TOP REAL ESTATE AGENT IN ILLINOIS RAY MORANDI
Ray Morandi got started in the real estate industry helping his dad with several of his investment properties. He quickly realized he had a passion for the business, and things evolved from there. He eventually moved over to residential sales, and 14 years later, he couldn’t be more thrilled with where’s he’s at with his business.
Ray is currently the Managing Broker of Morandi Properties Inc, and primarily serves the Southwest suburbs of Chicago. By operating his business with the utmost integrity and providing an exceptional customer service, Ray has built a solid reputation that has earned him an impressive rate of repeat and referral business. “I’m really proud of my referral business. When people trust you enough to recommend you to their friends and family, you know you’re doing something right. Because I instantly start off earning a high level of trust, it makes things go smoother from the get go.”
Key to Ray’s success is the strong work ethic that was instilled in him by his father from the start. “People come to me a lot of times having had a bad experience with a previous Realtor®. My goal is to always turn that impression around. Good service for me starts by providing clean, open and honest communication throughout the process. I think my clients sense that I am sincere about doing what’s best for them, and that makes them really comfortable throughout the transaction. I make myself available to them 24/7. If they want to see a property, I get them in right away. Timing is everything in this business. This is my full time job and I take it seriously. My goal is to get my clients the best deal possible, while making the process seamless.”
Another area in which Ray goes above and beyond is with the marketing of his listings. “I’m really big on technology and am always looking for the most innovative ways to present my listings and get them the best exposure. I do a lot of video marketing, drone photography and 3D walkthroughs, and every listing, no matter the price, gets professional photographs. We put in a lot of effort and time to make sure they are presented in the best possible light. Once we get the home show ready, I work with a media company to help drive up activity, creating shorter market times and higher prices.”
Ray couldn’t be more excited for the future of his business, and looks forward to continuing to perfect the level of service he offers his clients. “The next thing I’m excited about is expanding our use of video by creating video client reviews. I feel like there’s something even more engaging if you get to see past clients talk about the experience they had working with me. For me it’s all about helping people achieve their real estate dreams, whether that’s buying their first home or building an investment portfolio. I don’t see myself as being a salesperson. I never look to just “sell” my clients a home, I look to be an advocate for their best interest, fighting along with them in their corner.”
Ray gets his own motivation from his wife and 2 boys. “I want what’s best for my own family, so I work hard to give others what’s best for theirs. I’m here to guide people through what is often the biggest purchase of their lifetime. Earning their trust and seeing their gratitude at the end of it all, is very rewarding. I couldn’t imagine doing anything else.”
