The CHI Story

Many people make the mistake of assuming that real estate Sales Representatives and Brokers are the same – one size fits all. That is far from the truth. Liquor licenses, zoning, bylaws, fixturing periods: hospitality real estate is a different beast.

CHI Real Estate Group is comprised of experienced and knowledgeable masters at taming that beast. Our name stands for Commercial, Hospitality, Investment, but it’s also CHI, aka, the life force. We take the negatives generally associated with a real estate transaction and create positive experiences by ensuring our clients are well-informed, well-prepared and confident they’re being represented by someone who puts their needs first.

CHI Real Estate Group is a full-service real estate team with a high traffic website and thousands of dedicated email subscribers. We make our value proposition (Yeah We Sell Restaurants) evident in the marketplace so that potential buyers from around the world are compelled to join our online community and follow us. We specialize in selling restaurants – it’s our bread and butter!

ORI GRAD

MANAGING DIRECTOR

Over the last thirteen years, Ori has established a reputation for dedication, insight, and professionalism that have made him a trusted advisor to some of the city’s top chefs and restauranteurs. His clients include trendsetters such as Carl Heinrich, winner of Top Chef Canada and owner of Richmond Station; Grant Van Gameren, who made his start with Bar Isabel and continues growing his success across the city; and Frank Parhizgar from Franks Kitchen.
His uncanny ability to predict Toronto’s next hot neighbourhood, coupled with a wealth of knowledge about all things commercial real estate, from industry insight and investment potential to licencing and location, have earned him a reputation as the ‘go-to’ guy for anyone looking to open The Next Big Thing – not surprising, as many of his clients regularly appear in the Top 10 lists of Toronto Life, NOW Magazine and BlogTO.
Ori has an approachable demeanour, extensive experience, and a gift for being simple and direct that is ideal for both industry veterans and the ‘green’ entrepreneur who needs direction on financing, renovations, municipal compliance and legal matters.

Ori is a licensed Broker and Certified Negotiation Expert.

BOBBY SHARPE

SALES REPRESENTATIVE


Though Bobby now lives and breathes Commercial Real Estate, he’s always been a star player in Toronto’s bar and restaurant scene. He started in the hospitality game tending bar and toting trays in well-known establishments such as Canoe, Momofuku, Bar Isabel, and Splendido.

Bobby was drawn to a career in hospitality real estate by the prospect of working with like-minded, passionate individuals. He now loves having the opportunity to continue to support those in the restaurant and bar industry by helping Toronto’s top tastemakers find spots for their creative vision. He also credits his two teenage sons as sources of daily inspiration.
