Juan Carlos Rodriguez joined the Puerto Vallarta Villas team as a sales agent in July of 2021. Born in Mexico City to a Mexican dad and a Venezuelan mom, he moved to Venezuela when he was 10 months old. Except for two years spent in Madrid, Spain, Venezuela was his home during his younger years. He attended college in Venezuela then moved to Florida and obtained a master’s degree (an MBA) from the University of South Florida. Juan Carlos (JC) then spent 11 years in Florida doing software development and moved back to Venezuela to help care for his mom. While back in his home country, JC worked in wholesale sales at a company that was very similar to the USA’s Home Depot. He loved sales so much he formed his own company and sold refrigeration units to restaurants and businesses. When the political climate changed in his home country – Juan Carlos moved to the island of Aruba where he managed a chain of Cuban Cigar stores. However, the political climate in this Dutch Colony made it hard for him to immigrate permanently and he decided to relocate to Puerto Vallarta four years ago. JC has family in PV and during his time here he has focused on Rentals (short and long term.) His rental clients were always asking him about buying houses and this in turn led JC to approach Puerto Vallarta Villas. He has helped over five hundred people find apartments and homes to rent during his time in Vallarta and looks forward to meeting new clients and helping them find the homes, villas, condos, and properties of their dreams. Juan Carlos is enjoying being in Puerto Vallarta with his girlfriend and two dogs and anticipates a happy transition to selling real estate with Puerto Vallarta Villas. We welcome JC to our staff!
