Luis D. Ortiz is a licensed real estate salesperson, formerly working for Douglas Elliman.

Ortiz co-starred as the third participant in the second season of the Bravo reality television series Million Dollar Listing New York, alongside Fredrik Eklund and Ryan Serhant who remained from the prior season, and has continued with Eklund and Serhant to subsequent seasons.

Ortiz was born in Guaynabo, Puerto Rico. He grew up in Guaynabo with his mother, father, and twin brother Daniel.[6] He and his twin brother left Puerto Rico when they were 16 years old. Ortiz said they were too young to understand why they wanted to leave but they were feeling uncomfortable and suffocated by something. Ortiz and his brother headed to Florida and left a note to his parents saying, "If I don’t do this, how do I know if it’s going to work or not?" Ortiz said he didn't speak to his mother for the first six or seven months he and his twin were in the U.S. and his mother wanted to "kill" them.

In 2006, Ortiz moved to New York City to study film direction at the New York Film Academy where he completed the Director’s Program.Upon moving to New York, Ortiz lived in a Jewish community. At the age of 19, he directed and produced Amália, his first film, which won Best Direction in the Puerto Rico Film Festival in 2007. He came back to New York in 2008 to make a second film. Ortiz sought $15,000 from New York restaurants to fund another film and in one night, raised $9,000. The movie was titled The Theater of the Absurd, but he did not like it so he decided not to show it.

Ortiz started began his career in real estate selling rentals. Ortiz spoke of "bait and switch" practices, saying, "we had the bait and switch. Everyone had it but I was always very honest with people when they called me. I needed to feed myself. Had [the listings] been legitimate, I would probably never have gotten any calls."

Ortiz has worked at some of New York’s most successful boutique brokerages, such as Synergy and Prodigy Network, where he had the opportunity to represent some aspiring developments downtown, such as Cipriani Residences, The Setai, and The District.

Ortiz was let go by his real estate firm Keller Williams Realty which stated, "at no fault of Luis", because they said reality TV (Million Dollar Listing New York) was not in line with the Keller Williams’ NYC brand. Before joining New York’s largest residential real estate brokerage firm, Douglas Elliman, Ortiz was a vice president of Keller Williams NYC.

On August 7, 2013, Douglas Elliman announced that Ortiz joined the firm which also employs his Million Dollar Listing New York reality television co-star, Fredrik Eklund. At Douglas Elliman, he started his own real estate group - Ortiz & Co.

To date, Ortiz has sold several hundred million dollars’ worth of residential real estate.

In the season finale of Season 5 of Million Dollar Listing New York, Ortiz announced he is stepping away from real estate to pursue something else entirely.
