The Real Deal Miami

The epic of Jorge Perez

Jorge Perez, the CEO of the Miami-based Related Group, doesn’t worry about the
narratives of his last two years in the fallout from the real estate
bubble. “You do what you do, and at the end of the day you live with the
results,” said Perez, who has added many of the buildings on Miami’s
skyline in the last decade. According to Perez, 62, the firm is now
completely debt-free, and he considers the last two years to be his
finest work. “As you look back on the crash, Related was able to skate
through it all and do fairly well because of their power, their
expertise and their ability to control such a large part of the market,”
said Peter Zalewski, founder of Condo Vultures. [Miami
