Chicago corporate real estate advisers


Colliers International is the leader in global real estate services defined by our spirit of enterprise. 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.

2021 Q2 Chicago Industrial Big Box Report

Following record net absorption during the first quarter of 2021, Chicago’s biggest and most modern industrial buildings posted near-record net absorption again during the second quarter, totaling 7.1 million square feet. This demand resulted in a net absoprtion total of 15.3 million square feet through the first six months of 2021, eclipsing the 15.1-million-square-foot net absorption total from all four quarters of 2020. Record new leasing activity totaling 8.6 million square feet, only three big box construction completions, and few new vacancies pushed the big box vacancy rate down 185 basis points to 6.30 percent, one of the lowest rates ever recorded among big box buildings.
