Entrepreneur / Teacher / Speaker / Columbia Two Master’s
Seventeen years of experience in the real estate industry, background in project management, financial and market analysis, appraisals, consulting, marketing, brokerage, business plan development, teaching courses, capital raising, architecture and development.
Have been involved in several real estate sectors: residential, office, retail, industrial, student housing and data centers.
Half of my professional experience has been as an entrepreneur, which has helped me learn all aspects of starting a business, managing capital, operating and growing the business, use resources efficiently, but most of all, be a team player. It has helped me build character and resilience.
The other half of my professional experience has been working at transnational companies like Hines and Hewlett Packard, where I have learned the benefits of efficient corporate structures, which enable complex real estate projects to operate at peak performance.
I am a native Spanish speaker, with fluency in English and medium level of French.
I lived in New York City for two years, while studying two master degrees at Columbia University, one in Advanced Architectural Design, the other in Real Estate Development.
Have worked / lived in New york City, Mexico City, Beijing, Milan and Paris.
Managed above USD $ 650 million in all types of real estate transactions.
I've given conferenes to hundreds of people obtaining the best satisfaction rating on several real estate summits I have taken part of.
Teaching is my passion, I have been doing it for more than 7 years at several universities, both at graduate and undergraduate levels. It is very meaningful to me when my students tell me my courses had a positive impact in their lives.
I think most world problems would be solved if all the people in the world had access to quality education. Through sharing knowledge, which I try to create with the highest level of excellence, I strive to offer my little contribution to make the world a little bit better.
