American Street Realty (“ASR”), the sister company of the industry leading commercial mortgage banking firm American Street Capital (“ASC”), was created to establish the most trusted and discreet full service commercial brokerage company in the Chicago market. ASR focuses strictly on small balance housing properties from $1MM up to $30MM.
Exclusively representing off market opportunities to our long standing high net worth clients and family offices, ASR is committed to transactions that are done quietly, quickly, and without impacting the operations of the property. Most importantly, the relationship with ASC eliminates financing as a factor in being able to successfully trade a property. The principals of ASR have combined to have over 30 years of commercial real estate experience and have been directly involved in over $400MM of transactions.
If the most important factors in choosing real estate representation is confidentiality, dedicated service, and strategic analytics then we look forward to hearing from you.
Capital Markets Expertise
ASR has the luxury of being the sister company of American Street Capital, a best in class national commercial mortgage banking firm. This synergy allows ASR to have real time knowledge of how the capital markets impact value, leverage and the financing of the asset.
Prior to signing an exclusive listing agreement, ASR performs extensive due diligence on all aspects of the asset including market trends, physical condition, deferred maintenance, historical and current operations, as well as the readily available financing. Once this analysis is complete, we provide owners with realistic valuation and strategies to mitigate setbacks that may delay closing.
ASR maintains an extensive base of national real estate investors that includes local owner/operators, family offices, private real estate funds and REITs. Therefore, we have an in depth understanding of these investor’s appetite and qualifications, which creates efficiencies and expedites the disposition process.
White Glove Approach
ASR is committed to being involved in every aspect of the disposition in order to maintain control and provide real time feedback to our clients. We make it our responsibility to ensure that all parties involved are all adhering to their responsibilities and working cohesively to close. In addition, our team is dedicated to always accompanying the buyer’s team on site so that operations, tenants, and employees are not disrupted.
ASR understands that the deposition of an asset may cause disruption and uncertainty among tenants and employees. For that reason, we will only present our listings to qualified investors with the upmost confidentiality. All prospective bidders are required to execute a confidentiality agreement, provide proof of funds and demonstrate a track record of having owned and operated a similar or greater sized asset. We believe that vetting prospective bidders is as critical as the due diligence we perform.
