I was born in a tiny town in Cuba. My father died when I was just 18 years old; with him being the sole provider for the family, we were 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 as a Welder's Assistant in an Ice factory and my town's Sugar Mill, 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 led me 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 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 arrived 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 restaurant with the offer of being a partner. I met my beautiful wife, whom I later married, and started a family. One day while driving home, she told me that I should try a new career in real estate; given my background in customer service and personality, I would make a great Realtor. And the rest, as they say, 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 it is selling, buying, or leasing, we are here to do whatever it takes to get the job done with the best results possible. It doesn't matter the size of the deal; the only thing it matters is the client's needs.
