Interra Realty, a Chicago-based commercial real estate investment services firm, has hired two associates, Coral Christian and Sam Gutierrez, to support the firm’s continued growth as it celebrates its 10th anniversary.
“We’re thrilled to be adding new talent in response to the growth we’ve experienced this year, which speaks to the resilience of the middle-market multifamily market and quality of the team we’ve assembled,” said David Goss, co-founder and managing principal of Interra. “At a time when many brokerages are contracting, we’re expanding because of investors’ flight to quality multifamily assets and their desire to work with experienced brokers who can advise them on their broader investment strategy. Coral and Sam will be great additions to Interra and receive mentoring and coaching from our senior team members to help them learn our hands-on, client-focused approach.”
Christian will work with Brad Feldman, senior managing partner. She previously worked in sales for two Fortune 500 companies, where she built client relationships and learned how to identify and implement actionable solutions to client challenges. Most recently, she sold residential and commercial title insurance in Chicago. A graduate of Georgia Southern University with degrees in marketing and management, Christian is a licensed real estate broker in Illinois.
Gutierrez will work with Lucas Fryman, managing partner. Gutierrez, who is also licensed in Illinois, joins Interra after graduating from Miami University in Ohio, where he earned a B.A. in political science and urban planning. While in school, he completed internships as a multifamily housing development analyst and in energy/sustainability.
Celebrating its 10th anniversary this month, Interra has added brokers and associates almost every year since its inception and today has 24 employees. The company specializes in middle-market multifamily transactions in Chicago and its suburbs.
