Chris spent the last decade running 2 Jimmy John’s franchise locations. He was also a partner in 2 Chicago nightclubs and recently incorporated a commercial/residential cleaning company. After realizing real estate would require his full concentration, Chris sold both Jimmy John’s locations and joined Premier Commercial Realty in August 2017. Before ending his run with the franchise, he was recognized by Jimmy John’s corporate for landing in the top 10% of all stores nationwide for sales volume.
Chris is currently a licensed real estate broker and working towards receiving his CCIM (Certified Commercial Investment Member) designation. He believes he will be a leader in the commercial real estate industry since he does not know the words “can’t” or “won’t” and always pushes himself to become the very best that he can be. As a people oriented professional who is extremely personable, Chris has built strong ties with numerous local business owners and has a phenomenal relationship with local bankers. Chris will be teaming up with our seasoned brokers as part of our apprenticeship program.
