Maria Catalina BustamanteRealtor Associate
Many people don't realize the similarities between marketing and real estate, but the truth is the two professions have much in common, and being talented in one can lead to great success in the other. The effect is even greater in the case of Catalina Bustamante who is not only skilled in all aspects of real estate transactions but also highly experienced in global marketing.
With a career that includes seven years working with world-famous brands to establish effective marketing campaigns, Catalina recognized that real estate clients could benefit from the same attention to detail, negotiation skills, and customer service she was known for providing to her clients. She has leveraged this expertise, along with a specialization in online marketing and social media into a real estate approach that delivers exceptional value to anyone looking to rent, buy, or sell a property in South Florida. My priority is to provide an excellent experience throughout the process by helping clients identify their exact needs, and then finding the ideal properties to match those desires, all while keeping in mind the client's best interests, says Catalina about her real estate philosophy.
Though she has lived in the Miami-Fort Lauderdale area for more than 12 years, Catalina is originally from Colombia. This gives her a unique insight into the minds of foreign buyers wishing to call South Florida home. In particular, Catalina focuses on Sunny Isles, Hallandale, Hollywood, and Aventura, but she is very well versed in other popular neighborhoods throughout Miami-Dade and Broward.
Catalina holds a degree in Industrial Engineering from Pontifical Xavier University one of the most prestigious educational institutions in Colombia, and also a Bachelor's Degree in International Business from Florida Atlantic University, where she graduated Summa Cum Laude. Among her interests are staying involved in her community, often volunteering her time and support to the St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.
