David Graff joined Compass in February 2015, making him one of the longest tenured agents at the company. Recruited by both big and small commercial firms, David instead followed his entrepreneurial spirit to Compass, then only a residential brokerage, to start a new commercial business from scratch and grow it his own way. After only 8 months his business had grown so much he needed to bring on another full time commercial agent, Jake Velazquez, and officially formed The Graff Team. The Graff Team welcomed commercial agent Rachel Rainaldi in January of 2018, and, due to continued strong growth throughout the year, they hired another seasoned agent, Jordan Plesser, in September. Since its inception, the Graff Team has done over 60 commercial transactions for clients, Compass brokers, and Compass employees.
The Graff Team provides an alternative to the corporate commercial names in the industry, treating you like a person rather than a project. They provide the highest level of customer service, careful to take on the right amount of listings to stay available to clients anytime, day or night. Because of their firm belief in quality over quantity, they have forged strong relationships with past commercial clients that fuel their repeat and referral business. Although continued success has taken the business to new heights and larger spaces, they continue to nurture their smaller clients and provide the same level of quality service that defines their brand. From 1000sf to 100,000sf The Graff Team treats all its commercial clients like VIP’s.
The Graff Team represents both landlords and tenants for retail, office and investment transactions. From Harlem to the Financial District, Brooklyn and Queens, their agents have the experience and know-how to service all your commercial needs.
Commercial is a 24/7 365 business, but when David is not working he can be found walking around with his yellow lab Maggie through the village, training Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (when he’s not hurt) or looking for any opportunity to take his car out and hit the open road. Jake can be found out in Williamsburg playing basketball or jamming on his guitar with friends. Rachel can be found with friends trying new restaurants all over Manhattan and Brooklyn. Jordan can be found on the golf course or at the gym.
