What was your most interesting job before going into real estate?

Before moving to Miami, I went to law school in Bogota, Colombia. While in school, I worked as a paralegal for a small firm, which seemed like my dream job.

Where did you grow up?

I grew up in Bogota, Colombia, but I have had the pleasure of calling South Florida home for the past 20 years.

Growing up, what did you want to be?

When I was a little girl, all I wanted to be was an adult. I wanted to wear makeup and high heels and be in charge.

What do you do to relax when you’re stressed?

My favorite stress reliever is working out on my Peloton. I have the bike and the treadmill, and in my opinion, nothing beats a killer workout with your favorite music. Of course, I also enjoy a glass of good wine and food.

If you could meet any well-known figure (living or not), who would it be and why?

I would love to meet Elon Musk. He is not only a genius, but he had the ambition, drive and work ethic to become the greatest innovator of our century. He is also a free thinker, and I love what he is doing for freedom of speech.

Where is South Florida’s best-kept secret?

Our best-kept secret is “out of the bag.” Everyone all over the country knows what makes our location so unique, and they all want to move here. South Florida has it all. We’ve always had great weather, but now we have an amazing culinary scene, a hub for arts and culture with everything from world-class museums, galleries, street art, theater and live performances. We have become a destination for major international events such as the recent Formula One, on top of drawing significant businesses in the tech and financial industries.

What do you love most about the industry?

Because of Miami’s melting pot, I get to meet people from different backgrounds every day, and I love that!

What is the most difficult aspect of your job?

Nowadays, I have to say it is to find inventory. Overall, real estate agents are always in the middle, trying to make all the ends meet and being mediators to make all people involved in a transaction happy.

What’s your best advice for generating new leads?

Once you do an outstanding job, you will get referrals from past clients.

What are you binge-watching/reading/listening to lately?

I find it hard to find the extra time to watch TV or read, so I’m always listening to audiobooks in my car. My favorite topics include anything related to the brain, mindset and motivation. My all-time favorite is “Becoming Supernatural” by Dr. Joe Dispenza. I recently started “Limitless” by Jim Kwik.

What’s your favorite meal in South Florida?

The short rib pasta, bison tartare, and a glass of Cabernet at a hidden gem in Coral Gables called Fiola. No one expects to find the best Italian restaurant in Miami off the beaten path in South Coral Gables, but there it is!

Architecturally speaking, what is your favorite building in South Florida?

My favorite is One Thousand Museum by late architect Zaha Hadid.

What’s the weirdest thing that’s ever happened to you on the job?

I walked into an apartment with clients for a showing, and when I opened the door, a couple was putting the unit to its highest and best use! LOL! Now, I make sure I knock loudly on the door several times, even if I know the unit is vacant.

What’s one thing people might be surprised to learn about you?

They might be surprised to know that I’m a soccer and helicopter mom of two teenagers.

What’s your favorite vacation spot and why?

It’s hard to have a favorite vacation spot when you live in Miami, but if I had to pick a destination, I have to say it is anywhere with nice weather, good food and drinks, and friendly people.

In 10 words or less, what is your advice for someone new to the industry?
