CORAL GABLES, FL-Having already capitalized on South Florida’s housing boom, Genesis International Realty is now going to focus on markets outside the US. The locally based sales and marketing firm was founded by president Elisa Garcia and vice president Graciela Gonzalez, who have 15 years experience.

The company specializes in pre-construction, resales and conversions for developers in Cancun, Costa Rica, Panama and St. Maarten. Services include strategic analysis and planning of properties, marketing and sales support. “The international market is stronger now than the United States,” Gonzalez tells “We look for an area within a market where there is a lot of development planned.”

“The markets we are in are global attractors because each has good investment potential in the short, medium and long terms,” Garcia says. “Strong economics, political stability and proximity to the United States, Canada and South America are among the selling points.”

Projects the company is currently involved with include Maioris Tower in Puerto Cancun, Mexico; Jaco Bay Ramada Condominiums and Resort in Costa Rica and Maioris Pacific Tower in Panama. The Maioris Tower in Mexico is being developed by Mallorca, Spain-based Maioris Group. The 20-story tower on more than 800 acres will offer 92 two-, three- and four-bedroom units and access to an 18-hole Tom Weiskopf Championship Resort Golf Course. Prices range from $436,000 to over $2 million.

Central America-based Grupo Zeta is developing Jaco Bay Ramada Condominiums and Resort. The project will include seven 10-story towers with 36 units in each tower and two penthouses. Prices for the furnished units range from the $300,000s to the $800,000s.
