“SMART, ENERGETIC, PROFESSIONAL, AND AN EFFECTIVE NEGOTIATOR”
Oscar Arellano sold our house in Kendall in under one week. He is smart, energetic, professional, an effective negotiator, and very responsive to the seller’s needs and concerns. He made the process as stress-free as possible. I highly recommend him to anyone in the market for a superb realtor in the South Florida area.

“OSCAR HAS BEEN A FULL SERVICE BROKER IN EVERY SENSE OF THE TERM”
We decided to relocate from Houston, TX, to Miami, FL, and was introduced to Oscar through a mutual connection. We had been frequent visitors to South Florida and had some familiarity with the area, but had never explored ownership or permanent residency. Therefore, we decided we did not want to make a purchase decision without getting to know the area and markets better.
So, as a first step, Oscar helped us locate and negotiate a lease on a great condo on Miami Beach. Next we set about the task of exploring the various neighborhoods that might work for us in terms of lifestyle, price point, etc. Admittedly we did some flailing around before we decided exactly where we wanted to be. Throughout this process, as Oscar got to know us better he was extremely patient and very helpful in advising us what was best for us rather than just trying to sell us a house.
Once we identified the house we wanted, Oscar was instrumental in negotiating an excellent deal with a very difficult seller. We have now purchased the home and are in the process of major renovations. Again, being relatively new to the area Oscar has been invaluable in making recommendations on various service providers to facilitate that process. Truthfully, without Oscar’s contacts and assistance we don’t think we would have purchased a property requiring major renovations. For us, Oscar has been a full service broker in every sense of the term.”

“IT WAS A ‘NO BRAINER,’ WE CALLED OSCAR ARELLANO OF COURSE!”
My daughter who is a realtor in Broward County introduced us to Oscar Arellano by forwarding me his company’s email updates of their new real estate listings in Miami. My initial impression of Oscar and Fortune International Realty were very positive. The volume and quality of the listings were very impressive. That was all fine and good but with our home in Broward County we did not think we would be using his services at all. As fate has it, my son who owned a home in Miami, moved on to a “better place” and we, Mom and Dad, were tasked with the job of selling his Miami home. What we did next was a “no brainer.” We called Oscar Arellano of Fortune International Realty of course! We sat down with Oscar to talk business. That was early January, 2014. Oscar and his team member, Ana Maria, were considerate and very professional. They knew the area well and in fact had sold many homes in the immediate location. We felt very comfortable with Oscar and were never talked down to. We had a great exchange; never felt our opinions were disregarded. The home went on the market in the middle of January, 2014 and within one week; we had a reasonable offer that we accepted. Now the fun part begins: buyer’s inspection, buyer’s mortgage commitment and closing. Yes, we had some minor hurdles along the way, but must admit Oscar and Ana Maria held our hands throughout the process. The three extensions to original closing date made us impatient, but again, Oscar held things together. We survived and the closing took place eight weeks after accepting offer. That’s pretty remarkable. Oscar and Ana Maria were always on top of things. Oscar always returned our calls, took the time to explain to us the process and through it all, always had a great sense of humor. We definitely would recommend Oscar Arellano and Fortune International Realty to anyone who is looking to buy or sell property.

PASSION AND DEDICATION!
Oscar is a true professional who made the process of selling my home very easy and did so very quickly. Within two weeks of listing my home, we received an offer on the house and sold it right away. Oscar was always very professional and available with any questions or concerns throughout the process. He has a great personality that is a joy to work with and evident of his love of his career. I believe that his love for real estate ensured that my property was sold quickly and that everyone was very happy throughout. I would work with Oscar again gladly and recommend him to all of my friends.
KNOWS HIS CRAFT EXTREMELY WELL!
We were selling our parent’s home, where we grew up and made memories for 35 years. Needless to say, it was an emotional sell. Oscar listened to our concerns but was always steadfast. He knew the neighborhood well and knew what the asking and selling price should be.He was on point and knows his craft extremely well. We could not be more grateful for his professionalism and follow through. We cannot thank him enough!

His multiple contacts really brought the entire purchasing experience under a single umbrella. I would recommend Oscar to all my friends and family.

ONE OF THE MOST PROFESSIONAL INDIVIDUALS
Oscar Arellano is one of the most professional individuals I have ever met. The way he conducts his business is both aggressive and honest. He was able to get the job done without any hidden agenda. In the most accommodating manner, he was willing to go the extra mile by coming to my home and brining me a lease contract without having to go to where he was. Not only is he personable but very good at what he does. It is evident that he enjoys his career and takes the utmost pride in providing excellent customer service to his clients. He proves to be very knowledgeable as well as experienced, which led me to trust his judgments throughout the process in looking for the best prospective candidate for my properties. Oscar took the time while he was experiencing the recent birth of his first born to still keep in contact with his clients and make sure there wasn’t anything left undone. This shows his true dedication and professionalism towards his future in this market. One thing is certain—Oscar is a person, even in a short period of time, who is reliable and definitely one to have on your team!

GIVE IT TO OSCAR…
I had the opportunity to see Oscar in action when he got the listing to sell my daughter’s house last year. She had been through 2 previous agents and was a disappointed at the lack of activity that they had generated. All we heard from them was how the economy was in bad shape and nobody was buying real estate, etc. etc. Well, Oscar came in and all of the sudden he was showing the house every weekend and many weekdays. People kept coming back and in a matter of 3 months, the house was sold, and at a fair price. We are now getting ready to sell my mother’s house and the first thing I suggested to my brother and sisters was- “Give it to Oscar”. We did and we know he will do a great job again. He has the knowledge, perseverance, and enthusiasm that is required to succeed in this down market.
PROFESSIONAL AND KNOWLEDGEABLE REAL ESTATE TEAM
Oscar and his Real Estate team are awesome. Very professional and knowledgeable. It is always a pleasure to work with him.
