The MBG Advantage
An international network. Comprehensive knowledge and experience. Superior customer service. Extensive connections and client referrals. A hard-working, committed support staff.
Armed with these elements and an in-depth knowledge of Greater Miami’s luxury real estate market – along with my trusted professional network — I guide buyers and sellers through each step of what can feel like a dizzying, even overwhelming process.
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.
What I Do
I’ve been a licensed Miami Realtor since 2006 and serve as a Vice President at Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices EWM Realty, South Florida’s #1 luxury real estate company, where I rank among the top 1% producers in the U.S.
So, what’s my job? To help people buy and sell houses? To help them with relocation? Well, yes. But it’s also much more than that. I actually see my role as more of a matchmaker.
It’s really my job to find the perfect house, neighborhood, and schools for each family I serve, with the goal of setting the stage for a happy life.
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.
I understand that buying or selling your home is not just an important financial transaction, but an emotional one, as well. I take very seriously the responsibility of serving as your Realtor, which I do with absolute honesty and integrity. That is my promise and that of every member of The Monica Betancourt Group.
The referrals and repeat clients that comprise a large part of my business are a testament to the first-rate experience of working with us.
Why I Do It
I moved to Miami in 1971, after growing up in several South & Central American countries. I’ve traveled extensively throughout Latin America, the Caribbean, and Europe. As amazing as those places are, to me none outshines Miami.
I love our city, my home, and my neighborhood. I can’t imagine living anywhere else, and I wish that same feeling of joyful belonging for everyone who lives here.
As a Realtor, I’ve found my way to help people attain that joy. I combine experience, patience, and a deep knowledge of the many neighborhoods across our multi-cultured, sprawling city to succeed as a real estate matchmaker.
Additionally, my life experience — as well as being tri-lingual in English, Spanish, and Portuguese — helped me develop into an ideal Realtor for the international metropolis that Miami has become over the past 40 years.
My Community Roots
I am wholeheartedly dedicated to giving back to our wonderful community, helping to make it even better in any way I can.
Among my favorite volunteer roles are my place on the Council for the Miami Cancer Institute at Baptist Health Systems, and my past service as board member at both St. Thomas Episcopal and Palmer Trinity schools, which my children attended. Beyond these positions, I have had the pleasure and honor of volunteering for many years in various additional non-profit Miami organizations.
If you also wish to have a role in serving our community once you’ve settled into your dream home, I’d be happy to help. I can provide suggestions based on your interests, and most likely will also be able to make relevant introductions.
