Paul Graffy, originally from Cleveland, Ohio, has been part of the Naples community since the late 1980s.
Since making Naples his permanent home in 2000, Paul has had the privilege of representing many of Naples’ most well-known residents, selling some of the most high-profile homes in the Naples market: a $43 million, 3-acre beach estate featured in the Wall Street Journal; world-class penthouses in The Regent and The Windsor, Naples’ two most prestigious beachfront high-rise buildings; and the renowned Hotel Escalante.
Paul specializes in new construction, having launched Villas Escalante, Old Naples’ premier 16-unit luxury enclave on renowned Fifth Avenue at Third Street, which he sold out, pre-construction, in under five months; Casa Bella, three luxury villas on 11th Avenue South; and Esmeralda on Eighth, the only condominiums in Naples to feature six luxury flats, each with their own private pool and garden, all in one spectacular building. His greatest pride, however, rests in his broad knowledge of Naples’ many communities and various price ranges.
Paul has been recognized by the Wall Street Journal/Real Trend’s Top Agents Report as being in the top half the top 1 percent of REALTORS® nationwide and as one of the top 50 associates in Southwest Florida, from Tampa to Marco Island.
Prior to his career in real estate, Paul enjoyed a successful career in the apparel industry in New York City working for designers Kenneth Cole, Calvin Klein, Joe Boxer and Big Dog Sportswear, serving as Vice President of Sales for the latter three.
Paul and his wife, Susan, work together, and pride themselves on their knowledge, service and attention to detail. They are deeply committed to the local arts, animal rights, nature and conservation, the disadvantaged and elderly in Immokalee and are active in many local charities.
Theatergoers will recognize Paul from his numerous appearances as a leading player at The Naples Players, TheatreZone, Artis-Naples, The Laboratory Theater and The Naples Dinner Theater. Paul was one of 20 students selected nationwide to attend the prestigious Juilliard School, and Florida Weekly named him Southwest Florida’s Best Actor in 2011.
