Since 2005, Jim has focused his business mission to build a successful and award-winning real estate consulting business in the formation of the Gramata Realty Group and has proudly joined forces with Chicago’s leading real estate company, @properties because of its shared vision and devotion to quality service and professionalism.
He graduated Cum Laude with a Masters of Architecture degree from The University of Illinois Chicago which is an added skill set for each of his clients.
