Leah

Hi my name is Leah and I'm originally from Vancouver. B.C.  I moved to Playa del Carmen in 2007 with my partner and our 3 dogs, 2 Boxers and a Labrador. In 2008 I started my career in real estate and then 2014 my career as a full-time mom for a few years. We welcomed our Son whom is the joy of our lives and by default, acquired Canadian, Mexican and British citizenship. Our family spends most of our spare time with friends and their kids close to pools, water or any of the other many attractions this area offers. And just recently we ended up rescuing a stray dog, so the family keeps growing.

Throughout my years of real estate I have used a commitment to hard work, listening and follow through with my client's needs to achieve the best outcome in every transaction and I strive to ensure that the process is fun, easy and stress-free. My clients can count on me any time of day when they have a question or concern. Whether it is a condo, house, land, hotel listing or hotel sale.  One of my many attributes to the company is my intimate knowledge of this region and leading our real estate community to expand revenues with Multi-Million Dollar Investments in Hospitality Sales. With my passion for real estate investment skills I assure a warm and friendly approach.

Tony

Hi there my name is Tony Rabachuk. I was born and raised in Thunder Bay, Ontario and then later moved to beautiful British Columbia, Canada.

I worked in home renovations, contracting and maintenance in Canada for several years. Frequent visits to Mexico made me realize this is the place I would love to live. Living here now full-time for and proudly a Real Estate Advisor with the Playa Real Estate Group. Since prior education taught me an abundance about home construction, decor and value I found it easy to switch careers and sell properties instead of building them. So here I am living my dream in the beautiful Caribbean, selling the same dream to my clients that are looking for a relaxing alternative lifestyle.

I moved to the Riviera Maya in 2015 and have loved every day since. My wife and I both grew up in Winnipeg, MB, Canada. We spent 13 years in Edmonton, AB and started our family there, before finally taking the big step of selling our home and moving to Mexico with our young kids. We first vacationed, before kids, in Playa del Carmen in 2006 and really fell in love with the area. So much so, that we just kept coming back and getting more and more comfortable here.

After each trip to Playa del Carmen, we would return home and still have to endure another month or 2 of snow and cold. We had enough. Since moving here, we are living better, with less stress, so much more time outdoors and really enjoying every day. I wear shorts and flip flops. Everyday. The biggest reasons for the move was the weather, the cost of living and the lifestyle. The pace of life here is just so much better.

We live in the beautiful, gated community of Puerto Aventuras, and as a place for raising a family, I wouldn’t trade it for anything. The kids ride their bikes to their friends’ place, to tennis, to the school or to the market if we need to send them off for something. I wouldn’t feel very comfortable doing that at home with a 10 and 12-year-old. Sometimes they miss playing ice hockey, but they’ve made some great friends here who love to play ball hockey, so they still get their fix! And then there are the dogs ’they’ rescued since we’ve been here… a 3-legged tiny Chihuahua and another Chihuahua mix.

As far as the Riviera Maya as our destination, it’s just so beautiful 12 months of the year and super accessible through the Cancun International airport. There is something like 60 airlines now flying into Cancun from all over the world. I’ve become a certified scuba diver, taken up paddle boarding, snorkeling ALL the time, the tacos are great (especially with habanero salsa) and the beer is cold! We seem to take a mini vacation every couple of months having already visited Bacalar, Puerto Morelos, Akumal, Chetumal, Laguna Milagros, Tulum, Isla Mujeres, Cozumel, Holbox, Cancun (for the Costco run) and even Belize. And with amazing natural cenotes and local parks we’ve been to, like Xcaret, Xel-Ha, Xenses, Xoximilco and the dozens of others we still haven’t been to, it’s impossible to get bored here.

There are not many things we miss from home, except of course for friends and family. But nobody seems to mind coming to visit us. And for the ’things’ we can’t seem to find locally, there’s always Amazon to the rescue.

So, what are you waiting for? Send me a WhatsApp (+52-1-984-142-9494) and introduce yourself, or email me if you prefer [email protected]

I know it’s sometimes hard to find time to get down here, but if you can find 4 days to get away, I can help you book a discovery visit for 2 people, to stay at an all-inclusive resort here in Playa del Carmen for only $600. In my 4+ years here, the only people who can’t get away for 3 nights to come to check out real estate here with me, are those who don’t really want to :)
