Mexican Investors Doing Real Estate Deals in Florida is Not a Surprising Trend


For those of us with longstanding ties to Mexico (I was born there), the story that appeared in Wednesday's Miami Herald was not big news; however, the fact that there are a growing number of investors in Mexico, Central America, and Latin America that are interested in investing large sums of money in Florida - particularly South Florida - may be a big surprise to some Floridians.

(You can read the May 25, 2011 story entitled "Mexican investors see Miami as safe haven for their money" and written by Alfonso Chardy of the Miami Herald online for free.)

East Coast Opportunity (ECO) Opens Offices in Miami

Given, it is news that three men from Mexico are doing business over in the Latitude Building (in the Brickell district) as executives of the East Coast Opportunity Group. Mario Alonso, Emilio Braun Burillo and Iñaki Negrete helm the Miami Office; their company LinkedIn page (still being built) has Kelly P. as their office manager for almost a year now.

ECO will be working with Mexican investors (and other foreign investors) to find and buy real estate properties that they believe to be good deals with the ability to turn a nice profit for them. They'll sell some, they'll rent some.
