Fortune International Realty was founded in 1983 by Edgardo Defortuna. Since then, the company experienced exponential growth to include brokerage activities, property management, financing, new development sales and proprietary developments. What started as a boutique company has now become one of the leading real estate firms in South Florida with 12 local offices as well as 6 international locations.
Fortune opened its first office in Key Biscayne and later expanded to other key areas of Miami. In 2001 a new branch was opened in Brickell in order to handle the sales of Jade Residences at Brickell Bay, the first proprietary development of its parent company, Fortune International Group.
Fortune's remarkable success is a result of its steadfast commitment to best-in-class service and unparalleled market expertise, two of its most fundamental brand missions. Since the company's inception, FIR has effectively adapted to dynamic/evolving market fluctuations while continuing to uphold its dedication to the highest standard of professional excellence and integrity. These are just a few of the many reasons Fortune International is widely recognized among industry peers and discerning clientele as a leading luxury real estate organization in South Florida.
Today, Fortune International is proud to be a member of Who’s Who in Real Estate, a premier global organization that brings together worldwide industry leaders and luxury properties from all over the world; and it was awarded “Best Real Estate Agent and Best Floridian Agent” by The Bentley International Property Awards.
