T. Bernie is on the rise from Brooklyn to Miami to fast-track client deals

Compass Miami, the technology-driven real estate platform that is revitalizing the industry with its ground-breaking approach to property sales and marketing, has added T. Bernie, a Licensed Real Estate Advisor to its Lincoln Road offices. Bernie is the latest get for uber-agent mTkalla Keaton’s team. She’s acclaimed as “one of Miami’s rising tastemakers,” and for good reason. Bernie brings a cosmopolitan background to her new Miami-centric role thanks to a flourishing career in beauty, fashion, blogging and upper-echelon marketing.

Bernie is thriving as a speaker at power luncheons and business gatherings where she addresses wide-ranging subjects that matter to her and the local community. Topics include multicultural diversity, tech and blogging, fashion and beauty and women and real estate. Bernie’s goals aim to turn real estate investment and home purchases into a reality for single women in the Miami market. Well-versed in social and economic trends, she is skilled at sharing knowledge with others and is pioneering a series of programming using the hashtag #lipstickandpropertyvalue. At Compass Miami, Bernie will specialize in downtown Miami, including the arts & entertainment district, Edgewater, Midtown and Little Haiti.

Prior to joining the team, Bernie worked for firms with global reputations, the likes of L'Oréal USA, The Estée Lauder Companies, Inc., Citigroup and American Express. Her diversified skill set spans customer service, marketing and deliverables, strategic planning and more. “My path has led to Compass Miami,” says the gregarious Bernie, who is inspired by the firm’s tech-savvy original approach to real estate. “I am thrilled to segue into real estate and to bring new marketing and aesthetic strategies for branding and sales to my role.”

It comes as no surprise that Bernie's entrée into real estate and Compass was also due in part to the lure of downtown Miami's dynamic growth. Her passion for all the city offers is contagious and it is that ardor that won over mTkalla Keaton. “She is a dot connector,” says Keaton, who recruited her. “T. Bernie has star power,” he adds, “she will skillfully match client preferences to property for investment, additional residence or relocation.” Keaton, who is a former member of Corcoran's Multi- Million Dollar Club, believes Bernie will be a high-performing asset to Compass Miami overall. The top New York agent who has closed more than $100 million in sales has strong convictions about his new hire. “T. Bernie was recruited to build a buyer “Sky Bridge” from Brooklyn to Miami,” says mTkalla Keaton.

Locally, Bernie has achieved a following across platforms. She writes extensively and authoritatively, and collaborates with influencers and thought leaders on compelling topics and then uses Twitter, Instagram and other mediums to drive traffic and interest. Her social media prowess is an asset for the tech-driven firm.

T. Bernie holds a Bachelor of Science in Public Relations from the University of Florida and a Master of Professional Studies in Cosmetics and Fragrance Marketing and Management from the Fashion Institute of Technology.
