Michelle V- “ You will be 100% Satisfied

What a Journey!!!!  I want start off by saying after giving Marco address’s after address’s to look up and go see day and evening not to mention weekends too. Hundreds of phone calls and text messages from me again day and night. Bugging the heck out of him he was never bothered he ALWAYS jumped right on it. He helped us find our dream home in Homestead. Well after 4 years and an empty nest we decided to sell our dream home. One phone call and BAM Marco came over right away  and again day and night he worked moving things along and keeping us updated. Today was the closing and I want to thank you Marco for “EVERYTHING”!

I cannot say enough about Jem’s top class performance as a house mananger and an estate agent. Nothing was a problem. I always felt she was very honest and reliable and super efficient!! We have been blessed with Jem managing our Condo and she also sold it for us. I wish her all the best in her future endeavours.

Lillian M –  “Marco makes it his mission to not only secure the deal correctly and completely but he also makes sure that you are totally satisfied and truly goes above and beyond.” 

Marco and his team at Elite Real Estate Associates, Inc.  have not only been the best that I have dealt with in many years, but have shown true compassion to me during a very difficult time.
The short sale process I had to go thru took much longer than average.  During this time, Marco and his team were consistently following up with me, assisting the person that was interested in buying the property and being accessible to either myself or the buyer any time of the day.  When the buyer was unsure whether or not she could go thru with the deal, Marco was sympathetic but also firm that a decision had to be made within a deadline as it was not fair to me (the seller) to continue to be in limbo.  During this time, I lost my fiancé and was an emotional mess.  Marco stepped up to make several contacts that I should’ve done, to help ease the burden I was faced with.
As your realtor, Marco makes it his mission to not only secure the deal correctly and completely but he also makes sure that you are totally satisfied and truly goes above and beyond.

Marcos S –  “I’ve had the privilege of working with Marco Clavijo and his team for nearly 10 years”

To Whom It May Concern,

I’ve had the privilege of working with Marco Clavijo and his team for nearly 10 years.  I am a busy professional with family and kids living 2 hours away from my rental property.  I was looking for a realtor I could build a relationship with to help me manage the vacancy of my rental unit in Kendall.  Marco Clavijo came highly recommended from a friend of mine, and soon after talking to him, I realized why.  Marco has a great feel for his market and has been able to successfully market my unit with quality tenants.  Few things that separate Marco from other realtors include his attention to detail, follow through, people skills, and unmatched work ethic.  I am able to rely on Marco and his team to manage all details of the process, from putting unit in the market all the way until a new tenant moves in, more importantly with little to no involvement on my part.  Marco brings peace of mind to someone like me looking for a partner to help manage a rental property.  I highly recommend Marco Clavijo and his team for all of your real estate needs in Miami-Dade county.

Gilda G –  “My experience with Marco Clavijo & Elite Real Estate Associates, Inc was exceptional”

My experience with Marco Clavijo & Elite Real Estate Associates, Inc was exceptional. He not only helped us find a perfect buyer, but made sure we got the best price for my mothers house, which was not easy because she had lived there for over 30 years and wanted the perfect person to live there. He went above and beyond for us , He was always available to answer any questions we may have, or get us any information we may have needed at the time no matter what it was or no matter how many times we asked, and we did that a lot lol. My mother who is 83 and not tech savvy completely depended on Marco to go over all the documents for the listing and the closing, which he did with complete knowledge and no complaints.  He even offered to answer any questions my mother had regarding her new condo purchase just to make sure everything was done correctly. All though the buyer had to go thru several hoops, and closing seemed so far away if not for Marco’s patience and holding our hands thru the entire process I think my mother would still be in her old house, but thankfully she is not. If you are looking for an honest, hard working, dependable, sincere, knowledgeable, reliable and most of all a very caring person to sell or purchase real state, then he is the realtor for you. My mother and I can not thank him enough for all he has done for us.

Lillian M –  “Marco is very knowledgeable in his field of work, professional and demonstrated compassion when speaking with me”

To whom it may concern,

It is with pleasure that I write this letter of reference for Marco Clavijo.  I heard of Marco thru a previous client of his that coincidently was on the same flight I was.  We starting conversing and somehow got to the subject of the real estate market, then discovered I was in the same situation that she was recently in.  She highly recommended Marco and gave me his number.

I called him and instantly felt a connection and very at ease as Marco explained the process and offered to meet at my convenience, which we did.  Marco is very knowledgeable in his field of work, professional and demonstrated compassion when speaking with me and answering my questions.  Because I like to get to know the people I deal with on a personal basis I asked him about his family and discovered that during my short sale process not only did his wife give birth but his newborn son had to be hospitalized shortly after.  During this time I had to call upon Marco to assist me with a couple of issues and he was always helpful and at my disposal without hesitation.

I would highly recommend Marco to anyone who needed assistance with their real estate needs and would certainly call upon him again if the need arises

Alex S –  “Overwhelming sense of Professionalism, Integrity and ‘can do’ attitude”

The Clavijo team approached the sale of our home with an overwhelming sense of professionalism, integrity and ‘can-do’ attitude when faced with very specific expectations and limited time constraint. They not only attracted buyers but were an active partner, resource and advocate throughout the process. Thank you for everything!”

Ivette B – “Who wouldn’t want to work with you?”

Dear Marco,

You Helped me with the sale of my investment property and now with the sale of my primary residence. Of course, I came to you again because I knew what I was getting myself into – a transaction that would be seamless because I would have a knowledgeable professional on my side.

Once again, you came through – every step of the way. This process was more emotional for me since it was my primary home and I had to sell it without really wanting to. I communicated with you throughout my year long struggle to modify the loan, and you always encouraged me to fight for it while reminding me of all the options available to me. When it finally came time to sell, all I wanted was a quick, painless process. You helped me sell the property in four short months, from time of listing to time of closing… and with a full release nonetheless. That’s what I call a success, and I really don’t think anyone else could have done better or helped me more. Like I said before. I knew what I was getting myself into with you – professionalism, excellent and timely communication, outstanding service, and knowledge about the market and the short sale process.

I knew I was in good hands the first time I heard you say, “I treat your money as if it were my money” and you absolutely did that – you even saved me 9 days of association fess. Anyone else would have advised me to just pay it. Those little things just show that you say what you mean and mean what you say – who wouldn’t want to work with you?

Because of little things like this, I have mentioned your name to all those around me looking to buy and sell or rent a property. If anyone ever asks you for a reference, please give them my name and number. I will gladly help them make the best decision they can make for any real estate transaction — work with Marco!!!

Sincerely yours,

Ivette B


 Tamara – “Worry Free Short Sales”

Worry-free short sales!! Best describes the services from Marco Clavijo of The Clavijo Team. These days there are very limited resources you can trust. When you’re facing foreclosure, and have nowhere to turn, you can definitely turn to Marco. I am a very skeptical person and don’t trust many so call professionals in the housing business but when I met Marco, he assured me that he would take care of all the ins and outs of the short sale. And indeed he did! Although the banks were tough, this man remained true to his words. I would recommend him to all of my Colleagues and family members. This is an emotional but happy testimony from Tamara Narcisse

 Ingrid & Charles Baker – “The results were extraordinary”

To whom it may concern,

We would like to take this time to thank Marco Clavijo for his diligence and efficient work efforts. His knowledge and strong work ethic resulted in a successful short sale for us. We were in the thongs of financial hardship with this property. Marco was referred to us, and the results were extraordinary.

Marco was instrumental in assisting us with our needs, advising us every step of the way, and his reassurance and display of his knowledge of these matters, put us both at ease.

I would not hesitate in recommending Marco to anyone else with similar issues. Our belief is that they will experience the same success we did. Thank you again.

 Ivette B – “Outstanding service is an understatement”


I want to express my deepest gratitude for your assistance with the sale of my investment property. Through the process, I said thank you many times for being available to answer my questions, for timely call backs, for coming to me during work hours to pick up documents necessary to avoid delays, for providing status updates and for your overall professionalism. To say that you provided outstanding service is an understatement, and this real estate transaction wouldn’t be complete without a formal, written THANK YOU (definitely not the last one you will hear from me).

Your expertise in the real estate industry is evident you explained the sale process with the utmost knowledge, keeping me informed about potential outcomes, whether good or bad. There was no doubt that you knew what you were doing and that I was in good, honest hands.

Aside from your exceptional service and extensive knowledge, you made me feel at ease like a friend would and that is priceless. Like many Americans, I purchased a property during the height of the real estate boom, never thinking that years later, I would have to sell it for less than half of what I paid. It was very stressful for me considering I had worked so hard to maintain a high credit score. While you explained the short-term negative effects, you constantly reminded me of my long-term goals and reinforced that this is something I would recoup from. It felt good to hear your reassurance.

If anyone ever asks you for a reference, please give them my name and number. I will gladly help them make the best decision they can make for any real estate transaction – work with Marco!!!

 Warm regards,

Ivette B


Lisette – “Personal Attention”

To Whom It May Concern,

The service and personal attention I received from Marco & Jem Clavijo was exceptional and unexpected from a Realtor! The excellent service was so great to receive and relieved a lot of stress off myself. The work that was also contributed by the law firm was top notch. They are truly a high-caliber team. Their knowledge of the local market and mortgage loans helped me in the short-sale process of my home. After patiently working with the banks, Marco Clavijo made sure I got the best settlement for the sale of my home. Also, I am very pleased that he met my goal of selling the house within a certain time frame.

Regardless of whether you are buying or selling, I would highly recommend Marco & Jem Clavijo to help you in any life changing move. I could not have asked for a better Realtor to guide me through the process.

 Jacqueline  – The Dynamic Duo”

To whom it may concern:

I have to begin my saying that out of the number of people that called me to try and help me with short sale the only person I can honestly say I ever really considered working with was Mr. Marco Clavijo. From the moment we spoke over the phone he has been nothing but a gentleman, forthcoming and informative. When I had the opportunity to meet him in person I have to admit he and Jem made a very big impression on me. They were both very cordial, on time and made every effort to accommodate me in my moment of need. When I met the dynamic duo I was in the midst of big financial worries and by the time I left our meeting I have to say I felt like a weight had been lifted off my shoulder and you know that little feeling you get in the pit of your stomach that lets you know you made the right decision that is how I felt as I drove away and turned my problems over to them. From the moment they began working with me they were true to their word. Every time they told me something was going to happen it did. I never felt mislead or misinformed on the contrary I felt like I had nothing to worry about. I was equally impressed with their associates Title Law & Foreclosure Solutions. They all worked diligently to get my property sold and despite the circumstances of the short sale, Jem and Marco held my hand and made me feel comfortable and confident with the process. I would have to say I would work with them again in a heartbeat, so much so that I recommended a close friend to Marco and I have heard nothing but good things.

I want to end by saying thank you all for your hard work, dedication and attention to detail. It was all these things that made this a tough but enjoyable process. It is because of their efforts that I am back on the right path and on the road to financial recovery. I highly recommend the services of  Marco and Jem  Clavijo  they are professionals that are true to their word and in this business that is very important.


A very satisfied customer,

Jacqueline A
