Susan Fogel blog

About Susan Fogel: I march to a different drummer. That is why I live in Mexico. And that is why, during my career as a mortgage broker in “money-running-in-the-streets” Silicon Valley, I offered loans to single women head-of-households, immigrants, same-sex couples, and other square pegs.
I wrote consumer advocacy columns for Metro and contributed to the San Jose Mercury News Virtual Real Estate Forum. I wrote and appeared in my own real estate segment on BAY/TV in San Francisco. Since moving to Mexico I have written articles for the Gringo Gazette, the English language newspaper of Southern Baja, International Living, and Mexico Insider.
I have talked about writing a book for years. Finally, in the past few months I have pulled it together and written my first book about buying real estate in Mexico. I did it for you. And I hope it has the information you are looking for and need. I wish I had a book like this when I bought my first house in Mexico. This is the first book in a series I am planning and they will help you, the foreign consumer seeking to make a new life or just take extended vacations in Mexico.
After more than nine years living in La Paz, Baja California Sur, I can truly say this is my home. I spent years ranting and raving about the inefficiencies, the garbage, the stray dogs, and cars and ATVs on the beaches. I still miss PBS, bookstores, libraries, and Nordstrom. I still yell about driving on the beach.
We have many friends, mostly Mexicans. My husband and I are invited to important family occasions; we entertain often, and are entertained. Some days I just collect shells and float in the warm water of the Gulf of California. I have sold real estate and been a consultant to the international mortgage industry.
The most satisfying, and surprising thing for me is that my Mexican friends ask me for referrals for attorneys, doctors, and for help with real estate and financial issues.
