Rafael Murillo has established himself as one of Chicago's most successful and sought after luxury real estate agents, as demonstrated by his numerous industry awards and long list of satisfied, high-profile clients, including CEOs, entertainers and professional athletes.
At the core of Rafael's solutions-oriented approach is a desire to become each and every client's Realtor for life. Responsive and incredibly knowledgeable, he works throughout the Chicago area including the suburbs helping buyers, sellers and renters in all housing types and price points, and he's an excellent resource for those relocating, whether from across the country or around the world.
As a member of the Institute for Luxury Home Marketing, he's particularly well-known for building strategic marketing campaigns and social media buzz for homes by crafting a compelling story that promotes not only the property, but the lifestyle and image the home conveys. Never one to shy away from a challenge, Rafael consistently succeeds where others have failed. An established expert in Chicago real estate, Rafael has been featured in Crain’s Chicago Business, Top Agent Magazine, and The Wall Street Journal’s Mansion Global among others.
Prior to brokerage, Rafael worked as a mortgage banker in the post-recession market where he took great pride in helping people fulfill the dream of home ownership in challenging times. This experience has also given him valuable insight on market trends and an edge when it comes to understanding his clients' needs.
Despite his busy schedule, Rafael still finds time to give back to his community. He is very passionate about volunteering his time for nonprofits and charities.
Global Exposure in China
Rafael Murillo has an exclusive partnership with Caimeiju which focuses on connecting real estate professionals with high-end Asian consumers. Caimeiju is a platform that allows U.S. real estate agents to market their properties to the exploding Chinese market. Chinese buyers are playing an increasingly large role in purchasing U.S. luxury real estate. All of my listings over $1M are translated into Chinese by professional linguists, making our properties and company information searchable in China. Our listings are then shared through Chinese social media, real estate, and video sharing websites, and can be found on top Chinese local search engines like Baidu, Google China, Bing.CN, and Yahoo Taiwan with top Chinese keywords. This is an exciting new addition to my International Marketing Program that enables me to be fully represented in Asian markets.
