Love our vida loca! We retired to Puerto Morelos in 2013, and looked to Kim Tempel to find our new home. The whole experience was so different from buying property in the states. Kim helped us every step of the way. She was very knowledgeable of the laws for purchasing property in Mexico as a foreigner. And everything was completed using a reputable lawyer, very thorough title company, and secure banks for the exchange of money and the guaranteed title holding. We are so happy with our home. Thank you Kim Tempel!

We listed our house with Kim and found her guidance invaluable. Whether it was discussing price point, how the house would “show”, or managing our expectations she was a source of great knowledge. She gave us immediate and honest feedback and was always upbeat and positive throughout the whole process. Our trust was rewarded with a relatively painless sale (this is real estate folks!) and a wonderful celebratory dinner.

Thank you Kim for all your hard work.

We have been enjoying our Puerto Morelos vacations for 12 years and had been toying with the idea of owning something on our own but weren’t sure how/where to start.   From Denver CO, we had no idea what the buying process was or had background regarding the rules of owning a beachfront home in Mexico.   We reached out to Kim and she was informative, walked us through the Fideicomiso process and helped us find the perfect place!   We felt at ease because of Kim’s legal background and loved the fact that she was able to set us up with everything we needed to make the transaction smooth and quick!   We closed on our unit within 4 weeks!  She was fantastic in making sure everything was coordinated so that we could enjoy our beach front property quickly! We recommend Kim to our family and friends who are interested in buying in paradise, aka Puerto Morelos!

We worked with Kim when purchasing our home and she was excellent! She showed us about 6 properties but she could tell where our hearts were and helped us to purchase our dream!! Everything went smoothly and Kim is now a friend! We recommend Kim!  Gracias Kim, see you on our next visit!

Our experience in purchasing real estate on the Riviera Maya with Kim Tempel was incredible. Her knowledge in Mexican real estate law was second to none. Her professionalism when it comes to the details of showing properties was noticed and appreciated. When buying or selling in a foreign country, you need to be represented by the best, and that person for us was Kim!

Kim Tempel is a superb real estate agent: professional, intelligent, and ever diligent. She is the go-to person for buying in the Puerto Morelos market, the best kept secret on the Riviera Maya!

Buying a place in a new country is an unsettling experience, so having Kim Tempel, who has a legal background and has been involved in the local real estate scene for years made the process of buying our condo a relatively easy process.

Kim showed us a condo far nicer than the ones we had found on our own and for a lower price.

Using Kim netted us real value.

Kim made the stress of house hunting in a foreign country fun!  Her professionalism, knowledge, and her desire to see us in our dream home was evident throughout our search.  We came into the search wanting to see 2 specific properties.  Kim also lined up an additional 2 additional properties for us to see based on our conversations of what we wanted/needed in a home.  We ended up purchasing one of Kim’s suggested homes!  When the sale is finished, Kim continues to remain in many of her clients lives.  We are lucky to be able to call her our friend.   If you are looking for someone who will work not only with you, but for you, in finding that perfect home, then Kim is the realtor for you!

Kim Tempel is just AMAZING! My husband and I were in Puerto Morelos this year and are interested in purchasing in Puerto Morelos. Kim was referred to us and boy are we lucky! She is super knowledgeable in the Real Estate Market and knows the law very well. She was very helpful and answered all our questions. We highly recommend Kim to anyone interested in purchasing in beautiful MX.

We had a wonderful experience working with Kim Tempel (Run Away Realty) to find a vacation home in Puerto Morelos. From the moment we met her we realized we had a local real estate agent who was very knowledgeable and helpful regarding the Puerto Morelos real estate market. We weren’t quite sure what type of transaction we wanted but Kim was able to show us a very diverse inventory that only a local person could provide. We found her very professional and she communicated with us often through the buying process. We had such a great experience that we have again enlisted Kim to help us find a second property in the area. Can’t recommend Kim and her partner Gabriel enough. They really are part of the local community!
