Manuel Napoles-Ramirez is a native of Los Angeles and graduate from the University of Southern California with a degree in Business Administration and a minor in Economics. Manuel obtained his Real Estate License during his freshman year in college and gained experience working in Real Estate Finance throughout his college career. By reviewing multiple real world case studies at USC, Manuel built a solid understanding of trend changes, current challenges, and demand dynamics within the real estate spectrum.

Manuel’s drive and ambition lead him to become the first person in his family to graduate college. The importance of hard work, integrity, positive energy, and creativity was instilled by witnessing his parents start a clothing recycling company from scratch with limited resources. In addition, Manuel had an internship during his junior year at USC working on a foreign exchange trading floor for Monex based in Mexico City. Originally Manuel was focused on working for a Global Macro Hedge fund, but pivoted to real estate when he realized real estate suited his personality better compared to working for a hedge fund.

His interests outside of Real Estate include trading global financial markets, football, fitness, and poker.
