    Jack gave Luiz 5 stars out of 5
    In September 2020, my husband and I considered upgrading our condo and met with Luiz to discuss our ideal home. He immediately set up online searches for us that were relevant and productive. Despite our desire to see a lot of units before we acted, Luiz followed through on every request we made and never tired of setting up viewings and analyzing what we had seen and what to do next. We saw a lot of condos and did make a couple of offers, which involved getting and reviewing condo docs, amending contracts, negotiating difficult terms, etc. Luiz was always available and always did what he could to help us in the process, including scheduling contractors to follow up on an inspection. We bought our new condo in early 2021, and it truly fits what we were looking for when we had our first talk with Luiz. When we decided to sell our old place in the spring of 2021, we did not hesitate to give Luiz the listing. Luiz negotiated with the buyers agent to get an excellent price, and Luiz again helped us at the last minute when we were unable to remove some items from the apartment on time. We could not have asked for more patience, diligence, and advocacy in a real estate agent. We recommend Luiz without hesitation.

    Luiz was PHENOMENAL! He gets my absolute highest recommendation and endorsement! Incredible understanding of the local market, he recommended and assisted with modernization efforts which helped with a rapid sale. His tenacity and dedication to negotiating afforded me the best price for my home. Luiz immediately answered all of my questions and was available 24/7 to help me! Consummate professional and customer focused! If you are in the market to buy or sell a home, Luiz will meet all your needs and make it happen!! I am so glad he was recommended to me and I wholeheartedly recommend him to you!!

    Thank you, Eric, for being one of our top client experiences! We leveraged Coldwell Banker's RealVitalize program to spruce up the property prior to preparing all of the marketing; and it worked true to form. We had a record number of showings, and enough interest right up front to secure a great buyer! Thank you for listening to our recommendations, and helping us deliver exceptional results. Working with you has truly been an honor.

    Patrick gave Luiz 5 stars out of 5
    Let me start by saying Luiz has been my real estate agent on four occassions with exceptional results... every single time! I also recommended him to some good friends and they were equally impressed. I'm not just a repeat client - I am a huge fan. In my first experience, Luiz helped me find and purchase a waterfront condo in the Brickell area in 2015. I have since used him to find renters on three occassions for a condo I own in Brickell East - most recently in February 2020. Here are a few specific reasons why I am so appareciative to have Luiz as my agent: - only showed properties that met my very precise requirements and desires. Lined up the showings and maximized the use of my time. - raised advantages, disadvantages and questions about each property that I had not considered. - worked well with the other agents - many of whom were not operating at his high level of professionalism, punctuality or responsibility. - gave me great advice on many issues including a delay from my mortgage bank and dealing with a difficult-personality seller. The closing would have had a less favorable outcome with a lesser agent. - made the paper work easy. I am an airline pilot and I have been able to complete listing agreements, contracts and other paperwork on my smart phone while on oversea layovers. - found exceptional tenants for my rental property on three occassions. Made the showings, lease signing and closing virtually effortless for me. - superb communication skills in English, Spanish and Portuguese which has been quite useful. I recommended Luiz to some military friends and he helped them find a perfect fit for a rental property near Southcom in Doral. That is five exceptional experiences. When you find someone this good at what they do, you hold to them and recommend to them to your friends.

    Thank you Pat for the glowing review, and for regularly referring me to your friends and colleagues. Working with you over the years has always been a pleasure. Your original search was my first challenge of "things you don't find in the listings" and helped me grow as an agent, early in my career. I've learned a great deal from our transactions. You're a proactive landlord, which has produced great working relationships with your tenants, and very few surprises at the end of their leases. Can't sing your praises enough! Thanks again.

    Noreen gave Luiz 5 stars out of 5
    Luiz has been most outstanding in selling our condo. He got us almost full asking price. He is a true professional. We found him to be extremely honest, dedicated and kept us informed at all levels. He even helped negotiate for us, and navigated a complicated situation extremely well. I have never seen a real estate professional work so hard and so dedicated to doing a good job. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking to buy or sell in the Miami area.

    Mayu gave Luiz 5 stars out of 5
    I had the pleasure of being introduced to Luiz through a friend of mine and my experience working with him exceeded my highest expectations of any realtor. I had to find a place and move in within a couple of weeks and Luiz made my journey of finding one smooth and stress-free. His punctuality, kindness, and intelligence made him stand out from other realtors I've used in the past. His knowledge of the area was very useful when finding a place with the specifications I wanted and he answered everything I had concerns about quickly and in great detail. He knew what to say at the right time and what questions to ask when necessary. Real estate isn't my expertise and I couldn't have been luckier to have had someone like Luiz help me through the process knowing I could trust him to do what's best for me. Thank you so much for all you did, Luiz, it was an absolute pleasure!

    Luiz was an excellent realtor. We definitely felt he had our interests in mind and took account of our needs and wants. He understands the market and have us good insight into the things we needed to be aware of being new to the area. He's also very personable and professional. We'd definitely work with him again.

    We've worked with Luiz for 3.5 years now, and he has been fantastic! He is an extremely knowledgeable local guide offering expert insight, not only into good neighborhoods, restaurants, recreational activities, and schools, but down to the level of individual buildings. He has always gone above and beyond for us, contacting realtors/owners and finding available homes that even are not listed. He seems to have an extensive network throughout Miami. In addition, we find him extremely trustworthy, patient, and kind, which has served us well. We look forward to working with Luiz and happily referring friends/family to Luiz.

    Cecilia gave Luiz 5 stars out of 5
    After a 2 year search for the ideal home and several realtors, Luis was a God send. 2 months of working with Luis and the deal was done. His tireless, positive (while realistic) outlook combined with proactive problem solving were very reassuring. Buying a home can be overwhelming or intimidating at times. Luis' experience and professionalism put me at ease and helped me through a timely closing within my needs and wants. I would confidently recommend Luis to any friend or family member.

    Shawn gave Luiz 5 stars out of 5
    Luiz was tasked with helping me find a home close to work and in an area that would be commutable if my company were to relocate. On top of that, we needed to find a home that would allow me to bring my 75lb dog with me. Luiz worked diligently to help me find the right place in a location that was good no matter where my company moved and he helped me negotiate the price down to a much more affordable monthly payment and a backyard for my dog!

    Welcome to Miami, Shawn; I think you're going to love living here. You're in one of the "hippest" parts of town, and I am so glad we were able to "check all the boxes" on your search! Thank you for the great review, and please stay in touch!

    Luiz was a pleasure to work with when selling my property and finding a new home. His knowledge of the area, creative marketing skills, and professionalism made the process stress free. I'm very happy with the home he found for me but when it's time for a change, he will be the first person I call!

    Selling your home while still living in it can be daunting; best to keep it "visitor ready" all the time. Being flexible in allowing showings also goes a long way to helping your realtor do his or her job effectively. You did both so flawlessly that you actually spoiled me. Plus you were great to work with; I felt you took my advice and recommendations to heart all along, which made for a great partnership. Thank you for the wonderful recommendation, and for referring your friends as well!

    Hugo gave Luiz 5 stars out of 5
    Superb agent! I have used Luiz' services to buy and a couple of years later, sell a property in North Bay Village. Both times, he was on point, responsive and executed flawlessly. Luiz listened, understood objectives, delivered on commitments, and guided me through a process I was unfamiliar with, keeping my best interests at heart every step of the way. If you want to work with a true professional, I recommend you give him a call.

    Gaston & Susanne gave Luiz 5 stars out of 5
    For us, Luiz is forever. We bought the unit in Miami Beach using his services, we enjoyed for years the excellent location and we sold it with him with a good profit as well. Luiz knows and loves his trade. Besides, he knows how to help people like us, who were in a number of doubts, by giving us the proper information to make decisions. The fact that we sold the property does not mean at all that we will ever forget him. He is one of a kind and we consider him as a good friend. His personality shines with dedication, good work, efficient help and an outstanding patience and intelligence. Should we require realtor services in the area, there is no doubt in our minds that we would first contact him above all other professionals. If we could rate him, we would give him a 10. Thank you very much Luiz and God bless you.

    We are very pleased with Luiz services. Once more he exceeded our expectations. In a short period of time, Luiz understood exactly our needs and wants. He was our eyes and ears for the most part of the process, and we ended up purchasing a property that was exactly what we were looking for. Luiz did a superb job in helping us to buy, refurbish, and eventually rent out two properties in Aventura, Florida.

    Javier gave Luiz 5 stars out of 5
    My partner and I were in the market for a pied-¿½-terre in Miami Beach. We initially contacted Luiz about a listing for a studio that, unfortunately, was already under contract for sale. Luiz, nonetheless, offered to work with us, and we could not have made a better decision. Luiz is thorough, respectful and efficient ........a true professional. Coming in from New York, with just a weekend to view properties and make a decision, the showings were right on target with what we were looking for. After narrowing down our search to two properties. Luiz helped us arrive at an offer price for the one that we ultimately liked the most. The offer was accepted by the seller, and then Luiz was able to renegotiate the price down substantially to meet the bank?s appraised value. We love our apartment in North Beach!

    If you want sound advise on investing in properties in Miami, Luiz is the ideal agent to call. I purchased one of his listings on the beach four years ago... Location, Location, Location! We recently sold it for a 22% gain. Luiz also helped me find my primary residence. His knowledge of Miami neighborhoods and the details involved with each transaction made me feel empowered to make the right decision each time. I am happy with my new home and its beautiful location. Luiz is a professional and a true gentleman.

    Luiz Cavalcanti was great. Being out of town buyers of a second home, having an agent we trusted in Miami Beach was paramount. Luiz was very professional, knowledgeable and responsive to our concerns. From start to finish Luiz was prompt at returning calls, emails or texts. His past experience with sales in the area was very useful in helping us find the perfect pied-a-terre in Miami Beach. I would highly recommend Luiz to anyone needing a real estate agent. You won't be disappointed.
