1.He’s not afraid to walk away from it all

At the pinnacle of his success, Ortiz made the shocking decision to walk away from Bravo’s Million Dollar Listing: New York and his thriving real estate business.

Why did he do it?

The 29-year-old tells The Daily Dish that he “chose happiness.” But it wasn’t, by any means, an easy choice. The Puerto Rican heartthrob recalls how much he struggled: “It was a hard decision to make because then you say you have built a career that is allowing you to do so well or you’re doing so well, but yet doesn’t make you happy — so the decision has to be which one do I choose?”

2. He started from the bottom

This wouldn’t be the first time that the brazen reality star took a life changing plunge. At the age of 16 in Puerto Rico, he and his twin brother told their parents that they were going to the beach. While that was partially true, the brothers failed to mention that the beach would be in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Yup, the dynamic duo boarded a flight to Florida and nearly gave their parents heart attacks. In the Sunshine State, Ortiz sold lollipops and worked as a janitor to survive.

But his heart will always belong to la isla del encanto. The successful real estate broker opened up to Fox News Latino about why he chose to leave Puerto Rico: “I get anxious when I’m in an environment that’s not bringing anything new,” the reality star confessed. “Life is very short. I need to be stimulated. I love Puerto Rico, it’s my heart and my family. But I had aspirations and wanted to find out,” Ortiz says.

3. He’s a philosopher

But that doesn’t mean that he never does any introspection. There’s more to this Latino star than his charm and bubbly personality. He’s an extremely deep thinker, too. The successful real estate broker gave Fox News Latino a piece of his philosophy: “My philosophy is to never aim for money,” explains Ortiz. “Money distracts and makes goals shift. When you don’t aim for money, you don’t fall apart over deals that fall through. If you’re passionate, positive, and do your job great, the money will come.” In an interview with Gary Vaynerchuck (“Vee”), the reality star adds, “When I get drunk, I get very philosophical.” But we’re just going to have to take his word on that.

4. He’s not lucky when it comes to love

Despite his deep intellect, the dashing reality star hasn’t been lucky in love. Yes, ladies, he’s single! He’s actually been single over five years. So what exactly is this New York bachelor looking for? In an interview with Watch What Happens: Live’s Andy Cohen, Ortiz says that future Mrs. Ortiz “doesn’t want to change my essence. [She] respect[s] the fact that I’m happy for life.” He adds that he wants someone whom he can admire; someone who can can tell him inspiring stories because he doesn’t want to be the only one talking. Take notes, ladies.

P.S. He’s a Scorpio.

5. He has a shallow side, too

The Bravo star must have women falling at his feet. And he knows it. His boyish good looks, polished suit, blue eyes, pearly whites and perfect smile can make any woman swoon. But his favorite feature on himself has to be his signature hairdo.

You can’t just wake up his hair. It’s a process. He even has a Luis. D. Ortiz hairstyle guide on Bravo. You’ll need: shampoo, conditioner, a thin brush, a hair dryer, hair spray and a steady hand. The dashing star recommends not having any inanimate objects nearby because you might be tempted to break them trying to tame those tresses. But it’ll be worth it. As he once tweeted: “99 problems; but my hair ain’t one.”

For Mother’s Day, he took to Instagram to share his love: “The love for life, I get it from you. The desire to become a better person, I get it from you. You are a stellar human being with the humble heart of something much more valuable than gold. You encompass everything I look forward to in a woman. You’re incredible. You are perfect!”
