The real estate market is booming with no signs of slowing down anytime soon. For those working in the industry, this is good news. While there are dozens of firms across the country, one woman turned her passion for real estate into a significant brokerage firm known for managing roughly 700M in real estate assets. Eva Garzon, the CEO and owner of The Grand Lion Real Estate Group, shares her success story with others to inspire those interested in getting started in the real estate industry.
“When I first started working in real estate ten years ago, I didn’t have experience or a budget. I didn’t have these great expectations of what it would become because I figured I would do this on the side. While I didn’t initially intend to turn it into the powerhouse it’s become, I started to realize just how interested I was in the real estate industry. My genuine passion for the industry ultimately gave me the drive to keep going when things were difficult for me,” said Garzon. “Things were tough in the beginning because I was new to it all and had to start learning everything by myself. It took a lot of hard work and dedication to build my portfolio, get my broker license, and open the brokerage that has since become a huge success.”
If you asked her years ago if she thought she’d be the owner of a major brokerage firm that does business in one of the most beautiful cities in the world, Garzon would’ve said no. “It all happened in Miami. The idea of doing real estate came about when I met my boyfriend in Miami during my internship with Goya Mundus Beca. My boyfriend encouraged me to get into the business. I wasn’t sure if it was for me, but I realized that real estate was perfect for me once I got started. I could tell that it was my purpose in life, and I looked forward to the endless possibilities that it offered me,” shared Garzon. “Now, I’m running a major business with 25 real estate agents working with me as a team to provide commercial, residential, luxury, and short-term rental real estate services. We have team members specializing in different sectors to provide our clients with the best possible experience, regardless of their real estate wants and needs.”
Fueled by her newfound passion nearly a decade ago, Eva Garzon took the plunge into the real estate industry. She turned that passion into a successful firm that now services clients in and around the Miami area. The Grand Lion Real Estate Group takes pride in hiring skilled and passionate real estate agents looking to make a name for themselves in the business. Garzon says she takes each new hire under her wings while providing the training tools and resources to help her team members achieve success. The Grand Lion Real Estate Group continues to grow while keeping up with the demand for real estate throughout Miami and the surrounding areas.
