Our Clients


Iliana has been my realtor for the past 7 years, she found the last two units I have lived in. She has always negotiated on my behalf,and no matter how tough things got,she always did it with a smile on her face,she is very knowledgeable and one of the hardest working people I know I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a real estate agent,she actually does what she says she is going to do.

Iliana was very focused and determined to find the right home for our family. She took the time to listen and understand our wants, desires, and budget. She worked under some very restrictive and specific constraints (borderline unrealistic) to help find the perfect home for us. We saw several houses over several months in several neighborhoods to get to the right house. She was very positive, patient, and truly invested in succeeding for us. It was a pleasure working with her and her staff and I highly recommend her to my friends and associates. She got the job done from the beginning through the closing.

Thank you Iliana for the professional & open conversation experience in purchasing my first Home. Your knowledge of the housing inventory in South Florida & experience closing complicated deals streamlined the entire process, especially that this was an estate sale. It was a pleasure working with you & I would recommend anyone reading this review to contact her immediately for any real estate needs.

I can't say enough about the exceptional service provided by Iliana Abella from The Abella Group/. Iliana went above and beyond in developing a comprehensive sales and marketing plan for the sale of my luxury residential property in a very competitive area, and her dedication truly made all the difference. From the very beginning, Iliana displayed a profound understanding of the real estate market. Her expertise was evident as she meticulously planned open houses, expertly staged our furniture to enhance the property's appeal, and conducted showings that left potential buyers in awe. It was clear that she had a keen eye for detail and a genuine passion for what she does. The property was sold in a week when the initial realtors had it for several months! What truly sets Iliana apart is her project management prowess. She effortlessly juggled various tasks and ensured that every aspect of our sales process ran smoothly. Her commitment to managing our project from "cradle to grave" and to take on extra tasks above and beyond realtor work was truly impressive. I felt reassured knowing that Iliana had everything under control, allowing me to focus on other aspects of the project to finalize inspections and gain final approval of Certificate of Occupancy. Throughout the sales process, Iliana exhibited remarkable professionalism, excellent communication skills, and a friendly demeanor. She was always available to answer my questions, address site concerns, and provide project updates, making me feel valued and supported every step of the way. I am delighted to say that thanks to Iliana's unwavering dedication and expertise, our property sold quickly and at a competitive market price. I couldn't have asked for a more competent and trustworthy partner with the sale of this property. If you are looking for a real estate professional who will go the extra mile to ensure your property sells seamlessly, look no further than Iliana Abella. Her exceptional talents, commitment to excellence, and personal touch make her a standout in the industry. I wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone in need of real estate services. Thank you, Iliana, for making our real estate journey a smooth and successful one. You are truly the best in the business!

I am a physician from Los Angeles who accepted an amazing career opportunity here in Miami but couldn't decide on renting or purchasing a home. I began my searches on Zillow and was immediately bombarded with listings from agents. I found Iliana via Compass and she immediately impressed with her knowledge of Coral Gables and Pinecrest. She investigated every rental I asked about and it became clear to me that purchasing was my better option. In addition, every agent we spoke with knew of her and spoke glowingly of her. I affectionately refer to Iliana as the Godmother of Coral Gables! Iliana always answered the phone or immediately called me back with my endless questions and need for referrals. She has great connections with bankers, title agencies, contractors, gardeners, etc. The last thing I want to mention is that Iliana is simply a joy to be around. She is quick witted, funny, highly intelligent, responsible and very personable. Iliana made my transition from Los Angeles to Miami a breeze!
