There are many things I can say about the high quality of service I can provide to my home seller and home buyer clients, but probably none would be as credible as testimonials from my personal clients themselves. So please take a moment to read the following testimonials. I hope they indicate my experience and integrity, as well as make it clear how much I enjoy helping people with their real estate needs. I would be happy to provide a list of my most recent real estate transactions.



We have had the pleasure to have worked with Ray and Leslie Navarro for more than 5 years. They have assisted us in both buying and selling high end properties in good economies and bad. In each case the experience has been outstanding. Ray took the time to get to know us personally and really understand what we wanted and what was realistically within our budget. A call or visit with Ray was never time wasted.

In addition to being extremely in-tune with the real-estate market Ray has a wide network of experts to assist with everything from financing to renovation and repairs. He does not just hand you a list of names, but he arranged for estimates and scheduled appointments. I can clearly say that Ray and Leslie earn every penny of their commission.

If you are looking for the hardest working, most innovative man in real-estate, you won’t be disappointed with Ray Navarro.

     I would like to say that both my wife and I are very grateful for having helped us find our home in Miami, which has made our move from Europe a reality! I have to say that what seemed to be so easy actually isn't, purchasing a home in Miami is definitively something that requires expertise and deep understanding, and we are so glad your provided us with great counseling and guided us in this very important decision. We will definitively spread the word with our friends, but will also be happy to talk to any of your potential clients, buyer or sellers, so that they better understand how important it is to have the right realtor.
Best regards,

The Visiers family


     Again, I thank you for the wonderful job you did in the sale of our
home. Even in this slow real estate market you were able to sell our
home in a timely matter. Like always, we really enjoyed working with

Jose Miguel and Denise Hernandez

     Ray Navarro worked tirelessly and resourcefully through the adversities of a slowing real estate market and any number of demanding and difficult buyers. He and his team not only provided maximum exposure for our home but practical and essential advice as we faced a series of difficult decisions in the same process. It was only through his persistence and resourcefulness that we were successful in closing on the sale of our home while other similar properties continue to languish in a depressed market.

He is always attentive to the varied needs of his clients and is consistently service-minded while at the same time maintaining the highest degree of confidentiality - all attributes any client would want from a real estate broker.

      Our experience with the Navarro Group was simply fantastic! Ray and Leslie took the time to understand our needs and then found us the perfect home solution. In addition, they periodically check-in with us to ensure our satisfaction and offer any needed assistance. We highly recommend this team of professionals.

    The Navarro Group is a dynamic team. With them there is no sales pitch or pressure. They are knowledgeable, professional and personable. We have worked with them in numerous investment/commercial transactions. When it came time to buy our own home, without hesitation, we called Ray and Leslie. I highly recommend The Navarro Group!

Richard J Diaz and Ana Santisteban-Diaz, Attorneys 

      I have know Ray both personally and professionally for more than 10 years and have worked with the Navarro Group for many years, both as real estate agents for me personally as well as on behalf of my clients. I have the utmost respect for their integrity, knowledge and professionalism and never hesitate in referring even the most discerning client to them.

      After many months of wasted time and the frustration of trying the "Do it yourself" approach to finding an apartment, I luckily found Leslie Navarro. She quickly assessed my needs and showed me a selection of apartments perfectly suited to my requirements. Due to personal circumstances, I needed to find an apartment quickly. Not only did Leslie find me the right apartment, but she had the deal closed and had me moved in within a 2-week period of time.

Leslie's expertise and professionalism made the process of finding a home effortless. I genuinely recommend her services.

A very grateful client,
Leticia Toimil

     Over the past four years, our family has exclusively relied upon Ray Navarro for all our real estate needs. Following Ray's advice, I have timely sold and purchased three homes enabling me to enjoy a substantial profit upon each sale with my final purchase of my residence having increased almost 100% since purchase. I can highly recommend Mr. Navarro as I respect his professionalism, ethics and hard work.

      Ray and Leslie Navarro are the dream team when it comes to Realtors. After my father passed away, I had the difficult task of selling our family home. I live out of town and Ray and Leslie were highly recommended by a friend. They are knowledgeable about the market and advised me so that I could make educated decisions about all aspect of the sale and kept me informed on the progression of the showings and sale. Throughout this process, the Navarro’s handled the sale with the dignity and respect that my father, a former Real Estate Broker, would have admired and respected. They were concerned about my brother, who was still residing at the residence, and assisted him in finding a new place to live before the sale was final. I would highly recommend that anyone needing professional and efficient real estate services, seek out Ray and Leslie Navarro of Avatar Real Estate Services to handle their sales and buying needs. You will be pleased by their personalized service and professionalism.

Most sincerely, 

Michele Vann


   "Professionalism and Trust", that is the best way that we can describe the service that you provided to us. You were prepared to answer our questions and concerns as well as able to give us advice and honest opinions regarding our property for sale. Now a days, there is no easy market to sell or to buy, valuable advice is essential, you came to us with the numbers and the possibilities. Thank you from our hearts.

   "If I had to rate Ray and Leslie Navarro on a scale of 1 to 10, they deserve a 10+!!! They could not have made selling our father's home any easier.  Extremely helpful, professional, and knowledgeable!  They went the extra mile on everything!  I would certainly use them again and refer them to anyone in need of a great real estate broker/sales associate."

Laura Weinkle


   The term I would use for Ray and Leslie is soup to nuts service. They are with you the entire process, from choosing a good listing price ( I got a better price using them); preparing the home to be sold, effective marketing and showing home, negotiation with buyer and finally going thru steps necessary to close the sale. They also helped us in buying a home by being in touch with fellow realtors on someone looking to sell before the property hit the market. We have remained friends and I would recommend them to anyone.

   Our 3 bedroom 3 bath home with a pool in a very pleasant neighborhood was on the market for sale by owner for over a year.  We didn’t have one offer.  We kept wondering what was wrong.  We loved our house and had lived there for over 20 years.  Surely, there would be plenty of people wanting to buy it.  So we called Ray and Leslie Navarro from Avatar.  Everything changed.  They first gave us advice on some minor improvements that could make a difference.  We complied with all their recommendations.  Immediately, we started getting prospective buyers.  We were very impressed with their professionalism, and patience with us, listening to everything we wanted.  They took care of everything, from taking pictures of our house and uploading them to their listings, screening buyers and making the appointments.  They made everything very easy and smooth.  We had no worries, they were handling everything.  We received one offer that we turned down because it was a little too low, but within a couple of months, we received a solid offer and sold our house.  We truly believe that we were able to sell our house thanks to Ray and Leslie.
