Our Team

At our inception in 2009, we were forced to navigate through the wreckage imposed by the 2008 housing crisis.  We saw service providers abandoning the market and knew clients were in desperate need of reliable operators for their real estate.  We also understood that to fully optimize a real estate investment we’d have be experts across all service lines.  We’ve spent every day since our first building and endlessly working to perfect the integrated services model that has become 33 & CubedConstruction.

After reading “Rich Dad, Poor Dad” by R. Kiyosaki, Drew caught the real estate and entrepreneur bug. For the next four years Drew would work as an engineer during the day and forming what would be 33 Realty & Cubed Construction in his leisure time. Now, after 33’s launch in 2009, Drew concentrates heavily on company strategy, vision, infrastructure, and company culture.

Outside of work Drew loves spending time with his family and friends; he coaches his two children in multiple sports, loves snow skiing and remains an active contributor in his community.

Eric has spent his entire life in Illinois, growing up in the Northwest Suburbs of Chicago and eventually attending the University of Illinois where he earned his Bachelor and Master of Accountancy degrees and followed that by obtaining his CPA accreditation.  After a 10-year run in Corporate America at Pricewaterhouse Coopers, LLP and FTI Consulting where he specialized in audit and financial restructuring, respectively, he decided to pursue his long time passion for real estate.

Over his time in Corporate America, Eric developed a vast network of real estate owners and developers looking for opportunities in the multifamily sector and reliable service providers to operate their properties.  With demand for investment real estate abound coming out of the Great Recession and a clear void in the market for reputable service providers, he abandoned the corporate world in 2012 and set out to help build the fully integrated real estate services firm that is now 33 & Cubed.  

In addition to his executive level responsibilities, Eric leads business development and marketing initiatives, as well as focuses on new market entries and strategic JV’s with 33 & Cubed clients.  He also spearheads the Companies’ real estate investment training platform, “33 University”, which teaches 33 & Cubed team members how to become real estate investors.

Outside of work, Eric devotes his time to coaching his three kids in soccer, baseball and softball.  He spends too much time supporting the Cubs and not enough time figuring out golf.  A mission close to the heart of his entire family, he is on the board of the Epilepsy Foundation of Chicago, which serves to find a cure for epilepsy.  He is also a licensed broker in Illinois.

Eric attended all 3 losses in the 2016 World Series.
