Mayan Lake Realty (MLR) is a well-established, bespoke-style Real Estate Agency (estate agency) in Lake Atitlan, Guatemala, providing a professional, knowledgeable and personal service for all your real estate requirements: Houses for Sale, Land for Sale, Houses for Rent (Long , Short term & Vacation), and Property Management.
MLR is based in the Guatemalan Highland’s town of Panajachel on the shores of the famous volcanic Lake Atitlan. Our portfolio covers towns around the lake shore and parts of the caldera basin.
We are an El Salvadorian / British couple, who have chosen Lake Atitlan as our home. Between us we have an extensive knowledge of Guatemala, the Lake Atitlan area, real estate, development, and tourism. Not only can we help you with all your real estate requirements, but also with any transport or travel, finding a Spanish teacher or school, or information on volunteer opportunities, visa requirements, or supporting one of the many wonderful NGOs (non-profits) working around the lake.
We are here to help you find your perfect, dream home to buy or rent, and we will do whatever we can to make this experience as stress free as possible. With rentals we go the extra mile that other agencies do not, plus we have the resources of a network of services that can help you literally door to door with your rental. Plus, we provide extensive Welcome Notes to all our guests.
Buying in a property in a foreign country like Guatemala can seem very daunting without the language or local know-how. We can help you through the labyrinth of Guatemalan bureaucracy and red tape, acting as your advocate and translator; be it for the purchase or a property, to ship furniture or other goods, or just to renew your tourist visa.
Once you have found your perfect home, if you are not planning to be there full-time, we can help you rent your home as a profitable vacation rental, and/or manage your property, keeping an eye on maintenance (very important during the rainy season) and paying your worker and utility bills, etc.
We also act as agents for Century 21/Antigua Fine Homes, based in Antigua, for the whole of the Lake Atitlan area.
If you wish to buy land and build we can also help you with regards to recommendations of architects, engineers, builders, etc. We will leave you in good hands or help you through this exciting process. We look forward to working with you!
