A native of Southern California, Raphael studied urban planning at UCLA before making the jump to NYU's Tisch School of the Arts. On a daily basis, he's awed by the beauty and variety of the architecture in New York, and is particularly excited by the forgotten gems north of 110th street that are rapidly being rediscovered and renewed by a crop of motivated and conscientious owners.
Having been through it many times himself, Raphael knows that finding a place to live is always one of the most personal, exciting, and potentially frustrating experiences someone can go through. It doesn't matter if it's a $1200 studio rental or a $3 million brownstone if you're in the thick of it, it's a big deal. Raphael uses his knowledge of the market, his long history of customer service, and his vast store of personal experience to advocate for his clients and make the process as fun, simple, and advantageous as it can be in a madhouse like NYC.
If you're looking to buy, sell, rent, or even if you just have a question about real estate, Raphael's always ready and willing call or email anytime!
