APIVAC Inaugurates 2017-2018 Board of Directors.


Alfredo Casillas will lead Vallarta’s Association of Real Estate Professionals during the 2017-2018 term.

A few weeks ago, a ceremony was held to inaugurate APIVAC’s new board of directors, which will govern the Asociación de Profesionales Inmobiliarios de Puerto Vallarta for the 2017-2018 term. The event took place at the Sheraton Buganvilias Resort & Convention Center and was attended by professionals from the local real estate industry.

Leaving his position as vice president of the association, the new president is Alfredo Casillas, who replaces Rebeca Hernández, the 2016-2017 APIVAC president.

Julio Gil Bustillos, national president of COPIM, the Consejo de Profesionales Inmobiliarios de México (Council of Real Estate Professionals of Mexico), was one of the event’s special guests. During his speech, he recognized the work done by the outgoing board of APIVAC, which is affiliated with COPIM, and also took the opportunity to call on Jalisco’s Congress to advance the establishment of a real estate law.

COPIM and the associations that compromise it have been promoting this initiative since last year, in addition to other projects, such as the creation of a national real estate MLS and the professionalization of consultants.

“We have to be ready to receive Jalisco’s real estate law, which based on Nayarit’s, should benefit those interested in acquiring a property through an agency or real estate professional. We are working hand in hand with COPIM, as well as with other state associations and Jalisco’s Ministry of Economic Development, to achieve the objectives set.” —Alfredo Casillas, 2017-2018 president of APIVAC.
