Charles CelesiaAdvisor
High-touch. High-service. Lifelong relationships.

As a Founding Agent of Compass Florida, and with over 10 years of daily experience in Miami’s Real Estate industry, Charles Celesia has advised, managed, and closed on over $100 million dollars of investment opportunities on behalf of his clients, friends, and own personal portfolio.

Lifelong relationships, developed through trust and friendship, motivate Charles to continue providing the highest quality of service in Miami. Often a topic of jest, Charles is known to be responsive at all times of the day and night, answering emails and texts within minutes.

Naturally loving to spend time developing relationships and learning more about his clients on a personal level, you’ll find Charles and his clients laughing over a few drinks during brunch, sharing a night out in the town, or at holiday BBQs.

An Active Investor:

Having leveraged relationships and market-specific knowledge, Charles’ personal portfolio has included over nine condo acquisitions & subsequent sales, two single family homes, and contributions as an LP in five, mixed-use projects throughout Sunnyside-Queens and Astoria, NY.

As an advisor, Charles believes in an educational approach to each and every acquisition; applying his personal experiences and learnings in an easily digestible manner for everyone from first-time homebuyers, to the savvy, institutional investor. Value-add projects being a speciality, Charles, himself, has completed several renovations projects, affording the ability to share his extensive knowledge throughout the process.

Charles obtained a Bachelor’s degree in Business Management from George Mason University’s School of Management. Once an avid, collegiate runner, he believes each weekend should start off with a long-run and a Cuban coffee shared with friends & family.

Mary has been passionate about real estate as long as she can remember. She grew up in the suburbs of New York City and began her involvement with her family’s property management business as a teenager. She had a successful career in law in New York City and spent several years on Wall Street, conducting debt restructuring for municipal and corporate clients, and then later cross-border transactions with a largely Latin American focus. She moved to Buenos Aires, Argentina where she lived and worked for several years before moving back to the United States. After working for several more years as a lawyer in New York City, she moved to Miami and earned her Florida real estate license and joined Compass as a real estate agent in Miami.

Mary has a dynamic and warm personality and is always excited to serve as an advisor to clients. She easily relates to her clients and loves getting to know their personalities and assisting them on all aspects of their real estate transactions.

Mary is an alumna of the University of Maryland, where she earned a Bachelor’s degree, and St. John’s University, where she earned her Juris doctorate. She is a member of the executive board of the Sigma Kappa Miami alumnae chapter. She loves to cook and entertain, and in her spare time, she enjoys running, yoga, reading and watching baseball. She speaks Spanish and English and resides in Key Biscayne with her husband and two children.
