• OUR COMMITMENT •  

We are committed to packaging and promoting both Miami Beach and Miami-Dade County investment and development opportunities internationally. At a time when the real estate development industry as a whole is dramatically different from what it was just a few years ago, the capital to rebuild Miami and its Beaches is coming largely from outside the traditional industry sources.

We view ourselves as fiduciaries, operating as a closely aligned extension of the client, and protecting the client's interest as it were our own. Close client relationships are of the highest importance to us and are continually strengthened through integrity, enthusiasm and hard work. We value these relationships and are proud of the "personal touch" which we are able to afford each of our clients.

We take pride in providing new and creative approaches to real estate acquisition, resolution capital, investment, and management needs in the complex and changeable business environment.

Luigi Mercurio

The son of a renowned Italian architect, Mr. Mercurio spent the first part of his life in Italy, where he studied arts, literature, philosophy, music, architecture and computer sciences. This last interest brought him to the United States, where he has lived since 1993.

As a well respected telecommunications expert, he spent several years traveling around the world. Eventually, he decided to settle in the Gold Coast of Florida and to give up constant traveling for an activity that would still allow him to meet new people and at the same time spend more time with his classical guitar and his extensive collection of music recordings from all over the world.

Mr. Mercurio specializes in Commercial and Investment Properties in Dade County and takes special pride in locating the right properties for his clients. He is fluent in English, Spanish and, of course, Italian.
