Richwine brings over 35 years of commercial real estate experience and $6 billion in career sales

CHICAGO, May 17, 2016 – @properties Commercial recently announced that Michael Richwine has joined the firm as senior commercial broker. Richwine comes to @properties Commercial from CBRE, where he held various positions over the last 35 years. Most recently, Richwine served as associate director.

In addition to large-scale projects such as Century City Mall in Los Angeles, Calif. and Woodfield Mall in Schaumburg, Ill., Richwine also has experience with small projects including neighborhood centers and leasing assignments.

“While I have been involved in real estate sales and financing all over the U.S., I still believe that real estate is a local business,” said Richwine. “I’m excited to align my business with a local company like @properties Commercial that shares that same belief and is committed to providing the highest level of service.”
