About Me




A lifelong resident of Chicago, Jeff Graves applies his deep knowledge of the city to specialize in residential properties: single family homes, condominiums, townhouses; both new construction and vintage/rehabs in Chicago's North side neighborhoods.  A stickler for details, Jeff works closely with each of his clients to carefully understand their needs and develop an effective strategy to accomplish their goals.  Both buyers and sellers appreciate Jeff's knowledgeable and compassionate focus.  Jeff is proud to have accepted the Chicago Association of Realtors award as a Top Producing Realtor in the Lincoln Square and Bowmanville neighborhoods with over 100 million dollars in career sales.


Experience that counts


Jeff brings broad corporate experience and an unmatched client service style to his Real Estate career.  His analytical skills were honed when he was a Director at a major marketing research firm.  Jeff's creative abilities were indulged by heading the stage/set design and construction for a professional non-equity theater.  Jeff, along with his partner, acted as the designers and general contractors for the gut rehab of their own vintage home.  Jeff thoroughly understands how this complicated process can be done well and has quite the eye for ˜diamonds in the rough' for all of his Do-It-Yourself clients.  As the former president of two condominium associations, Jeff intimately understands the challenges and rewards of condo management.  Jeff's leadership, analytical, and creative abilities are the perfect foundation for his highly successful client service approach to the practice of real estate.


Dedicated to making a difference


Building strong communities has always been Jeff's passion.  He has been on the board of the Bowmanville Community Organization since 2004.  He is also on the board of the Griffin Theatre and contributed to the theater's acquisition of an abandoned city building in the Bowmanville neighborhood which will be converted into a community art center and the permanent home for The Griffin.   Strong neighborhoods are built with determination and vision; two qualities Jeff brings to every client transaction.


Committed to the client


Knowing that buying and selling a home is serious business; Jeff's goal is to make the process pleasurable and exciting for his clients by providing outstanding service they can trust, professional expertise, and quality insight resulting in a successful transaction and satisfied clients.  Know someone who is thinking of buying or selling a home?  You can refer Jeff Graves with confidence!
