Mexico: More Than a Vacation

Mexico: More Than a Vacation

Close your eyes. Breathe in, and exhale. Now reach back in your memories, and recall the warmth of the sun on your skin, the feeling of the ocean breeze on your face, and the smell of tropical vegetation all around you. Are you dreaming of paradise yet?

At Zisla, we want you to do more than dream. We want to help you achieve what you’ve always thought impossible: ditching your 9-to-5, leaving winters behind, and living in a gorgeous tropical climate. How? By earning income through smart and affordable rental property investments!

At Zisla, we’re both problem solvers and dream enablers. We believe that everyone deserves a shot at living in paradise, and we’re committed to turning your vision into a reality.

Our History

The idea behind Zisla all started with a chance encounter.

While in her office one day, Zisla’s founder and president, Shaheen Lambert, heard someone speaking Spanish. She quickly identified the dialect as having been spoken by someone from Mexico. Curious, she ventured out of her quiet office to find the owner of the voice.

It belonged to a colleague that had just travelled from Mexico City. That person was in search of a Canadian representative for their newest real estate project in Cancun. Shaheen ended up taking on the project, was immediately hooked, and never looked back.

What originally started as a single transaction has now blossomed to well over 100 real estate projects, thanks in no small part to the contributions of Zisla CEO Yannick Cloutier and VP of Marketing David Favreau.

Ultimately, Zisla was founded with a simple goal in mind: to help people realize that owning property in Mexico was not an impossible dream. Through their collective love of Mexico and real estate knowledge, the Zisla team has already helped hundreds of clients turn their tropical dreams into a tangible reality.

Our History
Overcoming Mental Hurdles

Overcoming Mental Hurdles

Shaheen, Yannick and David had all heard similar things from friends and clients in the past, expressions like “You’re so lucky you live in Mexico,” or questions such as “Why would you ever come back?” as if it was a crazy, unrealizable dream.

The truth is, owning and investing in property in Mexico is not impossible. In fact, it can be quite profitable! Since Zisla was founded, the team has made it their shared goal to help convince people that buying property in Mexico isn’t an impossibility reserved for others, but instead something anyone could achieve!

Zisla is proud to have built a community of like-minded people who are tired of hearing that it can’t be done, or that it’s too complicated. By sharing important knowledge through our blogs and webinars, as well as by providing access to the largest inventory of new building projects in Mexico, we don’t just explain to our clients how it can be done, but how it can be done right!

Shaheen loves Mexico, its people, and its culture. Having spent much of the last ten years travelling to the country and exploring all it has to offer, she can often be found at the beach working on her laptop. When she’s not on her computer she’s on her bicycle moving from project to project helping clients, perhaps enjoying a few too many tacos in between!

Shaheen's professional experience includes a solid background in international real estate, and she continues to expand and consolidate her knowledge to this day. She has earned multiple recent accreditations including the Global Property Specialist certification from Keller Williams and the Certified International Property Specialist title, making her an expert resource in the field of international real estate.

Yannick Cloutier

Yannick Cloutier

Chief Executive Officer

Yannick is our beloved CEO. His father owned and operated an import/export company in the 1970s, and as a result Yannick has been involved in the Mexican business community from a young age. He knows how to close deals in the country, and nothing gives him more pleasure than negotiating the best possible deals for our clients.

Yannick is a well-rounded individual that brings a wealth of experience to the table. With a successful track record of over 400 North American commercial real estate transactions under his belt, Yannick has played a crucial role in deals worth over $600 million dollars during his tenure. On top of his extensive sales experience, Yannick is also a developer on a number of projects, including ones involving condo towers, apartment buildings, and townhouses.

David Favreau

David Favreau

Vice President, Marketing

We all have a soft spot for our VP of marketing. Not only does he have a huge brain, he also has an amazing way of making everything both fun and interesting. When he isn't bringing the most recent updates and highest-quality projects to our community, you’ll find him outdoors, indulging his undeniable love for nature.

But don’t be fooled by his youthful appearance - David is a marketing powerhouse in his own right. He has an impressive track record and was specifically brought on board to help Zisla outperform the competition in both the customer service and marketing outreach arenas.

Owning a property in Mexico has always been a dream of mine. Zisla’s friendly team assisted me with all the services and the information that I needed to go through the acquisition of my condo in Mexico. Shaheen was always available for me and she keeps in touch to see how things are going with my new property. I recommend Zisla to any potential foreign buyers that wants to avoid the possible pains of buying overseas.
