SARASOTA, FL – Well-known Sarasota restaurateur Rafael Gonzalez has joined Xena Vallone Realty as a Realtor-Associate. In addition to general real estate sales, Gonzalez will enhance the company’s international team, assisting Spanish-speaking buyers and sellers.

Gonzalez is best known locally as a founding partner for 17 years in the J. Ryan’s chain of restaurants, which were sold off in recent years. He was also the former General Manager of Columbia Restaurant and The Patio on St. Armands, where he served for 23 years and earned the Columbia Hall of Fame Award. He later owned Miramar Restaurant in the Sarasota Quay.

After retiring from the restaurant business, Gonzalez sought a profession that would enable him to put his lifelong customer service experience to use. “Real estate was a natural fit,” he said. “I chose Xena Vallone Realty because the company has a great reputation and an excellent training program.”

Born and raised in Cuba, Gonzalez moved to the United States in the 1960s with his family.

“We are proud to welcome Rafael to Xena Vallone Realty,” said Broker-Owner Xena Vallone. “In addition to his history and contacts in the Sarasota area, he will be a valuable addition to our team. Rafael has a charming and caring personality that warms your heart and I know he will make a great Realtor.”
