Meet Miguel W. Maria, P.A.
Miguel Maria was born in Colombia and moved to the United States in 2001 at the age of 20, in pursuit of a better future. He initially took a job working at a cafeteria in a Miami hotel. Noticing construction taking off in 2002 he looked for a way into the real estate industry and found work with investors who were purchasing, remodeling, and selling single family homes in the Tampa Bay area.
Miguel immediately fell in love with the business, and quickly learned from the investors who became mentors to him. They saw his potential and within a short time he was managing over 150 properties in Tampa Bay, Orlando, and Jacksonville.His responsibilities included hiring contractors, managing rehab projects, and managing rental units, many of which were leased through subsidized housing programs such as Section 8.
Buying, remodeling, and selling real estate has now become Miguel’s primary source of income. Since entering the business, Miguel has been involved in more than 200 rehab projects in markets across Florida. These projects have ranged from simple condos and townhouses to complicated $100,000+ rehabs of houses and multifamily properties.
Miguel is a top producing real estate broker, and achieved the highest sales award over four consecutive years during his time at Weichert Realtors, Best Beach in South Florida. He is also a state certified residential appraiser and by now joining Century 21 KoRes Commercial division Miguel will be able to offer a more in depth experience and knowledge for the benefit of his clients allowing them to have more options when it comes to real estate investing.
Miguel’s top skills include finding distressed properties, quickly evaluating rehab costs, accurately projecting re-sale value after rehab, and negotiation. He also excels at building the right team for each rehab project. In his free time, Miguel enjoys spending time with his family, traveling, and practicing CrossFit, soccer and triathlons.
