Founded in 2006, Building Equity provides first-class real estate services to private owners, institutional investors, and asset managers. With a wealth of experience and in-depth knowledge of the Chicago real estate market, we focus on commercial investment sales and advisory services.
We deliver thoughtful, high-quality service to each of our clients, and we take pride in creating innovative and proactive solutions. Our portfolio includes over 100 commercial real estate transactions with an aggregate value of more than $300 million.
Building Equity provides superior service throughout the buying and selling process. With more than a decade of experience, we know Chicago’s real estate market. We’ll conduct research and equip you with the latest market information, so you can make decisions with confidence. With unparalleled one-on-one attention, we’ll also assist you with valuation, marketing, due diligence, negotiating, and closing.
Our experts will work closely with you to put together a plan that effectively manages your assets, maximizes your property returns, and achieves your short and long-term goals. We’ll prepare future market projections and conduct a tailored, comprehensive data analysis of your portfolio to determine the best places to mitigate risk and generate revenue.
As a business owner or property investor, you might qualify for IRC Section 1031, an exception that allows you to postpone paying taxes on your gains if you reinvest the proceeds in a similar property. While these transactions can be complex, Building Equity’s professionals have the expertise to advise you throughout the entire process.
Distressed assets are properties that are performing below market levels. Frequently, they offer higher yields for investors than traditional property assets. We’ll sit down and discuss whether investing in a distressed asset is the right decision for you. If so, we’ll work with you to acquire the property and ensure that it generates maximum returns.
At Building Equity, we also have a strong track record of success working closely with banks and other financial institutions. We have extensive REO experience. To date, we have completed dozens of transactions in the Chicago area.
