During Art Basel Week, Venegas International Group—a top boutique real estate firm based Miami—is debuting a “Sports, Arts, & Entertainment Division,” created to cater to professional athletes, artists, art collectors, and entertainers, who have been flocking to the city in increasing numbers.
“As Miami continues to grow and attract [prominent figures], it is important to cater this elite clientele in a way they are accustomed to,” says Monica Venegas, the principal of Venegas International Group.
Hope Gainer—who has over 35 years of experience handling world-class athletes and entertainers, as well as musicians and artists on a global scale—has been tapped to helm the division, given her unparalleled expertise in maintaining relationships with A-listers with demanding work schedules and strong personalities.
The new sector will be based conveniently across the street from the American Airlines Arena, where the Miami Heat plays and many entertainers perform, and in the vicinity of the Performing Arts Center and the new Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM).
The company’s corporate philosophy revolves around focusing on developing close, long-term relationships with clients around the world, and to consistently meet the high demands of its VIP clientele.
“My real estate business is run more like an investment bank,” Venegas says. We advise our elite clients as a private bank would, recommending investments that diversify and enrich each individual’s portfolio, while providing them with everything they need to acquire a property.”
It’s a strategy that’s worked—to date, Venegas International Group’s founder has overseen over $2 billion in real estate sales, and doesn’t show signs of slowing down.
As summed up by Garner, “Everyone wants a piece of the Miami pie. [And] we are here to inform, educate and provide a full turnkey service to this elite clientele.”
