For the executive

Long before “lean in” became a catchphrase of the women’s movement, Mayi de la Vega had smashed the glass ceiling in South Florida real estate as the founder and owner of ONE Sotheby’s International Realty. Her hard work ethic and cultural collaborations such as ONE CIFO Project with the Cisneros Fontanals Art Foundation is why she brokers big deals like the exclusive sales and marketing contract for Zaha Hadid’s 1000 Museum residential tower. Wanting to share the wealth, she launched ONE on One, a program for agents to donate a portion of commissions and homeowners to donate goods, among other initiatives, to benefit Lotus House nonprofit for homeless women and children. Since business and gifts go hand in hand, here are her ideas for the professionals in your life.
