FIU Testimonials


We were four college students looking to get off campus with little knowledge of how to go about it. A friend referred us to Marco and told us that he was a good person to work with. It was a continuous struggle to find a place that would accept us but, Marco worked with us tirelessly sending offers, keeping us well informed, and offering different solutions to our problems even on his vacation. He definitely made this huge transition an easier burden on us all. I’m proud to say that we now have a place stay that fits exactly all the criteria that we needed.

Jem was a very helpful with our family’s relocation to Miami, Florida.  She anticipated our needs and preferences, and was able to show us exactly what we wanted.  Her knowledge of the area, professional expertise, and personal courtesy were above and beyond our expectations.  We highly recommend Jem to anyone looking to relocate to Miami, Florida.

My daughter had been accepted at the FIU College of Law the previous Friday before school began, so we needed to find her an apartment quickly and get her moved in prior to classes starting on Monday.

The FIU Housing Office had recommended my daughter call Marco to help us locate an appropriate apartment in the area.  This proved to be a very wise plan as we had no idea how or where to start looking.

Marco had talked with Kendra about her needs and wants and had set up a couple of appointments prior to our arrival. After the first day, he had a better understanding of what we were looking for.

The second day we found the perfect place. The leasing process was new to me, but Marco was patient, kind and understanding. He is definitely the type of real estate agent you can trust and will want to work with to find the best possible place for your student.

Marco was a tremendous help, knowledgeable, friendly, courteous and a true gentleman. He is punctual, knows the safe locations north and south of school, listens to your needs and finds the best possible matches within your budget.  I can highly recommend him for your real estate needs.

“Marco was the best resource I had in my search for housing in a city I had little knowledge about, Miami, FL. I tried searching for apartments online by myself only to find fraudulent listings or overpriced options. I was just a few short months away from starting law school in a city that was 5 hours away from where I was. After too many failed attempts at searching for apartments by myself, I decided reaching out to Marco, who was recommended to me by FIU Law faculty, was worth a shot. Having never worked with a real estate agent before, I wasn’t sure of what to expect. Marco answered all of my questions and guided me through the entire process step by step. He showed up to our appointment prepared with answers and suggestions, and graciously showed me around to different properties. He gave me suggestions on neighborhoods that I would never have thought about myself. I immediately signed a lease at our first showing appointment with a property he had taken the time to hand pick for me based on my preferences. I was pleasantly surprised at how successful the showing was. Throughout our appointment and the entire housing search process, Marco showed the utmost professionalism and concern. He was always available to answer questions through e-mail, phone calls, or text. He even drove me to and from the properties to where I will be attending law school so I can best judge the commute. Marco far exceeded my expectations. If I ever need real estate services in South Florida, Marco Clavijo will definitely be the first person I call.”

“Before our appointment with Marco, my daughter and I were worried about where she would live in Miami before she started law school. Both of us not being familiar with the area, I was worried about the safety of the  neighborhood where she would reside. I went along with my daughter to our appointment with Marco. He was prepared with many properties that met our criteria, and assured me that he would not recommend a property in which he wouldn’t want a family member of his to live in. Marco knew very much about the properties and neighborhoods he showed us and was able to answer any questions I had. His concern and ability to put me at ease about the safety of the neighborhoods we were looking at really helped me feel like we were in good hands. He treated me and my daughter with amazing professionalism. We signed a lease during our first appointment because of his amazing ability to pinpoint what we were looking for in our housing hunt, and deliver properties that met our needs. I consider him an exemplary real estate agent, and am thankful for his help in finding my daughter an apartment that not only she is happy with, but I’m also at ease with when it came to my concerns for her safety and comfort.”

I would like to highly recommend Marco Clavijo and his real estate company. I am currently living in Orlando but will be moving down to Miami to go to school. I have never lived in Miami, and have never rented. Marco went above and beyond my expectations in giving me listings and information after gathering my preferences of what type of place I would like to live in and pay for. He carefully selected the places that met my preferences and after physically seeing a couple of places Marco had an intuition of the place I would like best and he was right! It was difficult for me to physically be in Miami so when he found the perfect apartment for me, he made sure to do everything he could on his end so I would not have to drive down there to reserve the apartment. He diligently followed up and answered all my questions to the fullest. He has been a pleasure to work with and has been a significant help in my relocating process. I will use him again and recommend him for all needing a real estate agent.
