Office description

CBRE is the pre-eminent commercial real estate firm in Chicago and has been serving the city since 1975. CBRE Chicago provides a full range of real estate services to meet a broad range of client needs from site selection to lease negotiation to building management to valuation. 

Since Crain’s Chicago Business began compiling its Largest Brokers List in 2004, CBRE Chicago has been the #1 firm each and every year. Our market leading Tenant Representation Practice sets the standard in the Chicago market. CBRE’s Tenant Representatives complete some of the largest and most complex commercial real estate transactions in Chicago each and every year.

By sheer volume, CBRE is exposed to more real estate market information and negotiates with more landlords than any other firm. This insight is a competitive advantage other firms cannot claim and is a significant benefit to our Tenant Representation clients.

Our real estate client base ranges from Fortune 500 corporations with global reach to local nonprofit institutions to emerging growth companies. We attribute this broad range of appeal to our simple but effective business plan: we help customers identify and align their real estate requirements with strategic business, financial and operational objectives and use our market leverage to drive the best economic transactions for our clients.

Despite the firm’s market dominance, CBRE Chicago believes that the true measure of success is providing superior service to its clients so that they can receive a quality and consistency of commercial real estate service delivery worldwide.

Located at 311 South Wacker, the office is home to downtown Brokerage, Urban Retail, Urban Industrial Properties, Global Corporate Services, downtown Investment, Project Management, Workforce Management, Asset Services and Hotel groups. The office also serves as the central location for the firm's market leading Research, Financial Analysis, Mapping and Marketing groups servicing all Chicago region offices.​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
