Dean McConkey


Sales & Real Estate Development





In about 1990, Dean started planning his life in 5-year cycles. By setting personal and professional goals that he wanted to reach in half a decade, he was better able to make decisions that would help him achieve them. Thus, Casa Alegre, a home he bought in Puerto Vallarta, which means happy home, was born. When preparing to move to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, he realized he needed to secure retirement funds in a vehicle he understood and trusted:  real estate investments.
With 25+ years of land development, lending and real estate industry experience, Dean brings a strategic combination of a builder’s eye and financial expertise applied personally to every client’s situation.
From construction to design to decorating to financial planning, Dean has experience in the U.S. and Puerto Vallarta in every facet of the home buying process.

Alex Salgado




Alex Salgado was born in Mexico City and raised in Chicago Illinois.  Alex started working at the age of 18 in the restaurant business and, within one year, he became the general manager of a leading restaurant chain.
Four years later, he decided that he wanted to go into business for himself and it just happened that he met a  shoe maker that wanted to sell his business and was willing to teach Alex the trade.  Alex assumed the business and five years later, he transformed Al's Shoe Repair into a successful business.
Eventually, Alex sold the show repair business and moved to Puerto Vallarta where he began working in property management.  This allowed him to realize his passion for real estate and architecture.
Alex joins our team with a strong entrepreneurial spirit, a warm and friendly approach to people, a desire to help and help others achieve their goals.  When asked about the most important aspect of his career in real estate, Alex will tell you, "It's about the people, developing trust, working ethically, and making sure I help people achieve their goal of home ownership in Puerto Vallarta."
