Why We Are Watching South Side Multifamily Real Estate Closely in 2021
Welcome to “Five Questions,” a monthly series where Essex Realty Group, Inc. brokers share their observations and experiences gained while working in Chicago’s real estate world. This month we are getting to know Essex Director Brian Mond.
About The Broker: Brian Mond joined Essex Realty Group, Inc. in 2016 as a Director with a specific focus on real estate located in the South Side of Chicago. Brian was exposed to real estate at an early age while working in architecture and construction with his family’s business in Argentina. He has acquired, renovated, and leased apartment buildings throughout Chicago since 2010. As a broker and investor, he understands how to navigate the complexities and inner workings of an apartment building sale and what it takes for a sale to occur.
In 2007, Brian graduated from the College of Design at Iowa State University in Ames, IA with a Bachelor of Science degree in Community and Regional Planning. In 2012, he graduated from the Marshall Bennett Institute of Real Estate at Roosevelt University with a Master of Science in Real Estate and was honored as the Hipolito Roldan Scholar.
Brian is involved in several organizations and is on the advisory board of the South Side Builders Association of Chicago. He is very active in team sports including sailing and rugby. Back in Iowa, Brian played rugby until he was injured, but that didn’t stop him from coaching and leading his team, the Cyclones, to State Championship in 2007. Since 2012, Brian has participated in the Chicago to Mackinac Island sailing races and competes regularly in One Design fleets.
