The Miami Signature Homes Mission
One thing I pride myself on throughout my long tenure in this business is a commitment to client service above all else. I have structured my entire business around that mission. This means that my team is relatively small compared to my sales volume. That has been important in keeping relationships with clients at a very direct level. Myself, Tania, and Vicky (collectively the Miami Signature Homes Sales Team) each maintain strong personal connections and professional relationships with all of our clients, many of which have been with us for decades.
Because of this personal level of service, we are able to devote individual attention and care to every home sale or search. Assistants are great but we make sure our principals are the people solely responsible for returning important calls or emails 24/7 365, conducting walk-throughs, and guiding your closing process. The top producing agent who does the listing appointment is running point on your deal, experts are always on tap to identify possible obstacles and strategize your ideal outcome.
This hand holding imperative is a differentiator for our team. You are our top priority and you stay that way long after we sign a contract.
If you’re passionate about white glove treatment throughout one of the most important financial experiences of your life - call us. We’d like to chat more about the dynamics of our unique team which has generated countless sales in the South Florida area since 1994. We look forward to collaborating with you in achieving your goal.
