Your Go To Investor Friendly Realtor Each Major City

56 Replies

I am curious to get a sense from other investors out there who your "go-to" realtor is in each city for info on the area or who you would use to buy or market your properties. There are many city posts etc. with opinions and I never saw a post where they were all combined into one thread. For example, to start I would use:

Washington DC Metro- @Russell Brazil

Cleveland - @James Wise

Boston -

Philadelphia -

Pittsburgh -

New York –

Newark –

Baltimore –

Charlotte –

Greensboro –

Indianapolis –

Detroit –

Cincinnati –

Atlanta –

St. Louis –

Kansas City –

Chicago – 

Feel free to add and expand.

 Thanks for the mention Chris. I am homered to be considered the go to guy for the Cleveland market.

@Chris Seveney I recommend @Lumi Ispas as your realtor whom would be happy to help in Downtown Chicago, North Side and the suburbs around. A lot of my international clients buy Downtown condo units and multifamily buildings in the Northside! 

I think this is great but to me an investor friendly Realtor needs 2 very important qualities - experience as a Realtor and experience as an investor.  

There are Realtors calling themselves investor friendly because they are long term investors but were just licensed yesterday.   Particularly for an out of town client, that can be problematic.  Knowing good neighborhoods, cap rates, cash on cash return, etc is only part of it.  If the Realtor doesn't know how to get from there to the settlement table in the most advantageous way for their client, they are not the best choice.  

On the other side are long term Realtors who may have worked with many investors but have limited personal investment experience.  I think it helps to know and have experienced late night investor thoughts, worries and doubts.
