Tropicasa Realty was formed in 1997 by Wayne Franklin, a former broker from California with over 25 years of real estate experience in the U.S. and Mexico. With over 100 years of combined experience, many of the agents at Tropicasa have either held real estate licenses in other countries or have had their own brokerages, providing clients with the benefit of their extensive knowledge and experience. In addition, all members of the company are affiliated with AMPI, the Mexican Board of Realtors, of which “Franklin”, as he is known in the community, was President from 2002-2007, and has been the Chairman of the Honor and Justice Committee since 2008. Tropicasa is also an international member of the renowned U.S. National Association of Realtors (NAR) and the International Consortium of Real Estate Associations (ICREA).
Developers immediately noticed Tropicasa’s growth and success. Representing some of the most significant and impressive developments in the region, Tropicasa has been involved in the marketing of new condominium and villa projects throughout the Puerto Vallarta area containing more than 400 units. The company is proud of its ability to work successfully with all customers whether they are seeking an entry-level condo to a luxurious beachfront villa.
The agents at Tropicasa Realty work closely with licensed attorneys and contractors, corporate and private lenders as well as title companies such as Fidelity National Title in Mexico and Stewart Title in the U.S. for the full assistance and protection of our clientele. Tropicasa was instrumental in bringing certain of these institutions into the Puerto Vallarta market. A strong proponent of financing in the Mexican market, Tropicasa conducted the first residential loans in the market with both GE Money and Compass Bank. While the market of lenders and title companies continues to change, Tropicasa continues to work with the active members to offer additional services and security to our clients.
The Tropicasa family of agents continue to offer the very best services available in the marketplace to their clientele.
