At the outset we want to thank you for a successful and efficient sales transaction with our property at Sunset Beach in Sisal. The total timeline from presentation of the offer to the closing was just over 30 days. Your invaluable assistance and consultation throughout added a great deal to our peace of mind and the final successful outcome. You and your team of lawyers kept us and our accountant apprised at each step and provided sound advice on alternatives on any situation that arose, and, these were very few. Our thanks to you and your team. It was truly a pleasurable and rewarding experience.
Yury did an exceptional job on the selling of our beach house in Sunset Shores, Yucatan Mexico. She went way overboard on clarifying a couple of technical issues that weighed pretty heavy on the sale of our home. Yury was a true professional and made sure that all details where addressed. She has a first hand knowledge of the area and the special processes necessary for purchasing and selling beachfront as well as city property in Merida. Yury understands the Mexican market.She also goes above and beyond what most real estate agents will do. She picked us up at the airport at midnight when our plane was delayed. We stayed overnight in her casita and she even took care of our dog Chloe for six weeks when we had to travel back to the States for a family emergency.
We went from talking about buying a house in Merida over dinner one night, to making an offer two weeks later on a short house-hunting trip. After checking multiple web-sites for what was available we contacted Yury by e-mail. She responded promptly and over the course of a week, we worked out a list of houses to see. Despite the fact that we hadn’t decided whether we wanted a fixer-upper or a turn-key colonial (or something in-between), Yury succeeded in finding us our perfect home in Merida (which of course was unlike any of the houses we had put on our list). Yury is a pleasure to work with; she is punctual, professional, and candid. Although we ended up purchasing a renovated home, Yury has a great eye for seeing the potential in a fixer-upper when you are overwhelmed by the amount of work that needs to be done. It’s just part of her contagious enthusiasm for life in Merida and showing her clients the amazing variety of both classic and modern homes available. She made our purchasing a house in Mexico a terrific experience.
Working with Yury has been a delight. My husband and I recently purchased a home with Yury as our realtor. She listened to our needs and never tried to show us something outside of those parameters. This was particularly important as we needed a home and neighborhood that was accessible for a wheelchair.
Yury was thoughtful and patient, making all the arrangements with the attorney for the closing. I can’t imagine the experience being any easier!
Yury has continued to help as we get settled in our new home. We are so thankful for the care she pours into her clients and couldn’t recommend her more highly!
Yury was spectacular in selling our property. She knows the area and how to highlight its features. She gives every bit of professionalism and stays in contact with you every step of the way. You never feel like just a listing on a website. She a wonderful agent and we highly recommend her for your selling and purchasing needs. She was able to take care of everything for us, so we didn’t have to make the trip to close on the property. She honest and such a pleasure to work with. Some agents we found will tell you what you want to hear to get your business. Yuri was honest, whether you wanted to hear it or not, and that kind of honesty is rare in the industry. We so appreciated it and everything she did for us. You can’t go wrong with her at your side.
My partner and I recently concluded a week of intense house hunting with Yury in Merida and she did such an incredible job and took such great care of us that I simply had to write this testimonial. Coming from NY, flying in blind, I was of course nervous and didn’t know what sort of attention we would receive. Yury was responsive, timely, honest and upfront, bringing a lot of experience to the table and showing us everything there was to see (which was a ton). Never pushed her own listings over others and just a very thoughtful, intelligent person. I would encourage anyone to work with her, even at a distance, as she is one of the best realtors I’ve ever dealt with and I’ve dealt with a lot. Thank you Yury!
Muchissimas gracias Yury por ayudarme a la venta de mi terreno. Eres una persona encantadora y una agente de real estate sumamente profesional, hiciste que desde tan lejos me sintiese siempre segura con tu representacion y asistiendome en todas mis dudas. Si tuviese que elegir nuevamente te elegiria a tu mil veces mas ! Hasta pronto, :)))!
We had a fantastic experience when we bought our house in Chuburna. Yury took care of everything and it was a smooth and pleasant experience. We love coming down to Yucatan and wish we could spend more time there. We have a wonderful place, and we have Yury to thank for it.
Over the years we have bought and sold several properties in the US and around the world. Thus we have met many agents good and bad. Yury is definitely one of the very best. Finding the right agent is key if you are looking for a house especially in a foreign country. She is amazingly organized and managed to show us all the properties we wanted to see in our short timeframe. Combined with her knowledge of the location, local culture and language skills, we felt very well taken care of.
We met Yury on our first trip to Mexico in April 2014. We wanted to look at beach properties to consider for retirement. Yury went above and beyond what most realtors would do. She listened carefully to what we were looking for, drove us all over the place because we wanted to see what different towns looked like, and seemed very happy to do it. She took a lot of the fear out of the process of buying real estate in a foreign country out for us. Since this was our first trip, we thought we would just find what area we would want to live in. However, Yury took us to several awesome beach homes, and now we can’t wait to come back and buy one before retirement. We came home, put our home up for sale, and hopefully, thanks to Yury, next stop for us will be beautiful Mexico. We can’t wait! If you are going to look at real estate, you will do yourself a great favor by calling Yury, and letting an honest, caring person help find your dream home.
I am sending this letter to convey our strong recommendation for you as a real estate professional assisting sellers and buyers in the Yucatan.
After the initial contact with you, we had several telephone calls and emails regarding what types of property we were looking to purchase. My wife and I did many of our own searches on the Internet of the properties available and forwarded on to you those that we felt might best meet our needs.
We ultimately determined that the village of Chelem orChuburna was the location for our retirement and full time residence.
We then spent 10 days at a rental in Chicxulub and you showed us all of the available properties within our price range that were on and off the beach. One particular property struck our fancy and we asked to make an offer immediately. The offer was accepted and we closed a few months later to coincide with my retirement. We then flew down with our dog and cat in mid January to make Chelem our home.
Your guidance and counsel was always very professional yet friendly. We found your knowledge of the market quite valuable.
We are happy here in our new home Serenity Sands and want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all of your assistance in making it happen.
We highly recommend you to represent potential buyers and sellers in the Yucatan. We will certainly use you again, should the need arise
Having decided that I would like to buy some beachfront land and property in the Yucatan a few years ago, I started looking for an agent with a good reputation to help me in my search and final purchase. I am very thankful that my enquiries led to Yury and her husband Guy. Right from the start their service was of the highest quality.On my visits to Mexico from Europe, Yury collected me and my family from the airport. It was nice to see her smiling face after a long journey and nothing was too much trouble for her. She advised on hotels, where to find the good markets and shopping, taxis, wonderful restaurants and tourist attractions. She drove us round the town and beach to show us any property we were interested in. She was knowledgeable about the history of the area and the individual properties. When the decision to buy was made, she took us to the right lawyers and other professionals for contract signing and other legal work. Most of the professionals spoke good English but Yury speaks fluent Spanish, so language was never a problem.One area in which Yury was truly impressive was in property management. I had renovated a house in the centro area of Merida to a very high standard. Yury organised staff to do the cleaning, pool cleaning, painting, indeed everything involved with property management. She found good staff to carry out the work at a reasonable price. She worked on weekends and in the evening to get the work finished to a deadline. She sent me photographs as the work progressed. All this would have been impossible for me to arrange from my home in Switzerland without her guidance. I am not surprised that Yury has such a good reputation in the Yucatan. Everyone who knows her speaks highly of her.The Yucatan is one of the most beautiful areas in the world and we were lucky to have someone like Yury to show us round and to advise us with our land and property purchases. Not only is she a lovely person who is great fun to be with but she is also a complete professional. She saved us money where she could, she kept within our budget and negotiated with sellers to obtain the best deal for us in every transaction. If someone is looking for an excellent agent in the Yucatan, I can wholeheartedly recommend Yury di Pasquale.Yury, I am happy to write you a reference for all the work you have done for me and my family during the process of buying beach front land and property in Mexico. You have been a truly wonderful estate agent and property manager. Anyone who finds you to help them in their property or land search will be very fortunate. We would literally not have been able to manage without you. You also made the process such good fun.
We met Yury Di Pasquale in February 2013. She listened carefully to our needs and found us the perfect house. Alonso Hernandez was the attorney and the transaction was easier then buying a house in the U.S. Yury is very knowledgable, professional, and positive. Yes, Yury started out as a person helping us to buy our first home in the Yucatan, but ended up as a friend. A delightful individual.
Yury is a great agent. We had our house listed for 2 years, but she was the only agent who brought serious buyers. She is a pro. She went the extra yard for us. She is a very good honest person. We were very happy doing business with her.
Dear Yury, I can’t thank you enough for your attention to detail and your warm and caring unselfishness. From the beginning of the sale till the last you were on top of it. It was an easy and stress less experience. Thank you again, Faye Jorgensen
As for making your dreams come true… here’s our testimonial: We were fortunate enough to meet Yury during a quick trip to Merida from our (then) home in Toronto. We were introduced to her by a friend and she quickly was able to organize many properties for us to view with very short notice.
She took her time to review the details of each property, the neighbourhood as it related to our needs as well as providing personal insight into life in the Yucatan. Once we returned to Canada Yury was prompt to reply to our many questions and emails, she helped us to realize our dream of living in Merida and making this our home. For every step of the process she was able assist us with ease, make recommendations and providing us with the inside scoop. She is extremely personable and it was obvious that she cares about her clients. We couldn’t be happier with the service and care Yury provided.
Buying a house is stressful, buying one in a foreign country is twice as stressful. Choosing the house is really the easiest part and closing the deal is absolutely intimidating… so many considerations and pitfalls to watch out for, so many details to deal with and so very many things that can and do go wrong. This is when having a good estate agent makes a HUGE difference… and Yury Di Pasquale not only made that difference for us, she went far beyond what is expected. She made the entire process fast, simple, easy, as cost efficient as possible, safe and most importantly stress free! Just listing how many things she took care of for us would fill an entire page. She is not only super efficient and resourceful (we saw all the houses we sent her links of plus some she suggested), she is also a very personable and lovely person. And everyone we spoke to in Merida knew of her and always assured us we were in excellent hands, her reputation in town is excellent and with good reason. Once the sale on our lovely colonial house was closed, she continued to help us with getting started in town. Fetching us at the airport, introducing us to people, helping us with contacts and even taking us shopping for plants and household items, she really goes the extra mile! We highly recommend her to anyone who wants a successful, hassle free, relaxed and enjoyable buying experience.
