How it all Began

A few years ago, Alexandra Cash-Garcia came to Luis Garcia and said that her dream was to own a title company. She just didn’t know where or how to get started. During the pandemic, she diligently did her research on how to get started and in March of 2021 she obtained her license. In May of 2021, BAPE Title was created

Founders

El Jefe & La Jefa

Luis Garcia - El Jefe

Co-Founder

Born and raised in Tampa, Luis broke into the real estate market in 1994. After taking a leap of faith and deciding to delve into real estate full time, Luis left corporate America. After working under a broker for a few years, Luis decided it was time yet again to go out on a limb and open his own brokerage.

In 2017, Bay Area Property Exchange was born. In just a few short years, Luis was able to grow the brokerage from 2 agents to now over 20 agents. Small but mighty, BAPE has evolved to become one of Tampa’s premier boutique brokerages. Luis hopes to help BAPE Title grow just as quickly and organically as Bay Area Property Exchange grew.

When not working on ways to expand the brokerage and the title company, you can find Luis spending time with his wife, Madeline, and their 6 children and 5 grandchildren. Thankfully, Luis’s growing family also allows him some time for his fourth love, golf.
