STOP LOOKING.START FINDING.
The Gramata Group (Team Gramata)
In 2009, I formed The Gramata Group (formerly the Gramata Realty Group) and partnered with Chicago's largest independent brokerage firm, @properties. Each year our annual sales volume and revenue growth has climbed from $6,000,000 in 2008 to over $20,000,000 in annual sales every year since then averaging over 70 real estate transactions per year. However, it is not all about closed sales volume contrary to what many brokers say. While closed sales do represent experience it is also about providing superior service and customer satisfaction and I believe that is where The Gramata Group stands apart from the crowd. We are dedicated to providing superior experiences that are crafted to meet your specific goals. Each client goal is different and requires a unique customized marketing plan as I've outline in our mission statement:
"My mission is to know value, find opportunities, & make superior deals for each of my clients. To successfully apply my wide range of sales, marketing, design, construction and management skills for each of my clients"
I take pride in providing the highest level of customer service and satisfaction for each of my clients.

"Jim's background as an architect and builder was very helpful when we were looking for our home. He could identify potential issues with the house that most realtors would not be able to point out. He has an understanding that is way beyond what someone would learn from just earning his or hers real estate license. This made us feel very comfortable when making our decisions. He was very pleasant to work with. He treated us, our buyer prospects, and other owners and agents with professionalism and integrity. I would definitely recommend Jim to my friends and family." ~ Tora & Curtis R.

Our condo sold in 3 days and Jim talked us through every part of the process. We couldn't have asked for better service! Pricing, staging marketing. He showed us the path his experience gave him that would meet our goals and get our home sold. I would recommend him highly to anyone!" ~ Kearin & Keith P.
