The condolences are pouring in on Facebook.

Real estate veteran Andrea Greenberg was found dead in her Miami home Tuesday. She was 53, reported The Real Deal.

Her partner Alejandro Aparicio told the website that on Monday night Greenberg had fallen asleep around 10:30 p.m. on the couch watching TV. He was unable to wake her up a little past midnight.

“She was perfectly fine and she just passed away in her sleep,” he said.

A spokesperson for the Miami-Dade Medical Examiner’s Office said an autopsy may be conducted.

Greenberg was well known for a long career in the luxury market at Fortune International Group which she left in 2016 to join Douglas Elliman. About three months later, she decided to branch out her own and start her own consulting firm.

“We are deeply saddened to learn that Andrea Greenberg has passed away,” Fortune president and CEO Edgardo Defortuna said in a statement. “Andrea was an integral part of the Fortune family for more than 16 years and a true industry professional. We all mourn her passing and extend our heartfelt sympathies to her family, friends and colleagues.”

Her friends and colleagues are still trying to process Greenberg’s untimely death.

CBS Miami entertainment reporter Lisa Petrillo wrote a tribute with a picture: “Such a sad day ... woke up to the shocking news that the beautiful, warm, wonderful & friend to so many, Andrea Greenberg... passed away suddenly in the night ... just heartbreaking....”

Publicist Nick D'Annunzio wrote “RIP Andrea Greenberg // will miss you so much - love ❤️ you!! shared so many memories // ups and downs // our moms and just really a great loyal friend.”

Freelance journalist Erin Newberg had this post: “I have no words... I just feel lucky I had the chance to know you for years and we connected in Aspen. The world lost an angel.... My cornichon girl....”

There will be a celebration of Andrea Greenberg's life Sunday, Oct. 15 at 2 p.m. at Temple Beth Sholom at 4144 Chase Avenue in Miami Beach.

The celebration of her life will immediately follow the service at her Miami home, friends say.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to The Andrea Greenberg Project at the Humane Society of Greater Miami.
