    Gladis Henriquez of Optimar International Realty recently helped my dad Herbert Rutkin sell his single family home in “Parkside Community”, Boca Raton Florida and also help him to purchase his new Condominium in “Anchor Bay”, Hallandale Beach Florida. Even though that Gladis lives in Sunny Isles, she always was present at every showing until we received an acceptable offer. Gladis recommended to us Philip Rosen/ Sawgrass Title, as the closing company and also helped my dad with the moving process, making his experience a pleasure. My dad is very happy in his new condo, I recommend Gladis Henriquez as your Realtor if you are thinking to purchase or sell your real estate property in Aventura, Sunny Isles, Hallandale or any other city in S.Florida.
