Chezi is the preeminent expert in Chicago's Gold Coast and Streeterville markets and he sells more luxury condominiums than any other agent in Chicago. Chezi is the only agent who knows the floor plans and exposures for every luxury building in Chicago from memory.
Chezi's extensive network of clients, both local and international, is unsurpassed. Whether you are buying or selling, you will be in good hands with Chezi as your Realtor because you have hired the most aggressive sales agent in the Gold Coast and Streeterville and you can be assured that your agenda will be accomplished when represented by Chezi Rafaeli.
Chezi believes that in order to service the needs of his clients, he must support them throughout all phases of the selling or buying process. For his sellers, that means making a significant investment of his own money to hire a professional marketing crew of photographers, virtual tour companies, and floor plan designers so that he can create a brochure and direct mail campaigns customized to each sellers' unique needs. The photographs and virtual tour are uploaded to over 14 real estate web sites and used to advertise in 3 local newspapers. Once a property goes under contract, Chezi's staff manages the pre-closing process, working closely with attorneys, to make sure all deadlines are met and documents are collected properly. For buyers, Chezi ensures that his clients acquire a thorough understanding of the marketplace, paying special attention to the value, layout, view and finishes of each property under consideration because this will affect whether or not the property holds its value, loses its value, or gains value over time.
Chezi also believes good negotiating skills are not something that can be learned in a school or seminar; they come from personal experience. Chezi is adept at handling both the mental and emotional steps involved in negotiations and believes nothing can be accomplished without the parties willingness for open negotiations as well as an agent's almost intuitive understanding of their client's needs. In short, experience matters and you won't find another agent with the expertise, negotiating skills, and experience that you will receive from Chezi Rafaeli.
