Originally from Miami, I grew up in Kendall before moving here in 1993 to go to school at the University of Florida where I studied Biological Engineering. I decided that engineering was not for me and went into the hospitality business where eventually I bought and operated Fat Tuesday in downtown Gainesville. At the same time I bought a share of the Reedy building downtown and is where I got my first taste of real estate.
We owned the bar until 2011 when our lease was up, and decided it was time to move on. I married my sweetheart Rachel of 6 years that same year and we have 3 beautiful children Ethan, Ashton and Arden. Since then I have helped my brother Oscar buy and manage investment properties here in Gainesville part time. I also worked full time for Gillen Broadcasting-KISS 105.3 as an account executive until deciding to finally do real estate full time.
Choosing the right real estate agent is one of the most important decisions you can make when buying or selling a home. Living in Gainesville for over 20 years as a student, citizen and small business owner, I am very familiar with what Gainesville has to offer. I am knowledgeable with our local neighborhoods, school zones, and the surrounding areas of the University of Florida. The right Realtor can make your buying or selling experience that much more pleasant and profitable. Especially in today's ever changing real estate market.
As a Realtor and professional I strive to treat and represent all my clients with unwavering hard work, honesty, integrity, dependability and service second to none. You can have piece of mind knowing that I will represent you both professionally and ethically. I am also fluent in Spanish as it was my first language.
I chose to work for Coldwell Banker M.M. Parrish because they have the same values that I have, as well as a proven track record of excellence in this community. Buying or selling a home will be one of the biggest financial decisions that you will ever make so why not have the best assist you with this. Please allow me the opportunity to assist you with this decision and have Coldwell Banker M.M. Parrish and their commitment to excellence help you meet and exceed your expectations!
If I can be of any assistance, please do not hesitate to call me. Go Gators!

Tony knew the market and the potential audience of buyers. He guided us through the process and exceeded our expectations at every opportunity. We were able to realize a greater sale value than we initially thought when we first thought. Tony kept us informed at every step and really made the sale easy for us. I would recommend him to anyone looking to sell their home. Thank you!

Tony is the best agent I have ever worked with. He helped us through out the whole purchasing process with his best knowledge as a buyer’s agent, but we actually received as the level of broker’s knowledge(Tony achieved broker license after he passed the test recently). We were very lucky to have him to helped us.
