As a broker with Chicago Real Estate Resources and lifelong resident of the Chicago area, Steven has completed over 250 real estate sales and leasing transactions since 2010. His primary focus is listing mid-market investment properties in the City of Chicago ranging in value from $500,000 to $5,000,000.
In 2016 Steven was designated a Certified Commercial Investment Member (CCIM). The CCIM designation is the industry’s most prestigious Commercial Real Estate certification with a high caliber curriculum and experience requirement that has been met by only 6% of commercial practitioners nationwide. As a testament to the exclusivity of this designation within a 20-mile radius of downtown Chicago, there are currently only 55 commercial Real Estate Brokers holding the CCIM designation. CCIM members successfully complete thousands of transactions annually, representing more than $200 billion in value.
Steven over the term of his sales career has been recognized as a top producer, earning eight sales awards from the CommercialForum a division of the Chicago Association of Realtors. There are over 2,700 members eligible for these awards and only 2% are able to produce the high volume of sales to rank as one of the best Chicagoland Commercial Brokers for the year.
Early in his career, Steven worked as a licensed real estate appraiser where he appraised multi-family, commercial, industrial, office, mixed-use, retail, vacant land, and residential properties throughout the Chicago area. The insights and connections obtained by his time as a real estate appraiser have proven a valuable resource in helping his commercial brokerage clients achieve their goals.
Prior to his career in real estate, Steven earned his BA degree from the University of Iowa. Steven maintains active memberships with CCIM, The National Association of Realtors, and The Chicago Association of Realtors.
