I can't imagine how long it would have taken to compile the information that was provided during this seminar and then make the appointments with the best professionals in the area --- maybe months!!  Beyond helpful -- Invaluable!  Not only did we get all our questions answered but we established relationships to help us move and live here full time.

I got to know Ricardo through where he answered many of my questions about Lakeside living and real estate. Classy, professional, knowledgeable, and FUN!  Ricardo & Michaela went the extra mile and exceeded all of our expectations, and we highly, highly recommend!

If I had to do this on my own it would have taken months of research and I would never have been sure that what I culled together from everyone else's was correct. So...this was invaluable.  I think the most important professionals, the ones I appreciated the most, was the immigration lawyer and the doctor because I would not have access to that on my own, it would have been second and third hand information about other people's experiences, and they were able to speak to "my" needs and what I'm looking at in trying to get here.... and I could just not have done that on my own.

You and Michaela's hospitality, the seminar, and finding our new home were incredible, as were the friends, the wonderful restaurants, and the excursions around Lakeside. Wow! We expecially enjoyed meeting the two of you. It was a great experience and we're looking forward to our next trip.

Michaela and Ricardo have made my transition to Ajijic so warm and inviting, and I hope our friendship will last forever.  You guys are the best! 

I am so happy to have found this little village and the kindest of people.

Ricardo has been invaluable in leading us through the vagaries of preparing for the expat life in Lake Chapala. Ricardo set up meetings that covered such vital issues as rental opportunities, health care and insurance, automobile ownership, immigration and visa issues, moving household goods from the U.S., banking and transferring funds from the U.S. to Mexico, the benefits of the Lake Chapala Society. We still have a lot of “homework” when we return to the U.S., but we have a clear path forward and a place to land when we return. Take, his seminar! You can’t do this on your own.

I recently attended the July seminar and that was the best money I've ever spent!  Richardo and Michaela are an amazing team and with this seminar, they have dotted every "i" and crossed every "t" in terms of content AND great speakers.  They have thought of everything and what comes across from both of them is such a genuine, altruistic mission to ensure that their attendees know everything they need to know before making the decision to move to the area.

I am so happy I attended the seminar and enthusiastically encourage you to do so as well.  My comfort level with this move and navigating the particulars is 100% confidence as a result!

I took the online seminar with focus about 2 years ago before covid and found it very helpful information and I just took the in ajijic seminar with Ricardo and Michaela in Ajijic location this week.   We learned a lot of  information from guest speakers and then Ricardo and Michaela takes you to see these places around town and you get a better feel of the area to relocate.  Ricardo and Michaela I would highly recommend for this introduction to Ajijic and surrounding area.  The guest speakers are local and authentic represents doctors, insurance, health, travel, real estate, restaurants, grocery stores, IT computer Tv service , living care management for elders,  transportation buying or renting or independent drivers.    Etc.., etc..,  👍😃

My wife and I attended the July seminar. We met so many people it was hard to keep up. I have to say, if you plan on moving to Mexico and don’t take this seminar, you will be making a big mistake. Ricardo lined up speakers in every area of interest. Covering legal issues, health issues, and every day living. We met people who have already made the jump and got phone numbers and emails from many of them. Think of it this way, for every dollar you spend on this seminar, you will probably save a hundred. Not only that, you will make some good friends along the way.

I would enthusiastically recommend your seminar to everyone who is thinking about relocating to Lakeside/Lake Chapala.  Being presented and knowing the basics of living in Mexico greatly improved my settling choices. 

As a host, you were superb and never failed to answer my/our questions completely.

My only recommendation would be to spend some additional time on rental possibilities in the outlying areas for those of us who are not totally ready to purchase property in Lakeside.

Thank you for your greatly appreciated efforts.
