Founder & CEO

Raquel Perez 

Born in Havana ,Cuba and moved to America with her family looking for a better future at the age of 9. Her parents got divorced by the time she was 11 and she started working with her mom. This taught Raquel to be responsible and hard working at an early age. With 6 years of sales experience at age 24 she decided to get into the Real Estate business. Went to school to get licensed and started working as a Realtor in Miami Beach. Raquel worked at Real Estate firm for over a year. After seeing that no matter how hard she worked, she wasn’t going to be able to grow in the company, Raquel decided to change her career and work towards her dreams, not someone else’s. The Direct Sales & Business Consulting Industry aligned more towards her goals, so she made a career change that gave the opportunity to relocate to the Washington, DC area where she opened up Legacy.
