Herschel Alan Weisfeld was born March 14, 1961, in McAllen, Texas along the southern border just across the Rio Grande River from Reynosa, Mexico, and graduated from public school in 1979.  While in high school he studied real estate and received his Texas Real Estate salesman’s license as soon as he turned 18 and his Real estate broker’s license at the age of 23.  He received a Bachelor’s degree in Business Management with a concentration in accounting from Tulane University in New Orleans in 1983.

He moved to Dallas Texas in the spring of 1984 where he built a self-directed real estate investment company where he still owns and manages a diverse portfolio of commercial real estate rental properties.  

He came out to his family in the fall of 1984 and today is single and breeds the national dog of Mexico, of which he has 8, and shares these fine miniature hairless Xoloitzcuintli who is just as passionate about the breed as was Freda Khalo and Diego Rivera who brought attention to this 3500-year-old breed that the Aztecs held in high esteem.

He also spent decades engaged in the cultural, political, and civic communities by giving of both his time and resources of which the list is endless.  He has received countless awards and recognitions from art, and historic preservation to homelessness sitting on many boards, commissions, and task forces both in the US and Mexico.

 In 2003 while vacationing in Puerto Vallarta Mexico he bought a small home on a mountainside overlooking the romantic zone and assembled three additional adjoining properties where he designed and built Hacienda Herchito which includes six fully furnished rental apartments along with his private residence which was designed as a boutique hotel but occupied as his private home.  These acquisitions were astute moves before the word got out about PV and the extensive condo explosion took place.

Today Herschel is once again working on a new construction project which is an assemblage of six properties on a higher mountaintop that will be a home with gardens unlike anything that can be found in the romantic zone today so that his dogs will have plenty of room to roam and is known as La Casa Nuevo de La Familia de Yoli y Temo.
