Get to know Luis
Luis D. Ortiz was born in Hospital El Maestro in Hato Rey, PR. He grew up in the city of Guaynabo, PR with his mother, father and twin brother. Today he is one of Bravo’s most inspiring personalities co-starring in the Network’s emmy nominated hit “Million Dollar Listing New York”. The series follows Luis as he brokers the buying and selling of luxury properties in New York City’s real estate market.
Ortiz has worked as a real estate broker for the past eight years. He has helped major players in New York City – from partners at Goldman Sachs to celebrities like Leonardo DiCaprio & Sandra Lee – find their perfect homes. While working at some of New York’s most successful boutique brokerages, such as Prodigy Network and Synergy, Ortiz had the opportunity to represent some of the most aspiring developments downtown, such as Cipriani Residences (55 Wall Street), The Setai (40 Broad Street), and The District (111 Fulton Street). Later, Ortiz became the Vice President of Keller Williams NYC and later decide to join New York’s #1 real estate brokerage Douglas Elliman and start his own real estate group – Ortiz & Co. He has been at Douglas Elliman for 3 years and has received the Pinnacle award each year.
Before joining the real estate industry, Ortiz studied film direction at, completing the Director’s Program in 2006. During these years he directed and produced many music videos and short film. Among these are the short film “Amalia”, which won Best Direction in Puerto Rico Film Festival in 2007 and “Chino y Nacho (feat. Don Omar) – Dentro de Mi”, which he helped produce. Working on such projects allowed Ortiz the opportunity to travel to many cities in Mexico, Colombia, Bolivia, and the US.
Ortiz implemented his knowledge as a Director and Producer onto his real estate business – treating every real estate transaction as a production. Ortiz directs the process from the very first idea through to its full execution and motivates everyone involved with a genuine eagerness to deliver at the highest level possible, while leading in a way that emphasizes everyone’s importance in the transaction. This enables him to develop an extensive and ever-evolving knowledge of the real estate market and to fully understand every client’s need.
Ortiz has sold more than $100 million in residential real estate over the past three years. However, making money wasn’t his main motivation; Ortiz was driven by the adrenaline that came with every deal.
Ortiz has also been a main speaker in different public speaking seminars talking primarily about how to re-invent yourself and how important is to get to know oneself in order to be successful in business. He is looking to inspire young kids and professionals into reaching their dreams through future speaking events.
