Find your Home | Love your Neighborhood | Give Back

We are giving back 3% of our sales commission to the nonprofit of your 

As real estate agents, we spend our days exploring countless neighborhoods 
with our clients and educating them on the unique attributes of each one. 
We’ve come to realize that choosing a new home isn’t just about the home 
itself, it’s also about the local communities that become such a big part 
of our lives. We’ve seen first hand how important this is to our clients, 
which is why in 2019, we have decided to give each of our clients the 
opportunity to give back to their local nonprofit of choice. Our hope is 
that this will create a greater connection between our clients and their 
communities while improving the local neighborhoods.


Christian Schaefers and Alexandra Rhea have been friends for years. The duo became close when Christian led Alex’s home-buying journey years ago. During that time, Alex was impressed by Christian’s service, patience and attention to detail, quickly transforming her perception of the real estate industry. Soon after closing, Alex got her real estate license and the two formed The Schaefers | Rhea Team.

Christian's background in marketing and sales has been critical in creating unique strategies to sell properties. With experience in the relocation business, he has had the opportunity to work with top corporate executives in New York and New Jersey. Alex, with roots in the Midwest, is empathetic towards those moving to New York for the first time, and her history in fine arts, communications and business operations has given her an eye for detail and a direct style of communication.

Together, Christian and Alex offer a boutique approach rooted in total honesty and transparency. They pride themselves on their responsiveness, inventive problem-solving skills and their ability to navigate even the most complex transactions to successful conclusions. "We both like to let clients lead the conversation as much as possible," Christian says. "We really listen to them, so that we make sure to understand their point of view, perspective and objectives. Only then do we come up with an approach that will help them reach their individual goals."

The Schaefers | Rhea Team delivers white-glove service that is seamless, customer-focused and yields the best results for their clients, from first-time homebuyers to investors and developers.
