Lipe is the founder and president of The Sofi Property Group at Douglas Elliman.
Prior to founding The SoFi Group, Lipe worked at Related Cervera, the sales subsidiary of The Related Group in South Florida. He first dabbled in real estate development in Miami in the early nineties, while attending University of Miami. He then spent 12 years living in NYC, where he co-founded and ran one of the first luxury lifestyle shops in the US – Language, winner of the prestigious Fashion Group International (www.fgi.org) Rising Star award for Best Luxury Fashion Store in the US (the same award given to Tom Ford for Gucci in a previous year) – and an eponymous luxury fashion brand.
Given his extensive experience with luxury marketing and branding, a vast international network, and his previous involvement in real estate development, Lipe chose a career in luxury real estate sales and marketing upon his move back to Miami in 2004. Since founding The SoFi Group, Lipe has already been named the top Keller Williams agent in South Florida, and among the top 10 in the nation.
Lipe was also chosen as one of the Top Real Estate Agents in Miami (Miami Magazine 2009 and 2010) and one of the Top 100 most influential people in South Florida (Haute Living Magazine, May 2011). Lipe is originally from Sao Paulo, Brazil.
