Rafael Murillo, Principal, Real Estate Broker
Christian Bernhagen, Real Estate Broker
Long-time lovers of Chicago, Rafael Murillo and Christian Bernhagen make up the RM Luxury Group, a team of Realtors and real estate brokers at Compass. This top-producing team, which made $35 million in sales in 2021, works tirelessly to help their luxury clients find the apartments of their dreams.
A first-generation American, Murillo’s interest in the industry was sparked by the skyscrapers he used to see when attending immigration hearings with his mom. Now a successful and personable Realtor and team leader, Murillo uses his self-taught and hardworking mindset to help his clients build generational wealth through homeownership. Passionate about learning more and perfecting his craft, he is always looking to meet new people and grow personally and professionally.
“I truly live and breathe real estate,” he says. “I love this job and my real estate mind won’t turn off.”
An expert in marketing and customer service, Murillo’s business is booming and frequently attracts high-net worth clients from CEOs to professional athletes. A member of the Sports & Entertainment Division at Compass, his team is often bombarded by calls from sports agents who want them to represent their pro-athlete clients interested in Chicago’s hottest new developments.
Bolstered by a relentless work ethic, wealth of knowledge and special eye for detail, team member Bernhagen consistently goes out of his way to meet the needs of his clients, many of whom come from referrals. Known for his quick responsiveness and professionalism, he presents his clients with a very detail-oriented, step-by-step process from the beginning of searching for their apartment to the day of closing. “The RM Luxury Group team offers a premier experience to each client,” he says. “With our proven track record of success, clients can expect the highest level of professionalism and tailoring to their needs and wants, which we provide better than any other real estate group.”
