About Chad Grabham


Not Your Typical Realtor. Not Your Typical Realtor Bio.

If you hate reading real estate agent bios, not to worry, I do too. They’re like cardboard — stiff, bland, and identical to every other one out there. You probably even saw this bio page and thought: “Oh God, is this going to be another boring list of achievements and awards?” “Where’s the photo of him standing in front of a million-dollar house or holding a phone to his ear with a big-toothed grin?”

Nope. Not here. (But for the record, I have some awards and designations, one bowling trophy I don’t remember winning, and yes, I passed the realtor and broker exams on the first try.)

Instead of lulling you to sleep, I thought I’d take the novel approach of giving you what you actually want: real answers to the questions you’re asking yourself right now. Because you care about the caliber of individual who will be ultimately guiding you through one of the biggest financial investments in your life.

You might be wondering things about me like…

Are you easy to work with?

Depends on who you ask. If you ask those who have stood between my clients and their real estate goals, they'll probably say no. But others will tell you I leave golden footprints in the sand. (This might be one of my favorite quotes from a previous client…) My mom thinks I’m “a peach” and recommends me to all her friends, even the ones who don’t need realtors.

Here’s what I can tell you for sure: I’m honest and candid. I take the same pride in being approachable and friendly as I do in zealously advocating for my clients. (Think Jon Snow fighting the White Walkers!) If you need a quick analytical brain, a strong dose of honesty, and a few mildly inappropriate jokes, you’re in the right place! Loyalty to my family, clients, and friends is one of my core values.

Are you going to return my calls and emails?

Yes, without question. I know this is one of the biggest frustrations and frequent complaints people have about their realtor.

You will find that I’m an answer-on-the-first-ring-kind-of guy. If I’m unable for whatever reason, I will provide same-day acknowledgment and work hard to provide a full response as quickly as possible. I have a high sense of urgency — especially when it comes to meeting (scratch that) exceeding your needs.

How fast can we get a deal done?

I own The Meru Group, which is a team of experienced agents. This means it’s not just me working for you, there’s a whole team behind you. We are all working toward meeting your goals and closing day.

I also own the RETHINK Real Estate brokerage. So when you work with me, you’re working directly with the decision-maker. (That’s right: Most agents work under larger brokerages and have to run everything up the chain of command.) Working with me? There’s no red tape.

Do you have experience doing exactly what I need?

Once I learn more about your goals, I can provide more personalized and specific examples. In the meantime, here are five areas that I specialize in:

1. Traditional home sales, such as buying and/or selling
2. Investments, including short-term fix-and-flips and long-term rental strategies
3. Distressed, short-sale properties and bank-owned properties
4. Seamless relocations, including out-of-state and international moves
5. Interior design, staging, and remodeling (think Nate Berkus minus the notoriety and hair)

Again, this isn’t an exhaustive list. If your goal or situation isn't represented above, don't worry. Contact me anyway. If I can't help, I have an extensive network and would be happy to refer you to someone else with that specialty.

Where do you excel most?

On a personal level, I’m pretty good at cooking. (I make a mean grilled cheese, just ask my kids!) My knees aren’t quite what they once were, but I still climbed Mount Whitney – the highest peak in the lower 48!

On a professional level, I’ve developed many skill sets over my 16+ years in real estate, including:

• The 5 practice areas noted earlier. (Seriously. I’m good at this stuff.)
• Listening. It’s truly a lost art these days. I want to hear what YOU have to say, so I can tailor a strategy around your goals and expectations.
• Negotiating. It’s part art, part science… and a little bit of magic. It’s one of my strong suits and a necessary skill in today’s aggressive market. It’s honestly one of the most important reasons you should hire me. (If you’ve gotten this far down in my bio, I assume you are considering hiring me…)
• Tenacity. I will be with you every step of the way. Bumps in the road sometimes happen (Have you heard of Murphy’s Law?), but once I commit to something, I will see it to the end.
• Candor. I pride myself on being open and honest about your real estate expectations — whether it be price point, length of time to sell, or if I am the best realtor to help you. I don’t want to waste your time or mine unnecessarily.
• Creativity. There’s no cookie-cutter approach when it comes to marketing your home or finding solutions to challenges along the way. I excel at doing things a little differently.

That was entertaining, but just how qualified are you?
Okay, but remember - you asked for it!

• Over $100 million in real estate sales.
• Nearly 1,000 homes sold in Metro Phoenix.
• Certified Negotiating Expert (CNE)
• Certified Distressed Property Expert (CDPE)
• Graduate of the Realtor Institute (GRI)
• Owner & Designated Broker of the RETHINK Real Estate brokerage.
• Creator of the RETHINK Real Estate streamlined process & individualized experience.
• Team Leader & Mentor to an up-and-coming group of AMAZING realtors.
• Never paid for one of those Who’s Who “awards.”
• Know all the words to “We Didn’t Start the Fire.” (I can hear you humming!)
• Hiked the Grand Canyon from rim to rim (nearly 26 miles) in 10 hours.
• Finished two half marathons last year & training for my first full marathon.
• My greatest achievement: I am the proud father of two beautiful girls.

    I have used Chad for several sales and purchases, and he's one of the best in the business! Hardworking, knowledgeable, and friendly, he has always been a pleasure to work with. He gets results quickly, and keeps me fully informed during the process. He has a great network of contacts to get repairs and upgrades done quickly and affordably. I won't use anyone else!

    Chad Grabham went over and beyond to help us get into our place in Scottsdale. My brothers and I wanted a home where we could go and spend time with our family’s. He went and looked at homes for us, did zoom meetings with us, had tons of information about the surrounding area. Just helped in every possible way. Closing went smooth and once we arrived at our new place, they left champagne and wine to help us celebrate.
    He is professional and knowledgeable and is highly recommend as a realtor.

    This is the 2nd time I have worked with Chad Grabham and his team on a new home purchase and I have to say it's been an absolute pleasure both times. Chad's attention to detail and knowledge of the market here in the Greater Phoenix area are unmatched. He works closely with all parties involved to ensure the smoothest transaction and transition as possible. I can't recommend Chad Grabham and his team enough. You can't go wrong putting your trust in the Grabham Team.

    Working with Chad has been great. He has been very communicative, extremely professional and made the process of selling our home very easy. At first the flat rate commission seemed too good to be true, but we couldn't be happier with the service we received. We would definitely recommend Chad to anyone looking to buy or sell their home.

    Chad was recommended by a friend of a friend as we live in another state and did not have any real estate contacts in the Phoenix/Scottsdale area. From the first week gone call with Chad, we were blown away with his real estate knowledge and his analytics. As we moved forward with him, he demonstrated a service level that was second to none. At no point in the 3 months it took to find the perfect property did we question our decision to work with Chad. He went way above and beyond to get is the perfect property. I wouldn’t use anyone else in the future. He is the real deal.
