As a father of two wonderful children and a husband to a supportive, loving, beautiful wife, I am beyond blessed. I love spending time with my family whether a day at the park, eating dinner in the Keys or just sitting on the floor playing with Lego’s. No matter what kind of day it’s been, it is all erased when I walk thru my doors and see my family. I couldn’t ask for more.
I am truly passionate about real estate and the amazing opportunities it has afforded my family. I have been touched by the countless lives I have been able to assist throughout my years of business. Whether helping a newlywed couple purchase their first home, assist a family expand their stores or lease a space to a national corpoeration, I realize that this business is more than closing transactions. It’s about adding value to every asset, opportunity and relationship I touch while building long-term connections.
Raised in Miami, I have spent over 20 years getting to know the in’s and out’s of one of America’s greatest cities. In 2004, at the age of 21, while attending Florida International University, I began my professional career by opening a transportation brokerage firm in Miami, FL arranging continental shipping for companies such as Wal-mart, Home Depot, Starkist Tuna, Dimara Produce and more. After a year of building this business, I saw a great opportunity and sold the business in 2005 to a national corporation for a modest profit. With the booming market in full swing in South Florida, my Father-in-law and myself began looking to invest and flip residential properties.
I immediately immersed myself in the business, wanting to learn everything I could. However, I quickly realized I was on the outside looking in as an investor and in 2006 became a licensed realtor in the state of Florida. I immediately joined the Keyes Company, one of the oldest and largest real estate firms in the country. I quickly established myself as an expert in the community and closed over $3,000,000 my first year of active real estate. I received the honors of Rookie of the Year in 2006 and was a rising star within the company.
During this time, I began representing customers in commercial transactions signing leases with franchisees for Subway, Edible Arrangement and Dickies BBQ to name a few. In 2008, I was selected by my manager for the Cadre Series, a prestigious one year training which would eventually lead to my placement to run my own office within the company. During this same time, I was offered a Commercial Real Estate Leasing position at Horizon Properties to take over a massive portfolio of commercial real estate.
Seeing a great opportunity, I accepted the position and took over a leasing portfolio consisting of over 1 million square feet of shopping center retail space within Publix and Sedano’s shopping centers and just over 500,0000 square feet of office/industrial space. Over the next two years, I went on to work with Family Dollar, Subway, Sedano’s, Pet Supermarket, AT&T and Blue Cross Blue Shield just to name a few. I also assisted investors in acquisitions and depositions of raw land, build to suit, NNN lease buildings and worked with local businesses as a Tenant Representative.
I had a strong desire to also incorporate my years of residential knowledge and experience, so in 2010 stepped down from Horizon Properties and joined Real Estate Sales Force as the Commercial Real Estate Director, where I quickly continued to build my relationships with national corporations. I also obtained my broker’s license and became the office manager for the new Real Estate Sales Force Kendall office continuing right off in the residential market.
With years of successful residential and commercial real estate experience and a lifetime love of Miami, I am prepared with the knowledge and experience it takes to assist you in all your real estate needs. I conduct my my business with a simple philosophy, “Do unto others as you would have them do to you, treat every customer with the respect, honesty and loyalty they deserve and you will build a lifetime of wonderful relationships.”
