For close to 6 years, he’s been a Real Estate Asset Manager and Broker to select individuals from domestic and international affluent families, as well as a handful of design and development groups and holdings companies. He manages their South Florida real estate portfolio and helps them make decisions based on market conditions, opportunities and all the surprises and celebrations life brings. He loves being their personal real estate consultant!
His family’s real estate and finance business in Central America exposed him at a very young age to a vocation he knew he would enjoy. The idea of transforming spaces – filling them with life and people – drives him to succeed every day. Having the ability to do this in the amazing urban centers of Miami, FL is a dream come true. His passion is dedicated to the work he does and the people with whom he works with.
Because of his clients’ endeavors and the immense diversity in real estate assets and opportunities Miami and South Florida offer, he’s been able to manage and trade everything from industrial assets, to retail store- fronts, development lots, residential rehabs, distressed properties, and more.
He works closely with an internal property management team at Benchmark Realty Group, to provide quality, full service brokerage and portfolio management, as well as external teams of attorneys, accountants and contractors.
