I co-founded Triton with Matt Fritzshall in 2016. In my 15 year real estate career I’ve closed over 4,000 units valued over $250 million. My experiences involve urban, suburban, and tertiary Illinois apartment/mixed-use transactions from $500K to $15+ million. Some of these transactions include smaller FHA four flats, larger out of state 400+ unit hotel to apartment conversions, 1031 exchanges, land redevelopment sales, and NNN transactions. My primary focus has been suburban mid-market apartments although my strong relationships within the industry have drawn me other markets. I’ve closed on ~$40 million of either redevelopment or land development sites in Florida which ultimately lead to $100 million+ projects. My clients appreciate my driven nature and ability to solve issues within transactions which lead to successful closings.

I started my real estate career upon graduation from the University of Illinois in 2008 and began working on a top-producing sales team at a national real estate firm. During that time, I analyzed 6,000 units and over $400 million of investment real estate. After six years working with one of the top multifamily teams, I made the move to a smaller local Chicago firm to do brokerage with mid-market apartments for two years. Having worked for a large national real estate firm along with a smaller firm, I took positive attributes of both setting and incorporated them into our more nuanced approach at Triton for our clients and team members.

Outside of the business, I enjoy spending time outside with my wife (Amy), daughter (Luna), and dog (Thor). I try to spend as much time golfing, traveling, and attending sporting events as possible. I am currently a multifamily owner/operator of a handful of buildings on the northside along with properties in Hyde Park.
