Jose E. Pastora is the visionary force behind RE/MAX Masters as its CEO and Founder. As a broker and business leader in the real estate community for over two decades, Jose has extensive knowledge of the real estate industry and what it takes to make both real estate agents and a mega-brokerage successful.
Jose has twice been named “Broker of the Year” twice by the RE/MAX California and Hawaii Region. This is an accolade that is generally given once in a lifetime. These awards have led to international speaking invitations where Jose engaged thousands of real estate agents world-wide. The Los Angeles Business Journal, RISMedia, and the California Association of REALTORS® Magazine have all recognized Jose and RE/MAX Masters as a top-performing brokerage.
An adventurer and avid traveler, Jose also has built travel and hotel businesses in Latin America, most notably in Nicaragua and Mexico.
Maritza Pastora co-founded RE/MAX Masters with husband, Jose E. Pastora, and assumed the role of CFO. She keeps a careful eye on the company’s financial position in order to maintain security and stability through economic changes and housing market woes. It is because of the company’s financial position that RE/MAX Masters has been able to avoid raising membership fees for the last 15 years, even though the cost of business has increased.
Many agents would say that Maritza plays a much more important role in the company. She is an outgoing motivator and has been referred to as the company “cheerleader”. Maritza’s positive attitude and high-spirits are encouraging to all.
Among her many contributions, she also enjoys designing and decorating the RE/MAX Masters offices, as well as the businesses she and Jose own in Central America.
