Passionate About Helping My Clients Achieve Their Real Estate Goals
Raphael Collazo is a licensed commercial real estate agent specializing in retail and multi-family properties. Transitioning from a career in software, Raphael brings a strong technical background and a love for dissecting complex problems to his client interactions. These characteristics enable him to provide innovative and effective real estate solutions to help his clients get the most out of each transaction. As a real estate investor himself, Raphael is acutely aware of what investors look for when evaluating commercial property. As a result, he’s able to offer a unique perspective and help his clients make the best possible decision based on their financial goals.
Prior to joining the Grisanti Group, Raphael worked as a software implementation consultant for FAST Enterprises, a software company that provides C.O.T.S software products to government agencies. Having lived and worked in various locations around the United States and abroad including Pordenone, Italy, Phoenix, Arizona, Washington D.C, San Juan, Puerto Rico, and Louisville Kentucky, Raphael has gained a unique understanding of cultural intricacies and has leveraged those experiences to expand his professional network to better serve his clients.
Along with being a full-time commercial agent, Raphael is also the author of the Millennial Playbook series, a book series that focuses on personal and professional development topics for young professionals. He wrote his latest book, "Before You Sign That Lease" to help business owners with the often difficult process of leasing commercial real estate. As a performance coach and speaker, he's also had the opportunity to speak to thousands of students and professionals on a wide range of subjects.
