I was born and raised in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico but have been proud to call Madison home since 2002. I discovered my entrepreneurial spirit at an early age, and opened my own restaurant a couple of blocks from the ocean in 1996. This is also where I discovered my love for providing (and experiencing!) top-notch customer service. I met Sara in Mexico, and we moved to Madison with our young son in 2002. While I might never forgive her for the winters, I do love the community here.
When I first came to Madison, I entered banking to get a greater understanding of the financial industry. While it was a good fit for my detail-oriented brain, Sara and I hoped that we could create a healthier balance of work/life/family with me joining her in real estate. I brought my financial savvy and caring client services to the Alvarado Group as a licensed real estate consultant in 2006, and now serve as both an agent and as the company’s Principal Broker. I enjoy serving both buyers and sellers, and have experience in commercial real estate. I love working with people, and nothing can match the thrill of helping someone find the perfect home.
I am a lifelong learner, and am constantly working to be able to better serve my clients. In addition to being an Accredited Buyer’s Representative (ABR) and having a Green designation, I have also taken courses on commercial investment. I am currently fulfilling a long-time dream of getting my degree in business from Edgewood College.
I stay involved with the Hispanic community in Madison through my work with the Madison-Tepa Sister City Project, and am a previous board member of the Latino Chamber of Commerce. While full-time work and school don’t leave me much time for fun, I still make time to play soccer (now in the Old Man League!) and love watching my older son play goalie for Madison West.
