Mexico City is a cosmopolitan city, a great, prosperous and dynamic place to start or develop your business. Mexico’s capital benefits from its conveniet location – connecting Latin American countries with the United States. Today, it is also known as one of the most important financial hubs in the Americas, as well as a center of political, economic and social life in Mexico. With this huge business powerbase, it’s bound to become one of the most important cities in the world.

I am currently working as Sales Director in Dominion Corporate Housing and specialize mainly in sales strategies, commercial process design, marketing campaigns, customer service and business development.

What is special about the apartments from Dominion Corporate Housing and which one is your preferred location?

Our apartments are known for their unique style, spacious size, amenities and prime locations. On top of that, our customers value that we are pet-friendly. All apartments feature a kitchen, living room, dining room, washer, dryer and separate bedrooms. Our properties are located in the most exclusive areas of the city, surrounded by restaurants, bars, shops, malls, parks and entertainment. My preferred location is Casa Malí by Dominion, which is ideally situated across the street from the beautiful Parque México in La Condesa, Mexico City’s trendiest cultural and gastronomic district.
