Golfer Carlos Puerto is an International Luxury Home Specialist at Stirling Sotheby's International Realty's Windermere / Dr. Phillips Marketing Center.
Puerto, born in Cali, Colombia, emigrated to the U.S. at an early age and grew up in Massachusetts where he learned to love golf. He played on the first golf team his high school ever fielded.
In 1988, Carlos relocated to Miami to study Business Administration at the University of Miami.
His love of golf persisted and he made it his professional career and eventually moved to Orlando. Carlos managed multiple golf clubs to financial success and served as Senior General Manager of the Golden Bear Golf Club in Windermere with its Jack Nicklaus signature golf course and the Red Tail Golf Club in Sorrento.
As an International Luxury Homes Specialist Carlos specializes in unique luxury community, golf community and resort community homes.
He is fluent in both Spanish and English and maintains strong ties with affluent families in his native Colombia.
Carlos sees a strong demand by Central and South Americans for luxury homes in Central Florida as the economy improves, either as vacation and second homes or as family homesteads, Puerto said.
Carlos doesn't limit his sporting activities to golf. He also plays soccer on Juventus soccer team in Central Florida as well as flag football, teams of 40-year-olds reviving a dream of being competitive players.
