Kiser Group adds two advisors and an associate

Chicago-based Kiser Group has hired Refiloe Lethunya and Dan Gabbard as advisors, as well as Michael Yangas as an associate.

Lethunya brings a diverse background in operations and business development to his advisor role. He will focus his brokerage efforts on the northwest neighborhoods of Chicago. Lethunya joins Kiser Group from a career in sales for a large international marketing company. He is also a former European professional basketball player and was a member of the English National team.

Gabbard joins Kiser Group from a commercial real estate brokerage firm in Indiana, where he earned a CoStar Power Broker award for his success there. Having previously worked a spectrum of commercial real estate product types, Gabbard selected Kiser Group to fulfill his goal of specializing in multifamily investment sales. Gabbard will focus on multifamily properties throughout the North Side of Chicago.

Yangas recently completed his degree at Clemson University, where he focused on finance and real estate studies. He joins Kiser Group’s Birk | Sklar team as an associate to support the team with underwriting, market research, business development and due diligence process.

“Although Kiser Group is entering a growth phase, we remain committed to providing only the highest quality advisory and brokerage services possible to our clients, so the integrity, tenacity and savvy of every candidate is carefully considered,” said principal and managing broker, Lee Kiser. “We are thrilled to have Refiloe, Dan and Michael on the team.”
