Meet Kim Tempel


After falling in love with Puerto Morelos almost 20 years ago, Kim finally wrapped up her legal career in Colorado and made her move south in 2012. Once she settled in, Kim turned the same determination to help others that led her into a successful legal career, into what has become a very successful real estate career.

“There’s no place on earth quite like Puerto Morelos, Mexico, and owning a property here is one of the great rewards of life. I love this area and I love introducing clients to our charming community. Purchasing property in a foreign country can seem overwhelming – it’s my job to simplify the process for clients, watch out for their interests and make sure their real estate transaction is a complete success and enjoyable experience.”

Kim is the top performer in her market and has been for each of the past 4 years, earning her place as the authority on the Puerto Morelos real estate market, and the respect of clients and colleagues in the process. Kim is an active member of the local real estate community and participates in both the national real estate association in Mexico – AMPI – and the National Association of Realtors – NAR – in the USA. While Kim’s legal background is certainly a plus when negotiating a deal and navigating the real estate closing process, it’s her passion for finding the perfect property for her clients, and her commitment to constantly educating clients about the buying and selling process before, during and after the transaction that make her clients so appreciative of her work.

“The best part about my job is that at the end of the deal, everyone is happy. This is the most satisfying work I have ever done. I work hard to make sure all my clients –sellers and buyers — feel 100% satisfied with the transaction, and the result is that people who start out as clients, remain as friends and neighbors.”

When she isn’t working, Kim enjoys SCUBA diving, beach days and learning more about Mexican wines…. You can reach Kim via or by calling (toll free from US/Canada) 866 694 9849 or in Mexico – 998 100 3125.
