Why Sellers Seek Us

Our clients come to us because they know two things: we have a strong track record of finding the best buyers in the mid-market space, and we have the strongest analytics team of any mid-market brokerage firm in the Midwest. But there is much more to the story…

We are regularly hired by some of the largest banks, hedge funds and private equity shops in the United States to provide valuations of properties in the Chicago area.

We valued over 5,000 real estate assets worth over $2B in the last 12 months for our clients—all in the mid-market space. We have found that knowing the range a property is likely to trade for is the first step in giving our clients the best possible information in order for them to make an educated decision about their assets.

We have one of the largest databases of buyers in the country. Our database has thousands of active buyers of property in the mid-market space and we keep in close contact with these clients to assess their current capabilities and needs. When a seller comes to us, we comb our lists to create a strong initial marketing list of buyers—we know that the longer a property sits on the open market, the more difficult it is for sellers to feel confident they are getting the best price.

What We Do for Institutions

We offer institutions—such as hedge funds, banks, private equity firms and bulk buyers and sellers—a one-stop shop for all things ranging from one-off transactions to portfolio dispositions. Our team’s local knowledge of market trends and vast database of buyers provide such clients best-in-class disposition services on their assets, drawing maximum value for their properties.
