Elite Ocean View Realty
A Realtor with Elite Ocean View Realty, Helen Fuertes earned her real estate license after college while working for a construction company and has excelled from the start. Fuertes began her real estate career 15 years ago working for a developer in downtown Fort Lauderdale, and then operated a sales office on a day-to-day basis in a luxury condominium. Fuertes has accumulated a diverse knowledge base over the years and sells condominiums, single and multifamily homes, and commercial spaces.
Fuertes recently formed Designed By Luisa, her own design consultation company, to assist clients who are looking to remodel. “I realized that many of my second homeowners, investors and out-of-state clients don’t have the time to make their property what they want it to be. There are so many beautiful older properties that just need a little updating,” she says, adding that her background in art lends itself to this new venture.
Fuertes specializes in the markets of Downtown Miami, Edgewater, Miami Beach, Bal Harbour, Aventura and north up to Downtown Fort Lauderdale and Fort Lauderdale Beach. “I love South Florida,’” she says, “and since Miami is such a global city, I cater to out-of-state and international buyers and renters who are looking for someone they can trust and rely on to have their best interests at heart. They rely on my judgment and expertise to find them the perfect home. Since I have clients from out of the area, I do a livestream view of the property. My goal is to always create a seamless and stress-free transaction for my clients.”
Fuertes is an Accredited Buyer’s Representative as well as a member of the National Association of Realtors, Florida Realtors, Miami Association of Realtors, and Real Estate Buyer’s Agent Council.
Outside of work, Fuertes is an exercise enthusiast and volunteers with her local animal shelter and her church to aid the homeless and the elderly.
