Each year, Midwest Real Estate News inducts a new class into its Midwest Commercial Real Estate Hall of Fame. Today we look at the busy career of Timothy Kerrigan, principal and managing broker with Investors Realty, Inc. in Omaha, Nebraska.
A lifelong Omahan, Timothy Kerrigan joined Investors Realty, Inc. in 1994. As a vice president with the firm, he focuses mostly on office, land and investment real estate in the Greater Omaha Area.
“I’ve worked in the CRE business for 25 years, all of them with Investors Realty where I was lucky enough to have mentors who taught me how to do the job, shared fees with me before I could really add value and allowed me to work with their most valuable asset, their clients and customers,” Kerrigan said.
He certainly adds value now. Kerrigan has been a leading office broker in Omaha for more than a decade, selling 1.2 million square feet of office product valued at $106 million just in the last two years.
Probably no Omaha-area broker has sold more development land than Kerrigan over the last two decades. He sold the land for Omaha’s two newest industrial parks, R&R Commerce Park and I-80 Logistics Hub, and he has handled the vast majority of all commercial land transactions in Elkhorn, the metro’s dominant west suburban submarket, over the last 25 years due to a relationship he treasurers with the Gottsch Family, a leader in Nebraska agriculture and real estate.
“I enjoy working with interesting people who have had incredible success either in real estate or in other businesses that drive their need for real estate,” Kerrigan said. “Solving problems for people, sometimes large problems, is fulfilling.”
Kerrigan serves on the boards of the Greater Omaha Chamber of Commerce, Mid America Council of Boy Scouts, Baseball Hilltoppers of Nebraska and Countryside Community Church. He is the SIOR Office Oversight Group Chair and SIOR Iowa-Nebraska Chapter President and he serves in leadership positions at other community organizations and industry groups.
Continuing education and service to clients are the bedrock of his real estate practice and service to the community is how he gives back to the community who has given him so much.
