the man behind the mic 


Hi. I'm Geoffrey Bray. The Bray behind the Bray Chats. You can call me Geoff, pronounced Jeff with a G! 

I have the distinct honor of being the co-owner and broker of Engel & Völkers Minneapolis, which happens to be home to the best Real Estate Advisors in the Twin Cities of Minnesota. In fact, we might be the only group of licensed real estate professionals who actually take immense pride in the fact that we advise our clients, instead of selling stuff to them. 

I started my career on a whim with some sort of 25-year-old ‘complex' that I could make the entire industry better. I work on the premise that nobody will do anything for me, so I at least initiate everything myself. It's annoying, really. Just ask the amazing people that work with me. I can't even imagine what they'd say.

My amazing wife Jessica and children, Gianna, Bennett and Donny put up with my non-sense more than anyone. For that, I thank them endlessly.
