Broker-Associate, Florida Real Estate lic. (32 years experience)
Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $550K in Miami, FL.
Ileana Rodriguez is a rare commodity among real estate agents in Miami, FL. She is a tangible example of the difference between "agent" and professional. Not only did she close a deal that was substantially more money than we could have sold by owner, she did whatever it took to help make or transition smoother. Our "transition" was a 3000 mile move.
Many agents will allow a listing to languish if the buyer isn't there prodding. Not Ileana! while we had left Miami in May, she pressed on...Open Houses, gaining input from unbiased sources to make our house more marketable, helping us make the changes from so far away. Our neighbors remarked many times that there were Open Houses all the time.
Considering the market when we started in June 2013 (nearly stagnant with a buyer attitude that houses are selling for $10K...) to the December 2013 closing, she was able to constantly and accurately determine what needed to be done to sell. Our house had a prime location, but was cosidered dated by some. She was candid and correct with her selling tips. We truly feel that we got top dollar for our house, which can be supported by later sales in the same area.
When there was a glitch with the first buyer (fell through) she pursued the contractual obligations to ensure the validity of the sale. She had the foresight to NOT stop showing the house while the buyer attempted to unsuccessfully play games. When it aggravated me, she had the experience to keep a cool head and indirectly apply pressure to that buyer to basically "Show the $$." Her definitive knowledge of the contract and execution thereof proved invaluable.
A true optimist, she just never stopped or gave up.
If you are looking for a dedicated, extremely knowledgeable agent who will do what it takes to get you the highest offer on your home, look no further. Ileana Rodriguez is the professional who will exceed your needs.
Proof? We just signed with her to sell our second property.
Very professional, goes out of her way to ensure the client is taken care of and understands the process in detail. Ileana will travel out of her zone to meet with clients and provides all necessary services needed to purchase a home.
Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $325K in South Miami, FL.
Ileana listed our home, and I always felt as if we were her most important clients. She always returns calls quickly, she kept us informed at all times, and was very helpful with suggestions about what could help us sell our home faster vs. improvements that would've cost us money, but not increased the sale price. She sold our home in about six weeks, and we were very happy with the price. Now we've contacted her again to list an investment apartment we own. I'm very confident in her experience, reliability, and energy.
Ileana has been my real estate agent both for the purchase and the sale of my property in Miami. Her knowledge and experience that she provided was unmeasurable. On both of these transactions I knew that she exceeded my expectations. I definitely would give her a call if I were to purchase or sell another property in South Florida.
Ileana was extremely helpful and professional in helping me purchase a home and in selling my house. My home in Coral Gables went onto the market in July 2011 and was sold in May 2012. Throughout the selling process, Ileana was very knowledgeable and honest about the actions I needed to take to sell my home. Through her expertise, I also received a fair price for my home. Ileana's attendance at the closing ensured a smooth process. I highly recommend Ileana as a realtor to anyone who wishes to put their home on the market.
Ileana helped us find the best house, in the best neighborhood and area for our very specific needs. After being forced to move out of our first residence due to some landlord issues we found an "emergency" place to live in for 3 to 4 months. But it was almost 20 miles from work and really took a toll on finances, time and health in general. We contacted Ileana after dealing with almost 6 other realtors in the area. Ileana was the ONLY one who went out of her way to really give us real options based on our real needs, not a generic list of places all over the place that in the end were not at all what we wanted or needed. It is great to feel you have the assistance of someone who really knows what they are doing. Ileana was extremely knowledgeable about every aspect of finding our perfect house, gave us helpful tips to deal with the owners and helped make the whole process extremely easy. It was a pleasure to deal with Ileana and would recommend her to anyone seeking real estate services in the miami area.
Sold a Single Family home in 2009 for approximately $325K in Shenandoah, Miami, FL.
Ileana Rodriguez has been my agent for some time now in both the sale and rental market. I consider her expertise, in comparison to other agents I have used, TOP NOTCH. I am a very demanding customer and she never lost her cool and provided me with exactly what I expected. She also watches out for your interest, which is very important in todays economy. I highly recommend her!
