A curious and wandering soul from an early age, Wayne’s first big trip to this part of magical Mexico began in Vancouver very soon after high-school ended, and he stuck his thumb out and headed south on a magical trip along to Pacific Coast to Central America. It was during that trip as a young man (boy!), that he was waylaid for much longer than intended in this magical Bay of Banderas region. He drank the tropical paradise elixir and the memories never really went away.His wandering soul dictated much of his early life/work adventures and continued into fully fledged adulthood. Careers abroad and at home in advertising, magazine publishing, business/personal coaching and photography helped guide his lifelong travel addiction until he settled — for awhile at least — in Vancouver. It was a fortuitous decision that led to the meeting of soul-mate, lover of life and business partner, Penny Isabel.Much happened in between that first day they met and the decision to holiday in Sayulita and Vallarta for ten days in 2008; the vacation changed the course of their lives. They bought a small condo in Nuevo Vallarta in 2009, mostly as a revenue property but, they were smitten and the idea of moving full-time never left them. They continued their respective careers in Vancouver until 2014, when the itch would not stop and they had to make the move.Wayne’s life and career choices always revolved around asking the right questions to generate the right solutions for clients of all stripes. His education, curiosity and genuine passion for helping people, influenced the decision they made that fateful day when they were debating a move south. The debate didn’t last long, and they moved in 2014, permanently.Joining with Penny’s already refined real estate education, experience and knowledge from working in the business in Vancouver, helped his evolution. He secured his A.M.P.I board certification shortly after his arrival here and began to work with people just like him… who were smitten first, and then finally bitten by the Riviera Nayarit love-bug.Five years in the Vallarta/Nayarit real estate business later and Wayne feels he’s just starting! The biggest and most satisfying aspect for him, is the satisfaction of sharing in the experience of living in the magical piece of a magical country, while guiding people to the shortest and simplest path to making the move that will change lives for the better.Change is good. Wayne’s life experience and practical perspective have been invaluable during his time helping people from all walks of life who are in a process of change, and making a move to Mexico is a big move by anyone’s standards, and for many reasons. Wayne’s life work is made up, in part, of helping people unravel big moves, physical or otherwise. The friends he’s made during and after these life changing decisions have been his biggest reward. He looks forward to offering you the help you need to make the change that may well be the perfect for you and your family, right now or sometime in the future.
