NAI Hiffman Marks 10 Years In Chicago Commercial Real Estate With Industry Milestone
Oakbrook Terrace, IL (March 31, 2010) – On April 1, 2010, NAI Hiffman will mark its 10th anniversary in business by acknowledging the achievement of a significant industry milestone, reporting over 53 million square feet of managed assets to become the largest property management firm in the Chicago area. Ten years ago to the date, the full service commercial real estate company moved into their company headquarters at One Oakbrook Terrace in Oakbrook Terrace, Illinois and set up shop as NAI Hiffman. At that time, they had no management services, making the jump zero to 53 million in 10 years.
The firm was founded in 2000 by Dennis J. Hiffman, Michael Flynn, CCIM, SIOR, John Cash, SIOR, Gerard Keating (who is no longer with the firm), and six other senior brokers with 6 agents and a staff of 10. Since then, the company has grown exponentially to employ 150 commercial real estate professionals, and host 60 commercial agents/brokers. The company was recently named Member Firm of the Year, chosen from over 325 firms around the world, by NAI Global, adding that to their list of accomplishments in 2010.
The company will launch a “10 Years Strong” marketing campaign on April 1 to coincide with their anniversary. “NAI Hiffman has managed to achieve quite a lot in 10 short years,” said Dennis Hiffman, CEO. “Our decision to promote that achievement comes at a time when age in business is not always relevant, and what your company leadership is doing currently is more significant to clients than what happened decades ago.”
“We are thrilled to have the trust of so many exceptional clients, and to be at the top of our game 10 years along,” said David Petersen, COO. “We love what we do and we support and promote that passion and desire for excellence in our employees. That is what, I believe, wins the trust of current and future clients.”
NAI Hiffman’s brokerage disciplines cover industrial, investment sales, office, and retail services with specialty practices in global logistics, lender solutions, medical office and multifamily services.
“We have the great privilege of being locally owned with membership in a global network,” said Michael Flynn, EVP and Managing Director. “This has allowed us the freedom to make Chicago-based decisions that immediately affect our clients, wherever they are located. Sound business management has also meant stability in our company throughout the recession, which also adds to our clients’ faith in our ability to handle their real estate transactions.”
