Mexico is home to some very talented and creative artisans who turn wood, bamboo, stone, rattan and other natural materials into beautifully crafted furnishings to fit your individual style, taste, budget and more importantly: measurements.

Start out with some basic ideas of style, design and materials. Photocopy or tag pages from home decorating magazines and interior design books so you have an idea of your aesthetic and can decide what material to use. Once you have a more concrete idea, a simple room layout or sketch will suffice; be sure to take accurate measurements so you know how much However, you can have just about anything space you have to work with. You can fill built to fit and probably at a fraction of what the room with representations of each these similar pieces would cost you in a piece of furnishing; it doesn’t have to be fancy home decorating store. Of course, it too detailed, just to give you an idea of how helps to have a bit of imagination and the your furniture will fit together and get you ability to visualize the piece, its design and closer to the ideal size and location of each materials and more importantly where and piece. You can either work independently how it will fit in with your dÊcor. The best or with a home decorating professional in way to begin conjuring up your new table, order to come up with a plan that fits your bed frame, entertainment center, cabinetry, style and interior space. etc. is to start looking through decorating magazines, catalogs and on even the Using your room basic layout, you can internet as a source of inspiration. start to think about materials for each piece; wood, bamboo, upholstered, rattan,

wicker, iron, leather, glass, stone … the list goes only as far as your imagination and decorating aesthetic. You can choose to furnish in sets or bring together signature pieces that create an eclectic funky mix. In other words, you can get creative when the pieces are made to order. Modern, contemporary, rustic, colonial or coastal there are craftsman who can create a look that represents your individual style and taste. Once you’ve decided on materials and have a basic sketch and design, the

there are typically a plethora of shops, boutiques and galleries that showcase their custom built furnishings. Most work directly with private clients or their decorators to create unique heirloom pieces or furnish an entire home. You will find that styles and cost vary, depending on the artist’s recognition (both nationally and in some cases abroad), experience, materials, etc. It’s best to shop around extensively before deciding on with whom to work with. Also, whoever it is should share a similar vision

have a bit of patience with any custom built piece, whether constructed here or elsewhere. Hand crafted furniture making is an unhurried process that no matter the material cannot be built as quickly or accurately as machine-fabricated products. However, hand crafted pieces are typically of higher quality and as each is a unique creation, its imperfections often become part of its charm.

A FEW THINGS TO CONSIDER BEFORE BUILDING CUSTOM Take accurate measurements! There’s nothing more disheartening than bringing home a beautiful new piece of furniture only to find that it’s too big or too small for the space. Also make sure to measure hallways or staircases where the piece will have to fit through in order to arrive at your front door. Know that no one can be expected to get


inside your head. The closer you can get to a detailed drawing and design, the more akin your finished piece will be made. Even so, each person’s interpretation of the same drawing will be slightly different and the piece may not come out exactly the way you envision. Allow some room for creative interpretation; it will spare you frustrations and in the end you will have a beautifully furnished home that can’t be bought in any store.

Consider a Buyer’s Agent By Linda Neil

real estate law

Dual Agency Dual agency arises when a real estate broker or salesperson represents adverse parties (e.g., a buyer and seller) in the same transaction.



real esTaTe law

realestate In real estate the party that represents a buyer or a seller in the purchase or sale of a property, is called an agent. In Mexico, as in other countries of the world, the agent has a duty to treat his principal in an ethical and professional manner. The Mercantile Code, Articles 273 to 308 outline the obligations involved in representing the interests of the client. Both law and custom make it very difficult for the conscientious agent to represent BOTH buyer and seller since the buyer wants to buy the property for the lowest price possible and the seller is looking for the greatest amount of money he can get for his property.

has the obligation to counsel his seller as to fair and reasonable selling price, as to the importance of disclosure of defects in the property, as well as to offer the property to the widest audience possible. The purpose of this, of course, is to obtain the highest price possible for the property.

With this in mind, how can the conscientious agent honestly represent both parties? Almost anyone will agree; there is a conflict of interest when anyone tries to fairly represent both sides of a transaction.

In all cases, the agent must treat all parties with honesty and fairness.

No matter how much the agent needs or wants the money that will come from a FULL commission, it is better to call in a colleague to represent one side or the other. That way both share in the commission, both principals are honestly and fairly served and the agent will have clients who will recommend his or her services to other friends and acquaintances. It ends up being win-win for everyone!

To reinforce the relationship with buyer or seller clients it is important to understand and discuss this with the client; outline the responsibilities of the buyer’s agent, the obligations of the seller’s agent and how to handle the important issues such as money where price is being negotiated. A confirmation of the relationship should be signed with the buyer or seller client. Not only does this confirm the essentials of the fiduciary relationship, but also the clients, knowing that an agent is working EXCLUSIVELY for them, and not the other side, will be much more likely to remain loyal to his/her agent. And what are the obligations and responsibilities? Simply put, the SELLER’S AGENT


The BUYER’S AGENT should assist the client in locating the best property possible which will meet buyer’s requirements. Once located, the property should be inspected as to suitability for the purpose intended and the most attractive price and terms possible negotiated for the acquisition of the property.
