It’s a small world after all. And residential real estate agents with an international bent like Adriana Alvarez Higgins are helping make it smaller -- by using their worldly experiences to “connect people across the globe to people across the street.”
Adriana was born and raised in Bogota, Colombia. After completing her schooling there (BA in Graphic Design and Graduate diplomas in Marketing Strategy and Business Management from the Universidad Javeriana), Adriana built a successful career in advertising/marketing in the banking and media/entertainment sectors. She moved to the United States in 1999. Her educational/professional background coupled with her fluency in Spanish, and even more importantly, in the dialect of business, left Adriana well-positioned for a transition to residential real estate. In this geographically desirable part of the country, where tens of thousands are flocking to live and invest from all over the world, including from Spanish-speaking countries, she has served as an ambassador to our city.
To enhance her already impressive credentials, Adriana recently took the step of achieving the “Certified International Property Specialist” designation. Because international real estate transactions are significantly different and more complex than domestic transactions, from currency issues and financing to visa and tax laws, working with a REALTOR® who knows how to handle these differences is imperative. International real estate agents have access to a wide network of professionals to assist you with inbound or outbound transactions around the globe. There are only 2,800 international property professionals out there doing business in 50 countries, and Adriana is one of them. She also serves on the MetroTex Global Business Council.
Adriana has been with Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate since 2012. When she is not busy helping buyers and sellers across the globe connect, she enjoys spending time with her son, David. Also, spending time with friends, traveling and learning about other cultures.
