I was born in a very small town in Cuba. My father died when I was just 18 years old, with him being the sole provider for the family we were left struggling to put food on the table. I remember standing in the kitchen looking at my mother not knowing what to do. A month after he passed, I started working in an Ice factory, and my town’s Sugar Mill as a Welder’s Assistant making only $5 to $7 per month. I had to start looking for other ways to support my mother, so I heard new Hotels were being built in Cayo Coco; which lead me to the idea to pursue a career in the hospitality industry. I learned to do everything in the industry to my fullest potential, from washing dishes to waiting tables to bartending and making Cuban’s famous Mojitos. I was able to support my mother, and also make more than the average Cuban…..but when you live in a Communist country everything you own could be taken away, so I decided to leave and come to Canada to pursue a better life.
When I arrive in Canada it was a dream come true. There were so many opportunities right at your fingers tips. Everything I dreamt of, I put them in motion with determination and with no limitations.
Coming to Toronto with experience in the hospitality industry, I started working in restaurants. A few years later, my General Manager asked me to help him open up his own restaurant with the offer of being a partner. There I met my beautiful wife who I later married, and started a family with. One day while driving home, she tells me that I should try a new career in real estate, given my background in customer service, and my personality, I would make a great Realtor. And the rest as they say it is history.
Helping people buy and sell Real Estate has been one of the best decisions I have ever made. I focused my business on helping people, whether is selling, buying ,or leasing we are here to do whatever it takes get the job done with the best results possible. It doesn’t matter the size of the deal, the only thing it matters is what the client’s needs are.
