My business and my life are interwoven, which means that I find purpose, fulfillment, and happiness in assisting friends, family, and clients with the impactful life change of buying and/or selling their homes. Homeownership is a very personal and important transition in our lives and it is an honor to be involved in any way with your real estate endeavor.

As a Colombian-American and native Miamian with over 20 years in real estate, I have specialized knowledge of the nuances of buying and selling homes throughout Miami-Dade County. Including Coconut Grove, Coral Gables, Palmetto Bay, Miami Beach, and more.

Being fully fluent in English and Spanish, and knowing conversational French,  is a huge benefit in Miami as it enables me to communicate with clients in several languages.

I began my Real Estate career as a licensed real estate assistant while I attended University. Before my University graduation (BA in Psychology, FIU, Cum Laude), I was helping to run a boutique Real Estate firm, processing mortgages and titles, as well as managing and training new Realtors. There, I met the future members of The Own Miami Team which currently consists of Jena and Richard Congdon, Claudia Benitez Perez, and myself.

Together, we are in the top 1/2 of 1% of agents nationwide in production volume. We also adhere to the highest levels of ethics and professionalism. I chose to work with a team not only because we each bring unique strengths and talents and can mastermind together, but because Real Estate cannot be done, to the highest levels, alone. If any of us has an emergency or a time conflict, we are there to step in and provide the highest levels of care for our clients.
