Today’s speaker was Elizabeth Perez. She was born in Cuba and she has earned the reputation of being one of the most trusted names in Miami’s real estate. She is a dedicated broker, associate and assistant district sales manager with the Keyes Company in Coral Gables. She specializes in selling commercial real estate properties.
She is fluent in English and Spanish and travels the globe to track changes in real estate, as well as to work with clients from Europe, China, South America, and the Middle East, assisting them in finding first-class investments in commercial properties. She has been quoted in top of the line magazines, and because of her in-depth knowledge of real estate trends, she regularly counsels other realtors on shifts in the market.
Elizabeth began her career in Illinois before moving to Miami over 15 years ago. Because of her own transition to South Florida, she understands the unique challenges that arise when her clients choose to buy in a new area.
Elizabeth is the President of the Miami Chapter of the Women’s Council of Realtors, she is actively involved in the Coral Gables Chamber of Commerce, BRG, and has served as Secretary of the Miracle Mile Toastmasters Club. She also offers mentorship and training to future realtors at the Keyes Company.
She is happily married and the mother of two children, her son Manuel, who is an intricate part of her team. He has an MBA in International Business, a BA in International Relations. Elizabeth’s daughter is a real estate attorney in Boston. Massachusetts.
Elizabeth feels that the Keyes Company is a perfect match for her team because it is family based. The Keyes Company is family-owned and in business since 1926.
Elizabeth believes that the most important aspect of real estate is not to sell the property but to market it through the regular channels and to the network of realtors. Miami Dade alone has 31,000 realtors.
Elizabeth and her team specializes in multi-family homes, warehouses and office space. They also offer business brokerage services to clients who want to buy or sell their businesses. Office leases are increasing in price as vacancies are going down. Warehouse prices have gone up in the past years, in particular in the Doral, Wyndwood and Midtown Miami areas.
