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 as well as 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. He was recently named to Crain’s Chicago Business’s 40 Under 40, an annual look at Chicago's top business leaders under the age of 40.
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.
In 2013, Kyle represented Google in a project that anchored the transformation of Fulton Market and extended Chicago’s central business district west of the Kennedy Expressway. In 2016, Kyle represented Glassdoor in a transaction that anchored the Fulton West development and again extended the western boundary of Chicago's central business district further to Ogden Ave. The economic impact of these transactions in the Fulton Market neighborhood has been estimated at over $6 billion.
In addition to his expertise in the Downtown Chicago market, Kyle has established long-term relationships with a number of the world’s leading companies, which have benefited from his representation across the country and on a multi-national level. Over his career, Kyle has managed more than 30 million square feet of real estate transactions valued at more than $15 billion. Kyle is a two-time winner of the prestigious Chicago Commercial Real Estate Development Association (NAIOP) Transaction of the Year Award (2009, 2013), and has also twice won the Crain's Chicago Business Office Deal of the Year Award (2013, 2014).
