Before joining Decorus Realty, Jorge worked as the right-hand of one of the partners of celebrated developer J. Milton & Associates, one of the top 3 developers in Florida, and served as the key liaison overseeing buyers, company's sales executives and agents. Jorge was crucial in the completion of the company's single largest residential bulk deal with an international firm in London, participating in the negotiations between the developer and the client, performing multiple vital analyses supporting the terms of the transaction to convince the client and traveling to London with both partners in 2008 to finalize the $42-million deal despite the raising uncertainty of the markets at the time.
