The History of PARKSTRONG
Bruce Parkman, the founding partner, first visited San Felipe, Baja California, Mexico in 1987. He immediately saw the potential benefits of land ownership. Searching for ways to purchase land on the beautiful Sea of Cortez was a challenging experience. Not until after the advent of NAFTA and the change in the Mexican Laws of Foreign Investment occurred in December 1993 was there a more assured way to own property in Mexico. A visionary, Bruce formed (under the new laws) the first legal non-Mexican owned Real Estate Company in San Felipe. Subsequently researching and finding a beautiful property on the Sea of Cortez in 1995, the birth of PARKSTRONG came about. Recognizing the need for straightforward direction for land ownership, the Company was formed with the intent of making the purchase of land through a Fideicomiso a reality and a more pleasant, safe, and secure experience for non-nationals.
In 2000, Randy & Linda Bolster joined Bruce & Karen Parkman as Partners in PARKSTRONG U.S.A. LLC completing the team of professionals assembled to take this new and exciting company to its potential. Bruce and Karen live on site managing the PARKSTRONG Mexico operations. Randy (an Electrical Engineer, formerly with Intel and Alcatel) and Linda (a Non-Profit Director) run the day-to-day operations of PARKSTRONG USA in Spokane, WA. The Partners are dedicated to making Playa de Oro's land the safest possible ownership and have achieved this through the purchase of Title Insurance on the entire subdivision! Going even one step further, they will also provide every lot owner a title insurance policy issued through First American Title Insurance Company. Since 1996 PARKSTRONG has been in the subdivision process, making sure every "I" was dotted and every "T" was crossed. With the sub-division now completed and approved, the result is the new and exciting Resort and Retirement Community of PLAYA DE ORO nestled on the shore of the beautiful Sea of Cortez.
Why San Felipe?
San Felipe is poised on the pinnacle of a development and tourism explosion. Previously a fishing village with weekend tourism and home to a handful of enterprising Americans, it is now gearing up to be the tourist destination of choice. San Felipe, perched on the northwestern shore of the beautiful Sea of Cortez, lays claim to miles and miles of pristine white sand beaches, and has the majestic San Pedro Martyr Mountains to its back. The government's commitment to expand the highway, enlarge the Marina (part of the Nautical Staircase Project) and improve the airport will further entice tourists to its pristine shores. Already an ecological biosphere, the Sea of Cortez is destined to become a worldwide tourism attraction, offering inimitable sea-life for observation and interaction. The Sea of Cortez is the largest protected whale sanctuary in the World and the mouth of the sea is patrolled and protected by Mexican, USA, and Green Peace Ships. San Felipe, only 120 miles south of the U.S. border, is an easy drive. Playa de Oro provides a front row seat to what has been called, "the aquarium of the World."
A new trauma center has opened in San Felipe complete with state-of-the-art diagnostic capabilities including laboratory, surgical wing, and full-care facilities. Well staffed and private insurance approved, Medicare should approve it also within the year. Ambulance and airlift still are available for those wishing or needing immediate U.S. medical care. Combine this with excellent pharmaceutical prices, and retirement income goes a long ways.
The foresight of PARKSTRONG in developing their land into an environmentally-friendly subdivision, making it a reasonable and affordable investment, and ensuring a safe and secure community puts Playa de Oro and San Felipe on the charts for venture opportunity. The population of Southern California, Phoenix & Southern Arizona, as well as the border towns of Mexicali and Tijuana, is exploding. More people are seeking rest and relaxation and finding it on the tranquil Sea of Cortez. As an investment, great vacation haven, or an affordable retirement alternative, Playa de Oro is the place to be!
