Kiser Group’s Noah Birk and Aaron Sklar Broker 358 Apartment Units This Year to Date

CHICAGO, IL - Kiser Group’s Partner Noah Birk and Senior Director Aaron Sklar have brokered 358-units and 19 buildings throughout Chicago’s south side neighborhoods in 2019. The south side duo focuses their brokerage efforts in south side neighborhoods such as Chatham, Marquette Park, South Shore and Woodlawn.

“So far in 2019, interest levels and activity for multifamily product in Chicago’s South Side neighborhoods have been at an all-time high,” said Partner Noah Birk. “While many may think it has to do with Opportunity Zones, we do not see that investment strategy moving the needle. Rather, investors that are priced out of other markets are moving their capital into these neighborhoods because of attractive cash-on-cash returns and appreciating property values.”
