Iliana Abella

    • After living in Boston, Minneapolis, Tampa, Orlando and two cities in North Carolina, we moved to Miami. Ms Abella helped us relocate, find a rental, get to know the city of Miami and the County and found us the ideal house for our family. She also helped my adult son rent an apartment. Her team is very service-oriented like few are in this city. She truly understands the city and goes out of her way to understand your needs. Excellent Professional!

      - Phil and Roxana Fernandez South Miami, FL
    • Iliana has been the family realtor for many years. She has a vast knowledge of the market. Iliana understood the importance of getting our house sold while we were looking to buy our dream house. Once she found a buyer for our house she worked extra hard to find us a new house so we would not have to rent a property. She worked nights and weekends and everything fell in to place perfectly. She gives 110%. We really can't imagine getting any better service than this. We love our new home and we have her to thank! Maria I Hernandez

    • Iliana and her wonderful staff patiently helped my husband and I find a home for the better part of a year. She was persistent, professional and quick to identify the type of home we were looking for. I would highly recommend her as an honest and very knowledgeable realtor in the South Florida market!

      - Haydee Pino Parada Miami, FL
    • She is the most incredible realtor that cater to each client needs. Always available 24/7, always ready to help with any kind of problem. She is a real solutions finder and always with a smile. In four years she handled 10 properties for me (buying and selling) most of the time with me being abroad, she fully represented my interests and I had complete trust on her judgement. Highly recommended.

      - Daria Alfonso Coral Gables, FL
    • Iliana is an excellent realtor-- very professional and efficient with her time and her clients' time as well. She was able to find a buyer for my Brickell Key condo in a matter of weeks and negotiated a good deal on my behalf. I highly recommend Iliana to anyone looking to buy or sell a residence in Miami.

      - Kelly Penton Brickell Key, FL
    • When we met with Iliana, our home on Riviera Drive in Coral Gables had already been on the market for nearly a year, with no serious offers. She came to us with a plan to sell our house within 3 months for a price we could not refuse. Not 2 months later we were signing papers and beginning the moving process! She set up half a dozen open houses and private showings, bringing many interested buyers (more open houses than the previous realtor did in nearly a year). She is very knowledgeable in the field of real estate and in the Miami housing market. She is a strong negotiator and fought to get us the best possible price for our property. I have only good things to say, Iliana is truly an exceptional real estate broker. I highly recommend her if you want a courteous, diligent, and intelligent broker that will work hard to find you a home or sell your home.

      - Peggy and Greg Ruiz Coral Gables, FL
    • We used her to purchase a home in Coral Gables and were very happy with everything. She was able to explain the neighborhood well as a local resident and found us a house that we are very happy with.

      - Robert Franz Coral Gables, FL
    • My business relationship with Iliana spans several years. She's thorough and results oriented. She saw me through the rental and eventual sale phases of my property during challenging economic times, and maintained an admirable level of professionalism and compassion though the ordeal. She's my go-to agent in Miami real estate.

      - Barbara Smith Coral Gables, FL
    • Iliana will go above and beyond to make sure you are exposed to every home you may be interested in. She was very helpful throughout the whole process of purchasing my home and even after the purchase. I was more than pleased with her as my real estate agent and will definitely use her services in the future if need be.

      - Pedro Infante Coconut Grove, FL
    • I highly recommend Iliana Abella as a selling agent. My husband and I do not live in the United States and Iliana managed everything for us with no complications. She is very knowledgeable of the city/market and of the intricate details involved in the buy/sell process. Due to her close working relationship with the management company in our building, she was able to respond quickly to any issues involving our apartment and the building in general. She patiently worked with us and was very proactive and diligent in dealing with the buyers agents. Thank you

    • Very professional, lot of local contacts. Se succeeds to present us a lot of properties in a short time. She finally found exactly the home that we were looking for.

      - Kevin Del Bare Miami, FL
    • Iliana was very focused and determined to find the right home for our family. She took the time to listen and understand our wants, desires, and budget. She worked under some very restrictive and specific constraints (borderline unrealistic) to help find the perfect home for us. We saw several houses over several months in several neighborhoods to get to the right house. She was very positive, patient, and truly invested in succeeding for us. It was a pleasure working with her and her staff and I highly recommend her to my friends and associates. She got the job done from the beginning through the closing.

      - Nilvis Rodriguez Miami, FL
    • Thank you Iliana for the professional & open conversation experience in purchasing my first Home. Your knowledge of the housing inventory in South Florida & experience closing complicated deals streamlined the entire process, especially that this was an estate sale.

      - Juan Guerrero Coral Gables, FL
    • Iliana is a great agent, professional and personable. She facilitates the conversation among various parties and helps ensure a smooth transaction process. As a buyer under time-constraints for closing, I had an issue with my non-responsive and unprofessional mortgage banker. Iliana went out of her way to help me follow up through her personal contact with this banker, even though it's not her responsibility at all. I highly recommend Iliana and her team.

      - Cynthia Klitbo Gamboa Miami, FL
    • I met Iliana at an open house for a home I was interested in. That home was not a fit for my family, but in talking to her I found she was genuine and easy to work with. She earned my trust and never disappointed. We had an extremely complicated buy/sell situation and throughout the process she was attentive to our every need. Her staff was responsive and truly a pleasure to work with.I have no reservations recommended Iliana and her team to handle all of your real estate needs.

      - Mohammed Abu Tayeh and Alia Al-Kraisha Coral Gables, FL
    • My husband and I were out-of-towners trying to find a home in Coral Gables/Coconut Grove. Iliana was great sending us listings and recommending areas to focus on and what the true value of properties were. Not knowing if we wanted a single family house or condo - she was extremely patient showing us both options. She grew to learn our style and quickly booked showings to maximize our trips to the area. She is very knowledgeable of the area and has deep connections to other brokers and their listing and potential listings. Her efforts paid off! We found the perfect home and bought at a great price. She has worked above and beyond. Shes still helping us with loose ends and we are most grateful.
