Miriam Almanzar

Sales & Rentals Agent


Relocated to New York City from the Dominican Republic, grew up in the heart of Manhattan, influenced by the ever-changing and fast-paced city, the desire to grow with each change ran through my veins.

Studied Business Administration at Baruch College, thinking that it was my calling; but life always took me to a place where I was surrounded by creative people: Harry N. Abrams Art Book Publishers, Vignelli Associates Graphic Designs Studio, Personal Assistant to the distinguished Lella Vignelli, Office Manager at Designframe, the designer of the TimeFrame Calendar, now in the permanent collection of The MoMA in New York City; Showroom Manager for Haviland Limoges, Comptroller at Pei Partnership Architects, known internationally for their high quality design. PPA was founded in 1992 by the sons of renowned Chinese-American Architect, I.M. Pei.  

 Destiny landed me in Barcelona, Spain.

 As an Independent Consultant, the last fifteen years of experience has brought me an incredible list of contacts, including manufacturers, artists, artisans, realtors, decorators, and architects. This gives me the ability to provide a broad selection of furniture, accessories, textile and lighting options to choose from, or help locate that specific piece you've been dreaming of.  My specialty in styling interiors for photography has brought me expertise in how to maximize spaces and make them look better. 

Miriam would not only help to find your dream home but also help you in everything what is related to your new property such as renovation, architect, interior design, furniture & administration issues.
