MEET Our Team
DINE, Mexico’s premier real estate development company, proudly presents the team entrusted with client relationships for Punta Mita Properties, the exclusive on-site real estate sales and marketing organization of the acclaimed master-planned community. Punta Mita Properties has offices in the Punta Mita Real Estate Center – located in the heart of the community – as well as in both the St. Regis and Four Seasons resorts.
As Sales and Marketing Director of Punta Mita Properties, Brendan leads the sales and marketing team, and is responsible for the strategic planning and execution of DINE’s new five-year development plan for the Punta Mita master-plan community. Brendan will work closely with DINE’s executive team in aligning the sales organization with the developer in all Punta Mita projects.
Most recently, Brendan held the positions of Residential Project Director of Four Seasons Punta Mita and Director of Sales Operations for the Four Seasons Residence Club and Residences Punta Mita, working with both DINE and Four Seasons. In this position, he was responsible for growing the Four Seasons residential brand internationally, leading all sales and marketing initiatives, and assisting in product design and launch. In 2013, Brendan was promoted by Four Seasons to lead the company’s first ever Four Seasons Real Estate Brokerage, responsible for DINE’s Four Seasons Private Residences in Punta Mita as well as operating as the authorized resale brokerage for fractional sales within Four Seasons. Brendan oversaw the Residence Club (fractional) and Private Residences (whole ownership) products, which both sold out completely resulting in over $150 million in developer sales since his team’s arrival in 2005.
During Brendan’s over 15 years of experience in residential resort sales and marketing with Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts’ Residential Division, he has managed projects in the United States, Mexico and Costa Rica with combined sales of over $800 million.
Brendan earned a 4-year Division I baseball scholarship and holds a double major in Marketing and Management from the University of Portland, Oregon. Brendan and his wife, Nicole, have lived in Riviera Nayarit, Mexico for over 10 years, currently in Bucerias with their three sons.
Marcelo originally hails from Mazatlan, Mexico, and has been living in Riviera Nayarit for the past 9 years with his wife and two children. He first visited Punta Mita back in 2001 on a golf vacation and was immediately captivated by the incredible natural beauty of the area. When the opportunity arose to join the team of Punta Mita Properties 9 years ago, Marcelo was eager to return to this beautiful paradise. With over 12 years of experience in residential real estate sales, Marcelo is a consummate professional in the Mexican real estate and its processes. An inquisitive person by nature, he is well-known for having a vast knowledge about Punta Mita and its history, and his warm, engaging personality has made him a favorite with both residents and Punta Mita staff members.
Marcelo has a true passion for real estate and helping others to be able to live and experience the Punta Mita lifestyle the way he does: playing golf, enjoying the beautiful Pacific Ocean, taking advantage of the abundance of sports and activities available in our region and, most importantly, spending time with family.
