"Luiz is an excellent realtor. We definitely felt he had our interests in mind and took account of our needs and wants. He understands the market and gave us good insight into the things we needed to be aware of being new to the area. He's also very personable and professional. We'd definitely work with him again." - Dave & Anabel B., Palmetto Bay, Miami-Dade (...and they did! We sold their home less than two years later for a 35% gain on purchase price)

★★★★★
"In September 2020, my husband and I considered upgrading our condo and met with Luiz to discuss our ideal home. He immediately set up online searches for us that were relevant and productive. Despite our desire to see a lot of units before we acted, Luiz followed through on every request we made and never tired of setting up viewings and analyzing what we had seen and what to do next. We saw a lot of condos and did make a couple of offers, which involved getting and reviewing condo docs, amending contracts, negotiating difficult terms, etc. Luiz was always available and always did what he could to help us in the process, including scheduling contractors to follow up on an inspection. We bought our new condo in early 2021, and it truly fits what we were looking for when we had our first talk with Luiz. When we decided to sell our old place in the spring of 2021, we did not hesitate to give Luiz the listing. Luiz negotiated with the buyers agent to get an excellent price, and Luiz again helped us at the last minute when we were unable to remove some items from the apartment on time. We could not have asked for more patience, diligence, and advocacy in a real estate agent. We recommend Luiz without hesitation." - Jodie B. & Jack K., Edgewater, Miami

★★★★★
"Superb agent! I have used Luiz's services to buy and sell properties, and both times, he was on point, responsive and executed flawlessly. Luiz listened, understood objectives, delivered on commitments, and guided me through a process I was unfamiliar with, keeping my best interests at heart every step of the way. If you want to work with a true professional, I recommend you give him a call." - Hugo B., North Bay Village, Miami-Dade

★★★★★
"Luiz has been most outstanding in selling our condo. He got us almost full asking price. He is a true professional. We found him to be extremely honest, dedicated and kept us informed at all levels. He even helped negotiate for us, and navigated a complicated situation extremely well. I have never seen a real estate professional work so hard and so dedicated to doing a good job. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking to buy or sell in the Miami area." - Noreen H. South Beach, Miami Beach

★★★★★
"Luiz is trustworthy, supportive and patient, while still being proactive. We went through a complicated process and Luiz had the patience of guiding us through a couple of minefields to everyone's satisfaction. We are delighted with our new home!" - Christina S., Brickell, Miami

★★★★★
"In a short period of time, Luiz understood exactly our needs and wants. He was our eyes and ears for the most part of the process, and we ended up purchasing two properties that were exactly what we were looking for. Luiz did a superb job in helping us to buy, refurbish, and eventually rent out our apartments in Aventura, Florida." - Alejandro & Graciela A., Aventura, Miami-Dade

★★★★★
"Luiz was a pleasure to work with when selling my property and finding a new home. His knowledge of the area, creative marketing skills, and professionalism made the process stress free. I'm very happy with the home he found for me but when it's time for a change, he will be the first person I call!" - Dawn P., Surfside, Miami-Dade

★★★★★
"Let me start by saying Luiz has been my real estate agent on four occasions with exceptional results, every single time! I also recommended him to some good friends and they were equally impressed. I'm not just a repeat client - I am a huge fan. In my first experience, Luiz helped me find and purchase a waterfront condo in the Brickell area in 2015. I have since used him to find renters on three occasions for a condo I own in Brickell East - most recently in February 2020. Here are a few specific reasons why I am so appreciative to have Luiz as my agent: Only showed properties that met my very precise requirements and desires. Lined up the showings and maximized the use of my time. Raised advantages, disadvantages and questions about each property that I had not considered. Worked well with the other agents - many of whom were not operating at his high level of professionalism, punctuality or responsibility. Gave me great advice on many issues including a delay from my mortgage bank and dealing with a difficult-personality seller. The closing would have had a less favorable outcome with a lesser agent. Made the paper work easy; I am an airline pilot and I have been able to complete listing agreements, contracts and other paperwork on my smart phone while on oversea layovers. Found exceptional tenants for my rental property on three occasions. Made the showings, lease signing and closing virtually effortless for me. Superb communication skills in English, Spanish and Portuguese which has been quite useful. I recommended Luiz to some military friends and he helped them find a perfect fit for a rental property near Southcom in Doral. That is five exceptional experiences. When you find someone this good at what they do, you hold to them and recommend to them to your friends!" - Patrick K., Brickell, Miami

★★★★★
"Luiz is a professional and a true gentleman. He scheduled several property visits, was knowledgeable of the buildings and neighborhoods, and walked me through the details involved with my purchase, which helped me feel empowered to make the right decision. I am happy with my new home and its beautiful location!" - Patricia J.C.C., Brickell, Miami

★★★★★
"Luiz was very helpful in introducing us to the Miami area and helping us find a place that was a great fit for us. He was very patient, and definitely interested in finding the right place for us, not simply making a sale. In a real estate market where many agents seem to be focused only on the money, Luiz is an excellent example of someone who is really concerned about his customers and what is in their best interest." - Gabriel & Carolina L., Coral Way, Miami

★★★★★
"Outstanding realtor! Luiz was super helpful and very accessible anytime of the day. Luiz was on top of things throughout the process and was able to help us close within our time limit. We couldn't have asked for this process to go any better; Luiz was one of the main reasons for such a smooth process. I would recommend him to anyone looking to purchase a new home!" - Silvia F.C., West Flagler, Miami

★★★★★
"Luiz was PHENOMENAL! He gets my absolute highest recommendation and endorsement! Incredible understanding of the local market, he recommended and assisted with modernization efforts which helped with a rapid sale. His tenacity and dedication to negotiating afforded me the best price for my home. Luiz immediately answered all of my questions and was available 24/7 to help me! Consummate professional and customer focused! If you are in the market to buy or sell a home, Luiz will meet all your needs and make it happen!! I am so glad he was recommended to me and I wholeheartedly recommend him to you!" - Eric S., Doral, Miami-Dade

★★★★★
"For us, Luiz is forever. We bought the unit in Miami Beach using his services, and we enjoyed it for years, as well as the excellent location; we later sold it with him at a good profit as well. Luiz knows and loves his trade. Besides, he knows how to help people like us, who had a number of doubts, by giving us the proper information to make decisions. The fact that we sold the property does not mean at all that we will ever forget him. He is one of a kind and we consider him a good friend. His personality shines with dedication, good work, efficient help and outstanding patience and intelligence. Should we require realtor services in the area, there is no doubt in our minds that we would first contact him above all other professionals. If we could rate him, we would give him a 10. Thank you very much Luiz and God bless you." - Gaston & Susanne V., North Beach, Miami Beach

★★★★★
"If you want sound advise on investing in properties in Miami, Luiz is the ideal agent to call. I purchased one of his listings on the beach three and a half years ago... Location, Location, Location! We just sold at a 28% gain. Thanks, Luiz!" - Patricia J.C.C., North Beach, Miami Beach

★★★★★
"After a two year search for the ideal home and several realtors, Luiz was a god-sent. Two months of working with Luiz and the deal was done. His tireless, positive (while realistic) outlook combined with proactive problem solving were very reassuring. Buying a home can be overwhelming or intimidating at times. Luiz' experience and professionalism put me at ease and helped me through a timely closing within my needs and wants. I would confidently recommend Luiz to any friend or family member." - Cecilia D., South Beach, Miami Beach

★★★★★
"My spouse and I were in the market for a pied-à-terre in Miami Beach. We initially contacted Luiz about a listing for a studio that, unfortunately, was already under contract for sale. Luiz, nonetheless, offered to work with us, and we could not have made a better decision. Luiz is thorough, respectful and efficient – a true professional. Coming in from New York, with just a weekend to view properties and make a decision, the showings were right on target with what we were looking for. After narrowing down our search to two properties. Luiz helped us arrive at an offer price for the one that we ultimately liked the most. The offer was accepted by the seller, and then Luiz was able to renegotiate the price down substantially to meet the bank’s appraised value. We love our apartment in North Beach!" - Prentis G. & Javier B., North Beach, Miami Beach

★★★★★
"I've known Luiz over 30 years as a friend and now as my realtor on my recent move to Florida. Luiz's attention to detail and thoroughness, made my house hunting and purchase a breeze." - William S., Fort Lauderdale

★★★★★
"By far the best in the business. We now have a weekend vacation home on Millionaire's Row! Keep up the good work." - Jeffrey & Iliana G., Mid Beach, Miami Beach

★★★★★
"Luiz Cavalcanti was great. Being out of town buyers of a second home, having an agent we trusted in Miami Beach was paramount. Luiz was very professional, knowledgeable and responsive to our concerns. From start to finish Luiz was prompt at returning calls, emails or texts. His past experience with sales in the area was very useful in helping us find the perfect pied-à-terre in Miami Beach. I would highly recommend Luiz to anyone needing a real estate agent. You won't be disappointed." - Kyle H. & Rick C., South Beach, Miami Beach

★★★★★
"I highly recommend Luiz Cavalcanti as realtor and a professional. Luiz first called me about a year and a half ago wanting to list some of my residential investment properties for sale. He was one of 42 realtors and brokers that contacted me at the time. I decided to take a chance on him because he is personable, persistent while not pushy, and came across as honest and reliable. I listed three condo units with him, and he sold all three within six months; two of them to his own clients. The negotiations were smooth, as were the closings, and we got an average of 98% of asking price. I am sure this is one of many times we will partner with Luiz to get the job done right, and on time." - Dr. Gabriel C., North Beach, Miami Beach

★★★★★
"I had the pleasure of being introduced to Luiz through a friend of mine and my experience working with him exceeded my highest expectations of any realtor. I had to find a place and move in within a couple of weeks and Luiz made my journey smooth and stress-free. His punctuality, kindness, and intelligence made him stand out from other realtors I've used in the past. His knowledge of the area was very useful when finding a place with the specifications I wanted, and he answered my concerns quickly and in great detail. He knew what to say at the right time and what questions to ask when necessary. Real estate isn't my expertise and I couldn't have been luckier to have had someone like Luiz help me through the process knowing I could trust him to do what's best for me. Thank you so much for all you did, Luiz, it was an absolute pleasure!" - Mayu K., Brickell, Miami

★★★★★
"We've worked with Luiz several times in the past 3.5 years, and he has been fantastic! He is an extremely knowledgeable local guide offering expert insight, not only into good neighborhoods, restaurants, recreational activities, and schools, but down to the level of individual buildings. He has always gone above and beyond for us, contacting realtors/owners and finding available homes that even are not listed. He seems to have an extensive network throughout Miami. In addition, we find him extremely trustworthy, patient, and kind, which has served us well. We look forward to working with Luiz and happily referring friends/family to Luiz." - David & Adelina A., North Beach, Miami Beach

★★★★★
"Luiz did a great job helping me find a rental apartment. My previous landlord put his condo on the market and Luiz was his agent. When he scheduled showings of the apartment I was still living in, Luiz was very respectful. He asked where I was moving to after the sale, and if I could use help finding a new home. Working with Luiz was very pleasant. He was professional, approachable, and went the extra mile to make sure I had a new home before the final sale of the property. I am very happy and recommend his services!" - Betsy O., North Beach, Miami Beach

★★★★★
"Luiz is the best!!! He always goes out of his way to really help and find the right property. He helps with all of the ins and outs and basically makes finding your next home as stress-free as possible. Plus he's super nice and just an overall great person!" - Renae V., South Beach, Miami Beach

★★★★★
"Luiz is personable and professional. He is attentive and is willing to go the extra step to ensure your services are completed. He finds you exactly what you want and works with you the entire process. He was a joy to work with and hope our paths cross again!" - Ann C., Midtown, Miami

★★★★★
"Luiz was tasked with helping me find a home close to work and in an area that would be commutable if my company were to relocate. On top of that, we needed to find a home that would allow me to bring my 75Lb dog with me. Luiz worked diligently to help me find the right place in a location that was good no matter where my company moved and he helped me negotiate the price down to a much more affordable monthly payment and a backyard for my dog!" - Shawn H., Buena Vista, Miami

★★★★★
"Luiz was wonderful and very knowledgeable about the Miami Beach area! I was very impressed with his follow through skills and his professionalism. I would highly recommend Luiz to anyone looking to buy, sell or rent." - Anchelle W., North Beach, Miami Beach
