  1. We're in search of a new company to help us with an existing water purification system. For the main house we have combination of carbon and UV light with RO under the kitchen sink. We had to install the RO system because the main house water filtering through the carbon filters and UV tastes terrible and has a weird smell.

    It's been checked out by the supplier who installed the system said it was fine. He said possibly the water should be checked for arsenic. We have not done this. Filters have been changed, etc. We live in Chula Vista.  Our neighbors say their water is fine.

    Any thoughts on this problem and recommendations for a different supplier? We think the problem may be in the filtration or ?? Can PM me if you like. Many thanks!

  2. My husband and I highly recommend Francisco for insurance needs. We have had our car and private healthcare insurance with him for a few years now and very pleased with his personal attention and knowledge of plans. He has gone the extra mile to help me with my first Mexican private healthcare claims. Highly recommended. Has years of experience. He is fluent in English.

  3. Need recommendations for a tax accountant to fill out the US tax forms reporting Mexican bank account information. This will be sent to my US accountant for my 2019 US  taxes. Can send a PM if needed. Many thanks.

    "Any U.S. citizen with foreign bank accounts totaling more than $10,000 must declare them to the IRS and the U.S. Treasury, both on income tax returns and on FinCEN Form 114."

    "Americans with foreign accounts must also submit Form 8938 to the IRS in addition to the largely redundant FBAR form."


  4. Is house insurance a good idea? We're buying a home in Chula Vista. The house has a pool and built primarily with stucco. Our friends say they don't have insurance, as fire hazards are low here and theft issues are a pain to get reimbursement. What is the consensus? Ok to PM. Thanks!

  5. Thinking of selling your home? We would like to BUY a HOME, 3 bedrooms or 2 bedrooms with casita.  Chula Vista Norte area, Libramiento, San Antonio, East or Central Ajijic. Our son attends Loyola and we want to be fairly close to the school.

    LAKE VIEW, modern, open concept preferred. Development ok. Would consider VIEW LOT if ready to build.

    Prefer Sale by Owner. Please send PM. Thank you! 


  6. Do you have recommendations for a dermatologist located in Lakeside area for skin cancer detection? Have had several “moes” surgeries and need screening every 6 months. Also would like recommendations for a dermatologist or plastic surgeon for Botox, Juve injections in either Lakeside or in Guadalajara. Have used Dra. Ana at Dermika and Quality Care’s dermatologist, Dra. Daniella for skin cancer screenings and treatment. Other suggestions? PM is fine. Many thanks.

  7. I'm posting this for our house sitter and pet sitter, Marilyn. She will be visiting us in June and will be available for house and pet sitting in the Lakeside area. We love this woman. She has been caring for our Schnauzer since 2007 and we trust her completely. In her past life she was a Top 100 Realtor and is completely responsible and straightforward. Below is her message. 
    Allow me to introduce myself. I’m Marilyn Robinson, originally from the Berkeley, San Francisco area. Recently retired in San Miguel de Allende, I have time to do the things I enjoy, travel and pet-care. I have many years of experience with cats and dogs, and I love them. As a former Realtor, I can handle most home emergencies. You can leave your pets and home behind worry free. I am available in Ajijic starting the middle of June. Feel free to send me a PM for more information and available dates. Prefer long-term with a minimum of 1week. References are available.
    If you need a Trusted Petsitter and Housesitter, please let me know. 
    Thank You.
