Azareel Herrera


I was born 1974 in Monterrey, Mexico surrounded by a loving and caring family. Years later, I graduated from college in 1996 and earned a bachelor’s Degree in Industrial Engineering with minor in Systems. Shortly after, I worked as the Director of Operations with my father and brother in our manufacturing business for a couple of years. In 1998, I joined a consulting firm and gladly traveled to different countries developing and implementing business intelligence projects under the concept of multidimensional management in the areas of marketing, sales, customer service, purchasing, financing, and human resources. In 2007, I became a bilingual-elementary school teacher in Dallas with the goal of having a positive impact on the lives of my students and earning their love and trust as a reward. Around the same time, I started to invest in real estate and later applied for my general contractor’s license and created my own company. I have been doing home renovations and all kinds of real estate transactions and working with investors over the years. In 2017, I did some upgrades to a well-maintained fixer upper in Alachua and moved here with my wife, our 2 kids, 2 dogs, and a bunch of plants from our previous home garden. We are so grateful for this change! I decided to join Pepine Realty because of the high level of integrity reflected in their commitment to providing excellent service. They love and joyfully serve this community, paying unique attention to its economic growth, cultural diversity, demographics and market trends, while having lots of fun too. My focus area is Commercial Real Estate and I also specialize in Business Consulting and Investments. Please allow me the opportunity to serve you by simply setting up a quick meeting, at a time that works best for you.
