With over a decade of experience in sales and management, a bachelor’s degree in Information

world. These characteristics also allow him to win over clients everywhere he goes.

University of Venezuela. Back then, all he knew was that his effective communication skills,
attention to detail and the ability to connect with people would work well in a sales

customers happy and contribute to the bottom line.

In 2016, Jose received the ‘KW Miami Rising Star 2016’ award, a year after he joined the Keller Williams International Realty. A year later, he secured a spot in the Top Producers Wall and became one of the youngest agents to make it.

That’s why clients count on him to take them through the real estate process with ease.

Moreover, his dedication to this line of work and devotion to clients makes it easier for him to build long-lasting relationships with everyone he meets. That’s probably why the majority of his portfolio is acquired through referrals and recurring clients.
