took the time to listen to ur needs and find us exactly the house we wanted. He gave us a great comparative market analysis for each market we were looking into. He provided us excellent advice on the area, home values and we had every faith in his ability to fin us the right house. And he did! The house we bought was more than we could have hoped for an we loved it from the minute we saw Casa Carolina. He is well connected in Puerto Vallarta which was very helpful in regards to binding house insurance, closing cost, mortgage financing, contractors and obtaining a trust. Salvador made the whole process easy and we would highly recommend him to anyone.
You have made this experience so pleasant and positive. Helping us resign form our corporate jobs, moving to another country and leaving the city you have lived in for many years is very stressful. Yo helped us navigate a major life change and a period on anxiety and pressure. We are very happy to have had you as our realtor an will certainly recommend you strongly to anyone who asks.
He´s a terrific realtor to work with and we count him as a friend.

I have dealt with Salvador Zuniga both as a Real Estate rental agent and now we recently purchased our condo through Salvador.
Salvador is the absolute perfect Boker – Real Estate Agent! He is very knowledgeable about Puerto Vallarta and all the surrounding area, extremely patient both in showing properties and answering any questions, always pleasant and easy to work with, going above and beyond and unquestionably honest in providing information. He always seemed to know just the right fit in what we were looking for.
We can not recommend him enough…
In a very difficult market, it took a lot of patience and persistence on your part, we very much appreciate all that you have done for us. You were always there and followed up on every detail and any queries we had during the process you were always helpful, professional and handled the situation with a smile.
