JLL Chicago adds two CRE veterans to office team

JLL has hired commercial real estate experts Scott Brandwein and Jake Ehrenberg. Brandwein joins the firm as managing director and Ehrenberg as executive vice president, both working out of JLL’s headquarters in downtown Chicago.

“Jake and Scott are two outstanding additions to JLL, whom will help us continue to build on our momentum by adding expertise in key areas while growing our revenues and client base,” said Bob Ageloff, leader of JLL Chicago’s tenant representation business. “Their deep experience and market knowledge will further enhance our capabilities to deliver the very best service to our clients locally and globally.”  

Brandwein and Ehrenberg, who bring nearly 50 years of commercial real estate experience to JLL, have represented both tenants and owners and worked on more than $6 billion in projects across leasing, sales, capital markets and consulting.

“This is a tremendous opportunity to bring our growing practice to JLL’s global brand,” said Ehrenberg, a nine-year industry veteran who began his career in commercial property management before joining forces with Brandwein.

“Jake and I are thrilled to join this highly successful and respected JLL team,” said Brandwein. “We look forward to leveraging the firm’s best-in-class global platform and know that our clients will benefit greatly from JLL’s outstanding service offerings and extensive network.”
