Antonio Lopez

Since high school, Antonio knew real estate was one of his passions. Antonio has owned several businesses including a car dealership before he graduated with a Psychology degree from Florida international University. Antonio got a true taste of real estate investing when he purchased his first investment property in 2009. After earning his degree, one of the top 100 Companies in The US invited Antonio to work for them. Antonio became the top producer but corporate America couldn’t keep up with Antonio’s dreams of success and entrepreneurship. In 2013, Antonio decided to get his real estate license and join the mentorship program at the Broward Real Estate Investors Association. Although almost immediately successful in real estate, Antonio struggled and persevered to open a successful real estate investment company, Antlop Investment Properties, and became Miami’s number one short sale expert. Many families have been kept out of foreclosure because of Antonio’s commitment to distressed homeowners. Antonio since then has been invited to be the Director for both the Miami-Dade and Broward real estate investors Association. His future intentions are to grow the Miami-Dade and Broward REIA chapters and share his knowledge of real estate investing to the next generation of investors and money-makers.
