About Hal Forsyth

CALM, CLEAR and CREATIVE, 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.
His design background perfectly suits showcasing and selling your unique home.

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 longtime partner 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.”


“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 (Seller December 2022)
