Jean’s transition from the Hospitality and Resort Management field to Real Estate was natural and easy, since his training and orientation has always focused on excellent customer service, integrity, consistency and reliability.

“Hiring Jean-R. Talbot to sell our home was the best decision we ever made! He was fantastic throughout the entire process. His knowledge of the area combined with his marketing ideas got us a price higher than we ever could have expected in a timeframe we thought to be impossible in this market.
He was a true pleasure to work with and his expertise kept us at ease.”

Jean-R’s understanding and knowledge of the local market along with his relationships in the community is invaluable. His professionalism, good humor, and patience was an added bonus. He emanates a sense of trust-worthiness that makes you feel very secure during what is, without a doubt, a very involved process.
We highly recommend Jean-R!”

“Buying real estate in today’s market, especially in a foreign country, has its challenges and pitfalls. It is important that a potential buyer, before even looking at any properties, first and foremost chooses a real estate agent who not only has a wealth of knowledge and understanding of the market but who also has the highest standards of integrity and professionalism.
We purchased our home in Puerto Vallarta three years ago. We feel very fortunate that it has proven to be the right choice not only as an investment but also as a lifestyle. We feel equally fortunate that throughout the process we had the assistance and guidance of Jean-R. Talbot: a name synonymous with integrity and professionalism and one of Vallarta’s most reputable and highly regarded real estate agents par excellence.”
Jayne and Chris Holden – Mount Pleasant, South Carolina
“We have had the good fortune and pleasure of working with Jean-R. Talbot on two condominium purchases in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico over the past three years. As we are primarily residents of Canada and therefore are not always physically in Mexico for months at a time, it is very important to have someone whom we trust working on our behalf. Jean is that person. We never have concerns when he is handling our business transactions. His knowledge of the local market is second to none and his ability to get what we need done and done right the first time is invaluable. His fluency in English, French and Spanish literally means that nothing is “lost in translation,” therefore his communication is clear and his responsiveness is always prompt. The fact that he is genuinely a nice guy and easy to talk to on any subject is an added bonus that quite frankly makes choosing Jean to handle our real estate business a no-brainer. We would have the utmost confidence in recommending Jean-R. Talbot with the knowledge that he will continue to provide the same good experiences that we have been fortunate to have had working with him in the past. “

« Nous avions trouvé notre condo de rêve au Mexique. Le premier agent de vente que nous avons rencontré était mexicain. Une personne très agréable mais qui ne parlais pas le français. Bientôt, nous avons découvert qu’un agent (Jean-R. Talbot) parlant français était disponible également : un québécois qui a tombé en amour avec le Mexique et qui y consacre sa vie depuis plusieurs années. Il nous a expliqué toutes les options disponibles pour terminer la construction de notre condo selon nos besoins et nos goûts. Toutes les étapes de la transaction d’achat de la propriété nous ont été expliquées avec clarté. Mais plus que juste être un bon et honnête agent de vente, il s’est occupé en notre absence du pays pour régler un problème à la livraison de nos meubles et nous a fourni nombreux conseils sur les façons de faire au Mexique. Il est très sympathique et dévoué. C’est pourquoi, nous le considérons comme notre ami. Nous le remercions beaucoup pour nous avoir aidés à réaliser notre rêve mexicain. »

His deep knowledge of the product and clear understanding of customer needs enabled him to forge solid relationships that were converted to sales and satisfied homeowners.”
