UM Law Testimonials


I had an absolutely wonderful experience working with Elite Real Estate Associates. I was based in North Florida at the time and only had the opportunity to apartment-hunt in Miami two days before making a final decision. Jem and Marco helped me to gather a long list of places to see during my desired time frame. Marco spent a full day and a half showing me around until I found a unit that I truly could consider a potential home. He even recommended a few places that I had not previously considered- I ended up loving the area and got my first choice apartment there. Jem was excellent at communicating with me all details related to the lease and becoming a tenant. Marco and Jem both went out of their way to ensure that I found a place that fulfilled 100% of my requirements. I am now settled in my new home and couldn’t be happier! I would confidently recommend Elite Real Estate Associates to anyone looking for a professional, thorough, and friendly team!

Marco and his agency were amazing! I am a UM Law student moving down to Miami from NY, and Marco and Jem made everything so great and easy. Marco spent the whole day with me showing apartments exactly like I wanted and at the price I wanted. Once I decided, Marco had the official offer ready to go within a few hours and our offer was accepted and I GOT MY PLACE. Thanks Marco and Jem!

From start to finish, Jem and Marco did a great job! Marco listened to our concerns and requirements and zeroed in on the appropriate properties. We only had 2 days to find an apartment for our daughter who was moving to Miami to attend UM Law. We live in N. Florida and were not familiar at all with the Miami market. Our primary concern was safety, cleanliness and convenience. Marco showed us every available  unit we requested and then took the liberty to show us some units in an area we were not considering. Thank goodness he did! We quickly found a great unit and Marco and Jem worked out the details and our daughter couldn’t be happier; and, my husband and I can sleep at night knowing she is in such a great building and area.

Marco was patient and helpful at every turn. We never felt rushed or pressured.
Jem is a superior communicator, at every step of the way, including final inspection/walk-through. She is 100% professional and always kept us informed, leaving nothing to chance and thereby avoiding any possible problems.

We couldn’t recommend Jem and Marco more highly. They are a terrific team!

I’ve worked with Jem & Marco three times over the past five years, and they have delivered every time. Yet, this is my first review.

I wrote Jem on a Saturday night telling her i needed to move into a new apartment within 15 days. By that Monday morning, i was provided with a specifically tailored list of properties meeting my requirements. By Tuesday, i was looking at three properties with Marco.

By Thursday (less than a week later), i had a contract signed in a great 1BR apartment with great amenities. The best part? I was awarded the apartment, despite putting in an offer lower than a competitor. The reason for this ? Jem & Marcos’ reputation for great clients, and how they packaged my materials to show that i would be a great tenant.

I will be using them when i ultimately decides to buy a place!

Marco proved to be exactly what I was looking for in a realtor: professional, knowledgable, and genuinely concerned about my needs. I’m transitioning to Coral Gables for school and he made a stressful process much easier. 5/5 for a reason!

John H.



Marco Clavijo has helped me find 2 places to rent now and both times it was a very pleasant and professional experience. He has helped me negotiate a better price and is always available to help and answer questions. I strongly recommend him and will continue to use him in the future .

Nicolas S.



Marco is amazing! He’s so knowledgeable and works hard to find the best deal to fit your every need! As an out of state law student,  I was already super stressed out, but Marco made the process of finding a place so easy. He was highly recommended by the University of Miami Law School and I can see why. He was willing to work to accommodate my schedule. On our tour he made me feel completely at ease and there were so many options to chose from. Thanks to Marco and his diligent team, I have a great apartment to call home!

Gabrielle W. 



I contacted Marco when I found out I would be transferring to the University of Miami School of Law.  Transfer law students have very tight deadlines to work with, as we do not receive our acceptances until about one month before school starts.  After reaching out to Marco, we set up a time for a phone conference on a Sunday afternoon to discuss what I wanted in an apartment. That evening, I received an email with a list of properties fitting my criteria, accompanied with photos of each unit. (It is also worth noting that I was moving to Miami from South Carolina, so it was not as simple as getting in the car to view each unit in person.) The following day, Marco went to each unit that I had marked as potentials and videoed them, so that I could see each unit in real time. He videoed each room in the unit, as well as went into detail about each property and the surrounding neighborhood. He even videoed the neighborhoods so you could see what near each apartment! Within 48 hours, I had chosen an apartment and we had submitted an offer, which was also accepted the same day!!
Marco listened to all of my requests and needs. He is extremely professional, responsive, personable, knowledgeable, hardworking, and truly has the best interests of his clients in mind. My experience with him was outstanding and he was an absolute pleasure to work with. I could not have found a home in such a short time without Marco’s expertise. I would highly recommend him to any student, or anyone, looking for a home in the Miami area!

Heather M.



Marco is the man. I was in a tight spot because I needed to find a property to move into on short notice. Marco found places within my price range, in the location I wanted, and with the features I was looking for. It was a pleasure working with Marco and Elite Real Estate Associates. If you need help finding a place and are tired of the stress and hassle of calling a million places, Marco is your man. I would suggest him to anyone that needs help finding their next home

Daniel W.



Marco went way beyond the call of duty!  He spent time sending us potential options, helped us to weigh the pros and cons.  When we flew down for the weekend to look at our choices in person, he showed us around and helped ease our minds.  I can say my daughter is happy with her apartment.  Her dad and I are happy with the choice as well.  Thanks to Marco for making this a smooth and easy process.  This is the only realtor you need to contact!

Tammy M.



Working with Marco from Elite exceeded all of my expectations.  My daughter was relocating from New Jersey to attend Miami Law.  We were not familiar with the area but Marco took the time to sit down with my daughter and I to determine her needs in a rental unit.  He consistently communicated with us during the process and answered all of our questions and concerns while completing the rental documentation.  He visited the apartment several times prior to the move to make sure everything was in order and even met us on move in day to make sure things went smoothly.  I am pleased to say that my daughter is thrilled with her apartment.  Marco is a true professional.  I would not hesitate to recommend him for any type of real estate matter!

Deborah R.



Working with Marco was a phenomenal experience.  He helped us assess our needs and price range, and secure a unit that fit both.  I worked with Marco remotely from New York prior to moving down to Miami and he maintained clear and timely lines of communication and made the entire process quick and easy.  I would recommend Marco without reservation to all looking for a great service and experience in Miami.

Sam S.



I worked with Marco over the course of a couple months and was beyond pleased with my experience.

He blocked out 6 hours of his schedule to show me units that matched my preferences but wind up spending more than 8 hours showing me units as some complexes that were typically out of my price range were running specials.

Marco is professional, friendly, and resourceful. I highly recommend working with him to find your perfect place.

Michael H.



Marco has now assisted in 2 of my moves. Both times he has been a perfect example of dedication and professionalism. Marco is extremely patient and will work tirelessly to find the exact property you imagine living in. In fact, the one I ended up renting far exceeded any of the expectations that I had.

Nicholas D.


Upon finishing the Miami Law School bus tour in April visiting various communities, I immediately knew Marco was the person I wanted to entrust with making sure my move from New England to Miami would be without hiccups. Marco is the epitome of a professional, conducts himself with nothing but class, and is a walking encyclopedia of the area. Furthermore, he is more than just a realtor. He is your advocate, respectfully questioning the respective owner or rental community in order to make sure you get the best deal and no corners are cut. I never would have thought I would have picked a place to live in less than 24 hours upon finishing a private tour with Marco this month. There is a reason the University of Miami chooses Marco to conduct the bus tour with prospective students. He should undoubtedly be the first face new students should see to help assuage them of any concerns that come with their upcoming move. He is “the” guy, and he actually makes the whole process enjoyable.

Richard M.


Marco remained committed throughout the entire process of finding my roommates and I a condo rental in the building that we wanted. Marco always takes the time to make sure there is clear communication. We are very happy with our unit.

Michael K.



Before starting law school at UM this fall, I had never been to Miami before or known much about it. Marco actually led a housing tour for us all at admitted student’s weekend, and I contacted the team shortly after because of their immense knowledge and experience with the area. He worked with me before, during, and after my move to make sure everything was going well and exactly how I wanted it to be. I absolutely couldn’t be happier with my apartment, all thanks to Marco and Elite Real Estate!

Nicole O.



Marco was absolutely amazing. He organized everything while I was out of town. He took videos of multiple units, managed the paperwork, and even picked up the keys. He answered emails promptly, even on weekends, and I couldn’t be happier with the experience.

Catherine O.



Marco helped us find exactly what we were looking for. He was fantastic to work with throughout the entire process, and made relocating to Miami much easier. I would recommend his services without hesitation.

Hunter G.



Marco was absolutely wonderful from the start to finish of our experience. He showed us places that exactly fit our criteria and price range and we fell in love with multiple units over the course of the day of showings. Marco was professional, easy to get along with, and genuinely was looking out for our best interests. We moved to FL from MA and he made the transition so much easier by offering to help pick up our keys and come by and check on us when we arrived. He went above and beyond throughout and I would recommend him to anyone in a heartbeat!

Sue S.



Marco couldn’t have been more wonderful!  He organized the day taking our family to see ten beautiful properties.  He provided invaluable insider information that we would never have gotten on our own.  Marco helped our son choose an amazing first home away from home and then worked magic when the first condo fell through.  We were really impressed when he told us up front about the low income housing nearby and that he wouldn’t take us to see an apartment that he wouldn’t send his sister to.  I only wish we had a Marco in NYC!!!

Mike & Andrea U.



We worked with Marco to find a place to rent near the University of Miami for Law School. We were making the short move from Fort Lauderdale to Miami, but still were not extremely familiar with the area. Marco was so helpful in taking our wants, needs, and expectations and guiding us to the properties that met those within our price range. We would recommend him to friends and family if they planned on moving down to Miami.

Jacob S.



I can’t say enough good things about my experience with Elite Real Estate Associates. Marco was absolutely amazing. He was always friendly and professional and made the entire process from start to finish easy and enjoyable for me. This was my first time renting an apartment and he was so helpful and patient answering all my questions and communicating with me constantly throughout the whole process. I ended up with the exact apartment I wanted and I couldn’t be happier. I would absolutely recommend Elite Real Estate Associates to anyone in need of a realtor in Miami, you definitely will not be disappointed! Thank you so much for all your help!

Kristen H.


I moved down to Miami for school, and Marco was so helpful. I could not have asked for a better experience looking for an apartment in a new place. He is very communicative, and he responds to all emails/calls/texts. I love the spot I ended up in, and he even checked in after the move in. I would definitely recommend this Real Estate office to anyone!

Kimi R.


Working with Jem and Marco at Elite Real Estate Associates could not have been a better experience for my first time looking for a place on my own!
From the get-go, Jem was extremely communicative and helped inform me on the whole process of looking for, applying for, and signing on an apartment. Her husband and partner Marco met us for the apartment tour a few weeks later with a whole line-up of apartments around the area my roommate and I preferred to live in – the selection was impressively extensive, all apartments well under our budget, and all very beautiful. We ended up finding the best apartment we could have imagined, and with Marco’s help, put a deposit on it the very same day. When it was time to move in, Jem sent out emails to my roommate and myself offering help with the move-in and wishing us the best in our new home.
In all, I was sincerely happy with Jem and Marco’s services. I would recommend anyone to contact them for help in finding, not just a new place, but a new home – they are the best, and you won’t be disappointed. Thanks again to them for introducing us to our new home!

Cristina C.



I moved to Miami in the summer of 2016 to start my PhD program at UM in the fall, and one of the other graduate students in my department recommended Marco’s services to my roommate and me. He did NOT disappoint. He worked with the two of us months before our move-in date to schedule a time at which we could meet to view some properties, giving us his recommendations while still taking into account our needs and concerns. When we met with him, he was able to show us at least one unit at each of the properties in which we were interested within one afternoon. While this may sound rushed at first, it in fact is a testament to Marco’s efficiency and work ethic, as we finished the day feeling both knowledgeable about the properties of interest and grateful for his services. We are highly satisfied with the condo that we chose in South Miami, which is both beautiful and within the original price range that we gave Marco. He always responds reliably to texts, emails, and phone calls, which makes me all the more confident that I will come to him again if I am ever in need of a realtor in Miami.

Jake B.



My son met Marco at the UM Law accepted students day and knew that he wanted to work with him to find an apartment. We made plans to fly down and meet with him for one or two days depending on how long it took us to find the right property. Marco was excellent from the beginning recommending locations and buildings that would be suitable for a 1L. He is extremely knowledgeable about the various neighborhoods and made sure to show us enough options so that we could narrow down the choices. As a parent not familiar with the area, it made me feel good knowing that my son would be living in a safe area, close to campus and in an environment that would be a mix of graduate students and young professionals. He made sure to steer us away from any building that might be overrun with noisy undergrads. Communication with Marco was excellent leading up to our appointment and while we were there. He went the extra mile by going back to the complex we liked to take a video of an apartment that we couldn’t get into and we ended up taking it. Marco will be our go to guy if and when my son decides to buy a condo or move to another location in the Miami area. Marco is a true professional and a really nice guy. It was a pleasure to work with him.

My name is Octavia M. Green and I recently moved into a condo in Downtown Dadeland.  Marco Clavijo & Elite Real Estate Associates served as my real estate agent & Brokerage firm.  Marco and I have had a working relationship.  He helped me find my first apartment about three years ago.  I felt comfortable using Marco again this time around because of his superior customer service and his professionalism.  He knew exactly what I liked.  Thanks to Marco, I now live in a comfortable apartment, close to my job in an extremely convenient location. I highly recommend Marco & Elite REA to anyone looking for a place to live, buy or sell.  He is extremely professional and pays close attention to what his customers want.  Additionally, he has your best interest in mind and guarantees to find you a place that’s suitable for you.  Thank you again Marco for your excellent service.  Once again, this is a job well done!


Octavia M. Green, Esq. 



Hey Marco,

Thanks again for all of your help! The second time working with you was even more flawless than the first! The fact that you were able to coordinate all of this while I was halfway around the world in China is absolutely amazing. Everything was ready for me to move straight in when I got back to the US. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience. Like I told you before, you’ve more than earned me as a repeat client. I’ll be calling you whenever I need to move again!

Christopher H


The Clavijo Team has been a great pleasure to work with.  After deciding to move to Miami for law school I knew I had to find a realtor to help navigate this new city. After a recommendation from the University to work with Jem and Marco I reached out to them and definitely do not regret it. The Clavijo team is very professional, knowledgeable and patient. Every step of the way they listened attentively to our wants and needs for our apartment and worked efficiently to accommodate our needs when plans changed.  They are wonderful about communicating with their clients and making sure that every step is done correctly. Jem made our move very easy and stress free. I have recommended her and Marco to others moving down to Miami and will continue to let others know about their great work.

Deepti O


Working with Jem has been such a pleasure. Being from out of state we had no idea where to live. We gave her our requirements for the type of apartment we wanted and Jem consistently sent us ones to look at that exactly matched it. We absolutely love the one we went with. We definitely recommend her for anyone looking for a place in the Miami area.

Lauren P & Ketan G


My experience with Marco and the Clavijo team was great! Having never been to Miami before my move-in day, I was very unfamiliar with the area. Marco was very helpful in informing me of all of the different areas of Miami, and providing me with great property selections. I was able to find the perfect home with Marco’s help, and he answered any questions I had during the process. I would recommend him to any of my friends or classmates.

Upon accepting my seat at the UM Law School, I was provided with a list of realtors that had previously assisted UM students. I chose The Clavijo Team based on their professionally and modernly detailed website. I did not regret it. It was then March, and my roommate and I were aiming to move in the summer. Jem immediately began sending us options within a small radius from campus and within our budget. When we flew down in April, Jem very graciously picked us up and dedicated plenty of her time to our search. She was very informative of the properties, and knowledgable about every day life in the area as well. We ended up moving in July 1, and we are very happy with our new home.

It was never difficult to get a hold of Jem, and she was very responsive when needed. I appreciated the respect our search received. She was more than helpful every step of the way, even after the lease was signed. I highly recommend the Clavijo Team for their professional and thorough process and amiability.

Jem is a dream of an agent – knowledgeable, professional, reliable, and truly invested in her clients. She understood immediately what I was looking for and took the time to show me various neighborhoods and buildings, since I would have to decide on an apartment while still living out of town. I knew that I could rely on her to find me perfect place, and she absolutely delivered. I ended up being on vacation when the paperwork was going back and forth, and the fact that it got done at all is entirely due to her efforts and may qualify her for saint-hood. I chose to rent at first since I wasn’t sure if I would be in Miami long-term, but the city is certainly growing on me, and if I decide to buy I can’t imagine choosing a better agent.

I was referred to Marco by a school friend who spoke very highly of him. I now understand why. From the first phone call to the last email, Marco would always be sure to respond quickly and appropriately. I never once had trouble getting a hold of him or communicating with him. He was able to locate specific houses (we have a dog and needed a fence), and he came through for us. He did a wonderful and thorough job for us all around. Would recommend him to anyone and everyone looking for a real estate agent.

I would whole-heartedly recommend Marco Clavijo’s services to all my family and friends. After receiving thirty days’ notice that we could not renew our lease, my roommate and I were desperate to find a new housing arrangement. Although we were working with a different real estate agent, we were quickly losing hope that we would find a place within our budget that would be move-in ready on such short notice. After countless un-returned emails and lost rental opportunities, I decided to find another agent. Marco came with the highest recommendations.

I cannot overstate the differences I saw between Marco and other agents I’d contacted. Within a matter of hours, I was presented with many properties that were perfectly suited to my budget and very particular taste. I was truly impressed with Marco’s professionalism, and anyone who is serious about finding a new home will appreciate how thorough he is with compiling all the necessary documents upfront so as to ensure a smooth bidding process. This was particularly helpful to me as I work past business hours, which created some obstacles in the process. Marco’s attentiveness and reliability are unmatched, and he always promptly responded to emails and phone calls even on weekends and evenings.

Marco helped us every step of the way, from making appointments, navigating the application process, and jumping through hoops with complicated association procedures. My roommate and I are in love with our new home, and are thankful to have had such great help finding it.

My wife and I were moving to Miami from Kansas City so that I could begin Law School. Between my wife and I, we were only able to visit Miami twice before moving there, leaving us with the issue of doing all our apartment search and paperwork remotely. Because the process of finding a place to live was so different than in the Midwest, we would not have been able to move to Miami were it not for Jem.

We were continuously given email updates with new listings in our preferred area. When we saw one that we liked, Jem was quick to email us a video tour of the unit, so that we could experience as much of the place as possible without actually being there. She was always quick to answer any questions we had as well. Anytime that we needed her, she was available by phone or email.

When it came time to actually signing leases and submitting paperwork, Jem helped us move as quickly as possible. There were so many papers to sign, but whenever we needed Jem to get a signature, she was always fast at getting us the right documents and information. I would highly recommend Jem Clavijo to anyone that needs help with a property search whether they are from the Miami area or out of town.

I am writing to express my satisfaction with the work of Empire Realty in helping me find my new apartment.  Recently, I moved into a condo in South Miami. Because of the dedication, patience, and devotion to excellent service shown by Marco Clavijo, I was able to find an ideal condo.

From the time I contacted Marco, he was sincere in making sure that my apartment fit my needs.  He was very devoted in ensuring that I found an apartment that was secure, safe, and comfortable and in a location near the University of Miami.  He displayed extreme patience as I was unsure whether I would be looking for a one bedroom or a two bedroom.  However, he took the time to show me both places.  Additionally, seeing how I am not as familiar with the area, it helped to have him assist me in this manner.

I am very satisfied with the help and the assistance of Marco Clavijo. I greatly appreciate all of his help in this process and I would recommend him to anyone looking to move in the local area.  He displayed nothing but professionalism and devotion throughout the entire process and it is only because of him that I am living in my current location.  I greatly appreciate all of his help.

My son, Alex, will be a first year law student at the University of Miami this fall. We were so pleased with the assistance that Jem Clavijo, a Miami realtor, provided when he was looking for an apartment that I asked Jem if I could write this letter on her behalf.

Jem was, in every respect, helpful and professional.  Her assistance started before we went to Miami to preview apartments.  She made sure we had all of the right forms and paperwork to smooth the process.  She knew what our budget was and kept within it. Although we had visited Miami before, we were not familiar with the various neighborhoods, nor with the rental market.  Jem asked all the right questions and took us to the three areas that we identified, with her help, as possible locations for an apartment.

When my son narrowed down his search to a single condominium building, Jem made sure we had all of the required Association documents to streamline the application process.  She continued to forward listings to us for units in the complex that met our parameters, and she previewed several of them for us.  Jem even went so far as to take video of units when we were unable to return to Miami to see the individual apartments.  In fact, the apartment that my son ultimately rented was chosen from a video that Jem took.

Jem’s help did not stop there.  When the apartment was secured for my son, she met us there with the key and went through the entire apartment with us to make sure that everything was satisfactory.  There were a few minor things that needed attention, and Jem took pictures of them and reported them to the apartment owner/realtor, subsequently following up with us to make sure that the repairs were made.

I highly recommend Jem Clavijo to any family looking for an apartment for their student in Miami, and indeed to anyone looking for property in Miami.  She went the extra mile for us at every turn, and she made what could have been a challenging process relatively simple.  I know that you will be as impressed as I was with her knowledge of the market, her professionalism, and her follow through.

Jem and Marco are simply the best. I worked with them last year and I definitely had to come back for their business once again. My roommate and I had various needs, including transportation requirements, high floor requests, and closet space needs. After meeting with us they knew exactly what we were looking for and created a comprehensive list of properties that suited us perfectly. Jem & Marco know the high-rise buildings like the backs of their hands. They made themselves available to see properties at times that worked around our school schedules. I have personally referred them to many friends and have yet to hear about a negative experience under their watch. I can’t thank them enough for the great job!

I moved to Miami to attend the University Of Miami School Of Law. Upon being accepted, I asked the university what was the easiest way to secure a living situation for the upcoming year. They immediately referred me to Marco. When I visited the school in early April, I also visited with Marco to look at various properties throughout the South Miami are. Before our initial visit, I spent some time on the phone with Marco discussing what my particular wants and needs for an apartment consisted of, and what are of Miami I was trying to live in.

When I met with Marco, he had compiled a list of ten different properties to look at, all of which had been compiled within a short, two-week time frame. As I looked at the apartments, I was very happy with everything Marco found. I can’t think of a single complaint that I had with any of the pieces of property we looked at, and Marco made sure that everything I had requested was found within the apartment or apartment complex.

I have been living in one of the apartment complexes Marco showed me for six months now, and I couldn’t be happier. Everything I requested in our initial conversation was accounted for and taken care of. Having Marco as a my realtor made my transition to Miami stress-free, enjoyable, and exciting. I would be sure to refer anyone to Marco first and foremost, without hesitation.

Marco and Jem Clavijo at Real Estate Empire are truly fantastic at providing service to those are in the market to rent or buy property. I recently moved to the South Florida are and was completely over my head because I did not know the area at all and I was unfamiliar with any buildings or pricing of certain areas. I had the opportunity to meet Marco during a housing fair, as well as saw a reference for him in a housing booklet; so I decided to give his company a try to see if I could find a property I would like. I was completely blown away by Marco and Jem’s professionalism and how much I enjoyed getting to know the South Florida area with them. They were very knowledgeable of different areas of South Florida as well as what certain buildings had to offer their tenants. They also adequately prepared my roommate and I for what each building would and would not allow as well as the environments that each building was in, so that we could make the best decisions for what we were looking for. I did not only find a building I like but a building that I absolutely love and a condo that is amazing. I don’t think that I would have been in as great of a condo as I am now without their assistance. I highly recommend the Clavijos and Real Estate Empire for your real estate needs.

Jordan Marts H



I would like to personally thank you for your professional services during our search for the perfect place to live during Law School and Graduate School at the University of Miami. I truly appreciate your willingness to go above and beyond your obligations as a Real Estate agent, even taking phone calls and e-mails after hours and always responding very promptly to any and all questions and concerns that we had. Instead of showing us properties in a single location, your approach of providing a thorough tour of several different properties coupled with your informative insights about each area were invaluable in our search for a place. We will surely enlist your services in the future if we do choose to move (although the Condominium you found for us is perfect!), and will recommend your services to friends and family if they choose to move to the Miami area. Thanks again!


Eric L



I just wanted to shoot you an e-mail thanking you for helping us out with our condo. You were incredibly helpful, and the epitome of professionalism. The rental process was incredibly smooth, and I couldn’t be more pleased with where we ended up. I will be recommending you to the law school, and to all future contacts looking for residence in Miami. Thanks again.

Marco Clavijo made finding the ideal apartment that fit my lifestyle and my budget a reality! Had someone told me a year ago that I would be living in a luxury apartment community with a gorgeous view, a rooftop infinity pool and a new gym in a safe, residential community – for a very decent price – I never would have believed it.

Miami is completely new to me. I had only been to the city a handful of times on weekend trips. About six months before my move in date, I reached out to a handful of realtors. Some asked me to check back in a few months, and others did not respond at all. Marco was the only realtor to respond promptly and ask for a phone meeting to better understand my needs. Since that call, our partnership has been very successful.

Soon after that call, I flew down to Miami for a weekend. Marco knew that I wanted to see a lot of apartments, but he also kept in mind that I wanted to have time to relax, as well. We were able to fit in a large number of apartment’s visits into one afternoon. I left Miami know that I was in good hands.

A month before my move in date, Marco got the ball rolling. He was giving me constant updates on the best available apartments that were within my budget. When he saw my current apartment, he knew that it was very me. And it was. I feel so lucky to live here.

The paperwork process was absolutely flawless. Marco was available at any hour of any day for questions and concerns. However, I saw Marco at his best after the sale. I have emailed him endless questions: How do I reach my landlord? What is the best way to get to a certain destination without hitting traffic? what are the best nightclubs? He answers each question which as much care and punctuality as he would before the sale.

Marco truly cares about his clients before, after and during the sale. I would recommend him to any family member, friend or acquaintance!

Marco Clavijo is by far the best realtor I have ever had the pleasure of doing business with. While preparing for my move to the Miami area, I spoke to other realtors and heard promises to help me look for a place to live, but would never hear from them again. Marco, on the other hand, kept contact with me for many months before my move. Once I told him the locations I was interested in, I received a more accurate view of real estate prices from him than I had from anyone else which helped me adjust my budget to be more realistic for the Miami area. The email listings Marco set up for me to get automatically once properties were listed was extremely useful in helping decide what I would want in a place. I was able to find exactly what I was looking for, and I would do business with him again. I have already referred a few of my friends to him to get assistance with their moves and would recommend anyone else I know to him. Marco is definitely a top notch.

To Whom It May Concern,

I recently moved to Miami from out of state. Working with Marco has been a tremendous help in facilitating my moves and beyond what is necessary to make his clients feel comfortable while ensuring they are making the right choice, His honest and hardworking nature making him a pleasure to work with and I highly recommend him to anyone looking for housing in the Miami area.
