In the real estate market, there’s often an incentive to close a deal as quickly as possible. For Jeff Bauer, the appeal comes from the art of good deal-making – structuring transactions to minimize risk, while obtaining the best terms possible, in a timely fashion.
It starts with listening closely to clients’ voices and understanding their objectives.
“In real estate transactions, project timelines can demand quick responses,” Jeff said. “I maintain clear and open lines of communication with my clients so that my thinking and recommendations align with their goals. I am committed to responding quickly to my client’s needs.”
Before joining Levy Craig in 2014, Jeff acted as a real estate transaction manager on behalf of a Fortune 100 company. Jeff honed his real estate negotiation skills in that role, leading to millions in cost savings and contributing to the continued partnership between his employer and the client.
