Raphael started practicing Real Estate at a boutique firm in the New York Metro area back in 2005; he later joined Level Group Inc., because he believed it had the right infrastructure to better serve him and his clients. He continues in his endeavor, with a keen focus on the Manhattan/Brooklyn residential market, a market all too familiar to him, having been a dweller there for over 20 years. Raphael is experienced, knowledgeable and dependable. As a man of integrity, he is humble enough to admit when he does not have all the answers, yet resourceful enough to know exactly how and where to find them. While some may disagree, Raphael still insists that his greatest attribute is his sense of humor.
As a pass member of the National Association of Realtors, and a current member of the Real Estate Board of New York, Raphael remains current with all of the relevant game changing trends of today's Real Estate industry.
Raphael is a graduate of Baruch College, New York NY, and holds a Bachelors of Business Administration Degree in Marketing.
A member of New York Road Runners, Raphael enjoys running for fun (and for Cancer), and can be found wet and out of breath at the finishing line of many of NYRR’s races. He is also an accomplished Artist who dabbles in oil and acrylics, and a hobby Writer.
When one client asked Raphael why he chose to work in the real estate industry, he aptly answered, "I'm not in the real estate business, I'm in the 'personal gratification' business, at the end of the day, I just wanna see my clients happy!"
