"My second time working with Ignacio was selling a apartment he helped me buy back in 2015. I feared that due to the realities of the market, it was going to take forever to sell but Ignacio was key in advising a pricing strategy that allowed me to stand out while getting the best possible price I could hope for. He marketed the property off the MLS through his contacts and managed to get me very close to asking within 1 week. he even negotiated for the buyer to pay an assessment that was due on the unit. I always know that with Ignacio I’m on the right hands. It’s someone I trust blindly. I can’t recommend him enough."

"I had an amazing experience using Ignacio as my realtor. From the moment I began to search for possible apartments, he was always on top of everything and went above and beyond my expectations. I was also very picky deciding on what I wanted and he was very patient with me throughout the entire process. He also showed me options which I didn’t even know I would like; always one step ahead of me. I would no doubt recommend him seeing that he was not great to work with, but also a friend and loyal person which was genuinely interested in meeting all of my needs and concerns."

"Ignacio was our realtor when my wife and I recently decided to purchase a home in Miami’s Morningside neighborhood. We had been scouting the area for a while for the right opportunity as we wanted a home we could rent for the first couple of years and then tear down to build something new. Ignacio was key in the process, he kept us updated of everything that came in the market and since he lives in the neighborhood he had a great deal of insight and perspective as to pros and cons of all the properties we considered. We also felt he had our best interest at heart, in several occasions we saw more expensive properties than what we ended up buying and while we liked them for subjective reasons, he always provided a very sound advice not to move forward with them as we would be overpaying, which we really appreciated especially since it was against is own personal interest. Ignacio was always reachable, very polite, patient and gave us a very good service. We wouldn’t work with any other agent in the future."

"Couldn’t ask for a better broker; I contacted him when I was considering moving from New York to Miami so he took me to several neighborhoods and was very patient and explained the different neighborhoods and their styles. He truly listened to my needs, and was never pushy or impatient with me. I would truly recommend him to anyone."

"My experience was great, the entire process was smooth and fast. After our conversation Ignacio understood perfectly what I was looking for and showed me great options. He knows a lot about the market and is able to give a good and honest opinion. Aside from his professionalism, Ignacio is very kind and was always reachable. Highly recommend him!"

About Ignacio
I was born and raised in Caracas Venezuela, where I graduated Law School from the Universidad Católica Andrés Bello in 2005. After working for one year as a paralegal at a big corporate law firm in Caracas, I quickly realized that while law was not my thing a legal background was going to give me a leg up in my professional career regardless of what field I chose. Upon graduating, I moved to New York City in 2005 and went on to have a 10-year-long corporate career in Marketing and Advertising and earned a Master's degree in Marketing Communication from NYU.

Real estate has always been a passion of mine and it's a career that "happened" organically when I moved to Miami in 2014. Right after the real estate market crash of 2008-2010, I began acquiring properties in Miami as an investor and learned the ins-and-outs of real estate with myself as my first client. My experience investing in and developing real estate has given me a deep understanding of the Miami market, its different demographics, neighborhoods and nuances associated with buying, owning and improving a home. It has also provided me with the tools and knowledge to determine areas of opportunity within Miami.

I'm advocate for all my clients and are all always looking out for their best interest because my clients' satisfaction is my real track record. If you're looking to buy, sell or rent real estate in Miami, feel free to reach out to chat about your property, my personal philosophy and do a chemistry check. I would love to help you sell your property or find your ideal home.
