Architect / General Contractor in Loreto


Hello,

Does anyone recommend an architect and/or general contractor in Loreto?

We purchased a lot in Nopolo and we'd like to build soon (once the fideicomiso is done...).

Contact in Santa Rosalia...


Hi bajameerkat,

YES, My neighbor


Hello bajameerkat,

Jesus Cortez on Callejon Pipila. Great guy, excellent architect, totally professional, speaks perfect English, and well regarded by locals (both native and us transplants).

Jesus is my neighbor. Please tell him that his neighbor David Hunt (Calle Pipila, white block fence with red gate) referred you.

I've seen his work in many phases. He is the guy we will use when we're ready to take the next steps. (in a year or so).

Jesus Cortez, Callejon Pipila, El Centro, Loreto, BCS, MX.
phone 135 0281 (local) 52 613 first if dialing from US, (I think).

Best wishes. David Hunt & Huihsin Chung. Hopeto meet you one day soon. We'll be down in Nov. again.




Its all just stuff and some numbers.
A day spent sailing isn\'t deducted from one\'s life.
Peace, Love, and Music

We have no personal experience with a Loreto architect. We did our own "designs" with pen and paper and had a local contractor (Martín Sanchez) help and do the construction. Simple buildings.

Jesus Cortez seems to be the most prominent local architect; we have friends who used him and they are very happy. He does good work. Probably the choice if you want a really elegant place.

There are a couple of new people in town but I don't kow much about them. We're in the states right now so I can't look them up. But I'd try Cortez first. He's got a web site:

Thanks everyone for responsing to my post. I received many recommendations for Jesus Cortes - I believe reputations are generally earned (good or bad), so we'll get in contact with Mr. Cortes.

Don, you are the second person that also mentions Martin Sanchez in a positive light - thanks.

By the way, my wife and I created a site on Loreto with a few videos and pictures you might be interested in:

Not much yet, but once we start building I hope to post a lot more.

Only problem with Jesus, is that due to his great work and reputation, he is also very busy. Plan on a long lead time if you want to use him. Otherwise, he is the greatest!

( Don't even thing about using him as a builder, he's years out.)

I do NOT recommend electrica Gonzalez. This so called electrician Marcos Gonzalez will send in a crew of inexperienced idiots and use garbage second hand wiring and hardware he got out of the dumpster at Loreto Bay and basically allow these clowns to botch the job while he goes off drinking at your expense. Caused me a lot of headaches and not to mention money and I certainly don´t mind NOT sending him any future business.
