Selling An Industrial Investment

We love selling industrial buildings!  We have been successfully selling industrial properties for many years. In fact, Kevin M. Lynch, CCIM hold the record for Sperry Van Ness as to listing and selling the largest and the third largest industrial building in Sperry Van Ness history!  Selling an industrial building or portfolio or buildings is a complicated assignment that involves reviewing all lease documents, determining the "true" current and future net operating incomes and evaluating how to maximize the sale price of the asset. We work with ownership to insure that all of the property’s value is identified.

Within 24 hours of receiving property details we will have a marketing package ready including a specific property website. Within one week all Sperry Van Ness Advisors from Chicago to New York to Los Angeles to Miami will know of the investment opportunity. Within two weeks we will send out an email blast to 58,000 commercial real estate brokers. No other commercial real estate firm will do this.

Once we have a qualified buyer they will be given a password to access other levels on the website and will be able to download leases and other critical documents. Our goal is to provide as much information to the buyer as needed to insure the deal does not get renegotiated at a later date due to missing information.

Our skills will be used throughout the process as we work with the brokers, buyers, lenders, appraisers and inspectors. We know what is needed to close a deal and we get it done.

We are top producers at Sperry Van Ness International and have been called the best broker in Chicago. We have achieved the highest ranking in customer surveys and are one of the most recognized real estate brokerage firms in the Country. You will be given expert guidance and informed on an ongoing basis with all that we do.
