Real Estate Consultant
After graduating with Magna Cum Laude Honors from the University of Maryland, Dina Goldentayer re-located to Miami Beach to take part in the booming Real Estate marketplace. She was a natural at spotting deals and matching buyers to properties both in Residential and Commercial transactions, and she began mastering the art of the distressed opportunity before most agents knew what a Short Sale was.
She quickly rose to the top ranks of sales production in every real estate setting she ventured into - from preconstruction sales of a South Beach condo conversion to record breaking price per square foot sales of Venetian Island homes.
What's more impressive than her stats is Dina's unwaivering devotion to her clientele. She is always available and responsive, and her follow up skills are unparalleled. The fact that the majority of her business has become referral-based is the ultimate testament to her success.
While South Beach is where her home, office, and primary center of business is, Dina is also quite active in Sunny Isles Beach. She's utilized her Russian background and language skills to be heavily involved in luxury oceanfront condo sales of this booming neighborhood.
Although often accused of being a workaholic, Dina makes time for her passion to travel the world, as well as contribute to charities including the Wellness Community, Make-A-Wish Foundation, Lea Black Organization, and Miami Rescue Mission.

Dhruba and Cheri Gupta, Purchasers of multiple South Beach Condos
"We concluded on three Condo Purchases and Rentals on two of these Condos thereafter with Dina and her teammates in the Miami Beach Area in the last few months. We consider that we were very very lucky to have had their help in all of these transactions. Dina is just an outstanding Realtor and she and her teammates, Sladja and Cara, provide extraordinary professional services on all fronts with amazing grace, care and diligence, often beyond normal expectations. We have also always felt totally secure in all their actions and advice. All in all, they form the Most Wonderful Team of Real Estate Agents that we have ever dealt with in over 35 years of transactions in real estate in the United States."
Dr. Raul Weiss, Purchaser of vacation home in Aventura
"When we decided to get a house in Florida while living in Ohio I did not know where to start. One of my neighbors recommended Dina Goldentayer and was one of my best phone calls. She is pleasant, professional, extremely savvy and well connected. I do not think I could have bought the property I got without all of her help (from showing me houses to connecting me with banks). Two years later I find myself contacting her for any real state issues I may have. I would recommend her without hesitation to anyone who is serious about getting a property and want to get the most out of the money they spend."
Alvaro Psevoznik, Disart Media President
“I've known Sladja for 8 years and saw her growing in the Real Estate industry and re-inventing herself especially in the though times, when only the good ones survived. She's a professional, and you don't find one easily. She's able to market a high end property like no other and can make both sellers and buyers confident that they are being taken care of by someone who knows the business, knows what's the best for each party and will not stop until the deal is closed and everybody's happy. Yes, there are thousands of Realtors in the market, only a few ones know the facts about the industry, the market and has the vision that Sladja have; and that's what makes her unique.” December 7, 2010
