SOLOMONS NEW MENU: Check out how their new launch tops the town

Joining Bryan Solomon at his restaurant in Cabo San Lucas, Solomon’s Landing, Nick Fong wants to find out more about their relaunch and their new menu.  He starts by stating that Solomon’s Landing is located on the marina, which is a landmark there.  Then, he goes on to say that they have relaunched in October of 2020.  He reveals how Solomons new menu will get you exciting about coming to Cabo to experience it for yourself.

After being invited to bring his family to eat there, Nick Fong sits at a table with Brian Solomon to get the exciting details.  In the video, you can see just how beautifully the cuisine there is prepared.  Continue reading to get to know Bryan Solomon and to uncover the great news about Solomons new menu.

Bryan Solomon reveals Solomons new menu

To begin, Bryan Solomon introduces himself.  He explains how he arrived in Cabo back in 1994 and then opened Solomon’s Landing in 1995.  Previously, he lived in the San Fernando Valley in California.  After starting Solomon’s Landing on the marina, it quickly became a landmark in Cabo San Lucas.

To announce Solomons new menu, Bryan decided to have a “new menu” party at the restaurant.  At this party, he introduced his three new certified chefs that are now on his staff.  And if that isn’t impressive, two of those chefs are “Cordon Blue” trained.

Bryan goes into detail about his menu.  He starts by telling Nick about how wonderful his plate will be.  Nick ordered the rib-eye steak.  The meat is ordered fresh, not frozen, and is cut in their kitchen.  Then, Bryan tells about one of his favorite items on the menu – the rib.  It’s served with a reduction sauce that takes it to a new level in flavor.  Next is the rack of lamb, which he mentions while showing a platter carried to a table.  It looks truly delicious.

After Bryan mentions plate after plate, from risotto dishes to vegetarian dishes, he tells Nick just how awesome Solomons new menu really is.  You can tell that a lot of heart went into each recipe and a lot of heart goes into preparing each dish, just for you.  Bryan promises that you won’t be disappointed.

Bryan’s heart-felt staff

After letting go a portion of his staff, Bryan now has now cemented a staff full of heart and passion.  Interestingly, his three new chefs are very supportive and they all work together to make Solomon’s Landing greater than ever before.  Everyone who works there is very inspiring.  They all share and support one another.

Bryan tells Nick that 2020 has been his most innovative year yet.  Regarding flavors, textures, plating presentations, and prices, everything at Solomon’s Landing has been hit out of the ballpark.  In fact, Bryan gives Nick a challenge.  He tells Nick to go find a better meal in Cabo.  After that, Nick points to you, the viewer, and challenges anyone to find a better meal in Cabo.  The point is this:  You won’t be able to, now that you can eat from Solomons new menu prepared by his precious chefs and staff.

Wine pairing at Solomon’s Landing

Solomon’s Landing selects premium wines with their host sommelier, which is a wine steward – a trained and knowledgeable wine professional.  To elaborate, a sommelier normally works in gourmet restaurants and specializes in all facets of wine, wine service standards, and wine pairing with various cuisines.  Then, Bryan Solomon, the owner, works directly with the host sommelier to determine the best wine pairings for each dish.

Cash-out refinancing in Cabo through Global Mortgage are now available

Joined by Alex Koper with Global Mortgage, Nick Fong with Ronival Real Estate presents how to do cash-out refinancing in Cabo.  He starts by presenting a question, which he’s asked regularly.  Nick has many clients who own their home in Cabo, debt-free.  They frequently ask if there is a way to get cash from equity in their Cabo homes.  So Nick asks Alex if that can be done through a “cash out” refinance loan.

To begin his answer, Alex Koper states that this is a fairly common question from those in Cabo.  Also, he mentions that Global Mortgage has been in Cabo for just under three years, starting in 2018.  Another interesting point mentioned by Alex is that they “hit their stride” since the second half of 2019.  Since there haven’t been good home-finance options in Mexico for foreigners like those from the United States and Canada, Global Mortgage decided to jump in to assist.  Read on to uncover refinancing in Cabo.

Global Mortgage refinancing in Cabo

When talking about how Global Mortgage helps homeowners with their refinancing in Cabo, Alex Koper explains the many reasons for it.  But first, he describes how people used to get Money into Mexico to purchase their homes in the past.  For example, they pulled 401K loans, refinanced their homes in the US or Canada, and sometimes even personal loans.  They would move those funds to Mexico to make the home purchase.  And they did that because there just weren’t enough options available at the time.

Many reasons for refinancing in Cabo

Getting liquidity from the value of your home equity, refinancing, offers many solutions to home owners in Cabo.  First, they may be looking to buy another property in Cabo.  That is a very popular option in Cabo due to the high rental property income.  But during these times of uncertainty due to COVID-19, there are new reasons to refinance in Cabo.  The equity in their Cabo home can now serve as a financial resource when other funds have been lost due to economic reasons.

Stating another great reason for refinancing in Cabo, Alex Koper discusses diversification.  During these uncertain times, people are pulling money out of the markets and need another place to put it.  Purchasing property in Cabo provides that diversification investors look for.  Then, they can pull cash from their equity using the services of Global Mortgage.

Nick Fong jumps in to say that many of his clients are investors.  They purchase their homes in Cabo to rent them using the vacation rental services of Property Management by Ronival.  He explains that after financing a home in Cabo, the rental income alone can pay for the home.  On top of that, many rental property home owners in Cabo are cash-flow positive.  That means they make an income on top of paying for their home using rental income.

How Global Mortgage operates

As Alex Koper explains in the video, Global Mortgage operates in US Dollars for their mortgages.  Also, mortgages are services in US Dollars.  Along with being in Cabo, which is their headquarters, Global Mortgage has offices in California, Texas, and Illinois.  It’s exciting to see great mortgage options arrive in Cabo, one of the best vacation destinations in the world.

Presenting Rancho La Pastora in Todos Santos: Discover this oceanfront home

Welcome to Rancho La Pastora in Todos Santos, presented in the video by Nick Fong of Ronival Real Estate.  As he mentions, many of their clients ask them some common questions about beach homes in Cabo.  For example, they ask “what does oceanfront cost?”  Also, they ask what the difference is with semi-oceanfront homes.  Therefore, Nick decided to drive up to Todos Santos to meet with his agent there: Dan Binetti.  Together, they present Rancho La Pastora, an amazing example of an oceanfront home in Baja.  Read more to uncover the exquisite details about this wonderful home for sale.

Meeting on the rear terrace of Rancho La Pastora

As Nick Fong and Dan Binetti meet, Dan mentions how he’s lived in Todos Santos since 2004.  And, he’s been working full time in real estate that entire time.  He calls Rancho La Pastora very special and very unique.  Then, he goes on to reveal all the great details about this oceanfront home in Todos Santos.

Rancho La Pastora revealed

Built in 1974, Rancho La Pastora has been owned by the current property owners since 2008.  In the video, some original photos are shown so you can see how it used to look.  Interestingly, this oceanfront home was the first one built in the area. And being the first there, it was “grandfathered in” as rules fell into place after other homes were built.  That means, it is set further out, closer to the ocean than the current building restrictions allow.

Since 2008, the home has been fully remodeled and expanded.  As Dan states, they did everything correctly.  From “Pebble Tec” in the pool to over 7000 square feet of travertine time, this home has been renewed.  There are three bedrooms and four-and-a-half bathrooms.

The gazebo is the closest structure to the beach.  As a result, any new construction can be built out to the line of the gazebo.  What a great way to take advantage of being so close to the ocean.

Great kitchen layout

Since the current owner has a background in bars and restaurants, the kitchen is well made.  In fact, the owner and his family have owned a number of restaurants.  As such, the kitchen design was very well thought out.  For example, it has a bar area with an ice maker and a sink.  Also, the freezer is in the pantry, which means the home has a very large refrigerator.

The property

Sitting on just under 10,000 square meters, or two-and-a-half acres, Rancho La Pastora has about 100 meters, or 300 feet of oceanfront property.  Dan says that is very rare indeed.  And since the home only takes up 30% of the land, there are many opportunities for expansion.

Discover Todos Santos

Established back in 1723 by Father Jaime Bravo, Todos Santos endured eras of both great wealth and famine.  Fortunately, the farm land there produces abundantly.  Also, tourism there is strong and growing.  In addition, Todos Santos is a haven for music, art, and film festivals along with being a world-renowned destination for eco-tourism, like the ever-popular exotic bird watching.  That means, there’s never been a better time to visit Todos Santos and check out real estate options.

Todos Santos is just north of Cabo San Lucas on the Pacific Side of Los Cabos.  To learn more, be sure to check out Todos Santos Mango Festival: Celebrate one of the most tasty fruits in Mexico!

El Dia de los Muertos: Uncover this celebrated Mexican tradition

Nick Fong joins his wife and business partner Rocio Montaño along with their two kids to celebrate El Dia de los Muertos with the Ronival Property Management team at El Huerto.  In the video, Rocio speaks about the importance and significance of El Dia de los Muertos, or The Day of the Dead.  Read more to uncover what this Mexican tradition is all about and learn a little about El Huerto Farm to Table restaurant in Cabo.

What does this Mexican celebration entail?

Rocio shares that El Dia de los Muertos is a day that involves relatives, friends, and important people who have departed this world before us.  She says that people who celebrate this tradition in Mexico believe that these loved ones who have passed come to visit during this event.  In addition, she calls this a beautiful gathering to share their life and the beautiful times they shared together.

El Dia de los Muertos celebration

Celebrated on November first and second every year, there is a different significance for each of these two days.  On November first, children who have passed are remembered.  Rocio says that these children come back as little angels to celebrate this day with the living.  November second is when the adults who have passed show up for the festivities.

The center piece of this celebration is an altar, referred to the person that it is dedicated.  Those who attend this celebration come dressed up in special clothes and makeup called a Catrina, which is one of the strongest and most recognizable parts of this celebration.

Setting & ceremony of El Dia de los Muertos

In the video, the setting and the celebration is shown.  Candles are used along with photos of the deceased and pieces of art that represent El Dia de los Muertos.  Then, details about the altar and how it represents levels that are passed through by the spirits of the those who have passed are described.

Food and drink is offered to the spirits of the dead.  It is believed that the offered food and drink looses its flavor after these spirits have consumed it.  After that, other elements like skulls made from sugar and salts are placed at the altar with special significance.  Be sure to watch the video to see many of the small, yet significant elements that go into this traditional event.

Searching for a new home in Cabo! See episode one from Find Mexico Houses

You’re in for a treat as two special guests join Nick Fong of Ronival Real Estate in this latest video.  His guests are Miles and Alisha Pruitt, and they may be looking to buy another new home in Cabo.  They are a real blast-from-the-past, as they previously purchased a new home in Cabo while being filmed on Mexico Life Season four with Nick Fong himself.  They had spent many days looking at properties until Miles and Alisha found their perfect home.  Now, they’ve called Nick again to buy another.  Great news indeed!  Read on to see what they’re looking for!

Staying in Cabo on a more permanent basis

Miles and Alisha Pruitt join Nick Fong on Zoom, as you’ll see in the video, and they tell Nick that they’ve decided to stay in Cabo on a more permanent basis.  To them, that means being in Cabo about 75% of the time.  That means, they must really love it there!

Although Miles and Alisha love their home in Cabo, they are ready for an upgrade.  To be specific, they want a larger pool and they want to be closer to the ocean.  For their new home in Cabo, they are looking for something under $1M with a bigger kitchen and they like Cabo Bello.  In the video, they tell Nick they they will be arriving in Cabo in a week.  That will be their first post-COVID trip to Cabo, and they’re very excited to come back.

Finding a new home in Cabo

After his conversation with Miles and Alisha, Nick is now ready to start looking for a new home in Cabo that will meet their needs.  He’s on a mission to find a house with three bedrooms minimum.  Nick thinks he has some great options for them.

Villa Lucia

As property number one, Nick shows us Villa Lucia in Cabo Bello.  It has quite an amazing front door that is more than big enough for Miles – he’s a big guy.  And the best thing about this house:  Views of the Arch of Cabo San Lucas.  This home is fully furnished, and it’s truly beautiful inside and out!

Casa Playa Blanca

Located in the Cabo Corridor, which is between Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo, Casa Playa Blanca is “almost” on the beach.  And, it has what Miles and Alisha are looking for.  Also fully furnished, you can see just how beautiful this home in Cabo really is.  Nick makes sure you can see everything inside and out – what a HUGE kitchen!

Cabo Bello – the “jewel of the Cabo Corridor”

Cabo Bello, one of the original master-planned communities in Cabo, is a private seaside community that is gated and guarded 24 hours per day.  And, it sits near a secluded swimming cove along the beautiful Sea of Cortez.  To keep this community awesome, many of the homes are beautifully updated or are in the process of being remodeled, which shows the value of this great location.

The private swimming cove of Cabo Bello is very special.  It is where whales can be seen daily during winter and early spring.  Also, the cove features a semi-private beach with some of the best snorkeling in Cabo.
