  Greg Gunter

As an agent with Coldwell Banker Previews—focusing on the premier residential market—Greg offers a unique perspective to his clients, having designed and built his own $2.2 million USD luxury home in the United States. His award-winning home—named Colorado Home of the Year by Colorado Homes & Gardens magazine—was featured in the Wall St. Journal and The Denver Post, and boasted materials gathered from around the globe: Italy, France, Spain, England, and Belgium.

For the Mexican National or expat client exploring home ownership in San Miguel de Allende, Greg offers a fresh wealth of personal insight. After an initial visit to San Miguel in 2001, he bought land here in 2006 and can share his insight into designing & building a new Spanish Colonial style home in San Miguel, as well as extensive business, legal, and lifestyle insights crucial to enjoying your time in San Miguel.

With nearly forty years experience in real estate—he began as a homebuilder in 1974—Greg split his professional career between residential and commercial development. An architect with an M.B.A. from the University of Colorado and a small, infill developer in California, he invested a quarter of a century in commercial retail real estate—including retail brokerage—and was part of the development team responsible for landmark U.S. retail projects like the $625 million USD Academy Awards’ venue, Hollywood & Highland. Greg later cofounded a retail development services firm involved with the development of internationally renowned U.S. shopping meccas from The Forum Shops in Las Vegas to Houston Galleria, housing luxury tenants like Tiffany & Co., Louis Vuitton, Hermes, Gucci and other premier brands.

An active member of the community, Greg pens a social column for our local bilingual newspaper, Atención—a fund-raiser for the bilingual library—and has served as both volunteer and board member with numerous local charities. He writes thriller novels in his spare time, and promises visitors an equally thrilling tour of this UNESCO World Heritage Site we call home: San Miguel de Allende.
