Mr. Karantzalis has recently obtained his real estate license and will soon be opening his own office to further assist the citizens of Broward County.
“Our real estate practice has really come together in the last year. We close all properties and do so quickly and efficiently; we take pride in making all the parties involved happy, calm and informed.”
