Annette Funicello and Frankie Avalon's beach party movies first drew me to the beach way back when I was a little kid and I have never gotten over it. I find nothing better than to be able to live and work in a place that I enjoy and love so much.
This is why I have directed almost all of my passion for real estate into the Miami Beach area, I also serve (and live in) the Upper East Side which includes Miami Shores.
As a marketing and sales leader for over two decades, let me put my 25+ years of professional expertise coupled with boundless energy to work for you.
Integrity, honesty and marketplace knowledge is a key to selling real estate in todays uncertain times. My clients satisfaction comes first in my business and my team work hard to make sure that that is job number one. The real estate business has changed a lot since I first started out and it is very important to me to stay on top of all the new technologies as well as market and housing style trends.
Before starting my full time career in real estate I studied and worked in architectural design and construction, this has come to be a very handy background tool to posses when assisting buyers make that ultimate decision. I can help buyers envision what a potential purchase might look like with redesigning/remodeling plans. This service also often translates to my sellers as facilitating a quicker sale. Win win situation all around!

Some people like to see numbers to register results. Here are some stats for me.
I was top producer at my Coldwell Banker office 9 months out of 12 in 1990 (my first year in the biz), $150,000,000+ sold in south Florida real estate. Number 1 in sales of condo conversions in south Florida from 1993-2003.
Licensed REALTOR in Florida since 1990. Member of the Realtor Association of Greater Miami-Dade, member of the National Association of Realtors since 1990, Owner broker of NewStar Realty & Development 1998-2003.
Other interestes include spending time in my painting studio. My second hat is of an abstract artist with an international following. I have my work in local galleries and have had expositions in Miami Beach, Roatan Honduras, San Miguel de Allende Mexico, Tampa FL and in Fort Lauderdale.
I also designed, built, owned and operated a boutique resort on the island of Roatan, Honduras in 2003. This was a dream of mine for years and to see it come to fruition was fantastic. This tiny natural island is a diver's paradise and also now a cruise ship destination.
As previously noted, another of my passions is painting. In 2005 I built a large studio for myself in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico where I also maintain a home. This is where I create my largest abstract works of art. San Miguel de Allende is well known amongst the "arty & cultural set" as one of the top cultural areas of Mexico.
I also enjoy a very active outdoors life style, from biking to afternoons tending to my mini farm of fruits trees and veggies. I have believed all my life that a healthy active body contributes to a bright and creative mind. Balance is an important key to well being. I always make time for the gym even if it is just what I call an "express workout" (feel free to ask) and a daily swim.
Salesperson of the month Coldwell Banker (12 times) in my first 2 years in the business.
Salesperson and or top lister Majestic Properties (12 times) in the same year.
I know construction and have an extensive architectural background which makes solving space and design issues for customers very easy.
Marketing is also a fortay as I spent many years in advertising.
As a restaurant and hotel owner the hospitality field is a big part of my repitore and added greatly to my "people skills".

|We need to sell in order to relocate during a tough market. Marco came in took control and sold our property to his own buyer. He made the process smooth and seamless and we would recommend him highly!|
My marketing and sales focus is primarily residential real estate in the areas of Miami Beach, South Beach & the Upper East Side/Miami Shores.
