What I Do

I’ve been a licensed Miami Realtor since 2006 and serve as a Vice President at EWM Realty International, the area’s #1 luxury real estate company. I rank among the top 1/2 of the 1% best producers in the U.S.

So what is my job? Is it to sell houses? Well, yes. But it is so much more than that. I actually see my role as more of a matchmaker. It’s my job to find the perfect house, neighborhood, and schools for each individual family I serve, with the goal of setting the stage for a happy life.

I love this city, my home, and my neighborhood, and that’s what I want for everyone who lives in Miami. It takes experience, patience, and a deep knowledge of the many neighborhoods across our multi-cultured, sprawling city to be a successful real estate matchmaker.

It also takes a broad understanding and comfort level with the international buyers who flock here.

Whether you’re buying or selling, you’ve come to the right place at MBG.

How I Do It

Armed with an in-depth knowledge of Greater Miami’s luxury real estate market, I guide buyers and sellers through each step of what I realize can feel like a dizzying, even overwhelming process.

I listen. I really listen.

Real estate is not a once-size-fits-all commodity and I make sure to understand clearly what you, personally, want before taking the first step.

With a trusted, extensive network of real estate professionals, you’ll have all the support you need to prepare and market your home for sale – domestically and internationally – or to find and assess your new dream home.

How I “Got Here”

Miami became my home in 1971, when my parents moved our family here from Rio de Janeiro, where we’d lived through the late 1960s.

Colombian-born and having attended an American school in Brazil, I arrived as a tri-lingual teen with an international world view. I graduated from Our Lady of Lourdes Academy in South Miami and from the University of South Florida in Tampa.

Heading straight back to Miami, I was soon married and raising children who received excellent educations at St. Thomas Episcopal School in South Miami, Palmer Trinity School in Palmetto Bay, and Ransom Everglades School in Coconut Grove. We made our beautiful home in a historic Florida estate in Coral Gables, across from Fairchild Tropical Gardens.

In addition to this background, I’ve spent my life traveling extensively throughout Latin America, the Caribbean, and Europe. This life experience from the earliest days helped make me an ideal Realtor for the international, cosmopolitan city that Miami has become over the past 40 years.

My Community Roots

When you’re happy and love your home, you want to give back to your community, helping to make it even better in any way you can. It’s been my privilege and delight to find many ways to participate in the never-ending quest of making The Magic City even more special than it already is.

Among my favorite community service roles are my place on the council for the Miami Cancer Institute at Baptist Health Systems, and my role as board member at both St. Thomas Episcopal and Palmer Trinity schools. Beyond these positions, I have had the pleasure and honor of volunteering for many years in various additional local non-profit organizations.

If you also wish to have a role in serving your community once you’ve settled into your dream home, I’d be happy to give you suggestions based on your interests, and very likely will be able to make relevant introductions, as well.

How All This Benefits You

Knowledge. Experience. Superior customer service. Connections. An international network. Extensive client referrals. A hard-working, committed support staff.

All of these elements combine to give you, with MBG Realty Group, expert guidance in every stage of the real estate process, from first-time home buyers, to up-sizing young professionals, lateral moves, downsizing in the luxury arena, and domestic or international relocation to Miami.

It doesn’t take magic to make luxury home buying and selling go smoothly.

It takes the right Realtor to make it feel that way.
