I am Iara Castro, originally from Argentina, but made the move to Orlando at a very young age. I grew up in Altamonte Springs, but presently I reside in Apopka. My favorite thing about living in Apopka is the hospitality within the community; everyone is welcoming, treating no one like a stranger. I obtained my associate degree in Finance, and I plan to pursue my bachelor’s degree in Marketing from the University of Central Florida.

Being no stranger to hospitality and customer service, I learnt the importance and value of patience, kindness, and effectively working well under varying circumstances, which has helped elevate my level of service to where it stands today. While in college, I had the opportunity to work in the marketing department of Advent Health for approximately nine (9) months. I held the title of Member Concierge Specialist, essentially being responsible for appropriately connecting patients with the correct department based on their needs. I was also in charge of promoting programs and events to patients, encouraging their participation, thereby fostering a sense of camaraderie, support, and family for all involved.

One major passion of mine is volunteering, I have volunteered at my local church since the age of ten (10), often doing outreach events. Another passion of mine is photography, and for the past four (4) years, I have been perfecting my skill in this craft. In July of 2020, I started my own photography business that placed an emphasis on taking pictures for housing listings, and I also do freelance photography in my spare time.

My interest in real estate came from seeing the advantages of renting properties, the significance of investing, and being able to incorporate my years of customer service in educating families while helping them find their dream home. After taking the leap in transitioning to the world of real estate, my love for it continues to grow immensely, and I am fortunate to find myself a part of a team that is like-minded, driven and all about client satisfaction: Ben Laube Homes brokered by eXp Realty, LLC.

Outside of my professional life, I enjoy exploring new restaurants and coffee shops, going to church, volunteering, working out, traveling, and spending time with my family. 

Choose me to help find the home that best suits you. Whether you are looking to buy, sell, or rent, let me make this one of the most enjoyable, flawless experiences that you will ever have.
