JLL and Arden Realty hosted “Broker Feud”, a broker open house last week at 1111 W 22nd St in Oak Brook. More than 50 brokers competed for the $1,000 grand prize. One team, The Over-Negotiators, above: Chicagoland Commercial’s Lindsay Borkan, Cawley Commercial Real Estate’s Rawly Lantz, Cresa’s Matthew Schiffler, Colliers’ Dougal Jeppe, and Tenant Advisors’ Dave Hamilton. On the right is JLL VP Bruce Renwick channeling his inner Richard Dawson as game show host, emcee, and “king of the one-liners.” Questions ranged from pop culture to real estate (i.e. What are the top ways to ruin a tour?).
The Over-Negotiators emerged victorious. Here’s the check presentation, with Bruce and Arden Realty’s senior portfolio leasing manager Laura Collins. The Nibblers (NAI’s Aubrey Van Reken, CBRE’s Bill Elwood, JLL’s Kevin Rogers, CBRE’s Pete Adamo, and Chicagoland Commercial’s Jack Sanders) came in second. JLL’s Jeff Shay, Karla Harmon, Bruce, and Matt Hickey are the leasing agents for Arden’s 3M SF East-West Corridor office portfolio, which includes 1111 W 22nd, as well as Westbrook Corporate Center, Oakbrook Terrace Tower, Commerce Plaza, and One Lincoln Centre.
