Real Estate Buyers Discover Mexico’s Hidden Jewel as Two Leading Firms Join Forces

United Country Real Estate, CDR Debut Office in San Miguel de Allende

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - (BUSINESS WIRE) - Often compared to Santa Fe, N.M., and Aspen, Colo., in the United States, San Miguel de Allende is valued as one of the most unique and desirable areas of Mexico by retirees and vacationers. That said, not many Mexican citizens have discovered this fantastic area of the country yet.

Changing that will be the focus of a recent partnership that has formed between United Country Real Estate, the leading lifestyle real estate company in the U.S., and local market real estate leader CDR of San Miguel de Allende, Mexico.

“We want to help consumers discover this amazing and totally unique area of Mexico,” says Jim Dolan of United Country – CDR. “Once people begin to understand the ‘lifestyle’ that we lead here, they will find it extremely attractive.” San Miguel was recently named the fourth-best city in the world by U.S. magazine Travel and Leisure.

Jean Paul Pelletier, Mexico master franchisor with United Country Real Estate, signed an agreement with Dolan and Howze to have exclusive rights to two states in Mexico – Guanajuato and Querétaro. San Miguel will be their first office under the United Country – CDR franchise agreement, followed by additional offices in the coming years.

“By joining one of the largest networks of real estate agents and auctioneers, we can offer our clients more options when it comes to the best approach to buying or selling a particular property,” said Nancy Howze. “The one-of-a-kind marketing program allows us to introduce more buyers to the area.”

“This is a monumental signing in United Country’s history and a huge step in developing its presence with our friends south of the border,” said Mike Duffy, president of United Country Real Estate.

United Country – CDR can be contacted by phone at 832-895-6068 (from the U.S.) or 011-52-415-154-5106 / 154-7809, email at, and their full listings can be viewed online at
