I created the Investment Workshops in an attempt to meet my neighbors online (and then hopefully in person) in the Chicago communities where I purchase my investment properties. Your property is within the boundaries of my limited search area.
I am currently a buy and hold investor (different from my past business model where I used to buy and flip). First of all I want it to be clear while I do have a real estate broker license you have my word you are not under any obligation to work with me in order to learn from my workshops.
Why would I do this?
A few basic reasons. First, I have a teachers heart. My father taught his whole life and I enjoy sharing my experiences and wisdom. I also want to meet like-minded people with a drive to success. I want to meet people who want to invest in real estate and be available to offer my real estate services if there is a match but not as an obligation. I have a team of residential real estate brokers too who can assist you in meeting your real estate investment goals. This is my job. To assist people in finding and closing on real estate - both off market and on market. This service will lead me to be able to invest my income back into my own investment goals and helps me achieve my goals.
A bit more about my business background:
In 1991, I founded The Gramata Design & Construction Co., a residential contracting company specializing in small scale client rehabs including additions, kitchens & baths and whole house gut renovations and restoration.
In 1999, I incorporated and renamed the company, The Gramata Development Corporation, a neighborhood residential construction company dedicated to delivering to the public innovative and unique architectural designs and high-quality, dependably built homes.
In 2009, I founded The Gramata Realty Group, a residential sales & marketing business. I partnered with Chicago’s largest independent brokerage firm, @properties. Please do not be scared off by me being a broker. I am not doing all this to try and get a listing. I am interested in real estate for myself as I've stated and you home may be a good match.
Jim Gramata is a licensed real estate broker in Illinois. I am obligated to reveal my license with the state on each real estate transaction I am involved in.
