Bernice Maez is the Chief Operating Officer and Co-Founder of VIVO Realty, an innovative, independent residential real estate brokerage established in 2012. VIVO is known for turning its agents into rock stars and giving unparalleled service to buyers and sellers.

But Bernice is no stranger to excellent service and managing successful companies. Before her career in Real Estate, Bernice had a successful career in Information Technology for over 20 years. It was during this time she realized that her real passion is helping people. After some deep thought about how she could fuse her passion for people and Real Estate, she pursued a career as a REALTOR®. The rest is history.

After ten years as a Top Producing agent, Bernice started VIVO Realty with her family, David Maez Sr., CEO, son David Maez Jr. CMO, daughter Brittney, and even her youngest daughter, Suzie. Bernice is confident, about what makes VIVO stand apart from other brokerages and its family values.

But her success didn't happen because of her kind smile (which she does have) alone; she created it through hard work, dedication to her clients, agents, and leading with a servant's heart.

Today, Bernice gets her enjoyment from teaching others -- whether speaking on an education panel or training her agents in her brokerage, she focuses on imparting her expertise to others. She often jokes about being in the Real Estate business until she's 100 years old because of her love for it. Somehow we believe her.
