My work as a real estate agent began coincidentally but it has become one of the
most important things in my life. I like to do it; I like to be involved in one
of the most important decisions someone can make: to buy a real property.
I started my career in real estate by working for a large development company of
tourist destinations in Mexico and Central America called Situr. This experience
permitted me to be involved in the world of real estate sales, mostly to
foreigners. I know the sales and legal process in Mexico very well. Although my
native language is Spanish, I perform well in English and I always to do my best
to have satisfied clients. I am a current member of A.M.P.I. the Association of
Mexican Real Estate Professionals and am a licensed Real Estate Agent in Sonora,
I was born in Guadalajara, Mexico. I am an adopted Sonoran for the last 30
years, a lover of this land and its people. My children and my husband are
Sonorans by birth. I am a good friend, I like to do what I am and to be what I
do. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org

I am Canadian and have lived in Québec, Manitoba, Alberta and now in Ontario.
Seven years ago my daughter and son-in-law discovered San Carlos, fell in love
with the area, and moved here from Alberta. My younger daughter, her then
boyfriend (now husband) and I were invited to share Christmas here in San Carlos
with them. I fell in love with San Carlos too and have been returning for longer
and longer visits every year since.
My background has been in sales for most of my career. I was a Sale Manager for
Avon Products in Edmonton, Alberta and won many sales awards before being
transferred into the Canadian Head Office of Avon Products in Montreal, Quebec
and assigned a position as a Category Manager for various product lines carried
by they Company. After a transfer to their Head Office in New Year City which I
declined, I opened my own business, a flower shop. We grew to three locations in
the West Island of Montreal before deciding to move out of Quebec to Ontario.
Settling in a small town was a new adventure, buying a farm, having horses,
steers, pigs, chickens, goats as well as the usual dogs and cats. A great
setting to bring up my two daughters!!
I sold the business and retired only to find I was bored. So I launched a new
career becoming a Real Estate Agent licensed for the Province of Ontario. Now
that I spend so much time here in San Carlos, I have joined Re/Max First Choice
Realty as a Real Estate Agent. I am now licensed here in the Province of Sonora,
Mexico and enjoy meeting Canadians and Americans who also fall in love with this
little piece of Paradise called San Carlos and want a little piece to call their

Bryan Replogle has been visiting the San Carlos area for 29 years. After years
of the short vacation, and having had enough of battling the youth of south
Tucson in education, Bryan made the permanent move to San Carlos. There he met
his wife Lisa, owner of Ruby Wine Bar. Bryan
loves enjoying all that the San Carlos area has to offer, as well as sharing his
passions with others.
You can often find Bryan walking his golden retriever Shaka, on the water
fishing, helping people navigate the estuary and chase dolphins on kayaks,
sailing his Hobie 18’, windsurfing, making sushi at the wine bar, or showing and
selling real estate. He plans on being in the San Carlos area for a long time
and hopes that you do too!

As a frequent visitor to San Carlos over the past 20 years, my wife and I made
the permanent move to this beautiful little place by the sea in 2005. With 40
years experience in real estate sales and management with major builders and
developers in the US, the pace in San Carlos is a very refreshing change.
It is a pleasure to be associated with Remax First Choice Realty and the quality
projects and properties they represent. I am currently licensed in Sonora and
Maria Luisa Ibarra Lemus
Maria Luisa Ibarra Lemus, known as “Luisa” by all, is the office manager of
Remax First Choice and sister company First Choice Property Management. She is
the smiling face that greets you in the front office and the nail that holds
everything together. As a lifelong resident of Guaymas, she is fluent in both
Spanish and English and our American and Canadian customers have greatly
appreciated her helpfulness in communicating with the locals in a foreign
country. She has a degree in Tourism from CBTIS 40 and has many contacts and
close relationships with the businesses in the State of Sonora. If a problem
needs to be solved, Luisa knows where to start.
Luisa and her husband Felipe are raising their eight year old daughter, Itzia
Jazmin, to value education and a strong work ethic. They provide a solid example
in their own lives and have set family goals that will assure their daughter's
acceptance into a respected university in the future. They recently bought a
home and take pride in entertaining friends and family during their free time.
Family is an important part of the Mexican culture, and Luisa spends as much
time as possible with hers.
In the past, Luisa worked as the manager at Marina Cantina, a popular restaurant
in San Carlos. She enjoys the many friendships she has made in her career and
especially appreciates the close bonds she has established with her employers,
co-workers, and customers. She is always happy to help with any task and takes
great pride in a job well done. With her sense of humor and jovial personality,
it is not uncommon for returning residents to pop in the office just to say hi
to her and get a hug from their favorite San Carlos friend.
