What is the Driver Behind your Success?
I truly believe that education is the pillar of my career and the main reason why clients choose to work with us. Education on the market and providing clients with the most useful information is what instills trust in a professional and what drives my business. The meaning of education is twofold; educating myself and educating our clients. We are well researched and my mission has always been to add legitimate value in each and every one of our relationships. I want to help my clients to make better decisions by providing the best information.
When did you realize this was important?
When I started as a realtor in 2008, I realized it was almost impossible to find good actionable information on the Miami real estate market. Reports offered really basic, one-dimensional information, which was very generic information without distinguishing between neighborhoods or price levels. These kind of reports are hard to use when guiding specific clients, as they don’t tell you anything. I decided the industry needed a new real estate platform to provide potential sellers and buyers with excellent and independent information. I started writing blogs on the Miami real estate market and on the different neighborhoods, a relatively unknown concept at that moment in time.
Our start was simple and we have later evolved into writing more in-depth, analytics blogs. We then decided to go bigger and we ventured out in real estate reports and forecasts. Our reports focus on niche markets as we look at specific neighborhoods and specific price ranges. After I started writing my blogs and published my first real estate report my website started to rank higher for Miami real estate terms and I got several phone calls per week from potential investors.
Now, almost a decade later we are known for our market analytics, insightful blogs and actionable real estate reports and forecasts.Stay tuned for our new website; a trusted news site where you can find the most important information on Miami Real Estate. A place where you find the answers to the most pressing questions: “What is the best neighborhood?”, “What are the best buildings?”, What are the best schools?” and “What is going to happen this year and next year in the Miami real estate market?”. With our brand new, analytical tools we will really bring our site and the entire Miami real estate industry to the next level.
What do you do to educate yourself?
We have written over 1000’s of articles and I learn from writing these articles and reports. We live and breathe real estate and as we experience the market on a daily basis we see trends and come up with theories. After I establish a theory, I look at the numbers to proof or refute the theory. I prove myself wrong as much as I prove myself right when writing these articles. Education is the pillar to the business and if no one ever read a single article I wrote, it would not matter because it taught me something in the process. Our focus is to educate the market on the best and the worst. And we always welcome ideas for new articles and ask our readers to tell us what info they need that they don’t have access to right now.
Of course being active in the market and dealing with sellers and buyers on a daily basis makes you really understand the market and I have learned to combine human psychology with analytics.

You can say we dominate the market when it comes to market analytics and that is valued by our clients.
