Lane Simmons’ business experience in México began in the 1970’s and he became a permanent resident in 1995. Lane is a Certified International Real Estate Specialist, and since becoming the broker of RE/MAX Colonial in 1997, he and his team have helped hundreds of foreigners navigate the process of purchasing and selling real estate in the San Miguel de Allende area as well as elsewhere in México.
In 2000, Lane authored a real estate buyer’s guide for foreigners that was endorsed by the editors of two of San Miguel newspapers, including Atención San Miguel. He has written, been written about, and been interviewed for numerous articles for English-language newspapers in México, and international media including CNN, Money, Financial Times, Discover Mexico, and International Living.
Lane has also shared his knowledge of living and investing in México and the Mexican real estate market as a guest speaker at conferences and seminars internationally, and the local college, Instituto Allende.
Having resided in several diverse areas of México, Lane first visited San Miguel de Allende in 1991. Although he and his family very much enjoy traveling to other parts of the country’s interior and coast, Lane, his wife Becky and their children Francisco and Gloria prefer San Miguel as their home.
