Kiser Group announced Sam Boye and Patrick (Pat) O’Brien as the firm’s newest brokers. Boye, 43, and O’Brien, 30, bring extensive experience across multiple asset classes and varying elements of real estate investment.
“The addition of experienced commercial real estate professionals like Sam and Pat is consistent with Kiser Group’s reputation for providing the highest level of brokerage services to our clients,” said Lee Kiser, principal and managing broker at Kiser Group. “Their past experience further bolsters our team’s valuation and underwriting capabilities. We look forward to Sam and Pat’s success.”
Boye previously worked at Golub & Co., a high-profile Chicago-based commercial real estate investor and developer, where he managed and implemented more than $100 million in value-add renovations. He brings a diverse background in real estate investing, engineering, construction, commercial office and multifamily building operations to Kiser Group’s clients.
“I’ve known and worked with Lee Kiser for years and have always been impressed with Kiser Group,” said Boye. “Having executed numerous multifamily renovations at Golub, I’m looking forward to assisting my clients in finding and executing value-add investments. I will also help Kiser Group clients analyze the best capital expenditures to drive the value of their existing portfolio.”
O’Brien previously led a team at Beitler Real Estate Services, a well-known and influential Chicago-based developer. At Beitler, O’Brien underwrote more than $500 million of value-add, adaptive re-use and development projects across office, hospitality, retail, parking and multifamily asset classes. O’Brien also understands his clients’ investments first-hand, as he personally owns a portfolio of apartment buildings in Chicago.
“Kiser Group brokers represented me when I acquired my own portfolio, and I was impressed by the extent of their market knowledge, valuation techniques and negotiation expertise,” said O’Brien. “As I learned more about Kiser Group and the training provided there, I decided this is the best place to build my brokerage practice. My business plan is to represent clients in the north side neighborhoods of Chicago.”
“Kiser Group has been a market leader since its inception in 2005; however, we are entering a growth phase of our business,” said Kiser. “We have worked hard to systemize our training systems and have created the most lucrative compensation structure for brokers in the industry. We will continue to hire additional brokers and further increase our market share.”
