Jeff Kimmel is from San Francisco. He has been a California lawyer since 1980 and was licensed as a California Real Estate Broker in 1987.
Known for unmatched integrity and a history of success in business, Jeff has evolved into a creative problem solver and skilled listener with a gift for organization, detail and quality results.
You can rely on Jeff to communicate clearly, and often, as a loyal and reliable agent representing your interests alone and help you take the risk out of buying and selling real estate in Mexico.
Since 1972 Jeff has lived, studied, worked, and traveled in Mexico. San Miguel officially became his family’s home in 2012. He is fully bi-lingual and his long-standing network of personal, business and legal associations in Mexico are an asset to both him and his clients.
Jeff’s wife since 1982, Marta is an interior designer and talented creator of furniture who co-founded San Miguel’s 100 Woman Who Care group for whom Jeff has volunteered from its inception.
“When one buys a house in another country, hiring the top professionals in real estate and legal services is essential. My experience buying a home in San Miguel de Allende was perfect because I hired the best of both worlds – Jeff Kimmel. Not only is Jeff expert in Mexico/San Miguel real estate, but he is also a legal expert (and attorney) and was able to guide me through the many yet all-important details of a complicated transaction. Mine was particularly complex because the purchase was an owner financed deal, an unusual situation in Mexico. Jeff is an expert in putting financial deals together and in this case, he went above and beyond to ensure that it was responsible, trustworthy and fair to both parties. The time and attention to infinite details required genuine expertise and oftentimes, considerable patience. Qualities Jeff has in unlimited supply. And while Jeff does great deals, he is also a wonderful person to work with, not to mention his real estate and legal teams. Great people, always straightforward and honest, kind and compassionate. I would highly recommend Jeff Kimmel for any real estate deal and/or legal needs. He is the real deal!”
“Jeff Kimmel took the stress and the risk out of our buying real estate in San Miguel.Jeff really is the best. He listened carefully to us when described what we wanted. He expertly found the house we had been looking for: the right style, the right price, and it was in perfect condition.Jeff is clearly an experienced attorney and real estate broker who is fluent in Spanish. Besides answering every question that we had (and there were many), carefully guiding us through the process of finalizing our offer and wiring our down payment, he stayed in touch with us on a daily/hourly basis. That’s the thing about Jeff, he responds immediately to one’s questions, and has an answer the same day. You could not ask for a person to communicate more clearly. He led us through a flawless closing which included me representing my husband using of a power of attorney that Jeff had previously arranged for us with a Notary and, Jeff even drafted a lease agreement for us (free of charge) so that we could lease back our new house to the sellers making our purchase an instant great investment and making the sellers’ lives less stressful (they are building a new home here in SMA). We recommend Jeff without reservation.”

“We highly recommend Jeff Kimmel. Not only is he a highly qualified professional, and a good listener, he is an extremely nice person who is very involved in our community. Jeff impressed us with his technical knowledge and promptness. The day after we signed the listing agreement he called with a possible buyer. It all happened so fast that we were not ready to show the house, but he convinced us that our house fit exactly what the buyer was looking for. The next morning, he arrived with a lovely lady who ended up buying our house but only after Jeff made sure all her concerns and questions had been fully answered. Jeff handled the entire transaction with great attention to detail and flawless organization. The fact that he is fully bi-lingual in Spanish was a big bonus. Particularly during the closing, which can seem chaotic and strange, we really felt that he fully understood the process and that he was protecting our interests at all times. We are very happy to recommend Jeff for your real estate needs.”
“We have purchased and sold many properties in the United States and are well versed in the ins and outs of real estate transactions, but we were new to San Miguel (and to Mexico) and were more than a bit intimidated by a completely new and different way of doing business. We were lucky enough to meet Jeff Kimmel who was able to guide us throughout the process. Thanks to him, there were never any surprises. He thoroughly and clearly explained every aspect of our transaction. We knew what to expect and what to look out for. He followed through in a timely fashion on every detail and was able to answer every question. It really felt that we had someone working for us that was truly on our side. We would not hesitate to recommend Jeff for all your real estate needs.”
