Avanti Way Realty, a top residential and commercial real estate brokerage powered by technology, has opened its 13th office at 2825 Business Center Blvd. in Melbourne, FL.  The rapidly growing firm has announced Lourdes Sliwa, a 14-year veteran and top producing agent with $20 million in production volume last year, has joined Avanti Way Realty as Branch Leader. Sliwa will oversee the opening and operations of the new Melbourne office and has brought Debbie Strawhand and Elizabeth Findley from her team with her. 

“I am thrilled to join Avanti Way Realty and showcase its state-of-the-art, pioneering technology to the Melbourne marketplace,” stated Lourdes Sliwa, branch leader. “I had never intended to open my own brokerage office, but as soon as I experienced all of the incredible technology Avanti Way provides, I knew I wanted to be a part of their spectacular growth. Their user-friendly, hyper-focused and data-rich platforms make agents’ jobs easier, and at the same time, provide clients with a clearly enhanced experience, making real estate a seamless and positive practice for everyone involved.” She added, “I believe that in this industry, if you are not changing and adapting to tech, you will be left behind. Avanti Way has armed me with valuable tools beyond compare and an unparalleled level of support that will catapult me and my team to next level.”

“We proudly welcome Lourdes to the Avanti Way family,” stated Andres Korda, principal, Avanti Way.  “She is a proven power leader, respected industry veteran, and the perfect ambassador to highlight our revolutionary approach and power of our proprietary ecosystem throughout Brevard County. We are confident she will make her mark and achieve great success in this dynamic market, and we look forward to helping her office grow and thrive.”

Having achieved its leading status as one of the most productive brokerage firms in Florida with a strong presence throughout South Florida, as well as recent expansions in Palm Beach County, Orlando, Tampa, Naples, and Jacksonville, the Melbourne office will serve the areas from Grant to Titusville.

The Melbourne office is part of Avanti Way Group’s aggressive strategic plan to enter 10 Florida markets by the end of 2022, focusing on penetrating growth markets across Florida with strong fundamentals including highly populated, already-developed cities that may be saturated with investor activity to help drive demand for their agents.
