Team

In 2012, the founders of ACO Commercial set out to write the definitive word in mid-market commercial property brokerage.  The very idea of ACO was conceived from the void in the Chicago market for professional representation for sub-$30 million investment property sales.  The ACO platform was carefully designed from the ground up to meld the benefits of large, national brokerage firms, smaller locally owned, and focused practices. The founders of ACO Commercial drew on their backgrounds in commercial real estate, law, Wall Street financial markets, and private equity financing to bring an unparalleled level of talent and attention to clients in the mid-market space, developing marketing strategies and an overall approach specifically tailored to this arena.

ACO Commercial’s representation includes the unprecedented combination of both block-to-block knowledge of the Chicago area properties, along with the global reach of an extensive investor database.  Our clients now have access to the broadest possible market coverage for investment property sales, and enjoy a durable competitive advantage in the Chicagoland marketplace.
