He’s a product of the local public school system and holds a Bachelor of Architecture from the University of Miami - School of Architecture where he also studied real estate, engineering and photography.
For about 30 years, Carlos practiced architecture - 15 as principal-owner of a local architectural firm that under his leadership was recognized by the South Florida Business Journal as "Top 25 Architectural Firms in South Florida". After selling the company he co-founded, he became Sr. VP of The Collage Companies (an Orlando based construction company) and VP of 3D/International (now Parsons Corporation).

Carlos was committed to sustainable living since 1972 when he interned with a former student of Frank Lloyd Wright; one of the authors of organic architecture, the predecessor of Green architecture. Carlos drives a hybrid and lives in a green home. Changing to a hybrid saves him over $1,200/yr and about 320 gallons of gasoline. His green house saves him over $3,000/year in electricity.
He joined EWMRealtors, a Berkshire Hathaway affiliate, in 2003 and is a multi-million dollar producer. But his greatest satisfaction and recognition comes from the people he helps. It is the testimony of his clients that drives Carlos to provide exceptional service. His experience and EWM capabilities make it a perfect combination for providing exceptional service.
