Adriano Salucci, Bisnow
Tell me a little about yourself and what you’re doing:
I am a Miami native who has had the opportunity to live and experience other cultures throughout the world over the past 30 years of my life. My mother is from Philadelphia and Father from Napoli. I was fortunate enough growing up around the sport of tennis and played a high level of junior and college tennis. I graduated college in December of 2008, one of the WORST times to enter the workforce in the history of this country, and was able to keep myself busy and working by teaching tennis. After moving to LA in the beginning of 2009, I was trying to identify what I wanted professionally. I am a natural born connector and salesman. I was searching for something I could be a part of and be passionate about. After a few twists and turns, I landed in the real estate industry. I started with a small Owner’s Rep/ Construction Management firm in northern Los Angeles and worked out of that office for 4 years. In 2012, shift happened. I was looking for a change and decided to move back to Miami to capture the “Je ne sais pas” I have been searching for. Moving back to Miami in 2013, a lot had changed, there was an energy, a momentum, a consciousness that had never existed here before. I fell back in love with Miami. I now lead the market for Bisnow Media, the largest news & events platform to the real estate industry in the world!
What do you consider most exciting about Miami?
The entrepreneurial spirit, the cultures, the opportunity to create the NEW Miami.
What is your favorite neighborhood?
Hard to say as so many neighborhoods are on the precipice of something special. Little Haiti, Little River, Calle Ocho. At the moment, North Beach is my favorite. however, I am biased as I am a resident of North Beach.
If you could change one thing in your city, what would it be?
There are many things about this city that i have seen changed, continue to see changing and hope that change in our beautiful city. The number one thing I want to see change is more collaboration, coordination and follow through! I am excited for what is in store…so long as we can stay above water!
