Jeff Grau – Broker in Charge
With nearly 20 years of experience buying and selling real estate, along with a two decade career in construction, I bring a unique approach and perspective that I am certain you will value, whether you are buying or selling.
My past clients agree that having a builder’s expertise and network of professionals is a real benefit, and one that instills a sense of confidence and calm during what is normally a very chaotic and emotional time. Knowing the questions to ask, understanding the language that is spoken and being able to communicate that information to my clients is not something that all real estate brokers can do well. My network of competent, professional tradespeople, my ability to look at homes and see what they have or what they need, and my ability to get things done quickly are all things that will benefit you immensely whether you are on the buy side or the sell side. Even if you are just looking for land to build on, how nice for you to have a builder who can give you meaningful and honest feedback about the land to help you make a good decision.
I have lived in Chapel Hill for more than 15 years and know this area very well. Before that, New York City. Before that, Atlanta. I did my undergraduate work at Lehigh University where I received a B.S. in Finance and my M.B.A. from Georgia State University. I speak Italian and a little French.
