Miami Luxury Power Broker & Socialite Katrina Campins

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.

NYC Luxury Real Estate Rising Star

When you think of up and coming mega real estate agents in New York then the name Luis D. Ortiz should be on your mind.

He’s been in the New York City real estate arena for over seven years and he is just getting warmed up. He has taken the bull by the horns in New York City working diligently towards his one goal and that is to be one of the top real estate agents, not only New York but the country.

His talents are not only in real estate but Ortiz also studied film direction at the New York Film Academy which led him to receiving numerous awards for his work. He took that passion for entertainment and thrust it into his real estate business making a true production out of any listing that he took on.

As all agents do, he started at one firm then took a step up by going to another firm to further his career. What makes him different is that every move that he made was another rung up the ladder, so he moved from a firm like Synergy to take his business to Keller Williams, where he became someone to look for greater things from. He didn’t disappoint either; he quickly rose to the rank of VP in their New York office.

During that time he had the major opportunity to be a part of the up and coming reality show “Million Dollar Listing : New York” on the Bravo TV Network. This opened up plenty of doors for Ortiz as it led him to making yet another stretch up that ladder of success to join forces with the powerhouse real estate brokerage firm Douglas Elliman.

This move was properly his smartest to date as it put him in line with some of the true real estate superstars not only in New York but internationally.

In the past three years he has sales in excess of US$100MM and this is just the tip of the iceberg for this rising real estate star.

“New York is the place to make it if you are going to make it anywhere, Luis Ortiz is on the path to greater things not only in real estate but in life, I like the fact that he wants to use his fame on the reality show to try to inspire young people to step up and dream big but also put actions behind those dreams,” – Louis Velazquez, UCW Radio Show
