Ben joined 33 Realty in 2018 as a Senior Broker specializing in mixed-use and multi-family investment sales in Chicago’s mid-market ($1M – $30M in value). Having brokered deals across the north-side neighborhoods, Ben brings expert market knowledge and brokerage experience to every client he represents in every transaction. Ben began his career in real estate in 2014 after spending five years out of college working in risk consulting where he advised clients in multiple industries and markets, exposing him to a wide range of business strategies, goals, and services. This experience helped Ben refine a ‘problem solving’ skill-set, enabling him to understand businesses and their challenges from both a strategic and operational perspective. The experience and skills learned while consulting has proven invaluable to his career in brokerage. Understanding that each client and property is unique with their own challenges; Ben takes on the role of both transaction broker and trusted advisor for his clients. Being deeply involved in the cross-business development of 33 Realty’s comprehensive suite of services; Ben assesses the needs of each client and property and offers value-added solutions beyond the transaction, including 33 Realty’s property management and leasing services as well as re-development and renovation opportunities through Cubed Construction. Prior to moving to Chicago, Ben graduated from the Kelley School of Business at Indiana University with a bachelors in Finance in 2010.
