Adriana Alvarez-Higgins was born and raised in Bogota, Colombia. After receiving her BA in Graphic Design and Graduate diplomas in Marketing Strategy and Business Management from the Universidad Javeriana, Adriana built a successful career in advertising and marketing in the banking and media and entertainment sectors. She moved to the United States in 1999.
Adriana’s educational and professional background coupled with her fluency in Spanish, and even more importantly, her business acumen, has well-positioned Adriana for a transition to residential real estate. In the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex, a geographically desirable part of the country where tens of thousands are flocking to live and invest from all over the world, including from Spanish-speaking countries, she has served as an ambassador for the area.
To enhance her already impressive credentials, Adriana took the step of achieving the “Certified International Property Specialist” designation from the National Association of Realtors®. Because international real estate transactions are significantly different and more complex than domestic transactions, from currency issues and financing to visa and tax laws, working with a REALTOR® who knows how to handle these differences is imperative. International real estate agents have access to a wide network of professionals to assist you with inbound or outbound transactions around the globe. There are only 3,500 international property professionals doing business in fifty countries, and Adriana is one of them. She also serves on the MetroTex Global Business Council.
Adriana has been in real estate since 2010. When she is not busy helping buyers and sellers across the globe connect, she enjoys spending time with family and friends or traveling and learning about other cultures.
