Rene prides himself on working ethically and keeping his clients’ desires and interests at the forefront of the transaction. At all times, Rene will keep you informed of the process, your choices, and expectations. Most importantly, because his focus is on providing quality service and not in the quantity of clientele for whom he provides service, he won’t rush you to buy or sell a property—to the contrary, he will make sure you move at your own pace, feeling confident that when you’re ready to make a move he is there as your trusted advisor and fierce advocate.


Rene is an experienced mountain climber. He has reached the top of Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania; Woman’s Death Pass in Peru; Pico Duarte in the Dominican Republic; and Mt.
