In February 2020, real estate agency SB Realtors formally announced its appointment as a master broker of Ancora, an exclusive condominium located on Av. El Anclote in Punta de Mita, one of the most dynamic microdestinations in Vallarta · Nayarit.
Currently in the final phase of construction, this modernist beach development will be composed of four housing levels with 24 one- and two-bedroom apartments, ranging in size between 818 and 1,517 square feet.
After its successful sales stage and with the delivery of the first apartments planned for the fourth quarter of 2022, the Vallarta Real Estate Guide editorial team took the opportunity to talk with Alexis Silva, director of SB Realtors, who kindly shared more details about the challenges they overcame during this stage, as well as some factors that have kept the destination’s real estate industry dynamic throughout the pandemic.
Sales Stage Completed
“We are very happy and satisfied with the work done in the commercialization of Ancora. Despite the fact that the health contingency occurred practically at the moment when we assumed control of sales, the talent and commitment of our team remained constant and efficient during that stage of uncertainty for everyone. Thanks to that level of commitment, today we can boast that this great goal has been achieved for those involved in the project. On the other hand, the developer was blunt in telling us that they would not stop, nor suspend the project, so our approach aligned with their expectations to exceed them.”
In addition to this, he commented that the exclusive design of Ancora, as well as its privileged location at the foot of El Anclote Beach, the main beach of Punta de Mita, were two of the leading factors that made this modern development an excellent investment opportunity for all those who want to enjoy the relaxed beach lifestyle offered by this impressive and luxury area of the Banderas Bay.
Ancora is a modernist beach condo that combines open planning public and commercial spaces, including two restaurants. The private units are specially designed to support buyers in living a distinctive beach lifestyle.
Punta de Mita
At the northern end of the Banderas Bay is Punta de Mita, a small town that stands out for its beautiful beaches, friendly people, gastronomy ranging from conventional to gourmet and peaceful picturesque streets where establishments ranging from traditional to high-level and modern converge.
In this context, Alexis Silva adds: “El Anclote Beach is one of the most visited beaches in Punta de Mita because it is ideal for water sports or docking the yacht off the coast while enjoying the rest of the day. Thanks to its geographical features, in the surrounding area there are several more beaches worth visiting, including Destiladeras and La Lancha, both of which are true natural paradises for surfing enthusiasts.”
“In addition to beaches and surfing, right here is Punta Mita, the residential community that houses the exclusive Four Seasons and St. Regis hotels. At these locations, you can reserve a diversity of attractions, including championship golf courses, tennis courts and spas with different treatments. In this peninsula, you can find everything and for everyone—that is why it has become one of the most privileged areas of the bay.”
Challenges Turned into Opportunities
The director of SB Realtors shares an unexpected phenomenon that not only helped accelerate Ancora’s sales but has also helped to maintain the entire real estate market in Puerto Vallarta and Riviera Nayarit dynamic: “The pandemic definitely came to revolutionize the world. Its effects gave a different perspective to both companies and families, where new roles were assumed thanks to technology. Remote work created a new dynamic, and, in this way, people realized that they no longer had to be physically in their hometowns to fulfill their daily tasks and that, instead, they could enjoy longer seasons in this beach destination. This new reality quickly began to be prevalent and noticeable, and it became a trend during the second half of 2020, which motivated buyers to make purchasing decisions more quickly.”
Before ending this brief conversation, Alexis Silva took the opportunity to thank each of the people who trusted both in the amenities and attributes of Ancora and SB Realtors: “We appreciate the trust of the developers of this project to join efforts and contribute to its success. We are very happy to complete the sales stage, and we know that more opportunities will come with this great building and marketing team that we have consolidated.”
