About Zen Home Group
Get to Know Our Team at Zen Home Group
Zen Home Group was built on the foundation of knowing that behind every home and every real estate transaction, there is a person or family that relies on the expertise of the professional to plan their life around homeownership. A financial decision of this impact requires the knowledge, guidance, and support of experienced agents who are motivated first and foremost by the clients’ needs and best interests.
We care about our clients’ stories, and we’d like to welcome everyone to become a part of ours.
Operating on the core values of people, passion, and experience, our team has successfully helped hundreds of families in Central FL over the years. We believe that communication and trust are the pillars of every successful transaction, and we build our client relationships upon this foundation.
Our dedication, and empathy, as well as honest and open communication, allow us to give our clients the highest level of support and confidence to make important real estate decisions. If it’s not the right decision we will tell you!
At Zen Home Group, we take pride in our local knowledge of Orlando and the surrounding area. As homeowners and business owners in Orlando, the community comes first. We live and work in the area, which is why we always work with honesty and integrity.
Real Estate With You in Mind
We firmly believe in honesty and accessibility for all our clients. Our personalized service will help you get exactly what you’re looking for in a home, or help you sell your house YOUR way, with little stress and for the most money. With Zen Home Group, we do Real Estate with YOU in mind.
Mario entered the Real Estate world in 2010. Starting as an investor, he decided shortly after to enter Real Estate and get licensed to help families achieve wealth through Real Estate. He has extensive knowledge of the market and enjoys working with both buyers and sellers. With over 500 career sales as an agent, Mario has seen it all. Through tough negotiations, foreclosures, and short sales, what he enjoys the most about these challenges are the relationships that are built. He has opened and operated two successful brokerages throughout his career so far, and currently manages Zen Home Group — a team of energetic and knowledgeable agents operating within the motto of “Real Estate with You In Mind.” This is a true testament to their service-first approach, but also a pledge to always put the person above the transaction.
Mario has been recognized as one of the Top Realtors Under 35 by Orlando Real Producers and consistently ranks among the top 500 agents in the region. In these technology-oriented times, the Real Estate market is moving at an unprecedented pace and that is why Mario and his team decided to join Compass, a technology-driven Real Estate company that perfectly complements their service first approach. He explains that “With access to superior CRM software, marketing, concierge services, and a powerful referral network, it was a “no-brainer.”
Mario is ALL IN when it comes to Real Estate. Besides helping his community buy and sell property, he is also an avid Real Estate investor himself, manages rental properties, and is currently building homes as well. Mario is also continuing to develop ways to give back, support, and connect with the community not only through Real Estate, but also through hosting and participating in more community events, donations, and development projects.
Outside of the Real Estate world he enjoys spending quality time with his wife and two daughters or playing soccer. He also loves traveling to beautiful Greece where he was raised, or Colombia where his wife is from.
