2021 Pinnacle Award recipient, Top 2% of agents company-wide, and #1 New Dev team Florida award, The APT Team has marketed and sold the most exclusive properties, condos, homes, and developments in Miami for over 15 years. They are consistently in the top percentile of South Florida agents as well as Douglas Elliman agents company-wide. Most recently, they crowned the $300 million sell out of One Park Grove. The APT TEAM has secured a well-deserved place among the most sought out brokers around. There is no negotiation too big or too small for Adriana and Tracy. With a portfolio that caters to discerning clients and including every property type from the area’s best single-family homes to oceanfront condos to million dollar plus properties, every client can expect exceptional service, as evidenced by their expanding client list, impressive track record, and a large percentage of referral business.​​​

Understanding well how interconnections and global synergies benefit their customers, the APT Team has established a strong network of buyers, sellers, and brokers that encompasses the U.S. North-East corridor, the nation’s capital, and Midwest, Europe, and Latin America. Of course, it also is a strong plus that Adriana Pinto-Torres, Tracy Ferrer is very hardworking and unwavering, is fluent in Spanish, English, French, German, and is very comfortable with Portuguese. Their customers benefit from Adriana and Tracy’s routine business trips to Latin America, Europe, and the nation. From the first contact with their customer to the negotiating table, they firmly believe that serving their clientele is a privilege, not a right. As industry leaders, they know that the key to long-standing success is anticipating and exceeding customer needs and creating innovative marketing and business initiatives for the leading edge.

They continuously strive to be better, quicker, and more responsive to each of our customer’s needs and preferences so that he or she chooses to continue doing business with them. Yes, they can and do evolve as business circumstances demand. But, they don’t get hung up with momentary enthusiasm or get caught up in the hype.

Their clientele is as diverse as their needs from celebrities to couples, from hedge fund managers to international companies, from retiring baby boomers to seasoned buyers and sellers and first-time Miami owners. They have established a varied customer portfolio and no transaction is ever too big or too small. What’s more, they can pride themselves in saying that at least 65% of their business is referral-based.
