Meet Geane Brito of Geane Brito Group at Compass in Miami Beach

Today we’d like to introduce you to Geane Brito.

So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
I was born in Brazil and educated in New York. Miami was my home away from the madness of New York City and when I had my first child, Miami became a full-time residence. I just loved the way the city flows with the sun, how I feel so fortunate when I say goodbye to friends who are visiting and I am the lucky one to call this place my home. My love of Miami, its trees, beaches, dive restaurants, and a myriad or architecture just inspires me daily- I run a team of professional realtors at Compass, where we pretty much get to guide folks to their Miami homes. It is a very rewarding job– sometimes we represent Sellers, and we get to explore all the nuances of their homes. I get especially excited about working on listings of homes of historic relevance. Right now I am selling a home from the 1920’s and a wonderful property that use to be a Mango plantation from the turn of the century. Another great thrill is to help folks find a special place to call their own, to help them a special slice of the city, such as a small Miami Modern garden house hidden in Morningside.

The route to my place in life right now has been through a lot of work, and plain and simple passion for my Miami community. Miami is so very multicultural and diversity is very important for me as a Latino woman. Where in the USA would find a city with so many languages heard in its streets, so many types of coffee, all coexisting in this little piece of Paradise?

Has it been a smooth road?
I was very lucky because, from age 12, I was certain that in order to travel, I had to learn as many languages as possible. So I spent most of the savings from my teen summer jobs in English language classes. I had a few great opportunities in my life, and one of them was the chance to come to New York to work as a model in 1989. As soon as I could, I applied to college here. Working full time — and waiting tables on weekends because getting modeling jobs was difficult — was a hard way to keep up the GPA. However, I managed to finish college and conclude a Masters Degree at NYU in Journalism. Funny enough just when I should have embarked on my academic life, the modeling gig actually started to pay off as I was hired to work with Calvin Klein and few other cool designers in New York. The road was never smooth, but it was fun, dangerous and full of color. I would not change anything. I took every simple influence in my life, from designers to professors, to chefs and mentors to mold my own game and I still try very much to be true to my very passionate soul – trying to do a very inspiring feat every few years, such as running two NYC Marathons. I feel I owe that to my teenage kids- everyone needs to be inspired, and I hope I am one of those sources of inspirations!
