To all the folks @ Capital Teamwork,
Apologies for not responding sooner. I got very busy post the house sale. Didn’t mean to ignore you guys.
All of you have been of such great help to us during all the years as property managers and towards the end as realtors. As your company name suggests, you all have excellent team work. Maria and Nayarit have been so patient with us dealing with the various vendors and repair works. Living out of the country and trying to do a sale, we don’t know how it would have been if not for both of them. The personal attention that you all gave and the help that was provided is truly going beyond what was expected. We are very blessed to have you all by our side. Like Manjusha said, maybe there will be another reason to cross paths again in the future. Nonetheless, you will always be in our minds and thoughts. Best wishes to you all!

It was almost 10 years back that you came to see the house when we were getting it ready for rental. Since that day your have helped us quite a bit in managing the property. Thank you very much for your support.
Thank you for your patience through the last year as we were dealing with various issues with the house and especially with the pines management company. Your help is greatly appreciated.
Thanks for always staying top on the communication and managing the tenants.
Overall, you are a great team and we are glad we got to work with you and you never know we may get another opportunity to work together in the future.

From Mr. Gollapudi, and Mrs. Manjusha

Our experience in working with your team was exceptional!! Any question we had, any concern we had, was answered and taken care of immediately! This could not have gone any easier! There was no stress, no worries. If you are looking for a Real Estate company that will take care of you….THEN YOU HAVE FOUND IT!!
But The greatest part of doing business with this team, is that we gained a friend from it! That is a true blessing! We are eternally grateful for their help and EXPERTISE!!

Much Love and Gratitude,

The Weisman’s Half Dozen!!

Dear Maria:

We want to thank you for all of the help with the sale of our home at Grand Palms. Your professionalism is beyond compare. Your quick response to our phone calls, text messages, e-mails, etc. it’s a definite plus.

We wish you continue success and happiness in the future.

Please also thank John, who played such an important part in this sale. He is kind, caring and a happy responsible person. Consider yourself blessed to have him in your life. We feel honored to have met him.

Thank you both from the bottom of our hearts.

Most cordially,

Isak & Golde Kubiliun

“Working with Maria Quintana was truly a delight! She was upfront and transparent every step of the way. She always had time for me, to explain legal and other real estate matters. She was extremely knowledgeable and personable. Super high energy and customer focused! I only wish to find someone like her where I am moving.”

Vivian Rios

Thank you for such a great job. We really appreciate your friendliness, professionalism and your attention to detail. We would never had gotten through this closing without you!

Karl and Susan Galluzo

Prezada Luciana
Gostaria de agradecer seu empenho e eficiência na administração do imóvel que tivemos em Miami
Em fevereiro de 2009, você nos assessorou na compra do imóvel localizado na Brickell 950.
Durante 5 anos, alem de alugar o imóvel, vocês administraram o recebimento do aluguel a manutenção do imóvel e principalmente sua locação, sendo que mesmo com troca de inquilinos, ele jamais ficou muito tempos vazio.
Quando nos decidimos pela venda, em menos de 30 dias ele foi comercializado.
Mais que isto, você se encarregou da escritura, entrega do imóvel aos novos proprietários, recebimento da venda e pagamento das taxas.
Enfim, sem nenhum trabalho ou aborrecimento, tivemos um imóvel por 5 anos , com renda e com lucro na venda
A você meu muito obrigado, e tenha certeza que qualquer negociação imobiliária que venha a fazer nos Estados Unidos será por seu intermédio
Um abraço

Luiz Rogelio Tolosa

This was our first home buying experience. I worked with several realtors prior to Maria and Luciana. Maria and Luciana worked diligently to find us a perfect home. They worked above and beyond my expectations. They answered emails and calls promptly and always had answers to all of my questions. They did not stop until we found our dream home. It didn’t take us long either. They knew exactly what we wanted, they only showed us homes that they knew we would like, and they really did an amazing job. We could not be happier with the level of expertise and knowledge of this team. I highly recommend this company. They stand behind their word and they will not let you down. Thank you so much for finding our dream home and making it literally stress free.

Alessandria & James Dorgan

Moving to Florida was a life changing experience for my husband, Bob and I. In fact, we had never even been to Florida and therefore needed a lot of help. After our first meeting with Maria, (later with Luciana) we knew we were in the “best” hands. Their knowledge of the housing market is quite remarkable. Thanks to this great team we found the perfect home in a lovely community.

Theresa & Roberto Jimenez

Looking for the perfect home is a hugely daunting task. My husband and I were extremely overwhelmed with the entire process. The number of factors to evaluate in order to make a smart decision can be very intimidating for even the savviest shoppers. Fortunately Capital Teamwork came into the picture. The team was incredibly accommodating, professional and thorough from start to finish. After our initial meeting and discovery session, they helped us search for the perfect home in the best community for the right budget. They made the process so easy and simple. Our realtor walked us through every step of the way, so we could fully understand our options. They were crucial in making sure Lennar Homes gave us the best incentive and financing options. Now we have our beautiful brand spanking new 5 bedroom and 3 bath dream home. We are thrilled to be part of this new community and look forward to all the future has in store. Thank you Capital Teamwork for making our dreams come true.

Ana Gabriela Ramos

My husband and I are origin and reside in Germany. We feel comfortable and at peace, knowing that John, Maria and their team are managing all our properties.
Throughout these years they have gain or trust and friendship.
We sincerely recommend them to anyone.

Nicola and Franz

We could not be more pleased with the professional and personal service provided by John and Maria. They went above and beyond to ensure our expectations were met and all details executed to completion. They have done exceptional work for us in all market conditions and they represent an unmatched resource in the Florida housing market in our opinion that you can trust.

¿Qué ha significado para nuestra familia trabajar con María Quintana y Nayarit Abreu?
Si tuviera que describirlo en una palabra diría, tranquilidad. De la relación de negocios que hemos establecido con María y Nayarit resalta la confianza de saber que aunque estamos lejos, pues no vivimos en EEUU, nuestras propiedades están siendo bien administradas y conservadas por gente profesional y con probada experiencia en el mercado inmobiliario del Sur de la Florida. Trabajar con María y Nayarit ha sido ir más allá de una relación proveedor – cliente, pues son personas gentiles, eficientes, confiables, siempre comprenden y se adaptan a las necesidades del cliente y ofrecen un servicio de calidad.

Alejandro Giolito

Desde hace más de 10 años hemos mantenido una relación de negocios con María y John. A diferencia de muchos, ellos realmente conocen el mercado inmobiliario de la Florida, y además saben leer exactamente las necesidades de sus clientes, lo que siempre asegura una total satisfacción.

Pablo Giolito

I’m an investor who owns several rental properties. I have worked with both John and Maria on the buy side as well as the sell side for many years. I wouldn’t use anyone else for my real estate. Their analysis of the properties both on the sell and the buy side has always been accurate. They have been efficient and professional and made many observation that proved very helpful. I would highly recommend them and have done so on many occasions. Best in the business.
