Charles Thomas

Charles Thomas has been described as an “advocate for his clients” for good reason - he brings to every interaction a sincere desire to serve the needs of his clients. Of equal importance, however, is his extensive background in leadership, customer service, audit, marketing and negotiations, all of which are ideally suited to the intricate process of purchasing or selling a home in a foreign country. In addition, having lived in San Miguel since 2004 has provided him with unique insight into the evolving real estate market.

Charles’ career history includes 20+ years in banking, finance and operations. He eventually left his position as a Vice President of a multi-national financial institution and took early retirement. Shortly thereafter he moved from the San Francisco Bay Area to San Miguel de Allende, and has never looked back.

When Charles is not working with clients he donates his time to support local charitable organizations, which provide housing for the poor in rural communities and other services for the disadvantaged. He is also a member of AMPI, the local professional real estate organization.

In addition to home design, his hobbies include gardening, cooking, travel and writing.


Charles possesses is his ability to pick properties that are best suited to specifications for style.
Charles worked tirelessly to complete the process with and for us, never leaving anything to worry about.
I wish to thank Charles Thomas publicly for his pleasant and highly competent care of the real estate
We plan to work with Charles and Realty San Miguel again in the future. Thanks!
Charles remained vigilant and kept us apprised throughout the entire process until closing.
Charles went out of his way to make sure I understood the process every step of the way.
Having known Charles since before he started working in real estate we knew he was a smart, honest, and fun person. When we decided to look for a second home in San Miguel it was not hard to start with Charles and San Miguel Realty. Buying or selling a house is typically very high on the stress scale. We were impressed with his knowledge of the ins and outs of real estate. He navigated us through the process easily and quickly. He was clear and complete in describing all the important details and the paperwork related to buying property in Mexico. He also had a good sense of what things were worth and what type of offers we should make. There were no snags. We would certainly highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell a property in San Miguel.
"We could not be more pleased with Charles Thomas’ services as our realtor. From the day he came to talk with us and see our home until he last paper was signed he couldn’t have done anything better. As we owned our house for 17 years, we had no idea how much to ask for it. He gave us what we considered a fair price and we went with it. Two days after it was put online, two people came to see it and we had two full price offers! He guided us through every step and as we had no previous experience selling real estate in Mexico, we needed it. He also went above and beyond, giving us the name of a moving company, the name of a driver who could take us and our dog to the U.S., and a veterinarian for a health certificate for the dog. We have sold four houses in the U.S. and never had such complete (and rapid) experience. Charles, we appreciate your help and guidance."
