Orlando can't recall a time when he wasn't involved in real estate. Whether dreaming about possibilities, investing personally, or helping family and friends find homes, he was engulfed by his passion and even finds himself staying up all night reading about real estate, and watching HGTV! "There is never a time when I'm not looking for a unique location or a home that offers something special," he says.
He has been in the business of selling ideas and experiences throughout his entire career. He brought his seasoned client service and negotiating skills to real estate after holding high-profile executive positions in the advertising industry, overseeing major accounts such as Fortune 100 companies and large nonprofit educational organizations.
His fascination turned into exceptional knowledge and a full-time career. He brings this expertise and dedication to help clients find great homes and smart investments, and to make their involvement in real estate seamless and stress-free.
He holds a Broker Associate License in Florida and is a Licensed Real Estate Salesperson in NY.
Committed to advancement, Orlando holds the Seniors Real Estate Specialist (SRES) Designation, and draws upon the wealth of resources at New York's powerhouse brokerage firm, Douglas Elliman, to optimize service and results for his clients. "Buying or selling is one of the most exciting and nerve-wracking times for my clients; being able to help guide them through this process, is incredibly rewarding.

Fire Island: he has been a part of both the Pines and Cherry Grove communities for over 20 years; Sayville and the South Shore: Sayville has been his home for over 12 years and the South Shore is where he lives his life; and South Florida: Orlando was raised in Miami, and owns property in Miami Beach and in Wilton Manors.
