The Year Ahead

Updated: May 4

Happy New Year from GAIN CRE! We are excited to begin the New Year with an intense focus on growth and expansion on all of our business lines. We are quickly putting the pieces together to ensure that we offer the best real estate services in the market for our trusted client partners.


What will keep us busy this year:

  1. As of January 1, GAIN CRE Services has secured several new property management assignments totaling 300,000 square feet of office space and 150,000 square feet of retail in Illinois and Indiana. We look forward to providing the highest quality service to our tenants and clients. Patrick Napue, Vice President, Property Management, leads this vertical.

  2. GAIN continues to bring on new investor partners for value-add and distressed real estate investments. We are raising capital to deploy on behalf of our clients. We have implemented several technological advances that provide our investors with a smooth, seamless, end-to-end transaction.

  3. Acquiring strategically located land for the purpose of Build-to-Suit (BTS) projects with nationally recognized brands.

  4. Building the brokerage platform into the preeminent firm in the Chicago suburbs. Our commercial real estate brokerage team is growing! We are looking to add junior and senior level, highly competent, talented individuals to join the team. Reach out if you know anyone who fits the bill!
