We are thrilled to announce the Thomas Group has merged with the Ratay Home Sales team in an effort to provide even better service and value to our customers. It could not have happened at a better time with the hot real estate market in our area!
Both Jim Thomas and Chris Ratay have been top producers at RE/MAX for a number of years. Building upon that success, this collaboration is to bring the best of what both teams have so all current and future clients are guaranteed a top-notch real estate experience.
About Chris Ratay
For the past 14 years, Chris Ratay has “beyond excelled” at being a Boulder Realtor. Not only has he averaged $30 million in sales per year, but he’s also had the opportunity to add to an impressive number of awards to his resume. He personally sells about 1% of the local property transactions per year, earning him Elite Agent status. His team members are involved in almost another 1%, and all the fellow agents at RE/MAX Alliance make up nearly 30% of the sales activity in the county.
A dedicated salesman with more than 30 years of sales and marketing experience, Chris also has a background in management and client relationships. He excels at negotiations, creative marketing, utilizing technology, and thrives on problem-solving. Buying and Selling requires strategy and experience while limiting stress and managing expectations.
“Going the Extra Mile” — Chris and his wife Erin broke a Guinness World Record in 2004 after spending more than 4-years traveling around the world on 2 motorcycles through 50 countries across 6 continents, and riding 101,322 miles, nearly doubling the previous record.
He’s been ranked in the Top 10 for teams and individuals in Colorado for multiple years and now he’s excited about partnering with Jim Thomas and his team.
“Jim operates at a high level and brings experience in the commercial and luxury sectors,” Chris said. “We each wanted to build small teams while coaching agents to be successful, so we grew our businesses together, but separately – we’ve actually been referring clients to each other for years because we appreciate how each other does business.” As told to Mike Shelton, Real Producers Magazine.
Now, they are bringing their resources together as a collective.
