Helping Students Relocate Since 2008!
"I recently moved to Miami from out of state. Working with Marco has been a tremendous help in facilitating my moves and beyond what is necessary to make his clients feel comfortable while ensuring they are making the right choice, His honest and hardworking nature making him a pleasure to work with and I highly recommend him to anyone looking for housing in the Miami area."
"Marco is amazing! He’s so knowledgeable and works hard to find the best deal to fit your every need! As an out of state law student, I was already super stressed out, but Marco made the process of finding a place so easy. He was highly recommended by the University of Miami Law School and I can see why. He was willing to work to accommodate my schedule. On our tour he made me feel completely at ease and there were so many options to chose from. Thanks to Marco and his diligent team, I have a great apartment to call home!"
"I just wanted to shoot you an e-mail thanking you for helping us out with our condo. You were incredibly helpful, and the epitome of professionalism. The rental process was incredibly smooth, and I couldn’t be more pleased with where we ended up. I will be recommending you to the law school, and to all future contacts looking for residence in Miami. Thanks again."
"Marco couldn’t have been more wonderful! He organized the day taking our family to see ten beautiful properties. He provided invaluable insider information that we would never have gotten on our own. Marco helped our son choose an amazing first home away from home and then worked magic when the first condo fell through. We were really impressed when he told us up front about the low income housing nearby and that he wouldn’t take us to see an apartment that he wouldn’t send his sister to. I only wish we had a Marco in NYC!!!"

"Jem is a dream of an agent – knowledgeable, professional, reliable, and truly invested in her clients. She understood immediately what I was looking for and took the time to show me various neighborhoods and buildings, since I would have to decide on an apartment while still living out of town. I knew that I could rely on her to find me perfect place, and she absolutely delivered. I ended up being on vacation when the paperwork was going back and forth, and the fact that it got done at all is entirely due to her efforts and may qualify her for saint-hood. I chose to rent at first since I wasn’t sure if I would be in Miami long-term, but the city is certainly growing on me, and if I decide to buy I can’t imagine choosing a better agent."
"My experience with Marco and the Clavijo team was great! Having never been to Miami before my move-in day, I was very unfamiliar with the area. Marco was very helpful in informing me of all of the different areas of Miami, and providing me with great property selections. I was able to find the perfect home with Marco’s help, and he answered any questions I had during the process. I would recommend him to any of my friends or classmates."
"Upon finishing the Miami Law School bus tour in April visiting various communities, I immediately knew Marco was the person I wanted to entrust with making sure my move from New England to Miami would be without hiccups. Marco is the epitome of a professional, conducts himself with nothing but class, and is a walking encyclopedia of the area. Furthermore, he is more than just a realtor. He is your advocate, respectfully questioning the respective owner or rental community in … order to make sure you get the best deal and no corners are cut. I never would have thought I would have picked a place to live in less than 24 hours upon finishing a private tour with Marco this month. There is a reason the University of Miami chooses Marco to conduct the bus tour with prospective students. He should undoubtedly be the first face new students should see to help assuage them of any concerns that come with their upcoming move. He is “the” guy, and he actually makes the whole process enjoyable."
I am writing to express my satisfaction with the work of Marco Clavijo in helping me find my new apartment. Recently, I moved into a condo in South Miami. Because of the dedication, patience, and devotion to excellent service shown by Marco Clavijo, I was able to find an ideal condo. From the time I contacted Marco, he was sincere in making sure that my apartment fit my needs. He was very devoted in ensuring that I found an apartment that was secure, safe, and comfortable and in a location near the University of Miami. He displayed extreme patience as I was unsure whether I would be looking for a one bedroom or a two bedroom. However, he took the time to show me both places. Additionally, seeing how I am not as familiar with the area, it helped to have him assist me in this manner. I am very satisfied with the help and the assistance of Marco Clavijo. I greatly appreciate all of his help in this process and I would recommend him to anyone looking to move in the local area. He displayed nothing but professionalism and devotion throughout the entire process and it is only because of him that I am living in my current location. I greatly appreciate all of his help.
"I was referred to Marco by a school friend who spoke very highly of him. I now understand why. From the first phone call to the last email, Marco would always be sure to respond quickly and appropriately. I never once had trouble getting a hold of him or communicating with him. He was able to locate specific houses (we have a dog and needed a fence), and he came through for us. He did a wonderful and thorough job for us all around. Would recommend him to anyone and everyone looking for a real estate agent."
“Working with Marco from Elite exceeded all of my expectations. My daughter was relocating from New Jersey to attend Miami Law. We were not familiar with the area but Marco took the time to sit down with my daughter and I to determine her needs in a rental unit. He consistently communicated with us during the process and answered all of our questions and concerns while completing the rental documentation. He visited the apartment several times prior to the move to make sure everything was in order and even met us on move in day to make sure things went smoothly. I am pleased to say that my daughter is thrilled with her apartment. Marco is a true professional. I would not hesitate to recommend him for any type of real estate matter!”
"Marco was absolutely amazing. He organized everything while I was out of town. He took videos of multiple units, managed the paperwork, and even picked up the keys. He answered emails promptly, even on weekends, and I couldn’t be happier with the experience."
"Marco proved to be exactly what I was looking for in a realtor: professional, knowledgeable, and genuinely concerned about my needs. I’m transitioning to Coral Gables for school and he made a stressful process much easier. 5/5 for a reason!"
"Working with Marco was a phenomenal experience. He helped us assess our needs and price range, and secure a unit that fit both. I worked with Marco remotely from New York prior to moving down to Miami and he maintained clear and timely lines of communication and made the entire process quick and easy. I would recommend Marco without reservation to all looking for a great service and experience in Miami."
“Working with Jem and Marco at Elite Real Estate Associates could not have been a better experience for my first time looking for a place on my own! From the get-go, Jem was extremely communicative and helped inform me on the whole process of looking for, applying for, and signing on an apartment. Her husband and partner Marco met us for the apartment tour a few weeks later with a whole line-up of apartments around the area my roommate and I preferred to live in – the selection was impressively extensive, all apartments well under our budget, and all very beautiful. We ended up finding the best apartment we could have imagined, and with Marco’s help, put a deposit on it the very same day. When it was time to move in, Jem sent out emails to my roommate and myself offering help with the move-in and wishing us the best in our new home. In all, I was sincerely happy with Jem and Marco’s services. I would recommend anyone to contact them for help in finding, not just a new place, but a new home – they are the best, and you won’t be disappointed. Thanks again to them for introducing us to our new home!”
"We worked with Marco to find a place to rent near the University of Miami for Law School. We were making the short move from Fort Lauderdale to Miami, but still were not extremely familiar with the area. Marco was so helpful in taking our wants, needs, and expectations and guiding us to the properties that met those within our price range. We would recommend him to friends and family if they planned on moving down to Miami."
"Marco Clavijo has helped me find 2 places to rent now and both times it was a very pleasant and professional experience. He has helped me negotiate a better price and is always available to help and answer questions. I strongly recommend him and will continue to use him in the future ."
"I would like to personally thank you for your professional services during our search for the perfect place to live during Law School and Graduate School at the University of Miami. I truly appreciate your willingness to go above and beyond your obligations as a Real Estate agent, even taking phone calls and e-mails after hours and always responding very promptly to any and all questions and concerns that we had. Instead of showing us properties in a single location, your approach of providing a thorough tour of several different properties coupled with your informative insights about each area were invaluable in our search for a place. We will surely enlist your services in the future if we do choose to move (although the Condominium you found for us is perfect!), and will recommend your services to friends and family if they choose to move to the Miami area. Thanks again!"
