“Kris Keller took the time to truly understand the governmental regulations that impact our organization and were able to communicate our specific requirements to potential buyers. A major benefit of working with him was his willingness to attend our Board meetings and explain the intricate details of each sale of our three properties in Shorewood, Wheeling and Geneva. A great organization to do business with – very knowledgeable about the commercial real estate field.”- Mark Hatch, Reaching Across Illinois Library System
“We had 30 acres of land in Buffalo Grove we were considering selling. Kris did a land analysis to determine whether or not we should sell the property for residential or commercial use. He then handled all the details of the transaction to help get us the maximum price. We were so pleased with the results that he is now a long-term partner for us.”- Dave Anstett, 1300 Rose Road LLC
“They helped us find and buy the right property, consulted with us on building a 122,000 square foot industrial facility, and continue to work with us to keep the 43,000 square feet of tenant space leased. Kris always makes us feel like we’re number one – giving us personal attention, responding quickly and sharing his knowledge.”- Tom Anstett, Powernail Co.
“Kris is the consummate pro. He worked with me for a year to make sure I got the best result. He listens, patiently and endlessly visits locations, and successfully negotiated concessions. He knows his game inside out.”- Robert Jordan, InterimExecs LLCRobert Jordan, Interim CEO, Inc.
“When a visitor from the corporate office chose to fly in with minimal notice to view potential properties, Kris rearranged his schedule while coordinating with 9 project managers so we were able to see them in one day. He is very knowledgeable regarding the market, area, suitable locations with their pros and cons, availability (even before properties were put on the market), typical rates and their reasonableness, etc. He was more concerned with finding the right fit than the time and effort involved. His thorough engagement led us to such a perfect “home” for our business we chose to sign a lengthy 7-year lease with two options to renew for an additional three years each.”- Gavin McHugh, General Manager, Belson Outdoors, LLC
