Despite being of Venezuelan decent, Alexander Cuffia is a true Miami native. At a very young age, he moved to Venezuela for 8 years before returning to his birth place. Growing up in Weston, Alexander studied locally at St. Thomas Aquinas High School where he graduated with honors. From there, he moved to Gainesville where he studied at the University of Florida from 2004 through 2008. The last year of his college career, he made the choice to leave Gainesville in order to help his parents, Giancarlo and Ana Cuffia, establish and grow the offices of Engel & Volkers Sunny Isles Beach and Ft. Lauderdale Las Olas. Whilst doing so, Alex finished his last year of college at Nova Southeastern University where he graduated in 2008 with a Bachelor's degree in Finance and Business Administration.
Since the beginning of Engel & Volkers Sunny Isles Beach, the shop has outgrown its original office and has moved to 18170 Collins Avenue, where it is located today. The shop has grown from a small office of only 5 agents to an elite property shop with an exclusive team of 25 real estate advisors. Currently, the team is taking a step forward towards developments sales and looking forward to reaching new horizons.
