The Founders

Bruno Fernandez photo

Bruno Fernandez, the Founder/Broker of Imagine Realty, was born and raised in Lugo, Spain! Upon graduating from Law School, he moved to the United States in 1996 and has taken the world by storm ever since.

His work experience ranges widely from teaching, to becoming an assistant principal and dean, to banking, to creating non-profit organizations, to where he truly found his life work’s passion: real estate. Bruno formally earned his US Citizenship in 2008, and he created his first real estate investment company shortly after. It is here that he discovered his love for helping families purchase the homes that he had poured his blood, sweat, and tears into creating for them. He knew from then on that real estate was his passion and his calling.

The name “Imagine” to Bruno represents all of the amazing possibilities and doors that were opened for him upon moving to the United States. He always imagined a life where anything was possible, regardless of one’s background, education, ethnicity, social status- none of it matters here in the Land of Opportunity, and he will never stop carrying out his passion through the motivation he and his wife have ignited inside themselves together with their creation of Imagine Realty in 2019.

Katie Fernandez photo

Katie Fernandez, the Founder/Broker of Imagine Realty, was born and raised in Lakeland, Florida, but always spent more time with her friends and family in Tampa and St. Petersburg, so she really has three hometowns!

After graduating from Florida State University in 2013, she moved to Chicago, Illinois and left her mark on the Windy City for two years. After realizing that she was too far away from her family and the beautiful sunshine, Katie moved back to St. Petersburg and taught high school math for three years. It was actually at this school that she and Bruno met! After their wedding in February 2018, she retired from the classroom to become a full-time Realtor (now Broker), and has never looked back since.

Katie and Bruno knew upon meeting each other that they had to use their go-getter, lighthearted spirits and excellent communication skills to help people together. Katie jumped on board with Bruno’s real estate investment company in 2016, and fell in love with the industry from there. She believes that they are an amazing team, and that they work incredibly hard to communicate their ideas and goals with each other.  In 2019, when Bruno mentioned wanting to start a brokerage, there was no question in either of their minds that it was going to happen, and he always had his wife’s support every step of the way.

The name “Imagine” to Katie represents not only carrying on the legacy of care, kindness, and inclusion instilled within her by her grandmother, but also letting her imagination run wild with Bruno in their life, their love, and this wonderful, trustworthy company that they have created together from scratch.

Crystal Williams (Palm Harbor/Belleair/Tampa Bay)

~Experience~

Crystal has been trained by some of the best in the nation like Gene Rivers from Florida and Marc King from St. Louis, MO. They have trained her to be the top in communication, customer service, and negotiation~ she has even trained with Chris Voss, a former top FBI hostage negotiator to perfect her negotiation skills!  Her first year in the industry, she was an active part of 70+ closed properties. The most productive quarter she has ever had was with 47 simultaneously pending properties! She has also worked directly with David Jones, the CEO of Southern AZ and Coach for Mega Agents, and Rob Daniel, the Productivity Coach for Orlando, FL Agents. She worked on a successful high-producing team, grew exponentially, and is now working as an individual. She has always enjoyed growing and improving in her career!  

~Expertise~

Crystal found her niche in Luxury and Investment Real Estate. Naturally, we know first time homebuyers go hand-in-hand with investment-type-properties, due to the nature of the homes, and she really enjoys working with first time buyers/investors. She has been licensed in Florida since 2017, and before that she was a successful agent in Missouri. Crystal was born in LA, grew up in San Diego, and spent 10 of her college and early adulthood years in Southern Missouri. She has moved across the country herself, making her an expert in relocation. She also has a brother who is an investor, and is close friends with other investors in commercial businesses like Andy’s Frozen Custard, a local gymnastics & cheer gym, and numerous rental properties. To sum this up, if you are looking to buy, sell, or invest in Real Estate, Crystal will be of great help to you.

~Communication~

Initially, there is a strategy planning session in person or online, allowing everyone to best understand how, when, and what to communicate. This session is vital and most Agents don’t take the time to listen and understand each situation to the level that Crystal does. This session sets expectations for both clients and for Crystal, and allows our future conversations to be more productive.

~Awards/Recognition~

Crystal has previously been recognized as one of the top ISA (Real Estate Marketing) directors. She was also voted and elected as the lead of a team of eight Realtors in a local project based on her skills. Crystal is licensed in both Florida and Missouri, making her well-rounded on relocation. She also graduated multiple extensive extracurricular trainings for marketing and negotiation. The majority of Agents work only part time, but Crystal has dedicated her career to be a full time agent since she was only 21 years old!

~Personal~

Crystal supports the charities Mercy Ministries, CRU, and Gary Keesee. Back in the day, she coached gymnastics because of her love for the sport. She used to model as a hobby, and signed with Richie Walls Entertainment, but doesn’t have time for it these days! She loves to travel a few times every year to the West Coast, desert, or mountains. She and her husband have been together since 2010, and have two beautiful daughters who enjoy dancing and spending time with their friends.

~Commitment~

Her commitment to you as a business partner is to consistently keep you updated and informed to make this experience as seamless as possible. Crystal makes the processes of buying/selling/investing about you and your needs, and she does all of this in hopes that you will tell people how glad you were that you partnered up with her to take you through this home buying/selling/investing journey together. Communication and consistent updates prevent emotional roller coasters by being PROactive to situations vs the typical REactive behavior of most Agents.

If you have any questions, or need any recommendations for contractors, architects, repairmen, etc… reach out to Crystal~ she is always happy to put in a good word for other trustworthy people in the industry!

Damir Mujkic (St Pete/Tampa Bay)

I have over $20 million in sales (and counting!), and numerous satisfied clients. I never settle for less than complete satisfaction.

I have built my successful business by focusing on my clients. The key principal that I run my business on is valuing relationships over transactions. Buying, selling, and investing in real estate is an exciting and complex adventure. It can also be a very time-consuming and costly one if you’re not familiar with all aspects of the process, and if you do not have the best information and resources at hand. I pride myself on educating and empowering my clients to fulfill their dreams. I help my clients balance the qualitive and quantitative choices to obtain the best possible outcome.  I know that homeownership is the result of hard work and sacrifice. To be part of the process is a privilege and I do not take that responsibility lightly.

I bring the knowledge, experience, and connections that have come from involvement in many real estate transactions. My comprehensive, high-quality services can save you time and money, as well as make the experience more enjoyable and less stressful.

After graduating from Virginia Tech with a B.S. in Finance, I spent the first four years of my career providing consulting services (at Deloitte and Protiviti) to the real estate industry, Fortune 500 companies, and federal agencies. Subsequently, I worked for Freddie Mac in a senior position, so I have truly worked within the full spectrum of the real estate industry. This past experience has been invaluable in seeing the larger picture. These experiences have led to a highly data-driven approach – tracking the heartbeat of the local market and understanding the implications of the macro environment.

Providing my clients with comprehensive high-quality service is my top priority. So when you decide to buy, sell, and/or invest please contact me and let’s get started!

Please don’t hesitate to reach out. I love talking real estate – there is no commitment and no pressure.

Bella Guillen (Miami/South FL)

Bella is an immigrant who was born in Dominican Republic and raised in Brooklyn, New York in Sunset Park- a neighborhood that was so named because of the elevation of the park and its views of the sunset and the Manhattan skyscrapers. The row houses of brownstones and the different backgrounds of the community inspired her interest in Real Estate! Her parents owned their business where, during her childhood, she learned to pay attention to details and to treat each customer with integrity. 

 
Her professional journey in Real Estate started 15 years ago when she accepted a part-time position in a brokerage firm for one year while she simultaneously served in the Pharmaceutical industry AND completed her Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration/Sales! She has worked with some of the largest Pharmacy Benefit Managers, hospitals, first responders, specialties, retailers, and independent pharmacies nationwide. Being a risk-taker, Bella moved to Miami in 2017. She was focusing in Pharmaceutical Sales, and managed the territory of Miami, eventually expanding her reach throughout Key West, Naples, and Fort Myers. She earned a strong referral base due to her dedication, communication, and professionalism. Her sales expertise, negotiation skills, knowledge, persistence, empathy, transparency, and strong work ethic are incredibly valuable assets that she carries throughout her client dealings. She believes that appreciation is the key to any relationship, and she treats her customers with integrity and respect in every transaction. She takes pride in saying that she has earned her strong ethics from both of her immigrant parents!
 
During her free time, Bella is volunteering and helping those in need, training outdoors, doing Pilates, or reading. She loves to travel with family and explore the city of Miami, where she has further developed her passion for Real Estate.

Leslie Waldburg (Jacksonville)

I have been a resident of Jacksonville, Florida for over 40 years. I have traveled the state and am knowledgeable with all of the surrounding areas. My love for Real Estate began in November of 1996 when I purchased my first home. Since then, I have wanted each and every person to feel that warm and inviting feeling when they imagine themselves in that special place of their own, the place they can call home.

Throughout the years, I have worked in many areas of public relations. Whether pastoring, visiting with my patients in the hospital, or whatever the circumstances may be, at the end of the day the final conversation ends with “I just want to go home.” 

Since that day, I made a decision to help as many people as I can to achieve home ownership. Whether it is your first home or your dream home, I want to be the Realtor that leads you home. So I ask you to “Let Leslie Lead you home.”
