we also go far beyond providing our clients with proformas, estimates and projections. When we founded The SAVI Group, we saw the need for something revolutionary, something innovative, to meet your needs. We realized that clients like you have expectations greater than anyone else in the market could meet. So we did away with projections. We did away with rough estimates of profits, costs and time. We feel that if we can’t be more exact than that, we don’t deserve to be in business. For this reason, we don’t provide projections but rather define exactly what it will take to do the job the right way — how much it will cost and how long it will last — and then give you a written promise that we will deliver just that.
On budget, on time, with the right profit and with precisely the quality you would expect from the best asset manager in the country — or we don’t charge you for our services.
You may be wondering by now how we can deliver on such a promise. Like most revolutionary ideas, it’ s actually quite simple: We discovered that exactness in our business can be achieved by refusing to do work that can’t be controlled. We realized that our business is not about assets, materials and timelines, but about interacting with other people. And at the center of that interaction, it is you, our client, whose needs must be fulfilled. Your ideas, your thoughts, your concepts and, finally, your life story are our guidelines to making your dreams a reality. Our asset management, brokerage and construction management practices are the most reliable and dependable in the industry , allowing us to be ahead of the curve while proactively heading off headaches before they occur . And in the end, at The SAVI Group, we understand that only by keeping our promises while being cost effective and ensuring the delivery of the best value for your money do we deserve your business.

tessi garcia With more than 25 years in the design industry
, T essi Garcia
has proven to be a pioneering force in architectural interiors, audiovisual, lighting design, and construction management. Her name is associated with some of the most defining structures that illuminate the skyline of Florida’ s most magical city , including Miami’ s famed Freedom Tower, The Jade Residences at Brickell Bay
, and South
Pointe Towers. The Cuban-born artist and creative designer , Tessi Garcia, draws inspiration from her rich, multicultural background. A childhood spent in both Cuba and
America armed her with an
acute eye for design and an innate ability to project her clients’ inner soul onto the physical spaces of each design plan. Having worked with some of the most prominent names international development, including The Related Group, Skyline, and Swire Properties, Garcia remains one of the premier designers in the U.S., the Caribbean, Latin America, and Europe. Garcia made a mark on the city of Miami in 1988 with the commission for the multimillion-dollar design project at South Pointe Towers. Garcia was also one of the original innovators of the “Light Up Miami” project where she introduced a custom-designed light sculpture for the top of the building, creating a “lighthouse” for the southernmost tip of Miami Beach.
34 | exclusive miami
The Illuminating Engineer Society awarded Garcia’ s firm for its lighting work on this project. She earned more national attention in 1989 when she was chosen to restore the historic F reedom Tower, to its former elegance. While a traditionalist at heart, her creations have predominantly been manifested with a unique “state-of-the-art” appeal. A passion for contemporary, functional design with a touch of fantasy drives her imagination, without compromising the warmth of the interiors she creates. Her innate ability to maintain privatized confidentiality throughout the project phase and beyond has enabled her firm to garner a roster of clients that includes prestigious artists and athletes, and her work continues to be enriched despite a redefined economy. In an era that demands tangible results, Garcia’s passion translates into a mission of service for quality of life enhancement. Her designs create both serene and passionate non-conforming spaces that breathe love and communication to the soul.

Ramon Pacheco “N ot only am i an architect, but i ha ve a p assion for art.” “As an artist, my designs are an expression of my love of art.” Ramon Pacheco, “The Architect to the Stars” said from his office in Miami. Creating architectural works of art with a high regard for function, aesthetics, and the surrounding elements is the design philosophy of Ramon Pacheco & Associates. The Miami based firm, established in 1986, specializes in the design of high end residential projects throughout the United States, South and Central
has a larger than life client list that includes Michael Caine, Latin musician Gloria Estefan, Cristina Saralegui also known as the “Oprah of Latin America” and Mario Kreutzberger known as Don Francisco of Sabado Gigante. Key influences in his works include his many travels, as well as his love of nature. During his studies and early career
Ramon Pacheco was greatly influenced by the works of Le Corbusier and Frank Lloyd Wright. Later, in his journeys throughout Europe, he became fascinated with the rigorous quality of classical architecture especially the works of Andrea Palladio and Karl Friedrich Schinkel.

This elegant fusion of past
is the theme of some of his works today
With over 500 homes under his belt in the Southern Florida region, he strives to be the best in the industry which is why he tells his daughters, who are also in the family architectural business, bad things spread in a second -- good things take a long time. The firmâ€™s success is due to his dedication to client satisfaction. â€œThe most satisfying part is seeing my clients enjoying the spaces we design for them. The majority of my business comes via referral or repeat clients and I believe this says a lot about my dedication to quality and satisfaction.â€?
