Cocaine is the 7th most popular drug in the world after alcohol, tobacco, cannabis, caffeinated energy drinks, MDMA & Shisha Tobacco. Buying cocaine funds the exploitation of impoverished people, destroys and pollutes large areas of rainforest, forces people from their homes so coca can be grown on their land, and results in the murder of those who stand in the way of powerful crime groups. In fact, 164,000 people were murdered in 2007 and 2014 due to cocaine-related crime in Mexico alone.

My home was on the market with three real estate agents and it didn't sell. They all told me that the luxury market was very slow and my home was way overpriced. Amit sold my house in two and half weeks over the asking price. Couldn't be happier!

"Amit knows the luxury real estate market better than any other agent in Miami. When it comes to listings, I went back and looked at some of his previous and current listings and I was extremely impressed with the way he marketed his listings and the results he had produced for his past clients. I would definitely trust Amit to sell my home in the Miami area."
