Experience You Can Trust

As our broker and team leader, Robin Hodgson has had more experience selling real estate than all the rest of the team combined…30 years in Western Canada as sales representative, broker, company owner and mortgage broker plus the past 10 years here in La Paz. He actually moved to La Paz to retire, but, after a few years of enjoying the beaches, exploring the desert, and generally having the best time ever, Robin decided to go back to selling real estate, helping others live the Baja dream. Robin really understands the market and the ins and outs of buying and selling real estate in this beautiful country.  He is well-known for his direct, honest character and strong business ethics. 


Jim and Rebecca MacDonald moved to La Paz from the California Bay Area and now live here full time. They purchased their home with the help of Vista Properties, and enjoyed the experience so much they decided to join the team! They are passionate about exploring and enjoying all that La Paz and Baja have to offer and love sharing their experiences and local knowledge with visitors and potential buyers. They write about their experiences on the Vista Properties blog at This Baja Life, where they post about great local restaurants, beaches, off-road adventures and must-see sights while you are here. Both have extensive backgrounds in marketing and also enjoy giving sellers advice on how to best prepare and market their homes for sale.

Miriam Welldon, Robin’s wife and business partner, was well-prepared for the real estate industry with her former career in business administration and property management.  She began with the team as administrator…looking after the website, contracts and marketing. Over the past few years her focus has turned to sales and client service, a custom-fit for her. With her cheerful, positive attitude and her strong work ethic, Miriam manages to pack a lot of punch into each day. She balances her work and commitment to the clients at Vista Properties with lots of fitness, beachtime and hobbies.



Olivia Hernández Téllez has a degree in tourism enterprises administration and more than 3 years of experience in condominium regime and business administration.  She brings to Vista a wealth of knowledge of the Southern Baja area along with a desire to provide the best in real estate services.

Fern Corraini made her permanent move to El Centenario in 2008 and is proud and grateful to call Mexico “home”.  Fern’s love of travel and her many careers (English teacher in Canada and Guadalajara, Customs officer, beekeeper, travel rep in the Dominican, sandblaster, motel owner) have proven that she is versatile, adaptable and personable. She brings a variety of skills and a lot of enthusiasm to her position as our administrator.
