“I love to travel and I try to get to know a new country every year — the more people I know and the more cultures I discover, the more I love my job!”
In a business where word-of-mouth and trusting, long-term relationships are crucial, Alexandra Escudero chooses to keep her professional approach simple. “My main principle in business is honesty,” she says. “I will never let someone buy a property I wouldn’t buy for myself.” Born in Colombia and living between Caracas and Miami in her youth, Escudero has turned an education based in interior design into a successful real estate career spanning decades. Unwilling to settle complacently, Escudero’s veteran status doesn’t mean she doesn’t occasionally have to hit the bricks. Her most recent achievement? “After a couple of months of work and knocking on a whole lot of doors, I was able to acquire almost an acre of land in Wynwood not previously on the market!”
Offer power: “Opportunities are out there, but unless you make an offer you won’t get them!”
Persistence pays: “Be patient and never give up on a customer.”
When opportunity knocks: “I’m looking forward to increasing my network with international clients and continuing to find new commercial opportunities.”
