Jack Rosenberg, a member of Society of Industrial and Office Realtors (SIOR), and Fred Regnery are leaders in Colliers’ corporate real estate practice. Major consumer product companies hire Jack and Fred throughout the country to represent them on real estate transactions.

Though Jack Rosenberg and Fred Regnery are based in Chicago, their practice takes them throughout North America with completed transactions from Hawaii to North Carolina and many points in between.

Jack and Fred pride themselves in being the real estate advisers that listens and delivers. They aggressively represent their clients’ interests while maintaining a good working relationship with the parties on the other side of the transaction.

Case studies and client letters demonstrate Jack and Fred’s experience with many of Colliers' largest clients.

A lease is often the second largest expenditure for a business after payroll, so it must be more than a cost center. They strive to make your real estate a competitive advantage.

2020 Q4 Chicago Industrial Big Box Report

Chicago's biggest and most modern industrial buildings recorded an impressive and record-setting year despite the unpredictably introduced by the Coronavirus pandemic, an economic recession, political turmoil, and social unrest. New leases and lease expansions totaled 24.9 million square feet in big box buildings over the course of 2020, a new record. This figure was a 20 percent increase over 2019's total of 20.7 million square feet, the previous record. Mega-sized leases greater than 1 million square feet accounted for 42 percent of this activity, with eight new leases totaling 10.4 million square feet signed during the year. Year-over-year, Chicago's big box vacancy rate declined slightly to 8.51 percent. The rate dipped as low as 7.83 percent during the second quarter of 2020, then spiked to 8.77 percent during the third quarter of the year due to the delivery of 3.9 million square feet of vacant speculative development projects and new vacancies introduced in second generation big box buildings. An uptick in demand during the fourth quarter pushed the vacancy rate down 26 basis points. Net absorption was positive during all four quarters of 2020, totaling 15.1 million square feet. While this is below 2019's record net absorption total of 17.4 million square feet, it was one of the greatest annual totals in the big box market's history, and was particularly impressive in light of the uncertainty experienced in nearly every facet of life during the year.
