About Matthew David

Coming from Southern California, as early as when I was 11 years old, I always looked forward to participate in the Hidden Hills, California “Fiesta” and loved the various themes based on Mexico in so much as I learned many equestrian skills at singer Vicki Carr’s home in order to ride my 16.5 hand high horse “Doc Holiday” wearing my Charro outfit.

Approximately 30 years later, who would of thought those childhood heartfelt experiences could evolve into signing my Nationality papers to become Mexican in the state of Guanajuato. My 25 year marriage to my Puebla, Mexico wife and partner in many property investment ventures may have swayed me in that direction.

It was around the fall of 2002 while we both were successfully working on the coast of California, like many, we still felt the somber aftermath in the USA evident from what is known as “September 11”. That October day, I mentioned a need for a change. What came to mind was not the familiar Cabo San Lucas in Baja California instead, that little town with Expats and retirees a few hours from Pátzcuaro called San Miguel de Allende visited previously for only a few days, prior to El Dia de los Muertos festivities. “How would you feel about renting a place and checking it out?” I asked my wife—The rest is history.

During my pursuit of successfully gaining Dual Citizenship in the USA and Mexico I have obtained:

-A valid license with the State of California Bureau of Real Estate since October 2003

-Graduated with Bachelor of Arts University of California Santa Barbara December 1992 in the studies of Criminal Justice.

-Travels and Business ventures throughout Mexico for past 25 years, including Cabo San Lucas, Cancun, San Miguel de Allende, Puebla, Querétaro and of course Ajijic.

Various projects including: Property rehab & renovation, construction, land development, rental property and REO investment in California, Washington State and various strategically analyzed zones in Mexico including all of the previously mentioned areas with multiple investment ventures locally accomplished in Ajijic.

We are currently residing in Ajijic and absolutely love it. I want to share my adventures in lakeside to others wishing to experience the local culture here.

My goal is to pass along some of my experiences, provide outstanding customer service, help people make smart investment decisions, and most importantly find like minded people with an appreciation and fascination with Mexico, Mexican people and the multitude of the culture, folklore and beauty in this land to share my life with.

My door is open and I welcome people intrigued with this rapidly growing adopted home of mine to share in this life adventure.
