Knock-out!
Eight bouts of Golden Glove pitted brokers, contractors and architects against each other last night at the Hilton Chicago on South Michigan. Darnell Autry formerly with Jones Lang LaSalle and also a former Northwestern University football star, used the opportunity to advertise his free agent status by wearing a robe with ?Your company name here? stitched on the back. He fought Marcus and Millichap's Michael Bennett  in the final match.
 
Knock-out!
Perkins + Will's Juan Tellez won his match against business associate and friend, GREC Architects' Gary Moad. Joined by Vasilko Architects' Javier Ruiz  and Jorge Tellez and Tunesandsounds.com's Luis Marcel, he says he agreed with Gary not to go too hard in the match, though the three months of training were grueling. The only architect match-up of the evening, Juan tells us it seemed a little less scary than fighting contractors.
