Lazar Ilic is a senior sales agent and principle of Spire’s corporate relocation subsidiary, CRG. Lazar's extraordinary real estate career is a master class in perseverance – beginning in Serbia and culminating with his own successful enterprise. 

Trained at the famed Strategic Marketing Research Institute in Serbia, Lazar had already consulted for Fortune 500 companies and political leaders by his 21st birthday. Yet it wasn’t until his decade-long quest to immigrate to New York City, including weighty legal and financial setbacks, that Lazar truly showed what he was made of.

With merely $500 and a dream, Lazar grabbed his golden Visa to New York and built an international network of top knowledge brokers, owners, and investors – even United Nations insiders – netting 'Page Six' worthy deals, a record 1,000 closings in 7 years, and a near flawless client retention rate.

“Since founding CRG our core philosophy has been grounded in the belief that our clients' needs are of paramount importance and our sole business is managing our clients' assets on their behalf. My clients count on me for no-nonsense leadership," explains Lazar. "It is my business to deliver smart, seamless solutions that enrich their lives."

With an improbable journey and an unflagging track record, it seems there is nothing he can’t deliver. ]

We cannot offer enough praise for Ivan and Lazar, at Spire. We were ready to settle for much less, when we came across them on Naked Apartments. Lazar and Ivan responded immediately with an amazing apartment, that had so much more going for it than the 20 other places we'd seen. Even better was that they went really above and beyond the call of duty. They facilitated all interactions with the landlord, walked us through the whole process, and even negotiated the rent for us, without us even asking. Ivan and Lazar have real relationships with the landlords, which is just invaluable, especially considering how impersonally most brokers, at larger firms, operate. We've lived in several apartments, all over NY, and typically consider brokers as necessary evils, but this time, it was money well spent.

I rented an apartment from this agent.

Lazar demonstrated unparalleled professionalism and integrity from the initial contact to closing the deal on our apartment. He made what could be a stressful experience of looking for an apartment on a tight schedule a breeze! The communication was excellent, which kept us calm and informed all the way through the process.
The apartment turned out to be EXACTLY what we were looking for. Couldn't ask for more!
