Rafael Mendez is an Advisor at SVN | Saunders Ralston Dantzler Real Estate specializing in industrial, office, and special-use properties such as daycares and churches for investors, property owners, and businesses.
He provides commercial real estate services throughout the Greater Orlando Area focusing on investment analysis, needs analysis, market analysis, financial analysis, and site analysis.
Using these models, Rafael helps his clients with facilitating and identifying the best opportunities when making decisions regarding commercial real estate. Rafael’s drive and attitude for lifelong learning are accredited to his upbringing overseas and watching his uncle build and grow a successful commercial real estate investment business.
Rafael began his real estate career in March 2015 assisting investors, buyers, and sellers in residential real estate and later transitioned into commercial real estate in 2017. His focus on the details and a “client-centric” business model are what have catapulted his success and growth throughout the years.
“I feel the greatest sense of satisfaction when I can help my client understand whether or not it is the best time for them to move forward with a project. It’s not just about completing the deal. Putting your clients in the best position to succeed and grow and then seeing that growth take place is a feeling that you can’t replace,” said Rafael.
Rafael lives in Altamonte Springs and is married to his High School sweetheart with three children. He is involved in his community and volunteers with Habitat for Humanity Building Homes, Special Olympics, and serves on the board of directors for Commonsense Childbirth a Non-Profit Organization.
