Why did you choose Real Estate?
Real estate provides the flexibility to balance time with clients and personal fulfillment, allowing me to live the life I want. For example, I can schedule appointments around personal commitments without sacrificing the quality of service I provide to my clients.
What was your journey to where you are today?
After graduating with a concentration in entrepreneurship from St. Louis University's business school, I joined my family's business, where I gained experience in wholesale and retail building and marketing. In 2009, I founded 4Realty, specializing in commercial and investment properties in Belize City and countrywide. As the current President of the Belize National Association of Realtors, I am committed to industry upgrades, and I am working towards the culmination of Belize's Real Estate Act.
What is one of your favorite client stories?
Selling a property within a tight timeframe to fund a dream home can be incredibly stressful and overwhelming. I understand the high stakes and pressure involved and go above and beyond to help my clients achieve their goals. For example, when my client came to me with this specific challenge, I worked tirelessly to find the right buyer and close the sale on time. Seeing my client walk away satisfied was an emotional moment for me, reminding me why I got into the real estate business in the first place.
What is your biggest success story to date?
One of my proudest achievements was brokering the sale of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Foreign Trade, and Immigration building in Belize City. Working with the government sector on such a scale was a significant accomplishment, and I was pleased to see everyone walk away happy. The deal involved negotiations and challenges, but it felt incredibly worthwhile in the end.
What makes your market unique?
I specialize in finding value for cash buyers in a nationwide market with a variety of property types and locations. We are constantly finding hidden gems dotted across the country and matching them with the right buyers.
