FAQ

Why market a property versus trying to sell it off-market? Follow-up question, what does a full marketing process and timing look like?

For the most part, marketing a property ensures wider exposure and more control over the process. A broker's job is to create excitement about a buying opportunity, unlock potential upside, and drive the process so a seller ends up with not only the best price but also the best buyer at the table. This is hard to do off-market. Buyers love buying off-market, which should tell sellers everything they need to know

Who are the buyers in the middle market and how has their profile evolved over time?

We have seen an evolution of buyers as Chicago has become more of an international city over the last 15 years. When I started in brokerage the typical buyer was the largest landlord in any submarket, now we are seeing new buyers enter the market with capital from a national and international community often winning the deals

What makes someone a good broker both from a seller’s and a buyer’s perspective?

Keeping their clients’ best interest at the forefront and making recommendations on what to do based on experience and honesty. A great broker never thinks about a single transaction as the end of a relationship and rather the beginning of a long-term relationship

Is now a good time to acquire property and do you see the value of real estate going up or down in the Chicago market?

Now is a great time to acquire property because of the low cost of capital. In addition, we are seeing many investors diversify out of an overheated stock market and into bricks and mortar assets as a hedge against inflation

Where are the best deals?

This is impossible to answer without first understanding a client's investment strategy. Make sure your broker understands what you are looking for, so you always get an early call
