Christopher Mezera was born in Ocean County, New Jersey and graduated from New York University in 1998. After graduation he pursued a career in music, playing shows with his rock band all over New York City, LA and one overseas show in the UK. During that time, he paid his bills the way most aspiring artists do in NYC, by waiting tables. After a few years of this, he thought that there had to be a way to make more money and have more freedom to pursue his dreams as a musician.
Then in 2002, by chance and a little bit of luck, his NYC real estate career was born. The long hair and the rock’n’roll days are behind him now, but he still insists that he is the most non-typical real estate agent you will ever meet. Chris makes his clients feel incredibly comfortable because his demeanor is so friendly and laid back, yet confident because of his over 20 years of experience in the real estate industry.
“I started out like everyone else, by hiring an agent over 20 years ago to find an apartment in New York City. I know what my clients are going through, because I went through it myself, more than once. Understanding both sides of the equation now, I can help my clients to find the best available apartments in the quickest way possible. This is New York City and with a less than 2% vacancy rate again, you have to be prepared and act quickly. That has always been the key.”
Christopher attributes his success in this industry to being a great listener, a straight-shooter and delivering to his clients exactly what they are asking for, often making deals happen in record time and when others thought it wouldn’t be possible.
“At the end of the day my job is to help someone to find their perfect home. That’s a really big deal when you think about it, because so many memories and important moments are shared in this space. Whether they are a first-time student in New York City, just landed their first job here or it’s the first time a couple is sharing an apartment together, it’s a huge step in their lives. I like to be the one to help them find the perfect place for their situation, in the fastest way possible.”
“My clients always have the top pick of the available apartments on the market because they come to the apartment viewings educated and prepared. I educate all of my clients on the current market situation, which changes every few months in New York, and tell them what they need to have ready to beat out other prospective applicants and offers for the apartment they desire. The best places always disappear the fastest in NYC, in both rentals and sales, and that is why I stress to all of my clients to have everything ready BEFORE we view any apartments together. This is my “big secret” that always gives my clients the edge in an ultra-competitive real estate market like New York City. That was the key over 20 years ago and the same is true today.”
