Florida has so many realtors. What makes you unique?
Unlike so many local realtors who are transplants from other areas, I’m a lifetime Florida resident. I was born and raised in the Miami area. All of my extended family lives here as well.
I have deep knowledge of Southwest Florida (Naples) and South Florida. I know its many neighborhoods and communities well. Having that background helps me to provide location insights to real estate home buyers and sellers.
What real estate brokerage are you with?
I’m proud to be a LoKation Real Estate realtor dual-based in Naples and South Florida. I split my time between both coasts. LoKation is the #1 nationwide real estate agency in terms of number agents and sales volume. One of the ways this benefits my sellers and buyers is that as a LoKation Real Estate agent, I have access to the latest real estate technology and the many tools it encompasses to help me find buyers exactly what they want and also accelerate the sale of my listings. I also can tap into the immense LoKation Real Estate network across the country, which is especially useful for people relocating from out of state and also sellers looking to market their properties beyond Florida.
How did you get into real estate?
I think real estate is in my blood. My father has been a real estate broker for 40 years in Miami and now lives in Cape Coral, Southwest Florida so I grew up hearing about his business. I am the oldest of 8 children in my family, and 5 of us are in real estate in South Florida. Both my adult son and future daughter in law are Florida realtors too, so the tradition carries on!

I develop individualized plans for each of my listings, which can include any of a wide array of marketing vehicles such as email campaigns, social media, open houses, signage, brochures, postcards, direct mail and more. I’ll make sure your home gets maximum exposure to potential buyers.
If I’m ready to sell my home, what’s the next step?
Let’s schedule a meeting at your home to discuss the best strategy for getting your home on the market. I’ll tell you how much comparable homes in the area are selling for and what I think we can get for your house. We can also discuss ways to maximize your selling price such as necessary updates or repairs, staging and marketing. And, of course, I’ll answer any questions you have about the selling process.

Do you speak Spanish?
Yes, I’m fluent in Spanish having been raised in Miami, Florida. Also my father is Cuban and my mother is from Argentina and her parents are Italian, so I grew up in a bilingual household.
How did you get your unusual name?
I was one of those babies born with the umbilical cord wrapped tightly around my neck. The doctor tried so hard to free me and then get me breathing but nothing worked. Finally, when he sadly gave up, feeling there was nothing more he could do, I suddenly took my first breath on my own. The doctor exclaimed, “It’s a miracle!” And the rest, as they say, is history.
