Very knowledgeable about the real estate market.

Samantha and Dean are a delight to work with. Very knowledgeable about the local real estate market, responsive and supportive throughout the process. We are very happy with our house purchase and are grateful to them both for helping us navigate from start to finish..

Would recommend them without reservation!

In our rather long journey to sell our home in Cabo we began to question whether or not we would ever find a competent realtor. Thankfully Samantha reached out to us and despite the difficult time associated with Covid travel bans and restrictions, she and her partner Dean Short displayed the professionalism we needed to get the job done! We could not have succeeded with her and would recommend her without reservation...

Dean and Samantha were the exact people we wanted to work with!

We arrived in Mexico with the intent to purchase a second home. After meeting with two realtors, we were discouraged and confused and not sure we would proceed. However, we then met Dean and Samantha and instantly realized they were the exact people we wanted to work with. Their professionalism, attention to detail, extensive knowledge of this international market, and dedication to their clients is remarkable. They helped and supported us through each stage of the process, kept us informed, and assisted us with every step we needed to complete. We are absolutely thrilled with our new home in Cabo San Lucas - something that would not have happened without Dean and Samantha! .

They were there every step of the way!

Dean and Samantha helped us find our condo. They were great to deal with and helped us find a condo fast. They were there every step of the way. They helped with the closing when we couldn’t be there. Then after the closing they helped furnishing our condo. They thought of every detail. Even after the sale they are still there to help with information about Cabo to make our transition easier. We will definitely use them when we upgrade our condo.

Very knowledgeable and helpful.

We decided to purchase a property in San Jose Del Cabo in 2020 while the COVID pandemic was on and weren’t sure how we could do this while still in Canada. We contacted Cabo Real Estate Services and we were very lucky to have Dean Short contact us. He and his wife Samantha walked us through the whole purchase process and they were very knowledgeable and helpful with all the steps in purchasing a foreign property in Mexico. They did a FaceTime walk through with us and went over our condo in great detail. We felt very confident in completing our purchase. They went above and beyond to help us with details including recommendations for a handyman to assist with a few things before we arrived. I would highly recommend this great team to help you find the perfect property for you! 

Above and beyond!

Dean and Samantha went above and beyond to help us find our place in Cabo. They not only helped us with the purchase, they helped us with furnishing the unit, shipping items from the US and getting a great property manager. We consider them friends, not just Realtors and hope to see more of them in Cabo.

Highly Recommended!

Samantha and Dean made our first time Cabo home purchase fantastic! Not only did they take the time to help us navigate all the things that are different from purchasing property in other places, they also made sure we were set up with all the after purchase needed contacts and information! We purchased our home completely remotely and when we came on day of closing, we had no surprises. Highly recommend!

We would highly recommend using Samantha and Dean for all of your real estate needs.

Cannot say enough great things about Samantha and Dean. We had decided to sell our condo in Copala and were looking for a real estate agent to assist. After speaking with both and getting their opinion and guidance on the market, we decided to list our property with them. Couldn't have made a better decision. Both Samantha and Dean were extremely helpful throughout the entire process. They looked at the sale from all angles and came up with a plan to best sell our property. They had the condo professionally photographed and had a fantastic video made detailing every facet of our unit. Couldn't have asked for anything better, it was very nicely done. Even after the Covid pandemic hit and basically shut down the market, both kept us informed and updated on what the market was doing during our listing period. They provided us with detailed information beforehand on how the finances would break down once we sold the unit to include paying capital gains taxes and all costs associated with the sale of the property. Once we received an offer, they provided excellent guidance on how things work in Mexico and what we could expect. We were very pleased with all of the assistance they provided. We would highly recommend using Samantha and Dean for all of your real estate needs, and if we ever decide to purchase another property in the Cabo area, we will most definitely use their services! Thank you so much to both of you for your understanding, guidance, friendship, and assistance, we couldn't have asked for anything more!

We recommend you to all our friends.

A note from our client: Samantha, I just wanted to send you and Dean a note to let you know both Joe and I thought you were true professionals and a tremendous asset to us in buying our condo in Cabo San Lucas. While we had been to Cabo many times and generally knew the area, your in-depth understanding of the properties and their values was a great assistance in the process. We were immediately impressed that you asked questions all through the process to see what we thought, how we were thinking and never with the pressure to buy. Once the offer was made, we felt you and Dean were true advocates for us in the negotiations. We like the fact that you stepped up for our best interest in negotiating the offer and worked diligently to see that everything was completed in a timely manner. We would certainly recommend you to all our friends. Thanks again!

True Professionals.

We have been so fortunate to find Samantha and Dean to represent us in the purchase of our beautiful San Jose home. They guided us through this process with attention to every detail. Their response time was immediate and they were available to us throughout the entire process providing all the knowledge and experience we needed and really appreciated. We have decided to sell a condo we own in San Jose and would never consider anyone else to represent us. We feel confident that their knowledge, energy and technical expertise will help us with tough decisions such as market timing, pricing, and presentation. We look forward to another smooth, seamless process expertly guided by Samantha and Dean!

An exceptional negotiator.

While it would be easy to provide a list of accolades on how instrumental Samantha was in assisting us in our search for a residence in Cabo San Lucas, we need to start at the beginning to give context to how helpful she and Dean, her associate was in the process.
Purchasing a property abroad was not initially a consideration in our search and we had no knowledge of Cabo San Lucas. In fact, we had not been to Mexico in over 25 years due to a disastrous trip we had to Cozumel for a quick vacation. We had only become aware of Cabo through the program, House Hunters International and by chance winning a trip to Cabo San Lucas at auction two years ago. We scheduled our trip to Cabo in March of 2019, and given we would be there for a week we decided to allow a half-day to look at property and the surrounding area during our stay to see if it was a place we wanted to live.
We looked at numerous realtor profiles and companies and focused our search on Samantha’s website. Her site provided the most comprehensive source of information while allowing us to proceed at our own leisure. The site provided information on buying, selling, property ownership in Mexico and living abroad and again without having to provide our personal contact information. After our review of numerous properties on the site, we contacted Samantha to discuss our interest and plans for traveling to Cabo. Prior to our visit, she provided feedback on our selection of properties and her recommendations as well where we settled on approximately 10 properties.
Upon meeting Samantha, our first impression was that she was personable, professional, well informed and very organized. Samantha explained the pro’s and con’s of condo vs home, ownership vs rental, the process of purchasing property in Mexico, the concept of a Fidescomiso, fees and the bank(s) who manage the trust, insurance and tax implications in buying and selling a property. Her comments were accurate and provided a high level of confidence in her guidance as we felt that Samantha was always acting in our best interest. During the course of our discussion, there was no pressure and we proceeded at our own pace.
After Samantha picked us up at the resort we were staying at, we proceeded to tour all ten properties in the course of the afternoon which we soon understood would have been impossible for us to do on our own. She had scheduled in advance with each selling realtor to have someone waiting at the property and arranged for our entry into the various properties. We narrowed our selection to two properties and both were condos in lieu of a home. Samantha began to negotiate on two properties within the Pedregal community but unfortunately, we were not able to come to terms with a seller or a developer of one of the properties. Samantha urged us to be patient, consider looking at other communities, and stressed that the right property would come available if we were willing to wait. She was correct and property became available in October that meets all of our requirements.
We were unable to return to view the property although Samantha and Dean served as our eyes and ears in viewing the property on our behalf. They confirmed the property was presented accurately on the sellers web-site. The provided recommendations for an inspector and provided oversight while the inspector conducted his observations of the unit. Samantha provided direct oversight with the Century 21 team which proved to be invaluable. She assisted in the selection of the bank to hold the Fidescomiso, selection of the title company where funds would be held by a US bank, confirmation that there were no aberrations in closing costs, and made one final inspection of the unit where Samantha and Dean found a couple of pieces of artwork having been removed from the property by the previous owner.
As we stated earlier Samantha had earned our trust and respect and to that end, we gave her our Power of Attorney to act on our behalf at closing. While the closing didn’t happen without incident it was quick and she was able to negotiate a fair payment for the artwork that was removed by the owner. All of these services were provided by Samantha without additional fee which we know was invaluable in the process.
Samantha and Dean continue to support and communicate with us in the post purchasing process and offering their insight in to property management should we decide that is an option we should want to pursue. We will decide that once we have made our first visit to the property in January of next year.
Both my wife and I highly recommend Samantha and Dean without hesitation as a trusted realtor in Cabo San Lucas. We would be happy to respond to any questions one may have about our experience in purchasing a residence in Cabo.

We appreciate their knowledge, professionalism and energy.

After living in our home for 10 years, we decided to downsize for many reasons that baby boomers understand. We knew a few realtors but wanted a fresh point of view so we interviewed several local realtors we did not know; we needed an unbiased opinion of how to determine the value of our home and the best way to market it. We chose Samantha and Dean. We appreciated their knowledge, professionalism, and energy. They led us effortlessly through the minefield of paperwork, Dean provided detailed market information and comparisons to help us make selling decisions. They helped us with every detail no matter how small.....the photos and video were of a professional quality that could not be faulted!!! The end result was the ultimate sale and closing details were handled brilliantly. We are looking forward to the next phase of Baja life, and look forward to spending time with Sam and Dean as our friends.

A Realtor you can depend on.

I live in San Jose, California and we have a property in Mexico. We decided to sell and we needed a Realtor we could depend on. I yelped and found three realtors in Cabo and so I emailed all three. Samantha at Cabo Real Estate Services was first to reach out to me within the first hour. Since we spoke, she has been on it! Exactly what we wanted, a real go-getter! I am very happy to write that we will be in contract with Samantha to sell our property.

Thank you for all your hard work!

When my parents wanted to sell their home in Cabo, I contacted three agents to speak with. Of those three, I chose Samantha because of her professionalism, ability to solve problems and very quick response. Having worked with Samantha on the quick sale of that property, I again chose her to when it came time to sell my condo. Thank you, Samantha, for all of your hard work!

Our dream of owning a home in Cabo could not have become a reality without their assistance and guidance.


My wife and I were on a short 5-day cruise to Mexico stopping at Cabo San Lucas and Puerto Vallarta about a year and a half ago. I had never been on a cruise, so this short voyage was more of an adventure that I had never experienced and we thought it would be fun since we love Mexico and especially Cabo San Lucas!
We have gone to Cabo several times with friends and have always enjoyed the people, culture, restaurants, weather, and activities. It is so inviting, laid back, and a great place to unwind and just enjoy life. Over the years, we have fantasized about owning property in Cabo but had never really thought it was in reach. However, we knew that we would always be planning trips to Cabo for vacations.
The cruise ship stopped for a day in Cabo and we decided to go and explore Cabo with no plans or excursions scheduled. We were just “winging it” and thought we would just let things happen. While Valerie and I were walking off the ship and into the streets of Cabo, we were discussing what we would do for the day. I said to my wife, Valerie, why don’t we find a realtor and see if we can’t get a flavor for the homes in the area. She said that it was a great idea since we always dreamed of having our own place in Cabo! However, she pointed out that we did not know any realtors, so how could we accomplish this on such short notice? I responded, let’s just go into the first realtor office we find and see what happens. That’s exactly what we did.
As fate would have it, we found a real estate office after walking several minutes. We met two realtors who were in the office and started a conversation about how much we love Cabo and was wondering if we could see any listings in the area. One of the realtors, Samantha (Sam) Ross, asked us how much time we had and offered to drive us around the different areas and take a look at some condos and homes. We couldn’t believe that Sam would offer to do this knowing we are just “looking” and we would be getting on our cruise ship in a few hours perhaps never to see us again. We were very excited and appreciative of Sam’s offer and off we went. What an exciting day we had! Sam drove around the areas and called some open houses for us to look at. She was professional, fun to talk with, and very informative and knowledgeable. At the end of our tour with Sam, we exchanged our contact information and went back to the ship for departure the next morning.
When we got back home, in Huntington Beach, CA, we thanked Sam again for her time and effort that she devoted to us that fateful day. Sam gave us some real estate websites and MLS links for us to review. For several months we were looking at different homes and areas within the Cabo area and started to make a list of homes we liked. Through this time and with Sam’s guidance, we were able to achieve what we believed to be our “shortlist” of homes that we thought we would be interested in. Valerie and I went through hundreds of condos and single-family residences which took approximately a year achieve. Now the time had come for us to make a trip to Cabo and take a look at our choices.
In February 2018, Valerie and I spent 4 days in Cabo. Two of those days were with Sam looking at our shortlist of residences. Through it all, Sam focused on what we wanted and how we felt about each home and concentrated on us rather than on selling a home. She was engaging in our discussions and offered candid thoughts about the properties for our benefit, not hers. Sam genuinely wanted Valerie and me to find the right home. That is what she cared about and never wavered from this foundation of trust. At the end of the trip we made an offer on a home and it was accepted.
In June 2018, we became the proud and grateful owners of a gorgeous home in Cabo San Lucas! We believe that our dream of owning a home in Cabo could not have become a reality without the assistance and guidance of our friend, Samantha Ross. Looking back on that fateful day when Valerie and I stepped into Sam’s office to the day we closed escrow on our home is an amazing story for us to share. I don’t believe it is amazing for Sam as she lives her work life and personal life in the same way with everyone she meets. In Sam’s mind, it is the only way to be because that is who she is…simply amazing!

We found the ideal person to help us find our vacation property dream home.

As fellow Canadians, we were immediately put at ease when we met Samantha and felt we had found the ideal person to help us find our vacation property dream. Numerous long-distance phone calls, emails, and Skyping to keep us informed of the process, made it less onerous for us to purchase property in a foreign country. Sam even graciously handled the signing of the final paperwork due to delays in construction completion when we were unable to be there personally for the closing. If you are looking for someone to assist with your vacation property purchase or sale needs, we would highly recommend Samantha. It was a pleasure working with her and we are now fortunate enough to have developed a friendship and always look forward to catching up over a cold beverage when visiting our Mexican “second home”.

If you are looking for a realtor to sell or buy a house in Cabo, look no further!

We had a wonderful experience working with Samantha. We couldn’t believe how responsive she was to all of our requests and questions, and she knew far more than we ever hoped to about the process of selling our home in Mexico. She came to our first meeting enthusiastic and well prepared, and every interaction I had with her after that was the same. She proposed an efficient sale process, arranged for the staging and photographs, gave me good and thoughtfully critical advice. The sale went very well and we have decided to work with her again to sell an other property. We have worked with several realtors in Cabo in the past and Samantha is by far the best in town! If you are looking for a realtor to sell or buy a house in Cabo, look no further!

Above and beyond what is typically expected of an agent.

Sam has been wonderful to work with. I trust her implicitly and respect her opinion and judgment. Her candor is truly welcome. She is not just going to push you to purchase a home, she will help you find what you want and need. I have worked with Sam in purchasing 2 properties. On both occasions, she has gone above and beyond what is typically expected of an agent. One situation required getting a power of attorney, which she handled, along with taking care of my closing when I could not personally attend. Another situation arose with finding a bargain and putting the deal together quickly to allow me to not get into a bidding war. You will be impressed, happy and pleased you chose Sam to be your realtor in Cabo. I consider Sam to be a friend, a confidant and most of all a special person to know and deal with. It is an easy choice to make - pick Cabo Sam to help find your dream home.

We could not recommend them enough for anyone looking for some peace of mind when buying or selling a home!

Words cannot express Samantha Ross! Samantha helped my husband and I sell our home in Cabo San Lucas. Samantha came to our first meeting enthusiastic, well prepared, beyond knowledgeable with the market, professional photographs, and financial strategy with the Mexican government. Samantha displays a high level of integrity and loyalty which allowed us to execute a Power of Attorney to her when our property sold since we could not attend the closing. This is something to be said! Now this is the best news yet! Not only does Samantha display the greatest professionalism and knowledge, she SOLD our house in 2 weeks close to asking price which we very happy with. With this being said, Samantha is very well regarded we listed an additional investment rental property with her which is going very well.

Thanks for your creativity and perseverance!

Samantha has proven her value for my wife and I with one Cabo home sold and another on the market. Then we’ll begin our search for a new one. Thanks for your creativity and perseverance Samantha!

I will definitely be using them as my brokers

I just spent three days with Samantha and Dean and although I haven't decided on a property yet I could not feel more comfortable with their guidance. They took me under their wing and treated me like family. When the right property pops up I will definitely be using them as my brokers!
