- REAL ESTATE DONE DIFFERENTLY -  Hal’s desire is to be a DIFFERENT kind of Real Estate Agent and to build lasting relationships with INTEGRITY.

With 15 plus years of living in Mexico, Mexican home renovation and the Lake Chapala Real Estate Market, Hal understands the needs and goals of his clients, and is fond of saying "I don't do problems.... I do solutions"

His design background perfectly suits showcasing and selling your unique home. His popular YouTube channel showcases those marketing skills. He is one of the top performing Agents of Lake Chapala Real Estate, with a long list of happy selling and buying clients (as his testimonials on this page confirm)

Hal operated a successful home renovation company North of the Border. His background in corporate staging with heavy hitters like Home Depot and Kohler along with a keen design esthetic helped transform many an ugly duckling house into a stylish swan.

A Canadian by birth, Hal spent time in Costa Rica, the Dominican Republic, numerous Caribbean Islands, and Italy before settling here in Mexico. “The joy in this corner of Mexico is almost palpable and unlike any place I have ever found”.

Hal and his husband Thomas divide their time between their primary residence in Ajijic and a home on the nearby Pacific Coast.

Hal’s believes, "Step one is helping you decide if Lake Chapala is your place. Then what corner of our community best suits you. Once those decisions have been made, your perfect home will call to you. My job is to help you find it and listen."

- BIENES RAICES HECHOS DE MANERA DIFERENTE - El deseo de Hal es ser un tipo DIFERENTE de Agente de Bienes Raíces y construir relaciones duraderas con INTEGRIDAD.

Con más de 15 años de vivir en México, la renovación de casas mexicanas y el Lago de Chapala Mercado de Bienes Raíces, Hal entiende las necesidades y objetivos de sus clientes, y es aficionado a decir "Yo no hago problemas.... Hago soluciones"

Su experiencia en el diseño se adapta perfectamente a mostrar y vender su casa única. Su popular canal de YouTube muestra esas habilidades de marketing. Él es uno de los mejores agentes de Lake Chapala Real Estate, con una larga lista de clientes felices de compra y venta (como sus testimonios en esta página confirman).

Hal operó una exitosa empresa de renovación de viviendas al norte de la frontera. Su experiencia en la puesta en escena corporativa con pesos pesados como Home Depot y Kohler, junto con una estética de diseño agudo ayudó a transformar muchos un patito feo casa en un cisne con estilo.

Canadiense de nacimiento, Hal pasó un tiempo en Costa Rica, República Dominicana, numerosas islas del Caribe e Italia antes de establecerse aquí en México. "La alegría en este rincón de México es casi palpable y diferente a cualquier lugar que he encontrado".

Hal y su pareja desde hace mucho tiempo Thomas dividir su tiempo entre su residencia principal en Ajijic y una casa en la cercana costa del Pacífico.



  • Dreaming of buying a house in Mexico someday, my partner and I took up a new hobby: watching real estate videos. Most agents were amiable and earnest while others left us alone with a music track and our thoughts. 
    Then suddenly there was Hal--different from all the rest!
    Before virtually inviting us into a house in La Floresta, he set the stage for the character of the home as well as the nature of the neighborhood. Once welcomed inside, the features, details and  potentialities of the abode were revealed with informed clarity and a kind of genteel grace. 
    At the end of the video, my  partner and I agreed that Hal would be the agent of choice when the time came to buy. A year later, we made that call. 
    We knew from the start that Hal was a rarity. It was clear that his primary interest was not making the sale, but rather finding the right home for the right people, however long the journey. With patience, diligence and always with good humor, he became our guide through the sometimes choppy, sometimes ecstatic waters of home buying.
    His extensive knowledge of houses and their inner workings combined with his relational and negotiating skills made us feel comfortable and well taken care of. Throughout the process--from  the home inspection, to lining up potential contractors, to a required visit to the Natorio and right up to closing, we could always count on Hal to be punctual, present and engaged.
    Though so much more could be said, the outcome speaks for itself. The home that "spoke to us" came with an enormous obstacle. But Hal's philosophy is that "where there's a problem, there's always a solution." And he lives it! We know in our hearts that without him, we wouldn't be waking up every day in that house which exceeds our wildest dreams. And not a day goes by that we are  grateful for our amazing home and for Hal--one of our favorite humans in realty and in life!
    --Maridel and Johnnie
  • "I have recently sold my home in Canacinta at full asking price. Hal Forsyth, my agent, not only sold my property in 10 days but he was creative and punctual in every moment.  His video tour really captured the essence of my home helping it to be seen in the best light possible.

    All in all, it was a pleasure to work with Hal. I highly recommend Hal and would never use any other agent lakeside.  Thank you, Hal!"  - Oscar Farias (Seller 2023)


  • "It has been an upmost pleasure for me to have you as my agent on Hacienda Margarita. I knew you were the BEST man for the job and that has proven to be true. I admire you as a decent human being, as a professional and a man of his word. With  gratitude" - Margaret Ancira (Seller 2023)


  • "Hal was the listing agent for a home that my husband and I wanted to see.  Hal arranged for us to see other homes as well.  At the appointed time, Hal picked us up from the rental where we were staying. Hal was super friendly and shared his knowledge of Ajijic as we drove through the town.  Hal took the time to get to know us and we truly felt that Hal was interested in building a relationship with us, rather than just selling us a house. It was love at first sight when we toured the home we originally wanted to see.  With Hal’s calm and solution-oriented approach, we overcame some interesting challenges; our offer was accepted. Hal’s long term relationship with the seller was absolutely crucial to our success. In short, we sailed effortlessly through a perfectly scheduled closing. I’m typing this in my new home; I’m pinching myself.  Hal, and the team at Lake Chapala Real Estate surpassed our every expectation and made buying our dream home in Mexico just the first step in our adventure. We couldn’t be happier to have Hal and his team as our friends. Thank you Hal, thank you and the team, sincerely!" -Bruce S and Ron C (Buyers 2023)
  • “Please put this review on your internet as I cannot personally thank you enough for the superb way you handled the long-distance sale of my house. Your video including local restaurants, activities available, amenities and the tasteful & beautiful photography allowed the contract to be signed in two days after listing. Your over the top extra help with Power-of -Attorney, Notaria legal work and bank bureaucracy was equaled by your courtesy & integrity.  I am happy that we have become friends and would be delighted to recommend you to anyone.” -Sarah Taleen Smith (Seller 2023)


  • “We’ve known Hal for upwards of 12 years & had always been impressed by his business acumen & integrity. When he joined the impressive team at Lake Chapala Real Estate & we were selling our two Lakeside homes, it was a “no brainer” as to which realtor to select to execute those sales! Not only did Hal pick the right price point, but also his professional marketing strategy, enabled us to sell both homes quickly &, in the case of one, over the asking price. Backed by the superb administrative team of LCRE, the whole process was effortless & stress free! Another job well done!” _ Elaine Kellaway & Luis Bermudez (DOUBLE Sellers 2023)

He is simply the best person and realtor we have had the pleasure to work with.  - Colleen Murphy and Chrisan Herrod (Buyers 2022)

"Hal era el agente de listado para un hogar que mi marido y yo queríamos ver.  Hal organizó para nosotros ver otras casas también.  A la hora acordada, Hal nos recogió del alquiler donde nos alojábamos. Hal era super amable y compartió su conocimiento de Ajijic mientras conducíamos por la ciudad.  Hal se tomó el tiempo para llegar a conocernos y realmente sentimos que Hal estaba interesado en construir una relación con nosotros, en lugar de sólo vendernos una casa. Fue amor a primera vista cuando visitamos la casa que originalmente queríamos ver.  Con el enfoque tranquilo y orientado a soluciones de Hal, superamos algunos retos interesantes; nuestra oferta fue aceptada. La larga relación de Hal con el vendedor fue absolutamente crucial para nuestro éxito. En resumen, navegamos sin esfuerzo a través de un cierre perfectamente programado.

Su video incluyendo restaurantes locales, actividades disponibles, servicios y la fotografía de buen gusto y hermosa permitió que el contrato se firmó en dos días después de la lista.
