Mariano Solinap is a leading REALTOR® based in El Monte, California. Working with Realty Visions, Mariano serves clients throughout Los Angeles County and the Inland Empire, which includes Riverside and San Bernardino Counties. Since beginning his career over ten years ago, Mariano has garnered a reputation for both his market expertise and his industry-leading client service, earning him a clientele that is nearly entirely referral-based.
Originally from the Philippines, Mariano worked as a Certified Public Accountant before beginning his career in real estate. Looking back, he recalls why he decided to make the transition:
As a Realtor, I have more time to be with my family. As an accountant, I had to work eight hours a day at the office. But now, I have an office in the house, and I get to have a flexible schedule, which also allows me to work around the needs of my clients.
Today, Mariano leverages his prior experience as a CPA to help clients navigate the financial complexities of pursuing their real estate goals. From buying and renting to selling and investing, he is well-versed in the legal and financial aspects of a transaction, and smoothly guides those with whom he works around potential pitfalls and helping them to enjoy the journey along the way.
Mariano combines this in-depth knowledge with extensive familiarity with the local markets, keeping up-to-date on the latest developments throughout Los Angeles and the Inland Empire to give his clients an edge. In addition to these areas, he also serves Orange County.
What truly sets Mariano apart from the competition is his unmatched customer service. Commenting on his commitment to his clients, he said:
My approach is very simple! I answer my phone, do exactly what I tell you I will do, and I treat every transaction as if it were my own. Working with a sense of urgency is a difference-maker in this market and fighting for every penny is what I do for every client. I'm passionate about my career and at the end of the day, you either get it done or you don't.
With his first successful decade in real estate behind him, Mariano’s business continues to grow. Envisioning significant expansion in the years ahead, he recently hired four new agents, whom he looks forward to taking under his wing and teaching the tricks of the trade. In the not-too-distant future, Mariano hopes to have as many as ten agents working under him.
Mariano also recently co-founded GMJ Ventures, a company dedicated to helping clients with purchasing, managing, and selling investment properties. Opened in December of 2017, GMJ provides financial guidance, expert marketing strategies, and even assists with securing financing sources for real estate investors. Additionally, Mariano is currently in the process of earning his broker’s license.
