Sold a Condo home in 2013 in Upper West Side, New York, NY.

Mr. Ugarte is the real state agent who I originally contacted for the purchasing of my first vacation home in Florida, over a decade after that first just business relationship I have come to regard Mr. Ugarte as a caring and dependable person to whom I have complete confidence to conduct all of my real state businesses as a direct agent for purchases in Florida, as consultant and advisor on real state transactions in New York and as my representative and manager of my rental properties in Florida.

From Mr. Ugarte I have come to realize that success in real state businesses, and for analogy any business transaction, is highly dependent on finding the proper balance on the best interest on both sides of the parties involve in the transaction

Bought a home in 2012.

Jorge was my agent on five purchases and my listing agent on two over the course of 10 years. I have sent him to many family and friends over this time period who all had a positive experience with him. He is extremely knowledgable about real estate, and an expert on Tampa real estate.

Jorge's biggest asset is his honesty, something that is lacking in the real estate world. He will tell you that your house is overpriced. He will tell you not to buy in a particular neighborhood, even though you love the house. He will tell you that you're crazy to buy a one bedroom condo because you'll never sell it. He will tell you not to buy something with 4 stories. He will tell you not to buy the "deal of a lifetime" if it sits on a busy street. He won't tell you what you want to hear, unless it's true. I know this because he has said all of these things to me at least once.

He's a location guy. Meaning, he is all about location, location, location. Buy for the neighborhood. Buy something you can sell. Smaller house with no commute is better. He is not afraid to give you his opinions. He's a great negotiator and knows the market. He'll tell you if you can lowball, and he'll tell you if you need to come in at full price. And finally, he will not let a seller take advantage of you....and they will try.

I took the time to write this because Jorge has helped me out tremendously on multiple deals. I've learned a lot from him and consider him a friend.
