REAL Professionals Network Enters Chicago

Chicago Other

Chicago has its commercial real estate networking groups, but this Atlanta import says it boasts an “unfair advantage.” REAL Professionals Network CEO and Grubb & Ellis alum Rick Lackey (right) tells us the group is rolling out in Chicago over the next few weeks for senior-level execs, part of a national expansion plan with investor and tech entrepreneur Michael Podranzhansky (left). The backstory: five years ago Rick began a monthly meeting with 10 other commercial real estate pros to help each other survive the downturn, creating an "unfair advantage" and improving their pipelines with one another's expertise and relationships.
