Apparentely, we're doing something good...thank you to all the folks who shared their kudos!
As a lawyer, I have counseled clients on a bunch of large and complex deals in the millions of dollars. However, when it came to buying a new house, we needed a professional who knew the real estate ropes inside and out. In Javier Gonzalez, we got the consummate agent who counseled us on ever facet, from looking for the right house, negotiating the purchase price and getting the sale closed. His motto is "casual, relaxed, stressfree" - I would add "effective and gets results.

I wanted to thank you for all of your assistance in the recent sale of our house. Even though you represented the buyers in this transaction, you and Javier provided a great service to me and my wife. You kept all parties in touch and updated on events, found solutions and work-arounds to problems that arose, managed all of the many details, and kept the deal together and moving forward. Most importantly, you were the calm in the face of all of the anxiety that came from the challenges and delays associated with this transaction. The Realtor that I had hired for this sale could learn much from you and Javier, as they seemed just along for the ride.
Again, thank you for making this sale happen!

I have worked with Javier on property rentals and sales, including a difficult short sale that was closed successfully.
Javier and his team are professional, efficient and provide outstanding guidance through the real estate process.
Javier is extremely knowledgeable about the South Florida area, and accurately informs you about the character and amenities of local neighborhoods.
He is also always accessible and keeps you up to date. He will go the extra mile to make sure your real estate deal goes smoothly and that you are happy.
I wholeheartedly recommend Javier to anyone in need of a realtor, and have in fact recommended his services to family and close friends.
-from a customer that has been involved in rentals, sales and short sales with us throughout 2012
A Big Thank You!
I wanted to take a moment to thank you and Erika for the wonderful job you did in both renting and selling our home.
As you know, due to market conditions, Amy and I were forced to rent our house initially. We were able to do this at a very attractive number while living in another state because of you and your staff. I doubt that any other Realtor would have made us feel as comfortable in this predicament as you did.
A year later when we were committed to selling our home, you and Erika worked tirelessly weekend after weekend to secure a buyer for us. This was done within a deadline we had to meet at a number we are happy with.
Thank you for ensuring us that our home was being cared for in a professional manner and that our needs and fears were all part of the process that you are extremely well equipped to handle.
Please feel free to use me as a reference, your friend,

Javi was one of the most knowledgeable, intelligent, and laid back agents we met. He knows the south Florida market, it's history, and homes, like the back of his hand. We highly recommend him. He is a wealth of knowledge, and made our home buying process a breeze.
-from customer who purchased a Single Family home in 2010 for approximately $425k in Miami Shores, FL
Back in 2001, I was working with an agent of whose name I can't remember. Anyways, it was a pretty bad experience but I had no clue at the time because it was my first experience. I was finding all the houses I liked, by myself, but no houses were brought to my attention. And the agent lost me a house to another buyer because of improperly filed paperwork. So, I had lost confidence I was gonna find a house I'd fall in love with.
Then one day I'm searching the Grove for a house and meet Jav, who's having an open house. We chat about what I'd like and I write my phone number and address down and think nothing of it. That night, he calls me and tells me he's gonna put a few places in my mailbox that he thinks I'll dig. I go out there and there's at least 15 homes. I go check them out and they're great. They're what I was hoping to find but didn't. I gave my other agent notice and went with Jav. He then transformed into a house hunting animal and was pulling places out of the woodwork.
Not to make a long story longer, but as I was about to come to a signed agreement on a ridiculously great Gables home, he pulled out another piece of paper with a newly listed house on the street I told him I'd absolutely love to live on. Within weeks we had closed on the house and I was a home owner.
Since them, he's always been there for me and goes above and beyond. I've recommended him to dozens and dozens of friends and he's done the same for them. Sorry for the rambling description, but Javier rocks and I'm glad I found him when I did.
-from customer who purchased a Single Family home in 2001 in South Coconut Grove, Miami, FL
I bought my house from a client of Javier's. I have subsequently worked with Javier for years, and recommended him to many friends. He is an outstanding professional, detail-oriented and trustworthy. He has recommended many other professionals in his field; from painters to plumbers to lawyers -- and everything in between. I have been summarily satisfied and highly recommend Javier to anyone I know looking to buy or sell a property in the area.

Great experience! We'll be using them in our next home sale/purchase.

Javier advised us well on investment properties. He is knowledgeable, and responsive, in addition to being a very nice person.
-from customer who bought a Condo home in 2004 for approximately $225k in Coral Gables, FL
I strongly recommend Javier if you are looking to buy or rent property in South Florida. Javier assisted us as both our selling and buying broker. Both transactions were stress free and befitting of the flip flops he wears I think in part as a badge of honor. But do not let the flops deceive you, he is knowledgable, professional and responsive. I'd hire him again.
