Zia Realty Group Broker/Owner James Chrobocinski shrugs off the suggestion that he is a “mogul in the making.”
“I wouldn’t go that far,” he said.
But Chrobocinski’s expansion into the Los Alamos real estate market has been meteoric and his plans are undoubtedly ambitious.
Chrobocinski’s Los Alamos roots run deep. His grandfather, James Bramble, moved to Los Alamos to work on the Manhattan project.
LAPD Cmdr. Randy Chrobocinski Foster is his brother and his other brother Joe Foster, and his sister Jennifer Foster King, also live here.
Chrobocinski moved to Corpus Christi with his father just after junior high.
“I have been trying to get back here ever since,” Chrobocinski said. It took him 26 years to reach that goal. He and his wife Jacqueline, decided to move here with his son JJ in June 2011 in order to take care of his grandfather.
Chrobocinski’s career path echoes his mother’s, Jeannie Bramble Foster, who worked as a registered nurse in Los Alamos for a number of years before becoming a real estate agent for the Pat Rogers Agency.
