Kyle Kamin is currently an Executive Vice President with CBRE (in 2012 he became the youngest Professional in the 70,000 employee firm to hold such title). A specialist in negotiating complex real estate transactions on behalf of major corporations, law firms, and growth stage companies, Kyle has played an instrumental role in shaping the Chicago real estate landscape and is regarded as one of the preeminent real estate consultants in the country.

In 2012, Kyle arranged one of the largest and most significant corporate transactions in the history of Chicago on behalf of Motorola Mobility. Mayor Rahm Emanuel declared the deal "a Game Changer" as it solidified the River North area as the technology hub of the Midwest and contributed to Chicago's largest single employment influx ever.
Kyle represented Google and Glassdoor in projects that paved the way for the transformation of Fulton Market and extended Chicago’s central business district to west of the Kennedy Expressway. The economic impact of these transactions on the Fulton Market neighborhood has been estimated at over $8 billion.
