I am an owner, developer, and general contractor based in the Chicago area. I started in commercial real estate in 2004 in Los Angeles working as a commercial real estate broker for Marcus & Millichap.  I was fortunate to work with some amazing people who taught me a lot about real estate investing.  My focus was on office, industrial and medical office but I bought and sold all types including multi family and self storage.  

In 2010 I moved back to Chicago, my home town, and started my construction company.  We regularly do rehab and renovation projects for both commercial and residential property types, on our own projects and for our clients.  I've completed hundreds of construction projects in the Chicago area as well as consulted on development projects across the country for my clients and partners.  I am active in the investment community in Chicago and always on the lookout for the next rehab opportunity.  

I am also a real estate investor.  I have ownership in a variety of properties including multifamily, retail, strip center, multi tenant office and a hotel.  

My partners and I are always looking for opportunities to connect with other investors and increase our network.  I am also happy to answer any questions I can about real estate development and construction, so don't be shy, say hello!  

Hey @Steven Lowe , Welcome to BP! I am a real estate broker in the Chicagoland area and I am always looking for great new vendors to add to my list. What areas or neighborhoods do you service and what is your specialty (new construction, sf rehabs, multifamily rehabs, etc.)?

Also, I get a lot of off market deals that I sell prior to listing on the MLS. What are you looking for in your personal investments?

Looking forward to connecting!

Hi Travis,

Thanks for the connection!  

We do small commercial, multifamily and single family rehabs.  Example, in the last year I did a gut rehab of a gas station, bakery, 4 unit, 2 flat conversion and a couple of single family residences.  

Personal investments, my partners and I are looking for value added deals in Chicago and the near West suburbs.  We like off market, foreclosure and bankruptcy deals in particular.  

I mostly do projects in Cook County but my partners are in East Lansing, MI so I occasionally do projects there as well. 

Looking forward to connecting!
