November 27, 2023

Essex Realty Group, Inc. is proud to announce that Monarch Realty Partners’ Principals Michael Anguiano and Robert Berman have joined the company as Managing Directors. Other Monarch team members joining Essex are Associates, Jeremy DeMarco, and Daniel Shabsin, as well as Marketing Coordinator, Allie Robson.

Michael and Robert will co-lead a growing, seven-member team focused on multifamily sales throughout Chicago’s South and West side markets. Combined, Michael and Robert bring more than two decades of commercial real estate experience and have sold hundreds of multifamily buildings in their core markets.

“Co-founding and scaling Monarch was the pinnacle of my career”, said Anguiano, “I’m incredibly proud of the team we’ve built. I’ve been friends with Essex principals for many years and this opportunity to continue to expand the team’s production couldn’t have lined up better.”

Berman remarked, “Combining our team’s expertise and South and West side footprint with the Essex platform and its position as Chicago’s most prominent multifamily brokerage will allow us to serve our clients with industry-leading, advisory services. With Essex’s recent launch of Essex Capital Markets, LLC, which provides debt and equity solutions, we will be able to provide even more value to our clients.”

Essex President Brian Kochendorfer added, “The expertise, reputation, and culture of the Monarch team, along with their established track record in Chicago’s South and West side markets, are an ideal fit within Essex – it’s rare to find two groups who so closely align. We feel honored to be joined by such a high quality group of professionals.”
