Jeff McGaver

About Jeff McGaver

Originally from Wisconsin Jeff McGaver lived in Los Angeles for 30 years. In 2005, work took him back to the Midwest where he called Chicago home until 2010. He and his partner tired of the hustle and bustle of city life so Jeff took early retirement from the airline industry and they purchased a hobby farm back in Wisconsin. After completely remodeling their 100 year old farm house and preparing the 19th century barns for occupancy, their plan was to take in rescued farm animals. At one point they were shepherding as many as 52 animals. Though Jeff’s passion for animal rescue will never wane, his love for winter did.

They made their first visit to Ajijic in February 2017. It was love at first sight. Returning two months later in April 2017, the decision was made to move. The farm went up for sale, they purchased a home in Riberas del Pilar and loaded their 2 dogs, 5 cats and 1 parrot for the 5 day drive to Lake Chapala. Yes, crossing the border with a parrot can be done. Since arriving Lakeside, 3 more dogs have been added to the menagerie of critters.

Let Jeff McGaver’s own relocation experience help you in your transition to this wonderful life Lakeside. His welcoming personality, good listening skills and sense of humor will make for a positive experience when buying or selling your home with him.


“We just closed the sale of our condo at Birds of Paradise. Jeff was our agent, and he did a really great job for us. He started by giving us a ‘realistic’ price for our property, considering location, condition, etc. Thus we didn’t have any unrealistic expectations in mind. The final selling price was close to the asking price.

What we liked about Jeff was that he always kept us informed as to what was going on. He never hesitated to pick up the phone and call us, even with bad news. (Like when one buyer couldn’t come up with the deposit). Whenever I had a query, he always responded promptly, never left me hanging. I now understand that the sale of a property in Mexico is a lengthy process involving many steps and lots of paperwork. Jeff led us thru the process and did everything to make it as seamless as possible.

We will certainly recommend Jeff to anyone who is selling a property.

FYI, we got Jeff’s name from a recommendation by Pat T. Jeff also sold her unit at Birds of Paradise, and she was very pleased with Jeff’s service.

“Mr. Jeff McGaver,
I wanted to personally thank you for the great job you did for my good friends George and Tish W. Your creativity in trying to find a home that would suit them was remarkable. I appreciate your thinking out of the box and seizing on every opportunity. You will certainly be a realtor that I will recommend to other friends that come looking here in Ajijic.“

“This was the second time we’ve used Jeff Mcgaver and he didn’t disappoint. We were in the US for several months and needed to purchase this time sight unseen. Jeff previewed several houses for us. On the ones we were interested in he did virtual walk throughs with us. One home that looked really good had a lot of traffic noise and a west exposure we would have been unaware of, saved us from a mistake. We are very pleased with the house we ended up purchasing. Jeff spent a lot of time taking pictures doing virtual walk throughs and answering questions.

Thank you“

“Jeff was extremely helpful in selling our house. He was courteous, patient and determined to sell our house quickly and at the target price. He was there anytime we had questions and had the answers for us. During the stressful time of selling a house, Jeff was there to make us laugh, relax and enjoy it. All in all, we appreciated working with him! We’re glad Jeff was our agent.“
– Larry H. and Margarita L.

“I just wanted you to know how much I enjoyed working with Jeff McGaver during my acquisition of my property at Birds of Paradise.
From the moment of initial contact (while still in New Hampshire), to my arrival in Guadalajara, Jeff’s friendly manner, attention to detail and knowledge of both selling and buying real estate, immediately underscored my confidence that I was in most capable hands.

He truly went above and beyond the usual agent responsibilities by assisting with my storage and moving needs, and was quick to respond to any questions that arose throughout the entire process.
In my experience of nine real estate purchases, without exaggerating… Jeff is second to none.
Your agency is indeed fortunate to have him among your team!
Best regards,“
