Why did a Canadian group decide to join forces in Mexico?
Zisla’s CEO Shaheen Lambert moved to Cancun 12 years ago. Being a real estate broker in Canada, she started to get really curious about the real estate market in the region of the Riviera Maya. After a few years of gathering information on the market, she decided to try the investment herself by buying two properties. She quickly understood that the process was fairly easy when having the right information. But that was the issue at the time. The right information was far from being common knowledge. Real estate professionals in Mexico were not aware of the specific requirements for a foreigner to invest in the country.
She quickly experienced first-hand the value of her investment with both the returns from short-term rentals and the value of her properties skyrocketing to the roof. She wanted to let her entourage know and help them do the same. 8 years ago, Shaheen started representing international buyers that were referred to her. The word quickly went around that she was the solution to invest in such a profitable market. Within 4 years, she had sold more than 250 units in Cancun, Playa del Carmen and Tulum.
Shaheen’s vision was bigger than just doing real estate transactions under her name. That’s when she decided to partner with today’s Zisla cofounders. In January 2019, Zisla was officially in the making.
Problems Zisla Solves

Where to invest in Mexico?
For those looking for the best bang for their buck, look no further than Tulum. Tulum, a small town located on the Caribbean coast of Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula, has seen a surge in real estate development in recent years. Zisla Real Estate is at the forefront of this growth, offering a range of services to both domestic and international buyers and sellers.
Over the last 4 years, Tulum house prices have risen by an average of 78%. On top of this incredible rise in value, most properties offer an 8-15% yearly return on investment for short-term rentals. The team at Zisla Real Estate has a deep understanding of the local market and is well equipped to guide international buyers through the process of buying property in Tulum. This includes helping buyers find the right property, negotiating the purchase price, and navigating the legal and financial aspects of the transaction.
For instance, the average price per square metre sold in Tulum in 2022 was 2,782.08 USD. Zisla’s average was about 1,350 USD per square metre. In a market where about 90% of buyers are investors, Zisla makes sure to sell the properties that have the best potential return over the years. They back their investment recommendations on aggregated revenue data gathered from Airbnb and VRBO. The numbers they give to their clients are a realistic projection of what they can expect from their investment. Their last good shot of 2022 was selling two 5-bedroom villas priced at 392,000 USD each. The current projected ROI for each villa is at 26% net yearly.
