When you mention the name Katrina Campins, the first reaction of those that know of her are “That girl from The Apprentice” or “Wasn’t she on the cover of People Magazine?”
Here is the skinny on this dynamic go getter, she’s been in the real estate industry since the age of 17. She didn’t just decided to go into real estate and hope for the best, she has done what most professional athletes have done to go pro, she went to college. She graduated from the University of Miami with an impressive 4.0 grad point average.
Now that college education came in pretty handy as it allowed her to take the international finance and marketing skills that she acquired in school and apply them to her real estate career. In doing that she became a well known and accomplished agent but that wasn’t enough for Campins, she craved for more.
So in 2002 she took the leap of faith to join the new show at the time, Donald Trumps “The Apprentice.” This forced her to take time off from pursuing her real estate career in order to grab hold of a once in a lifetime opportunity, an opportunity that would open up many doors for her and land her on the cover of People Magazine.
She became the go to person for CNBC on the state of the Miami real estate market, landed a gig as correspondent for ESPN which really opened up doors for her to connect with many pro athletes. This move trickled down back into her real estate business which allowed her to represent over 342 athletes, entertainers and celebrities with their national real estate needs.
Her property listings have been featured on NBC, HGTV, SiTV, CNN, CNBC, ESPN, MTV, Bloomberg TV, and BBC.
She has been a highly sought after broker who is known for her professionalism, knowledge and desire to work hard for her clients. This work ethic has garnered her recognition from the likes of Realtor Magazine’s “Top 30 Under 30″ in 2004, Forbes, USA Today, NY Post, NY Times, Sports Illustrated, Ocean Drive, ESPN, Player Magazine, Variety Magazine, the covers of People Magazine, US Weekly, In Touch, and countless others.
Her reputation for being accommodating, creative and above all discreet has earned her the keys to many kingdoms and just recently she grabbed one additional key.
This Miami luxury real estate superstar has joined Trump International Realty as the company is expanding their reach throughout South Florida. The recent opening of Trump’s National Doral Golf Resort offices opened up that opportunity which Campins seized with a smile.
“Katrina Campins is one of those passionate people that was born with that drive to succeed, she hasn’t strayed away from growth and actually launching her own prestigious real estate firm in 2004 called “The Campins Company” gave her more to strive for. Trump International definitely tapped a great asset in Katrina which will sure show as she sinks her teeth into their new projects,” – Louis Velazquez, UCW Radio Show.
